Okay, if there's one thing I NEVER do, it's post about an online store I like without including photographs of myself in one of its products for context. But I gotta blog about SOMETHIN' on days when I don't have an outfit post prepared, and since so many of you are seeking affordable options in the great cyber search for cool clothes, this is a great opportunity for me to make some recommendations (and a constructive use of my spare time!) Who doesn't want to shop till they drop except not actually drop because they never have to get out of the laying down position or leave the comfort of their bedroom (and five empty bags of Doritos surrounding them plus countless tabs of Garfield-related avant youtube videos in another window OH YOU GUYS CAUGHT ME TALKING ABOUT MYSELF AGAIN? UGH!)
My obvious favorites are the stores from which most of my clothing is acquired (there's GOT to be a way to make that sentence sound infinitely less pretentious but I honestly can't figure out what it is because it's 4 in the morning and I just got back from a poolside discussion about Shakespeare from a symbolic interactionist perspective and HAHAHA I AM SUCH A BOURGEOIS TEENAGER.) Some of those faves are Romwe, Chicwish, Yes Style, Lulu*s, Oasap/Sheinside, and Native Heart. Besides the inventory, flexible or FREE shipping rates, and affordable price point, most of these retailers are headed by great people who care about their customers and will communicate with them to accommodate their needs. I've had incredible experiences working with most of my sponsors and encourage anyone seeking a successful online shopping endeavor to vest their trust in these companies.
I made collages out of awesome stock photos I found on the sites of companies with whom I enjoy collaborating -- hope you guys are as inspired as I am!!
9 CROW STREET
I MUST share the glory that is this secondhand shop's vintage novelty before I fall to the floor, catatonic with lust-induced paralysis. The store's called 9 Crow Street and offers hand-selected secondhand and vintage pieces in all my favorite styles -- satin sportswear, ombre denim, tie-dye dungarees, and clever t-shirts. Love it or love it? Me too!
Jolie Moi is a UK shop that caters to the trend-conscious, cosmopolitan youth. Galaxy print, drop waist dresses and maxi length garments in leopard and cheetah are among its best sellers. Nearly every one of its products would look perfect at a candlelit dinner -- I made a collage featuring outfit ideas for date night to inspire your inner romantic.
I recommend Romwe almost militantly to my friends and followers because it has a comprehensive stock and garments that suit every theme. It also offers free shipping worldwide which is NOT something to take for granted -- most retailers that boast prices are reasonable as Romwe's compensate for it with pricey postage. Romwe also hosts frequent giveaways on their Facebook page and offers a 20% discount for new customers. In the spirit of summer, I compiled two collages for looks that I sport most; festival-ternative and rock n' roll!
ROCK N' ROLL
Let me know what you think! And as always, I'm happy to provide some style advisory on my Formspring.
