The early girl gets her shoes. That was certainly the case at today's Jimmy Choo sale at Chelsea's Metropolitan Pavilion. I stopped by after work to check out the madness and left empty handed. A well-dressed fellow shopper told me she was hoping to come across some Choos for work. But it was too late to find anything worth buying tonight. The only shoes up for gra[...]
There weren't many takers tonight at the Max Mara sale. That's probably because there wasn't anything fabulous to buy - despite the racks upon racks of merchandise.

I just knew that it was a chic Italian-made handbag of exquisite leather. When I travel abroad, I try to look for interesting unique things that can't be found here. Of course, when I learned about this week's Francesco Biasia sale, I h[...]
