I must confess that online shopping is my weakness. Since I am a fashion blogger I fell in love with it and I really don’t have the patience to go in stores anymore and try items the old fashioned way. In order to become an online shopping master you must know some rules that I came to learn in more than 3 years of experience.
First of all you need to know which are the trustworthy shops and you can find out by just checking some other bloggers reviews that recommend them.
Last week it was a good week for me because I chose to order another Michael Kors bag from LuisaViaRoma. It is very important to buy such designer items from such big retailers. I have heard only good things about LuisaViaRoma but this was my first time ordering from them and I must confess that they have surprised me in a good way. I have placed the order on the 2nd of August around noon and the next day by the same hour it was delivered to me.
You have to be really careful with the custom taxes. For example for this bag from LuisaViaRoma there were no taxes to be paid as the shop is from Italy and I have ordered to Romania, both countries belonging to the EU. So, if you are from Europe you must know that this is the website from which you need to order. Even if you are from a different country almost every online shop has a section about shipping, taxes and conditions.
When you order from LuisaViaRoma you get a tracking code with which you can track your order and you can see where it is in real time. This is a plus if you have things to do that day and you need to know the exact time at which the courier will arrive.
Also before you order anything whether it is a bag or an item you must check the sizes. For clothing I have learned my sizes the hard way and even though they differ from website to website and designer to designer there will be always a size chart with more details and measurements. So grab a centimeter and see what your actual sizes are. The same rule applies to bags and shoes. I wanted to know the exact size of this Michel Kors Mini Selma bag in order not be surprised when I receive it.
I even order flowers online, like this box filled with flowers and macarons that I got from Via Flowers that also has a surprisingly fast delivery.
This was my advice regarding online shopping and feel free to ask me more questions in the comments below if you need some more aspects to be clarified.
