Farfetch App Review And £400 Voucher Giveaway

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to celebrating New Year’s Eve.

This year was a bit intense for me — full of many changes and great accomplishments. As I’ve mentioned earlier in my blog posts, I work in fine jewelry industry and I enjoy every moment of it. Every day is different and there is always so much to learn! I hope that you, too, are ending a satisfying year and starting to create 2016 goals.

I have exciting news to share!

Farfetch.com , international fashion website, recently contacted me to review their Farfetch Discover app.

The app takes online shopping experience to the next level by showcasing over 300 carefully selected boutiques.

All boutiques are located everywhere from Tokyo, New York and London to Catania, New Orleans and Buharest, but united in one online shopping destination.

I’ve just discovered Dolci Trame, a hidden gem in the heart of renaissance city, Siena. I adore its wide selection of incredible designers such as Phillip Lim, Clizia Ornato, Akris and Ann Demeulemeester.

I particularly like the ‘search’ tab that allows you to filter your shopping experience by using key words. More importantly, the tab saves the previously searched words:

Also, the list of famous and emerging international designers is incredible. Whether you are big fan of Martin Margiela or Haute Hippie, the online boutique will satisfy the most exquisite taste. Notably, some boutiques offers vintage, one-of-a-kind pieces.

Finally, the app has an “Add To Wish List” button that allows you to save your favourite items.

My wish list features capes, maxi dresses and knee-high boots. I especially can’t stop thinking about Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Carnaby’ boots:

Leather jacket.
