Here is a countdown of stores where a fashionista on a budget can shop to keep her effortless style up to date all season long.
8:  DSW:  This is a paradise for shoe lovers everywhere. This store has designer shoes for half the price but all the style. So when someone asks you where you got those shoes, you can proudly say DSW.
7:  Target:  I know what you are thinking: how can Target be a good place to shop? Truthfully, it is.  Target's clothes are more stylish than you think. They do collaborations with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, such as Jason Wu and Rogan. It's the perfect place to get your designer fix on a budget.
6: Vintage/thrift stores:  These places are stocked full of good finds from cute tops to the cutest shoes with things ranging from $0.99 and higher. You're sure to find that perfect piece for any outfit faster than you can figure out how much you're really spending.
5: TJ MAXX/Marshall's:  Owned by the same people, these stores sell name brand items for half the price. Come here to find your Baby Phat and your Apple Bottom for half the price of other stores.
4: Charlotte Russe: This is the perfect store to find your girly dresses. With a classier feel and most of the trends that you see on the runway, the girly girl in you will come out when you see how on the spot their clothes are, not to mention for less.
3: GoJane:  This is your go-to for cheap sunglasses, jewelry and the best designer shoe knockoffs you will ever see.  But let's not get into how awful their clothing selection is.
2: H&M: A fashionista's mecca!  This store is your "home" if you are looking for all the latest fashion trend  of the season.  They do collaborations with some of the biggest names in the fashion industry as well. Even though they come at a little steeper price, these buys are well worth it and are not the prices you would pay if you were buying it from the brand store itself.
1:  Forever 21:  This store literally has everything, from Bohemian to Rocker and everything in-between. With their cheap and chic finds, you're sure to walk out of this store with at least one or two purchases in hand.
