GARMENT DISTRICT—Brace yourself: Dates for the Christian Louboutin sample sale have been revealed. Next Wednesday, May 12 is the preview, and the sale opens to the public at 8am on Thursday, May 13. (We hear it's at 306 W. 38th Street on the fourteenth floor, but check back later for confirmation.) Thursday also happens to be the date of the Opening Ceremony sale; of course, we'll be liveblogging them both. [LilaDelilah/Twitter; Previously]
