10 Depop Stores To Spend Your Money At Instead of Forever 21 If You're Trying To Avoid Fast Fashion

As I updated my closet this past summer I found myself in the same predicament I always do: I wanted to support small businesses and sustainable practices but I also wanted to spend as little money as possible and get free shipping.

I felt guilty as I secretly placed an order at Forever 21 and then hopped over to Shein and placed another order there.

As someone who advocates feminism and sustainability, it's hard to buy from these places knowing I'm benefiting the companies- and ultimately the people- who directly stand against these ideals.

I'm not going to lie, when I first downloaded Depop I was overwhelmed by all the sellers and products. Even after an hour of scrolling, I felt like everything was either too overpriced or way too small.

Once I got the hang of it and started adjusting filters and finding stores I liked, I understood what the hype was about.

So if you are like me and have no idea where to start here are my top 10 favorite Depop stores that offer a range of styles, sizes, and price-points.

1. The Dragon Lady

What I love about this shop is the emphasis on sustainability and the free spirit vibes. I ordered two pairs of vintage Calvin Klein jeans which arrived two days later and in compostable packing. You can get your next peasant top and lace camisole dress from here.

This store also offers a wide range of sizes and generous discounts on bundling.

2. Kubo's Kloset

"Wear what you want, when you want." If that bio isn't enough to make you purchase from this store immediately, then I don't know what is. From cheetah print jackets to colorful two-piece sets, this store has clothes for just about anyone.

They have great streetwear options and unique statement pieces. They also have free shipping which is a major perk.

3. Ashley & Hayley!!

As someone who is always looking for vintage pants, this store is the ultimate destination. They offer 15% off bundles and all prices are negotiable.

These pants are the perfect amount of oversized and aren't marketed towards any specific gender.

4. Unholygrailz

For anyone looking for an oversized and affordable vintage t-shirt, this store is the place. They have a plethora of graphic tees that will edge up any look. The best part is that all prices are negotiable and most are priced under $25.

5. 4/$20 Jewelry

Just as the name says, this store has a bundle deal of four pieces of jewelry for only $20. They offer custom, hand-made pieces for as low as $5. If you've been searching for the perfect pair of glittery avocado heart earrings, then this is definitely the place.

Also, 100% of the proceeds from BLM related items and 15% of total sales are donated to BLM organizations.

6. Get that Bag

@sydnixie via Depop

This niche store sells abstract hand-painted canvas tote bags that are cooler than any bag I've ever seen. All designs are original and created by the seller and are $25 and under and has free shipping.

You can also request custom pieces if you have a specific vision but are bad at painting like me.

7. Julessplace

For any of my mod and Y2K babies, this store is the place for you. From cat-eye sunglasses and puff-sleeve crop tops to denim vests and faded jeans, this shop has so many great vintage finds that are actually affordable.

If you've been searching for the perfect crop-top, Jules has it, trust me. The yellow aesthetic of the store makes everything pop as well.

8. Nomadique Boutique

@nomadique via Depop

If you love Dolls Kill but don't want to buy from Dolls Kill then you will love this store. As the bio states, clothing is a mix of grunge, Y2K, and vintage pieces.

There are cow-printed bucket hats, gummy bear necklaces, tiny purses, and flare pants. Almost everything is under $20.

9. Rachel Galen

@rachelgalen via Depop

This store is one of my favorites because it specializes in curating plus-size vintage pieces which is hard to come by on Depop. As someone who needs bigger than a size 30 in pants, I love stores like these that actually have inclusive sizes.

There are sweaters, tanks, denim shorts, accessories, and so many other pieces.

10. Hidden Gems Vintage

@genriquez via Depop

If you are like me, then you hate spending hours sifting through the stuffed racks at Goodwill to find the hidden gem. Whether that's an oversized denim jacket or a cool vintage tee from the eighties, this store does all the hard work for you.

While not as cheap if you were to look yourself, I would say these are still reasonably priced and you can get free shipping on bundles.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
