Mango’s Premium Knot Linen-Blend Top $49.99

No seriously, I do.  I’ve sold and or donated most of my clothes and am lacking spring and summer clothing *insert violins here*  Any who, I’m hoping that rebuilding my spring/summer collection won’t take long nor be too expensive…

So far, my list includes florals, whites, and other bright colors.  I want pumps, wedges and sandals in black, nude, neon and even clear (or jelly).  I’m also in love with crop tops.  Not the belly crop tops but just like the picture to your right.

Where will I be shopping?  I’m actually going to start with thrift/consignment stores.  Then, I’m going to visit the usual suspects: H&M, Zara, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Asos, BCBG, JCPenny, Target and Aldo.  With all those stores and the upcoming Memorial Day sales, I should find something, right?

My perfect price is 30 bucks.  Shoes, 30 bucks…SOLD! Tops, 30 bucks…SOLD! Jeans, 30 bucks….SOLD!

Although online shopping presents the most options, I’m really excited to shop next weekend when I travel to my home city (New Orleans).

Who wants to donate? 🙂

    I came across your beauty blog and

    really love your posts – honest, personal, and SUPER useful

    makeup tips that I know many women love too!
    I lead all PR efforts for The Salon Outlet, a new online

    For our big launch, we are partnering with the hottest beauty

    and makeup bloggers, so I’m reaching out to you to see if we

    could work together. Here are different ideas we have:

    exchange, ask you to write up a review, with a link back to Can also be done in video form if you


    3) Product Giveaway. You can host a contest for your blog

    readers and we’ll send your winner a product. Our makeup brush

    sets would be great for this.

    4) Video Tutorial using our Products. If you are planning to do

    makeup tutorials in the near future, use our makeup tools and

    mention The Salon Outlet in the tutorial.
    We’ve got limited spots as we have several bloggers interested

    already, but after I saw your tres chic blog I wanted to see if

    you’d like to take advantage of this opportunity. Check us out

    at We’re making final decisions by
