Where to Shop


I know everyone is busy tearing out their favorite outfits from the Limited Too catalogue and begging your Mom to buy those studded flares for the fall: “I’ll grow into them!” And then there is planning the perfect first day of school outfit to impress your classmates with…not to mention Michael, the most popular boy in school. Whew! Tough Life.

But in all serious…I LOVE Back2Skewl Shopping. I still make lists and cross things off as I purchase them (American grown child). Only as a young adult, my list is a little more pricey than it used to be. It takes more than one marathon trip to mall to knock the entire thing out.

Enter student discounts.

If you’re a student or were a student a few years ago, have kept hold of you ID, and didn’t age too much…you’re in luck! Did you know our favorite stores give discounts at the register just by flashing that cheesy freshman smile of yours?

    I had no idea that all of these stores offered so many fantastic discounts! I love Loft and Charlotte Russe (for their accessories).
