I suppose, its just fashion. Charlotte Russe has very hip and trendy clothes and the prices are reasonable, but the quality of the garments are poor. If you really need thoes skinny jeans that will be out of style in a few months or the psuedo goth/punk skull t shirt that will also fade out of fashion, than this is a great place to buy that type of fashion. There are also a lot of knock offs of famous designers. My suggestion is to buy knowing that if you wash it, it may get ruined and do not buy anything with sequience as it may fall off.
