*SAMPLE SALE* Sampling Sandro's Sale

The French have a certain je ne sais quoi in the way they put together cool everyday outfits. Thankfully, minimalistic yet feminine Parisian brand Sandro opened a store on this side of the ocean in 2011 and gave us New Yorkers an opportunity to imitate the Parisian style. Now, after three years stateside, the label's inaugural sample sale is upon us.

*SAMPLE SALE* Manolo Blahnik

It's that time of year, folks. The autumn season Manolo Blahnik sample sale is here and it's happening TODAY at 12pm. With stilettos starting at $100, this sale is a shoeaholic's fantasy come true. At this year's May sample sale (photos: here & here), mounds of plastic-bagged shoes not only covered the 15 or so tables but also littered the hotel carpet floor. Shoppers lucky enough to attend found a diverse range of pumps, sandals, exotics, and boots. As always, dropping by an ATM is a must as this is a cash-only event. Happy Shopping!

Where: Warwick Hotel, 65 W 54th St. (near 6th Ave.), 2nd Floor

When: Wednesday, October 29th, 12pm

*SAMPLE SALE* The Pursuit of Happy-ness

As reported last night, there is a Lanvin sample sale currently taking place in Midtown. The scoop sent in by a lovely tipster sounded so deliciously tempting that I decided to cancel my Tuesday morning plans and instead drop by the sale to see what kind of goodies Lanvin fans were being offered. After checking out the sale, I learned that the pursuit of Happy-ness will only cost you a fifth of what it retails for.

*LOOK BOOK* Sézane for Madewell

Madewell's newest collaboration with Parisian contemporary brand Sézane will sweep any Francophile fashionista off her feet. The lineup includes both brand's signature tomboy aesthetics as well as many wearable autumnal separates. It's the perfect marriage between American casual and Parisian cool.

Ooh la la, quelle surprise! I've just been informed by a kind fellow Mizhattanite (a big smooch to C!) that French fashion house Lanvin will be hosting a private sample sale in Midtown this week. The sale starts tomorrow and will go on until the end of this week. The inventory will consist of Ready-to-Wear, shoes, and accessories. Markdowns will be 80% off retail. Sadly, because this sale is labeled as a private event, there will be name checking at the door. However, the optimistic side of me can't help but feel they will loosen the door policy as the sale progresses. Therefore, for those who are intrepid enough, I wish you the best of luck!

Where: 37 W. 57th St. (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.), #900

When: Tuesday, October 28th, 9am~7pm
Wednesday, October 29th, 9am~7pm
Thursday, October 30th, 9am~7pm
Friday, October 31st, 9am~7pm
Saturday, November 1st, 10am~4pm
