I love trendy pieces, but prefer to spend money on the classics. I didn't want to spend $176 for a pair of jeans, and couldn't find any knock-offs. I was excited when I went into Forever 21 on Friday and came across the Divine Rights of Denim ankle zip skinnies in red for $28 (and they were tax free). I can't find them on their website, but they are fantastic. I will have to post a picture later. They will definitely not be there for long.
I was excited when I visited Tiffany's blog today, and saw that Asos has affordable colored denim, and some are on sale. I swear I looked there just a few weeks ago but didn't find anything. This is what I just got for $118.95+ free shipping.
