As I mentioned in a previous post when it comes to fashion for me, frugal is the way to be! (Yes, that rhymes!) Being spiffy does not have to burn a hole in your pocket!

I recently did a bit of Fall shopping and I wanted to let you know of some ways to get already “affordable” mass market fashion for even less.

If nothing else, shop around and don’t buy ANYTHING at full price.

Finding an affordable yet trendy clothing store in your area will be your saving grace. In NYC Pretty Girl is a store that sells affordable unknown brands that still follow the fashion trend aesthetic of the moment. This can be a hit or miss because a lot of the clothes that they sell aren’t necessarily appealing BUT this is one of those stores that you should just check periodically to see what new items have popped up and how cheap they are.

What many don’t know is that Pretty Girl also resells clothing at a cheaper price point from large stores like Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, and New Look when they don’t sell out .

The majority of clothing that I’ve bought from Pretty Girl is under $10. Lately they have been marking up their clothing, probably for profit purposes, but if you wait out a good two months and the item is still around it will most likely be significantly cheaper. YES, cheap on top of cheap. There is no other way to shop in my opinion. Clothing pricing is vastly marked up no matter what the brand.

I will definitely go into more detail about how to be resourcefully spiffy in future posts.

Stay tuned!
