10 Best Online Shopping Sites I Wish I Knew Earlier

10 Best Online Shopping Sites I Wish I Knew Earlier

Nowadays, it seems like a lot of items (e.g. books, electronics, and office supplies) are bought online more than they are in stores, mostly due to the convenience of it all. There is one department, however, where traditional shopping is still king: clothing. Indeed, when people want to go to the mall, they’re usually going for one reason, and that’s to check out the sales at all of those trendy designer stores.

So here’s a question for you: why don’t more folks buy their clothes through online shopping? Is it because they need to try them on before they buy anything? Or is it because they are unaware of some of the cool sites out there that offer an amazing selection of popular clothes? It’s probably a mix of both.

So let’s get down to business. What are a few of the hip-and-happening clothing websites out there that you’re probably currently unaware of, and what makes them unique? Read on to find out…

1. eShakti

eshakti (1)

    If you are worried about finding clothes that fit well online, then eShakti is likely the shop for you. One of their cooler features is that they allow you to customize their garments so that they align with your exact measurements, all for a low flat rate of $7.50.

    2. Shoptagr

    Shoptagr

      Shoptagr comes equipped with a bunch of unique tools that can assist you in your quest to find the perfect outfit. For instance, it allows you to save the selections of over 600 designer stores and create your own personalized clothing collections using their chrome extension (which means you can access them on any of your smart electronic devices that are connected to the internet and buy them when the time is right).

      Creating a personalized collection through Shoptagr also has a functional purpose as well, because if any of the items you have listed there go on sale, you’ll promptly receive a notification from them (ensuring that you don’t overspend on that dress you’ve been eyeing for the past few months).

      3. Forever 21

        If you thought that Forever 21 was just a store you could visit in your local mall, think again. It actually also has a great online component that allows young adults (their target demographic) to browse the latest trends. Best of all, they’re not overly expensive either. Also, since you have likely been to a Forever 21 in person, and tried on their clothes, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what will fit you when purchasing items online.

        4. 10 Dollar Mall

        10dollarmall (4)

          Like the name suggests, this site offers all kinds of stylish clothes for under $10. You really can’t beat that!

          5. Deb

          Deb (5)

            Deb’s claim to fame is that they offer an incredibly wide variety of sizes, giving both large and small folks the opportunity to have access to the latest clothing trends. If you can’t find it in stores, it’s likely they’ll have it here.

            6. Necessary Clothing

            Necessary Clothing (6)

              The goal of this site is to offer clothes that girls feel are “necessary,” so you’ll always find a broad, cheap selection of apparel here. Based on what I’ve seen, this is the site you go to if you want an outfit to wear for nights out.

              7. Plasticland

              Plasticland (7)

                If you’re into all of the crazy styles offered at your mall’s Hot Topic, but don’t want to be seen hanging around a bunch of 15 to 25 year olds, then Plasticland is for you. Using their site, you’ll be able to order all kinds of eccentric clothes and shoes from the comfort of your own home.

                8. Choies

                Choies (8)

                  Before you ask, no, I didn’t forget the “c.” That’s really the name of their site! What makes Choies unqiue is that they offer a bunch of offbeat novelty/artistic clothing that you can use to show off to all of your followers on social media. Great for those who like to stand out in a crowd.

                  Advertising

                  9. Romwe

                  Romwe (9)

                    Romwe is sort of a mix of a traditional and offbeat clothing store. You can find a lot of trendy things there, as well as some more artsy selections. Their best feature however is that they offer free shipping worldwide for all purchases.

                    10. ASOS

                    ASOS (10)

                      ASOS is cool because they offer contemporary and vintage styles for both men and women. But, perhaps best of all, is that they offer a special deal for college students. That’s right: if you’re currently attending college, all you need to do is sign up for the ASOS on Campus promotion and you’ll receive a 10% discount on all purchases. If you purchase a lot of clothes, that 10% can really add up over time!

                      So there you have it. Ten great sites that can jump start your journey into the world of shopping for clothes online. If you’ve got any sites that are your favorites, or have had good experiences purchasing your wardrobe online, let us know in the comments below!

                      The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

                      The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

                      Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

                      your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

                        Why You Need a Vision

                        Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

                        How to Create Your Life Vision

                        Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

                        What Do You Want?

                        The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

                        It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

                        Some tips to guide you:

                        • Remember to ask why you want certain things
                        • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
                        • Give yourself permission to dream.
                        • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
                        • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

                        Some questions to start your exploration:

                        • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
                        • What would you like to have more of in your life?
                        • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
                        • What are your secret passions and dreams?
                        • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
                        • What do you want your relationships to be like?
                        • What qualities would you like to develop?
                        • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
                        • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
                        • What would you most like to accomplish?
                        • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

                        It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

                        What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

                        Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

                        A few prompts to get you started:

                        • What will you have accomplished already?
                        • How will you feel about yourself?
                        • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
                        • What does your ideal day look like?
                        • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
                        • What would you be doing?
                        • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
                        • How are you dressed?
                        • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
                        • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
                        • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

                        It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

                        Plan Backwards

                        It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

                        • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
                        • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
                        • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
                        • What important actions would you have had to take?
                        • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
                        • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
                        • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
                        • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
                        • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

                        Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

                        It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
