Net-A-Porter Free Shipping Worldwide

I'm sure most of my Aussie girlfriends share my pain.

Having net-a-porter offering free shipping at the moment is like a slap in the face.

The excitement of finally getting that promotional code we've been holding out for just gets eroded away due to the stupid exchange rate.

Aussie dollar came crashing down over the past week, hitting a five-year low. 6 months ago, Australian dollar was trading at a glorious US$ 98 cents; as the market closed on Friday, it is now trading at US$ 65 cents.

Travel plans and holidays are being put on hold (there goes my much anticipated trip to US of A), and shopping bans are in order to curb expenditure.

The gloomy cloud of a looming worldwide recession is shrouding our hopeless addiction to fashion and beauty.

I guess it's a good thing that the fuchsia ostrich leather Mulberry Bayswater bag is sold out then.

I should just turn off my laptop and go to sleep, hoping that Aussie dollar comes back stronger when the market re-opens on Monday.

Later, alligators.
