False alarm: The Manolo Blahnik sale is not today. Turns out the Blahnik sale is next week.
Seems as if team MB didn't appreciate the pre-publicity and is poised to maintain an invite-only policy. For the "first time, the invite came with very specific instructions that it is private only and not to share the information," we were warned. For now, we are putting our chips on May 14 but will keep you posted if new information emerges.
The tale from Christian Louboutin is no different. We have confirmed with the company that the sale is scheduled to take place from May 12 to May 14. We were also assured that the invite-only policy will be "strictly enforced."
It's been a sole crushing day for shoe lovers.
