The Evolution of Shopping

Years ago, while I was studying, it was so difficult to find the clothing and accessories I wanted. If you've read my 'About Me' page, you'll know that I'd go on style.com, trawling through each runway show, finding and saving my favourite looks. This made me want what was on the runway now. This proved to be extremely hard because the market for good fashion was small and if you were lucky and could find what you wanted, it was too expensive for a uni student to afford. Not only that, shopping online, for Australians, just wasn't feasible. Either the websites didn't accommodate for shipping outsite the U.S, or if they did, it would cost you $60 to ship your shopping cart that only totaled $70 (and top of that, it would be a month before you actually received you item/s).

 

Fortunately, the market has grown and along with it, the variety. You can now find those pieces (well, most of them) at varying price points at easy to reach places. The shopping centres are all being revamped to catch up to the online shopping industry and one can finally go shopping with a purpose without looking at window displays thinking, hm, I saw that two months ago online and here it says 'New Arrival'.

This brings me to this outfit which, I guess, encompasses all my previous points. The leather jacket is about five years old, from Burberry's Prorsum Spring 2010 runway collection. I bought it in store, snapping up the last one. The dress is a recent addition to my wardrobe from Glassons. Glassons has recently opened up a store in Macquarie Centre after the complex was given a much need overhaul. I found that this store was just want I needed - casual, everyday pieces that were on trend. Now, this brand has been around for a long while - I remember seeing it here and there, but the shop fronts didn't grab your eye like they do today. And finally, my shoes. If you follow me, you'll know that I practically live in these Axel Arigato sneakers - they are just so versatile. Standard shipping is free for those living outside the EU and you should only be kept waiting for about 4 to 6 working days - how amazing is that?

 

There are so many different ways to get what you want now, the only downside is that my bank account is constantly empty.
