I'm not afraid of shopping online locally, since I am not using credit card or paypal (dahil wala naman ako nun), much safer kasi for me kung ang payment ay through bank deposits. And of course I always make sure that the seller is trusted. But I haven't tried shopping at U.S online stores, cause I know, I don't have paypal or mastercards, and I am just annoyed on how much the shipping fee they would cost me for just a pair of shoes. I remember last August, when I heard that Tilly's.com wass having it's clearance sale and I saw items there that cost $0.99 for accessories and $4.00 for a pair of flats, such a steal right? So I added items on my cart, and upon proceeding to checkout, I was kinda, Oh My Men! You know how much the shipping fee from U.S to Philippines, double the total amount of the items on my cart. I was really heartbroken by the S.F :(, but I'm glad that House of Flair came to the rescue. Or should I call it a Hero? lol
Well, if you haven't heard anything about HOF here's some info about the store:

Ms.Suyen (owner of HOF) informed me that HOF can help me with my problem. And guess what, I only have to pay additional fees but not as much as what the site costs me. And I was literally shocked that the fees does not burn holes in my pocket.! So, last Thursday my package arrived! Wow! After almost 1 1/2 months of waiting finally, here comes my new babies!

So, did the HOF give me a fair amount for my total purchase?
