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?
