Any good stores to buy cute/cheap clothes for back to school? (Girls; Austin, Tx; Sophomore 2012-2013)?

Q. My freshman year wardrobe was just horrible! I basically rocked the homeless look all year long!! -.-
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of where I can buy back to school clothes for a pretty cheap price, since I'm about to start my sophomore year. My mom's a single mom of 4 and I really hate making her spend lots of money. I'm 15, so I can't work yet, which doesn't help the money situation. I live in Austin, Tx. if that helps.
Honestly, I'm open to any suggestions on what clothes to buy bc I just buy what ever, but I want to make my wardrobe better/cuter. What kinda tops/bottoms/shoes should I get? What clothes should I buy that I'll be able to dress up or down with? I want to stop buying clothes that I can only wear for certain occasions or that I'll only wear once or twice a year.
I wanna buy clothes that's for fall, winter, & spring. Any suggestions?
Sorry for all the questions, it's just that I suck when it comes to being in style! What kind of shoes should I buy that'll match with everything? Lazy days & dressed up days. Every year I buy shoes that I can only wear with certain outfits & I find myself dressing horribly bc of that! >.<

Once again, sorry for all the questions, but I'd appreciate it if y'all helped me be in style for my sophomore year! I'm trying to not exceed $100, but I guess I can work with what I get, since everything's so pricy now-a-days! Thanks so much for your time and help! :)

Links to cheap, cute outfits is much appreciated as well as stores in the Austin or surrounding area! :D

Side note: Usually the styles I'm into are girly and/or floral, but then again I love the country style. I have cowgirl boots, so any outfits that'll go with them & any other shoes would be great! :D
One more thing, please keep in mind that I'm kinda chubby, so I'd appreciate suggestions of clothes that'll actually look good & not make me look even more fat. lol

A. i am a mother of a girl exactly your age who is also starting her soph year. unfortunately, unlike you she doesn't care how much her single mother spends. lucky for you i am both thrifty and fashion forward. i suggest you go to your local thrift stores and spend the bulk of your money there.
you need to have at least one perfect pair of jeans but two is better(skinny and boot cut). if you are a little chubby, stay away from super low or even low cut waists-they will create that dreaded muffin top and it's never attractive.
you also need a good coat that looks cute and keeps you warm. i say look for something that is unusual, funky, different but fits well and is comfy to wear. it will express personality and help u stand out. but be careful it isn't too out there! that could bring u the wrong attention.
get urself a pair of converse in a bright color that compliments the color of the jacket and the tops u get. think contrast. if ur a girly girl, baby pink is great with most everything u might wear.
make sure u have enuf tops and bottoms to dress for a week(bare minimum) without repeating anything except shoes and jacket. on a budget like urs that is do-able, and u should continue to add pieces whenever u can so u have more options. make sure everything u buy fits u right! that is, not too tight(hoping u will fit it soon) or too loose. try lots on to find what works (style/size) and stick with it.
another thing, look for the best quality items so they will last longer and look better. express ur personality but it's best to stay away from super trendy things or too extreme cuz they won't last long into the new school year. remember everyone is figuring out who they are/want to be just like you so be confident and focus on ur goals. that is the best way to look great all year long!!
i hope this helps u. let me know if u want more info or if u have any questions. have a great year!!

how much do you spend on new school clothes?
Q. and about how many outfits do you get. I use to get 5-6 new outfits. then my mom started giving me 500 dollars to get everything I needed for school (clothes,shoes,supplies backpack) im in high school btw going to be a junior this year.

and can you help me come up with some cute trendy outfits? post pictures if you can maybe.

A. I personally prefer to "shop in my closet" which means that I buy new clothes based on what I already have rather than spending X amount of outfit before school start.

First organize and declutter my wardrobe and throw out and donate anything that doesnt suit my personal style or my figure, repair or tailor things that can be repaired such as loose buttons (I can't sew so i ask friends who can or you can go to a tailored to professionally repair/tailor your clothes).

With the remaining clothes, I sort them first by season (move back the off-season clothes somewhere else, in a plastic box underneath the bed or in the corner of the closet/drawers) and then sort the current season clothes by clothing type (skirts, shorts, jeans, pants, casual tops, dressy tops, casual sweaters like hoodies and jumpers, cardigans, blazers/short jackets, flats, heels, casual shoes boots and so on)
and then again by color (neutrals next to each other and then going for the pink-red-purple-blue-green-yellow-orange "color theory pattern).
This help you to see what you already have.

I would first check if Ive enough basic staples such as solid neutral tank/camisoles, t-shirts, solid neutral pants/jeans/shorts/skirts (whatever you wear most), cardigans/hoodies and eventually blazer and see if I need any new good everyday shoes.
Everyday clothes and shoes first in basic neutral styles,

THEN slowly add fun, trendy or evening pieces, making sure that they can already be worn with something you already own. Lets say you want to get a flannel button down (casual fall staple for some people), make sure you have either buttoms, tops or accessories in the color of the prints before buy it (or buy it while buying the shirt).

What clothes and shoes depends on person to person. What a 16 years old girl would wear, a 20-25 years old wardrobe would very different.

Im 24 and prefer more professional clothes and shoes for my basic pieces like low heel leather pumps, riding boots, ballet flats, loafers/oxfords, blazers, button down shirts, pencil skirts, pantyhose, pearls kind of things and then dress them up (with nice jewelery and dress shoes or a sparkly top or skirt) for evening and dress them down for more casual wear, like a blazer with casual jeans and flats or a pencil skirt with tall boots and a button-down shirt and cardigan. This is my personal wardrobe staples.

I don't care about much outfits I need, I just gradually update my wardrobe by buying a couple of remixable pieces each month that goes with my basic staples! I usually buy at h&m and leredoute + deichmann, vagabond and eccoshop for shoes/boots. :3

Sorry for long answer, but I hope it sparked some ideas..
