You girls probably have noticed that I love the fit and flare shape because it's always flattering and balances out your proportion. This dress is also available in white. 

But today, I really want to share with you girls details about how to take advantage of the weak GBP (the British Pound). Have you girls ever purchased anything from a UK website? Right now is the best time to pull the trigger because the United States dollar has gotten so strong versus the GBP (put another way the British Pound has gotten very weak versus the United States dollar). 

Let me use the Givenchy mini Antigona as an example. If you get it here the original price is $1750. After tax it comes out to around $1905 (using a tax rate just shy of 9%). If you get it from this very popular UK retailer's website, MAKE SURE you change the currency to GBP and the shipping country to USA on the upper left corner (this will ensure that you get the lowest price). On the site the mini Antigona sells for 883 GBP, plus duty of 97 GBP, then after using USAFREE to get free shipping, your total price then comes out to 980 GBP.  Based on the current exchange rate of 1.32 (end of day June 27th), your new final price for the mini Antigona is only $1294!! You cannot get this low of a price in the U.S. That's over 30% off!! 

Besides regular priced items, Matches Fashion is having a summer sale where you can get a ton of great deals. For example, this cute Stella McCartney bag is only 307 GBP and after duty, it's 341 GBP, which makes it only $450. 

If you girls have anything on your wishlist, today is the time to take advantage of the exchange rate.  Because who knows what's gonna happen tomorrow or next week and how long these prices will last? Once websites run out of stock, they may increase the price of the bag when it's back in stock or not offer free shipping to the U.S. because the demand is so high.

BTW, I just bought the mini Antigona cause it's such a classic piece and goes well with everything. Can't wait to show you girls:P

I hope you girls found this informative as it's really a can't miss sale opportunity. Free free to email me if you have any questions:) XX
