Where to shop??
If you live in Australia, you probably will have had similar experience before that, we don’t have a lot of options when it comes to online shopping. I used to struggle for years trying to get that perfect pair of sneakers I saw on internet, drooling over it for days and realized there is no way I could get my hands on them ☹
However I think the world has finally listened! E commerce sites are starting to shift their attitude towards us Oceanic people a bit haha. I am a notoriously relentless shopper, when it comes to my favorite piece of item, I do put in a lot of effort to get it no matter where the heck it is located on the world map! Not too long ago I laid my eyes on these Vans Off the Wall V sneakers,
and then realized of course, Vans Australia or HYPE does not stock them - what a surprise. Upon another round of online searches I managed to get them from Vans Germany and had my friend over there to post them over to me, only to realize they are actually available on Urbanoutfitter and they provide free shipping to Australia! Oh well too late now.
So to help all those pathetic Aussie online shoppers who love casual wears like I do, here is a list of websites you can save on your browser, order values in AUD unless specified:
End clothing – based in UK, $25 flat rate under $300 purchase, Free for orders over $300, buyers pay for return postage;
ASOS Australia – based in UK, free shipping for orders over $40, free return postage for buyers;
Urbanoutfitter.com – based in US, $10 USD for orders under $50 USD, free shipping for orders over $50 USD; (my favorite by far)
Freepeople.com - $35USD Flat rate for orders under $150 USD, free shipping for orders over $150 USD
