Shopping just isn’t the same as it used to be…
I don’t know if it’s because of the dreaded GFC (Global Financial Crisis), the fact that I have more responsibilities, or even that I’m pickier with the things I buy. One thing I do know is that shopping in Perth sucks! Despite the stock-take sales happening, and my actively going to all these shops looking for something to buy, I only bought 4 items! And I didn’t have to fight for it!!
Even shopping in Melbourne and Sydney aren’t much better as the shops available are almost identical, the same styles and trends happening. Every item I buy in Australia is bought with difficulty because I know there is always a risk that someone else I know will wear it. I clearly remember a patient of mine coming in wearing the very SAME DRESS I bought from Melbourne! All that effort to buy something different from another state wasted due to the fact that Perthians love to travel
As mentioned in my previous post YesStyle, I had my very first online shopping experience of buying clothes!
It was a dress I found from ASOS and their free shipping Australia wide regardless of $ spurred me to make take the plunge. The delivery was supposed to be about 7 days but somehow was delayed for another week (during that time I had purchased, received and worn my items from YesStyle!).
The dress itself was pretty good although the colour on the website was duller than the actual piece – luckily it’s still something I can wear. Generally I’m not overly excited by the items on ASOS because it’s similar (if not exactly the same) to what I can get in the shops, but I’ve been eyeing a pair of jeans and a piece of jewelry on the site ever since they notified me of a further 10% off
The only thing holding me back at the moment is the fact that I have reached my credit limit and have bills to pay Alternatively I could find jeans at YesStyle for a lower price, but the jewelry I’ll have to distract myself and hope the urge will pass…. wish me luck….
