“Confessions of an Online Shopping Addict”

Welcome to my first ever Blog post, thanks for dropping by! If you’re familiar with my Instagram feed, you’ll be aware of my addiction to shopping! If this is our first meeting, “Hello, my name is Toni and I am an online shopping addict”…

I am also obsessed with bargain hunting, so my blog will focus on where to get the best fashion finds for under $200. With this budget in mind, shopping online is often the way to go, as prices are extremely competitive compared with ‘bricks and mortar’ stores. However, I find the shopping ‘experience’ very different online and I’m quite old-fashioned in the sense that I like having a human being to talk to and help me out with my purchase… So here’s the trade-off: better value for money online, but a more impersonal shopping experience…

Enter; this is by far my fave online store… My first item was the Finders Keepers ‘Living Daylights’ blazer, with its paint splatter print, silky fabric and cut-out back detail – I was hooked! I was drawn to the select range of items that were “so me!” and their prices were the best I could find online – bonus! I then got to know the Owner/Director of Runway Scout, Susan Jacob, via Instagram… Her customer service is second-to-none when it comes to online stores… She replies to every email, Facebook & Instagram post and whenever you order, you also receive a thoughtful, personal & hand-written card to say thank you for your purchase! So sweet! This must take a lot of time and effort on Susan’s part, but really does set Runway Scout apart from the rest… This is why online stores like Runway Scout have such a loyal customer base – good old-fashioned customer service, teeny-tiny prices and the luxury of shopping on your laptop, from the comfort of your couch, in your trackies… Bliss!

Remember, you’ll also receive free express shipping on orders over $49 – and believe me; it’s not that hard to spend more than that! I want one of everything!!! Be sure to sign up to their VIP Newsletter for the latest sale offers, VIP discount codes & stock updates too…

Here are some of my top picks from… Including a sneak peek of the brand new Finders Keepers ‘All Stars’ collection, in stock later this week at

 Happy Shopping! Toni X
