steph.jpg I usually buy stuff from SM or Robinsons Department stores. :) There are lots of cute finds if you look hard enough. :) —Steph, Art Director
mimi.jpg Honestly, I just try to steer clear of malls when I'm trying to save moolah. It's the easiest way to resist temptation. Haha! —Mimi, Managing Editor
angel.jpg SM department store... As the tagline goes, they’ve got it all! :D —Angel, Associate Features Editor
margaux.jpg My secret shopping cove is Landmark. :) They have cute maxi and jersey dresses that are super reasonable! Just make sure to accessorize them with a nice belt or necklaces—no one will suspect they're from a department store! —Margaux, Associate Fashion Editor
marla.jpg The teens' section in SM. The stuff there is much cheaper than those in the ladies' department. :) —Marla, Assistant Lifestyle Editor
macy.jpg I don't. Haha! When I'm running low on cash, I just go to my closet and try to look for pieces I can pair with each other. I usually end up with "new" outfits and a happy wallet. —Macy, Web Deputy Managing Editor
