I remember returning to the UK back in January of 2009 to find that 1 pound = 1,01€. What can say? It was a wonderful Winter and I got some really nice things at really low prices, especially the ones from brands that are normally too expensive for me to buy. Things are a bit different at the moment. When you buy something you have to remember that you'll pay 25% more in euros, and everything in general in London is more expensive than usual. So yes, next week I'll be avoiding stores as Topshop, one of my favourites. I'm not avoiding the website though for some simple reasons:
1- They have free shipping worldwide until the end of the day;
2- In the most of the British e-commerces they are still using the old rate, so if you buy in Euros, unlike it happened in the past, you'll buy cheaper (worth to double check every time).
3. Topshop has a smashing collection!
Errrrm... Any favorite?
