when you dont have the chance/ time/ money to hop over to new york, tokyo, hong kong, online shopping is the next best thing. a site i found out about through friends at school, called ZIPIA, is a great pit stop whether you’re just a girl/dude looking for new threads or a boutique buying wholesale. with thousands and thousands of great pieces to choose from, they come really cheap, and its all online- so you can stay and loaf on that sofa of yours, or never get out of bed. basically, someone at school always initiates a zipia round (over a facebook event) and we make a list of what we want and hand in our money to one person. that way the explosive shipping fees can be avoided, and if we get hit with customs- we can split that as well (we’ve never been hit yet). im in the process of picking out some clothes right this second, so ill post some photos when i receive them. there are also STYLE and TRENDY sections on the website, which is essentially super cute asians modelling the really well styled looks from which one can draw ideas.
