I am in a wedding in May. When the bride sent us instructions on what to buy, I had a wee bit of anxiety. I don’t have much luck shopping in Europe when I go with no specifications. Let alone when I need to find something very specific (in this case, a grey knee-length dress.)
I began scouring many of my go-to US stores online prepared to pay a fortune in shipping, if I found something I really liked. When I came to JCrew.com, it prompted me to choose if I wanted to be redirected to the U.S. site or if I preferred to proceed directly to the international one. I didn’t even know their was an international site!
Turns out, their international site offers a flat rate of 10 CHF for shipping with free returns and no additional taxes, duties, or other fees! PLUS, they offered a 20% off promo code! So, of course, I ordered SIX dresses – all different sizes and styles, so I could find one I really liked and send the rest back.
The good news? I found a winner! You’ll have to wait until May for the reveal.
The returns are in transit, so this is a little premature to be touting a success before I’ve been refunded for the others. But, I’m officially an even bigger J. Crew fan now than I was previously.
And thanks to a fun little accessory shop in the Lisbon airport last month, I have my jewelry ready to go, too. Phew!
I cannot wait to celebrate with my sweet friends!
