shopping online


Hello friends. How many of you shop for clothes online? I know there are tons of lovely websites where you can shop all kinds of brands online but I’m the kind of person who likes to go exploring until something catches my eye and I have to try it on, look at it from every angle until I decide to buy it! But i’ve been a bit sad about the lack of a nice summer shoes in shops lately. I don’t like wearing pumps too much in summer, cause they don’t breathe so well.. and flip flop sandles can be uncomfortable and your toe nails ALWAYS need to be in good shape.

I got these shoes last year at Billabong and I LOVE the woven look. They’re so comfortable, they breath and are easy to slip on and off (I bought two identical pairs). But they’re looking quite scruffy now that i’ve worn both pairs to death.

Soo i’ve been on the look out for something similar without much luck.. until I looked at the ASOS website. [sidebar: I could spend hours on that site, creating dream shopping baskets ; )] and a few weeks ago I decided to take the risk order some shoes, THESE ONES below.. what do you think?

I really hope they fit! and they come out as nicely as they look in the pictures! I’m watching that post box closely!

For other sites, try fashion by Steffen Schraut, Style Bop and Urban Outfitters for some other lovely fashion

This is as close as some of us will get to buying the all the overseas brands that we know and love, without having to buy a plane ticket. Thankfully in about a months time we’ll be able to get our ZARA fix! eek!

ps. ASOS is having a huge online sale at the moment. go check it out.
