What Are We Doing Here?
Welcome to the first post from our new blog! As we get more and more busy, online shopping becomes not only a convenience, but a necessity. There was a time in my distant past where I would go shopping for fun with my friends. Now, two children later I’m lucky if I get a shower in before nap time, let alone any time to leisurely stroll through shops while sipping my latte and laughing with friends. If for nothing else, I owe my delivery person the biggest holiday hug for hefting the 40lb bag of dog food up to my front steps every month. I literally buy everything online because… children. If you haven’t tried shopping with children, don’t.
But so much is lost when you forego the fitting room. Customer reviews, star charts, and one click buying cannot make up for the void there is between an image on a screen and the reality of an item. That’s where East Coast Inspired comes in. We are taking it upon ourselves to try it all so you don’t have to. We will scour the internet to bring you the best of the best, we’ll help you style it, and we’ll provide you with reviews so when the time comes for you to treat yourself to some self care, you get it right the first time. Seriously, what’s the difference between the J.Crew Factory City Coat for $137 and the J.Crew Cocoon Coat for $350? Color aside, they look exactly the same online! Stick with us, and you’ll find out. We will do our best to accurately represent each item we review and help clarify sizing along the way. Help us help you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We love hearing from you! Is there something you’ve been eying? Let us know! We may have tried it even if you don’t see a review. We’d be happy to share any information we have to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Amanda and I are thrilled that you are along for the ride as we explore all that the internet has to offer. Thanks for reading!
