I know you mentioned you like graphic tees, so a site I really like for cute and quirky stuff would be Look Human. It's a touch on the overpriced since since it's a lot of novelty stuff, but even I would probably cave and buy something with a cute sailor moon print on it. ASOS , ugh, I have such a love-hate relationship with this site. Honestly all their stuff and brands are A1. The ASOS self brand isn't shit and I actually love a lot of their styles and the pricing is totally reasonable.
That being said however, I still amazingly came out on top after that because the sale and coupon code combo I used was just that good. I've ordered from them before and I never remember being hit with such a crazy duties fee so maybe it was because my order was massive in both size and cost.
So that being said order at your own discretion. I personally probably will order from them again because I love the selection of items they have cries. I order one thing at a time on ASOS or just enough to reach free shipping and I avoid all customs fees.
I can't tell you how ecstatic I am right now!! I feel so stupid for not thinking of this myself. Thank you so much! Little Burgundy are surprisingly good for shoe sizes. The only place i found Doc Martens in my size!
I have big feet so I feel you on the sizing issue. That aside I actually also got a pair of JC Litas here two years ago too. Of all places, I couldn't believe they had it.
I just find Little Burgundy a little frustrating sometimes. Because they change the names of the type of shoe to something completely different, sometimes it's hard to search for shoes of a specific style you want. Someone asked a similar question about Canadian online shopping about a month ago in Simple Questions a great place for this type of question , and this was my reply:.
The Bay - they're always having sales and generally stock quality merchandise. Simons Quebec department store, if you're unaware - I mostly like them for cheap and on-trend accessories, socks and tights, and cute lounge wear. Remember that duty does not apply to anything manufactured in North America, which is why there's an extra charge on Everlane silk produced in China , but not their tees produced in LA.
Basically I hate paying duty on top of shipping and the exchange rate, so I outright refuse to do it. Yesssssssssssss, and it's awful: I don't know if I want to stop there again: I think Canada Post is hit or miss.
Tho I've had a couple parcels go missing in transit, I've contacted them, requested a replacement, the replacement is sent and arrived, then Boom! For those wondering how duties work on shipping from outside Canada: I have had really good experiences with Rickis, not super cheap but they have sales often enough, shipping isn't much either and obviously a Canadian company so no duty or exchange to worry about.
Rickis is my fave. That and Cleo, they're basically like sister stores and they always have regular significant sales. Rickis has a slighter more formal aesthetic but I think Cleo is still business casual too.
There's a site, shopstyle. The exchange rate between Canada and the US is nuts right now so I refuse to order anything outside of Canada. You can sort items by type but also brand, etc. I have found it to be quite helpful: For more expensive items I like farfetch. Boathouse, I shop the shoes section think Converse, Vans, sandals etc. My wardrobe is mostly business casual, so I shop from: I really like Suzy Shier and always had good service there, especially with business casual clothes. I've even gotten some modcloth-esque stuff there that didn't fall apart after a few uses like modcloth usually does to me.
