Forever $22

I'm not shopping at Monsoon until they quit trying to rip me off for living in Ireland. That said, I do adore their Keja Dress but at €144 (£85) they can keep it. I've ordered the Forever 21 Floral & Stripes V-Neck Dress $22.80, which is not only cheaper, but has a nicer neckline. Take that UK-based rip-off merchants.

Ive just been swooning over that dress on the F21 site! Did you order loads of stuff to make the postage worthwhile?

I have never heard of F21 sounds like I'm missing something. I'm going to Google it now. I've ordered the Monsoon Fusion Serenity dress which costs £48.

It's arrived today whilst I was out and my neighbours taken it in and now she's out. I might have to break in to get it.

Update...I have obtained the dress from my neighbour.

It makes me look like a five year old, even with 3 inch platforms on my feet. I will be sending it back. At 30 years old this is not the look I was going for despite its nautical charm.

I am now going to peruse Forever 21

ah hell Mary - thought the dress was cute but no way could I pull something like that off!

Anne-Marie - An order worth $200 costs $59.95 shipping. Considering what you can get at F21 for $200 it's well worth it!

Mary T- Bummer, hate when that happens... but you're gonna love Forever 21. As a general rule of thumb, a 'Medium' is a good size in everything. Happy shopping!

Hope the shipping costs include tax. An Post have sometimes taken my orders from the states ransome until I pay tax.


word verification: fluckle!

I'm hoping I'll get away with it, but if worst comes to worst, what is it about €30 on $200? It's still not bad for the volume of stuff you can buy for that price...

ah those b****rds in the customs office - They take the postage cost into consideration also when calculating the charge afaik.

Customs = 3% of cost (i think)
Vat = 21.5% of cost
and then theres a €5 admin fee.

If F21 use fedex to deliver you will more than likely be caught unfortunately.

I would just be so nervous about spending that amount and guessing the size - I am a size 12/14 and I have a dress I got in F21 lst yr that is a size large so I dont know if thats any help

They are both gorgeous but I prefer the one you have ordered TSP.

You're making me all jealous with your talk of new clothes...I may have to go purchase something for the weekend :P - any excuse!

Last week you mentioned ASOS and an hour later I had ordered a dress, two shirts and a bag. You devil woman you!
