Are you tired of paying that “taxes d’importation” every time you order something online? Yes, me too!
I could spend 300 EUR on stuff… but that 30 CHF I have to pay when I receive it simply ANNOYS ME! So in order to avoid hitting our nerves this holiday season, I have put together 10 swiss based website to buy presents or simply things from and avoid paying those annoying taxes!!
My lovely Anna is based in Lausanne and has the most femenine collection of all! Talk about fitted dresses, lace details and flowing skirts! I wear a lot of her collection since it is original and not like all the things we see around.
My latest splurge? These awesome knitted pants I can’t seem to take off! Website:www.byadori.com

2.- Max Chocolatier
I mentioned Max last year on a Christmas article (here) and now I put it again since a Swiss Christmas is not complete without his chocolates! The Java one is part of my DNA now and I try to order 50 CHF each time to avoid paying the shipping :). Good excuse to order tons of chocolate!! Website: MaxChocolatier.com
You have seen me talk about Exuma bags before, these clutches cannot seem to go unseen. Simply beautiful, sophisticated, classic with a tropical touch. So in love with their colors and fabrics (I need to order the black and white one… NOTE to self..) Website:Exuma.com
