I'm really struggling with this whole "looking like I've woken up" post baby fashion thing. Its hard to get out of the trackies in the morning, and even harder to go shopping with two babes in tow and limited, single income funds.
Surely you find the same, right?!
I tried my fingers at online shopping last week to see if that would help the situation. I've never done clothes shopping online and was a little nervous!
I tried out Ezibuy's online catalogue, just the same as the physical thing but with the ease of doing it from my computer! I was pleasantly surprised with their selection, and as its coming into spring they already had all of their new stock listed (and their winter stock on clearance) so I made sure I was getting something that would suit the upcoming weather!
The brilliant thing is, instead of spending an afternoon at the mall going in and out of the same shop, humming and haa'ing over whether to purchase an item (because you know, tight funds mean I need to seriously think about it!), I just loaded up my online shopping cart and picked through them one by one at 10pm at night. I narrowed down my purchase to my budget, then flashed the screen in front of MrMoo to see if he concurred with my choices. I even emailed my cart to my Sister in London to get a second opinion.
Like my choices? I'm so desperate for some bright colours in my life after what seems like an eternally drab colourless winter. The top is a little crazy and I feel a bit out there wearing it, but I love love love the pants. They fit perfectly to my measurements that the sizing chart on the website said I would be. (Post baby body and all, it felt like a risk, but it wasn't at all)
This was my first time using the Ezibuy website and I'll definitely be buying more from there. When you sign up first time to the website it takes a few seconds to enter your details, then they email you a code to get your first order's shipping for free. It took one day for my goods to arrive on the "standard shipping" option. And if I order again, its only another 7 bucks or so for the same shipping option. (they also have a super easy returns policy, but I didn't need to use it!) Bargain. It's my new favourite way to shop! No more crowded shops wrangling kids and prams!
There's still hope for this busy Mama's wardrobe!
(ps, they also sell other things aside from woman's wear - Like NEXT kids clothing! My favourite brand of kids clothes straight from Europe! (but don't tell my Sister in London, she might stop sending them over if she knows I can get them here! Hehe)
As a mum, how do you buy your clothes? Have you tried doing it online? Leave a comment and let me know!
