Maybe you can't sneak into the Christian Louboutin sample sale today (or ever), but another high-end brand has quietly opened its doors to the public. The formerly private Fendi sale at Metropolitan Pavilion has unlocked the doors to its employee event and will now let mere mortals shop shoes, bags, ready-to-wear, and more for 70%—95% off. The catch? It's only open until 7pm tonight. [Mizhattan]
