On The Down Low In Tiffany’s: Was That Iman’s ‘It’ Purse We Saw On A Patron?

December 7, 2009

We were in Tiffany & Co. at the Short Hills Mall in Jersey Sunday, just browsing. We spotted a customer carrying a handbag that looked very much like the satchel Iman, David Bowie’s wife, does for HSN.

The Tiffany’s saleswoman complimented the patron on her purse. The customer didn’t anything. We saw the purse’s logo, and it, again, suspiciously looked like the logo for Iman’s Global Chic HSN collection.

Fess up, lady! Admit it was from HSN.

The “It” satchel from Iman goes for $120.

Now You Can Get Your Godiva Chocolate, And Chocolate-Scented Candles, At QVC

November 28, 2009

Premium sweets are coming to QVC: Godiva Chocolates arrive next Friday.

The No. 1 home shopping channel will have a half-hour show, from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., where it will debut the tasty chocolates. Godiva is usually sold in company-owned stores in malls or in department stories such as Lord & Taylor and Bloomingsale’s.

Here is what QVC’s Web site has to say:

“Since 1926, Godiva Chocolate, originally named in honor of Lady Godiva, continues to be the leader in premium chocolates. Master Chocolatier Joseph Draps introduced Godiva chocolate to Belgium when he opened his first shop in Brussels, unveiling his unique formula of rich chocolate with unparalleled smoothness. Today, the same mouthwatering assortment comes to QVC, offering you and your loved ones gourmet chocolate of the highest quality, made from the purest ingredients. Treat your family, friends and holiday guests to delectable chocolates, beautifully presented in exquisite European-style gold ballotins and festive, seasonal packaging.”

The priciests Godiva item that QVC has, a $53 Chocolatier Indulgence Gift Tower, is already on Wait List.

QVC is also selling two Godiva Chocolate-scented candles for $30.

If you’re in the boondocks and not near any Godiva Chocolate stores, we guess getting the goodies from QVC makes sense.

But we’re not going to pay shipping and handling for something we can buy at the Short Hills Mall, if we could afford it.
