The only thing better than online shopping is app shopping! More and more companies are creating apps where you can purchase direct from the comfort of your phone – wherever you may be. Stuck in peak hour traffic, why not purchase a new pair of shoes from The Iconic. Waiting at the doctors, no reason why you can pick up that blazer from Asos you’ve had your eye on! I’m sure I’m not the only one trawling my fashion apps for new items to purchase when I have a spare moment – watching TV, on the train or waiting inline for a coffee of a morning!
I must concede that whilst my wish list is always bursting at the seams, my shopping cart is a place where only the top performing pieces reside until pay-day. Very few items actually make this pile. You see I love the thrill of picking out item upon item I would snap up in a moments notice if I had unlimited funds or a body like Jennifer Lawrence, but in reality only the most cultivated of pieces make my shopping cart.
To become a top performing piece, the item must meet a certain criteria:
- Will it suit my body type
- Does this colour work with my complexion
- Will it work with at least 3 items already residing in my closet
- Is it versatile (can it be work to work, out for cocktails and to Sunday brunch)
- Can I return it, no questions asked
- Do I keep coming back to the item
If it passes this test , then to check out it goes! Here is a sneak peek of my current top performing pieces, I wonder which ones will graduate to the check out this pay…
