CHERRY BOMB With a name like Cherry Bomb, expect nothing less than kick-ass clothes. And the survey says — drum roll, please — you can get some of the sexiest designer pumps for less at this boutique. Its accessory collection is eclectically diverse and the clothes ain't too bad, either. They also carry jeans in a 36-inch inseam.

H&M While this gigantic department store is somewhat overplayed — and absurdly packed on the weekends — you can't beat the prices. H&M is a girl's and boy's best friend with its large selection of undies, accessories and clothing at discount prices.

THE LUCKY EXCHANGE If you're in need of some funky vintage clothing, you might get lucky here. The Lucky Exchange has good-quality selections of vintage clothing and other goods.

PSYCHO SISTERS CONSIGNMENT BOUTIQUES If you want to get more bang for your buck, try this groovy shop. They have every brand you'd ever imagine and more.
