We all know the feeling of “waiting until pay day” don’t we? When you fall in love with a pair of shoes, a coat or a dress…. and then you realise that pay day is 2 weeks away. So you have no choice but to sit and wait agonisingly for each day to slowly pass, frantically checking daily whether the item you want is still in stock in your size until finally, pay day comes around.
Well, with Klarna you don’t have to do that anymore.
For those of you who are new to Klarna, it’s a payment service which allows you to pay now, pay later or pay instalments.
Klarna has over 170,000 merchants in 17 countries, including Topshop which is where I got this little outfit from.
Anyone who knows me will know that I love all things vintage inspired and that look like they’re straight out of the late 1960’s/early 1970’s. So when I saw this checked little pinafore dress I instantly thought – that has to be mine! I instantly added it to my cart imagining all the different ways I could style it; with a white shirt with a collar for more of a schoolgirl look, turtlenecks and even with a basic white t shirt. I love the versatility of pinafore dresses and in an age of focusing on sustainability, I think it’s important to ensure that whatever you buy can be worn several different ways, on several different occasions.
Once I had the dress in my basket, it would be rude not to add shoes and a bag right? As someone thats quite prone to wearing high heeled ankle boots, I saw these flat boots on the Topshop website and my feet gave a sigh of relief. They looked both comfortable and stylish, and I had the idea of wearing the black shoes with white socks for more of a retro look.
The black shoulder bag was a no-brainer. I’ve spent months searching for the perfect vintage looking shoulder bag and when I found this one which also matched my shoes.
I knew I had my outfit set.
Then it came round to paying, through Klarna I paid now for these items as I knew I had the money in my pocket at the time. However it’s good to have the option to pay later if you need to. The pay in instalments option is also great for large purchases, or if you want to buy a luxury item and split up the payments into more affordable chunks.
Whichever option you choose – with Klarna, looking fabulous just got that much easier.
