stylish, trendy and CHEAP

There's this store that I hadn't really heard of much before one opened near my house in Charlotte a few years ago. Now, I've seen this store pop up all over the place.

It's called Rue 21.

It's kind of like Forever 21 but even less expensive.

For someone who isn't always trendy but likes to look stylish (cough, it's a great place to find unique pieces to complete outfits.

I was on the lookout yesterday for some cobalt pumps and headed to Rue 21.

I was really blown away by the amount of stylish and trendy items they had. Seriously! Many times a trip to this store can be a hit or miss because they tend to be slightly over run with neon, graphic 80s style clothing. But there are always diamonds in the rough.

Yesterday I spied lots of statement necklaces, lace, blazers, animal prints, peter pan collars, loafters, studded shoes and totally current fall hues like rust and oxblood.

Here are a few photos I snapped (with my phone) while I was browsing...

I made it out of there with a cardigan, blazer and that cutie pair of cheetah ballet flats for $40. See what I mean? Their stuff is VERY inexpensive. These peter pan collar necklaces were $10 and the adorbs polka dotted dress in the first pic was a mere $29.99. 

So, if you're looking for something sassy, trendy and easy on the budget, you might just want to check out Rue 21. 

BTdubbs, I'm not being compensated in any way by this company. I'm simply sharing my knowledge with my readers. I hope that if you have one nearby you'll check it out!

Linking up with Molly and #YOLO MONDAYS.


  1. Have not checked them out yet, I'm going to this weekend. :)

  2. I need help shopping for blazers. I want a fitted one that I can wear with jeans, khakis or black dress pants. Does such a thing exist?

  3. ASFB, you should try the Rue. They had colored blazers that were more of a jersey/ponte/t-shirt material so they were stretchy. It's worth a try??


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
