Online Shopping: Avoiding the Big Box Stores

There’s something special about receiving a package on your doorstep (even when you placed the order, paid extra for 2-day deliver, and tracked it). I haven’t always been a fan of online shopping, probably because I look for the instant gratification of making a purchase and having that brand new, shiny object in my hands. As I get older, I have found less time available to in-store shop and am becoming increasingly less impressed with what I see in stores. Like many of you, I too have turned to online shopping for my fix. Sharing a few of my favorites; ones you may never heard of, but if you give them a try, they’ll become your new go-to sites!

Shop Hopes

Make sure to follow them on Instagram, they share new arrivals and ask for opinions on what they’re considering bringing to the shop!

Modern Ego

You’ll definitely get the boutique feel when you shop Modern Ego! Check out my tab here on the blog for a few of my favorites!

FOI Clothing

They have a killer Instagram that will make you shop ’til you drop! I recently purchased their Sequin Leggings in Black which will be on the blog in the coming weeks!  They also have really great blanket scarves, perfect for the upcoming chilly weather!

Mindy Mae’s Market

This site is adorable for so many reasons! In love with the News tab and cute, simple tutorials. Loving this sequin top for holiday season!

If you’ve ever looked around Etsy, you may have come across some winning stores. I wanted to share a new up and coming shop run by a friend: Poshishh. If you like 90s clothing, you’ll love what her site is becoming! Right now, she has some fantastic winter coats – stop by & let me know what you think!

A few of my other favorite Etsy shops worth taking a look at: Illumminee, for great street style/ off runway looks, YL1dress, fantastic options for military-inspired jackets, & megzfashion,  her shop is just cute in general (this girl knows how to style!).

I love supporting boutiques & small business owners! It’s the best way to jazz up your closet with unique pieces!
