A Little Guide to the Best Online Shopping Sites

Hello dear readers,
in this post i am going to talk about some of the best online shopping sites i have had the chance to try during the last years.
I really like online shopping since it offers me the possibility to get things that are not available in my country for good prices or just try new brands. I have developed a little list of my favorites and here there are the little reviews of my favorite sites.



pros:
-Worldwide free and fast shipping (trough courier) / spedizioni in tutto il mondo, veloci e gratis 
-All year long sales / saldi tutto l'anno 
-Different Body types options: Curvy,Petite,Maternity / abbigliamento per diversi tipo di corpo: plus size, piccoline, maternità
-Different payments options/ diversi metodi di pagamento 
-Designer and Famous Brand itmes / marchi famosi e griffe 
-Huge price range (from super cheap to quite expensive) / grandissima varietà di prezzi 
-Easy returns / resitutzioni facili
-Many brands are worldwide famous even if they cost more in your country / molti marchi qui costano meno dei negozio dei proprio paesi
- Women and Men section / sezioni uomo e donna
-A Market place where you can sell your items or buy items from very little brands is available / possibilità di comprare o vendere proprie creazioni nella sezione mercatino
-Many different categories of items: cloths, jewelry,shoes,Beauty,Lingerie,accessories.../ diverse categorie di prodotti: abbigliamento, gioielli, bellezza, intimo, accessori
-Huge variety of style options / grande varietà di stili 

Cons:
-Very fast selling : don't fall in love too easily since items get sold out very easily /le cose molte volte terminano velocemente ( soprattutto con i saldi ) 
-Always check patiently: the site has so many items that sometimes you can get lost very easily / controlla bene il sito con pazienza perchè è molto ampio 
-Check your sizes very good / controlla bene le taglie 

Asos is my absolutely favorite site, i always find myself browsing it and falling with new things every time. / Questo è decisamente uno dei mei siti preferiti. Lo visito molto spesso.



pros:
-Price range (from 1 to 30€ ) / varietà di prezzi tra 1 e 30-40€
-Always sales / saldi tutto l'anno
-Huge accessory selection / grandissima selezione di accessori
-Different Style options (sporty, casual, party, elegant...)/stili differenti  ( sportivo, informale,elegante...)
-Different Body type options:Normal and Plus Size /taglie normali o plus size
-Big variety of Basics items / grande varietà di capi basici
-Beauty section (but be careful that the quality is not always the best, but yet quite acceptable for the price) / sezione prodotti di bellezza ( la qualità non è il massimo ma vale il prezzo pagato )
-Women , Men , Kids / sezione uomo, donna ,bambini
-Different Payments options / diversi metodi di pagamento
-The sizes are very good, not too big neither too small (similar to H&M) / taglie simili a quelle di H&M , nè troppo grandi nè troppo piccole
-Many categories of items:cloths,shoes,beauty, lingerie, accessories,jewelry /molte categorie di prodotti
-Good quality products / prodotti di buona qualità
- Always follows and provides you with the newest trends items / segue sempre le utlime mode e ti propone prodotti relative a queste

cons:
-6€ shipping cost (trough courier) / 6 € di spese di spedizione (corriere)
-Doesn't ship in all the countries (check the list of the countries it does ship)/non spedisce in tutti i paesi
-Some items are not returnable (always check it before purchasing)/ alcuni prodotti non possono essere restituiti
-Not everything you see in the site photos is available in the site/non tutto quello che vedete nelle foto pubblicitarie è disponibile

I like this site , i built all my jewelry collection on it with all his promotions and super cheap prices.One of the many reasons i like this site is that in Italy this shop is not available and i think it's such a pity because it has very nice things for young women and it always gives you very good options for the new trends./ Mi piace questo sito, ci ho costruito la mia collezioni di accessori/gioielli con prezzi molto convenienti.Il fatto che in Italia questo negozio non ci sia me lo fa apprezzare ancora di più.



pros:
-Super Cheap / super economico
-Carries different Brands / raccoglie diverse marche 
-Quite Big variety of Basic items/ grande varietà di capi basici 
-Different body categories: Normal and Plus size, Petite  / taglie normali o plus size 
- Women, Men and Teen sections / sezione: Uomo,Donna , Bambini (adolescenti)
-Many sizes / grande varietà di taglie
-Biggest variety of shoes with cheap prices/ grandissima selezione di scarpe a prezzi economici
-Many payment options / diversi metodi di pagamento
-quite good quality products / prodotti di qualità abbastanza buona
-Carries cloths, shoes , jewelry, accessories / Selezione di vestiti, scarpe, gioielli, accessori

cons:
-5€ shipping cost / spese si spedizione 5 €
-Ships with ugly black plastic bags / spedisce con delle bruttissime borse di plastica nera 
-Ships trough normal post office so if you order too many items you will need to go to the post office to get them / spedisce tramite posta quindi se il pacco è grande dovete andare alle poste a ritirarlo
-Quite slow shipping / spedizioni abbastanza lente
-Many products are out of stock but the photos are not removed quickly: so when you like an item and you click on it you sadly discover that it is out of stock since they haven't removed the photos yet. / di molti prodotti appare la foto ma poi dice che non sono disponibili poichè terminati
-Never Stocks back / ciò che finisce non viene rifornito

I really like this site ,because it offers so many nice products and for how cheap it is but i am not that happy for the shipping method and for the "out of stock problem". / Mi piace davvero questo sito , adoro la grande varietà di prodotti e i prezzi, ma non mi entusiasma il metodo di spedizione e il problema dei prodotti terminati.


  • MANGO OUTLET

pros:
-Carries all the old collections of Mango with at least 50% off/ tutte le vecchie collezioni scontate di minimo il 50% 
-Big variety of basics / grande varietà di capi basici 
-Good Sizes / taglie non troppo piccole 
-Carries: cloths, shoes, jewelry, accessories / offre: abbigliamento, scarpe, gioielli, accessori
-Men and Women section / sezioni Uomo e Donna

cons:
-It taxes every item you buy so at the price you see you need to add at least 20% of taxes / al prezzo di ogni articolo vanno aggiunte le tasse del minimo il 20%
-High Shipping costs  (trough courier) / spese di spedizione molto alte ( corriere) 


Now many famous shops are selling online too and they offer you to ship the things at the shop (for free) and you go and try them and then decide if to get them or not or to get all shipped at your house for a low price. 
Few of them are:
-Zara
-Mango
-Pimkie
-Bershka
-Stradivarius
-Promod
...


Other good sites that i haven't tried yet but i have heard good things are: 
-Zalando
-Spartoo
-Nelly
-Net a porter 
-Westrags
-Dorothy Perkins
-Boohoo
-Yoox
-Next Uk
