Since moving here seven years ago, I can confirm one thing: It’s expensive to live in Los Angeles. From the rent prices (so long, paycheck!), workout studios that think everyone in town has $40 to spare for a Pilates class, and the never-ending need for gas (I commute from Santa Monica to West Hollywood every day, enough said), it can be a hard hit on a 24-year-old's salary. And to top it all off, I’m a fashion editor who loves (like, really loves) to shop and is surrounded by well-dressed co-workers who encourage my bad habit. Fortunately, I’m pretty good at scoping out the things that fit within my small budget but also make me feel majorly chic. Curious to see what I'm finding?
