The record high of the Aussie dollar is making shopping in online US stores an absolute dream. I'm determined to get some classic pieces at good prices.
I'm also still keen to only buy vintage, but sometimes it is really difficult to find what I want/need. For example, black flat knee high boots. There are not many in eBay Australia, but probably a lot from the US. The cost of the real leather boots from China on eBay are so exciting though, so sometimes I think new has to be the way due to economical considerations.
