G)oodwill: I found a Dior sweater at a Goodwill for eight dollars a few years back. There is a lot of muck to sort through but on a good day you will be rewarded with true jems for five dollars.
H)ennes & Mauritz: Key pieces here are any trendy items you are drawn to but cannot commit a paycheck to pay for. (150 Powell Street and 865 Market Street)
I)cing: The cheap accessories are a given but I spotted some hot trendy boots for thirty-six dollars that someone should buy and write me about. (865 Market Street)
J)ust stick with the basics and splurge on accessories and shoes to create impactful looks. You can take looks a long way with the right versatility in adornments.
K)id's Section: For petite women, shopping in the children's section can be a cost effective way of finding clothes that will fit them better without alterations. Children's collections follow adult trends for half the price.
L)eggings: They haven't been a huge trend for at least four seasons, but consumers will not them go. You can recycle a sweater dress or tunic by switching out solid leggings for patterned styles.
