You will get a phone call from the customs person at Fed Ex when it arrives. They will fax you (or email) a form that is easy to fill out. You fax it back and you have your bag the next day. You get a bill for the duty a few weeks later.

chloe babe - check the websites (chloe, style.com for past season), mark down your must haves, and then have hubby grab everything! there was a chloe skirt on NAP for $1200 but in the paris boutique, it was on sale (plus its cheaper there) the skirt was a shocking $400!! thats more than half!

morri - when you saw it irl, was it even more wrinkly? what was the leather like?

There's a Chloe in Bahrain??? my husband is there right now. Though sending him shopping for a handbag might result in culture shock.

Thanks! I just realized it's quite a bit cheaper in europe when looking at LVR and was intrested in a few pieces... I'm going to try to figure out how to fax the pictures internationally too

A wire transfer, is that like western union? Or is it when it goes directly to their bank account? I think WU would cost just about as much as I would save by going through europe.

hm.. a lot of expats live there (+michael jackson.. although he's more shocking than any form of culture shock..) and they have excellent english and service.. cheaper than the US bc of the conversion rate as well.. i know a lot of TFSers have had great experiences with them from the paddy thread

gg - yeah wire transfer is when it goes directly into their account. fendi paris does this 100% but not sure about paris.. i know the rate from US to Asia is about $10 though.. lets hope they take cc.. if not, a certified cheque via registered mail would cost about $20 total incl bank fees..

FYI, called Chloe NY today to get on the list for the whiskey Edith. They're not carrying it in whiskey. I don't get it. All of the ads show the bag in whiskey, yet the Chloe boutique isn't getting that color???? Very odd, IMO. They are getting chocolate brown and tan. And the tan is not the whiskey, according to the SA I spoke with.

Hmmm... apparently the entire country of Bahrain is in mourning for the King's son who died in an auto accident this past weekend, so nothing is supposed to be open. But in any case I have DH shopping for pearls; will leave the handbag hunt to me.

It looks like LVR is no longer taking orders for the whiskey Edith. They must have hit their max.
