I go to a fairly rich college (in my opinion it is pricey)..but I am cheap. I shop at Goodwill and I like thrift stores, however most of the girls at my school shop at Victoria Secret, and shop at the mall. I have never been able to afford "mall" clothes. They get their hair and nails done every week. I hate getting my nails done and I like getting my hair highlighted when I have extra money.
I hate looking like a charity case however I am a woman at my school that stands out because I just really do not care about that stuff. I am a woman who likes to look nice but putting money into yourself on a daily/weekly basis seems kind of ridiculous to me. I wear makeup and I get stared at a lot, not really sure why. But I am wondering, the guys at my school come from above average income families, do you think they see me below them? like trashy? because I do not feel the need to compensate for anything. I feel like clothes are clothes, and all my friends say I can pull off any look, but I am a great person when you get to know me. I am really friendly, and I like to make people laugh and feel comfortable.
Honestly, It takes money to look good, guys really don't understand how much money it takes. But beauty is on the inside. I feel like men need to remember that when they see a girl who looks "average" ...by the way, I like normal and average looking guys. I hate that ambercrombie and fitch model style looking guy...Yuck.

I went to an expensive college where all the girls wore very expensive clothing and were always put together. Thrift store clothing can actually be really cool. I'm not rich either but I always find sale item stuff in my favorite stores that can be more than reasonable. It's not that hard to bargain shop.
As for nails, that's not necessary and neither is getting your hair done all the time. Looking presentable doesn't have to be that pricey. Believe me.4
