Why are imported clothes, shoes, and makeup in Israel so f$#@$$@ expensive?! Take note.
When I see these urban chic studded sandals at the Nine West in Dizengoff Center, I totally wanted a pair! Then, I saw the price! A whopping 799nis! That’s about $200!
They just went on sale in America and on the Nine West store online for a cool $99!
American Apparel in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv is one of the highlights if you want American-style clothes. And why not? After all, the founder of American Apparel is half-Israeli.
But of course, with custom import clothing comes custom import products. I just bought this $30 American Apparel Melange Jersey pocket skirt from the store in center TA. It cost me 170nis ($42)
And finally, make up! By far the most expensive import from America for women…at least in my opinion. I opted to buy the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse from the local SuperPharm because I desperately needed foundation and wasn’t getting any from the US anytime soon.
I paid almost 200nis ($50) for this stuff! At home, it’s a measley $10 at the local drugstore…
If they had Sephora here, I wonder how much that would cost!!
