If you've been following either my other blog, or read my bio; you most likely know that the Obsessed Shopper is unemployed. Unemployed = no money and no money= little /to no shopping. I'm sure the sales people at Saks and Bergdorf's are wondering where I am. (Seriously, I used to frequent these stores on a regular basis during my lunch hour) But alas, it was my choice to be unemployed and therefore I shall not complain about it. However, if one likes to shop with little to no money one should get themselves to Forever 21 and Alloy.com.
Ahhhh Forever 21. I love Forever 21 (F21). If you search hard, you can find great stuff that can pass for slightly more expensive; and everything is always on trend. At a recent trip to F21, I was impressed with a cable knit sweater I found for 19.80. It's a long sleeved, taupe, turtleneck sweater that is extremely warm and cozy and looks more than it is.. While, I can't find the exact one I bought at the store; this one online is pretty identical.
Another great place to find lower priced items is Alloy.com. When I shop online, I always search for unique pieces. At Alloy.com, I recently spotted the very cute Key to My Heart Necklace. The necklace is gold colored, 32" long, with tiny keys placed sporadically around it. Worn with a nice v-neck top, or plaid shirt, it can make any outfit look more put-together. The necklace is priced at $16.90 (not including shipping and handling.) But like many online stores, Alloy.com offers free shipping for orders over $75 or more. While I didn't buy the necklace myself; I saw it on someone in Soho. Seeing it in person made me covet it so much more!
While F21 and Alloy.com target younger teenage consumers, I think obsessed shoppers of all ages can find items at these stores. Just look with an open mind and you'll find some great deals. Happy Shopping.
