Enjoy The Benefits Of Shopping Online

Who doesn’t love shopping? It is one way of releasing your stress and other negative energy that surrounds you. Both women and men spend a lot of hard earned cash on shopping sprees but with our modern technologies, you can now shop and purchase things you wanted to buy in just a simple click.

Shopping online offers far more choice and can also give you the opportunity to find a range of bargains, due to online sales, voucher codes and discount days. Now, with the upcoming launch of Sello, an ecommerce site that will host the best deals from small independent stores, you will be able to find fresh products, to connect with new merchants and find the hottest discount codes using the Sello marketplace. It is all so convenient but also gives you the chance to find new favourite brands at affordable prices.

So How Can You Shop Wisely Online?

First you need to determine what you want actually want to purchase. It is very easy to get caught up with online shopping as it feels you are not actually handing over money, so evaluate what your signature style is and don’t just buy clothes because they are on trend, no matter how fashionable. Don’t get caught up with buying sales buys, just because they are cheap, instead look for gaps in your wardrobe, classic buys that you will get lots of wear from, and pieces that you really need.

Shopping online can have a lot of benefits, you can shop from a wider selection  compared to shopping centres and boutiques. You can also shop at a time that suits you because the internet is available 24/7. Queues are generally a thing of the past – you don’t have to experience long file of shoppers falling in line towards the counter. You don’t have to carry shopping bags and find somewhere to park.You don’t have to trawl around shop after shop with aching feet trying to find something that really suits.

In short, it is fairly hassle-free. You can try things in the comfort of your own home, and lots of companies offer free returns if your item is unsuitable. A smart shopper uses the freedom to compare multiple online shops regarding best price offers, quality and selection of sizes and colours. And, very often, they are doing this online can shop online wearing pyjamas.  

Outfit post – April

Yes, I know it is almost the end of May, but outfit posts are always something that I forget, and then suddenly remember, usually at four in the morning. So here we are looking back on the busy month of April, which started with a mini holiday, and ended with a couple of Theatre press nights.

April was a month where the weather was changeable, hence the abundance of long sleeves, dresses which still needed to be teamed with tights, and the need for jackets and my trusty Primark khaki mac, which was first seen last month and has been a fabulous buy (already worn to death, so for £15 – a total no brainer.)

Again I am shopping my wardrobe on the whole, with a few new pieces added in. I think this proves that if you buy classic and versatile pieces, you will get far more wear out of them than if you buy strictly fashion pieces.

What have you been wearing this Spring? Have you invested in any new pieces, or have you been shopping your wardrobe and recycling favourite pieces from the past?

High Street Outlet review – Tallulah Jacket

September is here, and the days are already seeming to have a slight chill. So it is the perfect time to add a lightweight jacket to your wardrobe.  There’s still a chance of sunny days, but night’s are cooler, so a jacket that can take you from work, and will also be great for the weekend is a shrewd investment buy that you will get lots of work with. Once again, High Street Outlet has come up trumps with the ex Monsoon Tallulah jacket that comes in both blue and pink.

The Tallulah jacket has a relaxed boxy style, almost like a man’s silk blazer from the 1980s (sooo Miami Vice.) The style is slightly oversized, but not too baggy, and it has an open front design with no buttons. Two front patch pockets finish the design making this a very wearable piece that could easily take you from day to night wear.

The jacket is true to size, I am wearing a size 18 and this is comfortable on me. As much as I love pink, I opted for the blue, which is a gorgeous China blue shade. I have teamed this with jeans and a camisole, along with a pair of Nine West wedges that I had long forgotten about, but have fallen in love with again.

This is just a gorgeous jacket, great quality, and an absolute bargain for less than £15. In all honesty, for that sort of price, you can afford to go for both colours. I know this would work with black peg trousers, or worn as a cover up for a tea dress, or just teamed with skinnies, a classic white t-shirt and ballerina flats.
