The VIP day of the Christian Louboutin sample sale starts today, despite the now-infamous decoy sign (above) that we found on the doors of the brand's midtown officies. It sternly instructs onlookers that "there is no sample sale at this time," however, here's a tweet that says the exact opposite: "#ChristianLouboutin VIP sample sale day is crazy good. No lines, no crowds, tons of shoes! And Amanda Lepore is trying on shoes next to me."
As you may recall, Amanda Lepore "demanded to be let in first" at last year's sale (and of course, was). Hopefully she hasn't cleared the place out for when the sale "doesn't" continue throughout the week.
