Jimmy Choo Sample Sale in Chelsea Heats up...

At high noon on Wednesday, the summer heat didn't stop women from lining up for the Jimmy Choo sample sale in Chelsea's Metropolitan Pavilion on 18th Street.  I stopped by just before the doors opened to meet a friend who was already there waiting in line.  We all stood on the sunny side of the street so it was HOT.  Today's line was manageable.  Not like the one back[...]
