Got a girl crush on: Caitlin, Lulu, Rumi & Shini
Those exorbitant eBay and PayPal fees may be a thing of the past with the rise of blog shops popularized by your favorite fashion bloggers. These fashion AND business savvy gals are now offering up their wares for sale on corresponding blog shops to clean out their covetable closets. Yes, it’s true–you can now own some of the very pieces you’ve seen styled by your favorite internet gals!
These are my favorite picks of the litter:
A Clapping Ritual Shop (Caitlin): Do you like Rachel Comey, Lyell, smart brogues, feminine rompers and menswear-inspired pieces? Then A Clapping Ritual’s Caitlin is your gal. My personal favorite of the bunch, I’ve wanted to buy pretty much everything she’s ever posted on her shop (I’ve bought two so far).
Shoes and Your Mom (Lulu): Lulu from Lulu and Your Mom’s shop serves more as a consignment store for fashionable gals from around the world, but you can occasionally find Lulu’s edgy pieces on the site as well. What started out as mostly a site for shoes has blossomed into a booming shop (about 5-10 new pieces for sale each day) that offers everything from Alexander Wang bags to hard-to-find H&M and Topshop dresses–you never know what’s coming up next!
Shop Toast (Rumi): You can’t talk about the internet and fashion blogs these days without mentioning Rumi of Fashion Toast fame. I’ve seen her post items in this shop after seeing her pose in them just a few weeks prior on Fashion Toast. Expect to find some flashy vintage pieces and tall tall tall heels.
Park & Cubicle Bazaar (Shini): Currently on a summer hiatus, Shini from Park & Cube’s a high class girl with some high class taste. She’s only sold shoes in the past, but the selections have been more like pieces of art than simple footwear.
