Designer Sunglasses For Less!



Arriving in Paris, my two(!) pair of sunglasses were waiting for me at my boyfriend's. They were even greater looking than presumed, so now I'm all set for the Summer;)

And the best of all: These two cost me less than the price of one pair in Norway. Impossible you say?
Here's the deal:
Sunglassesfashion.com (also known as Atelier Ottico) is an Italian web shop that offers sunglasses from more than 70 brands. Gucci, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Dior, Tom Ford - you name it! The selection is wide, almost too wide if you intend to pick out one pair (that's way I ended up with two!)
Anyway, the prices are a lot lower than in stores, shipping is free and tax is subtracted for non-EU costumers. This makes it attractive even for Norwegian customers after duties are paid.

Example:
Tom Ford, "Fonda": Price at Sunglasses fashion: 153€ (exl. VAT), about 1260 NOK. Including import duties and charges for Norway: about 1760 NOK
Price in Norway: About 3300 NOK (402€)

See?
The only thing I don't like about this site, is that it's really slow. It takes quite long to launch the pages, so you need to be patient while clicking.
Well, I guess as long as there's money to save, it's worth spending some time on it?!

Ja, det bør du. De har mye knærsje solbriller, og servicen er også upåklagelig. Kjappe til å besvare hendvendelser:)
