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!

Bona Fide Bargain #2: Betty Shops ‘Go Jane’

Today I’m going to share one of my very best fashion secrets… GoJane.com. Go Jane is my go-to website for the most adorable shoes (seriously, you’re going to squeal when you see their selection of designer knockoff shoes) and the cutest, well, everything. Their prices are great, it’s really easy to find coupon codes to use on the site, their customer service department is super easy to deal with, and their shipping is quick and reliable. Of course, you’ll need to keep in mind that you get what you pay for – you may find teeny imperfections on some items – but I can only recall one item out of many that I had a major problem with, so don’t let that possibility stop you from ordering. And sure, some of the clothes look like a cheap Hollywood Boulevard hooker wouldn’t touch them for any price, but overlook the trash and you’ll find some class. Promise. My best tip, though, for finding gems on Go Jane, is to check back regularly. They add new items every day, and the cutest things can be gone in a heartbeat, so if you see something you must have, buy it, or you may be very, very sorry.

Here’s a few new items that I just fell in love with:

I just adore this slate grey one-shoulder top. So romantic… this would be just glorious with a feathered headpiece or a flower perched on a chignon. Only $28.80.

I don’t know about you gals, but I have quite a shoe wardrobe… and this skirt is perfect for showing off your latest pair of platforms. Would be great for a night out dancing! P.S. When I say “dancing”, I do not mean grinding, I do not mean random gyrations in the middle of a sweaty mess of trampy girls and Jersey Shore guys, I mean real dancing. Like dancing the tango across an open dance floor with Al Pacino. Only $22.50 (for the skirt, not for dancing with Mr. Pacino).

And THIS. HOW SQUEE IS THIS??? You could make this a total pin-up look with some ruby lips and a handkerchief to tie up your ‘do, or throw it on with a pair of ripped jeans. Either way it’d be perfection. Only $24.20. Also, if you have any extra cash, grab one for me. I’m a small. Thanks.

Every Betty needs a selection of leopard print pieces in her closet. I love the cut on this – it’s long enough to put on with leggings, the v neck isn’t too low, so it’s completely appropriate for the office, and the print resembles a true leopard, not a manufactured one. Only $34.50. I’ll take one of these too if you don’t mind.

Ohhh. And these. I adore these. Aren’t they divine? I own these little velvet beauties in lime, so I can vouch for their fabulosity. Super high heel? Check. 5 1/4 inches, to be exact. Just right for showing off those stems, ladies. You can take your choice of seven – yes, I said seven – colors. A true bona fide bargain at only $21.60. What a fun way to spice up an outfit!

So, if I’ve done my math correctly (just FYI, I only do math if it involves pretty things on sale, so I don’t get quite as much practice as I ought), for a mere $131.60, you could own all 5 pieces featured here! Not bad, if I do say so myself.

Happy shopping!
