Five One-Stop E-Tailers
For years Zara has been my go-to shopping spot. And who can blame me? They drop the latest trends like it's hot bread and quite frankly they hardly disappoint. I’ve found myself pretty good deals on cropped jeans, stylish shoes, and cute tops.
However, the older I get the more I appreciate quality and durability when it comes fashion. I’m trying to abstain from the fast-fashion circuit–and though I’m nowhere near leaving it all behind, I’ve definitely brought myself to a start. I’ve become familiar with indie and up-and-coming brands and designers that have grabbed my attention. I love individuality hence why I love thrift/vintage shopping so much.
Below are five shops I’ve been surfing on the web lately. Some of them carry everything from clothing and accessories to even art and home decor!
NEED SUPPLY CO.
Based out of Richmond, VA., Need Supply Co. began as a tiny local boutique selling vintage Levi’s and has since turned into a global market for all things cool–including men’s and women’s basics, clothing, and accessories. They feature well-known brands and independent designers.
Like how amazing are these mesh slingbacks from Creatures Of Comfort?
And this lemon coat from Ganni? Yeah, I know. Sooo good!
LISA SAYS GAH!
LSG quickly became a favorite–I want so many things from this site! It’s a highly-curated shop with an amazing selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories from artists and up-and-coming designers that make you want to say gah!–thus the name. They only work with brands that utilize high-quality materials and are mindful of ethical production. Everything on here is so unique and it really feels like it was hand-picked just for you.
This pink top from FLEUR DU MAL is calling my name.
And these Maryam Nassir Zadeh wedges are all I want to wear this summer.
I. AM. GIA
Like so many great things in life I discovered this brand through Instagram. I don’t know too much about them, but I know they have this amazing teddy coat which I’ve been eyeing for a few weeks now. Spring hasn't show up yet, so maybe?!
And this pink two-piece set (sold separately) which I can already see myself wearing if warm weather ever decides to show up.
I came across Garmentory a few years back while searching for a pair of black booties. I found the perfect pair on their website and was able to make an offer (you can learn more about this here). Unfortunately, they were lost or stolen somewhere along the way, but luckily their team was really nice about the whole situation and went on to refund me. Over the years I've watched them grow into what has become an amazing platform to shop for original items made by artists and independent designers. I'm pretty obsessed.
This bag from The Stowe has a unique shape and I can see me wearing it all the time.
And these pants with knotted detail fit right in with my current addiction to wide-leg bottoms.
Tictail is one of my favorite shops here in NYC. Last year I got to style three looks and do a shoot at their shop which you can see here, here, and here. Not only do they have a high selection of literally everything–clothing, shoes, accessories, home and more! But I love that they're passionate about featuring female designers and entrepreneurs. They have fun cocktails and happy hours in which they invite female activists and some of their designers to give empowering talks on having your own business or side hustle.
I think I need to add these to my earrings collection.
And these to my socks' one!
