The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky.
Imagine this: you’re cozy by a fire with a nice blanket, a cup of tea or maybe even a cup of alcohol. It’s snowing outside and you can see the faintest flicker of lights in the distance. You’re currently living in a holiday card. What’s the only thing that could make this all better? Shopping. Thanks to the new fangled interwebs, that is an easily achievable reality. It’s just one of the many reasons we prefer e-commerce to the whole, putting on clothes, leaving the house and talking to people kind of shopping. Still not convinced? Our editors and their iron logic might just sway you.
“Can’t do enough online shopping! No pesty sales people and its so much fun to get presents delivered to my door.” -Samantha Trenk, Sr. Public Relations Director
“I am a compulsive online shopper. Anywhere I have ever lived my doormen always make fun of my for how many packages I get every single day, its always like Christmas! . Not to mention since everything comes to your home you can fully style to see how you would really wear it rather than having to stand on your tippy toes in a dressing room!” -Lisa Goldstein, Fashion Market Assistant
“If you go to Madewell without any pants (or skirt) on, you might be arrested for indecent exposure. But you can browse Madewell.com all the live-long day while letting it all hang out, and nobody will ever be the wiser! I’m obviously speaking hypothetically, just so we’re clear.” -Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
“Online shopping wins because I can do it in my pajamas while I watch The Voice! Plus something about clicking buy never feels as serious as swiping a credit card. (Thank god for sites with free returns.)” -Lauren Edelstein, Stylist
“The best part of ordering stuff online: the packages! It’s like receiving a present every time an order shows up at your door.” -Jenna Gottlieb, Features Writer
“Being able to quickly shop by size is why I love shopping online. The worst part of shopping in stores is when you spend your whole day going in and out of shops that are either sold out of or don’t carry your size. That, and I hate trying on clothes in store dressing rooms – so many bodies have been in there!” -Stephanie Kornblum, Public Relations Coordinator
“Online is so much better. If you have ever shacked up with someone who things you do too much shopping, you need to online shop. You can surreptitiously enlist the help of the UPS person and the doorman to help hide your goodies until you can bring them inside. When you shop in-store, you have to come straight home with your bags and take your licks.” -Denise Burrell-Stinson, Research Chief
