Briony Buys UK - I filled out the order form (provided on the site) asking for a quote on 2 blazers from Mango. She didn't respond in 3 days so I sent an email. She finally responded with a quote. I decided to only get one blazer and order a pair of jeans from Zara. She charges 10 GBP for each custom order but decided to only charge me once because she was also ordering from Zara. I was stalking Zara's clearance sale like mad and saw that a sold-out pair of jeans that I wanted was stocked again (in a size up). I asked Briony to add that to my order and she charged 10 GBP for the custom order again. What I really liked about Briony was her communication. It was really good. She even sent the invoices from Zara and Mango. What I didn't like was the shipping charges. I wasn't expecting to get hit with a shipping charge after paying 20 GBP and Paypal's charges. But I was okay about it and figured it couldn't be much after I already paid so much. But no, it was. 30 GBP. Translated that's 48 USD. I've bought plenty of things from the UK and the most I was ever charged was $45 from Matches Fashion for shoes that came in 2 shoe boxes (Matches box and the original shoe box). Plus she wanted another 5 GBP for herself for shipping and I had to Paypal their dues again. So I wasn't happy about that at all. I ended up paying $100 dollars over the original cost of the items. Not reasonable at all. But thank God the items were everything I wanted and more. Love all three of them dearly and have worn the 2 pairs of jeans several times already. But as far as Briony's service, I wouldn't highly recommend it.
UK Brands Worldwide - Now their communication is not as great as Briony, but I like them a lot. I filled out their order form with a blazer and jeans from Zara. I didn't have to email them in order for them to respond. They gave me only one quote, in contrast to Briony raising 2 invoices. It was 15 GBP for their shopping service, but I didn't have to pay Paypal fees twice because there was only one invoice, and the shipping was 20 GBP compared to 30 GBP. When it was all said and done I think I paid $70 over the original cost. Still not great but a bit more reasonable. I would recommend them more so than Briony, but let's just say that I'm looking forward to Zara US shopping site going live in a few weeks. In the meantime, I just ordered from UK Brands Worldwide again for some H&M items.<p>That's my review of shopping services from the UK. Now can we get some from some other countries, please?
