Fashion isn’t something I commonly talk about on my blog. I don’t feel like I have the best sense of fashion, mainly because I’m very cheap when it comes to buying clothes and I can really live in sweats if it was socially acceptable. The only time I’ll spend over $50 for one piece of clothing is if it’s for a dress or a special occasion. Even then, $50 is pushing it. Being in Canada, I find it a bit harder to find great deals than if I went to America, but shopping online always keeps me up-to-date on all the sales. Here is a list of my favourite stores to shop for new clothes, in store or online! These shops are great to shop at for back-to-school options, as well as seasonal outfits!
Urban Planet is my number 1 store to shop at. In fact, I went shopping there twice last week! Their clothes are already priced very reasonably, but they have 30-40% off sales very often. They have everything from athletic wear, clothes for work, clothes for a night out, and everything in between. Recently, they added clothing for kids, and have beauty products and items for your home! Bonus: they even have men’s clothing!
Like Urban Planet, Forever21 has almost every type of clothing you’re looking for. They also have beauty products for sale, and last week I noticed they’re incorporating more household items! I feel like Forever21 does have good quality clothes, so I come here mostly for work clothes or outfits for going out. They also have a section for men! I prefer to shop at Forever21 online because they have such a huge store and I find everything is placed so randomly. I like to shop online for the ease of sorting by price or sorting by department.
Lyst is a new-to-me online store. I mentioned earlier that I love shopping online, so this website makes it easy for me to find outfits. They combine a wide variety of designer items all in one place for easy shopping. It’s probably the most expensive place on my list to find items, but it’s great to get ideas of what to look out for. It’s definitely possible to find items for a good price on this website, especially in their sale section. In addition to their clothes, I’m really fond of their jewelry section – you need to check it out!
LuLu’s is hands down my favourite shop online to buy dresses. They are absolutely beautiful and really good quality. The prices for their items aren’t bad either! I actually bought the pink dress in the 3rd photo above for a wedding gown I went to in Mexico. The only issue I have ordering from LuLu’s, is that their prices are American. So when you convert to Canadian and then of course pay the shipping AND custom fees.. it almost doesn’t make it worth it. I highly suggest making a purchase with a friend and splitting all the extra costs.
