back to school shopping?

Ok so I am going to the mall of america for back to school shopping but there will be nine days of school before I get to go to the mall of america. I need nine days worth of clothes that I can buy in stores at places like Macy’s, Walmart, American Eagle, Younkers, Sears, Hollister, TJ Maxx, Old navy, gap, rue21 and Aeropostale. Any stores like that.

So I am asking for you to make me nine outfits using those stores. The items all need to be items that are in stores now.

oh my style is preppy vintage. I dont like to wear short shorts or really short skirts. My favorite colors are green and navy blue
I dont want to spend more that $200 no repeating outfits but items can repeat. I have lots of flip-flops so if the shoe is a flip-flop just dont count the price into the total. If you answer and post a link to one of your questions I will answer it too!
like i said peices can be shared (like jeans, tank tops, accesories)

if not under $200 than as close too as you can get.

Betty answers:

Spoiled. Just go the 9 days without new clothes… Then just go to mall of America.. Who cares?

Lisa asks…

How many back to school clothes could I get for this amount of money?

I am going school shopping on tax free weekend, and I have a question. How many back to school clothes could I get for 60-90 dollars? I would need some jeans, shirts, underwear, socks, and accessories. That is all I would need. I have enough shoes. And I have enough bras. So, how much of each item could I get for that amount? I will be shopping at pretty cheap stores such as: Walmart, Target, Charlotte Russe, Wet Seal, Rue 21, Forever 21, TJ Maxx, Gordmans, Belk, and Old Navy. And the clearance rack is my best friend. 🙂 And links of the items I could afford would be great!! Thank you! 🙂
No, our states tax free weekend is coming up soon.
Haha, that’s okay Jess. 🙂

Betty answers:

Rue 21 is an amazing place to shop for clothes. They always have like the coolest things ever on sale. Being a girl, for around 60-90 dollars you could probably get:

Two Jeans
Four Shirts
Undies
Socks
and Bracelets/necklaces

For 65 this weekend I got

5 shirts
2 pairs of jean shorts and
A Hoodie.

(65 that was all spent at Rue 21.) I spent more at other places, but that was my total bill there and not too bad if you ask me.

P.s. I’m a 17 year old dude lol.

Michael asks…

I checked online at Walmart and Miley Cyrus’ clothing line everything is almost out of stock?

just a couple items arent are they going to get more in stock? Because her clothing line just came out a week and half ago. I’m super mad because theres so many things I wanted from her clothing line for back to school and I went to my nearest walmart and everything is gone in my size. =[

Betty answers:

Well of course theyll have more of them all- why would they not have them if theyre that popular?? That wouldnt be a very smart move on their behalf!
