Well known in the crafting and creating community, Etsy offers anyone the chance to set up (virtual) shop. It's a smart place to shop when you know exactly what you're searching for, and the deals are unheard of. A handmade silk charmeuse gown for under $200? Sign us up.
Shopping for cult-favorite Vivienne Westwood at your local mall is all but impossible (if you can find it, we wanna know where you're shopping!) Searches like that are why we love the web's amazingly edited e-commerce sites.
Super shopping sites can provide a variety of styles and pieces hard to come by unless you're in a large urban area. Note designers you see credited in magazines and try searching them on sites like La Garconne to see what else strikes your fancy.
Another reason to click through—stylish dot com's are like walking through a beautifully collected closet or house. We love finding small treasures, like this simple candle from French brand A.P.C., that we never would've seen before.
Beat your world-traveler friend who's constantly coming back from exotic locales with major steals. Artsy and minimalist site AREAWARE is tightly curated and contains gems like this felt necklace made in Australia.
