Online shopping can get overwhelming at times. There are so many things to consider and the worst part…Shipping! For some reason it always seems to be double the price of the item you’re ordering. When shopping online I look for three things: shipping, duties, and of course if it ships to Canada! After I have figured this out I start to search for the bargains that make shopping online worth my while and wait! With this comes three rules: always, and I mean ALWAYS check the sale section, second rule; always filter the category you’re looking at by picking the max price you’re willing to pay, and rule three don’t have any specific items of clothing in mind… this always leads to you paying more money than you originally planned! Here is a list of online stores that have great products, and amazing deals!

Beyond the Rack: This site is amazing; it functions on the concept of flash sales so be prepared to buy fast! This website is great because it’s Canadian, and best of all shipping is only $8! They carry name brands, and sometimes offer 80% off of certain events! They also carry beauty products, and items for your home. I recently got a straightner and blow dryer set for $30 that was originally $160… Talk about bargain!

g1 g2 This website is international and works off the flash sale concept! Shipping is $9.95 to Canada. They carry multiple brands, even ranging to Christian Louboutin. They are so unique because they replicate the feeling you would get when shopping in a designer store; items get reserved once you put it in your bag and they only carry so many units of each item making you feel super special and unique.

About Mackenzie Cammisuli

I’m just a girl who adores fashion. I love to browse online, wander in and out of stores as if I’m in an art gallery and truly get lost in the art of creating clothes.“I bought a Vogue instead of dinner. I felt it fed me more.”(I’m a huge fan of Carrie Bradshaw) Is probably the description of my life, with a dash of sass! Follow me on Instagram @kenziecamxo
