When I am looking for something new and exciting to write about, I always hit Net-A-Porter first! Launched in June 2000, this award-winning website is famous for their huge selection of luxury brands and excellent customer service. Presented in the style of a fashion magazine, shoppers can browse merchandise from the most coveted designers. Each item’s description comes complete with multiple pictures, showing every possible angle. Net-A-Porter even uses live models to show how items look when they are part of an outfit. They really do provide the ultimate online shopping experience. That is why I am picking Net-A-Porter as my favorite boutique for 2012!
When it comes to handbags, Net-A-Porter has everything from iconic pieces to less well-known designers. For example, Net-A-Porter always has classics from Yves Saint Laurent on hand. Personally, I love the Cabas Chyc Leather Tote. It is a great structured piece, perfect for the sophisticated gal. But Net-A-Porter also carries items from designers that some people may not know much about. Olympia Le-Tan, for example, makes its way to their virtual shelves on a regular basis. The most recent is the Lady Chatterley’s Lover Embroidered Book Clutch. It is such a fun piece and a great conversation starter! However, if you want to get your hands on one of these clutches, you have to act fast. Olympia Le-Tan is less well-known, but her devoted followers will snap up her clutches shortly after Net-A-Porter gets them in stock.
