Coming Soon: Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale

Once upon a time the Manolo Blahnik sample sale was a no-brainer. There was a great assortment of shoes and the prices were absolutely amazing. As time has gone on, the assortment has become smaller and the crowds have become insane.

One way Manolo & Co. has dealt with the crowds is to reduce public shopping hours customers. This season, the sale officially begins on Wednesday for invitees and press. Shoppers like, you and me, aren't welcome to shop until noon on Thursday. By the time we get in, you can expect that the inventory will be reduced to least desirable shoes in the most extreme of sizes.

The one shimmer of hope is that prices still start at just $100. Personally, we prefer shopping the sales in the boutique. Trying on shoes while sitting on leather banquettes and taking our purchases home in boxes is always worth the extra money. You can read our Manolo Blahnik sample sale survivor's guide here or hop over here to understand the experience of the boutique's final markdown.

I am sadden by this news.12pm is the starting time?! I was planning to come in early before work as I always had in the past, but May 2013's fiasco changed all of that :(
Amid all the craziness last year, I won't be surprised if one day they get rid of the public day sale altogether. Thanks a lot psycho hoarders. You've really ruined a true gem ;(
