We’ve almost made it, Stylers.
Soon we’ll be saying farewell to winter and a big opened-arm hello to spring!
And you know what this means? New season stock.
But first, we need to know where to shop.
So today we’ll be discussing one of my favourite things to do…
Yes, you heard me right; my name is Samantha Cheney and I am an avid online shopper.
Check my Safari any day and you’re guaranteed to see a stack of tabs open and my favourite shops bookmarked. Who doesn’t love arriving home to find a beautifully packaged parcel all for yourself?
AND – not to mention that you don’t even have to set foot in a store. Bonus!
Apparently pyjamas and ugg boots isn’t an acceptable dress code for places other than your couch anyway? 😉
All I can say is THANK GOD for online shopping.
Besides the pretty packaging and hand-written greeting cards, I love online shopping because:
1. It’s affordable
2. Half the time the customer service online is 100% better than in store shopping
3. Delivery is generally either free or extremely cheap – and also quick!
And finally … there’s a larger range online too.
Where to shop online?
First up and best dressed is Telstra 2015 Queensland Business of the Year, Beginning Boutique.
Sarah Timmerman first launched Beginning Boutique in 2008 after a trip to Paris, and has since built a powerful social media presence to sell exclusive garments, designer labels and wholesale stock.
With Beginning Boutique offering around the clock service and free shipping at the low cost of a $50 purchase, what more could a 16-24 year old want?!
Oh that’s right – you also receive a free gift with each order.
Not only can you contact Beginning Boutique on their direct mobile line, all business queries sent via email are guaranteed to be responded to within 2 hours. And if that isn’t enough for you to jump on board, this multi-award winning boutique also grants free returns on all full-priced orders.
As an added bonus, if you’re also a student, say hello to 10% off storewide all year round. Winning!
So if you’re like me and love to sport a range of different styles, then look no further. Beginning Boutique adds new stock each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – making it the perfect online shopping destination for all.
And remember – as Nikki says- don’t buy it, unless you love it!
So tell me, do you or your teenager shop online? Where are your favourite places to shop?
