Posted in Handbags & Accessories, Manolo Blahnik with tags , , , on April 22, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Ok girls, this is the real deal!! a fashion spy birdie just told us! The secret Manolo Blahnik Spring sale is back and Andre Leon Taley is the host for the event. Now get your credit cards ready, put your foot on the gas and hold on to your pumps. The Manolo Blahnik sale are usually reserved for editors and fashion insiders the Manolo sale is renowned as a full-on fashion event.

We hear that this season’s sale will feature Vogue’s contributing editor and America’s Next Top Model judge, Andre Leon Talley. He will be playing the role of Prince Charming and help women slip into their perfect shoe on Thursday, April 29th. As we all know Mr. Leon Talley is a fashion icon! So to meet him in person, that may be reason alone to attend. Everything is more fun when Andre Leon Taley is present.

At previous sample sales leather heels started at $100. Usually the morning of the sale is reserved for press and insiders and the afternoon is open to the public.

For those of you who are unnerved by sample sale crowds ( like the infamous Barneys New York warehouse sale! Yes you can find great designer goods in bargain price there, But if you have been to the Barneys Warehouse sale then you know how scary those female (or fabulous gays) shopper could be! Everyone is like on a mission, pushing, elbowing to name a few to get their well manicured hands on that Balenciaga it bag or Helmut Lang Jeans!) or you do not live in the city I love, New York City, then take a browse through your local Saks Off 5th outlet store. We recently found the shoe department to be very well stocked with Manolos and all priced in the $200 range. I know it’s not as glamorous as going to the Manolo sale in NYC, It’s not a $100 and there’s no Andre Leon Talley but we found patent leather, high heel, Marry Janes and they come with a return option. (Not all of us are as rich as the Sex and the city girls right?! )

So write this down on to your blackberry , refrigerator and on your bathroom mirror to remind yourself of this event !!

Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale

Thursday, April 29, 2010 – 9 AM ~ 11 AM

The Warwick Hotel (54th Street and 6th Avenue)

What insiders don’t know is that the doors open up to the public after 11 a.m ! The only ones who know about this well-guarded secret? Loyalists who are in with the store clerks and friends of editors.

How can we mention Manolo Blahnik without thinking of the show/movie Sex and the City ?! here is a video

I am warming up my American Express Black Card and ready to shop !!

Until next time, be well and look fabulous ( in your Manolo Blahniks!! )
