where to find unique clothes

hey guys :) as promised, fashion post today. maybe another one later on if i get to it?

i don't know about you, but sometimes i just get sick of seeing girl after girl (or boy after boy, for that matter) plastered in a shirt that says "ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH" or "HOLLISTER". sometimes, i just want some unique-ness. so how can you find clothes that no one else will have?

my style is boho, indie, and vintage-esque. thus, the clothes will be of these types.

you've got a couple of options, actually. in this post, i'm going to focus on stores, but there's always thrift stores (and of course, you can make them yourself!).

first store might be a bit of a shocker, but...

that's right guys, forever 21! the sheer amount of clothing in a forever 21 store is enough to guarantee that your clothes will be relatively unique. while forever 21 has some adorable shirts and pants, i find that their real strength lies in their skirts in dresses. they have the cutest vintage inspired skirts and dresses there, and everyone will be shocked when you say you got it for $20 from good ol' F21!


oh my god, you guys. i absolutely adore this store. what it is, is a couple of really unique pieces being sold at affordable prices online. the best part? the store has only one of each item to offer, and most of it's vintage, so what are the chances of someone else having it? this store is amazing- you need need need to check it out :)

modcloth is a vintage-inspired clothing store, and they have some amazing pieces. the stuff truly is one-of-a-kind, and you're really not likely to see anything like their stuff anywhere else. modcloth can definitely get a bit pricey, but if you want a nice staple piece, look no further!

urban outfitters is on the more hipster-side of my style, but it's still one of my favorite stores. their clothes are so cool and different, and you're sure to always get compliments on them! urban outfitters is also a bit expensive, and their quality isn't the greatest, which is why i love to hit up their sales.


ruche is a cute little indie clothing boutique that's quite similar to modcloth, except that they're much much cheaper. they also have a nice "indie" section to their website, where you can find adorable accessories :)
