Fact: As a Plus Size Princess, I will buy most of my clothes online.
Fact: As a fashionista I love having unique pieces that no one else is rocking.
The combination of these facts can lead to online quests for fun pieces and fresh designers. It also leads me to websites for stores outside of the U.S.
A few years ago, I was lucky enough to travel to London and bring home treasures from the plus brands there. I was so happy to bring back items that I knew no other plus size girl would have. I’ve also run into girls from other countries who come to NYC just to shop our plus size brands (the grass is always greener, I guess). Now I can get plus size womens clothing from Marisota, ASOS and Evans because they ship to the U.S.
But shopping online internationally has its own set of rules. I have to consider exchange rates, shipping and sizing among other things so I find myself doing a lot of lusting when I want to be buying. On the other hand, I see girls all over twitter ordering outfits from overseas with no hesitation, so maybe I’m over thinking things…
What do you think… do you order internationally online?
