We all love online shopping (I myself find the 'click and buy' a little too easy) but the downside to endless stores at your fingertips is the solo act of virtual shopping sprees.
Half the fun of shopping is asking your friends' opinions on a daring new dress or getting advice on what suits your shape. A new website, Mallzee, is tackling this problem by integrating Facebook chat, questions polls and 'online wardrobes' into the shopping experience.
As you can tell from the name, this new website is about having a personalised shopping mall. You answer a couple of questions and their ingenious software finds items matching your style and showcases them for you in your very own Mallzee.
As the owner of your Mallzee, you can invite friends to browse your wardrobe of purchases and if they buy anything, you earn money. No that wasn't a typo - you can actually make money by spending it.
With over 200 brands signed up to their website - from Boohoo to Urban Outfitters - why not buy your new Saturday night ensemble through Mallzee and earn some credit towards next Saturday's LBD?
However, if the looming Christmas spirit has you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, you can also donate the money you earn from your wardrobe to charity (I think this is my favourite part of their website).
Mallzee should be live soon and I will give you all a heads up when it is. Until then... let's go to the Mallzee!
Next, the high street home of the smart casual attire, is turning 30 this year. To celebrate this milestone, Next have created an interactive timeline on their Facebook account that charts the store's history.
If you're a sad fashionista like myself, you'll love the timeline - especially as it shows the development of timeless pieces such as suits, denims and wedges over the past 30 years. Who knew I could be so interested in the 80s??
Next is an iconic British high street brand and is one of the very few places that both myself and my mum can happily shop at, which is no small feat by any means! To celebrate (and say thanks) I have chosen my three favourite pieces that are currently in store for you.
Coulda... bought a pair of retro oversized sunglasses from Matalan this month for the bargain price of a fiver. However, unlike the majority of people I know I'm not going on a sun holiday this year so I may as well save my money!
Woulda... bankrupted myself for this Emilio Pucci silk crepe maxi skirt had I not had any sense. Unfortunately the £825.00 price tag brought me back to my senses, no matter how beautiful this purple number may be.
Shoulda... been sensible and invested for my future job. Hopefully I have a few job interviews coming up so should buy an outfit to impress. With my bank balance being so pathetic at the minute, this £16 ponte dress from George at Asda is perfect.
