Some things are great last-minute de­ci­sions: a late-night cock­tail with friends, for ex­am­ple. Oth­ers, like lock­ing in a ho­tel for Fash­ion Week, not so much.

Af­ter I fi­nally got my sched­ule in or­der, the op­tions for a place to stay in Paris of­fered by our of­fice travel agent were ei­ther so far out of the city I’d be spend­ing more time com­mut­ing than cou­tur­ing or hov­ered dan­ger­ously close to Birkin-bag-level costs. A Google search took me to Book­ing.com, where ho­tels that showed

up as un­avail­able on other sites popped up with op­tions—which I drilled down even fur­ther into those with the best prox­im­ity to the shows. (You can also use the site to book restau­rants or car rentals.) I snagged a room at a luxe ho­tel, prov­ing that pro­cras­ti­na­tion

some­times has its perks.
