Alternative Clothing Shopping Guide

Alternative Clothing Shopping Guide

I love alternative clothing, and I love shopping, so it stands to reason that I love shopping for alternative clothing. Unfortunately,  I do not live in a large enough metropolitan area to have much of a selection around here. Sure, there’s a Hot Topic, but Hot Topic rarely does it for me. So I tend to order online.

I can’t be the only one who is constantly forgetting that awesome site I saw last month with that one cute dress. I also can’t be the only one who gets frustrated when a brand doesn’t have their own retail site, and instead has to prowl around the internet, trying to find a store in my country, or with reasonable international shipping, that sells a particular item in my size. So, I’m making a list. Not just to help myself remember, but to help others find that brand, item, site, or five like it.

If there’s a brand or store missing that you feel belongs here, please let me know here
