By Lucy

For those of you who are getting a wee bit bored of online shopping, no fear! I'm sure you've heard by now that Instagram is *the* place to shop these days! Designers have made it super easy for you to get your hands on some great bargains, all the while enjoying a great customer experience. ‌refinery29‌ has given us a fab list of pieces you simply must pick up via Insta shopping!

1 Vintage Loafers

Ever since I scored these amazing vintage loafers, I haven't turned back. This store is still fairly new, but I'll be checking back religiously for new gems.

2 Vintage Shoes

clothing, costume, spring, dress, outerwear,@goodvintagenyc
This Insta-shop knows a good vintage shoe (or jacket, or dress, or top) when it sees one — meaning the selection is out of this world. What we love most, though, is the pieces are shown on-body, so we can see how they actually fit. And, its offering is just as good as its name promises.

3 Unique Accessories

jeans, denim, clothing, pocket, abdomen,@shopmoonlightmile
What we love about this shop is that it's curated and selective. Instead of throwing a million items in your face per day, it takes things a bit slower, making the pieces feel more special. Though it sells all types of things, it's particularly strong for tops, earrings, and unique accessories.

4 Colourful Slides

A favorite to shop both on Instagram and IRL, People of 2morrow is a gold mine for vintage and name-brand goodies alike, and the prices can't be beat. Just comment "It's a wrap!" along with your last name to purchase straight from the feed. Come on, Rachel Comey shoes for under $100? Sign us up.

5 Basket Bags

Aside from selling some of our favorite indie and contemporary brands, S.F.-based Lisa Says Gah also boasts a pretty sick vintage section — and updates its Instagram following with the best sunglasses, basket bags, and more on the regular, with links to shop in the bio.

6 Sportswear

clothing, blue, outerwear,@ltrainvintage
Tap into one of New York City's coolest vintage stores from wherever in the world you are by following its constantly-updated feed. It sells select items on its website, and is pretty good about posting on Instagram every time something hits the store (but, you've got to move quick, because the best pieces never last long).

7 Aesthetically Pleasing Objects
