I generally shop online a lot more than braving the shops in London. There's something a lot more satisfying about having parcels arriving for you from my favourite fashion retailers, isn't there? Even if Barry the Postman does hate me for the amount of parcels he has to deliver to my house. Soz Baz!
However, there are downfalls of online shopping. It can get rather tedious especially if I am looking for something in particular and I just want to crawl into bed and watch a film. I often open up tab after tab after tab of items I like and then end up accidentally closing the browser and lose all of the items I was pondering. Am I the only one who does this?!
I was recently introduced to Lyst which is an online wish list website where you essentially create "lysts" of your favourite things. You can shop a whole bunch of different retailers; both high street and designer in one place. It saves so much time and hassle having to hunt down the perfect LBD for example. Just pop in the search bar what you're looking for and it will present lots of different results from different retailers.
There is also a 70% sale ALL YEAR ROUND which makes things a lot more (dangerously) fun! It's so sad when seasons transition and the sales come to an end. However, you're guaranteed high street and designer bargains all year round when it comes to shopping on Lyst!
I chose some of my favourite items after having a little look around. I thought I would share them with you because no doubt someone of you will love them too!
Slightly on the pricier side of things are these Loeffler Randall Isla floral embroidered boots. I don't think they need much describing to be honest as they do the talking for themselves. However, I do love good statement boots and these paired with black skinnies and a leather jacket would look sweet. I love a quirky slogan tee so this Cotton Modal-blend t-shirt by Mango really stood out for me as I am an adventurer! As soon as I saw the Sequin Fruit Denim Skirt by Topshop; I knew it would be something I would end up adding to a wishlist. Iron on transfers are everywhere and who doesn't love fruit?!
I love back packs and I love velvet so of course it was inevitably going to be love at first sight when I saw this Skinny Dip Velvet Backpack from Topshop. It's also a really good price at just £30 for an on trend, statement bag. Winter is around the corner which means the tradition of a splurge on a new coat to keep me warm is fast approaching. The salt and pepper wool coat by Topshop really caught my eye as it looks like it would match 95% of my wardrobe and also looks super cosy. Finally, I've been after the Copenhagen Star Trainers by Topshop for ages but haven't managed to find a pair in a size 5 in-store so I may have to order them online through Lyst!
I will definitely be using Lyst in the future when I am doing a big shop or looking for one specific item. It's much easier and takes so much stress off shopping!
