Shopping Alternatives

Shopping for clothes isn't something I do on a regular basis. For various reasons, one of the major ones being I don't have money to do so. But also because strolling around the mall trying to find stuff that fits and I can justify paying that much money for isn't all that fun. So online shopping has become a nice outlet for me. I can find deals, coupons, sales, discounts, freebies, all kinds of sizes, colors, designs, you name it.
And once again, Pinterest has introduced me to a new love; boutiques. What I would give to run on of these things...

These places all have up to date, somewhat trendy pieces that you might not necessarily keep as classic, forever items. But they're reasonably priced (I've adjusted my budget from never paying more than $5 clearance prices to reality) and definitely cute additions to those looking to expand and update a wardrobe.

Another source I have to mention is Etsy. I received several darling gifts from Etsy over Christmas and for my birthday and love that they continue to grow. This is a great place to find originals or cheaper not-so-original pieces. My latest discovery is one I'd rather keep to myself because I have to, well, would like to wait to purchase it until after changing my last name. But it's too dang sweet not to share.

You can pretty much get anything and everything monogrammed now! I'm most excited about the pullover, even though spring is coming. It's the perfect outfit for shopping, running errands, actually running, etc. I'm gonna need one.

Hope this inspires y'all to broaden your shopping horizons! (Just try not to do too much window shopping. That's just as defeating as real life window shopping).

  1. but how will we carry all of your shopping bags on one arm, while we order chik-fil-a for lunch, before going back for "one more thing" (at the other end of the mall) and then, finally, making our way out to the car exhausted. then (without a doubt) heading back the next day because... (fill in the blank). good times. good times. it just won't be the same.
