I’m head over heels with this polkadot dress from Love Bonito, just arrived at the door today.
Something to ponder. Prior to this dress, I’ve actually stopped buying apparel from online shops due to the lousy material (you get what you pay for) and mostly free size (looks good on the model pic, loose on me). I should have get it earlier that picture can lie one, we have Photoshop after all.
So, I was back to purchase apparel from local shops. I get to touch the material and try on the clothes before paying for it.
But sometimes I find something chic from some online shops that isn’t available in the local shops. So, how, to buy or not to buy? *dilemma*
I’ll take many things into consideration, from the website design (being a web designer I am, duh) to the picture and reviews – I mean, real reviews found on the world-wide-web instead of some testimonial on the seller site – who knows has it been sugarcoated or honest one.
But still, online shopping gives an excitement and joy that I can’t get from shopping at the malls. Part of it is the waiting, it’s killing me but on another side it gives me excitement like how I can’t wait to see my other half during LDR time, or like the surprise of receiving custom flowers from the love one.
Guess it’s a love hate relationship with online shopping.
