Raindrops and roses and whiskers on kittens. Funkis on sale and Hard to Find mittens. ASOS and Cavalli for Target and fairy girl wings, these are a few of my favourite things.
Online shopping. I am in lust. Sadly I’m financially challenged, and the number of steps required to actually check out the items once putting them in my cart enables me to browse to my heart’s content, really considering my purchases without much in the way of actual impulse buying happening. I know it doesn’t work this way for everyone, but that’s how it works out for me, so right now shopping online is almost scratching my shopping itch. Almost.
Here are a few of my favourite things.
Hard to Find is one of my favourite online shopping sites, for ingeniously putting all of the most gorgeous things out there on one site. A year or so ago I bought this watch from WeWood that I still love, and it’s now available at hardtofind.
These Gato stained bamboo sunglasses are on my lust list. And they’re polarised, which is a plus if you, like me, spend your life with your eyes scrunched up against the glare.
And then there’s this scarf by Hug me Harry. Which I really, really need to have. But maybe for next winter so I’ll sit on this one for a bit and see if I still need it in a couple of months.
My all time time favourite website for feet is Funkis. They are an Australian company with a wide selection of Scandinavian design, and a lot of beautiful objects with Swedish influence. Happily for me (with large feet) they make fabulous Swedish clogs that keep my feet happy ALL DAY.
If you can grab a pair like these on sale, for around $50 plus shipping, you’ll have even happier feet – like my blue ones.
I’ve just found out Roberto Cavalli is doing a range for Designers for Target, being released tomorrow. It’s all available online too, which is brilliant, since the deterrent for me with previous ranges like Stella McCartney were its lack of availability. It was only in some stores, and I’m a lover, not a fighter. I didn’t feel like getting my elbows out to race to the racks. For this lot though? I don’t think browsing and lusting will cut it. I might need to bust out the real-life plastic for these particular pieces below since it’s so affordable. Put it on the never-never!
Am I the only person who shops online without actually shopping? Do I have some kind of weird uber-restraint? Or is there a secret gang of us playing ‘shop’ like we did when we were kids with our plastic fruit and shopping trolleys?
