Shopping Guide: 10 Concert-Proof Bags Under $100

Earlier this week, I went to a show with my friend Nicole. I had my regular old purse, and Nicole was carrying her tote bag. As usually happens when you go to concerts, Nicole’s bag got jostled and knocked over and her wallet spilled out. When it came time to leave, there was a mad search to find her lost wallet on the floor of the club. Luckily we found it, but I promised Nicole I’d do a shopping guide specially dedicated to her almost-missing-wallet and her stupid tote bag, providing better bag suggestions for the future. Let Nicole’s mistake be a lesson — you need a friggin’ bag with a friggin’ zipper closure.

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.
