Westchester Fashion Pros’ Favorite Websites
Where on the web do stylists, models, designers, and personal shoppers go for the latest looks at wallet-pleasing prices? Local fashion pros share their favorite bookmarks.
“Shopstyle.com has all the designers you want and tells you the stores or sites that carry them with the best prices. I got an amazing Gryphon Gypset dress through them.”
—Stylist Melissa Tomlin of White Plains
“For top designer items at really good prices, I like gilt.com. I’ve purchased things from there by Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs that I wouldn’t have been able to afford otherwise.”
—Model Shannon Rusbuldt of Yonkers
“Shopittome.com lets me select the brands, stores, price range, and sizes that I’m interested in and choose how often I get notifications. I recently bought a pair of Not Your Daughter’s Jeans through them that were about forty percent off the regular price.
—Image Consultant and Personal Shopper Scarlett De Bease of Waccabuc
“I love net-a-porter.com for its large selection of designer styles. And because they select different things than regular department stores, you get many more interesting looks.”
—Shoe Designer Gwen Frempong-Boadu of Pound Ridge
“Their super-fast free shipping and returns make zappos.com tops in my book. I’m also a huge fan of net-a-porter.com and their brother site, mrporter.com. Their pieces—like a dance-step-diagram-print Drakes London pocket square—are so well chosen that sometimes I go there just for inspiration.”
—Photo Stylist Kathy Kalafut of Manhattan
“Shopbop.com offers designer-brand and couture fashion in all price ranges, plus free returns and three-day shipping. And topshop.com is another favorite for fun, seasonal looks.”
—Image Consultant Tonia Tagliaferro of Harrison
