Why don’t more people shop for shoes online? That’s a question that many
specialist internet shoe stores are constantly looking to answer. Many of us
realise that we can get some great deals from shopping online, but it seems
that shopping for shoes in this way is something that doesn’t come natural to
most of us.
In order to get close to answering the question, it’s clearly important to
look at some of the factors that put people off shopping this way. A key
problem that I’ve heard friends mentioning is that they like to try shoes on
before buying them. They reason that such an approach is certainly not possible
if using an internet retailer.
This raises some interesting questions immediately. An important one is
whether trying on shoes in this way is really very useful. It certainly should
be if you really do take the time to try shoes on and to make sure that they’re
comfortable. Unfortunately, few of us really take the time to adopt such an
Most of us tend to rush our purchases, mainly because we’re in a hurry.
That means that we may not know about the relative comfort levels offered by a
pair of shoes until we have worn them a few times.
The other important thing to remember is that most internet companies are
used to the fact that shoppers will sometimes want to return items. That means
that you could try the shoes on in the comfort of your own home and maybe even
wear them for a day or two to see if they’re comfortable.
If they’re not then you could return them to the store at that point. In
other words, shopping online could actually help you to find more comfortable
footwear. When things are put in …
Looking after our appearance has long been the aim of many women, particularly as we move into the warmer summer months and get ourselves beach ready. Knowing how best to enhance the skin on your face to give you a healthy glow is a consideration for most people. There is nothing worse than finding yourself some beautiful Maxi Dresses for the summer and then feeling that your skin is leaving you looking all washed out. ax paris maxi dresses come in a variety of colours and patterns much like with other stockists and you can ensure that you pick a style that works with your own skin complexion and colour tones. We all know about the three step cleanse, tone and moisturise routine, but there’s one step that may be missing. Is it time you considered a serum?
Get the skinny on serums
Simply put, serums have a greater content of active ingredients and smaller molecules to intensively penetrate the skin. Kristofer Buckle, a makeup artist to the stars, claims that a regular serum habit can minimise pores and make skin smoother, softer and firmer. A serum can typically be implemented into your daily skincare routine after cleansing and before moisturising, but it’s always best to check the specific instructions of the product in question and do a patch test before first use.
Serums versus other products
Serums can moisturise, but they do so to a lesser extent. A serum should be used after cleansing, followed by a moisturiser, which is thicker, to lock in the goodness you’ve applied beforehand.
Serums are generally water-based with small molecules to get deeper into the skin. Some, however, are marketed as being oil-based, which have larger molecules and should, therefore, be applied on top of other creams to lock in the goodness.…
Fashion and shopping are either loved or hated throughout the world,
depending on the individual. Thanks to today’s ever-growing technology and the
internet, consumers now have a broader range of options when it comes to
finding the latest trends, especially those who would rather due without than
tackle crowded stores and malls. Purchasing clothes online can be tricky
business, especially when it comes to knowing how well things will fit.
Fortunately, there are a few things that you can keep in mind to avoid the
battle of ill-fitted clothes in the future.
One thing to take into consideration is knowing your measurements. While
it’s easy to go strictly by dress size, pant size, large, medium or small,
often times clothing sizes will vary on how they will fit. Since you’re not
able to try clothes on as easy as you would in the stores, it’s important to
make sure that you know your actual measurements are to ensure the proper fit.
You can generally obtain your correct measurements by asking a friend or
relative to help you out, using measuring tape, or have a professional tailor
or seamstress help you. There are also inexpensive measuring tapes that are
designed specifically to measure body size, and many of them are made so that
it’s easy to do even on your own and to do so as accurately as possible. Common
areas that you may want to measure their shoulders, bust, waist, hips, inseam,
from neckline to hem or waist, and sleeve length. You can find numerous
tutorials on how to do this properly online, as well as for knowing how to size
vintage-type clothing or international sizing, if need be.
Many clothing sites will have measurements to go by, or at least a sizing
chart that will be relatively accurate for …
Retail stores seem to
be shrinking their sizes. What once was a size 10 is now a size 4. How are any
of us supposed to shop? The answer is the World Wide Web. Online retailers are
making it easy to get just the size you need. I’ve even found websites that
carry up to size 10X in select styles. There is a great selection out there for
Men and Women’s plus size fashion. Here are some rules to follow when shopping
online for plus size apparel.
1. Measure yourself: Knowing your own measurements will help immensely when shopping online because often times online retailers provide sizing charts. You can directly compare your measurements with that of the garment and know if it will fit you. The best type of measuring tape to use is a tailor measuring tape (it’s soft and not ridged). If you don’t have one, you can simply use a piece of string, wrap it around your body, cut the string where it meets and measure that.
2. Measure your Clothes: If you have something that fits great, you should measure it. This way you can find garments online that are cut the same (especially in the length).
3. KIS- Keep it Simple: Don’t try to buy elaborate items online (like prom dresses). The simpler the item, the more standard it is and the more likely it will fit correctly. We all know that returning things can be a hassle.
4. Buy V-Necks: V-necks elongate the neck and make you look overall taller and slimmer. So if you ever have a choice, go with the V.
5. Darker Colors: Darker colors are always flattering on everybody. Because you’re buying online stick with colors that you already know look great on you!…
