If loving handbags were a crime, I plead GILTy.
Have you guys heard of the online shopping boutique, GILT? If not, then you’re in for a real treat.
I went onto their site to check them out, and spent hours day dreaming and lusting over the handbags!
What I really loved about this site is that they ship to South Africa, and, when you log on, you put in your country code and it automatically works out the price, which includes duties and VAT.
Bonus! So much better than shopping within your budget, finding the perfect bag and then being whacked with a nasty customs charge when you check out – or worse yet after your parcel arrives.
“um mam, your handbag that you paid R2000 has arrived in South Africa, please make a payment on another nearly R2000 to release your bag from customs”
No thank you!
I much prefer to know what I’m up against, especially since I’ve already had my little rude awakening when I shopped at ASOS.
So lets get back to the handbags shall we?
I’d totally sell my soul for these beauts!
