My first shopping experience on FARFETCH.com. #truestory

I love when amazing e-commerce sites are brought to my attention but I never trust a site until I personally peruse and shop for myself.

This should be of note: shopping is not usually something that I pass up. I’m easily excited by shopping in an unusual way and Farfetch offers enough great pieces to pacify me.

Now at first I wasn’t sure how to navigate it but I found out that the learning curve is actually pretty easy. I like to think of Farfetch as an online global fashion mall. Simple, no? Women fashion was the best way for me to start browsing. Now just like a mall there are departments. Well Farfetch makes it way with just three…

LUXE

This section is my favourite department for all of the obvious reasons…Emilio Pucci! Hello? Proenza Schouler’s amazing PS-1 bags, Burberry coats, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Nina Ricci, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana great luxe pieces are wonderfully edited into this section. You can find a selection of vintage and archived apparel and accessories from just about every uber-cool and specially selected high-end store across the world. Imagine vintage and this season’s Chanel shopping can be done in one place! It really doesn’t get anymore convenient. As a shopper who hates travelling from e-store to e-store to find that perfect item. Farfetch does it amazingly in a one stop shop and knowing that if I can’t get it the United Kingdom that Farfetch will have that item and ready to ship from Brussels. Where can you find that kind of high fashion global supply chain network? Nowhere, so look at some great pieces I selected below.

My Next Purchase!

CONTEMPORARY

I’m by nature a huge supporter of Contemporary brands they take a bit more risks at better prices than their luxury counterparts. A great example of this is Marc by Marc Jacobs’ diffusion line which is way more suited to my tastes than the Marc Jacobs label. I can equally appreciate both but I prefer to purchase MBMJ clothing and I adore their accessories. Farfetch let’s me go straight to the good stuff in the Contemporary department. Not only can I find my fave diffusion label I can also find other cool labels like Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Tucker, Closed, Ksubi, Eugenia Kim, 7 For All Mankind, Siwy Denim, Fred Perry and Tory Burch. This department is your jeans emporium and you will find most high-end denim labels in Contemporary. I left you with a few of my favourite pieces to look over below.

LAB

The Lab department is where you pick up your heart’s content of specialty pieces by brands that really are out of this world. The vision of the designers in this category is not necessarily commercial but definitely wearable. Farfetch’s Lab is compiled of perfect statement pieces and I’m totally obsessed with an amazing pair of Ha-Yeon Lee monkey nuts pictured below. It would be the quirky update to any outfit for a little bit of humour and style. I highly recommend that purchase.

All of your emerging fashion talent can be found in this section. I put together a montage of some of the pieces I would LOOOOVE to have and a few for the men too.

It was a such a treat discovering this site. So for my first purchase I went small super-small because I don’t know what shipping nightmare I might encounter and bought this super cute yet really affordable Baggu  Mociun reusable shopper.

It folds into a really cute portable pouch and is perfect for the grocery store or casual shopping. Luckily the entire process was easy-peasy and my bag will be shipped to me in a few days and as soon it is I have a surprise! I like to think of it as a symbolic purchase with Farfetch and represents my intent to continue shopping there for many years to come! I take my fashion that seriously.

The Milan Fashion Week Disappointments

Ok, so I will start my trilogy of critical observation with the bad and work my way towards the collections from Milan that I adored. Now my tastes have seemed to change this Spring season after being completely and totally bummed out after New York it was hard to post. I take fashion seriously and tried to be politically correct. I however found that style does not work for me.

I’m just going to be opinionated like I planned to be when I started the blog.

Here are my top four disappointments from Milan. Marni, Blumarine, Moschino and Emporio Armani.

I hated Emporio Armani’s menswear offering so im not completely surprised I hated their womenswear. It was the ridiculous gathered sheer skirts sticking out from underneath perfectly ok metallic skirts and the badly shaped jackets that ruined it for me. Marni was an actual disappointment in the truest sense for I love the eccentric style of the house but this Scuba Stevette offering for Spring was too much. There was too much dissection that had to be done to appreciate the beauty of the separates. Moschino was a mess. It was way too campy and literal. I also didn’t enjoy the way the prints were mixed. It was too far off trend to be amazing.  Worst of all of the disappointments was Blumarine… yuck. Too much animal print and done so garish I cannot believe that this was shown to a group of fashion experts at a presentation and no one saw the ridiculousness of 50 looks consisting of green, pink and blue leopard outfits. The fringe bags did NOT help the styling cause either. It was a mess. 

Anyways view for yourself and form your own opinion.

I’m just giving you mine Straight Up!

MOSCHINO: Styling Catastrophe

Emporio Armani: Sheer Nonsense

 

BLUMARINE: Leopard Madness

 

MARNI: Scuba Silly
