As much as I do love going into stores to feel materials and to see things in real life, I do the majority of my shopping online.
Here’s a quick list of my favorite places I online shop and why I love shopping at them.
My Favorite Places to Shop Online
There are a few reasons I mostly shop online.
Although you have the benefit of seeing things in person at stores, a lot of brick and mortar businesses don’t have full assortments, may be out of stock in your size, and sometimes, it can be a rushed or frustrating experience.
I like shopping online because you can see everything a brand makes, regardless of where you’re located. If you live in a warmer climate but looking for cold-weather clothes, the regional buyers may not have purchased certain items for your store. I like seeing everything that’s available so I can make the best decision for my needs. Shopping online also typically means you’ll see the newest arrivals first.
I also love the ability to try on my purchases in my home, on my time, with other items that I own. I’m a big believer in purchasing items that you can wear with lots of things in your closet, and shopping online allows me to do so in the comfort of my own home without second guessing what might work.
Here are my favorite places to shop online:
Sezane: Sezane is a French brand that I absolutely love. I visit the Sezane website at least once or twice week, as they do frequent clothing drops and the pieces sell out quickly. I’m a big fan of their sweaters, these wide leg trousers, and their leather handbags. Since Sezane is a French brand, I always find that their colors feel a little more special and unique to what I usually see in thee US. They offer free shipping over $200 and free returns. See my Sezane size guide and shopping tips here.
Shopbop: Shopbop is another website that I visit multiple times a week, not just to shop, but to also look at for styling ideas. They carry a great selection of contemporary brands, and every time I shop there I feel like I discover a new-to-me company. They are owned by Amazon, so if you have an Amazon account, you can get quick, free Prime shipping on your order and they have free returns within a certain time window.
Loft: Loft is a great place for affordable clothing. The brand makes my favorite layering turtlenecks, and the Peyton wide leg trouser is a personal favorite. The activewear line Lou & Grey is worth looking at, too!
M.M.LaFleur: If you’re looking to invest in high quality staples, you can’t go wrong with M.M.LaFleur. The O’Hara blazer is one of their star items, with a perfect oversized fit that doesn’t look sloppy. I also love the Leslie tee, a thicker, soft Pima cotton t-shirt that feels elevated and works for the office and the weekend.
Anine Bing: I’ve been a fan of Anine Bing‘s effortless, cool-girl Scandi style for YEARS. It’s been so cool to watch her brand grow! You can find Anine Bing at retailers like Revolve, Shopbop, and Bloomingdale’s. But of course the largest Anine Bine selection is on the company’s own site.
Gap: Gap is newly again on my radar, and they are totally having a moment again. If you haven’t shopped at Gap in a while, it’s worth a look. And since they often have sales, you can usually luck out with purchasing at a discounted price.
Although Sephora is my-go to online destination for most of my beauty purchases, there are two other online stores I like to shop.
Dermstore: Dermstore has a great selection of skin care products, including my favorite brands like Sunday Riley and Lancer. Since they’re a UK-based retailer, they also carry French pharmacy beauty products, like this cult favorite moisturizer loved by makeup artists around the world. Dermstore also has a handful of sales throughout the year where you can save on lots of luxury skincare brands.
Credo Beauty: If you’re looking to dip your toe into clean beauty, Credo Beauty is a great place to start. Kosas is a personal favorite, and I’ve also been dabbling in some products from Westman Atelier.
West Elm: I love the clean lines of mid-century design. We own a few small furniture items from West Elm, including this bar cart and entry table. We also have this bedding in our NYC apartment. However, I also love shopping there for accent pieces like vases and throw pillows.
Crate & Barrel: Crate & Barrel is my go-to for all things tabletop, like plates, drinking glasses, and napkins. They sell a great mix of highly affordable kitchen essentials, along with higher priced, special pieces.
Jonathan Adler: If bold, colorful, and quirky is your home decor style, you’ll love Jonathan Adler. Our LA home is mostly neutral, but our NYC apartment has pops of color, so I splurged on a few fun pieces from him.
Wayfair: I always end up finding some great things at Wayfair, and it’s one of the first places I look at whenever I’m shopping for a new rug. I also bought these dining chairs that look exactly like ones from CB2, at a much more affordable price!
