Recently I have become obsessed with this shop! I found out about it when shopping for prom dresses a couple of months back and now I cannot stop looking!
Shopping on the internet has become the 21st century phenomenon (for people obsessed with clothes anyway!), you can shop for your wedding dress while eating breakfast in your PJ's! Its a really helpful tool that allows you to shop anytime, anywhere and a few online shops caught my attention. ASOS has become my new obsession!
If you have a look on the website (HERE) you will find that each section is packed with numerous styles, colours and not to mention a great price range. You will find River Island and Burberry items right next to each other so you really are able to find a variety of clothing, I always tend to drop the price range bar at the side, out of the hundreds so that I can see the items I am likely to buy a lot easier. The amazing range means that you are likely to find just what you are looking for and something that no-one else is likely to have.
They also have many deals, there is always a sale section which has some great offers (although I have never found anything there) and many promotions which mean that you can get the best price. I always get a student discount with my NUS card which helps a little bit, this can alter from 10% to 25%. And you can get free delivery which is so helpful! The delivery service is amazing, you are able to get your item(s) in 3-4 days (which does actually happen!) and they are well packaged, I have never had a problem with my delivery!
Today I discovered the 'marketplace' section which allows you to buy and sell clothes online with a great range of vintage clothing for amazing prices. It consists of boutiques selling their ranges of clothing and accessories to you, returns are allowed but you have to be careful to read through all of the information so you know what each return policy is. Also, you should read the description about each item because the condition is varied, just like at a normal marketplace, for example check that watches have batteries included because vintage watches are likely to need specific batteries that will cost a lot and be difficult to find. The delivery might also be different for 'marketplace' and I can't tell you how fast it will be because each item varies, make sure to read about this too! But this is a great way of finding vintage clothing for cheaper prices, you just need to keep your wits about you!
In my opinion this is shopping from home at its best, however I do wish that ASOS offered people to write reviews so that I could see the quality and more sizing details of the item. Reviews are very helpful and I make sure to read them before buying a product.
If you are looking for other websites like this I also recommend boohoo.com but in my opinion this has less selection but lower prices, I tend to check both to find the best deal (boohoo has a 10% student discount!).
Hope you found this helpful, happy internet shopping!
