Question: Where are the best places to shop online?
Answer: Ah, the joys of online shopping! One might call online shopping every girl’s weakness — there are so many great deals to be had — all from the comfort of one’s very own home. However, there are a lot of variables to take into account when shopping via the internet, so here’s a list of the best places to shop online:
Etsy.com: I love Etsy for so many reasons! I have ordered from them numerous times—buying iPhone cases, necklaces, and items for school dances. It’s basically a site for handcrafters to promote and sell their products. Every time I have purchased something from them, the product has either met or exceeded my expectations. In fact, I purchased this pearl necklace from Etsy a couple of years ago, and I still wear it to this day!
Hautelook.com: Another possibility is Hautelook. It was launched in 2007 as a Los Angeles-based online retailer. It offers its members limited-time sales and membership is free. I ordered a pair of gladiators from them about 3 years ago, and I still wear them!
Forever21.com: I’ve also had quite the luck with Forever 21, and I’m sure you will also (if their style appeals to you). They have great deals in their sale section, and their sizes were pretty accurate for me. In fact, one of my favorite pairs of dress shorts are from Forever 21!
Stylesforless.com: Styles For Less has many store locations, but their website is said to be an easier option. They have many stylish options for more inexpensive prices, so if you’re a college student, this may be the site for you!
10dollarmall.com: 10 Dollar Mall is literally what it sounds like—everything is $10 or less! The best part? Everything is super trendy and you won’t break the bank after an online shopping spree.
Necessaryclothing.com: Necessary Clothing is a chain of stores in the NYC downtown area, and their targeted consumers are, of course, trendy young women! They ship internationally, and if you spend $75 or more, shipping is free in the U.S.!
Charlotterusse.com: Another one of my favorite places to shop is Charlotte Russe. Many places do not offer physical Charlotte Russe locations, so it’s totally worth paying an online visit!
Altardstate.com: Altar’d State is probably my all-time favorite store. They currently have about 30 boutiques in the nation, and with them they carry their mission of providing young women with fashionable clothing—for a good cause. Each Monday, they donate 10% of net proceeds to a local charity. If you are lucky enough to visit a boutique, you will be surprised at how captivating the atmosphere is. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit two in different states, and both seemed to carry the same overall feeling and mission which was amazing to me. I purchased this owl shirt and dress from there, for about $40 total….great deals, I know! These are just a handful of my favorite places to shop. Of course the list is endless, but writing about each one would take far too long! I would recommend stopping into a store if you’re concerned about sizing, as a store clerk help you with ordering to ensure you’re getting the products you for sure want. If you’re a bit older than the stores I’ve listed, other ones to check out would be New York and Company, White House Black Market, Ann Taylor and Coldwater Creek. They all have hip and trendy options, but for a more sophisticated age.
Good luck and happy shopping!
