Online shopping is the new black, with shopaholics all over the world rejoicing at the simplicity of buying their favourite items – with just the click of a button. RESCU brings you the best in new online boutiques, to ensure your shopping experience is always worthwhile.
One of RESCU’s favourite online shopping destinations is The Style Net, a directory perfect for finding your favourite designers and retailers, making it easier than ever to find exactly what you’re looking for. The site is very user friendly, with a designer search function and filters that allow the browser to receive selective results. All profiled stores in the directory ship to Australia with their shipping and return policies included in the profile, so you don’t waste any time. The best part is that it goes further than your average directory by including a Style Resources section and a list of recommended fashion blogs. What more would a shopaholic want?
The sites founder Brooke Sivendra said “I’m an inveterate online shopper, but I got sick of spending hours reading through all the return and shipping information on each site and also trying to find specific products online and that’s how the concept for The Style Net was born. I’ve personally made made contact with each store to clarify their shipping and return policies for Australia and to get updates about sales, specials etc. and each store is an experienced e-tailer, so they are all au fait with international shipping and returns. There are also various levels of filtering to help navigate through the different stores and / or products.”
RESCU loves The Style Net because it’s made online shopping simpler than it’s ever been before. Rather than tediously trolling through a ton of web pages, you can find an exciting range with exactly what you’re looking for, all in one place.
