H&M, the European fast fashion chain, has finally opens an online store it had delayed several times before. While other H&M markets around the world had an online store to shop from, shoppers here in America were beginning to get frustrated. Now you can shop H&M’s women’s, men’s, plus size, and kid’s lines, as well as the new home collection. Now shopper’s can breathe a sigh of relief. The new webstore has opened just in time, because the new Isabel Marant designer collaboration collection will be hitting H&M stores soon. Photo from H&M.
My friends at Obvilux have once again refined the online shopping experience with StyleSays. StyleSays is a website that lets you shop and talk about your purchases with others. You can give or get recommendations for certain items that you or others are interested in. You will also be notified when the price drops on any item you have saved. One of the best features of the website is the Facebook page, where I am an admin. You can find all kinds of shopping deals there. Click here to get and invite, and then go and like StyleSays on Facebook. If you hurry up and invite three of your friends, you will have a chance at winning a pair of designer Yotam Solomon’s flats or heels.The winner will be announced on 9-15-2011.
Zara has finally set a date for their first American e-commerce site. The Spain based fast fashion chain will start selling clothes online to US shoppers on September 7th, the day before New York Fashion Week starts. I can’t believe that is a little more than a month away. I am too excited for this.
Earlier in the week, fast fashion chain H&M also revealed via Twitter that it too was going to open their online shop fro Americans, but they only revealed that it would be in early 2012. First they told us fall of 2011, now early 2012. They need to get on the ball and hurry up! Photo from Zara.
Obvilux, which is short for obvious luxuries, is a new online shopping/social media site launching today that aims to connect shoppers and brands. All you have to do is share with your friends, via Obvilux, all the cool things you found while online shopping. I am extremely interested in this site because it helps you track your shopping behavior so you and your friends can see your personal trends. My favorite thing about Obvilux is that you can become a store ambassador one you submit a certain amount of items from a store. Join Obvilux today. Thoughts?
According to Obvilux:
Our goal is to connect brands with the shoppers who love them most and help
them receive free merchandise and promotional goods. The main people we
are trying to help are just like your readers. They follow your stories
and advice because you have great taste, which is much better for them
than trying to find great clothing and products on their own.
I love Mango and their summer 2011 essentials. I think it is an awesome store. Well if you are someone like me, who doesn’t live near a Mango store, your love for Mango can be a problem. Unlike Zara and H&M, who are both slow to the whole online shopping thing, Mango has had an online store for years. I don’t have to travel to some mall or city hours away to get my Mango fix, and you don’t have to either. Aren’t we lucky?
When I look at these summer 2011 essentials, I am seriously digging both the oxford flats and heels, and the brown handbag near them. For some reason, I have been incorporating brown in a few of my outfits lately. Those accessories would help me out this summer. What are your favorite items?
OMG!!! H&M will open a US webstore at the end of 2011. I can’t wait. What does this mean for those of you who, like myself, live hours away from the nearest H&M? Well… it means empty wallets. I wonder if we will be able to buy the designer collaborations online. That would be amazing because the nearest H&M is three hours away from me. I wish they would get online sooner.

My dad will tell you that I spend too much time and money shopping online. I only do it because I get better deals, plus I have cooled off for a little bit now. I don’t shop online as much as I used too, but I am getting that itch again. One of my favorite online shops, especially for deals and steals, is ASOS. They are one of the best because they ship to the US, convert currency on the website so you know how much it cost in dollars before you buy, and they have great clothes. This clown car shirt isn’t so great. I mean its got tiny pleats and polka-dots. The model tried with all her might to make it look not so clown like, but then they had to go and add a bowler hat which looks good with everything except clown attire.
