Heart Evangelista's 3 Tips To Keep In Mind When Shopping Online
She reveals her top online shopping site, too!
It’s definitely easier to shop for clothes, shoes, and just everything you can imagine with a tap of a finger. And for one of our favorite style inspos Heart Evangelista, she sure does not hesitate to add to cart and check out items when she goes online shopping. While she admits that she was once the type to want to “touch” the product before deciding to buy, the actress has now seen the beauty and convenience that e-commerce has brought to our lives.
Thus, Heart continues to support not just by doing some online retail therapy, but also signing up for the third year with “Asia’s Fashion Expert” ZALORA as their official endorser. “ZALORA is a company that shares my love for fashion, and what I really appreciate about them is how they’re able to make such a wide variety of brands accessible not only to me, but to everyone else, too,” she discloses. “And even for their 11th year, they’re making sure that the celebration is shared by all Filipinos with huge discounts throughout the month.”
As the brand celebrates their 11th year, the fashionphile encourages everyone to give ourselves a little spoiling with ZALORA’s wide variety of threads at crazy low prices. “I just wanna say that I love how we Filipinos are investing in ourselves now, especially when it comes to really taking care of ourselves and making ourselves feel better with clothes,” Heart adds.

Still not convinced? Take it from Heart, then—below, Heart offers words of wisdom on shopping mindfully. Whether you’re a bit hesitant on spending or still pondering on how to choose the best pieces for you, listen to Heart—then listen to “your heart”. Read on!
1. "Add up your wishlists first."
It doesn’t matter if you’re going for luxury or mid-range—Heart believes that whatever you like that you see, let it sit in your wishlists so you can go over them when you’re finally deciding to choose which to check out. It’s an added bonus that, when you tap that wishlist icon in the ZALORA app, you’ll be gifted with exclusive offers straight to your email!
2. “If you know yourself, you know your size.”
By truly knowing what you like and what fits you, online shopping becomes a breeze. And with the e-commerce platform, Heart gushes about the availability of different sizes, making it an inclusive platform for all. “When you know your body type, you know your insecurities and what you feel comfortable showing, you kinda know what brands to stick with. And you don’t wanna spend on certain products or merchandise you wanna experiment on,” she says.
3. "Choose items that make you feel good.“
You worked so hard for what you have, and if you buy something, you really wanna make sure that you’ll be able to use it a lot and it can make you feel good at the end of the day,” Heart advises. For the actress, it comes in a variety of styles—she likes going from classy and chic with pieces from the likes of Mango, Cos, and YSL to mood uplifters like cute smiley shirts and trendy items like graphic shirts. She’s also a wise spender, investing on socks, canvas bags, and knit sweaters—and having these handy definitely improves her overall everyday disposition, because she knows she bought what makes her feel good.
