The Savvy Shopper has a Global Perspective.
For the first time ever, there are no limitations to shopping, but not everybody utilises this fantastic ability we have today. Not so long ago, to pick up a beautiful bag sold only in New York, we would have to get on a plane, or to get the best of the sales, we’d have to camp outside the store in the early hours. Online shopping has changed all of this, and with the right tools and knowledge, you really can have it all, and at the best price too.
Never before have we been able to shop accessories in Argentina, cashmere in Canada, bags in Berlin and dresses in Dublin…with out having to hop on a plane first.
Something holiday makers have always done, is picked up quality items they wouldn’t be able to get their hands on else where, because we love eclectic style, and picking up truly unique pieces, but today, online shopping changes everything.
Through the wonder of the world wide web, we can purchase stunning items from all across the globe. Style is so unique from culture to culture, and as creative and inquisitive creatures, many of us love the individuality of pieces from around the globe. Today, we have access to amazing items world wide, at great prices.
The savvy shopper knows this, and also knows all the best places to shop for items from afar. What many of us don’t realise, is that there are thousands of online stores globally, that ship word wide, and at a great price too, meaning you no longer have to make the trip to L.A to stock up on your favourite brands. Simply turn your laptop on, select your must have items, and check out. Sure you might have to wait a few extra days, but the wait is well worth it.
Many of us will probably remember how sale season used to go. It would be advertised on TV, start at 6am, and if you wanted to get your hands on anything decent, you’d have to be on the high street at 2am, with your flask of coffee to keep you going, while you waited for the doors of your favourite high street store to open.
Today the situation is quite different. No waiting in line, no scrabbling over the last pair of size 5 Chelsea boots, just do it online! By signing up to all your favourite stores newsletters, you can be the first to know about the sales, and of course this goes for your favourite global brands too. Yes you might have to set an alarm and shop when half asleep, yes you might have to be quick as stock is limited, but you get to do it all from the comfort of your home, and what’s more is you can get the things you want from all over the world, at a great price. If you’re really savvy, you’ll rely on homelike such as myself to keep you informed of what’s happening, where, when, and jump on it when it’s a shopping tip that suits you.
The savvy shopper uses the tool that is the internet to their advantage, shopping for those key pieces world wide, and just at the right time too, to get the best price. The world really is your oyster when it comes to shopping online.
