5 Favorite Online Stores to Shop this Season

By: @sakiraphael

One of my favorite hobbies is to shop! Whether it’s online or in stores, I’m there. Lately, I’ve been reaching for the laptop a lot more than heading to the mall. You will always catch a good sale or free shipping online. Who doesn’t love that? I’ve listed my top 5 favorite online stores that I love to shop on.

  1. Aliexpress.com

Yes, I know the majority of the items are shipped from China. But when I’m paying as low as $1 for certain things I don’t mind waiting 2-3 weeks for them. Some of my favorite items I love purchasing from the site are phone cases, bathing suits, and cute sunglasses.

2. Amazon.com

If you read my previous post, then you know Amazon will be on my list. Who doesn’t love Amazon? You can literally get EVERYTHING on the site. You can even get groceries with Amazon Fresh. That’s so amazing.

3. Poshmark.com

Whatever you are shopping for, they got it! It’s an online marketplace where you can buy, sell and style fashion. Looking for a specific brand to shop they have it! Looking to sell some clothes/shoes go ahead. It’s great because you can make some extra cash to continue shopping lol.

4. Nordstrom.com

I know I know some will say it’s a very expensive store. But you will be surprised to find a lot of great deals in the sale sections. These are some of the things that are currently in my cart awaiting checkout.

5. Missguided.com

I remember when I first discovered this site, YEARS ago. It was love at first sight. Lol. Whenever I have an event to attend, this is my go-to site. They constantly have hundreds of items on sale. They are everything!!! Probably half my wardrobe is from Missguided. What I love the most is that they have these exclusive collab collections with celebrities so you can shop their picks and designs. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

When shopping online always look for security and privacy seals on the retailer’s sites and know the return and exchange policies.  Always make sure you are getting the best deals online. I love to compare prices with different sites and make sure I’m never overpaying. Discount codes are a must! Most of the sites I listed above usually have some.

Happy shopping loves.
