Notes of a shopaholic

Wednesday, June 11, 2003:

I had a Bluefly credit burning a hole in my computer, so I snagged these jeans from Diesel Stylelab with paint splatter effect for 49.99. Got free shipping with code PRADA42. Belatedly discovered that 'free shipping' means an eight dollar discount off your purchase, not free shipping, so if I have to return them I still get stuck with the shipping cost.

I throw together some stuff from recent Times features on men's fashion, and am rewarded with the presumed love of my internet audience. Maureen Dowd does same and makes a mid-six figure salary. What's wrong with this picture?

You can't blame me for the drop in men's clothing sales. I was in NYC this weekend, and although I'm quite broke, I pulled out the credit card for a pair of red Camper-style shoes for $30, and a shirt at Zara for $33. I'm suprised the Spanish chain Zara gets less press than H&M. It offers quite cutting edge stuff for very reasonable prices. A lot of stuff there--including the shirt, which has a floral pattern printed over a plaid--seemed to be influenced by Commes des Garcons. They even had an evening wear selection for men, a concept nearly unheard of in the US. Meanwhile, I must be the only shopper in the US dissappointed that the new Barneys Co-op store in Soho has nothing for men.
