Favorite online stores+tips.

Online shopping can be intimidating when you are not used to it. I mean buying clothing without trying it on is pretty risky but it is not that complicated believe me. As for me, I prefer shopping online,on my bed,in my PJ’s with a messy bun! So here are my favorite online stores to shop on and why I love them so much!

(P.S I’m from canada so the shipping infos may not be the same for other countries)

1.Zara

This is no secret to anybody. I’m obsessed with Zara!It is one of my favorite store ever and even tough I shop in stores sometimes, I like shopping on their website better. The pictures are very editorial and so inspiring. There is always free shipping over 50$CAD  and you can return or exchange in store so there are no extra charge! And plus, the shipping is extra fast!

2.Forever 21

When it comes to Forever 21, I definietly prefer shopping online. I find the stores so overwhelming and never seem to find what I’m looking for. I like the fact that they have online exclusives and they actually look so much better than the in store collection. The styling is really good on the photos and I LOVE that they use blogger photos for some of the items!They ship super super fast and they often have a free shipping option.

3.ALDO & Call it spring

Buying shoes online is pretty tricky but if you ever purchased from Aldo or call it spring, the sizing is really similar with all their shoes, they are pretty consistent. You can always exchange or return in store and like the others they offer free shipping with a minimum purchase.

4.Top Shop (The Bay)

In Canada our Top Shop stores are affiliated to The Bay, so basically you order from their website, but still I love shopping there.It meets my two must have criteria,free shipping option and in store return and exchanges.Depending on the time of year, the shipping is also really fast.

5.Urban Outfitters

I don’t have an Urban Outfitters store near where I live so I’m always shopping on their website. They offer free postal returns which is great and they include the customs in their shipping price (Fixed at 9,95$ CAD) so its pretty reasonable giving the fact that you can order even large home decor at this rate.The photos on the website are gorgeous and it’s really easy to find what you are looking for.
