So here is my wrap up on my Manolo adventure. It turns out the Christian Louboutin sample sale was postponed till next week. I had already decided to go to the Manolo sample sale so I can take a picture of Fashionista  Andre Leon Talley for my good friend Petal ( a Trinidadian friend ), it made me feel better that I will still be able to hit up the Louboutin sale next Tuesday after all. My partner in crime was a mummy friend of mine Laura, we met up after school drop off  and headed to Manhattan. The sale took place at The Warwick Hotel, it was mayhem to say the least. As soon as I entered into the room, I bee-lined straight over to Andre Leon Talley himself to get his picture ( Petal all for you babes). The first photo is blurry, a bit of the jitters, sucks since it the one he actually posed for me, he was gracious and kind, I was expecting a Diva attitude, not at all from Mr. Talley. Then it was onto manic searching for Manolo’s in our sizes, fortunately for Laura there were more samples in her size 40 than in mine 38. The sale had great deals, a pair of gold Manolo booties for $175 …hello lova as Laura purred. Hope you enjoy my photo diary of my Manolo adventure ( they are not the best, was too busy looking for shoes)… Next week Louboutin… Woo Hoo

Hi Petal,

It was a blast indeed and the shoesssssssss !!!! New York City is just so fabulous all the time to me, even if it just walking around my little neighborhood in Brooklyn . Stay tune for my Louboutin adventure. I am now hearing it is INVITE and by appointment ONLY but I got that all squared away, you know me !!!!!!

Wow, Namia, that’s so cool! I wish I knew about this sale and the Charles L. Sale- getting an invite. As a teacher, a sample sale would be ideal for me. I can’t wait to read your blog. I love reading all about your adventures.

Hi Deborah,

Thanks for all the support, I truly appreciate it. It was an adventure for sure yesterday at Manolo’s sample sale. Sample sales are the ultimate for anyone on a budget , I will try and list them earlier, the ones that are open to the public.
