Rompers have become a must-have item for beating the sweltering summer heat. This cute and breezy Victoria’s Secret romper pulls double-duty: it works as a cover-up at the beach but is also festively chic for a BBQ at a friend’s house (just add a T-shirt and a little razzle-dazzle). It’s flattering for all body types,… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

Even though running errands is a tedious task, I really love the sense of accomplishment I feel after finishing everything with spare time left in the day. Some might think there’s no need to look pulled-together for running errands, but I beg to differ. Not only will a comfy and cute outfit put you in… READ MORE »

Nothing puts a damper on a day in the park like ants crawling into your picnic basket. Gross. I shudder at the thought of mosquitoes, crickets, and wasps. Ugh, they’re icky! And I’m quick to kill ‘em (sorry, animal lovers), but insects give me the heebie jeebies. Now, however, there’s a better way to have… READ MORE »

While merchandise turnover happens every season, it seems most jarring in the summertime. It’s about this time of year that we start noticing heavy knits and jackets in the new arrivals section nestled right in there next to the bikinis. (Take for example, the new arrivals at the Gap: cardigans, hoodies, trenches, and argyle socks.)… READ MORE »

The sandal with ankle sheath (or boot-al as we like to call it, think bootie plus sandal) isn’t an all-new concept. We started seeing the boho-inspired, open-toe designs like these Topshop numbers in the spring, and have had some trouble transitioning with the kicks. You see, come summer, these types of shoes can become sweat… READ MORE »

American Apparel may be going bankrupt, but recently the retailer’s new styles have been right on the money. Take, for example, this simple jersey tank dress with a sexy scooped back. Our minds are racing with a myriad of ways to use and wear this item. Beach cover-up? Comfy nightgown, perhaps? Trying going risqué with… READ MORE »

Kylie Minogue has fearless style that’s hard for the average woman to imitate. However, this look balances the tightrope between edgy and simple well. Well-placed pleats and a tapered leg make her khakis chic and interesting, while the long-sleeve button-down shirt keeps the look classic. This classy neutral look would be great for a seaside… READ MORE »

Last week, I sauntered into the Gap to escape the heat and to check out the sale section. Once again, Gap didn’t let me down and somehow I walked out of there with a shopping bag full of sale goodies. While the items weren’t truly remarkable, they are staples, like a striped oversized T-shirt and… READ MORE »

There’s this problem with a lot of high-tops that keeps them from being more prevalent in our wardrobes. It’s called Boat Shoe Syndrome (because we named it that) and it manifests itself by making the shoes way too wide and clunky for our dainty lady feet. These Nike Dunk Skinny High Top Trainers, however, are… READ MORE »

The sun is out and the heat is on. But just because you’ve said goodbye to the cold weather layers doesn’t mean you can say goodbye to common style rules. Bling-bling and bikinis, heels at the beach, and sunglasses indoors just aren’t fashionable, regardless of who is wearing them. After the jump, find 10 summer… READ MORE »

Last week, we showed you some awesome abstract print skirts and this week we’re showing you how to rock one. Rachel McAdams proves that it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit simple and let the skirt stand out. But her satchel is also worthy of a mention. The unusual ice blue/gray color and… READ MORE »

It’s not easy to wear a denim dress without looking like a confused farm hand. For doing it right, we must praise Motel, purveyors of this utterly adorable striped denim concoction. The shape is cute, the pockets subtle and the denim-y-ness not at all overwhelming. We sense a new weekend uniform in the making. … READ MORE »

Last fall, we had a full-on fashion love affair with oxford shoes. So schoolboy-ish. So versatile. So comfy. Lately, the oxfords have gone into hibernation, and strappy sandals have taken their place. We’ve noticed, however, that a few retailers are still pushing oxfords this season, updating them for summer in a slightly sandal-ized version with… READ MORE »

Introducing the “summer poncho,” a design brought to you by Glamourpuss, socialite Gigi Mortimer’s clothing line. While some (us, perhaps) might glance at this and call it a caftan (standard beach cover-up), the garment is definitely meant to be the lightweight translation of the poncho jacket. Explains Mortimer, “We designed it as a warm-weather alternative… READ MORE »

This week in Cheapskate I’m highlighting JCPenney’s I Heart Ronson line, which is designed by Charlotte Ronson. The collection is right in step with fun and flirty summer fashion, but isn’t overly trendy. Plus, almost everything is on sale, so hurry up and snatch up these cute clothes. … READ MORE »

We’ve had a thing for this Anthropologie skirt (left) for a while now. The bright colors are alluring, the shape is flattering, and we just want it, dammit. A rather unattractive price tag, however, has held us back. That, after all, is not the sort of skirt you can wear all the time without being… READ MORE »
