It seems like Charlotte Russe has been around forever: even before Forever 21, if you were a teenager or in your earliest 20s, it was THE go-to place to get kinda cheap and disposable fashion. A real lady never tells her age, but clearly, Charlotte's been overdue for a makeover. The whole chain is getting a re-do. A new and improved flagship will open at Santa Monica Place on August 6.
