5 Reasons Why I Prefer to Shop Online

Wednesday, 10 August 2016

why i prefer to shop online, online shopping

I love shopping and I love clothes. I mean, who doesn't? Being surrounded by rows upon rows of items is a kind of heaven to me. But shopping in busy shops can sometimes be a bit overwhelming for someone who gets stressed easily and is a bit too shy.

1. People

As a shy and awkward person I'm not really a fan of the atmosphere in overcrowded shops. All the people walking around from rack to rack and loud talking makes me feel a bit nervous. Now don't get me wrong. I know the nice sales assistant is trying to help me but I can't handle the extra pressure of talking to her while trying to decide what to go for. Sometimes it's nicer to ask google for help in order to not have any awkward social interactions.

2. Decisions

I'm horrible at deciding. Most times I will go around the shop quite a few times until I make a decision on what to choose. I usually end up getting stressed and that's why I prefer to shop online. I can go back to the same dress 4,5 or even 6 times before deciding to add it to the cart.

3. Packages

I love opening packages full of clothes or makeup and going through everything one by one. It nearly feels like Christmas has come early. Also, who doesn't love the convenience of getting their shopping at their doorstep?

4. The changing rooms

I honestly dread the changing rooms. The queues, the dodgy cubicle curtains, the mirrors, the lighting and the mess inside. I would much rather not try the clothes than letting some random woman see me flash my thigh from between the lopsided curtains. I also hate the process of trying on the clothes. I usually get really frustrated while trying them and end up rejecting nearly all of them because I think that they look awful when they actually look fine.

5. Time

Imagine going to the shops for a quick browse in the middle of the night in your pjs! You can never do this in real life but you can online. You can also go back to shopping anytime you want. I love that I can do this from the comfort of my own home at any time, be it 3 in the afternoon or 3 at night!

PS. What Sarah Writes has had a makeover! I have been thinking about getting a refresh for a long time and after countless hours browsing on Etsy I decided on this one. I hope that you like the new layout as much as I do.

Where do you prefer to shop?

  5. I totally agree with all of the points you made above!! I hate making decisions and I love opening packages. When I go out to shop it always ends with me getting very little and never seeing anything I like. Great post!

  6. I'm exactly the same, if I don't try things on in the comfort of my own home. Nine times out of ten I won't like it! Opening packages and taking your own time to make decisions is just so much easier.

  9. I really like your points here! Shopping online has definitively a lot of benefits. However, I sometimes still like go shopping in physical shops just because I like to look at things for real :) Have a great day!

  11. Your blog layout is beautiful! I can completely understand why you prefer online shopping - I can't handle talking to a sales assistant while trying on clothes either, it adds so much pressure. I still prefer shopping in stores because unfortunately most skirt, trousers etc don't fit it. I like ordering shirts online though xx

  13. I'm a bit of both, but I do feel awkward in shops because I'm so indecisive that I think the shop assistants might become a bit suspicious at how long I loiter around things haha

  20. I agree with everything you just said! I can't stand when the sales assistants follow you everywhere and are trying to explain everything about every product! Opening packages is the best thing ever! Especially when you don't know what's inside, I love when I buy stuff and then forget about it so when it arrives is like a little surprise from me, to me, haha :)

  25. I honestly don't mind shopping at the stores, I do enjoy..except during Christmas season then you wont find me a near a mall! However, getting a package in the mail is seriously one of my guilty little pleasures! Even if I know what it is, it's like christmas morning when I come home and find that box on the porch! Great post lovely!

  28. I couldn't agree more about wanting to avoid seeing people, especially people I know (I live in a small town), which makes online shopping so much more appealing. I especially like that now a lot of sites have free shipping!

  29. Yesssss girl. I LOVE online shopping, I swear there is nothing better than coming home to a new package! Plus all I ever wear is black, white and grey so I love being able to filter online and only look at stuff I'm actually likely to buy instead of wandering round a shop filled with random ass shit I wouldn't look twice at!

  34. I love shopping online because I'm extremely indecisive as well! I can never decide if I want to buy something or not and I hate just standing around in the store awkwardly while I decide, haha
