|This necklace $3 at Rue 21|
Today was a really great day. My roommate and I went and ate some delicious Thai food for lunch and then we went to the mall. While there we stopped at Rue 21. I really love Rue 21! I found out about Rue 21 when I was about 15. I’m from a small town, and so I only knew about stores like Kmart, Payless, and Old Navy. Those are great stores, but I’ve had a slight obsession with Rue 21 for the last few years.

|I got the shirt for $3, the necklace for $2 at Rue 21|
I love the layout of the Rue 21 stores, the music they play, and the people who work there. I love their prices, their fabrics, their sizes, and their shoes. I guess you could say the store and I have gotten pretty serious.
It’s hard not to walk out of that store with a big bag of clothing. I don’t know if I’ve ever bought anything there at full price. They usually have great sales and I always find something I like!
|This shirt was $3 and the skirt was $7 at Rue 21|
I’ve thought about owning a Rue 21 franchise many times because I know they have quality items that sell and last. I’ve bought clothes there for family many times, and they always love anything I get them from there. I have at least 6 skirts from there and 3 dresses.
Also they have some great perfumes and fragrences there. I've never bought any, but my roommate uses it and loves it! I am planning on getting some soon, but I should probably use all my other body sprays first. I usually go to Victoria's Secret for those, but Rue 21 has some great new smells.
I left the mall with 7 new shirts, a dress/long shirt, and two skirts for less than $40. Everything in the photo below I got for $2 each.
I also got this SUPER cute shirt today. It's probably one of the most expensive things I've bought at that store. I just couldn't pass it up! It's a little Asian and I like it!
While looking at everything I bought today I was realizing that probably half of my closet is full of clothes from Rue 21. Half of them still have tags on them because I usually buy clothes on the off season of when they're on sale. I buy my winter clothes in the summer, and I buy my spring clothes in the fall. There are always sales, Sales, SALES! Here are a few pictures of clothes from my closet. (This isn't even all of them I'm sure.)
|Scarves! $1 each at Rue 21 :)|
|$2 for the shirts. $5 for the shoes.|
At Rue 21 they have way cute jewelry! I used to not be a big jewelery person because my arms and neck are so small. I always feel like things just drape off of me. At least that's how I felt until I found this store. I love their bracelets!!! They fit on my arms and don't fall off. I get complements on my jewelry all of the time, and I tell everyone that I pay no more than about $3 for each item. The bracelets usually come in a bundle so it's $3 for 3 items. It's glitzy and looks cute. It doesn't look fake or like it's for little girls. (This isn't even close to all of my jewelry from RUE 21.)
I bought two coats at Rue 21 this year. I bought them in February or March when they were cleaning out their coats. The blue and black on on the left was originally $40. I got it for $8 at the end of the season and it was just my size! I went back the next day and got the Yellow and Grey coat. The buttons on that one were falling off so I bought this $60 coat and just tightened the buttons on it. it was also a whopping $8.
|Sweaters $5 each|
|$3 dress from Rue 21|
Jeans! I was skeptical at first, but I was really surprised by how comfortable and durable they are. I wear mine all the time and haven't had any problems with them. They also haven't had any problems with them when I wash them.
The black and white sweater as well as this purple sweater are probably my two favorite purchases I've ever made from this store. I wore them ALL the time in the winter. They were warm and long. I finally wore them out after about 3 years and a mission to Taiwan. I've never found anything quite like them. I bought them about 4 years ago. I wish I would have bought a lot more of them!
So here are a few of my confessions as a shopaholic. :)
