Hey girls who are Manolo addicts and who live in New York, I have a secret for you. Manolo’s secret sample sale!!!
Usually reserved for editors and fashion insiders the Manolo sale is renowned as a full-on fashion event. Gossips say that
that this season’s sale will feature Vogue’s contributing editor and America’s Next Top Model judge, André Leon Talley.
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. Hopefully all the publicity of the sale won’t change the rules a bit.
So here is the info
Manolo Blahnik Sample Sale
Thursday, April 29, 2010
The Warwick Hotel
54th Street and 6th Avenue

Enjoy it girls and if you cannot take the sample crowds, check out your local Saks Off 5th outlet store.
Secret has been revealed that the shoe department is very well stocked with Manolos– all priced in the $200 range. It’s not a $100 and there’s no ALT but we found patent lather, high heel, Marry Janes and they come with a return option.

All my friends know that I am a shoe addict, when I see a pair that I love, I need to have them, and sometimes I am ashamed of the price that I put in shoes. Once of my bosses in the past even proposed me to pay with shoes instead of money. What can I say some people invest in property, I invest in shoes…

I have purchased my first Louboutin, couple of years ago when I first created my company in NY to congratulate myself… I had to have one, because I thought it was very sexy wearing those red sole pumps.
You have to understand, wearing a Louboutin is not that easy, you have to have very thin toes, otherwise you might need to cut your fourth finger. At the beginning, I remember having tears in my eyes cause I wanted to keep them all night long.
But with time you learn, some put some Vaseline in their toes (be careful to not put too much cause you risk the fly), my trick is to buy a size bigger to have more space in the front, and believe it or not train myself to wear them. And it works; now I have several “les putains” as I call them and they are among my most comfy shoes.

When I moved back to Geneva, I was very sad, because there was only one store selling them but only basics that I already owned, so I needed to travel again to buy them.
But good news Geneva, since December, Geneva has its own Louboutin store…
I have tried to be strong and not go to the store, but today I had to go… come on, I just came from detox and lost weight, and when some people buy clothes to celebrate that, I need to buy shoes ;)
So after lunch I went to their store in rue du Rhone (which is our Via Montenapoleone, or our Madisson Avenue). It is a beautiful store on two levels, I highly advise to check upstairs as well, the working staff is very helpful and sweet. And the most important, they have a great selection, and they have sizes.
While I was trying my future adopted kids, the store was very busy. And almost everyone was leaving with at least one pair of “les putains”.
I guess the crisis is not touching the sexy red sole pumps in Geneva!!!!
