I was just wondering what places people shop at that aren’t super expensive. I love to dress up and look nice but i can’t afford designer clothing.

I shop when there is a sale. Like summer sales are nice, after christmas is the best imo.
H&M doesn’t let you down when it comes to cheap.
Also buying online saves me alot.

Patience and planning is key, not so much the shops themselves.

have you tried stores like ross and tjmaxx? they have name brand clothes for cheaper! i agree with everyone else though, the key to getting cheap clothes (other than forever 21 and h&m) is patience and to look for coupons and good deals. i sign up for emails for stores that i like and wait for sales and you can usually find good steals. when august comes around, a lot of summer clothes are 75% off at a lot of stores so you can get them for cheaper!

Just to reiterate what everyone’s been saying..sales sales sales! Also, if you live in a good area, places like goodwill seem to have hidden gems of greatness. I live near a couple college campuses and I swear to goodness, college kids’ donations are fabulous.

After that, have you tried Lulus? If you like shops like Modcloth, they have the same designers often for cheaper. Also shopping indie designers, on etsy or at my favorite Spottedmoth, can get you good deals and you’re helping!

Hope this aids in your discovery!
Happy shopping!

H&M and Forever 21 are great stores, besides Target and overstock places like Ross and TJ Maxx. Thrifting is also a great way to go, but I’d go by Lauren Conrad’s rules in her book, “Style”. Also, try joining mailing lists like “Hautelook”, and grab inspiration from high end-meets-low end style blogs, like Dulce Candy.(dulcecandy.com)

I have added some basics to my wardrobe with clearance items from Coldwater Creek in their outlet section- and with on line coupons I actually got some of the outlet stuff reduced 50 % off! Good for classics.
I also save money by adding accessories to my old wardrobe for a new look.
I work for a website for clearance for a women’s accessory designer. www.shopicl.com

Marshall’s (Still has a Lay-a-way),TJMaxx, and ROSS.
JcPenny has an AWSOME clearance right now! They have that Mango collection as well…and because it was overpriced in the first place…all the clothes have price adjustment stickers on them as well as some items on Markdown!
Old Navy for your basics and I also shop thrift!

I say look online for looks that you love and print them out…shop different stores till you find similar pieces and rock them like you just spent $5000!

Fashion DOES NOT mean ya have to break the bank!!!

I love nastygal.com, although they can be little pricy sometimes,
I love modernmilieus.com too, and they are having a summer sale these days.

definitely marshalls and stores like that, just got juicy couture jeans 50% off! H&M is nice but sometimes the european sizing doesnt match up. Forever 21 is good if you have enough patience to look through everything! dont look for quality there. I’ve had to repair many clothes from there especially crappy zippers. At my mall we have a store called Francesscas which seems like a little boutique but is actually a chain. They have tonss of dresses, shirts and jewelry thats awesome. For online I usually stick with lulus but also look at francesscas online shopping. If you want designer things, saks fith ave online usually has some pretty good sales.

TJMaxx and Marshalls. Sometimes even Target. You just have to be willing to sift through a lot of clothes.
