If you’re new to the world of online shopping (where have you been?) or, like me, a creature of habit when it comes to your e-commerce shopping choices, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone and try the fabulous Net-A-Porter! (What took me so long, right?!) The luxury online shopping destination, founded by Natalie Massenet in the late 90s, is an absolute joy to do business with.
I recently ordered these jeans after watching this video on Net-A-Porter’s blog, The Edit. While I was anxious to receive the jeans, I had no expectations about how quickly they would arrive or in what kind of packaging. I assumed (I know, never assume) that because my order included free shipping, I wouldn’t see it for at least a week. Imagine my surprise when the jeans turned up two days later! (And it gets better.)
When I opened the UPS cardboard box they came in, I found a little black pouch sitting atop black tissue paper. Inside the pouch I found the one essential that every woman needs to ensure the perfect fit in any garment—a tape measure and instructions on how to use it correctly.
Like being on a treasure hunt with a happy ending, beneath the pouch and tissue paper, I found a beautiful black box secured with a lovely grosgrain ribbon. Talk about presentation! I love the box almost as much as I love my new jeans!
Kudos to Net-A-Porter for getting it right. You’ve won a fan in me and I will definitely be visiting often. (Well, maybe not too often. :))
Am I the last to know about this amazing online shopping experience? Have you shopped with Net-A-Porter?
Outstanding presentation…. Exceeding expectations is not very common in the retail world today…
How cool! I agree with JL’s comment…this rarely happens in today’s world! Can’t wait to see those jeans!
As the saying goes, “It’s all in the presentation!” Glad you like the jeans so much too!
