The Look for Less: Chanel Slingback

Ten points for Kaitlyn Pan with another bomb dupe! This time it's the classic Chanel beige and black slingback, Now these shoes aren't new at all, in fact, they are older than probably everyone reading this blog. But they continue to be a staple in their collections; its one of the most popular Chanel shoes of all time. I've always thought this shoe was just for the older ladies but the young girls are loving them too. I assume so many people love them because the colors go with all skin tone. 

Now, there are so many dupes and inspired looks made after this shoe but I've found the best one on Amazon for under $100. See them for yourself and check it out below!

What's The TREND? Utility Pants



When comes to clothes and shoes shopping, the top priority for me is COMFORT! I hate being restricted in the tummy area. I need freedom to drop it at any given moment. The parachute pants trend is definitely one that you should take part in. Your mom probably had a pair back in the day. Take a look at some inspiration and options below:

June 2018 Frugal Finds: Lola Shoetique


This month's frugal finds come from an oldie but goodie, Lola Shoetique. Am I the only one who forgot about Lola Shoetique? I gotta admit, with stores like Ego and Simmi I completely forgot about Lola. I didn't even know they started selling clothes. They were the OG for designer shoe dupes. Some of our first posts featured their shoes. I haven't ordered from them in years but since my rediscovery of them, I have a few things on my list.

The Look For Less: Balenciaga Triangle Duffle XS

I'll just start this post by saying I don't mind splurging and buying designer items if it makes sense for my wardrobe (i.e. I'll wear the item often etc) but there are just somethings that I rather just grab the look for less. In this case, I'll most likely be buying this bag... The look for less version that is.

This Balenciaga bag will run you about $1,800 *moment of silence*. But as Frugal Shopaholics we've come to the rescue with an affordable and frugal option. Steve Madden came through in the clutch, 50 BUCKS! Almost an exact replica if you want the triangle bag vibes. Check it out below!

Summer 2018 Must Haves

What's the TREND? Short Suits

Lebron isn't the only one wearing short suits this spring/summer. If you don't know what I'm talking about check out ESPN. Menswear has been trending for the past few years and this time its shorts suits. This is the "it" spring trend that everyone can participate in no matter what. Wear it to brunch, date night, party or wherever else you feel like it. The great thing about a suit is that you can wear it multiple ways. Buy 1 outfit get 3. That's how I see it. 

Are you joining in on the short suit trend? If so tag us in your pics so we can see how you styled yours.

Save $ or Splurge $$$ Drunk Elephant Babyfacial

Yes, I am talking about skincare again. If you read my last post you saw my detailed regimen. One of the things I do weekly in routine is giving my self a peel. The peel helps to exfoliate, fight acne and restore an even, radiant tone. It also smooths the skin’s texture. I use The Ordinary Peeling Solution which a lot of people say is a dupe for Drunk Elephant's peel. That's one of the main reasons why I love The Ordinary because you can get super high-quality products for pennies. Let me be honest I never tried Drunk Elephant and I don't plan on it (too many people have said that their products are overpriced and mediocre.) unless they are sending it to me for FREE. So I cant give my opinion on which works better. What I do know is that I've been using The Ordinary for a few months and its perfect for me.

I'll let you be the judge. See the details and tell us what you think, SAVE or SPLURGE.



Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin's topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. This combined 29% AHA/BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and for improved skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in color seasonally and this color variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. This formula is further supported with a crosspolymer form of hyaluronic acid for comfort, Vitamin B5 to assist healing and black carrot as an antioxidant

Ingredients: Glycolic Acid, Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Daucus Carota Sativa Extract, Propanediol, Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Salicylic Acid, Potassium Citrate, Lactic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Citric Acid, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Tasmannia Lanceolata Fruit/Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Xanthan gum, Polysorbate 20, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol.

This innovative at-home "facial" contains 25% AHA and 2% BHA, plus Drunk Elephant’s dream team blend of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids. It gently but efficiently resurfaces the skin as it exfoliates, getting rid of built-up dead skin cells by breaking down the substance that holds them to the surface. Babyfacial™ combines potent antioxidants like matcha, apple fruit, and milk thistle to calm and sooth with ultra-hydrating sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer and non-fragrant plant oils to replenish moisture and nourish. Chick pea flour brightens and balances the skin without over-drying, and pumpkin ferment delivers amazing enzymatic action. Niacinamide, a "cell-communicating" ingredient, effectively revives skin’s healthy look and feel as it brightens and tones. Appropriate for all skin types, Babyfacial will dramatically smooth texture, minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, unclog pores, and boost overall clarity—revealing fresh, radiant, baby-soft skin.

Ingredients: Water, Glycolic Acid, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Salicylic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Punica Granatum Fruit Ferment Extract, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Silybum Marianum Seed Extract, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Juice Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Powder, Cicer Arietinum Seed Powder, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Sodium PCA, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Dextrin, Polydextrose, Sorbitan Isostearate, Amylopectin, Niacinamide, Phytosphingosine, Lactic Acid, Propanediol, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Polysorbate 60, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.

Have you tried these two products? Which do you prefer?  I've only tried The Ordinary's peel but from the reviews, I read they give the same results. However, some say The Ordinary can be slightly irritating. I use The Ordinary weekly and that hasn't been my experience. The price point alone is worth giving it a try. For me..I'll SAVE!
