Guest Post: Best Places to Buy Accessories Online in AustraliaSaturday, August 18, 2012
In Australia, we’re pretty lucky because we have a great pick of accessories stores: Equip, Gloss, Diva, Lovisa, and Colette are just a few of the great and affordable places we can go to get our jewelry and accessories fix.
But how many times have you walked down the road and seen someone with the exact same piece of jewelry as you? It happens more often than any of us would like. If you want something unique and original, try a few of these online stores for your next accessories fix.
This Melbourne-based accessory company started on the streets of trendy, bohemian inner-suburb, Fitzroy and grew to supply major chains such as Myer, David Jones and Sportsgirl with jewellry and accessories. The website offers a huge range of exclusive accessories, and even have a section for jewellry that fits current trends (right now it’s pastels, neons and brights, and Aztec), which is useful if you want to keep up with fashion. When items go on sale – which is often – prices plunge to $5-$15, and there is free shipping, so it’s both fun and affordable.
Filled with tons of unique, handmade goodies, Etsy is the perfect place to search for unique items – anything from candles, to pillows, to laptop cases – but especially jewelry and accessories. You can either search the site for what you want specifically through the search bar, or browse through the categories listed on the side of the home page. Since there are so many people making and selling stuff on the site, there’s sure to be something to catch your eye.
This online store is for the geek at heart; whether you passion lies in maths, science, or even popular culture, Think Geek has something for you. There is nothing more funky and original, in my opinion, than wearing a few geek or nerd-themed accessories, and to find them, you need look no further than ThinkGeek. You’ll find their range of jewelry and accessories under T-shirts & Apparel, where they stock a myriad of quirky items ranging from an 8-bit hair bow to the Master’s pocket watch from Doctor Who. They recently started stocking Wonder Woman and Batgirl nail art stickers, which I think is pretty cool.
Along with shipping, the total cost of your buy may be on the pricier side, so you might have to choose between paying for your computer finance or these geektastic accessories. I’m sure you’ll make the right choice.
The Internet is a veritable treasure trove of original accessories. Now that you know where to shop, you’ll never have to suffer seeing another girl on the street wearing the same necklace as you again. Happy shopping!
