WIN your way to a pair of Your Favourite Sunglasses!

Shopping for shades can be daunting. Shapes, colours, lenses…oh and what about which brand? 

I think I have uncovered one of the best sites for sunglasses shopping in Australia – Your Favourite Sunglasses.

This up-and-coming Aussie retailer have realised that the disparity of prices on the net for sunnies can be quite large, and sadly, what costs $400 in Oz can be found online in some random country for $150.

I hate it when that happens!

YFS take current styles and high-end brands and sell them in Australia for crazy discounts. But not dodgy discounts. Their prices are on par with what our friends in the Northern Hemisphere would pay on a daily basis. The best part about this site is that all items are dispatched from Sydney (You wait just ONE DAY for dispatch and can enjoy FREE express delivery!) and they have a 30 day returns policy – so you can make sure the shades are right for you and buy with confidence.

They often hold sale events that give customers discounts up to a whopping 75%, and navigating around the site is super-easy. You can browse by shape, brand or style.

These are my picks from the current range, click the caption to buy!

The devil wears Prada…(and probably shops at reebonz.com)

One of my favourite shopping sites for discounted, brand new high end bags and shoes is reebonz.com.

Reebonz and I have a brilliant love affair. It delivers the most delicious designer bags and shoes to my email every day, and I never fail to click through.

I’ve bought a LOT from Reebonz. Their prices are excellent and the constant rotation of brands and products means you are always on trend. The site hosts invitation-only private sale events, each open for just a few days at a time, so you have to act quickly!

NAVIGATION AND RANGE

The site stocks so many designers including Prada, Gucci, Chloe, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fendi, Chloe, YSL… and the list goes on. They have recently launched a vintage section with Chanel and Hermes goods that is worth a look, too!

Everything is in brand new condition unless otherwise stated and the products and just so lushhhh.

The daily EDM email delivered to your inbox can be so dangerous(ly awesome!) and gives you a wrap up of all their products, and an app for Android and iPhone makes browsing from your smart phone super easy!

SALES

Reebonz is a discount site so the bags are always on sale. Prices are so affordable because most of this merchandize is from a past season (but I am still seeing the Kate Spade messenger bag I bought last week in David Jones).

Despite the already discounted prices, they often hold promotions and incentives for their customers that make your transaction a no-brainer. These promos are pretty good, and include bonus credits to your account and extra percentages off items.

If you’re a tactile shopper, they hold an offline sale every so often in Sydney and Melbourne. Last time I was at one of those I bagged myself a Prada handbag! The crowds are big, but the sale is well laid out and usually held at the Sheraton on the Park hotel in Sydney, and the Intercontinental in Melbourne.

THE STORE

So, you can imagine my sheer delight when they announced they’d be opening a Sydney flagship store at 570 George St, Sydney on April 18, 2013!!!

I was so excited. I looked forward to it for days, weeks even. My shopping partner in crime, Karen and myself even stalked the site a week before opening.

A sneak peek of the store…one week to go!

They offered a promo for the opening day of sale, a lucky door dip that gave 50 lucky winners the chance to purchase a bag from a selected range at 99% off!

WHATTA DEAL…if you can get it.

But sadly, I have to say I was disappointed. And not because I missed out on a bag for $14.90…

The experience just wasn’t the same you’d expect from buying designer items. I mean, I’m not saying that I expected the sale to be calm and the service to be at the standard found in a concession store, but even the one-off offline sales are more upmarket.

Bags were strewn everywhere, little children were pushing me and running around, and I was just really turned off by the whole thing. There was nothing special about making a purchase because the store was heaving and claustrophobic. I mean, the store will be there tomorrow…and the day after… so just chill out peeps!

It was a reminder why I love to shop online…no mess and no fuss.

You’d think all the bags were 99% off with this mobscene

SHIPPING AND RETURNS

I have always had a 100% hit rate with Reebonz and have never needed to use their returns facility, but it is seems to be quite simple.

For incorrect or defective items shipped, you have 14 days to return the item in its original purchase condition, including the original product packaging, containers, documentation, warranty cards, manuals etc. The site doesn’t exactly go into the details for change of mind, so it remains to be seen if they offer that.

Shipping is free, fedEx tracked and generally FANTASTIC! It arrives within the week in a beautiful box, dressed with a gold ribbon that makes you feel very special and expensive. The shopping experience is seamless and I strongly recommend this site when you’re next in the market for a bag or a pair of shoes.
