My love (addiction) for online shopping - or for that matter all types of shopping- may not be much of a secret anymore but I always shop within my budget and am lucky enough to be involved in a few blogger programmes with various companies who credit me with items for review and consideration. (All my own choice of course!)
Nearly all of the clothing web-stores I shop on though are either UK based, US based or Chinese/Korean. I haven't really come across any Irish webstores that caught my eye or interested me enough to take a look and go as far as purchasing from. Now don't get me wrong, I shop A LOT in Irish stores in person, just not online.
Recently, thanks to a few other Irish blogs, I was made aware of iClothing.ie, a Dublin based online clothing sales company that also sell footwear & jewelry etc. It didn't take me long to become impressed by the variety and selection of items available from them but I am also very impressed by the prices! Think along the same general pricing as Newlook or even Penneys. There are tonnes of affordable bits for grabs and of course being Irish, the delivery is a dream :)
The standard delivery within the Republic is €4.00 for 1-3 working days, but for a measly €1.00 extra, at €5.00 you can get next day delivery as long as the order is submitted before 5pm. If you are in the Capital, you have the option of same day & Saturday delivery for a couple extra Euros.
Since I signed up with them a few weeks back when I first discovered them, I receive promotional e-mails, and today's one broke me.... I had considered other promotional offers before and not followed up on them but today was different, today I got paid :)
So I submitted my very first iClothing order!
I went for this gorgeous beige/cream dress that has been reduced from €39.00 down to only €18.00, available in Sizes 8, 10, 12 & 14.
(Though I seem to have nabbed the last size 8 as it's now coming up as out of stock!)
I have a feeling I may bring up the hem on the dress a tad as the model is 5ft 9" and has almost 6 inches on my stumpy frame, but we'll have to wait and see!
I also went for this gorgeous pair of studded boots which are available in sizes 3/36 up to a 8/41 and cost only €24.00 down from the original price of €54.00, which is a bargain!
(again I seem to have nabbed the last size 4/37 as it's now coming up as out of stock!)
Perfect for the coming season which I think is worth pointing out, begins this coming Sunday!
Not only are those prices awesome though, the website has a promotion running until Midnight Sunday 1st September, where you can get 10% off of your order, including sale items, by using the code "AUTUMN" at checkout!
I'm looking forward to getting my items and seeing what the quality is like and lucky for me I won't have to wait long!
Will share my thoughts on the dress and boots with ye soon after I get them.
In the mean time,
