Have you ever bought something you saw on a blog? Even more specific, have you ever clicked on a link to an item a blogger is talking about and actually bought it? Why or why not?

One item I can think of that I actually saw on a blog, was this faun gray maxi skirt from Forever21. I’m so glad I actually bought it, because it’s one of my all time favorites. I don’t care how many other girls own it!

I usually don’t because I follow a lot of bloggers from other countries. But I like a few blogs from the UK that feature clothing and that way I can rely on their fit and quality etc.. So in that case, I’m definitely more inclined to do so. I’d rather just purchase it straight from the store, though. That way I don’t have to wait and I can try things on – not to mention I’m less likely to go crazy buying unnecessary items like I do online! But mainly I use blogs as inspiration.

I don’t know what the others are talking about. I’ve bought lots of clothes on-line including dresses. Its easy once you know the particular brand’s sizing.

I haven’t bought something via a link but I think I’ve bought things after seeing them on a blog. I’m absolutely positive I have, although I can’t think of any specific examples right now.

I’ve seen the Crown and Glory turbans around a lot lately and I’m strongly considering getting one of those. I’m also planning to buy an Omerica Organic plug for my wedding after seeing them on one of my favourite blogs.

Bloggers definitely inspire my purchases. I’ve bought maybe one specific item I’ve seen on a blogger, but I rarely buy new things!

Absolutely! I just bought these fabulous stained glass/mosaic leggings from romwe, they are my favorite!! I think seeing how good someone else looks in something, or how they can wear it in ways that I would have never thought of inspires me a lot:))

I never buy directly from a blog since I hate compulsive shopping, but I do bookmark stores and then come back ready on when I feel like buying something new

Great question.

I haven’t personally although when I see it enough (on several bloggers) there is this subconscious thinking telling me…NEED TO BUY. Lol.

if a blogger reviews something i will often visit the store and buy things from the store. maybe not the specific item the blogger wore but if i see a lot of real people blogging about a specific store i like to check it out and purchase if i see something i like.

I can’t say I have. I’ve been shopping at a lot of my town’s local stores lately, so they might not carry the clothes featured in blogs. Blogs are definitely a source of inspiration for me, though.

Fashion blogs definitely inspire me to purchase. I developed love for colored jeggings after reading about them on FREECULTR’s blogs. Now, my wardrobe is full of lovely colorful jeggings. To check out FREECULTR’s blog, click – http://blog.freecultr.com/

I’ve bought a teeth whitener kit someone reviewed on a blog! I loved it! And they also posted a good coupon for it!

Yes always! Blogging is such a great way to find out about products & most of the time you can trust that it’s going to be an honest review. I posted in my blog the other day asking my readers to give me advice for “Birthday Gift Ideas” for a girl friend of mine and one of my fabulous readers gave me the website for the cutest birthday card & gift ideas that are super affordable! http://www.treat.com/birthday-greetings.htm

I put a picture of my friend and I on the front of the birthday card with a sweet & sincere birthday message on the inside which got shipped right to her! She absolutely loved it. The blogiverse is the perfect place to share your favorite brands and products :)

I haven’t done that, but I thought of doing so. Famous bloggers with model like bodies have a way about them that convinces people that a product or service is worth your money.
