6 Things Smart Shoppers Do When Shopping for Clothes Online

6 Things Smart Shoppers Do When Shopping for Clothes Online

These days, it’s just so convenient to go to an online shop to go through its catalog and check out with all the items you love. As easy as it seems, you shouldn’t be careless about shopping online, especially when you’re buying clothes. When you buy clothes or shoes online, you can’t try them on first and you can’t be sure about the quality of the products because you can’t physically see or touch them. Here we’ve got some tips for you to shop smart online.

1. Get Accurate Measurements for Your Body (And Keep Them Updated!)

You really need proper measurements of your body before you buy any clothes or shoes online. Make sure you’re measuring your body parts correctly and jot down the measurements carefully. Some stores make use of centimetre while some use inch when indicating their size in sizing charts. Also, don’t forget to keep the measurements up to date! Look at the image below to correctly measure your body parts:

    2. Check the Sizing Charts of the Online Shops

    The small size in one retailer can be different from the small size in another retailer. Even in the same online shop, it can consist of a number of retailers selling clothes, so make sure you match your measurements with the corresponding sizes by checking the sizing charts accordingly.

    3. Choose an Online Shop that Monitors Products Quality

    When you buy anything, for sure you don’t want to buy any low quality products, or even fake products. Therefore, choose a shop that has strict management on the vendors and products, for example, Sammydress.

    Sammydress has a strict management on the vendors, their products and even the photos they provide. If a vendor provides a substantially inferior product or photos which are different from the real product, it will be blacklisted and Sammydress will no longer conduct business with that factory. Sammydress has also instituted a 4-step process to eradicate potential infringement claims including supplied assessment, daily monitoring, and prevention and infringement identification.

    4. Check for Reasonable Pricing

    Some shops have pricy products claiming that it’s because their products are imported from overseas. But watch out here, imported goods are not always sold at high prices.

    Say Sammydress, it provides the exact information to factories based on the big data analysis and consumers’ required collection, so as to get better price from different vendors and sell clothes directly to international consumers who can afford the price.

    5. Make Sure Goods Delivery Is Reliable

    Some shops may not deliver their items to every part of the world, so you’d better check if ordering from your current location is possible. Also, you should make sure that the shop has a smooth and secured delivery process because you don’t want to be waiting forever for your product to arrive, or even never receiving the product you’ve ordered.

    Take Sammydress as an example, it have built long term partnerships with UPS, FedEx, DHL and other leading global carriers. Each product needs to be carefully checked and securely packed before shipping out. Sammydress also has warehouses and distribution hubs located in Asia, USA and Europe, ensuring responsiveness to the customers.

    6. Choose an Online Shop that Values Customers’ Needs

    Besides providing high quality products, a good online shop should never undermine customers’ needs. A responsible shop should be responsive to customers’ needs and concerns because a shopping experience is more than just the products, it’s also about the service.

    With a 24-hour live chat service and hotline for customers to solve their problems, Sammydress has built an example to be a responsible online shop.

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

    As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

    “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

    When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

    Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

    We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

    But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

    So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

    It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

    1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

    Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

    2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

    This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

    You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

    3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

    This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

    4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

    How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

    So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

    If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

    And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
