Where I Shop Online & Why

ERIKA-2804-35

Hello everyone and happy Friday – I hope you all had a great week! This week I wanted to share with you my favourite places to shop online. Shopping online has became such a popular (& very convenient) thing over the last few years and I, for one definitely prefer it, along with many others I’m sure. It’s a huge time saver which is important to me and allows you to avoid hitting the busy shops and my least favourite thing … the trying on (am I the only one who hates that part?). So below are my some of my go-to online stores along with links to some options I’m currently loving (and WANT) from each store..

ASOS


ASOS is definitely one of the first sites I look to when it comes to shopping for an occasion or the latest on-trend piece. They always seem to be ahead of the game and have such a variety of options – it’s hard not to leave the site without a full basket. I especially love this striped jumpsuit, it would be so perfect for a wedding!

RIVER ISLAND


River Island have always been high up on my list of favourite high street stores and lately, I feel they have upped their game even more! Over the last few months I have gotten some of my favourite investment pieces (especially coats) from River Island and the quality is always next to none. They are always so great for more edgy pieces too like this T- Shirt dress, I love it!

5 things you need to stop worrying about

MISSGUIDED


Missguided for me is somewhere I like to shop for dresses if I have a big night out coming up. I also love their edgier pieces – so perfect for this time of year  if you have a festival coming up. They also are so great  for heels – I could definitely see myself in these black ones.

YSL Mini Crossbody Bag - Khaki Coat

BOOHOO


I always get my best value for Money in Boohoo. Over the years I have gathered quite a few bits from there and I nearly always get complimented on any of the pieces I wear. They are always on trend and carry unusual pieces which I really appreciate. I need this blue shirt in my Spring wardrobe.

H&M


I absolutely love H&M for my basics. It’s definitely my go-to lately for white shirts which you’ll know are one of my staple pieces in my wardrobe if you saw my latest YouTube video. I feel like it has been absolutely nailing all the current trends as well – I am obsessed wth style of this shirt.

Louise et Cie

MANGO


Mango is the shop I will always go to for those classic investment pieces. I feel like some of their clothing almost has designer quality but obviously at a much more reasonable price. I especially love their denim and practically live in the Olivia Jeans. I also LOVE this cardigan so much!

FARFETCH

Farfetch is my go-to online store for all things designer. Whenever I do buy designer, I tend to always order it online as sometimes it can work out much cheaper and I find that Farfetch has the best variety. These Saint Laurent heels are currently on my wish list!!

Givenchy Antigona - Patent Boots

FOREVER 21


Forvever 21 is one of the more affordable places to buy from here in New York (mostly because everything where else is SO expensive) so it can be very hard not to get carried away when online shopping on their site. I find myself always stocking up on their Spring/Summer pieces and also their shoes. This off the shoulder top is getting me excited for Spring!

bareMinerals - Complexion Rescue - My Makeup Routine

NORDSTROM


Nordstrom is where I stock up on my beauty bits. I think everyone has the fear of running out of their holy grail products so being able to stock up online is the handiest thing! I would be lost without my Nars foundation & MAC concealer!

TOPSHOP

I couldn’t write this post without including Topshop! You really just can’t ever go wrong with this store. I LOVE their Jamie jeans  & also really want add this white shirt to my collection!

REISS

REISS will always be an all time favourite for me. The simple tailored pieces they carry are just too hard to beat. Each season they just seem to be getting better and better so I’m very excited to see whats to come. I recently wore this jacket and pants suit and I could nearly go as far as saying it was my favourite thing I’ve worn in a while!

CLUB MONACO

We all have that one shop we would buy out if we won the lotto and Club Monaco is definitely that shop for me! I just love the timeless and classic style of the clothes and I know anything I purchase there is truly an investment piece I will have forever. I bought this jumpsuit just before Christmas and I have gotten so much wear out of it already!

Hope you enjoyed this post guys and that it inspires you to do some retail therapy! Have a great weekend!

    Hi Erika! A question about Farfetch: when you have ordered your bag there (Givenchy or Saint Laurent I think?), did you receive any box for the bag or only dustbag? I’m thinking of ordering, but would really appreciate the “complete” packaging when I’m spending a certain amount of money on a bag as investment piece. :)
