retail therapy (noun): an addictive high similar to the one experiences while smoking crack cocaine, but as a result of a purchase, often in the form of clothing, jewelry, or other wearable items, and intensely magnified when said items are on sale. (Example: Macy's is having a 20% off sale and I'm stressed; time for some retail therapy! YOLO!)
My weakness is usually jeans (Hudsons) and shoes, but I've found two new addictions that help me look better and feel better about myself - Workout Clothing and Lingerie!
Both of these items are usually crazy expensive, resulting in only a few purchase over a year and only when one doesn't fit or it's been washed so many times it needs to go in the trash. Two websites I found let you FILL your closet and dresser drawers with the latest styles WITHOUT putting a major dent in your wallet!
First up we have Ellie, a website dedicated to the cutest workout clothing I have come across. From bright bold colors, to crazy prints; anything you wear from them is a fashion statement! The great thing about Ellie is they have a subscription based program called The Fit Fashionista Club.
What this entails is:
- You can choose any two pieces each month for only $49.95. No matter if you want two tops, or two bottoms or a combination of both.
- Free shipping on all orders, no matter how often you order per month. This means you can order other items at regular price and still get free shipping (and free returns if necessary)
- Priority access to the month's collection. Club members see the collection before non-members.
- Exclusive access to limited edition pieces, Flash Sales, exclusive discounts and other, members-only events.
- If you don't like any of the pieces in the collection, you can skip the month at no charge.
For the lingerie, I've found AdoreMe This site has a wide selection of sexy lingerie pieces that fit like a glove! There's all kinds of styles, from bras and panties, sleepwear, corsets and they even have swim suits in the summer! I absolutely LOVE that they have collections dedicated to those that are larger on top! (This means you, DD, E, F, FF, & G!!!)
AdoreMe has a VIP program that works similar to Ellie's:
- Get a personalized showroom on the 1st of each month. You’ll receive a seasonal selection of lingerie handpicked by their stylists to fit your fashion
- Any lingerie set is only $39.95! You can purchase any style on AdoreMe for $39.95 (save up to 50% OFF retail)
- Every 6th Set is Free! Get a free set each time you reach 5 purchases, anytime you buy! (no need to buy 5 items at once).
- Always Free shipping and Free exchanges!
- Skip ANY month free of charge
