Cheap Chic - Bargain Hunting
Since I'm a highschool student, my wardrobe consists of mainly "cheap" items. I have to save up for awhile to buy high quality designer clothing. Right now I'm saving up for a cashmere sweater.

But here are some of my favorite cheap and chic finds. Have any to add yourself?

Classic trench with a twist:

Pretty pink flats:

Reminds me of Marilyn Monroe:

Floral summer dress:

I buy cheap, as well.

I gear towards classic, timeless items - and am very careful with the way that I wash items to ensure that they last a while.

My favorite "cheap" places:

Forever 21
Express
Rue 21
Charlotte Russe

So many of my clothes are from Forever 21! Since super trendy clothes go out of style as quickly as they come in, I love shopping at Forever XI where I could look up to date but not blow money on stuff I wont wear in a few months.
This also leaves me money to invest in good quality classics like black cashmere sweaters, classic leather pumps, and wonderful coats.

Seeing fabu clothes like this for such great prices makes me never, ever want to spend big $$ on clothes. It's like "What's the point?" Love the pink flats and I'm totally a cardigan girl. Adorable.

love the pink flats...
I love getting a great deal, just as much as buying high end pieces (if not more ).... if the quality, look and fit are good, why not?!
My friend introduced me to forever 21 and I love the things I've found there, although digging and navigating through the store can be rather tiring and frustrating

i love forever 21! they had the most adorable dresses there..

im also a big H&M fan and zara..mango is also great..
only downside of H&M and such is that a whole bunch of people own the exact same stuff from the same store..so its a lil awkward

aaargh, I want to love H&M... I know so many people who find great stuff there all the time, but I can never find anything! perhaps it's the sizes?
I also got some nice, supercomfy flip flops from Target recently

the problem with H&M is that in a day, everything is practically swept away and all the crap stuff is left..
the 34, smallest size, is a little too big for me (im really small ) but occassionally im lucky..

i got the best lace top from there..along with the cutest pale yellow jacket..everyone was like 'hey is that miss sixty?'
