Here is a screen shot from Nasty Gal showing the short, I got them a little cheaper than the sale price! The original price was $30, and this type of style is seen on Daily Look and more high end stores! You can find this print at forever 21 for a little more than $20.IMG_4405

IMG_4389This is how I styled the Geometric Shorts. I wanted a pop of color, so I went with a cobalt blue shirt. It has black strip ย detailing on the edge of sleeve and down the spine. The top from Cable & Garage (TJMAXX), brought out the geometric design from the shorts.

I understand that stores like Marshall’s and TjMaxx are a “hit or mis” situation but here are just some tipIMG_4395s on how I find some of my favorite clothing items from there!

  • CLEARANCE FIRST: I know we all like to go in a certain “order” when we walk in, but going to clearance in Marshalls/TjMaxx first will save you time. Depending on the time of year the sale section can be very overwhelming, but it is worth it. I always find stuff on sale, that are THE EXACT same item as a shirt that is not on sale. Once you decide if you found any cheap gems, then head over to the non-sale items.
  • WHAT TO LOOK FOR: I like to look at the name brand clothes (free people, splendid, etc.) then pick out something I like. Sure they are discounted from the actual stores but can still be pricy if you’re on a hunt for a good find. Once I pick out something I like then i’ll hold onto it and look in the other sections. I ALWAYS discover a “look alike” for more than half the price.
  • WHERE TO LOOK:ย I think most people in stay in sections they’re comfortable in. For me, I try to venture out, I look in ย juniors, women’s, and even men’s section. TjMaxx for example, there is clearly sections meant for younger and older people. I always looking at everything, cute tops I usually find in the business style clothes. A lot of the time I do get others glance as if I was confused on what clothes I should be looking at. If you’re a older then do not be afraid to check out the juniors section! There are usually cheaper versions of some of the fancier business attire in there! Just look everywhere if you’re looking for something specific, but use these tips just discover a precious new clothing item ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope this was helpful! I wanted to share some of the things I do when I am looking for a good deal, I plan to have a huge deail post and video later in the future discussing some shopping tips I use.
