i love shopping. i love physically going to a brick and mortar store and pawing through racks and racks of clothing, shoes and accessories. i will walk through a store, pick out a good 20 things, try them on...and then i will walk through the store a second time to make sure i didn't miss anything. but let's get real, i don't have that kind of time. sure, there are days when i pick my kids up from school, with a portable dinner in tow so that we can all go to the local thrift store (yes, i have taught my kids to love thrift stores, garage and rummage sales). but i like to go to most retail stores sans the kids. the blaring music and huge crowds of forever 21 just isn't conducive to bringing your kids. maybe some day...but then probably that day, i shouldn't be shopping at forever 21 anymore.
so when i can't get to a store, online shopping is key. cause ya know, i have to shop (my mom literally thinks i have an addiction)! which leads me to today's question: where is your favorite place to shop online?
i have a few favorites, but i'd have to say forever 21 is my go-to online shopping store. i know that i can get a full outfit, including jewelry and a purse, if i really need/want to. they typically have free shipping on orders over $50, and let's face it, you can get a ton of stuff for $50 there. i know what sizes i am there, and i have tried on enough of their clothes that i know (for the most part) what will look good on me and what won't. i have no idea how their online returns work because there is an actual forever 21 within a few miles of my house, so if by chance i don't like something, i usually just end up returning it to the store.
as for shoes, i love urban original. they have super cute and super cheap shoes. i typically don't buy leather, so i usually end up buying cheap shoes, which suits my pocket book just fine. i like urban original because you can shop by style, size, price range and color; with such options to choose from like "party shoes", "wedges" and "open-toe heels". again, they typically have free shipping over $50. their return policy doesn't look fabulous, as they charge a restocking fee on free shipping orders...but again, i have never actually had to return a pair!
those are my faves, but i would love to hear your thoughts. i am always looking for new affordable places to shop (or even unaffordable places to "window" shop) online. so where do you online shop? what do you typically like to buy online?
