A bit of shopping online….
Anyone who knows me will tell you how unfashionable I am. Actually unfashionable is probably a bit harsh, more like – I’m “relaxed” about my clothes. I like comfort but that doesn’t mean tracksuits and trainers (when I’m playing sport only) In the past, I have selected clothing just because it was comfortable and the colours went together, no major thought went into an outfit and I’ve not really cared about the overall look.
However in the last few months I have become almost the complete opposite. With the help of my wife, I have taken certainly more care and definitely more effort into the clothes that I wear. When my birthday passed this year, I shocked everyone when I said I wanted to change my wardrobe and currently I am being classed as a shopaholic if we visit any shops.
When Zalando offered me the chance to use a gift voucher on their website I was keen to put my new found clothing love to the test. Now that I am working in the city, my old work shoes needed a revamp (and they were quite frankly embarrassing) so I was on the look out for some classic but stylish shoes, suitable for work & the usual events you have to be suited up for. They had to be black, but that was the only specification. There was a massive selection of brogues, it was actually quite hard to narrow it down to just a few. Like the wife, I seem to have a thing for shoes.
I have also recently started wearing slim chinos instead of my horrendous baggy jeans (yes I quote Katie on that), but I didn’t have many tops to go with them, my normal uniform of baggy t-shirts didn’t quite cut it, so I wanted to look at the shirts & sweatshirts, and I was really impressed with how much there was to choose from. It’s actually a lot easier for me to shop online, I can just pick which department I want to look at and everything is there in front of me, no fussing around shops looking for something in particular, getting sidetracked by a million other things.
The whole experience was pain free (always a plus) easy to find my size, select and order. The postage was really quick as well, I think it was under a week. So all in all I was pretty happy & will definitely be using them again for future purchases.
