Shop the Look

I'm very excited to see "shop the look" widgets appearing in magazines and on blogs like Not Dressed Like Lamb.

The reason is I am driven to distraction when I see clothes in a magazine and I can't buy them!

The dress on the left, from Coast, is a good example.  It was featured in a magazine; I checked out the website and there it is, prominent on the home page and in their High Summer 13 Look Book. But can you buy it? No.  Entering its name, "Steren" yields a frosty Not Found. Ye Gods, why can't they acknowledge that maybe this dress isn't available yet, and take your email address to let you know when it is?

Another disappointment recently was a cream and green floral/leaf print dress that featured in an article in The Times magazine about girls and their proms. The dress was from Asos, but their site didn't have it and hasn't had it, despite my daily checks.

Meanwhile a floral peplum skirt from M&S was shown in several magazines, and I wanted it.  But now it has finally landed, I've gone off the boil.
