Everyone should be able to love what they wear without maxing out the credit card. Sales and Second hand stores are my top shopping destinations, mostly because I can wear the brands that I want, look put together, and still have money left over to go out for drinks, brunch with friends, or back to the shops.
End of the season sales are great ways to find deals. The stores have to get rid of the merchandise so the % off is usually pretty good. Plus, most stores set the next season of merchandise in the middle of the previous one, so you can still wear it and then have it for next year too!
