I’m not a huge fan of going out to shop during the holiday season. Messy tables, picked over sales racks, crowded stores, no place to park, rudeness; no thank you. I’d much rather shop online. I can stay home, stay warm and I don’t have to put on pants.


Browsing around the site, I learned that eShakti carries super cute clothes in all sizes and when they say all sizes, they mean all sizes. They carry things up to a size 36. Plus, if you send them your measurements, they can customize your garment for $7.50, regardless of how much they need to do. It’s not on a per stitch basis which is what you may find with a tailor.


Cute clothes at ridiculous prices? Yes, please. AliExperess is like etsy but for clothes, bags, electronics and more. There are independent designers and retailers on the site, so you can find a variety of styles and sizes.


Romwe is great for someone on your gift list that wears funky clothing that you just can’t seem to find other places. Watermelon purses, cat shoes and the like are for sale on the site, but you can also find “normal” looking dresses, cardigans, tops and shoes. Plus, they offer a discount on your first order and they have free shipping with no minimum purchase.


SheInside sells women’s apparel that’s inspired by high end designers without the high end designer price tag. They also sell jewelry and accessories, plus help on how to style outfits, plus free shipping anywhere in the world.

River Island

There’s a cool website that I really like to look at called TopShop and I say look because a lot of that stuff is too expensive. There’s a lot of cool stuff and cute outfits, but it’s too rich for my blood. That’s where River Island comes in. They sell the same kinds of apparel for men, women, girls and boys, plus accessories and it’s less expensive. Rihanna has also designed a collection for them.


Uniqlo has unique styles at low prices. See what I did there? They sell clothes for men, women, girls and boys. The clothes are good quality and while I don’t love everything on the site, I do like the free shipping over $75 orders and their HeatTech line.


ASOS is a UK based retailer that sells every type of garment you could want. They offer style help, an e magazine for your tablet or smartphone, plus sized clothing, and free shipping and returns from anywhere in the world.
