The Look for Less: Chanel Backpack

Backpacks are trendy again. I remember wearing them as a kid. The new and improved designer versions are very chic and cool with a feminine touch to the traditional backpack. Chanel is just one of the many designers who has adopted the trend.  Chanel being Chanel put a classic and timeless spin on the it. If I had to pick a backpack to get it would be this one. A lot of celebs and popular bloggers have been rocking this bag and now you can too for a fraction of the price.

Spring 2018 Must Haves Under $50

Spring is on its way and the weather can be unpredictable. Just last week here in DC we went through all the seasons. Just like fall, spring is a transition season as far as clothes go. You can put away your heavy coats but keep the boots, light sweaters and jeans in your closet for spring. Add some of the pieces below to your closet for the upcoming season and you are good. Now, there are a lot more trendy variations of these items you can add. But as I always say this is a post for ideas to add your personal touch.

1. Graphic Tee - Derria just did a post on how graphic tees are the must-have trend. 

2. Mini Skirt - 90s valley girl style is in right now. Pull out your mini skirts and pair it with your suit jacket and whatever shoe you like. 

3. Suit - Suits are in both pant and miniskirt suits. And you need one in your closet because they can be worn in multiple ways.  It's an easy way to maximize your wardrobe. 

4. Oversized  Dress - For those days that are not too cold and not too hot an oversized dress is perfect. Pair it with some sneakers or your winter booties. 

5. Mules - It isn't full-blown sandal weather yet in most parts of the country but mules are a good segway.  

6. Sneakers - Chunky, platform, or embellished pick a style you like and rock it.

Save $ or Splurge $$$ Cover FX Liquid Highlighter

I don't know about you but I want you to be able to see my highlight from across the room. Before highlighting was extremely popular, I would add MAC's lustre drops into my foundation to give me that glow. I didn't know of many liquid highlighting drops back then but now every company from drugstore to high-end make them. My current fave liquid highlighter is from Makeup Revolution in rose gold. 

Makeup Revolution is known for there quality dupes of high-end and luxury beauty products(stay tuned to our IG story for a full list). I can do a Save or Splurge post every month for the rest of the year with dupes from them. MR's liquid highlighter is a spot on dupe for the Cover FX Enhancer Drops. Both brands have an array of colors and similar ingredients. Cover FX is a little more pigmented but for $42 I can buy like 5 from Makeup Revolution. 

You be the judge. See the details and tell us what you think, SAVE or SPLURGE.

The liquid highlighter drops have a variety of uses! The highly concentrated pigmented highlighter is a must have for all lovers of glow! Can be used alone as a liquid highlighter, simply apply to the high points of the face and blend with a synthetic brush or sponge for dimension and glow.

The Look for Less: Saint Laurent Swarovski Boots

If you had $10,000 to spend right now on anything you wanted, what would it be? Would you drop $10,000 on a pair of boots or a bag? For some the answer is yes but for the average frugal shopper that $10,000 could do a lot. 

So let's get into this Saint Laurent Look for Less that's more than half the price less than the original designer boot. Definitely a statement boot you can add to your wardrobe that can be worn year round multiple ways

What's The TREND? Red

So this trend isnt't an item but a color. In a few our previous posts you may have noticed red pieces here and there and the reason why is becasue red is on trend. Red is the "it" color this winter season. You can wear it as a pop of color or head to toe (insert blood joke here). Do you plan to incorporate red into your wardrobe this winter? See a few red items below!

New Brands At Target: Universal Thread

NEW LINE ALERT! I frequent Target online and in-store every week just to see what's new and also to see what's new to the Clearance rack! I was aware that there would be new lines coming in to Target and I absolutely love A New Day. So I was excited to see Universal Thread Co. on the front page of Target.com

The Universal Thread line is focused on denim but will feature tops, dresses, accessories and shoes. It will also run in sizes 00-26W. Perfect right? You know the Frugal Shopaholics love Target and finding a deal, so it's no secret that if we talk about it then its definitely affordable. The brands price range will be from $5-$40. Always my price range for most things that I buy for my wardrobe. 

I haven't gone to the store to try on the line but from the descriptions in the titles I know this line had the curvy girl in mind. And for that, I'm excited because buying denim can be tough when you have hip and a but and a "smaller" waist at times. Check out some of my tops picks below:
