Online Shopping Like A Pro
This post is sponsored by La Redoute.
You guys all know by now I am partial to a bit of online shopping. Well, ‘a bit’ is a bit of an understatement… I online shop almost every day. Now if we can just overlook that I perhaps have a little addiction going on here, and focus on something that is making that addiction all the more intense.. La Redoute’s new app (available on iPhone and Android). I AM HOOKED! I have mentioned La Redoute countless times on here now, they have an incredible selection online, and their new app makes it so much easier to browse their huge online catalogue. So, I have been using it none stop, and I wanted to share some of my favourite features with you. Whether you're chilling at home searching for new pieces, on your commute trying to pass the time, or catching a cheeky half hour coffee stop on a busy day, the app is perfect to use in all situations.
Firstly… the endless browse feature. I lost a Sunday evening to this, and have no regrets. The homepage of the app very very kindly brings up a selection of items that might take your fancy. And it gets it right! So, it’s a great starting point, and a great taster of what they have available online, but I didn’t like to stop there. Through the search feature, the categories, the designers they have, the app makes it way easier to browse through all of these and jump from one category to the next. You can add to your wish list as you go, or just go for it and pop it all in your basket!
Ok so now lets move onto the slightly busier days, which is where the homepage I just mentioned really comes in handy. I promise you the app will show you something you like as soon as you open it. While shooting this post I opened up the app so many times, and got distracted by something I liked every single time (I mean, just look at this coat!). But, even better, once you click on one of the items, it will also bring up more selections that are similar or would work well with the item. It really is devilish when it comes to tempting you, but if you need to quickly find an outfit to order this is a great way to do it.
It's all well and good having a browse online, but the real satisfaction of online shopping comes from actually ordering the pieces, then waiting for the postman throughout the week! The app makes it quick and easy, a perfect for on the go too. Once you've got your basket around the £59382 mark with approx 600 items in there, and once you've decided the bank won't give you a loan for it so you better cut it down, and once you've gone through the torturous decision of deciding which pieces don't make the cut (even though you need them all), you should now be ready to click the remaining items home!
It's super easy peasy to check out, and there is the option for Click and Collect which is PERFECT if, like me, you are on a constant game of cat and mouse with the post man. Essentially, La Redoute have created an seamless online shopping experience from beginning to end. And I can't get through this post without discussing this outfit WHICH I LOVE!! This blazer has literally been made for me (that's what I am telling myself anyway), and is just everything I could wish for from a blazer. And the jeans, you need them guys, they fit me so so well and I love the frayed hems so much!
So a huge thank you to La Redoute for working with me on this post. You can download their app here on IOS and here on Android, if there is anything that has taken your fancy in this post then give the app a go and order through that rather than online. And I am sorry for encouraging any other shopping addicts with this one!
I also made a little video all about using the app which you guys can watch here:
