Let's Talk Shopping: Where I Shop

A couple of weeks ago, my good friend asked me where I shop. I thought to myself that the reason I created this blog was so that people would be inspired by my fashion and get ideas of how to put different pieces together. but then It dawned on me that I have never written a post on where I shop! So here is a list (both inexpensive and expensive) of boutiques and shops that I simply love. PS. I have ALWAYS been a big advocate for shopping local to not only have a unique style but to help out the local businesses!

For those who call San Diego home: 

  • Van De Vort - boutique serving the finest bohemian brands, chic shoes, and pieces that can jazz up any outfit. (PRICES: on the more expensive side, but YOU can find things for under $100)

  • Mabels - family owned boutique that sells both babY and women's clothes and CARRIES all locally-made jewelry. Half of my closet is Mabels because I worked at this amazing spot for a little over two years! I might be biased, but go check it out! (PRICES: ON THE MORE EXPENSIVE SIDE, BUT DEFINITELY HAS A GOOD SELECTION OF AFFORDABLE Pieces)

  • Cedros soles - best shoes ever, not to mention they have every type of clothing, JEWELRY, AND accessory ever! i have yet to leave cedros soles empty handed. DID I MENTION IT IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM MABELS? WIN WIN! (PRICES: DEFINITELY ON THE MORE EXPENSIVE SIDE, BUT EVERYTHING IS AMAZING QUALITY AND WILL LAST A LIFETIME. I TEND TO BE OKAY SPENDING MORE MONEY ON TIMELESS PIECES BECAUSE THEY DON'T GO OUT OF STYLE) 

For my online shoppers:

  • Revolve (I get most of my formal attire here) 
  • Lulus (great prices, VERY AFFORDABLE)
  • Princess polly (great prices)
  • Lovers and Friends (ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE)
  • Jet Set Diaries (ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE)
  • REFORMATION (PRICEY, BUT THEY ARE HUGE ON SUSTAINABILITY AND PRIDE THEMSELVES ON BEING ECO-FRIENDLY)
  • 31 BITS (THE CUTEST JEWELRY, MADE BY WOMEN ARTISANS AROUND THE GLOBE. I'M ALL ABOUT THE FASHION FOR A CAUSE kind of COMPANIES)

FOR MY GIRLS WHO LIKE TO TRY ON BEFORE THEY PURCHASE:

  • Free people (always find something I love here AND LOTS OF AFFORDABLE PIECES, you just have to look)
  • Nordstrom (DO I EVEN HAVE TO EXPLAIN MYSELF? THERE IS SIMPLY SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE IN NORDSTROM)
  • For Love and Lemons (VERY PRICEY, BUT I AM OBSESSED WITH THE UNIQUE STYLES THEY COME OUT WITH. THEY ARE ALWAYS PUSHING THE TRENDS)
  • Stone Cold Fox (EXPENSIVE BUT AMAZING QUALITY)
  • Planet Blue (HAVE EVERYTHING FROM GRAPHIC TEES, TO JEANS, TO THE MOST INTRICATE DRESSES. ON THE MORE EXPENSIVE SIDE, BUT I ALWAYS FIND SOMETHING I LIKE WHEN I GO)
  • Show Me your Mumu (FUN PATTERNS AND LOUD PIECES THAT WILL HAVE PEOPLE STARING AT YOU AS SOON AS YOU WALK IN THE DOOR)

 

THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY SHOPS I BUY MY CLOTHES AT BUT JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITES. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC AND NEED SOME HELP ON WHERE TO LOOK!
