Vive les soldes!

This is the season to be jolly and all the stores are full of crazy shoppers looking for the best bargains. But this is the time of the season when I hate going shopping. There are far too many rude people who just barge and push as if you don't exist. The stores are always too hot, sales persons are always too aggressive and by the end of the day my toes are in agony!What I enjoy most is shopping on-line! It is so convenient and practical. You don't have to leave the house, go from one shop to another and make price comparisons or deal with (other) crazy bargain hunters. You can spend the day in front of your computer wearing your pajama and drinking coffee. Now, how good is that! All you need to do is to lift one finger (or two) and wait for the goods to be sent. Bloomingdales for example is having amazing discounts that grabbed my attention immediately. They offer 40-50% reduction on already marked down prices. You can find amazing deals on designer brands like D&G, Michael Kors, DKNY, Juicy Couture and many more. Victoria Secret proposes free shipping on purchases more then $100. I recommend make-up by Christian Siriano which is reduced to 50%. I love his lip gloss and eye shadow.





Despite the many pluses of on-line shopping, there are a few negatives. Not everything is displayed on the websites. DSW for example, the best shoe store in San Francisco (in my opinion), has many deals on Emporio Armani shoes, Prada or Ralf Lauren which you can’t find on their website. You also have to be lucky to find the size you need or color. Sometimes what you see on the screen is not as pretty as in real life. And you have to be aware of on-line fraud!

My wallet didn’t thank me today but my self-esteem began to recover. Ouch..
