"One evening a couple of weeks ago, after getting my kids to sleep and opening up a bottle of wine, I found myself at my computer eager to find some inspiration and new discoveries on the web," Gwyneth writes in the latest issue of Goop. In other words, Gwyneth gets drunk and goes browsing online just like the rest of us.
Now, say what you want about Gwyneth's lifestyle advice being a bit out of touch on occasion, it's basically impossible to argue with her shopping recommendations. The woman has annoying great taste. Here are a few e-commerce discoveries from her after-hours surfing bender:
Matches: A high-end London boutique with a great e-commerce site (and shipping to the US)
Lux-Fix: Current-season designer collections edited by the designers themselves. Discounts, limited editions, and free global shipping.
Maryam Nessir Zadeh: A New York boutique with edgy, minimalist leanings, much like Gwyneth herself.
LN-CC: You can only visit this London LN-CC boutique in London if you have an appointment, but they can't keep you out of the website!
Latest Revival: Luxury jewelry.
Munzungu Sisters: Interactive shopping site and shop, curated by a pair of globetrotting sisters.
Avenue 32: More luxury fashion at this UK-based site. Think Net-a-Porter, but smaller.
Gift Lab: Gifting made easy for anyone with lots of money to spend.
All in all, a great list. Head over to Goop for more Tumblrs and other internet time-sucks, courtesy of Gwyneth.
