pretty + cheap

white hot

Picture 1

Nothing screams summer like a pair of white jeans. This year, I’ve been on the lookout for a pair that’s slim-fitting, but not super tight, so these jeans from the Gap look very promising ($59.50). If you’ve ever owned a pair of white jeans, you know how difficult it can be to find the perfect pair, but once you find them, you have an item that’s sure to brighten your entire summer wardrobe.

Bonus: If the pants get stained beyond repair after a few too many drunken nights on the beach, use scissors to snip the pants into knee grazing shorts. Send them through the wash a few times to roughen up the hemline, and voila—effortlessly chic shorts.

ruffles make me happy

I’ve been so good about resisting unnecessary purchases lately, but when I saw this pretty silk top on clearance at the Gap for $13.99, I had to buy it.  There’s just something about ruffled tops that I can’t resist.

I fell into the Gap again… oh, and I heart free stuff

Sorry to write about the Gap two days in a row, but OMFG! So, I drop in on my lunch break today because I had such great luck over the weekend with those long sleeved thermal tees, and I end up finding a cable knit sweater for 10 dollars! And it’s not even an ugly color. See the picture above, look how pretty it is. I’m in shock. Go to the Gap, now.

ALSO .. I didn’t post yesterday because I’ve been a major workaholic lately, but I heard about this funky cosmetics litigation thing, and I thought it had to be a hoax until I walked by Saks and they were GIVING AWAY FREE MAKEUP. We’re talking Chanel, Clinique, Lancome, Estee Lauder. I was in heaven.

Basically, it’s been a great week for us bargainistas.

gotta love comfy cotton tees

After the holidays, I think I was a little shopped-out, but I finally made it to the mall this weekend just in time for some major clearance sales at the Gap. I picked up two thermal waffle tees (gray and pink) for just 8 dollars each. I love these types of tees because I can wear them with jeans on the weekend or wear them to bed with a pair of flannel pajama pants. Confession: I may have worn the pink one on Sunday and the gray one today… shhhh!
