Ok, so even though my bank account is tapped at the mo’ (thank you very much Martha’s birthday night as well as Camel Lights), I still go shopping online fairly regularly. Mostly because I don’t have to leave the comfort of my home and I don’t have to get dressed up for shopping. Which, tangent: why on earth do some store clerks make you feel like crap for wearing anything other than nice clothes. I hate feeling like a total schlub when I’m just looking at some clothes. The male sales associates at Express are the worst. Anyway, I just wanted to throw in some recommendations for great online shopping sites.

  • Shoes.com – Oh, how I love them. They aren’t as diverse in selection as zappos.com (they provide Clinton and Stacy’s shoes on What Not to Wear), but they’ll do. And if you are a member of 24 hour fitness, there’s a nice discount there, too. Love it.
  • Urban Outfitters – I know, they are terribly “scene’ and “hipster” and trying to find any size that is normal is beyond futile. Apparently every male who shops here is 26×30 for pants measurements. But, they have an awesome catalog of trendy clothes at pretty decent prices. Stay away from the Urban Renewal line of stuff. Why pay $60 for a used track jacket when you can go to Goodwill and get one for $1. Also, track jackets are over. Just sayin’.
  • OldNavy.com – They are smartly moving away from their family-friendly theme which is a good thing, in my opinion. The clothes aren’t exactly HUGELY fashion-forward (for men anyway), but they are generally classic and make for good foundation wardrobe pieces (button-downs, khakis and sweaters). They also have a business casual line that looks really sharp compared to Wal-Mart’s (and sometimes cheaper than Wal-Mart’s).
  • Target.com – This one is for the ladies; Target’s GO International line is fabulous. They bring in guest designers for limited time lines. Coming up, Milla Jovovich’s line. LOVE IT.

So, there you have it. My favorite places to shop online. Also, I should note that tomorrow is President’s Day and therefore a national shopping holiday. THE SALES! Oh, THE SALES! I’ll be heading out to Macy’s for sure.
