What are pretty but inexpensive brands of clothing for young adult women?

Q. I have so many old clothes that I want to donate which came from who knows where. Preferably a brand not as mainstream as Forever 21 and H&M, I know of those places. I live in California if that helps at all.

A. Have you ever tried the more "trendy" thrift stores? Sometimes you can find really good deals there. I live in California too. What's popular here is a store called Buffalo Exchange. I don't know what part of California you are in, but in So-cal there is one in Fullerton. And one in Long Beach. Up north, I only know of one in Berkeley. I know there is many more.
Here's their website:

There is also a store called La Bomba, but that is only in So-Cal I think.

They have really... vintagey Forever 21 looking, but better clothing. Sometimes they are pricey, but it depends on the item of clothing. Jackets are usually the most expensive things in the store. It is a thrift store though, so everything is gently used. Also, if you have old clothes to get rid of, you can take em to Buffalo Exchange. How it works there is a worker will look through your clothes and determine if they want to buy them from you. They are really picky about clothing, but they will buy your clothes if deemed "fashionable" enough for re-sale. It's a really hipstery place, though. They get a little cocky and will totally judge your style.

Also, have you tried Ross? Sometimes, their clothes are just ugly, but you can also find great cheap jeans there, sometimes cute shoes or tops as well.

What is the one thing every fashion foward girl should have in her closet?
Q. What do you think every young (teenage-20s) girl should have in her closet? Ex. White shirt, black bag, pair of flats...
No more Uggs please! i hate those shoes.

A. As a woman in my early 20s, I feel that I need classy pieces that transcend seasons and stay classic forever.
For example, button-down shirts/blouses, jeans that aren't too trendy (by that, I mean classic cuts and styles), trousers that are straight leg in neutral colors (black, gray, tan, brown, even some pinstriped), fitted blazers and other structured jackets, pencil skirts, a-line skirts, 3/4 length sleeved tops (can be v-necked, wrap tops, etc), wrap dresses, pea coats or trenches.

Accessories are where you can have inexpensive fun with chunky, long, beaded necklaces, dangley earrings, scarves, belts, etc.

Also, be aware when choosing color. Bright colors are great, but sometimes jewel-toned shades are more sophisticated. Having said that, color can be great to add some flair to an otherwise neutral and drab wardrobe.
Fit is important. In a classic look, it seems that nothing is ever too tight or baggy.

As for shoes, I love flats, but I also feel that having at least 1-2 pairs of pumps (like in a neutral color, black or brown) is important. Also, boots are great for fall and winter whether they're flat or heeled. If you love color, invest in some bright shoes, such as a pair of red pumps. It can be a great signature look IF that's your kind of thing.

Having said all that, you can easily fit trendy pieces from every season into that.
