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) …

7 Things I Can’t Help But Buy Even Though I Already Own Something Just Like It

I am and have always been a creature of habit. I think it’s a symptom of my OCD, but when I like something, I really  like it and I can’t get enough of it and things just like it. I once ate the same tuna fish sandwich (on a baguette with avocado and tomato) everyday for four months. It is a miracle I did not get mercury poisoning. 

This obsessive nature applies to my shopping habits. Once something becomes my thing, I am drawn to nothing but that thing for months, weeks, years on end. A newer version of that thing is purchased with the justification that it’s different enough, shinier and just necessary. As a result, I have a lot of multiples. Here are seven things I cannot help but buy even though I already own something just like it.

Sustainable Style: 8 Bags From Rising Tide Fair Trade

Sustainable Style
A month of eco-friendly fashion on The Frisky! Read More »

Virginia Dooley and Nicole Jones started their line of fair trade bags, Rising Tide, after traveling around the world and meeting artisans working with exotic and unique textiles. Their bags are Fair Trade Federation-certified and Green America-approved, and a percentage of the profits are donated to philanthropic programs that educate and equip underserved young women with the skills needed to secure employment or start a business.

Explain the pair on their site, “The fair trade artisans we work with earn roughly 60 percent more than they would for comparable factory jobs. Since most of the artisans have the choice to work from home, they can tend to their children while contributing to the family income.”

And the bags are pretty and durable, too. Check out our eight favorites!

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.
