Awesomely Affordable: 10 Picks From Brandy Melville

I first discovered the Italian label Brandy Melville during a trip to Santa Monica last summer. I was strolling along the Third Street Promenade when I came across the store, and I had an instinctual reflex to go in. Immediately. From the aesthetics and quality of the trendy clothes, I thought they would have exorbitant price tags like that of a similarly styled shop, LF. Not so — think boutique looks at just above Forever 21 prices. All of the clothes, except denim, are one-size-fits-most, subscribing to a loose-fitting, laid-back philosophy that made me want to buy everything. When I came back to New York, I was thrilled to discover their Soho store, but to my chagrin their online retailing was little more than an intro page. Sometime in the last six months, they gave it a revamp to offer e-commerce, so now Brandy is available to everyone. The one-size mantra makes it beyond easy to shop tanks, tops, and dresses, and I couldn’t be happier. Here are my ten favorite summer-ready pieces available online right now.

6 Awesome J. Crew Pieces — On eBay!

I’ve never been much of an eBay shopper; in fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve bought something on the e-retailer. But two of them have been in the last year — and both were brand new J. Crew items. Maybe this isn’t a secret, but it sure as heck was to me — it turns out, there’s a ton of brand new, with tags, J. Crew items being sold on eBay. Why? I’m not entirely sure. I do know that I was incredibly happy with both of my purchases: 1) a winter coat I coveted after seeing it in a movie and 2) a pair of round-toe pumps that I got for $40 less than the retail price. In fact, if I’m coveting anything currently being sold at J. Crew — and, let’s face it, I always am — I check eBay to see if anyone is selling it at a markdown. Plus, eBay is also a great place to check for past favorites that you wish you had snatched up. Here are six awesome J. Crew items you can score on eBay right now.

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Items Under $50 From Nasty Gal

Every now and then while browsing the internet I’d see a link to Nasty Gal and assume it was porn. Then my friend Aileen sent me a link to Nasty Gal and I still assumed it was porn, but since a friend sent it to me I thought I might as well check it out. Turns out this questionably named site actually sells trendy women’s clothing, and they’ve got a great summer collection. So, without further ado, here are 10 of my favorite Nasty Gal pieces for $50 or less (and yes, I’m aware how inappropriate that sentence sounds) …

Awesomely Affordable: 13 Bandeau Bikinis That Don’t Cost A Fortune

You guys, I simply cannot stay silent for a moment longer. The cost of swimwear is too damn high! It’s. Too. Damn. High. I’m going to Mexico in a month so I’ve been on the hunt for a new bikini to bring with me and wear basically 24/7 while I’m there. But I am seriously appalled by how much swimwear designers are charging for these scant pieces of fabric. Who wants to spend $200 on something that is going to spend the majority of its time soaking in chlorine or salt water, chafing against sand, and fading in the sun? Who wants to spend $200 on something that is, for most of us, sort of depressing to shop for because it illuminates our unfair body image issues? NOT ME. AND NOT YOU. That’s why I am taking it upon myself to track down the best swimsuits in a variety of styles under $75, that way you still have money to spend on, you know, getting to the beach(or pool or lake or swimming hole) in the first place.

First up: bandeaus! This is my ideal bikini style because I really don’t like tanlines on my shoulders or chest — all of these bandeau tops (with matching/coordinating bottoms) come with a strap/straps that you can either untie or remove, that way you can still feel secure when you’re running through the waves.
