OMG! I’m sooo impressed with Forever 21. (America’s version of Mr. P.) It’s now become this full on addiction and Karisa and I spend all our time trawling the site for awesomeness, creating huge wish lists, ordering up a storm…
If you’re a regular reader, you’ll remember that we ordered a bunch of stuff from the online site a little while ago and held thumbs, hoping the quality would be decent and that we wouldn’t get screwed on taxes… as it turns out, the clothes are AWESOME, super cheap (even when you convert from dollars to rands) and… (gasp!) WE DIDN’T GET TAXED! Seriously. We only paid for what we bought plus the delivery fee – nothing else. It took A WEEK to arrive and was DHLed directly to my door.
Here’s my part of the haul:
Oooh, now get a close up on my soet li’l ringetjie:
Needless to say, we’re now completely hooked and have just placed order number two. If you’re looking for gorgeous klere and aren’t afraid of online shopping, you’ve got to give it a bash. Still, there are a few things to bear in mind… for one, we might’ve gotten lucky. There’s no telling if the tax man let that one slide and is going to klap us on the next one, so it makes sense to mentally prepare for a potential tax of up to 50%. Thus, before you buy, ask yourself if you’re still prepared to buy it for double the price. (However, even at double, most things are still cheaper than in SA). We’re also sending our next haul to a different address (K’s instead of mine) just in case there’s any truth to that whole ‘they tend to let parcel number one slide but take note of it and then tax you on the second’ rumour.
Anyway, I’m now going to be blowing my hard-earned cash on clothes and accessories from Forever21. Would you be keen to give it a go?
