I’m a big shopper. One of my favourite things to do is grab a coffee and wander around department stores for a touch of inspiration, with no concrete intention of actually buying anything. But typically as soon as I want something specific (a yellow dress, black pumps, a nude clutch…) I can’t find it for love nor money. I’ve wasted so much time marching up and down Oxford Street in the hunt for that perfect outfit, only to give up and spend the evening surfing ASOS instead. The reason I love platforms like ASOS so much is that you can filter down their portfolio to the exact thing you’re looking for: if I want a yellow dress, it’s a whole lot easier to find that yellow dress. If you’ve ever had the same dilemma in the run up to a special occasion when your shoes simply *must* match perfectly, then you need to know about my new favourite thing: Fashiola.
This fantastic NEW online fashion finder helps you to find that perfect fashion item 24/7; with 98 individual ‘shops’ (including Dune, Oasis, Adidas, Mango, Coast, and John Lewis,) over 1700 brands (Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Burberry,) and hundreds of thousands of items, if it’s available to buy then you’ll be able to find it. If you’re after a particualr item you can search by key words to bring up all the options available from the huge variety of brands, filtering by price and style until you find the perfect selection to choose from. If you want to shop by brand and see the whole range, simply click on their ‘shop’ to see the current discount codes and sale items available so you can grab a bargain. You can even save your search to your account for ease of use, or use the ‘sale alert’ button to be sent an email when your chosen piece has been reduced in price!
If you’re feeling creative, why not build your very own fashion outfit using the Fashiola ‘Stylebook‘ or share your top picks with friends via social media in one click? I’ve been playing around building my perfect summer outfits (a girl can dream about a two grand D&G dress right?!) and it’s given me lots of inspiration to not only re-organise my own wardrobe, but identified where I need to fill in the gaps to create the looks I want to go for. If you want even more, there’s a weekly newsletter for the latest news on new collections, offers and competitions, as well as entries from top UK guest bloggers that discuss the newest trends and hot pieces they’ve discovered. From the top ways to wear the sleeveless coat, to choosing the best swimwear for your body type, the site is full of useful fashion advice and breaking news – as well as a touch of celebrity style thrown in for good measure.
Like with every genius idea, it does make me wonder why nobody has thought of this before… A single platform that brings together all our favourite shops, allowing us to compare and contrast those potential birthday outfits without running from shop to shop. It’s a hellova lot easier to get a great deal and ensure you’ve nabbed exactly what you were after, or a way to get exposed to brands you would never have thought to go near – I’m surprised that Wallis and Very actually have some things I would consider buying! Moving into the next season I know this is going to be an absolute dream to use; I can never normally find the perfect black boots or loafers, but with Fashiola I’m certain my feet will be more than happy this Autumn.
