Boohoo.com, the UK online retailer akin to Nasty Gal and ASOS in business model and style sense, launched a stateside site last Fall. The expansive clothing and accessories inventory is geared toward 18 to 25 years olds, but the price point is closer to Forever21 with dresses starting at $16. Since the site could be a great way to fill out holes in your spring wardrobe inexpensively, find everything you'll want to know while shopping Boohoo.com after the jump.
1. Shipping costs: Free standard shipping (seven to fourteen days) for orders above $25. If your order is below $25 you might as well order express delivery (i.e. one to two business days) because shipping for orders under $25 and express is $9.99.
2. Returns Within 14 days of the date shown on the dispatch note. Not free; The customer pays whatever the cost is to ship it to the amazingly titled "Boohoo Returns Centre" at New York's JFK international airport. So at least that's cheaper than shipping it internationally.
3. Customs: Orders over $200 will be subject to customs charges.
4. Exchanges: Nope.
5. Fun extras: The Boohoo Boutique includes limited-edition designs from dresses to jackets to tees specific to the retailer. The trend-focused clothes start at $36 and go up to $90.
