As an online shopping addict who much prefers websites to brick-and-mortar stores at the mall, I would order regularly from US sites when I was still living in the US. Shipping and returns were often free, promo codes always made the deal sweeter, and I could avoid the crowds and try on the clothes in the privacy of my own home.
But after moving to France, all that changed. I had to majorly scale back my online shopping habits once I moved to France. Why? Buying from American websites and shipping to France was more of a hassle than anything else. Between shipping costs and duties and the long shipping delay, it just didn’t make sense financially to buy from American websites and have the order shipped to France. But my opinion has done a complete 180 after ordering from Victoria’s Secret and taking advantage of their international shipping. When something blows my mind, you can count on the fact that I’ll be sharing it with you!
