I started working in fashion about a year and a half ago, and I'm not going to lie, joining this world of ever-changing trends and styles was incredibly daunting at first. You can probably only imagine how I felt on my first day walking into the Who What Wear offices, overwhelmed by the effortlessly chic women who work here. But as I settled in, I realized that I didn't need to be intimidated, but rather I could learn a lot from my stylish co-workers. Now I can safely say they've taught me pretty much everything I know.
The most important lesson I've learned from the likes of Lauren and Michelle? How to effectively shop on a budget. I've come to believe it's probably the most valuable skill for a girl like me to have. Not to pat myself on the back, but I think I've gotten pretty good at it over time. In fact, I'd go as far as to call myself a professional budget shopper. Kidding, but only kind of. But trust me when I say that I now know the ins and outs of finding affordable pieces and where to look to find budget-friendly shopping success.
My favorite retailer for these types of buying sprees is Shopbop. Between the wide selection of covetable styles and the Amazon Prime–eligible free shipping, Shopbop is an underrated source for the best selection of affordable pieces. It's my forever go-to for under-$200 items that keep my wardrobe fresh and interesting, so I've decided to share with you what I'm currently coveting from the retailer. Shop my wish list below.
