Over the last few months I have been introduced to some fabulous and new, to me, shops that have changed my shopping perspective. As a twenty-something, I have realized that this is the time when a wardrobe shift is needed and now is the time to begin building a fabulous and timeless closet. This effort has resulted in the search for good quality pieces that are worth the investment, and even some competitively priced fun pieces 😉 . Over the course of my wardrobe journey, I have stumbled upon a few shops that are making my huge shift, on a small budget, possible.
Those who love fashion already know the name ASOS, but I have only recently discovered it (and LOVE IT)! This online store carries a variety of brands, but I personally prefer their own brand. ASOS takes high fashion trends and fashion forecasting and creates quality garments and accessories that don’t break the bank. It is a fantastic place to find wardrobe staples, like the black skinnies I just purchased for $20! Another plus: FREE shipping and FREE returns. Seriously, you cannot pass this one up.
2) Bauble Bar
If you love jewelry, this is the place for you! They carry beautiful pieces at affordable prices, and they often have sales where you can snag select bracelets for $10 or a necklace for $20. Like ASOS, they offer FREE shipping and FREE returns. Talk about a girl’s dream.
3) Stella & Dot
This is a prime spot for affordable accessories, and I’m sure you’ve seen their bracelets featured in many fashion blog posts across the board (especially their renegade cluster bracelet). Though the price point is slightly higher than that of Bauble Bar, they tend to offer classic pieces that are worth the investment.
Poshmark is one of the best organized re-sell portals I have seen. The site mainly operates via an app for your phone (iPhone only for the time being, but an Android app is coming soon), where you can easily list and buy new and used items. The items range from Roxy to Rodarte, from American Eagle to Valentino; honestly, the sky is the limit on Poshmark. Shipping may not be free, but it is definitely low enough to make it worth it, and some sellers will bundle items so you can save on shipping. Another plus, the app allows you to comment on the item and possibly haggle the price down.
That’s my list so far, but I cannot wait to find new, affordable places to shop! Any suggestions?
