Online Shopping. It’s great when you find a bargain or when your too lazy to get out of bed and to the shower to visit retail stores and be pestered by shop assistants acting like they’re your best friends calling you ‘babe’ and telling you how good you look in a dress that’s two sizes too small but it’s looks fantastic because it’s the only size they have left. But then there’s the downfall, the added postage costs, the patience you must possess to receive a 3 week order from America and of course there’s no try-before-you-buy policy, so that perfect-fitting size 10 you ordered is really a super skinny size 6, oh shit.

This surge towards online shopping will allegedly cost Australia 50,000 jobs over the next five years, according to the National Retail Association. Does that make you feel guilty for wanting to save an extra $20 on that last dress you purchased online despite seeing it in MYER? It really is all your fault.

But I’m sure the guilt will subside as soon as you get that email from ASOS forcing you to click the link because there’s another 20% off for students, just your luck!

I’m not trying to turn you against online shopping in fact I’m encouraging it. It is far too convenient for that. However, I don’t encourage you to spend your week’s wage on that $120 cha cha dress from princesspolly. Yes, we all love it, but eating is important too.

With so many clothing sites sometimes it’s hard finding the right one, or it can become too monotonous visiting the same site every week, or every day or every hour (ok too far, you need help).  Hopefully I can introduce you too some original sites and help you save that desperately needed time and money by doing the hard work for you.
