I came across luxury site mytheresa.com when a friend ordered a faux-fur jacket that she had been coveting for months. Thrilled, she clicked and purchased, only to receive an email shortly thereafter saying it was out of stock. Imagine the disappointment. Hours later she received a call from the Munich-based online luxury retailer, promising to find her the jacket, and offering free shipping to boot.
While the items on the site are usually out of my price range, a splurge is in order every now and then, and mytheresa.com is always my first stop. Why? The site is easy to navigate, the items are photographed from numerous angles and styled with other things (that I dream about purchasing) and I can shop as easily from my iPhone or iPad as I can from my computer. I got in touch with one of their senior editors, Denise Lyons, to find out what makes the site so fantastic. She credits the team with keeping their buy very tight (read: a small buy of the best investment pieces) and maintaining a boutique-like feeling on the site. Mission accomplished.
