Nothing to Wear

July 17, 2015

Women around the world have been looking at full closets and exclaiming “I have nothing to wear” since the beginning of time. During my move to Switzerland I packed 4 large bags and payed about $300 in luggage fees and I gave away more than 1/2 my closet and 1/4 stayed in storage so I have been fighting this impeding feeling of having nothing to wear for a month.

I was able to break up my closet woahs with a Sale Shopping Spree, it’s when I buy everything I want on sale. I won a gift card thanks to this awesome app FYUSE and blogger babe Diana Horsfall from Different Colors and Shades.  She’s chic to a fault and the gift card was for 100 Pounds at ASOS. With the strong pound currency I was able to get a lot for the 100 pounds!

Let me tell you, shipping to Switzerland is a PAIN IN THE A..

The total order came 101.50 Pounds about 150.39 Swiss Francs and 158.63 US Dollars.

I payed additional for shipping, understandable. What I didn’t expect is having to pay an addition 75 Swiss Frans about 79.14 US Dollars which is crazy! I was astonished I had to pay so much in taxes for ordering from the UK.

I am an adamant online shopper, I find great deals and always enjoy it but Switzerland is very expensive so I do think I still saved on the sale items even after taxes but it is a huge deterrent. What do you ladies do?


So I finally got my package today after paying duties transferring the package from one postal service to the other.
I threw this look together straight from the box and voila, dressed for class… all black again because I am a creature of habit and had a million things to do today.

    Yey back again! Yes sometimes the amount of shipping and taxes amount more than the product itself 🙁 Fortunately, all of the items that you put on looks so good on you so all is well!

    The blonde really looks good on you and this combination of “cannot be bothered to color my roots” gives the vibe of somewhat ombre. I also love how you worked on complimenting a fierce hair color with an equally fierce with subtle hint of femininity outfit.

    Hope you’re having a great day, take care! 🙂

    So sorry to hear about shipping to Switzerland! I feel the same way about custom taxes that can be quite unbearable at times. Anyhow, I love this chic ensemble especially the sheer top, street chic at its finest! 🙂 xo~ Lena

    Ahh, you ust’ve went ballistic when you won that gift card, but such a shame about the shipping. The things we do for clothes, eh? Anyway, you look wonderful in this outfit! All black can do no wrong!

    You look so cute in all black! So lucky that you won that giftcard (Asos is an amazing store), but shipping is absurd! The only downsides to living in certain places in Europe seems to be that stores often charge extra for shipping.

  18. The taxes is crazy! This is the reason why I am more reserved with online shopping now, the other day I got hit with CAD48 for a product that worth US120. Dang tax is killing me. LOL!

    I really love your style! I totally am the same way feeling that I never have anything to wear! I usually only order online if I really like it and I can’t get it locally. Paying extra for shipping is never fun and I will do what I can to avoid it, but at the end of the day, if I want it I will usually just do it anyways and try not to think about it too much!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!

    I so understand you in terms of online shopping! I live in Belarus, and we also have to pay hight taxes, duties and shipping fee. That look is great though, for some reason black looks so chic in summer!

    The key to an All Black outfit is the accessories so you nailed it here! Love that hat and sunnies. Wow what we women have to go through to get our sartorial buds tended to, sounds like a bit of an ordeal with the shipping but you got what you wanted in the end, so YaY! for you!

  52. I feel your pain!! When I lived in Denmark I ordered a pair of leather pants online from ShopBop, and the extra duties and fees were insane!! I’m an avid online shopper as well and it was pure torture. I stuck to shopping at H&M and Zara. I think may ship internationally for little fees. The prices are super cheap too!

    Also, love the all black!
