INTERNATIONAL HM

When traveling, one usually loves to shop. Right? There is so much unexplored territory in fashion that one must discover on their worldly expeditions. Well, Lebanon isn't the greatest if you're digging for cheaper treasures. I bought this dress from the 3 story H&M located in the Hamra of Beirut. Being a dedicated fashionista and client of H&M, I follow them via their iPhone app. The app allows me to see new collections, prices, and anything else H&M wants to share with consumers, thus, leading me to this dress. I saw it on the model and had to have it, especially for the fair price of $18. I journeyed out of my small town in the mountains and headed towards the glowing city. Everything in H&M was overpriced by $10-$20 in Lebanon...surprise! This is not uncommon for most stores and brand names in the Middle East. Of course I continued to buy it knowing I was getting ripped off, but ... but it's just so pretty. How do you feel about the inconsistent pricing of large name stores and brands?

XOXO S.

  1. I live in Australia and EVERYTHING here is more expensive, so annoying. We do so much of our shopping online now so that we don't get ripped off.

  3. That dress is super cute and you look gorgeous in it!! About the pricing, it might be because they have an import tax so therefore they have to charge higher prices! I know that's the case for cars in Asia! PS. I'd love it if you could visit my blog and follow me if you like it!! :)
