FINDERS KEEPERS: SHOPPING WEBSITES WE LOVE

We’ll be the first to admit it: we’re busy, and we often don’t have the time to devote an entire afternoon to shopping leisurely and eyeing fab window displays. Sometimes, we’re on the hunt for something specific, or in a need-it-now kind of mood. In those moments, we turn to our other favorite shopping destination: the Internet. Thankfully, new websites abound these days to help connect us shopaholics with exactly what we’re looking for – and in some cases, at a discount. For those fashionistas who are also fiscally savvy and busy keeping an eye on their bottom line, this is a win-win. Our own research indicates that 62% of women say they plan their clothing purchases, according to the Cotton Incorporated Lifestyle Monitor™ Survey, which means an arsenal of go-to websites can only help. Below, a few of our favorites. Where do you turn when you’re shopping online?

Hukkster: Frankly, we’re a little disappointed we didn’t come up with this idea ourselves, because the premise is genius. Save items in your size to a wish-list, and Hukkster emails you when they go on sale. That’s it. So when those distressed cuffed boyfriend jeans you’ve been eyeing suddenly drop in price, well, you’ll be first in line.

TheFind: Researching prices online has possibly never been easier, thanks to TheFind.com, which lets you search for products across different websites to track the best price. Sign up for an account so it can track your previous purchases – and then suggest items just right for you.

Trendabl: It’s always fun to check Instagram or Twitter to see what our fashion-forward friends are wearing. Trendabl one-ups that, by making it possible to shop the look. Color us impressed.

Fancy: Love Pinterest, but want to shop more? Try Fancy, which has a similarly clean aesthetic but is more closely geared towards e-commerce. Discover beautiful things, save them to a wish-list, or buy them – all in one easy place.
