Posts Tagged ‘online shopping’

I’m a big online shopper and it’s been gaining steadily in popularity with retailers, much to my glee. So, holiday sales and boxing day/boxing week sales are aplenty these days, even online. Which means you don’t have to brave the crammed malls to score some good deals. And, since I live in a fairly large city, I’m usually lucky enough to get my orders in 2-3 days.

I bought some work clothes online at Cleo (www.cleo.ca), all for $97 with free shipping. Normally (i.e. not on sale), it would have amounted to about $250, so score one for moi.

So I went on an online shopping spree yesterday. I had some work to do and in between gaps (times where I was waiting for processes to run while sitting in front of my computer), I shopped. Put me in front of a computer with time to spare and it’s a dangerous, dangerous thing. But – I hadn’t gone fall shopping yet (I know – so late!!) so figured now was a good a time as any.

The loot below is en route as we speak! This time I shopped at stores I don’t normally shop at so it’ll be interesting to see the fabric/fit/quality once they arrive. ‘Cause I’m adventurous like that. 🙂

Once you find your right size at a new store, it’s super-easy to shop online going forward. I have yet to return anything I’ve bought online. Tip – use their measurement charts – they’re there for a reason. 🙂

From Banana Republic:

Cute top - under a black cardigan in fall/winter and sleeveless in the warmer months. I love ruffles.

Fall trends: Tie-neck blouse and animal print (2 for 1!!)

From the Gap:

The only thing I’ve ever bought from the Gap previously were jeans… But they have some very cute stuff these days.

I got both the blouse and the sweater. Cozy.

From Old Navy (I love this store for basics/layering but found a couple of cuties this time):

Chiffon blouse will go perfect underneath my raspberry-coloured wrap cardigan from VS..

Who doesn't love a winter sweater? Picture it paired with jeans, a cami and a mug of hot chocolate. Need I say more?

From Talbots:

I needed a pair of good, simple black pants. I got these (but in black). I like that Julianne Moore is the new face for Talbots and I saw her in a magazine ad so I checked out the site.

I also spent my egift card at VS (received for my bday – thanks Christina!!) but I won’t be posting my purchase details on the internet. 🙂

There are some other stores I’m curious about and will eventually buy from. Like White House Black Market – they have some great clothes for work. The reviews from other shoppers are on the site and are positive – that’s always a good sign. Club Monaco is another. I used to be a Reitmans fan back in the day (and they have a new online store now) but I lean more towards their sister stores Cassis and RW-Co lately – but those don’t have online shopping (yet!). And H&M is always good for trends (no online option). So, when I hit the mall I make sure to visit the stores with no online shopping option first. 🙂

You may have noticed that I have yet to buy a fall/winter 2011 bag. I’m still on the hunt…nothing has called out to me yet. what can you do?!

Loving these faux-fur trim booties from VS:

This cardigan from VS:

Another cardi from VS – gorgeous colour:

Loving the loafer pumps for fall, with skinny or stacked heel.


Still no developments on any fall/winter bags that have caught my eye. I’m actually leaning towards black this year – maybe try something different. 🙂

I just ordered these.

Since there will be plenty of walking during our vacation, and my old ones are getting pretty worn, I decided to get new ones.

Skechers “Bikers Proposal” Mary Jane style shoes:

So I caved and bought 4 of these babies. Instead of paying almost $85 for a set of 2, Amazon.com had them for $55 (set of 2). So I got 4.

So I want to buy icewine glasses. Like these from Riedel.

Not sure I want to spend $66 for 2 glasses though… If I can find any in the same style (I prefer the angular look instead of the rounded ones), that would be great. Suggestions on where they would sell these are welcome!

I’ll see if I can find any online…
