If you're the kind of girl that eats, breathes, and lives fashion, you're going to love Paige's list of addictive fashion websites! Thank you Paige for this fashion-tastic post.
Online shopping can be overwhelming with the numerous sites right at your fingertips. However, the following sites are sure to give you amazing fashion at great prices paired with an unforgettable shopping experience. Bookmark 'em!
Hautelook is one of my favorite sites by far. Everyday new deals are posted from your favorite designers. You can score up to 75% of women's and men's fashions, kids apparel and toys, beauty products and home decor. Membership is absolutely free and you can even get spending money by inviting your friends. The site is owned by Nordstrom so you get the reliability along with the easy to navigate and operate site. CAUTION: Can be very addicting!
Gilt is very much like Hautelook. The two big differences are that gilt not only offers what Hautelook does but exclusive local services and experiences, and one-of-a-kind travel packages as well, and instead of a possible 75% off the discount ceiling is 60%. You can still find amazing fashions at great prices though. Don't let the 15% difference scare you away.
3. Just Fab
Just Fab is a site, led by President & Creative Director Kimora Lee Simmons, that brings you amazing shoes, handbags and more at only $39.95. Your shopping experience is personalized by taking a short style quiz when you sign up. You are then given a showcase of shoes and handbags that stylists think you'll fall in love with. And trust me, you will. If the $39.95 hasn't sold you already, log on and you'll see.
I personally perfer ShoeMint over Just Fab because at ShoeMint the shoes are crafted by none other than Steve Madden. I, as many of you other shoe lovers I'm sure, am addicted to anything Steve Maden. So, the fact that I can combine personalized shopping with Steve Madden crafted shoes is pure shopping Heaven! Other celebrities involved in ShoeMint are actress and fashion icon Rachel Bilson and visionary celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez. Together they design shoes that you are sure to fall head over your sky high heels for.
I just discovered Etsy recently and realized I'm a little late on the trend that is Etsy. This site combines many stores into one. But these stores aren't the typical designers you are used to. You can find ANYTHING, and I mean anything, on Etsy created by people just like you. On Etsy you are able to create your own online store and sell your handmade fashion or any other product. Don't let the homemade aspect scare you. You can find all kinds of amazing fashions combined into this easy to use site.
DailyLook is another website I recently discovered. If you are the type of person that has trouble putting outfits together or just loves clothes this site should be bookmarked right now! DailyLook gives you outfits put together out of amazing pieces at really great prices. You can either buy every piece in the outfit or your favorites individually. The site updates everyday giving you tons of amazing outfits that can inspire you to update that wardrobe just in time for spring and summer.
7. Little Black Bag
This site is by far the most fun shopping experience you will ever have! You sign up and take a short style quiz, but this is where the similarity to other sites ends. You are then taken to a large showcase of accessories that you are sure to love. Pick one. Then, stylists will place 3-4 extra items in your bag depending on the retail price. You have to buy the bag now before seeing the other items. It is only $50 for all the things you get. The actually retail price could be anywhere from $100+. This is where the fun part comes in. The additional items are now revealed and you are able to trade the items with thousands of other users for items in their bags. The trading can last for hours. It is the most addicting part. It gives you such a thrill! When you are finally done with trading you can seal your bag and have it shipped to you! It's a shopping experience you'll want to do every month!
Now that your bookmark bar is full of amazing fashion sites, try not to get too addicted. They are all different, but for sure will leave you wanting to come back again and again.
