Online shopping is easily one of my favorite pastimes. I find it rewarding to weed through thousands of things to find the perfect item at the best price. Plus, there’s something so exciting about knowing you have a package in the mail; knowing I have a little present waiting for me to be opened! There are so many cute online boutiques that I thought I would share my TOP 4 favorite online boutiques!
My favorite place for my online shopping desires is definitely The Flaunt Shop. One of my favorite things about The Flaunt Shop is that there’s a little something for everyone! From preppy bow back dresses to pretty lace panels to the perfect pair of boots for Autumn, The Flaunt Shop has it all! It’s reasonably priced and offers fast shipping through UPS, which is complimentary on orders over $100. They also recently released a game day line featuring clothes and accessories in college sports team colors, and they are constantly adding new schools to the mix! Additionally, there’s a huge selection of all black and all white dresses. These dresses are perfect for recruitment and initiation and are cute enough that you’d actually wear them again! The other awesome thing about The FlauntShop is they are constantly expanding the line. For instance, I recently collaborated with them to start a California Collection which will feature edgier and a more laid back styles that are so popular in California—think Nasty Gal and Brandy Melville. After seeing some of the garments being added, I can safely say you won’t want to miss this one! Check out The Flaunt Shop on Instagram to stay updated!
My next favorite place to shop online is Tobi. With a slogan like “from California with love,” Tobi is a bit edgier in general, more nightlife oriented, and very trendy. Think American Apparel meets Urban Outfitters. If I want the perfect crop top, dress with a lot of cut-outs, or ultra high platform shoes, Tobi is my go-to. It’s also very wallet friendly since new arrivals are always discounted. Additionally, Tobi offers 50% off your first order for all new members. Shipping is lightening-fast, especially if you’re on the West coast since Tobi is based out of San Francisco. Tobi’s styles are a lot sexier in nature and definitely appeals to a college aged audience. They also post the cutest outfit ideas with their clothes on Instagram, so make sure to check them out!
Now this this one is a bit of a hassle, but if you truly want that dress you saw on Pinterest, it probably came from XeniaBoutique. Some of you may have seen my picture in the Summer Dress It Girl Trend Report of the white dress with the big bow on the back? Yep, that came from Xenia. Xenia is based out of Australia, so ignore the seasonal arrivals because you’ll just end up confused since their seasons are opposite of ours. The downfall about Xenia is that since things have to ship overseas, it takes a little extra time and all orders are $15 for shipping, so buy everything you want at once. I’ve also occasionally had issues with the way things fit or are made—the white dress arrived with a broken clasp, and two dresses in different colors of the exact same style and size ended up fitting very differently. However, I find it worth it because the clothes are just so darn cute. To get a glimpse of the most recent items, look at their Instagram.
Swanky Doll is near and dear to me because Stephanie, the owner, started her shop so she could stay at home with her son to work. Swanky Doll started out selling exclusively customized bows, like the ones featured on The Sorority Secrets a while back (Read Here). She offers bows in a variety of fabrics and designs including Lilly Pulitzer prints! However, she has begun expanding her line to lanyards, vanity trays, key chains, and more, all of which will be available in the coming weeks. Another great part about Swanky Doll is you can customize your bows with your monogram! Catch Swanky Doll on Instagram for their latest updates!
Happy shopping, everyone!
