One of the hardest things to do with kids in tow is to SHOP. Therefore, when my boys were born I started a lot of online shopping (much to my husbands chagrin). I have become quite this expert at it, if I do say so myself...
Here are some of my favorites:
www.ideeli.com - this is a “members only” site (you have to be recommended by a friend and sometimes there is a wait-list to join) but they have great deals on name-brand items that are over stocked. I have gotten a great watch and scarf from this site.
www.victoriassecret.com – remember, it’s not just for underwear! Their clothing she shoes are AWESOME!!!
www.bananarepublic.com – this site will direct you to not only Banana Republic but also Old Navy, GAP, Piperlime shoes and Athleta (which has the best yoga-wear out there). It is very handy to be able to search for what you are looking for and put things in your “shopping bag” from all of these stores at one time! Plus a flat-rate shipping fee of $7!!
www.shopittome.com - this site is great because you can put all the brands in that you like and it will periodically send you emails (you decide how ofter) with deals (extra percentages off on already reduced prices) from great stores like Banana Republic, Old Navy or whatever store/brands you are interested in.
www.dsw.com - their store ROCKS too!
Many of the above sites have free shipping and free returns. Lots also have shoes for people with wider feet or hard to fit sizes. You can search my size width, color, style and many have reviews on the shoe that you are deciding upon.
