In a world of H&M, Zara, and thousands of amazing online shopping sites, there is simply no excuse NOT to be fashionable. Gone are the days of pining after Fall’s Top 10 and being unable to reproduce them on your own because you lack a celebrity salary. If you haven’t already discovered the host of “fabulous-girl-on-a-budget” opportunities out there, consider me your Fairy Godmother. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite daily addictions.
I have had an obsession for a while now with a site that changed my (fashion) life, bringing the hottest styles to my fingertips…literally. Get those digits moving, and visit asos.com ASAP. This UK-based company brings you over 34,000 lines (you read that right) at virtually all price points. As an added bonus, the site is super user-friendly â€” you can search by the usual category, designer, color and trend, but you can also set a scale for minimum and maximum prices to be displayed. Hallelujah! No more sifting through $600 to-die-for (but out of the question) items to get to that $100 jacket. Oh, and shipping is free both ways! Take that, Zappos! Check out some of my fave finds for Fall’s top fashions.
1. Menswear – I adore that I could wear these to my casual office AND for a night out.
ASOS MIKEY Leather Weave Detail Flat Shoes $50.55
2. Faux Fur Accents – the PERFECT addition to the must-have capes and ponchos of the season.
ASOS Long Fantasy Fur Snood $33.70
3. Leather – a pleated mini hits this trend right on target – a sweet touch to a badass look.
Kookai Panelled Leather Flare SkirtÂ $166.82
4. Camel – a classic that our mothers wore, this color evokes fallen leaves, apple cider, and pumpkin spice lattes.
ASOS Hooded Military CapeÂ $126.38
5. Capes and Ponchos – ideal for a crisp fall day.
ASOS Contrast Trim CapeÂ $107.84
Let me also introduce you to a few sites that feature premier-brand, private sale boutiques daily. Each sale is only available for a brief period of time, so you gotta act fast. The best items can sell out rather quickly, so don’t hesitate to “Add to Cart” if you see something you love because all of the sites will put items on “hold” for you for a given amount of time. Although if you’re crazy about it, buy it right away. These private sales also feature home decor, discounts on hotels and vacation destinations and more. Trust me, once you sign up, you’ll be obsessively awaiting that daily email that reveals the day’s sales. Welcome to heaven.
Those three are my go-to’s, but I have also had luck with:
Now that you’re equipped with the tools to find the top trends on a dime, you must commit yourself to never give the excuse that you can’t afford to be on trend! Happy shopping!
