Ladies, gals, women and chicas, I have a fashion public service announcement (eww, could I sound anymore valley girl?). I am for sure no fashion blogger, but I kinda like to shop online-(-because seriously, what mom has time to shop in the real world?!)--and know where my money is going. Whether you are aware of them or not, I have some online boutiques to share with you that you must explore with your own eyes. I really enjoy online boutiques as they are more personable, unique and often times the suppliers have handmade their items making them great quality and one of a kind. Here are four that I thoroughly enjoy browsing and drooling over.
1. RUCHE. A husband and wife (and dog!) team that started small a few years ago and has now grown into a successful independent online boutique full of indie designers, handmade clothing and accessories and reasonable prices on all of their items. Plus they have fun stuff for pets too!
2. MOD CLOTH Another online retailer run by a husband and wife team--high school sweethearts in fact. Here is a well put excerpt from their site "built on a foundation of love for vintage and retro clothing,
ModCloth.com is an online clothing, accessories, and decor retailer that
aims to provide a fun, engaging shopping atmosphere for you, our
customer. In just a few years, we've grown from our humble beginnings in
a college dorm room to "America's Fastest-Growing Retailer."'
3. LE MODE ACCESSORIES. Not handmade, but some darn cute and unique stuff!
4. SHABBY APPLE. Not handmade, but vintage bathing suits and dresses.....Lawd, have mercy!
So, there it is folks. My service to you :) Go check 'em out and support the independent boutique business and let me know which one you like the best!
Tomorrow I'll be back with a dump of i-phone pictures from our first week of summer!
