House made of paper

A few weeks ago I discovered this great site, Fashion Confidential, and I was just wondering if any of you had heard of it before?

It sells designer clothing, through stores like Matches and Net-a-Porter, so you can easily browse a massive selection of clothes, shoes and bags. There is literally hundreds of designers to choose from, including Burberry, Balmain, Chloe, Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood to name but a few.

However what makes it different is that there's so much more than shopping. This site doesn't just sell, but it helps you find ideas and great bargains both on the web and on the high street. The boutique directory is full of old favourites, as well as great new stores, and the Bargain Hunter section is genius. It has details of all the best designer sample sales and a calendar showing all the dates. It also picks out the best individual items from websites like The Outnet, Matches Style Steals and Browns Labels for Less.

The Style Report section is essentially a blog of the site, full of beautiful photos and celebrity inspiration, I'm already addicted! Also one of the editorial features at the moment is an interview with the designers from Preen, which I loved reading, and there's also a little list of blogs I'm sure you'll love if you don't already know them!

However my favourite part of the website is definitely the new magazine. Although I love savouring a good issue of Vogue, I think online magazines, or e-zines, are the future and this one is great. It contains loads of catwalk photos, style tips, designer interviews and the hottest new pieces all linked to stores where you can buy them. This month's issue is packed full of great Christmas gifts and outfit ideas - if only I could afford some of it!

I hope you enjoyed this post - now click here to visit Fashion Confidential!
