August Cart x Online Shopping Tips!


Basically my August Shopping Cart consists of 2 pairs of shoes, clothes, sunnies and a bag! HAHA! If you noticed, I’m currently channeling pre-fall for my August wardrobe. That’s why I added a few outerwears (leather, wool and denim) on my list and most colors are in dark and bold. Other than that, I have a few Online Shopping Tips for everyone since I’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding this topic.

I know most of you fear online shopping a lot. I did share the same fear before not until I actually tried doing online shopping. So before I got into online shopping, I used to have these questions: How do I pay for it? What if the package doesn’t arrive? What if the quality isn’t nice? I believe you have the same questions as well, right? So today I’ll be sharing my personal online shopping tips. Now I’m not saying that this works for everyone, it did work for me and I really hope it would somehow help you as well.

So before you click that “Checkout” button make sure you did a background check on the online shop. How would you know if they’re legit or not? what are their payment options, etc. Try to google about them for a few minutes before you go “ga-ga” over their products! If you see a lot of reviews from bloggers (the GOOD the better) or even a promising history about their shop and a good option for the payments, then you’re good to go!

It’s always important to know your budget before shopping (online or not). But the problem with online shopping is usually some shops don’t provide currency conversion and it would usually come in dollars/pounds. So it’s really important to know the latest currency exchange rate and convert everything on your calculator first and see if it’s worth the penny or not before adding it to your cart.

Well this may be so time consuming but believe me, it’s worth your time. So before I really really take my picks, I’d usually browse over the online shop’s complete collection so I can have tons of choices and at least I wouldn’t have regrets of not getting a product that I fail to see at the end. Usually the good ones are not on the first few pages. Usually they’re found in the middle or the lasts.

It is really really important to read the product’s description before even purchasing it. The points that I usually look at is the product’s material and sizing. I am really really particular about the material and the design. If I feel like the material doesn’t match the design, then I don’t usually go for it no matter how lovely it is. But knowing what the material is, you would know how long the product will actually last.

There you go. I hope these simple tips somehow helped you. If you have more questions, I would be more than happy to answer them below. :love:

    I love the tips! I'm itching to try online shopping and I'll remember these. I love the leather jacket! I want one but most are too expensive and I'm pretty sure I won't use it a lot. 🙁
