Maintaining a fashion blog during the pandemic is a challenging task to accomplish. I was deprived of any opportunity to visit shopping malls or outlets. Basically, the ideas and plans that I kept in mind never got a chance to be implemented into real life. However, online shopping seemed to be a good alternative for desperate shopaholics, including myself. In my previous post I mentioned some brands that provide good customer service, no matter what.
Today is a new chapter because shopping malls are officially opened!
Yes, it happened, I went to the Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre this morning. Would it be weird if I said that I forgot that feeling of just walking around with hangers in my hands? It sounds tricky but I really missed these times. Of course, you need to follow some simple rules like staying in a line and sanitizing your hands before going inside the store. One thing that I liked was seeing people complying with regulations and respecting each other.
Now, let’s move to the most important part — actual shopping. I can honestly, say that my expectations were set a little too high. It’s been a long time since I have shopped conventionally. It’s like having a cheat meal after a long diet. While at Vaughn Mills I got tired of waiting in lines and not having access to fitting rooms. As a result, the only difference I’ve noticed between real and online shopping is that you don’t need to wait for a delivery.
To be honest, I recommend visiting the shopping mall only if you really miss this experience and tired of deliveries. Otherwise, online shopping is pretty much the same.
