Spy missions notoriously go wrong. Like the CIA, Mad-Spy sometimes receives bad information. We apologize for any inconvenience that our inaccuracies could have caused. We have updated the post to reflect-- what we hope to be-- the correct information.
The Christian Louboutin invitation only sample sale is one of the most coveted shopping tickets in town. It's the sale everyone loves to hate. The sale takes place in the corporate showroom and the security is tight and there's a clear mean-girls hierarchy to who is invented to shop first.
The most important Louboutin insiders, glossy magazine editors and celebrities, have been invited to begin shopping on Monday. The sale extends all week as the invited guest list expands to allow general press and "friends and family."
Most shoe styles range in price from $250 to $500. There is always a very limited assortment of men's sneakers and shoes, which range $300 to $400 depending on the detail. During the last sale our VIP snoops reported that most shoppers were buying in bulk -- meaning that most shoppers ended up with at least ten pairs of shoes each.
If you're considering door-busting this sale, we suggest that you use your best technique starting Wednesday. Be forewarned, at the last sale, there were three layers of clip-boards: one in the lobby, another at the elevator and a third in the showroom.
Good luck and we will continue to keep you posted.
