Are Bedrooms The New Fitting Rooms?

I recently came across these stunning images over at Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles of Suzanne Kasler's glamorous bedroom.  The unabashedly feminine and fashionable style of this room, right down to the framed fashion show invites, brought to mind an ongoing conversation that I've been having with some of my friends about how our own bedrooms are becoming the new fitting rooms. Essentially, in our over scheduled lives, it's hard to deny the convenience of online shopping, especially for clothes.  The consensus within our group was that the majority of us prefer to shop on the internet for fashion. In fact, the only friends that were not really on board with this concept yet, were the ones that live in New York City...given their proximity to so many amazing stores, it's easy to see why.

But for someone like me, who lives in a very rural town (albeit an hour north of Manhattan, but trust me it's crazy small) sites like Net-a-Porter, Nordstrom, Shopbop and Saks.com have been literal life savers.  Maybe I'm a bit biased towards the online world (as a blogger and a small e-shop owner) but it's gotten to the point that I prefer to try on clothes in my own home, with my own accessories at hand. Especially if I'm shopping for a big event or in my immediate case, an upcoming holiday party.  I know that I can order up a selection of outfits (like this chic LBD and this jumpsuit, both en route to me right now) in minutes (as opposed to hours) they'll be delivered in days and if they don't fit, that free shipping return label insures it goes right back. 

What do you think, are our own bedrooms the new fitting rooms? Even if you have no opinion on this pressing matter, the rest of Suzanne's stunning bedroom is worth checking out~

  1. HI Sue, I adore Suzanne's master bedroom! That icy blue color is now a favorite. Her book is one of the best to add to anyone's collection.

  2. beautiful home! My problem with online shopping is the fit and the returns....I have ordered quite a few things that look spectacular on the model and when I try i on it's just not the same. Or the size isn't right. Also, I ave been surprised at quality many times.....If I had seen the piece in person and touched I would have never bought it because maybe the fabric looks cheap or who knows! And I hate repackaging and returning. I'm still doing it...I just really think twice about it. So different for things for the home or accessories.....

    1. Such a good point about the quality and fit...I tend to stick with tried and true labels to avoid those things, but given that we are shipping out to the Post Office most days here, returns are a lot easier for me:) Currently have two on my desk actually!

  3. Love this story. It's so true about being a country bumpkin.

  4. Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles ALWAYS knocks it out of the park. Love their publication. I'm gravitating towards online as well. Denver is also not a shopping mecca not to mention a recent personal shopping session at Nordstrom pushed me over the edge. I'm not good at saying no to the overly pushy sales person!

  7. What a beautiful space! I never get as much joy out of online shopping when it comes to clothes. I need to try things on, touch them etc. There are always those items that look terrible on the hanger but great on the body. You just never know.
