Christian Louboutin sample sale he-said-she-said

Update from a commenter! It *may* be worth the effort to try and get in for sizes 35-37. Hmmm, do I dare? And going on since Monday?? Why were those Glamour girls tweeting about 6:30 AM or some crap like that? I would just say if you want to go, be prepared! They know that 'public' day is tomorrow, so they might be extra-vigilant in minding their guest list.

"just got back - if you are a size 35 - 37 you so in luck. very hard to get in - they really want your name on the list. but at 2 there was no line out the door.

also - it has actually been going on since monday."
Update: FYI, I have it from a very good source that they will not be letting the public in to this sale. If you're not on the list, you're not getting in. They just don't want to deal with the crowds.

Even more so than the Manolo sale, the Christian Louboutin sale has traditionally be shrouded in secrecy. And unlike the Manolo sale, they have not let the public in on the goods (well, until last year, but I bet if you asked they would still deny it). is all over it.

Information out there:
VIP day: Wednesday, May 12; 8AM-5PM
Potentially public sale: Thursday, May 13; 8AM-5PM
Where: 306 W 38th St

There is a RSVP email address for the sale which currently has an auto-respond that reads:
Thank you for your RSVP. The list for the Christian Louboutin PRIVATE, INVITE ONLY sample sale is now closed.
Um, okkk. Pretty angry. I'm thinking that they will not be lenient like Manolo, so if you want to go, you better be a really good sweet-talker.

Neiman Marcus first day savings

Today and tomorrow ONLY, Neiman Marcus is taking 30% off a LOT of good stuff. And when I say good stuff, I mean you need to get yourself a Herve Leger dress. Or some Wolford tights. Whatever. But get something good because 30% off hot in-season items doesn't happen very often.

... more Louboutin find

Another pair of Loubs popped up on! Priced at $385 (which is probably only a smidge more than you'd find at their now-closed-off sample sale), it's a great summer shoe, and while the description says "acid green", I'm thinking bright yellow is probably more the color, which is perfect for summer! But I suppose if it IS acid green there's always the return policy! Plus, shipping is free right now, so if you wear sizes 35.5, 36.5, or 38, you might want to think about it.

POSH benefits Lighthouse International, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to fighting vision loss through prevention, treatment and empowerment.

Update: As a commenter points out, there is a "up to 90% off clearance" section, but when I gave it a browse, it looked like old Sample Sale stuff to me. BUT, if you have the inclination, it might be worth a look...

Sunday, May 9, 2010 offering 10 Euro int'l shipping

I've always liked looking at the sale stuff on, but the 45 Euro shipping was always too much for me to bear! Although, to be fair, it is 2-day international via DHL, but I'd rather just order from YOOX or theOutnet! (Both of which are free shipping, by the way. No code for YOOX, but use "FreeShipBday" for theOutnet.)

Well, until Tuesday, May 11 MyTheresa is offering 10 Euro international shipping, which comes out to about $12.75. Not bad, so I pulled the trigger on some YSL boots which were marked down to $372 :D Not to be insensitive, but I am really celebrating the fact that the Euro is coming down!!! Now I can finally take a vacation to Europe!

But, I found out after-the-fact (after some internet research), that I should expect to pay customs via DHL, which could be anywhere between 14-18%. Boo! Adding another potential $66 would make it less of a deal, but they are so cute, no?

Friday, May 7, 2010 free shipping is doing free shipping through Monday, May 17. On ANYTHING! Hurrah, that's an instant $9.50 savings-- time to check out my Dream Box!

P.S. - I did notice that a few of my items got discounted FINALLY (like Nina Ricci). So maybe some of your stuff did too!

P.P.S. - I got a couple of La Perla bras--- GREAT prices on those, as well as some cute La Perla bikinis. Which I would have gotten, if ever I went in the sun.

Vivienne Tam sample sale report

Girls who love Vivienne Tam -- you must go to this sample sale. And if you are a sample size (size 0-4) or her equivalent sizes 0 or 1, you MUST go!

The sale is 75% samples and 25% overstock with some shoes and totes as well. As my new year's resolution, I've lost 15 pounds and NONE of my clothes fit anymore. This is both good news and bad. Good because I can wear size 27 jeans, but bad because I've amassed this huge designer closet of size 6 clothing that I can't wear anymore!!

SO, with great relish I attacked the racks and racks of samples! Lots of dresses, some tops, and some little jackets, all priced between $40-90. It's not super organized, so you'll have to do some searching.

I scored a gorgeous black fitted dress with white embroidery (which I think I'll wear to my boss' wedding) for $85 ('retail' $400) and a white cotton day dress for $60 ('retail' $375). I also got a little black shrug/jacket for $70 ('retail' $275). I say 'retail' because although they are priced out on the tags, obviously they were never on the showroom floor.

The samples are all high quality-- finished zippers, clean seams, no tears. Some of them do have stains, so you'll have to be careful. And since they are samples, there are very few pieces of each item. The woman at the counter let me know that they WILL be restocking the samples, although not the overstock.

The overstock includes tops, dresses, pants, and coats all priced between $75-180. There were some really gorgeous dupioni silk dresses that sold on the high end ($180) and cotton fabric day dresses and ruffle-y dresses that sold for less ($120-160). Overall a fabulous place to go for dresses!! The tops were ruffled or embellished and still around the $70-80 mark.

They all have Vivienne Tam labels sewn in, but they will cut the price tags off when you check-out. There is no dressing room, so be prepared to strip down! It wasn't very crowded when I went during the lunch boom, and there are a lot of Asian women there working who will help you zip up and tell you if it's too tight.

Other than clothing there is a small selection of summer sandals (mostly chunky heels) for $70 and floral totes for $70.

No sales tax on items under $110 and they take credit card. As I mentioned, they are restocking samples, so I am definitely thinking of a return trip! Friday is the last day, and for that I was told they usually discount 20% off your purchase of $500+.

A 1.5hr lunch break well worth it!!
