It is WAY too easy to shop these days.
I can order an item from Amazon in one click, Target always has my credit card info saved and ready to go, and Nordstrom saves my cart for me then emails me so I don’t forget to purchase. But, have you ever been on the hunt for a certain item (think white jeans, gray ankle boots, etc) and been unable to find a good one? I’ve been there. I searched high and low for a pair of gray ankle boots but was never able to commit to any (in my price range). I would go to websites, search through all their ankle boots, then repeat until I had exhausted my options. Thankfully I’ve since realized the errors of my ways, and now use shopping sites, such as Octer or ShopStyle to make life easier.
I’ve been using ShopStyle for years, but Octer was a recent discovery. One thing I love is how their pages are set up. When I click on “women” I’m redirected to a wonderfully laid out grid with all my options. Does it get any easier?
I prefer to shop on sites such as Octer or ShopStyle when I’m looking for something specific; that way I don’t get distracted along the way. If I’m searching Banana Republic’s website for a pair of jeans, I generally end up with more in my cart than I came for. By searching and looking at only jeans, I’m able to compare different brands and prices side by side, without getting distracting everything else on the brand specific site.
Tell me, do you use any shopping sites to help you streamline or compare options? I would love to hear which ones you use!
PS. Gray ankle boot update: (even though you probably don’t care) I snagged a pair at Nordstrom’s anniversary sale that I think may be the winner. I’m going to debate them (aka stare at them, try them on in the house, model them with outfits in front of my mirror) for a few weeks then decide. Let me know what you think!
Happy Hump Day!
