Picture this: you take a hard-earned vacation to a faraway city. You spend a day shopping and while you are out and about, you find a boutique that you are absolutely smitten with. Sadly, when you return home, you discover that the boutique does not have its own online destination, which means that shopping at that boutique is now just a memory from your vacation. Sound familiar? If so, let us introduce you to Meinto.com, a brand new online shopping concept that we think you will love.
Meinto is one of the largest shopping sites in Europe and has just recently opened a dedicated site for American customers. So, what is so special about the site? Meinto works with local brick-and-mortar boutiques to bring their clothes online and introduce them to, well, the world. So that one-of-a-kind boutique you found while vacationing in Miami? It might just be one of Meinto’s must-try finds as well! For instance, have you heard of Joanna Paige, an accessories boutique in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami? Joanna Paige sells brands like BCBG, Elizabeth & James, Tory Burch, and Rebecca Minkoff, and they are just one of the boutiques that now sells its wares at Meinto.com. Another? What about Lady Lux boutique, a must-stop destination, also in Miami, that is known for its stylish separates and cool accessories? Well, Lady Lux is also now available on Meinto.com.
Given that Meinto has such a wide variety of boutiques, you can be sure that there is something for girls of every style and every budget. In fact, there are over 800 brands to pick through—and they include denim labels like 7 For All Mankind and J Brand, high-end labels like Emilio Pucci and Valentino, and contemporary labels like House of Harlow and Mara Hoffman. And if you are the type of girl that likes to walk into a room knowing that you are in a one-of-a-kind dress, you’ll be pleased to know that Meinto stocks a wide variety of vintage pieces, thanks to its partnership with several high-end vintage boutiques. As for your budget, you will find dresses for $30 and you will find dresses for $3,000—so no matter where you are on the spectrum, you are sure to find something you can afford.
