WFMW - Favorite Online Stores

Welcome to Works-for-Me Wednesday, everyone! Today, Shannon has asked us to list our favorite online stores.

Gifts
Uncommon Goods - a wonderful, quirky store that has lots of different kinds of gifts. I've been buying from them for several years (after hearing about them in Lucky Magazine). Never had a problem and you get to donate part of the purchase price to a choice of charities.

Red Envelope - the gift store that has something for everyone. Red Envelope can be on the expensive side, but I've found that if you need a gift fast, they are really great about rushing shipment.

Makeup
Sephora - my first, my last, my everything. Three free samples with every purchase. 'Nuff said.

Shoes
Aerosoles - I have a very wide foot, so this is usually my first place when looking for shoes. It seems like they have a new special every other day. Very quick shipment and easy to return.

Nine West - Beautiful shoes and great search parameters. Sometimes on the expensive side, so I use this site more as a "look book" to see what's in fashion this season.

Plus-Size Clothes
Lane Bryant - my go-to store. I'm in love with their suits. Good deals on underthings too. Recently, they've been pumping up their selection with more exercise clothes, sweats and maternity clothes.

Nordstrom - an unusual choice, as most of their plus-size clothing was horrible in the past. I believe they have new buyers now, so the cool factor of their clothes has been improving. I've been getting some wonderful cocktail dresses and summer dresses here. Plus, a great selection of shoes.

Jessica London - found this site while surfing Amazon a couple years ago. Generally not my style, but every so often you hit a gold mine of what you are looking for.

Old Navy - great casual clothes, usually pretty cheap.

Land's End - my destination for winter coats and bathing suits.

I don't really shop online. Mostly because I don't really shop at all. I do get some LL Bean stuff occasionally and lots of Williams-Sonoma though. My husband shops through Amazon all the time.

Oh! I love uncommongoods. They are just the best. I figure if I can't find someone a gift on their site, then they must just be hard to shop for!
