James Perse sample sale, Chelsea

So here I am in France with maybe 20% of my clothes and 10% of my shoes. I have to say it's been a lot of fun (so far) living here, and there are lots of things I have totally embraced-- the 3x a week farmer's market with the absolute best fruit, drinking all the time, and living a little more simply. But maybe they do it too simply... did you know the French take siestas!?! No joke, most stores are closed from noon-2PM (something a New Yorker found outrageously frustrating). Given that they open at 9AM, or even 10, and close at 5:30, it gives new meaning to the term "banker's hours".

One one hand, I am getting a seriously good education (or so I hope) and meeting lots of great people. On the other hand, I miss having time to do online shopping, blogging (!), and participate in things like Fashion's Night Out. I'm missing the my favorite sample sale and the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and Derek Lam is there. Just typing that makes me want to bang my head against a wall.

I'm trying to figure out this whole shopping-in-France thing. For one, everything is just more expensive. Really, given how affordable everything is in the US, I'd hate Americans too. Monoprix, which I liken to Target-level clothes, sells tops at 40-90€ ($56-126 USD), which I am just not used to. I can make $125 go a long way in New York! I guess I'm totally spoiled, because walking around, I think to myself, I can get Burberry pants for 200€ back home rather than some random boutique brand. So needless to say, I am not doing much shopping here. YOOX.com for the US is infinitesimally better for Americans too, which makes me scratch my head. After all, most of those goods are European labels, so how is it cheaper for goods made here to sell there? So what I've learned: if you live in the US, don't feel guilty about buying. Lots. :) I am definitely shopping online and sending things to New York, for my hubby to bring in October.

This brings me to what I'm missing now: the James Perse sample sale in Chelsea Market. I really wish I was there to stock up on cold weather tops :(

What: James Perse sample sale, Chelsea Market
Where: Chelsea Market, 75 9th Ave
When: Friday, Sep 16 - Sunday, Sep 18; times unknown

Not sure when I will post again. I'm trying to see if there's anything to be learned about sample sales in Paris. I hear they do exist-- fingers crossed!

As I did some online browsing (and shopping) to bulk up my cool-weather wear for France, I came across a nice stash of Rachel Roy Signature pieces on YOOX.com for $45+.

Harry Potter tickets available, NYC

Not fashion-related, but I thought I'd ask my readers first before I returned them. I have 3 tickets to the 12:10AM showing of Harry Potter 7.2 at Regal Cinemas Union Square (not 3D). Luckily I got tickets to the Amex pre-screening uptown at 7PM, and neither my husband nor my friend will watch it again with me at 12:10 :(

All the screenings at Regal Union Sq are sold out until 2:30AM, so, if you're interested, let me know! Face value is $13.50 each, and I can send you a PDF for each individual ticket. I'll end up returning them tomorrow night if, like all good Harry Potter fans, everyone already has their tickets! I'm so excited!! :)

Using those postage-paid return labels

Online shopping will sooner or later necessitate a return. I don't return things that often, so I don't play favorites to stores that offer free return shipping (though I guess I should). But I've always wondered what margin stores make on those postage-paid return labels. What is the cost of convenience?

Since I needed to go to the post office anyway to mail a friend's birthday present, I brought along my Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman returns and mailed them parcel post instead of using the return labels. Here are the results of my little experiment.

Cost of shipping via return label: $6.00
Cost of shipping via parcel post: $7.35 (NYC to Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
Savings: -$1.35

Bergdorf Goodman / Neiman Marcus
Cost of shipping via return label: $9.95
Cost of shipping via parcel post: $7.65 (NYC to Dallas, TX)
Savings: $2.30

Conclusion: Always use the shipping label if the fee is $7.50 or less, but honestly, if I had no reason to go to the post office, would I mind spending an extra $2.35 to avoid walking in the heat and waiting in line next to weird people complaining about Glenn Beck? Probably not.

Happy Holidays!!! I wish everyone a fabulous 4th of July filled with sales, sun, and fireworks!
