Okay, I’ll admit it. I am head over heels in love with online shopping. I may even go so far as to say that I am slightly addicted to it. I adore the convenience, the fact that it’s open all hours and there is such a vast array of choice. Everything is readily available at the touch of a button, gifts, electronics, clothing. It’s all there in Internet glory, gasping to be bought. I think it’s amazing that I can have an idea about something, track it down and have it on its’ way within a few minutes. Oh what a time to be alive! No car park/finding the item in your size malarkey, it’s all there right at your fingertips. Another huge bonus is that you can see if they have your size as opposed to rummaging through rails before chasing down a shop assistant.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love an actual trip to the shops and sometimes you really just have to see the item in the flesh before committing to it. Not to mention it is sometimes nice to have a wander too. We particularly like doing this in the cold, grey months as shopping centres provide a haven from winter.
I now present to you my favourite online shops!
1. Oliver Bonas
They also have actual shops, but I adore perusing their online catalog. They have gorgeous items of home wear and also lovely clothing too.
2. Kate Spade
I’ve been a fan of Kate Spade for a couple of years now. I love the playful and fun style and am yet to find another designer who ticks the same boxes for me as Kate Spade does. I adore everything from the homewear to the handbags and drag my poor hubby into every single Kate Spade shop we pass by.
I love the classic style of this company. Most of their products are simple, yet absolutely gorgeous. Think monochrome strappy tops and effortless dresses. I love the quality and the versatility of their items although they can be a bit on the pricey side.
Let’s be honest here, who doesn’t love themselves a bit of Amazon?! You can find pretty much everything on here from cookware to gadgets as well as a vast array of books – hurrah!
I love this place. Like literally love it. I like the affordability, the statement pieces and how you can have fun and push boundaries with their fashion.
The best thing about Asos is the amount of choice. So many brands, so many items. I think it is literally impossible not to find anything to fall in love with on this site. Impossible.
6. Jack Wills
I’m a bit of a Jack Wills junkie. Again it’s the quality and staple pieces that draw me in. I love the different prints they have for dresses and their preppy, feminine style.
7. Cath Kidston
Great for cute homewear pieces and little gifts for friends, Cath Kidston has been a favourite of mine for years. Where else can you get such wonderful prints?!
So there you have it, some of my favourite places to splash the cash.
I’m off to check out the summer sales!
