I had a post like this a while back and it was much more popular than I expected. I recently saw a post on fab finds from other purse friendly stores and thought "Amanda, you must do that again".

I am on a budget. Well, that is putting it lightly, I really should not be purchasing anything these days. However, I am human and I am a full-fledged diva, so sometimes that shopping bug starts to itch. When I do have this problem, my first stop is always Forever 21.com. Reason? Completely adorable and trendy clothes and you really can't do that much damage. I decided to share some of my finds from my recent binge where I filled up a cart as if I was buying, and then didn't check out. Really a sad thing to do but it does help my nagging need to buy.


I am all about blouses. I loved this blouse with the cute and feminine color and cut plus the studembellishmentthat gives it a little edge. I wear blouses in so many ways; to work with a pencil skirt, tucked into pants or hanging over my jeans. They are truly versatile to dress up or down any season.


I am a total sucker for anything outerwear and anything army-inspired. This vest would be a great piece to dress up with a cut mini dress or wear casual with jeans and boots.


Peplums are so flattering on everyone. I love this top (i prefer it in the lighter color but the picture did not do it justice) is so versatile and can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans, a bright statement necklace and fun pumps for the perfect night out with the girls outfit.

This dress is a perfect item that can stay in your wardrobe for years. I love the cut and the fabric looks much more expensive than it actually is ($27.80 is a steal!).

You would be hard-pressed to find me without a statement necklace on these days. Whether it is achunkycolorful option of a simpler choice like this great necklace above, accessories are key to every outfit.

This little beauty is likely being purchased tonight.....

I have a hard time buying pants on cheaper sites, as I believe a good pair of jeans is an investment. What are some of your favorite places to shop for budget friendly items?
