Exclusive online retailers are quickly becoming the fashionistas go-to way to stunt on a budget, and I have generously compiled a list of my current favorite stores. I shop for styles ranging between earth-struck alien princess to nu goth spook heaux. Unisex femme dominant fits are my favorite and while my gender presentation is fluid, my bank account is stiff, so my suggestions will almost always be affordable and obtainable.
My favorite online retailer, hands down, is PLNDR.com. They’re a members-only retailer that offers flash sales almost daily on exclusive urban designer brands; it’s impossible not to be obsessed. Plndr is perfect for people who love having the freshest designers but loathe the idea of spending $80 for a t-shirt. Make sure to check them out often and watch your email for even bigger savings.
