What they offer
Missguided are an online retailer that offer clothes, footwear, accessories (including their own range of beauty products) Not only are they way up there with the rest of the online shops but they offer their own blog too!! I was first drawn to this website after scouring all my magazines for new fresh retailers and I have not been disappointed, it may also be worth noting that Look magazine often have a discount code for the website exclusive to their readers so keep your eyes peeled!

About the website
The website has a very trendy girly image, I think it's more like a magazine/shopping website as opposed to just the sale of clothes. The bright colors and simple layouts make things very easy to use and also very appealing. I like the way you can put your clothes into the 'wishlist' and come back to them at a later date. They also have a newsletter that can be sent out to your email address with the latest trend alerts... mine comes through to my work email and it can sometimes be VERY hard to delete it without looking. The site is very easy to navigate around and has the following tabs: New In, Clothing, Footwear, Accessories , Trends and Blog.
The affordability of this website is brilliant, I would say it is around the same price as New Look however the clothes are much more on trend and they always offer something a little different. At the moment they have some lovely plain one shoulder dresses in for around £15.00 and they also offer 'copy' clothes for example at the moment Lanvin have a beautiful 'quirky face' top in their summer collection with a lovely £300 price tag. Missguided have a top very similar on the website for £13.99. Ever since I have used the website they have a 'Free super saver' deliver on orders over £35 which is great because I HATE paying for delivery!! They also offer 10% discount to all students with an NUS card. You can pay using Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Delta, Switch, Solo, & American Express.

I have used Missguided for a while now and I love the site, it is so easy to use and I don't think I have ever been on it without wanting to buy something. They have quite a fast stock changeover meaning there is always something new tempting you to make a purchase. I think if I was to compare the clothing to something on our high street I would say that it is very similar to ARK clothing and there have been a few times I have noticed the same products being sold between the stores. I do like the fact though that a lot of the clothes are not in shops on the high street at all and are exclusive meaning that you are not walking around with the same top on as everyone else - there's nothing worse than walking into a club and seeing three other girls in the same dress! The clothes are always on trend and they even have a blog to show you how to wear the clothing, what the celebrities are wearing and other fashion gossip/tips.
The last items I bought were two dresses, as with any other website shopping online is a bit of a gamble... you never know what your going to get! I wanted a dress to wear for my Saturday night out and ordering it on a Thursday I was slightly dubious but there was no need to be, my items were delivered to my door on the Friday afternoon!! The first dress was lovely - great quality, as shown in the photo, same colour, same cut etc. and only £15.00 - if I had walked into Topshop and seen this dress I would have expected to pay around £45.00 so it is a great saving if you don't mind the gamble! The second dress I bought looked nothing like the photo - The colour looked completely different and there seemed to be some little diamantes on it that I had not noticed on the photo. The up side to this is all I had to do was turn the bag inside out, stick the return label on the front, take it to the post office, send... and I received an email to say my money would be sent back. Now this all happened over bank holiday so I have not yet been credited with the money however I can see that it is due to come in on my online account.
The returns policy is very easy to follow and can be found under the HELP section of their website.
I find the whole experience with Missguided hassle free just as they intended, I will certainly keep shopping at the website and I would recommend it to anyone with a similar dress sense to myself.
you can also follow them on twitter, facebook, iphone app or their very own blog
