Cheapskate: Capes & Ponchos For $100 Or Less

Capes and ponchos are not only very in this fall, but are also quite practical, which — let’s face it — fashion often isn’t. Capes and ponchos allow room for layering and can keep you dry on a rainy day. But since this is quite possibly a fleeting trend, here are some capes and ponchos… More »


Fashion, Music, And Forbidden Love

“Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky,” the true story of forbidden romance between two of the most creative minds of the 20th century, is out on Blu-ray and DVD today. Roger Ebert said this film, which was directed by renowned French filmmaker Jan Kounen, is an excellent biopic. It stars Anna Mouglalis, a former Chanel model,… More »


Seeing Flowers In Showers

Getting caught in the rain is no picnic. So if such a tragedy must befall you, make the best of it style-wise with a jolly Topshop umbrella. The fun floral motif on this brolly will be sure to put a smile on your face and those around you. Plus, we’re loving the old-timey curved handle,… More »


Get Seduced By Wildfox’s Love Potion Tee

We’ve never tried love potion, but we imagine the problem with it would be that a) it runs out, and b) it doesn’t actually work. What is completely charming us, however, is Wildfox’s “Love Potion No. 9″ T-shirt (which, unlike love potion, is reusable). With a soft texture and oversized fit, the graphics are the… More »


Silver Tie Affair

For rocking the business look, you have two options: dress in a boring skirt suit or play hardball with the boys and go the menswear route. If, that is, you actually know how to tie a tie — do you? Otherwise, try this cheeky silver necktie necklace by Brooklyn-based jewelry company Metal Sugar. The silver… More »


Cool Jewels

We’re not big fans of diamonds — too conflict-y and we tend to lose anything nice we have. That’s why we love these Cool Jewels Ice Cube Trays. The trays make jewel-shaped ice cubes that sparkle and shine and melt away in your drink. Plus, at under 10 bucks a pop, you can buy a… More »


The Fragrance Is Tops

The packaging alone could have sold us on this TokyoMilk Wrapped Soap, but then we sampled the fragrance and knew this soap was a must-buy. The “Minuette” bar features soft linden blossom and French lavender with a touch of mimosa, honey, and tea rose. It’s a light scent that’s sure to linger and make you… More »

You always wanted to write someone a poem. But Hallmark did it better. You always wanted to write her a song. But a) you can’t really sing, and b) see previous poetry detail.

Turning 30 Made Easier

Puberty! Thank God it’s over, right? Sorry, ladies, but you’ve only hit the snooze button when it comes to figuring out “boys, body issues, and other big-girl drama.” The new book Your So-Called Life addresses that second round of growing pains many women face in their late 20s and early 30s as they deal with… More »


Cheapskate: American Eagle Outfitters Summer Clearance

Some items at teen and young adult-focused stores can be ageless, believe it or not. American Eagle Outfitters does a good job of providing pieces an adult woman would want to mix into her wardrobe. The retailer also is excellent at lowering the prices. Check out the pieces we want, after the jump, and remember… More »


Maxi Mouse Pad Makes No Bloody Sense

A maxi mouse pad. Why? Described as a “great gift for you and it will spice up your computer,” this mouse pad is shaped like a “sanitary towel” and I suppose would best be accompanied by a bright red mouse. Not to get practical over something so ridiculous, but it seems to me this mouse… More »


Cheapskate: Free People Accessories Sale

Free People is all about the boho-chic look and is very good about not making women look like hippies stuck in the late-’60s. But today, I took a closer look at Free People accessories, which have a bohemian vibe and look more expensive than they are — especially since there’s a big ol’ sale going… More »

The Little Bra Company Focuses On Your Little Ladies

I found the prettiest bra while trolling for lacy lingerie the other day. It was delicate but sturdy, lacy but not cheap-looking, and I wanted it. Unfortunately, it’s made by The Little Bra Company, which a saleswoman told me focuses exclusively on A and B cup bras. My loss, your gain, Itty Bitty Titty Committee. More »

With Poo-Pourri Your Poop Doesn’t Have To Stink!

What goes up must come down. What goes in must come out. The truth is, everybody poops, but it’s embarrassing for some to go in unfamiliar surroundings, like your new lover’s place. Now you can poop anywhere without being embarrassed. Single? Think about this: You’re on the way to work one morning and you need… More »

The unofficial start of summer begins today, and it’s time to stock up on shorts of all lengths. Short-shorts can look cute with flat shoes.
