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?
