Designers & Shops I Heart

This is an ever-expanding list of some of my very favourite places to shop, or places that I WANT to shop. I may not have purchased from every single one of these, but they all have at least one thing on my Fatshion I Desire list and i’m sure you will find plenty of pretties to spend your precious pennies on!

If you think i’ve missed something important, let me know! I love finding out about new designers and boutiques! And feel free to also check out my page of Current Lust Haves to shop my style and for a few other names and delights that are currently purchasable!

[ This is kind of an epic list, so feel free to jump to whichever category you’re most interested in… ]

Edgy Indies, Witchy Gurl, Street Wear, Vintage/Retro/Pinup, Contemporary/Office, Swimwear, The Big Ones, Jewellery, Shoes & Accessories.

These display boards are by yours truly, and are just some of my favourite images, to give an idea of the brand’s aesthetic. I cannot guarantee these pieces are available right this minute.

REDRESS

ReDress is a groovy online boutique (and brick & mortar just outisde Cleveland, Ohio) that stock a lot of fashion forward pieces, and a carefully curated selection of vintage that is sortable by size (yippee!). The website is laid out into heaps of easily-navigable categories (including a “Masculine & Butch Style” section – heck yeah) and they also manufacture “Teggings” – a hybrid of tights & leggings, and I can personally attest to their comfort and rad colours! ReDress = short for kicking all the goals.
