There’s something magical about shopping online. I spend hours each week combing through my favourite sites. Saks Fifth Avenue is probably where I spend most of my time. Even if I don’t buy something, I love looking at the designer fashions and seeing the new arrivals.
When I do order something, I’m like a kid at Christmas! I anxiously anticipate the package delivery and tear through the outer wrapping like birthday and Christmas rolled into one.
The best part of online shopping is the access you have to anything and everything. For years, shopping in Canada was limited to bricks-and-mortar establishments. But, with online shopping, the world is at your fingertips (literally).
I’ve never had to return anything due to sizing concerns, and that partially due to the ease with which retailer websites make assessing the correct sizes. I also know how certain brands fit (Eileen Fisher – very large, Burberry – quite small) and I compensate accordingly.
Waiting for my packages reminds me of when I was a kid and all manner of things arrived by post. Bills. Letters. Gifts from distant relatives. Catalogues. Today you can get your bills delivered via email… but the delicious online orders still have to arrive by delivery. Sounds perfect to me.
