Internet Shopping Anyone? bY Yellow Tulip

Shopping for all ages

Have you bought anything on-line, from an overseas web-site recently? I have been lured into the whole concept of finding a great bargain (given our high NZ dollar) and have been trolling various web-sites looking for something, namely from the States or UKthat I desperately need, or may have wanted, but thought could not afford. As much as I have tried to spend my hard-earned money, there just hasn’t been an overwhelming urge to part with the cash (or should I say credit card) on anything so far.

Internet Style at a reasonable price

Perhaps I’m not looking at the right web-sites or just not in the mood for Internet shopping? There is something to be said for actually shopping in a store and trying things on – looking at what else may catch your eye. You can feel the fabric, or just the general quality/try on other sizes and style options.
For guys I’m told, many have well and truly embraced the Internet shopping craze (anything to avoid an actual trip to a shopping centre) has to be good. I’ve looked everywhere and am still looking for the ultimate web-site shopping experience!! Saying that, I have just made my first purchase from net-a-porter.com and am excited about its pending arrival. It should be on my door-step anytime next week. Fingers crossed it lives up to expectations.
I should advise that I have bought numerous items from the web, but am not as experienced as I would like to be. Let me know if you have any recommendations for where the good fashion sites are, and I’ll spread the word. Don’t forget to check the Foreign Exchange Converter before completing your purchase, so you know what the final costs will be.Alternative Fashion Internet Favourite

When it comes to our own Trade Me, my experience as a buyer hasn’t been the best. Perhaps I have too much faith in fellow Kiwis, and don’t ask the right questions – but in the majority of cases, what I have bought, just hasn’t lived up to expectations.

Recommended web-sites to check out include: www.tobi.com.uk (lots of affordable designers and a good selection for both guys and girls) www.theoutnet.com (quality designer buys and is connected to netaporter.com but without the expensive price tag) www.karmaloop.com (street wear/casual wear/sports and much more for both guys and gals) www.savemart.co.nz (recycled and much-loved clothes/toys and family fashion at affordable prices) It is probably appropriate about now, to mention the out-cry from fans about the All Blacks new Jersey from Adidas, that appears to be cheaper to buy overseas on-line, rather than here in NZ!!

Fashion & Accessories to compliment your Style

Always shop around has some truth in it – before you buy.

Fashion Tip When you start cleaning out your wardrobe over the next couple of months, rather than look to sell unwanted garments/shoes and accessories on Trade Me – perhaps consider giving them to Dress for Success, a non-profit organisation that helps people looking to return back to the workforce.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?
