Here's some good news to brighten up this dreary Wednesday: Jimmy Choo's semi-annual sample sale is now open to the public! A brand representative tells Racked that there's still plenty of men's and women's shoes, handbags, small leather goods, belts, and scarves to shop today at Metropolitan Pavilion (123 West 18th Street), with shoe prices starting at $200.
The sale is only running until 4pm, and those who had been invited when the sale was for friends and family only will be able to cut the line upon arrival—so if you're planning to pop over on your lunch break, you could face a bit of a wait.
