I got it for the low...

In light of prices shooting up to the heavens, it's important to be thrifty. You can do this without looking cheap, I assure you!!! Just be innovative and use good judgement. 

I'll start out with the top. Both prices and temperatures seem like they're at all-time highs. So I stopped by Target to see what I could find that would be light and breezy to keep you cool.

I picked up a pack of size small v-necks in the men's section (since they don't make them for women) for around 6 or 7 dollars. A basic tee is so versatile and it's easy to throw on if you're in a rush. Pair with skinny jeans and colored sandals and you're good to go. Don't forget to add a chunky necklace to add more depth to your outfit.

Another frugal find I located at Old Navy. I usually have a "thing" about wearing rubber flip flops if you're not in the shower or by the pool, but Old Navy has decided to step its game up just a notch. 
These shoes are only $2.50, and they're available in an assortment of other colors. Slide into these, some khaki cargo shorts, and a tank top and you're guaranteed to be comfortable for the rest of the day!

Check out for more great deals! And if you're looking for cute jewelry for a good price, always stop by Forever 21 in your local mall, or shop online at!

Stay cool this summer, and as always, be fabulous!

JAYE Magazine! Because college is more than a classroom...

Happy Hump Day!!!

I have a special treat for the innovator in all of you! My friend Michael Jones has started his own magazine entitled "JAYE". He's in his second issue (July 2008) and might I add, it is FANTASTIC! Michael is the editor in chief, and is constantly engulfed in the magazine. After attending Fashion Week in February, he was inspired to start the publication. He lives and breathes fashion, and has put his ideas in motion with the help of his staff. (And I am blessed and proud to be Associate Fashion Editor on this staff!)

Visit to read his blog and also read the CURRENT ISSUE

Check out pages 72-73 for the "20 under $20" feature done by yours truly! :)

Be a part of fashion history and get obsessed with the magazine!!! Then when you see JAYE on the stands next to the Vogue's, the Cosmo's, and the Harper'sBazaar's, you can say "I remember the first issues of that magazine!"

Have a safe Wednesday!
