It’s always interesting to see who purchases clothing online, and who doesn’t. There’s always a few of each in a crowd who are adamant about their stand on internet clothing purchases.
“I can’t try anything on, how am I supposed to know if it’ll fit?!”
“I can’t find things in stores that I can find online… Why settle when you could have exactly what you want?”
The arguments are endless.
As for me, I love buying stuff online. I love getting things for the lowest possible price and finding pieces that are handmade or independently designed. Clearly, I must have some kind of loyalty to the internet, as I’ve been running this site for over three years and have never posted about something not available online… But I see the points of those who oppose my perspective. I get the sizing thing, and can absolutely appreciate needing to feel fabric before dropping dollars.
And I definitely know the frustrations that accompany an anti-climactic, This Doesn’t Fit experience. I’m no stranger to the twitch-inducing act of silently kicking myself for not being able to try something on as the garment itself hangs off of or desperately clings to my body. And, while they say Taurus is a patient sign, I have yet to see evidence of this and 3-5 business days is long enough, thank you.
So, I’m curious… Do you shop online? If so, how often? And why?
