So even though I might have been a newbie at ordering online a year ago, the whole thing has taken a huge spin since and I keep on putting gorgeous pieces into those virtual carts, which is kind of a nightmare sometimes, really (especially the part of me going to the post constantly, because the courriers never seem to catch me at home). However, I must say, I enjoy online shopping much more than the normal one by now. Why? Well, basically, you can browse all you want and won’t be bumping into any people, tripping any hangers over and still have the full 3D image of the product. I am especially a huge fan of the video promotion some e-shops have! Also, it’s the best thing to do before you go to bed and need to calm your brain down a little (Nika would agree) or if you’re at one of those super boring lectures (which seem to be 99% of them now). The main reason I love all this virtual shopping is because I shop much more thoughtfully and actually spend less (if you think CPW-wise). My wishlists, saved items lists, dream boxes etc. keep on getting bigger and bigger, until I am 100% certain I really need the piece in my life. Whereas in a real shop, I feel like once I touch the piece, I have to get it, we have a connection and if I’d leave it behind, I would never ever find it again. And even though I am no magician like Eva, who keeps finding ah-mazing deals on eBay, I seem to bump into more great deals and sales online, than in the real life. And I am not pressured by them in anyway, because again, no people. So how about you, what do you prefer? Online or in real shop? Or otherwise – where do you spend more?
