My new FAVE brand... MONKI!

For the past week I've been bed ridden and bored out of my mind. Armed with an ipad and a supply of fresh air via an open window, I went on an online shopping sprgazalangee. This was not your average, I'll start some online shopping bags that just turn into wishlists... this spree was full out I have to get all of the things because I need them, and need to qualify for free shipping. Being sick was whatever when I had my credit card and the infinity of possibilities the internet held for me. For all the bad luck I had in my illness, I more than made up for in the freaking ~*scores*~ I finalized and am currently *obsessively* tracking on UPS.

I started my spree by opening up about a million tabs. Curious? Here are my favorite online stores:
(Some are real life stores too... but ain't nobody got time for that)

1. ASOS
2. NASTY GAL
3. ARTIZIA
4. REVOLVE CLOTHING
5. PULP VINTAGE
6. TUNNEL VISION
7. KARMA LOOP

...and um urban outfitters and forever 21... because we all have our weaknesses.

I started the search by targeting anything Cheap Monday, but got bored pretty quickly because everyone is slacking on updating Cheap Monday merchandise and is instead selling, selling, selling it. That's right everyone, Cheap Monday is actually kind of cheap right now because it seems like most online stores are clearing out the old to make way for the new. Unfortuneately, when this sort of thing happens, cute stuff goes fast and all that I was left to browse was the unwanted out of my size stuff... lame. So my search went on... and into uncharted territory.

Asos, is currently having a SUPER SALE, with stuff up to 50% off, WOWZAS! Lucky me! This super sale consumed me for hours and surprisingly, almost all my tabs turned into Asos tabs! Seriously, check this sale out, things are going fast... asos deletes your shopping cart every 60 minutes, and I was culprit to a few of my selected products selling out as I was looking... sad. Asos, did not fail to amaze though, not only are they a stand alone brand, they also carry a lot of European brands, and they convert the currency for you! And have free shipping, both ways!! Asos has introduced me to a lot of brands that do not personally ship to the states, or change boat loads to do so, including MONKI!

For real, clear your closets out for this brand. They rep the simple street chick with an edge, with basics and more psychedelic pieces. They also have plushies... I am a sucker for plushies. I decided on a cable knit cropped black sweater that I KNOW will be my go-to piece for fall. It's weird, I only bought one thing from the Monki brand... but it's just because I know everything that's good in life is worth the wait (ex. waiting for Netflix to load), and soon enough Asos will carry more of Monki's fall line, which I am about to be ALL OVER.



Please check out their website and explore into the Monki TV section... it is wayyy too cute.

Happy shopping,

Meet the sweet and beautiful Alyx Dale. Her closet is straight up to die for, my jaw just fell out of my face over some of the beautiful things in her possession. She plans to move to LA soon, and I can only guess that she will do something amazing, watch out for her.
