At last, it is almost summer. In a couple of days, all will be calm and right with the world. No more early mornings and late nights studying, finally we can just kick back and relax.

When it comes to fashion, there’s a common misconception that the pricer an item is, the better value it yields to the consumer. As seen by Balenciaga’s platform crocs and Tiffany’s $9,000 ball of yarn, this is far from the truth; in fact, there is a plethora of quality finds and designer picks that won’t break the bank at store...
