Being a college student who lives on her own, I do not have a lot of extra cash to spend on high priced clothing that will be out of style in 6 months. I have searched and searched for the best deals, quality and pricing on everything from clothing to shoes to accessories. Anytime I need a nice dress or a simple pair of jeans, I always find something that I love-that is also within my budget!! The following tips and websites have proved to be the most beneficial for myself.
A while back I stumbled upon 15dollarstore.com, where-you guessed it- everything is 15 dollars even. They have all sorts of jeans, pants, skirts, dresses (formal and casual), shoes, shirts, sweaters, swimwear, jackets, and outerwear. You can even find plus sizes and a few mens items on this site as well! I have purchased many sweaters and tops from this website, and they last longer than any similar name brand item I have ever bought!!! And they always have a quite large selection in each catagory, so there is most likely an item for everyone on here! In addition to the great quality and selection, the shipping is also modestly priced and very quick even as a standard shipment! The one drawback that I noticed was the lack of being able to track a shipment, even though I always had it within 3 or 4 days at the most, I could never tell where it was at-I think they may be working on adding this feature soon if they have not already!
Another great website for clothing at rock bottom prices: forevertrendy.com. You can find all kinds of trendy dresses, gowns, jeans, skirts, shorts, and various tops. Some of the cheaper dresses run around 10 to 12 dollars, and you can find accessories for a few dollars a piece. I have never personally ordered anything from them YET, so I cannot speak about their shipping and handleing.
I found this next site through Seventeen Magazine in a fashion section: amiclubwear.com. While this is a higher priced site than the other two, they have an AWESOME selection of clothes for the wild side in anyone. I have found tons of great party dresses and dirt cheap high heels.... but they have a balance of nice conservative items as well. If you like make up and funky false eye lashes-you will find several fun pieces to add some flair to your evening look! i have ordered a cocktail dress from this site, and my BF bought me a white bandage dress-both of great quality for less than 25 dollars. Another plus; the shipping is reasonable and fast!
Another higher priced site-DHstyles.com- has beautiful dresses and tops, while they are a slightly more costly, you can still find a nice dress for under 30 or 40 dollars. I just recently happen to discover this site, so I do not know much else about them.
Lastly, for those of you out there who LOVE a variety of shoes-but just cannot foot the bill of designer duds- check out shoeocean.com or makemechic.com. Shoe Ocean, of course, simply has vast amounts of womens boots, sandals, high heels, platforms, wedges, pumps, and casual shoes. Most shoes are under 30 bucks but I have never seen a pair of shoes over 45 dollars. They even have bridal and prom shoes! Makemechic has a variety of shoes and a selection of clothing, swimwear, and intimates. Both sites have gorgeous products and are sure to have something that any girl would like!
Outside of discount sites for accessories, shoes, and clothes; keep your eyes peeled for sales at your favorite stores- I love to catch all the sales at these websites: WetSeal, Victorias Secret, alloy, and deliahs. If you sign up for their e-mails, you can score free items, shipping, and huge discounts! By becoming an Angel (victorias secret credit card holder) I get points for anything I spend at the store or on the site-and get perks for being a memeber! Not to mention that they are always having sales on their website that could save hundreds. I am constantly buying from this website (on sale of course), and have gotten nothing but quality, and fast shipping!
