The Charlotte Ronson sample sale is underway in midtown. Our field team reports merch priced at $15, $30, $50, $70 and $90 and—we're going to be giddy!—flats for $10 and wedges for $15. The doors opened quietly around 9:45 and there are no crowds just yet. Color from the sales floor: "I'm the only one here. Gotta go buy stuff, kbye." [RackedWire]
