Window Shopping at US Urban Outfitters Online

Last month I online window shopped the UK Urban Outfitters (-no, I didn't end up getting any of those items,) so I decided to do the same for the US site. Boy I tell you, the US UO has a way better selection of clothes at very decent prices. I'll try not to rant too much about the much cheaper prices in the States compared to the UKs.

I love this dress, especially the pink and teal-coloured ones. It's not exactly unique and it really reminds me of the early Rory Becca and Lauren Conrad designs but that's why I love it. It's simple, colourful and looks very versatile. I imagine it would be fantastic for many occasions in the summer. Plus, it's made of chiffon and looks like it's worth the 48usd price tag.

Even I think this dress is boring, but if I still had to go to school everyday, then this would be a great throwing-it-on-in-a-hurry piece. And judging from the photos, the dress provides a good canvas for the accessories to liven up the outfit if you feel like it.

I really liked this dress when I first saw the photo although now that I stare at it more, I'm liking it less. Maybe it's because the design's actually more interesting than the plain dress above. But anyhow, it looks like a fun dress to wear during daytime. And it somehow reminds me of Lauren Conrad too. Oh gosh, why does everything remind me of her?

Even though this dress is really not my style, it just looked too pretty for me not to post it. I can imagine Peyton wearing it in One Tree Hill.

Barneys Girl recently emailed me about this shirt and I love it! It's got small flowers all over the pattern but it's nice in that it doesn't look fussy. The design is clean cut and looks easy to wear. I find it so hard to find pretty blouses like this because most of the high street designs are there are either too boring or has too much detail on them. But this one is just right. I want a red one!

I've always related Urban Outfitters to graphic tees -that was one of the sources for its original success right? Anyhow, I'm a fan of most white tees that have simple or black and white designs on them and these fit the bill. I especially like the scribbled tee -it's all about the designed messiness!

I've been looking for a mid-waisted, structured mini dress for ages. There are loads of black minis out in shops now but they're usually not structured or skintight. The slight A-line silhouette this skirt has is so much more flattering.

I've been looking for simple, long necklaces in the UK Urban Outfitters and found nothing. This necklace (from US UO) is exactly what I'm looking for, and it's so affordable at 18usd (although I would probably wait for it to go on sale.)

All this imaginery shopping is making me want to go to the States just for UO!

Wow. Maybe it's because I'm from the US, but Urban Outfitters is more of a "ooh. pretty." type of thing for us middle-classers. I for one do not have the money to buy almost anything from UO (which never has good things on sale in the stores btw) Sadly, I can only stare at that 18 dollar necklace and go "ooh," because 18 bucks is wayy to much for a cheap, metal necklace.

I personally love Urban Outfitters and lovvveee their shoes. I do agree that some of the items on Urban Outfitters are a little pricey... but I always look at the online shop for sale items and find some good deals.

It's not always that easy to shop at UO even in the US. The closest one is a two hour drive; I don't shop online so it's window-shopping for me unless I happen to be in Chicago or Austin or Madison or some other university town. I usually can only afford an accessory or something on sale. Their stuff is cute though and you know it's usually on trend. I have noticed they are expanding though, with new stores popping up in places like Milwaukee, Nashville and Durham, NC.

their sales in store definitely do not compare to the ones they have online. I rarely see great deals in store unless I search really hard and most of the stuff they have are on sale online much faster.

I love UO, especially their dresses. I don't shop there as often as I would like because there isn't one close enough to me. Not to mention I buy most of my clothing from Forever 21.

You're right about the UK/US prices - before airfares got so ridiculously expensive it was well worth popping over to New York for a shopping trip

I bought the dress in navy blue instead of teal, white/silver or red. I really like the dress b/c it is very simple and chic. I'm not sure if the urbn.com sells the dress in navy blue since I bought it in spring.

I fully agree with you about UO prices, it's almost reasonable in the US but not so here in the UK! I was in there today and even the sale stuff is overpriced...

UQ has got fabulous clothes and I do make it a need to stop over place whenever I head down to the states. I'm addicted to pretty things and have been running my daily style dairy on my blog for awhile already. When i read the posts you gals make... you seem to echo a lot of similar sentiments fashion-wise! So great to find like-minded gals.

I love Urban Outfitters - their clothes are quite afforadable, and they have a lot of basics.
The color block dress is so cute, and I love the minidress as well.

..In fact, I've been looking for a plain, long necklace as well. I guess I'll go check out thier store, then!

I actually don't like UO much....maybe it's cause I've never actually been to a store, just looked online. But I don't love their clothes. Some of their bags are alright...
