Hi ladies! I'm a newbie and I'm in love and I mean LOVE with a gorgeous, chocolate brown saddle bag. It's from the flowers collection I believe (Fall 05). The white one has just come out for Spring. Anyhoo... I live in Canada and am wondering how much this bag is in the States.

If anyone could let me know I would be super thankful!!!

:smile:

I just want to know if it's worth waiting and getting it in the States vs. biting the bullet and buying here.

It's about $400 bucks cheaper in Paris.

Here's a pic:

I love American Express. I use their concierge service to find the Leather Star Saddle Bag when I can't get it in the US. They found it for me and it's price directly from the Mothership - Dior main store in Paris. They can ship it to you with a min. shipping fee. It's really cool. The only thing I don't like ordering this way is b/c I just love to touch and feel the item before making any purchase.:lol:

The French Dior website won't ship outside of France.

Plus I'll get dinged on taxes when it gets to the border :sad:


Are you sure they don't ship outside of France? They offered me that choice and the price they quoted me was cheaper than US. I am not 100% sure if I was taxed or not. I didn't care b/c it was cheaper than US. If you do get taxed, I think you only get charged one country tax not two compared to buying it here. Call the Main Store on Ave Montaigne 01 47 23 52 39. They have really great service there.

Thanks so much!! How much was shipping?

I live in Canada and I wonder if I'll get PST, GST and a luxury tax. Any Canadian girls out there who have some experience ordering over the border?

Thanks!

foxy_chao: did you have to pay tax when it arrived in the US?
