I know when we think about affordable fashion, especially as college-aged students, our minds automatically drift to stores like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, and online stores like Shein.com. Which are all great stores, don't get me wrong, but in my experience, the clothes don't last as long as they should, and it ends up being more expensive to continue to buy products after some of your pieces break, get worn out quickly, or the fabric lets you down completely. And on top of that, the pieces you purchase from those stores are the same pieces that hundreds of thousands of people have. What is the fun in that? I don't know about you, but I enjoy being unique in my fashion, while staying on trend. That is why I enjoy shopping at the places listed below (I even picked out some of the best deals going on right now!). While some of them are more pricey than say, Forever 21, the clothes last a long time and hardly anyone else has them, so that means you get a lot of compliments....don't lie, us women love getting compliments on our outfits.
