My Favourite Stores

  Ariel from Chic Look xo tagged me to do this tag and since I love shopping it was pretty easy for me to do!  I'm extremely picky with where I shop so here are the stores I hit up first when looking for new clothes and accessories:

Aritzia: Canada is not known internationally as a fashion hot spot yet my favourite store ever is Canadian!  Unfortunately Aritzia is pretty expensive so I don't shop there often but I think they have the best styles and colour palette.  I'm very petite and they make clothes down to XXS which I really appreciate.  Aritzia clothing is also perfect for people my age as I'm still young but am wanting to dress a bit more grown up while remaining fashionable.
Online store: Aritzia

ASOS:  ASOS is basically the best thing ever and I wish they had brick and mortar stores.  Their styles are amazing, they offer petite, maternity, and plus size clothing in on trend styles.  ASOS also has a beauty store and Marketplace where you can buy hand made or vintage clothing.  Their customer service is amazing and shipping is free worldwide. Even though ASOS has a U.S. online store Canadians have to order off the U.K. site.
Online store: ASOS U.K. & International

American Eagle Outfitters:  AE is known for it's preppy style which is so not me but I actually think they have a lot of cute things.  Their sales are amazing and there are no price differences between their American and Canadian stores which I really appreciate.  Their sister brand Aerie also makes the best undies and pjs ever!
Online store: AE Canada

Zara:  I don't think I know anyone who doesn't love Zara!  Zara does the best designer knock offs ever and their clothes are so timeless and stylish.  They are a tad on the expensive side sometimes but Zara sales are absolutely amazing.  The Zara locations in the U.S. and the U.K. have way better selection than Canadian stores unfortunately :(
Online store: Zara Canada

Topshop: Where do I begin?  Basically I'm obsessed with Topshop and think wearing one Topshop item can make any outfit look amazing.  Back when I lived at home I would save like crazy and go over to Scotland 1-2 times a year (flights used to be cheap and I have family there) and go crazy at Topshop.  I have been waiting years and years for Topshop to come to Canada and they finally did in October 2011!
Canadian online store: Topshop @ The Bay
UK online store (Canadians can't order off U.S. site): Topshop U.K. & International

H&M: H&M started my obsession with fashion when they first came to Canada in 2004.  Although I think the quality has gone down in recent years they still have the best cheap finds.  H&M is always my first stop when I'm out shopping and I wish they'd hurry up and open an online store for Canada!

Urban Outfitters: Urban Outfitters is a tad overpriced in my opinion but I still love the style of their clothes and accessories.  They also have really cute home decor stuff and I've been able to grab some cute stuff on sale for my apartment.  Urban Outfitters totally rip off Canadians with their online shipping rates so it's best to shop in their brick and mortar stores.

If you'd like to do this tag please let me know in the comments or link your posts, I'd love to see where other people shop!

    1. I'm so happy they have an online store too. I find their clothing isn't displayed well in store and it's always busy.
