Favourite Thing Friday #20: Online Shopping

15 Aug

This is usually what I look like when online shopping….and that is just fine with me!

When online shopping became a thing, my bank account didn’t.

I have a few go-to sites that I love for finding pieces I generally can’t at my usual stops at the mall – Aritizia, J. Crew, Zara, Marciano…the list goes on.

I don’t buy pants online. I am one of those people who MUST try on pants before buying as they never fit the same. However, when it comes to tops and dresses, I am usually the same size across the board. This unfortunately/fortunately makes online shopping a cinch.

Here are some of my go-to sites to browse when I am a) bored, b) sad, c) looking for something specific, d) have an occasion, and e) don’t have an occasion but feel compelled to spend money I don’t have.

1. Mura Boutique

Australians seriously have all the best shops and clothes. And why do they have to be oh so far?? Thankfully Mura ships worldwide, and the shipping costs really aren’t that much ($10-$20 max)! If you are looking for a special occasion dress, Mura is a no-brainer. Here is one of my favourite pieces – and for under $60 CDN.


2. E’s Closet

I wish I grabbed this URL first! I find their clothes are sometimes hit or miss, but when they have something I like, it is seriously love at first sight. E’s Closet is US based, and is one of Emily Maynard’s go-to shops (I love her…a lot). Both her coat and dress are from last season at E’s Closet below.



3. Nordstrom

Like DUH. And I do realize they are an actual STORE not just an online shop, but they do not have stores up here (yet…come on 2015!) and do ship to Canada. So, as such, Nordstrom obviously makes the list. Whatever it is you are looking for, there is a 99.9% chance Nordstrom has it. And another 99.9% chance it is on sale. Win/win!


Free shipping to Canada anyone? How often do we hear that? How about never. With brands from Alice + Olivia and Rebecca Minkoff to Free People and LNA, SHOPBOP has it all. Just don’t go “shopping” here unless you have some cash to spend…

My fave t-shirt ever, from SHOPBOP.


 5. Asos

Another gem at the click of your fingers. Asos has it all, but at a discount. If you aren’t worried about brand names and just want a cute outfit at a great price (but really…who doesn’t?!), then Asos is your stop. Check out this skirt I got from Asos below – I wear it all.the.time. PS…they also ship free to Canada on order over $35.


6. Love Storey Boutique

Another trendy online shop from down under! I love this store for eye catching fashion, their use of lace, and just all around different sort of clothes you generally find here. See what I mean?


And I love this top, especially with a gold belt.


Do you online shop? What are some of your favourite online stores? Let me know in the comments!
