New Brands At Target: Prologue Collaboration


Here Ye! Here Ye! Target has released yet another line and I am totally here for it. Why? Because I work a corporate job and spend about 40 hours of my week in business casual clothing. So why not dress in cute clothes that could possibly be worn to Happy Hour after work or even styled to be worn outside of work?


Prologue is a Target only collection that is a modern and contemporary women's line that will come in sizes 0-16, with sizes up to 26W online. The prices for the line will range from $12.99 -$49.99. Another very affordable line that we as frugal shopaholics can take advantage of.



The line was released on September 14th, and I can say first hand that the pieces are very cute yet chic but also fashion forward. Perfect for the professional young woman.

Affordable Halloween Costumes $50 & Under

UPDATE: This is last year's post with new costumes. 
Halloween is around the corner which means lots of costume and themed parties. I am not a big Halloween person, but probably because instead of trick or treating I went to Hallelujah Night at the church. The only ghost allowed in my house was the Holy Ghost, LOL. Anyway, costumes can get pretty expensive especially if you are going to multiple parties and don't want to repeat outfits. So, of course, we had to come through with some affordable costume options for our readers. But first, let's establish some rules this Halloween. What we're not doing this year and every year after is dressing up as someone else's culture. Leave the blackface, sombreros, Native American headdresses and offensive costumes behind. Don't be that person at the party. Be that person with a dope costume that didn't cost a fortune. Here are just a few costumes all $50 and below when you use a promo code. You can always go the DIY route, but everybody ain't got time for that.

What's The TREND? PVC Bags

PVC Bags had their run a few years bag and I loved it back then the way I love it now. Probably the most affordable bag out next to a plastic grocery bag but so much more fashionable. Designers like Maison Margiela, Balenciaga and Opening Ceremony got a hold of this trend and made their overpriced version but Frugal Shopaholics are all about saving a coin and looking good on a budget. Below are some cute options I've found!

Fall 2018 Must Haves Under $50

Last Saturday marked the first day of fall. For once, I am happy that summer is over because the weather has been super trash. This weeks forecast has more sunny days then there has been all summer here in DC. The fall weather is looking up so far. So I'm excited about that. 

It's that time where we bring you the current season's essentials or must-haves. Most must-haves repeat themselves from year to year, but this is the perfect time to tie in the current trends. You can also incorporate items from past seasons, like your mules and sneakers from spring to fill your fall wardrobe. See what I think you are this fall's essentials. 

1. Light Jacket - Wear it on its own earlier in the season before it gets cold cold. Depending on where you live, you may or may not have already pulled out your jackets. Try buying a size up so you can layer for later in the season. 

2. Long Sleeve Dress - Ditch your summer dresses for a long-sleeved style that you can pair with boots or sneakers.

3.  Paperbag Pants - Cropped, fitted or flared are all variations of paperbag pants. Find a style that fits you and add (if you don't already have a pair) them to your fall wardrobe. 



4. Jumpsuit - Trade your romper in for a jumpsuit. They are perfect for any occasion. Whether you are running errands or a night out with your girls or bae. Wear them with mules, sneakers, or booties, whatever you want really. 



5. Ankle Boots - It's not really fall until you pull out your boots.  Wear them with literally whatever you want. Get some bold booties that make a statement and step into fall.

The Look For Less: Gucci


I've been eyeing a small Gucci bag for a few months now but on my normal shopping runs to Forever 21 I came across the cutest bamboo handle satchel. Little did I know it was a Gucci Look for Less. 


From my research the Gucci version was well over $20,000. Which is WAY over a frugal shopaholics budget and probably has a lot to do with it being croc skin. The Forever 21 version is only $30. Self explanatory, a must have.

Save $ or Splurge $$$ Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

I always thought my skin type was dry skin until I visited the esthetician and learned it was, in fact, combination/oily. The reason why I thought it was dry is because it lacked hydration and was just dehydrated. Dry skin lacks natural skin oil but dehydrated skin lacks hydration. Once I learned that I made sure to add hydrating products to my skincare routine. Every now and then my skin needs a little extra hydration, so I use an overnight mask. I've been alternating between Lumene and Laneige gel masks. Both products are similar so I've used them both, but I can't seem to pick between the two. See the details and tell us what you think, SAVE or SPLURGE.

