11 Online Stores That Won't Break The Bank (For Guys And Girls)!

Budget friendly and cute? Yes, please!

Whether you're a guy or girl, I’m sure as a college student you are on a pretty tight budget. However, just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean that your wardrobe has to suffer! There are plenty of websites that offer great steals on clothes, shoes and accessories for every guy and girl.

1. Target

While not super cheap, Target usually carries trendier pieces at a fraction of the cost of local boutiques. Guys and girls alike can grab basics like tees and jeans, or ties and maxi dresses for a night on the town! Don’t forget, they also have plenty of accessories and shoes to offer.

2. Tobi

This may be more geared toward the girls out there, but this site has tons of dresses (both formal and casual) at reasonable prices. They also have awesome accessories that will complete any outfit, whether you are heading to class or a formal event.

3. LuLu’s

Prices can range from rather low to sort of steep on this site, but there are certainly many options whether you’re looking for everyday pieces or dresses and shoes for the next cocktail party you’re invited to.

4. H&M

Quality may not be superb, but prices are rather reasonable and this is a one-stop shop for both guys and girls. They have separate sections for guys and girls with trendy pieces dotting the shelves. Whether it’s a basic tee or a cute pair of shoes, H&M may be the place for you.

5. Forever 21

Again, the quality may not be up to par with boutiques, but if you're looking for trendy pieces, Forever 21 has a nice selection of clothing, shoes and accessories to make an outfit complete. They too have a men’s and women’s section. Also, don’t forget to look for free shipping qualifications.

6. TJ Maxx

People may frown upon deals, but if I can get designer pieces at a fraction of the cost, I am going to! No coupons needed on this site! Whether you're looking for some jewelry, a winter coat or a pair of shoes, there is so much for you to browse on this site.

7. Marshall's

A very similar concept, Marshall's also has many deals and steals to offer that you can easily make a wardrobe and shoe collections out of pieces from this site.

8. Venus

This is more for the girls. Venus has some really trendy and cute pieces (including bathing suits!) that won’t break the bank.

9. Gojane

This site has plenty of clothes, shoes and accessories that won’t break the bank. Whether you’re looking for a cute dress or comfy sweater to wear to class, you’re sure to find something.

10. Kohl’s

While this store may be something that moms love, I have no shame in saying I’ve found some awesome deals on this site. Men and women can find things for their closet, shoe collection or home at a fraction of the cost, plus there are always coupons for Kohl’s.

11. Boohoo

Girls and guys alike can find some fashionable steals from this online store. Sales and new pieces are frequent on this site, so don’t miss out!

There you go! A nice, well-rounded list of websites to browse for rather inexpensive pieces to fill your closet without emptying your wallet. I have purchased items from some sites but not others, so definitely look at reviews and shipping costs before purchasing. Happy shopping!

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

5 Inexpensive Websites For Summer Clothes

If you are looking to online shop for your summer closet, check out these stores.


Summer is here and so is a whole new category of fashion; high waisted swimsuits, mom jeans, graphic tees, chunky sneakers, and many more styles that have become popularized in 2019. If you are trying to save some money while keeping up with the latest fashion trends, online shopping on the right platforms is a great way to get the most bang for your buck!

Listed are the five most cost-effective online stores that each have their advantages and disadvantages so you can spruce up your summer lookbook. The best way to get the most clothing items on these online stores for the cheapest is to search for promotion codes online and take advantage of any email sign up deals, student discounts, and general sales they are currently promoting.

1. Zaful

If you are looking for a very cheap option so you can put the most in your cart, Zaful is your best bet. This store is stocked with everything under the sun including swimsuits, tops, bottoms, jewelry, shoes, hats, and more starting at 4.99. Zaful offers 15% off of your first order as well as free shipping for orders over $49, so you can fill your cart with more items than you think you are paying for.

2. Nasty Gal

Nasty Gal is a great store for quality items that will live a very long life in your closet. Although the prices seem high at first glance, the online platform has constant deals occurring such as their current 50% off everything sale as well as their 60% off everything for students sale. Nasty Gal is a great brand to build your closet essentials due to the great condition and material of their clothing items.

3. Pretty Little Thing

Pretty Little Thing is a great online store to shop for summer events because of their beautiful dresses and tops. I recommend purchasing occasion wear from this brand because a lot of their loungewear and regular items are overpriced for what they are worth. In the sale section of Pretty Little Thing, you can find many dresses and dress pants for over 55% off. If you are looking for a few fancier outfits for summer occasions, check out the sale section of Pretty Little Thing to get some nice looks for cheap.

4. Misguided

Misguided is an online store that has a unique vibe in the clothing they sell that is worth a browse because of their eccentric and fun styles. The platform has recurring sales that range from 25 to 50 percent off, which allows you to get twice the amount that you pay for. If your style includes graphic t-shirts, oversized t-shirt dresses, and good quality loungewear, Misguided offers great quality items with low prices to spruce up your summer outfit aesthetic.

5. Boohoo

If you love rocking matching sets and co-ords, look no further that Boohoo for the best patterns, styles, and prices. Boohoo usually has a 50% off sale going on, which goes a long way when you can purchase a matching two-piece set for as low as $20. Although Boohoo sells beauty products and accessories, their sets and outfits are the best items to get your money's worth in quality and quantity.
