What I love about shopping overseas is that you can buy clothing or Accessories that you probably wont see over here, and you can buy clothing at a reasonable price that looks as though it is expensive. The quality, detail, prints and designs from the UK stores usually surpass that of the NZ high street.
I checked out three of my favourite UK stores on-line to see what they are offering. Even though they are featuring Summer clothing, you can still pick up knitwear, coats, and long sleeve tops from all of these sites. I looked at, Warehouse, Top Shop and Oasis, and picked some of my favourite pieces from each store.
Warehouse is known for great work-wear but also produces funky clothing with attention to detail styling. They offer free delivery on orders over $150.00.
Warehouse Balloon Sleeve Rib Jumper $106.00, Ditsy Floral Top $82.00, Stripe Front Tie Dress $106.00, Scatter Floral Shirt Dress $59.00, Button Shoulder Top $82.00.
Auckland has TopShop stores but for the rest of the country check out their on-line UK site. (They don't have a NZ one.) TopShop is best known for designer styles at high street prices. They charge £9.00 for delivery or free if you spend £100.00.
TopShop Camo Floral Shirt Dress £39.00, Eyelet Detailed Oversize Seatshirt £35.00, Jersey Pleat Midi Skirt £32.00, Military Trench Coat £59.00. (The current exchange rate is £1.00 = $1.83 NZ.)
Oasis has started collaborations with celebrities and they recently collaborated with the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A), in London, and produced a stunning collection of prints and dresses. Oasis is well known for its dresses and its feminine and fun styling. They offer $10.00 delivery or free if you spend $150.00.
Oasis Butterfly Cold Shoulder Dress $94.00, Plisse T Shirt Dress $105.75, V&A Embroidered Mesh Dress $352.50, and Isla Lace Dress $113.00.
