8 Under $20: Charlotte Russe


This week we take another trip down cheap & trendy lane to Charlotte Russe.  This is a great place to shop if you’re looking for affordable, well, anything. Hot evening looks, basic day looks, super sexy shoes, way cute accessories and everything in between – Ms. Charlotte has it all.  They also recently launched a new line of more upscale/expensive pieces and denim called People’s Liberation that I am totally feelin’. Just not for this, since none of that shiz is under $20.

But this stuff is, meaning you can load up on the goodies and keep that budget in check. It’s a beautiful thing, I tell you. A beautiful thing.

Accessories can make (or break) an outfit and CR offers loads of awesome accessories at even more awesome prices, usually under $10! This bangle can be used for day or night and the gorgeous colors will give a special pop to your outfit. Even if that outfit is a t-shirt and jeans.

If you’re wanting to go Gossip Girl/prep style for back-to-school, this headband just screams Blair Waldorf. Except you don’t have to spend like Blair Waldorf.

Tights are not only a fun fashion statement, they’re a Godsend as the summer warmth is replaced by autumn chill.  This little pack comes with 2 pairs of tights that can be worn 3 different ways.  Style and versatility?  Yes please.


These shoes are cute, easy to get on and off (which is a totally under-rated feature in footwear, I must say), come in 3 different colors, and are totally worth the under-$15 price tag.

Pencil skirts are a necessary staple in any gal’s closet and I am loving the bandage look of this one; it’s sure to accentuate those curves of yours and will look great with anything from a basic tee/tank to a ruffled blouse to a sexified evening shirt.

This blouse is a great addition to any wardrobe with it’s girly ruffles, cinched waist and versatility.  Pair it with jeans, trousers or the pencil skirt above.


Boyfriend jeans…for $19.99? You’re welcome.

School will be in session soon (groan), but heading back to campus also means there’s bound to be loads of back-to-school parties. And you must look hot for said parties.  The sexy bustier-inspired top with a flowing bottom is definitely worth more than the super cheap price tag on this little shirt. You can show off the cleavage and hide any of those extra pounds from eating too much of mom’s cooking this summer.  Bonus: the fuschia will also look fantastic on your sun-kissed skin.
