It’s only actually been since I’ve become a mother of two (and have absolutely no privacy or time to myself) that I’ve discovered the wonders and delight of online shopping. You can do it at home when the kids go to bed of course or with all of the new smart phones and mobile sites you can even do it on the go.
Now, being from Canada, we can sometimes come across some serious duty/tax issues when shopping online internationally that smoke you when the product finally arrives. You know how it goes… you snag a great deal and then booom – UPS arrives and you have another $50 to pay. Sucks. There are some Canadian Online sites but you just need to be careful and check the fine print before ordering.
Some of the places I’ve shopped online and can vouch for are:
- Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic Canada (all essentially the same store)
- Jacob Clothing
- Matt & Natt bags
- Aldo Shoes
- Piperlime (USA)
Places I habitually cruz and will try in the future are:
- Top Shop (UK) – trendy & alternative
- ModCloth (USA) – retro
- Anthropologie (USA – stores in Canada but they ship from the US)
Boutiques I’d like to try (and I’m looking for feedback from readers on) are:
