If you live in the US and the idea of ordering a bag from a site outside the country makes you a bit nervous, I can’t blame you. Bags are already expensive, and figuring out how a retailer deals with duties, international shipping and foreign purchase fees when you’re not well-versed in the rules can be a little bit daunting; no one wants to accidentally spend hundreds of dollars more than they expected if it’s not necessary.


Even if you live far away from mytheresa.com’s hometown of Munich, Germany, savvy online shoppers know that the site has long been a go-to online destination for the type of fashion that can make nearly anyone feel like a European street style star.

International Edit Forzieri

I first came across accessories-only Italian shopping site Forzieri back in my nascent days of handbag obsession, and lately, I’ve rediscovered the great mix of products that it offers.
