I've been stuck in a bit of a shopping rut since my trip to America last month. The great British highstreet is great and all but it just doesn't compare to cheaper designer brands and amazing vintage selections. "Gok's Roadshow for Less" where he tries and finds outfits for under £50 in Asda and Primark is really not helping matters either (and I LOVE a bit of Primarni). It kinda makes me want to commit fashion suicide...
So when I come across sites like Coggles, they put a smile back on my face =)
I actually knew about Coggles before but attending their press preview this week reminded me why I love it so much. This site has pretty much EVERYTHING you could ever want. Cool designer brands such as McQ, Sam Elderman and Comme Des Garcons as well as vintage and even books. There's also a bike section coming soon, but my favourite part has to be the interior design section. Im in love with their snazzy pillows and wallpaper.
The fact that they also have a sweet style section is a cheeky bonus. Its not just a site, its a brand, it's a life style. "It's about the clothes you choose to wear, the bike you ride to work, the book you read in bed, you favourite chair at home, the world you design to live in."
It puts the fun back into shopping knowing that you're buying an investment and not a piece that every other Tom, Dick and Harry will own. Something that you will keep in your wardrobe for years to come and not a catwalk rip off made by some poor 10 year old child in India, that you're going to throw away in a months time. I know the economy sucks right now but Gok Wan take note.
