Last year, I realise that LL Bean have opened their global site which provide direct shipping to customers outside US.
I was so happy to know that as they have become my favourite brand. They send me catalogue every season ❤ Shipping is free if you spend S$150 and above.
The only issue is that they do not allow monogram on their items . So I can’t get the boat totes monogrammed! But I would shop from their US sites if I ever need a LL Bean tote again. LL Bean always have 25% off. So I always wait for it first before getting anything.
I finally decided to pull the plug when 3 of my wishlist are on sales. Note: Unlike other online retailer, the 25% code is STILL applicable to sales items!
Here’s what I have gotten:
1) French Sailors Shirt Three-Quarter-Sleeve Boatneck – this is in my wishlist like forever! I have been looking for something like this like forever. The real thing looks abit different from what I have thought. I thought its more T-shirty but its more like a knit top. The only thing is the strong smell of the clothes. After a couple of days, the smell is still there. I guess it would be fine after washing… This top is thicker than usual because it is not T-shirty so I can wear it to work too!
2) Signature Poplin Skirt Sailcloth Print – I jumped into getting this when I saw it was on sale. And only one size is left. MY SIZE! I really love the print of the skirt as it is very unique. It is still very expensive after the 25% but the quality is really good! I didn’t any really good quality skirt as I am not a skirt person. But this skirt would be perfect as it is suitable for all occasions.
3) French Sailors Hoodie Long-Sleeve – Again, somehow it is different from what I have thought lol and again, the strong smell argh! but I wanted to take this with me to a cruise next month. It is sooo perfect!!
4) West End Fitted Tee Three-Quarter-Sleeve Scoopneck Dot – I bought this because I am revamping my wardrobe to have more basic clothes that suits work too. (I am getting rid of Tshirts) 3/4 sleeve seems more appropriate for work as well.
Okay, so after placing order, I didn’t get any email confirmation which was very strange. However, the next day, I received an confirmation from BorderFree. So BorderFree is recommended by many US sites for shipping order outside US. But I have never use them as I have my own agent if I ever need to ship something from US.
My order was shipped very quickly – the next working day. They uses Aramex for delivery. It takes about a week (minus weekend) to receive it. Overall, I am happy with everything. However, since their clothes aren’t that cheap, I wouldn’t be shopping that often.
