We may not being buying women’s fashion for ourselves (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but we are experts in gift ideas and a total game changer for us was being introduced to Shopbop. Not sure of who they are? Don’t sweat it, either were we. That is, until our shopaholic sister gave us a heads up that IBBB was missing out on a goldmine. Here’s everything you need to know about them and, yes, it’s officially time to up your wardrobe game.
We’ve been in the gifting game for years now. 5 to be exact. And so many of our female readers love to shop at places like Anthropologie, hidden gems like Everlane, and of course the athleisure gold standard of Outdoor Voices. But our recent data is showing that more and more are venturing out and shopping online at Shopbop. Basically, if you’re looking for some amazing designer clothes, shoes, accessories, and handbags – but don’t want to pay full-price and don’t want to look like a carbon copy of everyone else out there this is the place to check out.
And speaking of checking out, they were acquired by the geniuses at Amazon (of course!) so you can even sign in with your Amazon account, utilize Prime where applicable, and enjoy free shipping and free returns all the time. It really doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
Now don’t get us wrong, not everything is super cheap. These are some top designers after all. But at least you typically won’t have to pay the full and original price. Plus, so much is usually in stock and if you’ll typically luck-out when it comes to finding some the most sought after trends of the season.
From what our reader feedback provided, it seems like everyone is pretty obsessed with the designer shoes they carry. You can snag the latest flats, pumps, booties, slides, sandals, sneakers, and just about everything in between. And you’ll love some of their designers and brands, too, like: Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Maison Margiela (their perfume is amazing), Veronica Beard and, literally, dozens more.
If you’re tired of shopping at the same old place and are ready to try something new, we highly recommend to give Shopbop a whirl. Totally worth it.
The Deal With the Deals:
Here’s the good news! Since they’re owned by Amazon you know there are going to be some pretty amazing sales and deals taking place. And you won’t even have to wait for Black Friday or Cyber Monday (although that’s a great time too). Outside of their ginormous fall sale, each day there are some awesome markdowns on new arrivals, must-haves for the current season, sneak-peeks of next season and more. On average we’ve found that you can actually save around 35% from their original price. Score! Check out all their current sales here!
To Gift or Not to Gift:
The answer to this is a loud and proud absolutely yes! While they have their own gifting section for some great ideas, we’ve put together a short gift guide below on some unique presents for some of the most unique people on your list – just to get you started.
- Girlfriend – Go with any of these best selling earrings – See it here
- Daughter – Go with their top rated sneakers – See it here
- Mom – Go with any of these amazing candles – See it here

And while you may not think of Shopbop has a go-to for tech stuff they actually have some really cool tech accessories too. Think things like phone cases, AirPod cases, the coolest bluetooth speakers and more!
The Deal With Promo Codes:
We hate to break the news to you but, no, Shopbop doesn’t hand out coupons or promo codes. They do have a section of their site dedicated to them so we recommend to check that out because from time to time they may have an exclusive offer you’ll want to know about. See their promo code options here!
While we don’t have any coupons here (we wish!) in the past we have seen that if you sign up for their newsletter you can get 15% off your first order – which is pretty great. And their free shipping and free returns offer is always amazing. Free shipping we can totally appreciate still, but free returns is where it’s at!
