O N L I N E
Lately I've been really disenchanted with what's in stores at the moment (I've tried shopping multiple times last week and I just don't see anything that catches my eye or stops me in my tracks - maybe I've lost inspiration or perhaps I'm just more conservative since my hours got cut back at work). I've resulted to hitting the online stores which has been a little more successful than my shopping and market trips. I did a little bit of digging and discovering since I found that my usual go to online stores (ASOS, Topshop, Nastygal, Market HQ, Storets, My Catwalk, The Grand social etc.) had nothing of interest either! So thanks to some major procrastinating and delving through Lookbook.nu and other street style bloggers, I bring you a short list (in no particular order) of online stores to check out!
Spanish Moss: I love the look and feel of this store, a lovely mix of clothing and accessories photographed and styled to perfection. It's very boho/ hippie chic especially with its necklaces and rings. They showcase some great one-off unique vintage pieces as well so if you're sick of trawling through racks of clothing at vintage or second hand stores, Spanish Moss collected the best of the best.
Yayer: discovered via LLYMLRS, is a UK-based boutique featuring both vintage and new designed pieces for super affordable prices (everything is around £20 to £50). Right now they're flaunting the midi length and accordion pleated skirts in a bunch of art deco and tribal inspired prints as well as vintage blouses and singlets. It's really good basics in some unique prints and patterns so everyone is bound to find something they like! The only thing is that they're quick to sell out of their stock (every time they have a new drop of stock it goes within a few hours) so if you see something you like, go get it!
I Don't Like Mondays: These guys have been appearing all over the customised ad sections of webpages I visit, at first I thought little of it but I am so glad I finally decided to click otherwise I wouldn't have a T by Alexander Wang knit hanging up in my wardrobe. The US based store stocks brands like Cheap Monday, Obesity and Speed, Odeur and Savant - all basics and printed tees yet again (you know I love that stuff) that you probably won't see in stores. And best of all - free international shipping over $100!
Need Supply Co.: Another one of those online store you see web adverts for all over the place (namely Lookbook). They stock alot of brands you see everywhere like Cheap Monday, Style Stalker, Low Luv x Erin Wasson, Mink Pink and Jeffrey Campbell etc. but they have alot of great unknown or cult/ indie labels as well. I think part of what makes a online store that much better is the layout of the page and also the way they shoot the clothes. They have plenty of shots from all angles for every piece and also measurements and detailed descriptions (which alot of sites lack - I hate not knowing how long something is especially because I'm not model tall).
I think I've only just touched the tip of the iceberg (I have been through quite a few but I only posted the ones I thought were quality), so if you have any recommendations for your favourite places to shop online, let me know :)
And thank you to all my new followers and comments left on my blog. You have no idea how much it means to me that people (besides my close friends) are reading and enjoying this. So keep them coming. Back to writing that darn essay! xo
