Online clothes shopping — do you totally love it or do you avoid it at all costs?
I have been in both camps at various points in my clothes-wearing life. There was a time when I refused to order any clothing item online for fear of crushing disappointment. The thought of trying to return my selections brought on more anxiety than thoughts of the dentist.
Alternatively, I wandered through a phase when I wouldn’t ever be caught in an actual store, handing over actual money. I’d just order up a storm, clear (and by that I mean pay off) that “virtual number” on my credit card statement at the end of the month, and hope for the best with my hauls.
Obviously, there are pros and cons for each of these shopping strategies. Yet the idea of sitting on my couch in my PJs and having any item I want basically shipped straight to my outstretched hands was enough to make me “risk it for the biscuit,” perhaps a little too often.
