Today’s Tip: Visit Stores You Normally Wouldn’t
So probably your inner fashionista isn’t exactly hyperventilating with anticipation as you wait for the new collections to unveil at Payless and Kohl’s. But honestly, I doubt I’m the only one who has found something super cute that everyone in the room is asking, “Where did you find that?!” — and are shocked when you say something implausible like Forever 21.
Seriously, if you look hard enough, you can find stylish pieces (perhaps mix and match a cheap sweater with high quality boots?) for a considerably lower cost than if you’re on a strictly Nordstrom–Neiman’s shopping regime. So check out places you might not normally go to: Target (don’t forget, they’re still hooking up us fashion slaves with their amazing, affordable diffusion lines from America’s hottest designers, the latest being Jonathan Saunders and Sigerson Morrison, both of which I personally LOVE), H&M (which will be launching their Comme des Garçons line in just a few short weeks — don’t even get me started on how excited I am for that one…), Old Navy, and Baker’s.
