Best Online Stores
Forget online banking and email. For women like us, the best thing the internet has brought us is: online shopping! From bridesmaid dresses to a pair of designer boots (only 99c!) I’ve bought it all. Here are our favourite sites:
Comfortable, wearable clothes for every occasion with very reasonable prices. Originally from New Zealand, you probably better recognise Ezibuy by its classic catalogue-style. There’s a diverse range for all shapes, sizes, tastes and budgets.
Just like the markets of your dreams, with a mix of handmade designs to second-hand treasures, Etsy is the warmest and fuzziest online shopping experience around! Decorate your home, organise your entire wedding, fill your jewelry box and buy the loveliest, most personalised presents for friends from talented crafties from all over the world. Shipping is very cheap too
One of our favourite sites. If you’ve ever been to their stores in the US or London you’ll know it’s one of the prettiest, most unique shopping destinations in the world, and they’ve recreated that online really well. Beautifully feminine, tailored clothing and accessories. Can be pricey, so look out for their sales.
Any trend or style you could possibly think of and UK-based asos has got it covered, and for affordable prices. They also have incredible end-of-season sales which is great for us and our opposite seasons! Join the Facebook group to get updates on the latest trends and exclusive offers – including the rare free shipping to Australia.
This site is chockers with hundreds of designers including Marc by Marc Jacobs, Zimmerman, camilla and marc, sass & bide and Juicy Couture. Even better – they have up to 70% off retail prices, and free 3-day international shipping for orders over $100. I recently bought lovely Gorjana leather bracelets for friends for $55.
Frock You is all about funky, flirty and affordable fashion for women and children. And, because it’s Australia-based, you don’t have to wait weeks for your order to arrive! Subscribe to their newsletter for an extra 10% off.
If you’re a woman who loves her designers, this site is for you. Net-a-porter offers the latest pieces from luxe labels including Gucci, Miu Miu, YSL, Alexander McQueen and Christian Louboutin.
As well as their own label, Freez focuses on pretty and affordable labels such as Ladakh, MINKPINK, Junk and Anise. It has an ongoing $39-and-under-sale and no waiting: if you order before 2pm it arrives the next day! Also, join their Facebook group for competitions and limited offers.
Aussie girls have been begging for this UK label to open stores here for years, but no luck yet. For now we will have to stick with the online store that sells bold and on-trend clothes, shoes, lingerie and accessories, including a line designed by Kate Moss.
