Today the Manolo Blahnik sample sale kicked off without a hitch. The sale officially opened to the public at noon and as promised, shoppers were ushered into the sale promptly according to their ticket letter, which started with A and spanned the alphabet.
As anticipated, the sale was well stocked with a wide assortment of shoe styles and sizes. The bulk of the inventory was size 7 and slimmest selection was size 8 through 9.5. Basic shoes start at $100 and prices go up to $500 for high exotic boots. We were especially happy to find a nice assortment of booties from the prior season. Even ALT said agreed that they were "very high fashion."
Remember, Friday is the last day. We suggest getting a ticket early and coming back later. Also, the sale is cash only, so you might want to hit the ATM on 55th and 6th.
