Part 1 – Online Resources
Many people limit themselves by failing to use the vastness of the internet to their advantage when it comes to shopping. Now don’t get me wrong, I like mall & boutique hopping quite a bit. Cyberspace howevever, can often offer a helping hand.
Shopbob.com, for instance, gives you the option of shopping by style. You can choose from categories like Classic, Bohemian, Cassual Chic, and more.
Shopbop is also a good resource for shopping by designers. And remember that even if you don’t purchase online, browsing sites can give you an idea of what you want your personal style to include. This can help you know what to look for when you shop in person and help you avoid buying pieces you won’t actually wear.
StyleFeeder.com is another useful site. This service allows you to search for everything from jewelry to jeans that spark your interest. Once you have picked a few items, Style Feeder makes suggestions of similar pieces you may like. The more you pick, the more customized your suggestions become. You can also add your cool personal StyleFeeder button to your website, blog, or Facebook page.
If you aren’t yet hip to Etsy, you should be. This site gives you access to an endless roster of designers of all kinds, from diamond jewelry to funky scarves and every handmade item in between. Often, indie or new designers will have the next best thing on Etsy, for last years prices.
