I can’t remember the last time I shopped for my holidays. Can you?
In a few weeks, a few countries are now opening their borders and we will be able to start travelling again. I have been meaning to write a post on holiday shopping for a while (as requested). Please see below a list of retailers where you can shop for your holidays.
Pretty Little Thing
I like Pretty Little Thing (PLT). The clothes are reasonable and if you’re like me – don’t like wearing the same thing too many times (I am trying to grow out of that habit) then it’s a good place to shop. They also have the next day delivery so when I am shopping for a holiday, I usually bulk buy a load of holiday clothes.
The only thing with PLT is that their prices reflect their quality sometimes. When I was at Coachella (2018), I went crazy with PLT and bought into their festival wear, wore a pair of their shorts and can you believe they broke on me!
I do love me some Zara. My friend has always said if you’re not a big fan of big labels – Zara is the place for you. Zara has pretty good quality and their sales! Let’s just say the sales are on another level.
The only thing I dislike about Zara is their website. The models are always bending all over the place so I find it difficult to see the full outfit properly. I would say the website, in general, is not overall friendly.
If you like lots of floral prints and bright bold colours this is the place for you. Anytime I get a chance to shop in Oasis or Warehouse I am so excited. I put these two retail shops together because, for me, they are quite similar. Another good thing about this place is that they have a good website which is presented with good modelling.
My problem with these shops they don’t seem to have any of retail shops anywhere close to other retail stores.
N.B Both Oasis and Warehouse are currently rebranding.
I know there may be some people that might read this and turn the nose up! haha! But honestly, I do love a good old buy at Primark AKA as P-Unit. I like Primak for basics, you know vest, socks etc. And to be honest with you they do have a few stylish items of clothing. As I mentioned before if you are someone that doesn’t like wearing the same thing twice and you want to shop for your holiday. Primark is the place to go – the clothes are very reasonable too!
The thing I can’t stand about Primark is that the shop is a complete mess! It is like sitting in a teenager’s messy room! To avoid the mess I usually write a list of things I want to buy and go at the crack of dawn when everything is nicely folded.
Asos saved me for my only holiday shop I was able to do this year! Hahaha! Asos has such a great selection of clothing and they even collaborate with so many other brands that you can select from. They also have a tool that allows you to be notified when an item has been restoked. It’s how I got my ski-clothing!
Only think about ASOS is they only are online! I would love for them to have an actual store.
I recently stumbled onto ISAWITFIRST on my holiday shopping last year and decided to buy a few items. Again, another reasonable online store for holiday shopping.
I can’t say much about them as I have purchased a few bits and bobs. However, what I will say is, they don’t seem to have a huge selection to choose from it all looks to me like it is tailored for college students – sorry!
And there you have it a few places to shop for your holidays. I am always discovering new retailers to shop for my holidays, so do regularly check back for updates.

This is a great idea for a post! Most (if not all) those retailers are so affordable aswell 🙂
