AA wish list

Saturday, 2 February 2013

Never could i normally ever justify the prices of American Apparel.
however..
my parents are off to New York in April. 

WITHOUT ME!!! *dying inside*
'an adults holiday, with no children' 
Hey! I'm 17! t-e-e-n-a-g-e-r  no child!
Take me!

And I'm going to save some money so they can do a little shop for me whilst they're out there..

When i was looking at the UK compared to the US prices i was shocked at how much us Brits are getting ripped off!
 Now i understand it will be cheaper in the states because it's a US brand.. but still!

Nail varnishs: US £3.48 each | UK £9.00 each!!
Velvet Cropped Tee: US £22 | UK £32!!
Denim Dungarees: US £55 | UK £76!!

ok, so i won't carry on, but you get the jist. AA is so flippin' expensive here and i honestly didn't realise how much of a rip off it is.. 

So I'm going to save up my wages, but what other brands/products are cheaper in the states does anyone know?
I know about makeup, i might ask for some Mac lipsticks and maybe Nars Sheer Glow foundation (once i get matched up)..

but is there anything else anyone could reccommend, please?
Brands/clothing/make-up/anything in general..
Thanks!

AA wish list

to make it worse my some of my friends are in New York at the moment on a Media Trip.
I didn't take Media, stupid fool i am.
I try not to think about the shopping they're probably doing now, 
but it's a sad sad time for me right now, wahh

  2. I noticed the same thing as well. It's even cheaper to buy AA goods off US ebay and ship to England. The price difference is crazy.

    1. I am. I place a certain amount of money away weekly, but this is also an oppotunity that i won't come across again so i will be saving for my parents to buy me a few things.
      Of course i won't be asking for everything, it's just a little wishlist.. Items will be out of stock/ my parent won't have enough room in suitcasses/I don't need 5 nailvarnishs!

      Don't worry i am saving money, and selling my clothes, and bag packing, and handing out my CV/applying for another job this weekend so i can make more money. And it's 11 weeks untill they go to NY so i can save slowly but surely for this wish list..
      I haven't lost site in the world challenge trip, don't worry :)

  5. The prices are insane, I went to New York last year and ended up buying so much just because i knew how cheap it was compared to the UK. Never checked out AA though, love the dungarees! xo
