7 brands you should be shopping in that aren't Zara

When it comes to shops we love, you can pretty much guess our top picks: Zara, ASOS, Topshop, Zara again...you know the drill. But the Shopping fatigue is real. You know the feeling: it's pay day Friday and you're ready to hit up your favourite online and high street stores for some guilt-free retail therapy. Then it hits: You find yourself wandering the floor, sifting through the digital racks, and feeling completely uninspired. Hell, even the Zara God's aren't on your side. I'll tell you what, it's time to re-route your shopping habits.

Finery London

Think Zara, but luxe-r. Finery London was founded by former heads from both Topshop and ASOS so of course they absolutely nail all your fashion needs in one affordable swoop.

Weekday

Weekday is a modern and mindful fashion and denim brand offering that current, oh so diesirable Scandi style. Perfect for fail safe, hardworking wardrobe items.

Storets

You have probably seen every fashion blogger across the globe showcasing some Storets recently, but it really is all in good reason! With more ruffles and statement styles than you can shake a debit card at, this is certainly a one stop shop for the sophisticated to the playful.

Monki

The little sister to H&M, Monki has been taking over the UK since launching their first store ten years ago. With their playful take on prints, shape and texture, be sure to find something for everyone. Check out their even cooler #Monkifesto where they talk about their love and support for women around the world.

oh hey girl

My most recent instagram find, 'oh hey girl' is probably the internet's best kept fashion secret. Well, until now. Created by two girl bosses creating the ultimate curated collection of affordable, quality and timeless pieces that will prep your wardrobe for years to come. Be prepared to bookmark but in the meantime TAKE ALL MY MONEY!

Free People

Starting it's story in West Philidephia (born and raised), Free People has been helping people look good since the 1970's. From the floaty to the frilly, the structured to the simplistic, Free People will make sure you are the only one looking that fabulous at the party.

Pixie Market

Ok, ok, it's an American site and it'll take forever to deliver, but srsly? Just one look at their 'new in' section and it'll have your PayPal trembling. This is your new go to store for something a little big different, and a lot FASHUN. You're all very welcome.
