Where do you shop for clothes online? I can't stand going shopping

I've just bought a suit from Hobbs and I've already bought a top, trousers and skirt from Monsoon but I don't know where else to go now and I cannot face actually going shopping, I hate it. So, I'm looking for:

wedges with closed toes, black
a couple of skirts, black
a couple of tops, can be colours
pos another suit, the Hobbs one is this one in black

Any links welcome. TIA.

Oooh, suit is lovely. I don't shop online much because sizes seem to vary so greatly, and I don't want to spend my life posting things back.

I don't enjoy shopping either, but have found using a personal shopper once in a while is a good solution. Why not try that?

Earlybird, I am going to do that once I've lost more weight and want to spend more but right now I need some basics to get me through the next 2 months, esp at work. I've just found some good stuff at Wallis.

WWW,dare I say it,but Boden.
I bloody hate shoppping too.

I am however going to go the personal shopper route when |I can sort out a whole days sans kids and dh to myself however.
It sounds like an excellent idea.

Um, the Boden site is down, I already tried there!

moondog Mon 29-May-06 09:04:57

Oh I'd never do it online.
How tedious would that be??
Catalogue,then dictate order to (very pleasant) call centre folk.
Done 'n dusted in 5 mins.

moondog Mon 29-May-06 09:14:48

i also quite like debenhams, although their website annoys me

moondog Mon 29-May-06 09:17:52

Oh we know you are one foxy chick with excellent taste np!

nailpolish Mon 29-May-06 09:22:13

Offshoot of French Connection.

MI, let's. Fenwick at Brent X or John Lewis anywhere? Pref somewhere with mini bottles of Champers like in The Apprentice.

Love this thread - can't beat shopping online when the kids are in bed instead of them following me around, hanging off me like limpets, saying 'Can we go hoooooooommmme yet?' in that whingey whiny voice.
