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.

My Weekend Style Picks: Casual Bohemian

Ok, So I’m going to give you a glimpse into my style which I’m going to describe as Casual-Bohemian. You will come to find it is heavily influenced by prints and I’m a huge dress person. So I’ve rummaged my favourite e-retailers like they were my personal closet to give you my picks for the weekend. This process took just as long as it takes for me to pick out an actual outfit in my real closet the irony is so mind-blowing.

Now, there will always be a splurge item and this week it is a Jimmy Choo Sky large studded suede hobo which retails on Net-a-Porter for $2295usd. I never pack light so this is perfect for me and the colour is very versatile.

The steal is the ASOS Ethnic Bangle which retails for a whopping 10 pounds. So cute and I like to mix in tribal things or things with a vintage look see the Roberto Cavalli large marble disc necklace below.

The theme here is “Afternoon Delight” and this is how I would dress going out for a nice little lunch with my friends.

I mixed in some brand names with some discount retailers so your options are endless. I also gave myself room with a few necklace choices but the look there is definetly vintage.

All the pictures are clickable to their respective e-retailers so if you love something I encourage you to get! 

I had to mix in the statement blue Rupert Sanderson flats the entire ensemble just needed that pop of bright colour. 🙂

Enjoy and have a Fantastic weekend!

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why you shudn’t only be impressed by high end brands…do a mixer!

A mixer….????

Fashion Straight Up Definition

mixer~a glamourous mix of high, medium and low end brands

Speaking from a designer’s point of view (not a HIGH end one, YET!)

High end brands most often get their branding from decades and centuries of built up clientele and bodies of work. I know I did not say quality of product. I want to state it proudly quality is in the eye of the beholder.

She must be crazy???? :s That is what ur thinking but I simply am not going to be fooled by the media and hear say.

A true fashionista knows that innovation is just as compelling a buying force as brandname.

I would take an innovative lower-cost well made product from H&M any day over a high-priced well made product though not quite as innovative from Gucci.

P.S. wearing Burberry check head to toe is not cute. I REPEAT….NOT CUTE!!!

How about a cute Marc Jacobs clutch with a Forever 21 top, Levi jeans, top shop scarf, guess heels n vintage Marni jewellery.

Branders are no fun at all and it shows a lack of variety and fashion knowledge.

How are you gonna do your mixer today?
