Nov292016: Clothes Shopping

“where do u buy ur clothes? that flamingo shirt is v cute”

I don’t really shop in one place but if you want to copy my aesthetic I tend to buy from

Yesstyle : it’s an Asian-based online retailer so prices can go pretty cheap (plus over $40USD you get free shipping), but you have to be really smart about how you buy your clothes. I’d recommend mostly South Korean brands (like Dowisi and chuu, and you can see which shops/clothes have the highest ratings to give you a peace of mind). Not that great for plus-sizes. But for other things like makeup, skincare, and the little cute stuff like homewares and stationary it’s heaven on thrift wings.

Modcloth: pricier but if I had a million dollars this is where I would get most of my clothes from. Great for plus-sizes and other sizes.

Dangerfield/Princess Highway: an Australian shop with great outfits. This is where I got the Bat Print shirt. Unfortunately it’s quite pricey so the bat shirt is only one of two things I ever got from there. :/

H&M: not so much anymore but back then I used to get a lot of great dresses from there (Much of my wardrobe is stuff I got when I was 14 – 18). Some things will appeal to me from time to time.

Forever21: Same story as H&M, but worst since I don’t even buy from there anymore (partly due to changing taste and also no F21 in Australia). This is where I got the flamingo shirt, but that was 8 years ago and F21 no longer sells clothes with that kind of whimsicality anymore. It may have some good things though.

Uniqlo: They have tank top packs that feature really cute patterns. It’s generally pretty quality and you can get stuff like HeatTech (keeps you warm with more comfort/less layers) and AIRism (draws sweat away during the nasty summer days)

Other places: Topshop, Bershka, Zara, ASOS

Dang, I need to get some free clothes for my endorsements.
