Is being a gentleman actually really sexist? Read More »

I met Donny* for a drink at 6 p.m. on a Sunday. When I walked into the deserted restaurant, soaked from the downpour outside, I didn’t know he was destined to become the pettiest, stingiest and most pitiable man I’ve ever gone out with. Keep reading »

Cheapskate: J. Crew’s Extra 30 Percent Off Sale!

Oh, hey there, J.Crew email in my inbox telling me there’s an extra 30 percent off sale items online. That’s the only excuse I need to blow my wad on preppy-cool basics I can wear this spring because lord knows I do not have nearly enough preppy-cool basics from J.Crew in my wardrobe, especially ones that cost $70 and under. And for those of you who think this sounds like sarcasm, I can assure you that it’s not — just look at the nine things I picked out and just try and tell me I — and you — don’t need them, like, immediately.

Cheapskate: The Children’s Place Sale

I don’t have any children, but I have a few cousins with at least three children each, who don’t want for anything. So when it comes to birthdays, I prefer to get my cousins’ children, whom I consider my niece and nephews, clothing rather than toys. I often look to The Children’s Place for affordable and stylish clothing. This store is able to translate trends and classic items so the clothes look current, but not too adult — the kids still look like kids. Although The Children’s Place’s prices are really reasonable, the sale prices are even more remarkable. Check out some of my favorite items for newborns, baby boys and girls, and big boys and girls, after the jump. Keep reading »

Cheapskate: J.Crew Semi-Annual Sale

I’m sure you can guess who alerted me to J.Crew’s semi-annual sale this morning. [Who?!?! -- Editor] And if you can’t, then I’ll tell you it was Amelia, of course. [Oh yeah. -- Editor] We both are big fans of J.Crew, especially the semi-annual sale because a ton of current season clothes are reduced — and right now, everything on sale is an extra 40 percent off when you use the code “MUSTHAVE.” Check out some of our favorites after the jump. (The approximate price of the item after taking 40 percent off is in parentheses.) Keep reading »

Cheapskate: Gap End-Of-Season Sale

I have a really hard time walking past a Gap store without going in. But I have an even more difficult time paying the ridiculous prices of some Gap basics. Fortunately, this weekend I didn’t have the latter problem because the Gap is having a mega end-of-season sale. Not only were many of the winter and fall items on sale, but the Gap was also offering a 40 percent discount on top of the sale price in stores. I didn’t go crazy in there because sizes in the store were quite limited. There is, however, a large selection of sizes, colors, and styles on sale online. Check out some of my favorites.

Cheapskate: Lands’ End Canvas Does The Preppy Look For Less

You know we’re big fans of J.Crew, over here. But we’re not fans of the Crew’s oftentimes ridiculous prices. We still haven’t figured out why most of the shoes are upwards of $200! But instead of complaining (some more), we decided to check out Lands’ End Canvas, which has preppy yet slightly urban wardrobe staples similar to J.Crew. Lands’ End Canvas is affordable enough so that you don’t need a trust fund to get more than one piece. Check out some of our favorites after the jump. Keep reading »
