Being as I am a college student, that usually brings with it a low bank account status, although a girl can dream every once in a while! In my spare time, I love to surf the web and find cute online boutiques and shops with my favorite styles in hopes that one day soon I can push that beloved “add to cart” button and add to my growing closet collection (although it is growing a little bit slower than I would like). Today’s post will specifically focus on everyday clothing, but I do have my favorites when it comes to swim and activewear as well. That could mean a separate post in the near future, so keep a look out for that!
Here we go in no specific order, first up:
Showpo is an Australian based clothing line that I discovered not too long ago. It is one of my ALL time favorites and I definitely recommend! It is a tad on the expensive side but so worth it if you are willing to save your money for it! Again, they are based in Australia so shipping is more expensive and can take some time to get into your mailbox, leaving you checking it every five seconds like I tend to do. Australia fashion is ahead of the game as I have found myself constantly looking into tons of different boutiques and online shops based there. Here are a few stunning pieces that I have managed to get my hands on and into my closet:
No, the nectar that I am talking about does not make bomb acai bowls and juices, but they do produce adorable clothes at fairly affordable prices! This cute little boutique hits close to home for me, literally! Nectar clothing has multiple locations in Southern California including: 3 stores in Redlands, 1 in Claremont, 1 in Laguna, 1 in Irvine, 1 in Temecula, and my ALL TIME favorite, the store in Orange! I discovered Nectar late into my high school years and it is definitely my favorite store to actually go into and shop because not only is the stores content phenomenal, the stores location is even better! It is located in The Orange Circle and is a great place to spend a couple hours with friends whether that is sitting around drinking coffee, eating amazing food, and/or finding great finds in their local antique shops! But for real, lets get back to the clothing! Here are a few pieces that I was able to add to my closet collection or will one day be added hopefully:
3) NEM Fashion
NEM fashion is another new one for me! NEM stands for Natalie Eva Marie, and if you know that name, you know that she is apart of the WWE and is apart of the show Total Divas. Natalie Eva Marie owns the line alongside her co-owner, Janet Tran. This brand is said to be inspired by “empowered women, for empowered women”, in other words, it is a brand that can create a confidence within women to make them look and feel like their absolute best selves. I have yet to purchase from this store but it is definitely one on my to-do list! Here are a few finds that caught my eye:
American Threads is another great find that I recently found so I have yet to get some of these gems in my closet, although I can’t wait until I get the opportunity! This brand has stores in areas such as Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, and Alabama, but was originally founded in Atlanta and then branched out from there. This store is definitely full of trendy items that I cant wait to get my hands on! Here are a few items that I found:
5) Last but not least, Dress Up
I discovered Dress Up when I was in Tennessee for an Acrobatics and Tumbling meet and we had off time to explore around Nashville. When I went into this store I wanted to buy so many things, but again, my wallet just wouldn’t allow it, so I had to try desperately to hold myself back. The store is full of cute and trendy clothes that I NEED in my closet. This is another store I have yet to actually purchase from, but by the looks of it, I know I wouldn’t be disappointed. There are 18 locations, the first in Georgia and expanding from there. The brand prides itself with offering new styles continuously to keep their customers satisfied. Here are a couple of items that I found:
Here are a few other sites that I feel deserve to be recognized as well!
