On Saturday, I went to the Salvation Army coat sale for the first time. It would have been quite an overwhelming experience if my “thrifting coach,” Patrice J. Williams of Living Fly On A Dime, hadn’t given me some pointers before we began shopping. You see, Patrice has challenged herself to purchase only thrifted, second-hand, or vintage clothing and shoes for a year. She’s four months into her challenge and knows a lot about where and how to thrift. Under her tutelage, I found seven coats and jackets and I paid less than $70 total! Keep reading »
Regular hair extensions are so 2010. Step into the future of hair extensions with colorful feather-y extensions from Wendy Nichols. We’re not saying we’d wear these every day–to the grocery store or the post office, per se–but Nichols’ colorful extensions are perfect for a night out. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
Massimo Dogana has designed a shoe that I’m sure Lindsay Lohan would love. His “F-U” shoes give the finger and say how the wearer really feels. But at $1,095, we’ll just stick to making our own freehand gestures. [Stylediggers] Keep reading »
The first step to getting soft winter skin is exfoliating. But you don’t want to use any old scrub, right? We love Sabon’s Organic Body Scrub for its Dead Sea minerals ingredients, essential organic ingredients, and organic olive oil. (All the organic properties are certified by ECOCERT and Bio Swiss.)

CVS has expanded its ExtraCare program to include beauty rewards, giving you a reason to shop there. (I say “a reason” because no matter where the CVS is or the time of day, I’ve always had to wait in an epic line to checkout.) Participants will get a 10 percent coupon for registering, a $5 ExtraBucks for every $50 spent, and a $3 ExtraBucks for their birthday. But coupons aren’t the only incentives for signing up for the beauty rewards program. You’ll also receive beauty tips, discounts for online shipping, invitations to exclusive in-store beauty events, access to products before they launch, and personalized beauty offers. The benefits are similar to the ones Sephora’s Beauty Insider program offers, but the prices of the products are cheaper. You can sign up here. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
