If you didn't get your fill at the Jimmy Choo or Manolo Blahnik sample sales (or if you couldn't make it inside), there's another on the horizon: the infamously hard to get into Christian Louboutin sale, which is scheduled to begin on Monday and runs all week. Getting in without an invite isn't easy, but it's possible—according to some who have successfully tried it.
One of our own commenters writes: "I've gotten into the Louboutin sale for the past couple of years without an invite. You just need to be confident, look good, and flirt with the right people." Mizhattan also adds in her own comments section, "The last day is your best bet for getting in without an invite. But honestly, if you have that extra extra boost of confidence, any day will work. I remember seeing one shopper throwing a fit about how she was on the list. She was let in." Thoughts?
