Good Stuff From Cheesy Stores

Not to brag, but I have a knack for finding cute stuff in incredibly cheesy stores. I consider it a feat to find at least one decent item in stores that are usually written off as fashionably sub-par. Below are some picks I've discovered in stores that I normally wouldn't frequent for closet staples. Some of you may disagree on store choices — don't mean to offend, but to each her own.

New York & Company. New York & Company is actually great for inexpensive winter staples– scarves, clothes, and hats. But recently I've been spotting some stellar clothing on the racks. Check out this classic tuxedo shirt ($17.50, was $35), boyfriend cardigan ($25.90, was $37), and eclectic circle print dress ($29.50 was $59) – right on point with the wearable art dresses seen on the runways.

JCPenney. Even before JCPenney came out with its wanna-be Polo American Living line, I still visited this bargain department store to stock up on tights, undies, and the occasional timeless houndstooth blazer ($112.50, was $150).

Aldo. Whenever I think of Aldo I think of the mall near my high school in New Jersey – never a good association. However, the store has been putting out some decent footwear lately, like these vintage-inspired peep-toes ($80) and classic patent ballet flats ($60).

Arden B. There's an Arden B close to my subway stop and a big red Clearance Sale sign lured me in one afternoon. Lo and behold, I found their jewelry section to be fantastic. Two favorites are this drop chain necklace ($34) and wood grain ring ($18).
