8 Under $20: Banana Republic Sale

Post-Christmas sales are some of the best opportunities to score great deals that you won't find any other time of year. And what's even better is getting amazing deals at pricier stores that you might not normally shop at! One great example is Banana Republic -- right now, you can find some basics for your wardrobe for up to 50% off! Here are some of my favorites that are just $20 or less!

8 Under $20: Old Navy

Old Navy is one of my favorite stores. It's great for stocking up on wardrobe basics like tank tops, tee shirts and sweaters, as well as some trendier pieces -- all at an affordable price. Old Navy has great prices to begin with, but they also always have some kind of promotion going on and a great sale section, so getting an awesome deal there is easy.

8 Under $20: Urban Outfitters Sale

Urban Outfitters is popular for their stylish clothes, fun accessories and quirky home decor, but their prices aren't always college-student friendly. But luckily for all of us on a budget, Urban Outfitters happens to have a great sale section. Unlike some sites, where the sale section consists mostly of unpopular sizes and pieces, Urban Outfitter's sale section has a great selection and great prices.

8 Under $20: Kohl’s

One of my favorite stores to shop for cute clothes is Kohl's. One reason I love it so much is because it's always been there for me. So many times I've needed something last minute, like a pair of slacks for a job interview or the perfect pair of shoes for an outfit, and I can find the perfect solution almost instantly at Kohl's, while other stores didn't have anything.

8 Under $20: Express Summer Sale

It's still not even officially summer for a few more weeks, but that doesn't mean you can't save on a new summer wardrobe now! There's a great sale currently going on at Express -- the entire Summer Collection is 30-40% off! There are tons of cute dresses, shorts, tanks, t-shirts, sandals and more in the collection on sale!

The Know: Happy Anniversary, Nordstrom!

So we all know about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. And in case you don't know, it's a heavenly sale that happens every July where even though it's 90 degrees outside, you get roped in by Tory Burch boots and Vince wool cardigans, North Face jackets and Burberry trenches.

Web Spy: Shop It To Me

I've never been a designer-clothing type of girl. Not because I don't like them, but just because I couldn't afford them. Sure, there are tons of sale sites out there that carry designer brands for less, but it can be a pain to search through all the different sites for something that I actually like and can actually afford....before everything is sold out. Or at least that's what I thought until I found Shop It To Me.

Wanna Raid Christabelle’s Closet?

If you're anything like me, you're a sucker for a name brand. Despite wanting to be above it, I die when I see the new Marc Jacobs handbags or Prada runway show at Fashion Week. Also, if you're anything like me, your bag costs more than what's in your bank account and realistically you shouldn't be buying that Chanel watch that costs more than your rent.

There are over 100 million sites on the Internet. 100 million!

And more showing up every day! We get it - it's not easy or fun sifting through the crap and porn to find those gems, so we're gonna bring the gems to you.

I’m Torn: Holiday Sales

Besides leftovers and everyone's inability to wear anything without an elastic waist band, the only thing anyone's been talking about for the past few days is holiday deals. Every store around is slashing prices, including free goodies and even offering free shipping on any and all purchases. It's a holiday shopper's dream, but, being the compulsive shopper that I am, it is quickly becoming my worst nightmare.

I’m Torn: Black Friday

When November 1st rolls around newspapers, billboards and TV commercials are invaded by Black Friday deals. They have you drooling over discounted cashmere sweaters, luggage sets for 65% off and 2 for 1 shoe bargains. My heart races every time a new ad pops up on my Facebook page. Half priced makeup at Sephora? A new TV for cheap at Wal-Mart? A diamond sale at Kay’s Jewelers?

8 Under $20: Express

So, Express isn't cheap. That is pretty obvious when you walk in and the hot shirt your eying for your birthday party is marked at $49. But every few months, they have a major sale. And I mean major. The kind that makes you giddy and happy and willing to sift through giant over-stuffed racks because the deals are just. that. good.

8 Under $20: Karma Loop

Thanks to the tips of a fellow CollegeCandy writer (thanks Cristina!), I have discovered a website I never knew existed. After getting over the fact that I was forced to live this long sans this site, I embraced the new find and I'm loving it! It's called Karma Loop and they have a great selection of some awesome brands.

8 Under $20: The 15 Dollar Store

I just discovered The 15 Dollar Store online, where everything is (drumroll please)...15 buckaroos. They def have some cute stuff and even some brands like Romeo & Juliet Couture, Rampage and Chinese Laundry at 50% or more off! They sell everything from clothes to shoes to accessories and with the $15 price tag on all items, there's no need to feel guilty...
