Online Shopping Confessions

Well I suppose with all the Missoni for Target mayhem that has been going on lately {as in the last 24 hours}, that today would be just as good as any to divulge my latest online buys with all of you.

Living in Tahoe, there are not many retail options in town.  Don't get me wrong...there are several cute boutiques that fulfill the need to go out and shop...but I'm talking about the big guys.  We don't have Nordstrom, Gap, J. Crew, Target {gasp!} or anything of the like within a 45 minute haul from here.  So I often turn to the online world to get my shopping done.

Happily, Piperlime is only online which makes me feel like everyone else out there!  I can shop online and not be concerned about trying it on, like I would with a retail front.  Here are some recent buys:

Got this Patterson J. Kincaid tuic on mega sale {similar found here} and LOVE it!  Perfect for fall and it fits great.


Also got this Hive & Honey sweater on mega sale {link no longer available} and love it even more than I could imagine.  It has a great weight and it perfect with cut-off jean shorts or skinnies and boots.  Me loves.

Yes, I know summer is over, but I got these Steve Madden wedges for a great deal and I know I will just love them come next spring/summer.

Have you ever ordered from Piperlime?  I am always impressed with their packaging and attention to detail.  They really make you feel special.

I also recently embarked on an Express online run.  I used to work for Express...back in the day when they did not have a website.  They've definitely come a long way and I am always surprised to find out that certain items are from there.

Love this chiffon dress.  I followed the reviews {which I always suggest doing before buying} and everyone said it was HUGE on!  So I ordered 2 sizes down and while it fits, it is pretty dang short.  I'm debating taking it back for the next size up...or maybe I'll just wear it more like a tunic?

I saw this hot little number on several celebs the last couple months and again, could not believe it was Express!  And although this looks super tight-fitting on the model, it's actually more lose and casual in person.  Again...pretty short, but definitely ok for the weekends!

And then of course...there is Missoni for Target.  Everyone has already said everything that can be said about this limited edition line...so I won't drone on too long!  I stayed up until midnight, hoping and praying the sale would go live.  No luck.  Then woke up to the same headache of a crashed site.  Ahhh!  I was able to get on quickly to order these rain boots.  I am pretty excited about them...cannot wait to see how they are in person.  But of course, there are still so many items I would just love to have.  I *hope* that Target re-stocks our closest retail store.  Pretty please?!?  

Did you try to shop Missoni for Target yesterday?  Did you get anything good?  Do tell!

  7. What great finds!! I loooove those Missoni rain boots!! So glad you were able to get through the site to purchase them! I'm going to take my chance today to head to Target! Figured it would be too crazy yesterday! I'm hoping to get the adorable and cozy blanket!

  8. I'm so sad you don't have a Target! Or jcrew or gap! I tried on that dress at express and it was really big, but super cute! They didn't have a smaller size when I was there. I think it would be really cute with leggings and boots if it's too short. And yes, I did get some Missoni stuff yesterday at Target! I debated for so long about the rain boots...they were adorable in person so I'm sure you'll love them! I went to a smaller, less popular Target and was able to find some cute flats and high heels.

  10. Great finds! Shopping online is sooo good, yet sooo bad sometimes ;) haha. We're finally get target in the next year or so up in Canada, I can't wait! We can't even order online right now, so I'm living vicariously through you - love those boots.

  13. Ahh I've been eyeing those SM wedges all summer long! And now that they are on sale, of course they're out of my size. On my way to look on Ebay.. Also, everything now and then Express will have some really cute stuff, but MAN are they overpriced!

  14. Love your finds! I love, love me some online shopping. It's so nice to sit in the couch and browse, no? Piperlime is the best. And everything Missoni is gone in my Target too, I hope they re-stock!

  15. I love all your finds, especially that gogeous Hive & Honey sweater. Canada doesn't have Target yet so no Missoni for me. They're coming soon and I can't wait to get in on the action.

  16. Will have to check out piperlime! I hate shopping in the stores, even though they are easily accessible here. I would rather browse casually in my pjs! LOL Didn't even bother fighting the crowds yesterday for Missoni (I have 4 Target stores with in 10 miles of me!).

  17. I tweeted about this earlier, but I just didnt love the Missoni for Target line. Some of it was cute, but I wasn't head over heels for it. Is that blasphemous?! :)
    The rain boots that you got were the only thing I considered purchasing but the site was down and I couldn't make it happen. Your online purchases are fantastic!

  26. I've never heard of Piperlime, and we don't have ANY of the clothes stores you mentioned anywhere near where I live. We're supposed to get some Target stores up her in 2012 or 2013 - too late for the Missoni craze, though!

    Great looking pair of rain boots :-)

  27. great finds! I live in a large city and still love the online shopping, especially with free shipping both ways.

  28. Love your buys! Missed out on the Missoni silk scarf I wanted. It sold out too fast.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cute stuff! I think you should do more outfit posts natasha because I always adore them!

    I sadly was too busy on vacay in Vegas to get to a target. I went to my local store today and was super dissapointed with the barely there selection. I did get a scarf...the kids scarf! I felt kinda silly trying it on, but because I'm short, I actually like the way it hangs around my neck. I want more though! I really want the ballet flats and the neutral infinity scarf.

  30. Great buys! Pretty sure I NEED those wedges ;)

  31. You found some great pieces and I must say we share the same love for those steve madden wedges ~ I got the white at the beginning of the season and lived it them all summer! You will be obsessed!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ohhh I love that blue striped dress, and express!! Done and DONE!

  33. I;m a HUGE fan of Piperlime! Huge, Huge! And the reviews are always great so I follow them to the T. Great buys you made and I so wish that Hive and Honey sweater was still available!

  34. Adolescence is a time to gain your own fashion identity. Experiment with different styles to find the type of clothing that represents you best. Once you have figured out your style, look for fashion ideas in magazines, see what celebrities are wearing and look at the girls in your community and this is really a great update about fashion stuff for girls.
