Today on the blog discussing quality places to shop. I consider Zara, H and M , and LuLus fast fashion; while we all love trends, we also need to make sure that we are buying and filling our closets with quality pieces as well.
You don’t need to be a millionaire to look part; it’s all in how you pick out clothing and put them together; looking good does not have to cost a fortune.
I’ve put this list together to get you started; I am always on the hunt for new and emerging brands and websites.
I have linked some of my favorite pieces from these companies down below.
I love this brand because they have beautiful knitwear. It is an up-and-coming brand, so not everyone knows about it. Their knits are well made and give you a beautiful shape. I have 2 tops and 2 dresses from them.
If you are looking for quality knitwear and something not everyone will have, Pixie Market is the place for you.
BEWARE: their stuff sells out fast (but they do have wait lists).
This brand is perfect if you a are looking for a special occasion dress.
I have many tops and dresses from this company and I get compliments every time I wear them.
& Other Stories
I got a lot of my sweaters from this brand and most of the time on sale.
I’ll keep this short and sweet; yall know I don’t wear pants, but people have been raving about these jeans. Fellow YouTuber Scoutthecity did a recent haul with several pairs, and she was talking about how much she loved her booty in them.
If you are looking for a great pair of jeans to try, check this brand out.
They have beautiful knitwear and jackets.
I can still remember back in 2017when I discovered this brand my girlfriend and I were at lunch, and we wanted to go shopping. I walked into the store in Texas, and instantly I fell in love (not to mention they had xxs and 00).
I love this brand because of the quality and their sizing.
If you are looking for quality basics that will last years, this company is it. I have several pieces from this company including 5 sweaters and 5 skirts, what can I say, when I love something, I buy multiples.
Their pieces are all cotton , all wool, or all leather.

If you are looking for quality knitwear and jersey tops and dresses, this company will suit you perfectly.
They do cut-outs beautifully. Yall know I love a good cut-out or backless dress, and this company does it so tastefully.
Their jewelry is beautifully crafted, quality, and sustainable.
Their mission ” Using recycled materials whenever possible. And 100% carbon and water neutral from cradle to grave. Bringing joy and inspiring impact.”
You can shop knowing you are being conscious as well getting a beautiful piece.

This brand is a step up from the previous brand mentioned. They have beautifully made jewelry, including gold vermeil, 14k pieces, and even sterling silver.
I chose this shoe company because the pair of shoes that I bought from them are all leather, even the sole is leather.
In 2022 you would be lucky to find a pair of all leather boots or pumps under $500.
While ShopBop has premier designers and is considered contemporary and luxury, they have a section on the website for pieces under $200, and I have found some pretty dresses in this section.
When you have a moment, take a look!