Lumene Hydra-technology combines oxygen-rich Pure Arctic Spring Water with Nordic Birch Sap that’s bursting with minerals, on application the innovative light-weight aerating complex indulges your skin's surface with moisture to provide intense hydration. Working in harmony these thirst quenching elements rescue skin to leave it smooth and even for an instantly fresh and radiant glow.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Propanediol, Betula Alba (Birch) Juice, Glycerin, Methyl Gluceth-20, Phenoxyethanol, Rubus Chamaemorus (Cloudberry) Seed Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Allantoin, Sodium Hydroxide, Trehalose, Urea, Eriophorum Spissum Flower/Stem Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium Edta, Copper Gluconate, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Pentylene Glycol, Serine, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Algin, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium Phosphate, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Pullulan, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sorbic Acid, Potassium Phosphate, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene, Citronellol, Parfum (Fragrance), (Ci 42090) Blue 1, (Ci 60730) Ext. Violet 2

Splurge: Laneige Water Sleeping Mask $25
Recharge your dehydrated skin while you sleep with this innovative mask. It’s formulated with highly concentrated Hydro Ionized Mineral Water to deliver high doses of moisture to stressed, parched skin. Calming Sleepscent™, infused with orange flower, rose, and sandalwood, and it relaxes and comforts while apricot and evening primrose extracts to brighten and purify fatigued skin. The result: skin looks and feels radiant, refreshed, and soft so you wake up with soft, glowing skin.

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Root Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Beta-Glucan, Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Magnesium Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Calcium Chloride, Potassium Alginate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate / VP Copolymer, Polysorbate 20, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Dimethicone / Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Propanediol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Stearyl Behenate, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Hydroxypropyl Bispalmitamide MEA, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Blue 1 (Ci 42090)

Have you tried these two products? Which do you prefer? I actually like them both but Laneige leaves my skin a little more supple. However, Lumene doubles as an instant and overnight mask. Sometimes I need an instant hydration boost and Lumene 's mask is perfect for that. So I tend to gravitate more to that plus it had double the product. You really can't go wrong with either.

What's The TREND? Tiny Sunglasses


All the 90's trends are back, chokers, platforms, fanny packs and more. This summer the retro sunglasses are what's hot. Now, this trend isn't for me cause I have a big ole face and they just don't look right on me. But they do look good on a lot of other people. I got Derria a pair for her birthday and they look great on her! If you are a person who loves tiny shades then you will enjoy the super cheap options below.

New Brands at Target: Wild Fable

Image result for wild fable logo
Late last year Target let us know that they would be phasing out some of their staple brands and reeling in new and improved ones. At first, I was very sad about the changes that would soon come but with all the newness and hotness I have seen thus far, this has to have been the best decision Target has ever made.

The most recent and upcoming release will be Wild Fable, said to be released tomorrow August 3!   Wild Fable is a women's brand that will include plus sizes. Size are from 0 to 26W. Items ranging from sunglasses to jumpsuits. 

The Target close to me actually had the line on display and for sale, so I was able to look at the quality of the pieces and try on some of the items that I was interested in buying. So far I have a plaid two piece and a super cute fanny pack!


The best thing about these super trendy and chic items is that nothing is over $40! A frugal Shopaholics dream! Get a sneak peak of Wild Fable NOW!


P.S. Items I'm eyeing are below!

Frugal Finds: Naked Wardrobe



When all else fails, its always a good move to buy basic items and style them to make them your own. Throw your own twist  into the game and walk with confidence. Naked Wardrobe is a basics brand, not for the faint at heart because it will  hug every  single curve you have but in a subtle but sexy way. They specialize in that Kim K/Yeezy wave. But as I mentioned these are items you have to style and put your own spin on so you don't blend in with the crowd.

Naked Wardrobe items range from $15-$60 and they carry everything from accessories to maternity apparel. Check out my faves  aka Frugal Finds below:
