I Didn't Make it Up

In this morning's Chicago Tribune.  Obviously, they're only in it for the resale; a maven would have gone for the Azuree or Private Collection.


Two thieves stole more than $2,500 in high-end perfumes from a Deerfield cosmetics store, then sped off in a silver Porsche SUV, police said. 

The two entered Ulta Cosmetics, 130 S. Waukegan Rd., on Jan. 14, but aroused suspicion and were confronted by a store manager. One woman in her 20s opened her empty bag and then abruptly left, while the other bought a comb and soon followed.

Employees found dozens of bar code labels and scissors used to remove them under a shelf, then went outside and saw the women drive off together.

The stolen items included bottles of Coco Mademoiselle, j'adore, Euphoria and Miss Dior Cherie, according to police.

Fortunately, Daily, there are no physical descriptions...

Oh wouldn't it be wonderful to just be given free reign to take anything you wanted from a fabulous perfume department (*fantasizes about being told she can take anything she wants from the Liberty or Harrods perfume department... drifts away on a happy cloud...*)

(*gets a running start and leaps onto cloud with her...*)

That cloud is going to get mighty crowded....:-)

There's a hint of Dior bias there - anything I should know about the Chicago resale crowd? Are the bars full of women in Dior haute couture muttering "I've got more in the car, you know.." to equally soignee customers?
