10 Places College Girls With, Like, $37 In Their Bank Account Can Shop To Look Like A Million Bucks

We all want to be trendy, unique, and cute, while not spending our whole budget on this weekend's outfit.

In college, the majority of us aren't working full-time jobs. Few of us are even working part-time jobs. With student debt accumulating, and internships rising, we are stressed. The pressure to fit in with our friends, look trendy, and feel attractive on the weekend or to that nice weekend luncheon with the girls becomes centered around our wardrobe and if we have something cute to wear.

From Game Day outfits to Girls Night Out, here are the Top 10 places to shop that won't break the bank while keeping you looking fresh for the Gram.

1. Fashion Nova

Oh yes, Instagram marketing ads and marketing at its finest! If you scroll through Instagram, follow any influencers, or go to the explore page, you will come in contact with this fashion website: Fashion Nova. Fashion Nova is great, as I just ordered my 21st birthday dress from their website for $24! Which, for a college girl, is pretty reasonable and beats department store prices!

2. Shein

Shein (sometimes called Romwe) offers literally the cheapest prices I've ever paid for clothes. I can spend $150 and have a whole new wardrobe overnight. From skirts to shirts, this website is a fast and cheap option when trying to change up your style!

3. H&M

Everyone pretty much knows about H&M and their magically low prices for clothes! This is another storefront with an online presence that continues to not disappoint!

4. Forever 21

AHHH our favorite store is going bankrupt! This means you should run to Forever 21 ASAP and grab as many deals as possible! This is a great way to get amazing fall fashion pieces for pennies on the dollar!


Amazon is the go-to place for all things you could think of, especially T-shirts and romper sets! Novelty items are also a great find on Amazon and you can piece your whole outfit together on their website.

6. Pretty Little Things

Pretty Little Things is a newly popular website for clothing for any occasion featuring rave inspired looks to girls night out classics! The price for the clothing is reasonable, ranging from $10 to $50 per item.

7. Princess Polly

Princess Polly is a unique brand! The name is catchy, but the clothing is even more attention-grabbing. While most of my friends wear Princess Polly clothes to raves and day-parties (darties), Princess Polly has clothes for many occasions that feature edgy and trend-setting vibes that'll update your wardrobe!

8. Lulu's

Lulu's is a great website for inexpensive prom and homecoming dresses, date parties, and special occasion dresses that do not break the bank! Most of these dresses are under $50.

9. Tobi

Tobi is another great source for cheap special occasion dresses and game day outfits. The clothes from Tobi are generally higher-quality compared to those from places like Shein, but they're typically going to be about $20 more expensive, with clothing ranging from $20 to $60 per item.

10. Missguided

Missguided is a step up from Fashion Nova in the sense that the dresses are $40 instead of $20, but the options vary, making this site a cheaper alternative for someone with more conservative taste! The clothing line is offering 30 percent off select fall fashion items right now, so check out this site for a wide variety of fall apparel!

Overall, if you are on a budget, in college, or looking for the latest online shops with trendy clothing, these are the sites for you! Best of luck with your fall shopping!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
