Bargain Hunter: Forever 21
In case you haven't heard, the Aussie dollar is doing pretty well for itself. As I write this one Australian dollar will get you 96 American cents, so close! As the dollar soars many people's thoughts go to online shopping and the bargains that can be had (well mine certainly did!). So now let me share with you the story of my great bargain adventure.One humble day as I logged on to twitter I noted a tweet by @SalesGuide regarding the dollar and shopping on Forever21, immediately I went on to Forever21's site. Although I had heard of Forever21 I never really knew much about it as we don't have it here but as I browsed the site I was shocked. Dresses for $13, tops for $5, earring and headbands for $1.50! And its not like they were cheap but fugly, no they were super cute and on trend. But then my heart broke as I saw the shipping was like $35 to Australia. Devastated I closed the browser although I couldn't get the bargains out of my mind. Luckily I had shared my heart ache via tweet with SalesGuide, and they responded by suggesting I bulk order with friends and split the shipping costs. Further advice was given by a school friend of mine via Facebook (gotta love social networking sites) about ordering through hopshopgo.com, using this the shipping was even less. I found a friend with a shared love of fashion (same friend who was with me on my travels in Sri Lanka) and together we shopped up a storm. Our order has not yet arrived but I'm sure once it does we will live happily (and fashionably) ever after. The End.
