Bona Fide Bargain #7

Hey girl! I’ve been super busy lately but I had to show you what I ordered:

This is Milani’s Paint Eyeshadow Palette. $7.99. That’s right. $7.99. Believe it, baby. I’ve been using Milani cosmetics for several years now, and I have been thrilled with everything I’ve purchased. Nail color, eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipsticks… they’re all amazing. Milani’s colors are rich, bold, and they last all day. Do yourself a favor and place an order this month (or, if you’re fortunate enough to live near a store that carries Milani products, pick one up) – this particular palette is a limited edition.

You can thank me later.

Happy shopping!

Bona Fide Bargain #6

Ladies, ladies, ladies. Apologies are in order once again. I’ve been slacking with my posts. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been hunting bargains for mys… I mean, for you.

I’m going to share one of my little secrets with you today: Denim from wetseal.com makes your butt look marvelous. I can personally vouch for that. Without fail, the fit is perfect with no alterations necessary, the spandex doesn’t get saggy halfway through the day (you know what I’m talking about – sometimes you start out with skinny jeans that end up feeling like Mom jeans), the colors don’t fade after repeated washings, the price couldn’t be any better… I can’t say enough good things about their denim!

This style is my personal favorite:

The Fashionista Skinny Jean is just amazing. Really. Spend the $26.50 and you will not be sorry. The back pockets are tulip shaped, which does wonders for everyone. Also, they are offered in three different lengths – I’m 5’2″ and the ‘short’ length is just perfect for me. I love the skinny fit with oversized tops or cozy sweaters, and the added spandex makes these feel like you’re wearing your cozy PJ bottoms. Just keep in mind that if you wear these out, people will want to touch your butt. So be prepared.

Happy shopping!

It’s only rock ‘n roll… but I like it. Thank you to Miss Cathy for these totally awesome guitar earrings!!! Please do yourself a big favor and check out her shop. Her pieces are super cute and the prices? Amazing. These were only $5 plus shipping.

I just love the clear acrylic – they’ll go with everything in my closet. Now all I have to do is check my local concert schedule and I am good to go!

Happy shopping!

Betty + Etsy #4

Hey you! I want you to see the beeyouteeful vintage dress I found at Bad Cholla Vintage. Thanks to the lovely Miss Megan are in order for another perfect Etsy transaction!

The teal shade of the dress is even more beautiful in person… and I was thrilled to find that it fits like it was made just for me. It is a maxi dress, so I will most likely be shortening it at least a few inches – one can only wear so much polyester in the summer months before one does not smell as fresh as a lady should. I can’t wait to pair it with a peacock feather hairpiece and some disco-worthy heels!

Happy shopping!

Bona Fide Bargain #4

Hello, sweethearts! I ran across this adorable little top the other day on CharlotteRusse.com and knew I had to share it with you… after I purchased one for my very own. At only $18.99, I couldn’t pass it up!


How incredibly perfect is this for an easy pin-up look? Add some winged eyeliner, red lips, skinny jeans, snag yourself some tickets to a Reverend Horton Heat show, and you are good to go for a fab night out on the town!

I’m going to share one more vintage-inspired find from Charlotte Russe with you too… I literally squealed when I saw it:

$37 for both pieces makes this a pretty affordable swimsuit… and the black and white is a nice alternative to a yellow polka dot bikini!

Happy shopping!
