For someone who has a lot of clothes, I actually find shopping quite tedious. Especially when I’m looking for something specific. There’s nothing worse than having to trawl through lots of different websites trying to find that perfect item of clothing. I was recently introduced to a site called Octer, which aims to make the experience a little easier. Octer is a shopping site which includes items from hundreds of different online and high street retailers. It’s a great tool if you want to search lots of different shops for one item.
As someone who doesn’t shop on the high street that often, I have very specific tastes, so it was a really quick way to find something that would work with the rest of my wardrobe. I’m a bit obsessed with skirts at the moment, so that was the first thing I looked for on the Octer site. I was able to specify my price range and them browsed through until I spotted something I loved. It wasn’t long before I spotted this gorgeous pencil print skirt from Cath Kidston and I knew it was the one.
I really enjoyed being able to look through so many different options and I discovered a few brands that I wouldn’t otherwise have thought to look at. The site is so easy to use and once you’ve found the item you want, it takes you through to the retailers website so you can purchase the item. I’m going to a ball later in the year and I need a dress to wear and I’ve already used Octer to scout out a few options.
The site doesn’t just cover women’s clothing it also has mens and children’s wear as well as beauty products, technology and interior items listed, so it’s a great one stop shop for everything you need. It’s the closest thing you’ll get to an online department store. I’d really recommend giving it a go, if like me you want to save time on shopping. Find out more on the Octer website.
I wore my new skirt with a top from Collectif, a vintage Enid Collins bag and Miss L Fire shoes.
*Thank you to Octor for paying for my skirt, all opinions as always are my own.
