you can also do the EGL comm sales for use brand items, and offbrand, i've bought all my brand stuff second hand so its cheaper.
Don't just start buying items though =O gather pictures of the items you want. and think about coords you can make. it saves you a lot of money in the long run.
I'm always jumping between sweet, hime and casual, and sometimes some classic.
