It's day two of the Manolo Blahnik sale at the luxury brand's boutique on West 54th Street, and it seems that the event is still relatively calm. A shopper writes: "Hi - I went to the Manolo Blahnik sale at their midtown store today over lunch. It was not very crowded at all, which was very surprising! They have a good selection of mostly heeled or flat sandals marked with colored dots to tell you the price. Most were still $200 or over, which is a pretty good deal considering that original price tags are usually $600 and up, but no bargain prices to be had. Just don't go between 2:00 and 3:00, it seems that's when they close to restock!" [Racked Inbox; Photo credit]
