I do a fair bit of online shopping. I find it soooo much easier than going to a shopping centre or department store with two young boys in tow. If I do get an opportunity to go actual shopping on a weekend by myself then I have a lovely time but these days, online shopping is just so good and so much easier.
I love online shopping for clothes of course but I also buy things like kids clothes, home stuff, toys, books, gifts and office stuff (buying printer ink cartridges online has changed my life). When I put together my Moodboards for this blog, I cover a lot of online kilometres. While most of it is just “research” there are definitely times when I stumble across an amazing sale or item of clothing and so I do progress to the checkout.
Therefore I feel rather well qualified when it comes to rating online stores and the overall experience of each. Today I thought I’d share my favourite three in no particular order.
I have been shopping at Birdsnest for about six or seven years. The range is fantastic with over 250 brands being available and this covers clothes, shoes, accessories, the lot. Their customer service is probably the highlight though with 365 day returns – YES that’s one whole year to exchange or refund on any item!
They also have an awesome Outfit Inspiration section where you can search for outfit types that suit your lifestyle then you can click through and purchase the exact items if you desire.
More recently, Birdsnest have introduced their own brands to the store. Boho Bird, Nest Picks and Bird Keepers do a fantastic range of everyday styles at great prices.
Wearing the Feel Good Dress by Bird Keepers currently on sale for $49.95.
This store has grown to be HUGE and now stocks an amazing selection of brands (600 in fact!) from all the surfwear labels to fashion brands like Minkpink, All About Eve, Ladakh, Sass and Living Doll. Surfstitch also offer super quick delivery and express shipping is free on orders over $50.
The site is fairly large so it works well if you search on the type of item you’re looking for. For example, last wee.k I searched “denim shorts” within womenswear and I was presented with 221 options! It’s also a handy store for stylish menswear should any males in your life require new clothes.
Wearing shorts by RPM at Surfstitch. Looks like these are no longer available but just search “striped shorts” and you’ll find many a pair.
This is another site that I have shopped at for years. I receive the regular Ezibuy catalogues in the mail and it’s like a free magazine subscription! The catalogues are fantastic and I often end up browsing more options in their online store. They have a range of brands which cater to all ages, styles and budgets but you can also just search on particular types of items.
Ezibuy is great for clothes like workwear, basics (tees, shorts and pants) and dresses. They also have a great range of shoes, sleepwear and lingerie and there is always a sale or promotion on offer.
I just recently purchased this rainy day jacket (currently on sale for $45) from Ezibuy because everyone tells me it rains at school pickup time!
I would love to hear about any other great online stores worth checking out. Which are your favourites?
