Online shopping sites we love
Monday, 18 Jun 2012
Rough day? You need some retail therapy.
1. Make yourself a stiff drink
2. Change into PJs
3. Call the hubby to remind him that you have borne 2 children
4. Open the internet browser
5. Give that credit card a good workout.
Here’s a list of online shopping sites that really hit the spot.
Aka fashion bible. From luxe labels like3.1 Phillip Lim and Herve Leger to cult faves Rachel Comey, Pencey, Current/Elliott, and CLARE VIVIER, Shopbop is our top pick for online shopping. They also make international shipping incredibly easy! Warning: you will lose productive hours to Shopbop. Enter at your own risk.
Free worldwide express delivery on international orders over $100.
Not as popular as Shopbop but this site is severely underrated. Revolve carries tons of great labels and also offers fab shipping rates.
Free international shipping on orders over $100, expedited international shipping at a flat $8 fee on orders over $100.
For those who prefer to shop vintage or independent designers, shop Etsy. Unlike regular retail sites, Etsy does not curate its selection (you buy from independent sellers), so be prepared to trawl through junk before you stumble upon gold. And believe us, there’s some good finds in here.
International shipping rates vary according to sellers.
