  1. Is the 9am start for Manolo sale still just for VIPs or is it general public this time?

    1. The 6th will be public from the beginning, so get there early.

  2. Do you know if the Alexis Bittar sale is cash only again this year?

  3. How is the diesel sale?

    1. terrible. i wouldn't recommend it unless you need some sneakers and fit the sample size, 9.5 and 7 is it? at $40, there were lots to choose from. the jeans rack was sparse for men and for women, mostly bell bottoms and bootcut. mens tees pickings were very slim, mostly sz L and XL but not in great shape. there seemed to be some black gold pieces but priced high. hopefully they'll bring more stock out AND lower prices.

  4. There was a lot of merchandise at Alexis Bittar but despite the discounts, I still couldn't find something I was willing to splurge on.

  5. Dear Miz,
    Do you know if Manolo will use the same number system they have in the past?
    Thank you!

    1. As this is a rescheduled event and the first time the public will be able to enter from the beginning of the day, I can't really say how things will work. But I don't see why they won't be going with the same system. If I hear otherwise, I will make sure to update. As of now, I suggest getting there as early as possible.

  6. Thanks for all the great updates and listings Miz! What do you suggest to be a reasonable time to get there if I want to be among the first group in? 6am/7am or earlier?

    1. I can't tell you what the turnout will be this time but, in the past, going at 6-7am did insure you would be in one of the first groups.

    2. Dear Miz,
      Do you know what happens if people come in the afternoon? Will the number system still be used?

    3. I'm sorry, I'm not sure what will happen in the afternoon of the public day as I've only attended press day or the morning of the public day.

  7. This is regarding the Manolo sale. Thanks!

  8. Hello!

    I hope this is an appropriate place to post my query (especially on such short notice)... I'd like to go to the Hanro sample sale, and can get there by 2pm today. But I was wondering if it'd be better to go mid-afternoon today or wait until tomorrow and get there quite early in the morning?

    Much obliged!

    1. I would go today. I don't think today's turnout is bad enough that you'll be waiting long.

  9. Manolo has a whole lot of shoes for 37 - 3 entire tables, while other sizes, including 37.5, only have 1 each. No buckle satin stiletto left, but other straps/suede/lace have plenty left - given you are 37. A few bootie styles, a few tall boots, not much to talk about. Lots of people, but civil if we lower the bar to sample sale level. So, again, if you are 37, go!
