My first shopping experience on #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…


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!


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.


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.

My Pick of Places to be FNOnyc (Fashion’s Night Out) Sept. 10

OK….orignally I’d decided upon 30 events but according to the cute and handy map on the FNOnyc website they were just so far apart. I then made the decision to break into nice tidy packages which worked out much better.

LOL, I’m not superwoman and neither are you. My suggestion is if it is not an invite only event…try to hit up at least 4 spots. It may be fashion night but wear comfortable Stylish shoes….be prepared to walk! I’m gonna fix up a cute little outfit for FNOnyc in a bit using my fave High Street retailer ASOS and my favourite designer online retailer TheOutnet.

What is beautiful about is that there will be soo much giveaways and many shopping incentives as well as the amazing FNO NYC Fashion Show to start it all on the 7th of Sept.
