Shopping for Springtime

After a miserable three months of cold winter, spring has finally appeared in Blairstown. The grass has started to turn green and the trees are blooming with their pretty flowers. People are no longer bundled up in their thick winter jackets, but instead are preparing for Mr. Fortunato to announce “shorts season” to the lower classmen.

What does this mean? It means that it is time for us to buy new clothing for the warmer weather and update our spring wardrobe. Here are some places to find cute and trendy spring outfits:

  1. Revolve

Founded by Michael Mente and Mike Karanikolas in 2003, Los Angeles company Revolve recently became a billion-dollar fashion company.

Revolve is a very popular website that girls use to buy their skirts and dresses. It currently carries over 700 brands, and they add fresh looks frequently. In order to recommend products in the season, the editors regularly update Looks We Love, which is a list of clothing with featured themes. Recently, they updated Spring Destination, Spring Things, and Femme & Flirty, introducing dresses, accessories, tops, and skirts for the upcoming warm weather.  

Revolve also has free 2-day shipping within the US. If the product you purchased from Revlove is not what you expected it to be, you are eligible for a full refund if it is returned within 30 days of purchase. You also have up to 60 days after purchasing an item to exchange it for anything else on the website.
