Online Boutiques: Where You Need To Be Shopping


Where do you do your online shopping? Today I’m going to be sharing with you my top 3 favorite places to shop online and the ins and outs of how to get the best deals on your orders!

Etsy is a handmade goods goldmine. If you’re looking for something unique and original, this is your go-to! Etsy is an independent vendor website/app where anyone can sign up and sell their self-made products. Download the app, make yourself an account, and search away! You can save your favorite items and shops into different categories on your profile, giving it a really fun Pinterest-style feel. I can spend hours scrolling through everyone’s unique goods. You can find just about everything on Etsy from personalized wedding gifts to home decor and handmade jewelry. This is a great place to get someone a unique gift for an upcoming holiday. A lot of the vendors offer special discounts during certain times of the year, so I suggest looking out for those. Also, you can buy Etsy gift cards – which is pretty cool!

LuLu’s is my go-to for just about anything I’m shopping for. They have everything from casual outfits to going out dresses, plus tons of shoes and accessories. All of their stuff is great quality and is reasonably priced. I love going to their site when I’m in need of some staple pieces that I can wear and wash over and over again without worrying about them falling apart, as well as statement outfits for special events. Be sure to check out my birthday post to see the LuLu’s dress I wore out to dinner with my boyfriend! One of the best parts about LuLu’s is that once you make an account and subscribe to their emails, they’ll send you updates on sales and exclusive coupon codes to get great deals!

Brandy Melville.
Anyone who knows me knows very well that I put the same Brandy outfit on everyday when I get home from class or work (Vodi shorts and a Joanne tank pictured above)… I can’t help it – it’s just so comfortable! This is considered an online-only boutique for me because there aren’t any near me in the Midwest. The only downside is that everything is sold as “one size fits all” – however, I find a good amount of their items to be suitable for a variety of body types due to the popular oversized fit. However, it’s likely that not all of their clothing will fit you, so keep that in mind when scrolling through the site and choosing your items. As for discounts, Google search coupons and discount codes and you can often find deals on Retail Me Not and various other discount sites.

Where are your favorite places to shop online? I’m always timid to try out new places so let me know what stores you recommend!

    I love Etsy, I can’t wait to have my own place because that is where I will be buying a lot of my homeware that’s for sure. xx

      Me too! Sometimes it’s difficult to not get the same decor everyone else has, but Etsy makes it much easier! Thanks for commenting Jade 🙂
