I was thinking about a comment a friend of mine made to me about how lucky I was to live in the US (most of the time). She lives in Asia and had to import an iPhone from Australia for around $1000. When my contract expires, I should be able to upgrade my phone to the same one for about $200. iPhones here in Europe are not much cheaper than what my friend had paid for hers. In spite of its economic meltdown, there’s probably still no bigger consumer paradise than the US. And I’m writing this while thinking about the upcoming Versace for H&M and Harajuku Mini for Target collaborations, both of which I’ll unfortunately miss while still overseas…though it may all be for the best since I’m still recovering from the last bout with Missoni for Target, not to mention the flashbacks I’m still suffering from the Lanvin/H&M debacle!
But the thing about shopping is that there’s always something else around the corner. Which brings me to the crux of today’s post. I need help. Karl Lagerfeld and Sephora are releasing a collection this week just in Europe (though they won’t specify where exactly) and Singapore. The collab consists of a few makeup items, the snowglobe, and the KL doll. I’ve called quite a few Sephoras in Europe, hit a few language snags, and so far no luck. Either the store will not be getting the merchandise at all or they’ve never even heard of Karl. I know, say it ain’t so, but the world actually does not revolve around all things KL to my dismay.
So if you live in Europe or Singapore and have come across the two items in my pics today, please let me know which store exactly. Don’t think the idea of hitting every single Sephora on this continent didn’t cross my mind, but alas, I don’t have that kind of time luxury :D!
And yes, I know a woman of my age has no business buying another doll, but it makes a nice companion to my Tokidoki KL doll. As for the snowglobe? Well, I think his quote pretty much sums it up for me (rough translation: my great luxury is not having to justify myself to anyone). I couldn’t have said it better.
