Yes. You can call any major brand or store, from Kenneth Cole to Hermes, give them your info, and they will ship to you. If you live outside the state where the store is, often they won't charge you sales tax. You'll pay with a credit card; they may or may not charge you for shipping. It depends on their mood. If there is a boutique in your home state, they may ask you to call/contact them. BUT, in general, you should have little to no trouble at all doing this. It is a standard thing that has been going on since WAY before teh interwebz.
