Shopping at smaller boutiques always adds interesting pieces to your wardrobe. If you hate to see someone else in your outfit I highly recommend shopping at boutiques. Smaller inventory means you are less likely to see someone else rocking the same slay as you. As much as I love shopping at boutiques it can be challenging to find items above a size 10. I love how the internet comes to the rescue and I can buy from online boutiques that carry plus sizes.
In the past, I had preconceived notions about online boutiques. The problem with an online boutique is, unlike a Target or Lane Bryant., you can’t try the item on prior to purchasing them. My other issue with online boutiques is the same thing with large retailers, there is usually a limited selection and maybe one or two skintight dresses made of what I like to call “stretch and fit” material that appears thin and unflattering.
I eventually challenged myself on my preconceived notions because I really wanted to add some more “unique” styles to my wardrobe. I looked for shops that offered extended selections beyond just club wear. I love having sexy options for evening but I was really looking to add some unexpected, fun, and sophisticated options into my spring/summer wardrobe. Plus, you miss 100% of all the shots you don’t shoot so I decided to take a shot and shop a few boutiques and I was pleasantly surprised.

Here are a few tips on online boutique shopping
- Don’t Waste Your Money. Look for Reviews!! All of the sites I mentioned above share and repost pictures from their customers. If you only see written reviews that are at best mixed and no interaction with customers on social media don’t shop with them. When I am shopping I type in the name of the boutique in google and see if you can find any reviews from other bloggers. A blogger will give you a more in-depth review on the product and have more pictures of the merchandise. You can get a closer look. If it seems to be too good to be true it probably is.
2. Know Your Measurements and Read the Return Policy! If you don’t have measuring tape please go to the dollar store now and buy one. Return policy’s matter. You don’t want to be stuck with a very expensive garment that didn’t meet your expectations. You will be double mad!
