Store Profiles for Successful Shopping

Limited access is a big concern in the alt fashion community. There aren't many alt brands and there aren't many brick and mortar stores that sell alternative fashion. The ones that do are often expensive and only found in metropolitan areas. Another concern for baby bats is being allowed to shop in certain stores, some people have to get their clothes where the rest of the family does, whether its a big box store or a mall. 
However, it is possible to put together an alt look from popular stores.
