Designer Accessories and Gifts and Plus Size Clothing are new in Latest Reviews at thesiteguide.com
Sometimes I’m writing about outdoor clothing, or furniture, or travel websites. They’re all interesting, particularly from a design viewpoint, as so often online retailer don’t realise that without great usability they’ll have a problem getting their products to sell. You know how quickly you move on if you land on a site you don’t love immediately. It’s not just you, we all do. This time it is just fashion, if ‘just’ is the right word. And these two are now to be found in Latest Website Reviews at www.thesiteguide.com.
The first of the new websites is La Maison Couture, offering luxurious and sometimes quirky products on a smart black based website including covetable Laduree and The Bake Boutique candles, Milli Millu designer handbags, Stephen Webster’s chic star sign pendants and Mona di Orio fragrance.
This is somewhere to browse and shop if you’re looking for something very special, as a gift or a treat for yourself. A handpicked collection of unique items all brought together under one unusual online roof it’s well worth spending some time visiting.
The second website in Latest Website Reviews is Box2, who you also probably won’t have heard of, where you’ll find a high quality collection of plus size fashion including evening and occasion jackets, dresses, accessories and excellent knitwear.
This popular collection goes from size 14 to 34, and as this is specially designed for larger sizes it’s much more flattering and wearable than many other plus size clothes you’ll find out there. Not only that, this is a unique range only available through Box2. They also have two shops, one in Kings Langley and the other in West Wimbledon.
Off to Paris to work on Wednesday and doubtless there’ll be time to check out the shops – there always has to be, including my two favourites Laduree and Sephora. Somehow fashion shopping in Paris can be off-putting. Walking into a famous designer boutique (just looking, you understand) a few months ago a snooty assistant asked me what size I was.
