Online Retail Therapy

Let's face it. We all have those days where we don't feel like trying on piles of clothes in the dressing rooms only to be disappointed by pieces that are either too big, too small, or just plain hot messes. Luckily or unluckily online shopping has become a more popular choice of retail therapy, with wider selections as well as the convenience of shopping in the comfort of your own home! The only downside is figuring out sizing. Even though they have sizing charts, all pieces don't fit the same. Depending on the fabrics a piece can run smaller or larger than the true size. A tip for online shopping fans. Make sure you check the store's return policy to make sure you can actually return the item, and get a full refund in case it doesn't look or feel the way you were expecting it too! Pay close attention to sale items. Sometimes they may not be returnable and may be final sale!

Here are a few items that caught my eye on some of my favorite online stores

  1. I'm personally a huge fan of everything on the site is $15 (although with shipping it's more around $20 which is still reasonable). Only issue is that they don't let you return anything.
