There is a close analogy between a website that sells woman’s clothing and a store at the mall that also sells woman’s clothing, here referred to as an online store. One of the differences between a retail store and an online store is that while the store has limited hours of operation, an online store is open twenty four hours a day and seven days a week. One similarity between an online store and a retail store is that a shopper gets to puts his or her merchandise in a shopping bag before checking out or before paying for the merchandise. Finally, one other difference between a retail store and an online store is that a retail store offers a shopper more options of payment while an online store requires a payment by a credit card only.
Although there are several advantages to buying women’s clothing online, there are also a few drawbacks. For example, an online female shopper who is looking for fashionable female clothing is not able to try the clothing on. There is one particular website I am thinking of and this website’s address is net-a-porter.com. This is a website that features women’s jeans. This website displays different kinds of expensive jeans in various colors and styles. There is plenty to choose from for someone with a decent budget. Also, the pictures of these jeans are clear and distinct. However, one major disadvantage of this website is that it does not feature real time models. An online female shopper who is about to spend a pretty buck on these jeans would surely like to see how these jeans look on a female frame. In my opinion, this website could be improved if real time models were displayed modeling these jeans. A female shopper who has the kind of money to buy these expensive jeans would not want to throw her money away if upon receiving the jeans they would not fit properly.
