Last week I had a few minutes of down time so I did something I haven’t done in about a year and a half. I went to Strawberry. If you don’t know what Strawberry is or totally forgot they existed, Strawberry is an affordable retailer in the northeast that’s comparable to Forever 21 and Wet Seal. The pieces are trendy and wallet friendly. And I used to always {and I do mean always!} shop there when I first moved to NYC.

Fast forward a few years and the pieces are still trendy and the prices are affordable for the most part. Check out what I found, including the most adorable, ladylike skirt and how to know when to walk away from a cheap chic find.
