What to Buy Fall 2008: Wet Seal

Wet Seal—can’t we do something about that name? Okay, at least it tells us one thing—we don’t need to take the fashion we find here too seriously. It’s trendy, yes, but that’s the fun of it—pick up trend-of-the-minute pieces (this season, that means sweater dresses, shiny tops, and plaid and houndstooth) on the cheap, meaning a guilt-free fashion indulgence. Our picks for this fall:




Plaid Mary Jane Low Heel, $22.50
3/4 Sleeve Pencil Dress, $25.50
Cap Sleeve Knit Dress, $19.50
Houndstooth Pencil Skirt, $24.50
Satin Waist Belt Top, $18.50
Distressed Bomber Jacket, $39.50

    I have found some very interesting and often unique little pieces from Wet Seal.  Even some cheap jeans that fit like a dream!

    I just ordered some stuff from there a couple weeks ago (mostly basics on clearance—can’t beat shorts for $5!).  I had never purchased anything from them before, so it was kind of a trial run.  I found their t-shirts to run a bit small, and one of the dresses I bought from them was cut a little weird in the bust area, but overall, I am delighted to have found some cute stuff for such ridiculously low prices.  I’ll definitely be ordering from them again.
