Top 20 Online Shopping Sites

Posted by Alexandra C. | Monday December 31, 201217 comments

Fact #1: I love shopping. 

Fact #2: I love getting a great deal. 

Fact #3: I hate crowds. 

Malls (especially on Boxing Day, nay, Week) are places of craziness that I avoid. The line ups and packed stores are too daunting. Just the thought of waiting in a hot store with my bulky winter jacket makes me cringe. 

Like all of life's issues, the Internet has a solution. Thank goodness for online shopping. Gone are the days where you would have to get up early, get dressed and trek down to find good parking. I do all my shopping from the comfort of my bed in PJs and the stores are open 24/7!

If you're like me, you're making lists and planning your online shopping haul to take advantage of sales and clearance. So we thought we'd help you out by giving you some of our favourite sites to hit up. We wanted to show some love to the International chicks too, so we came up with 10 Canadian and 10 U.S. sites to visit.

You saved my money with this post istg 😂 Was looking non
stop for a new skirt for Christmas that wasn’t crazy expensive but exactly
what I was looking for and “GS Loves Me” had that! And it was on clearance! I
didn’t know about that website and now I do thanks to you. Thank-you so much
♥️🙏🏼 I smashed the subscribe button as well 😊

I agree
that consistency of content is important. Unfortunately, the possibilities of
responsive design lead away from that. Any tool or technique can be used in
an ineffective way.

If your site’s width is fluid, is it a responsive design? Yes. Sites have
been designed like that for years, and it’s a simple, fast, easy

When this new idea popped up, a lot of design already were providing a
different design for different browser widths.

This is a very good list of stores to do online shopping! Online shopping is great, it's a good way to buy clothing and not have to worry about the crowds of people in a mall. It's so easy and saves time. :)

I do a lot of shopping online. Especially from stores like Club Monaco or Banana Republic where they have good return policies, or I can take it back in store. I find malls exhausting. I prefer to do most of my shopping when I'm away on vacation. It's part of the exploration of whichever new city I'm visiting!

I agree with some of the Chicks here... buying clothes and shoes online scares me. I had to order shoes online for a wedding because the bride wanted all the bridesmaids to wear these shoes she found ons ale on Beyondtherack. Thankfully they fit me ok but another girl in the wedding had to have them stretched a lot!

I also wanted to mention Etsy.com. Great sight for handmade and vintage items! :)
