Today's Everyday Fashion: 5 Reasons Online Shopping Is Better


New dress, shoes, and earrings today, and I scored all of them online for under $50! Woot woot! Over the years, I have come to love online shopping and I buy almost everything that way these days. Here’s why:

  1. More selection. There are so many more styles, fits, colors and sizes available online than stores can possibly stock within their four walls. If you’re shopping in-person, you could be missing out on a lot of great options!

  2. Saves money. You can strategize and hit “purchase” whenever there’s a good sale online, versus paying whatever the price happens to be that day in the store. And with free shipping both directions, there’s often no additional costs. You can save so much money!

  3. Trying on is better. The biggest objection I often hear about online shopping is “I need to try things on.” But online shopping is the BEST for that! Try it on in the comfort of your home.

  4. More time to decide. When you’re in a store you have to decide on the spot if you like something (or risk a second trip to the store to return it later!). But if you order online, you typically have 30-45 days to mull it over. You can text a friend a picture or try it on with different options in your closet.

  5. More organized. At a store, clothes are folded in a stack or hung up behind one another. You have to dig and move things around. Browsing online is lightning speed and super-organized. You can filter out things based on budget and size. Plus see it on a human which brings it to life!
