Stuff that makes girls (like me) happy!

Today I am going to go off on a bit of a non-photography related road.

We all know the economy is a little rough right now.. For all of us. What’s a girl to do when she needs cool new stuff, but she really can’t afford a trip to Saks? Well, there are options! Yesterday I was reading my newest Vogue, when low and behold I see that one Mr Alexander McQueen is launching a diffusion line at Target! My heart nearly lept out of my chest! I know Target has been teaming with big name designers for a while, but McQueen happens to be one of my favorites!

You can find the whole collection previewed over at Nylon Magazine but here are a few of my favorites!

I love vests. I have always loved vests. I also love a little jacket. I could totally see myself sporting that jacket to your wedding!

I like this look too, although I’d probably wear it with jeans and not leggings. I can’t quite get myself to go the legging route, because I’d feel naked.

Now that you’ve got some sweet threads (yes, I went there), you need … shoes! Of course. 🙂
Payless has been totally rocking the guest designers as well! You probably saw my sweet shoe purchases a few weeks back, two pair were from Payless, including the gladiators.

Here are a few current pairs that Payless has that I really like!

Some other cool places to shop and save your bucks:

ELF Cosmetics – A lot of people have heard about this place. I have ordered from them a couple of times. I didn’t like most anything that was ‘face’ related, but their eye shadows are boss and most of their lip stuff is really good too. Also, their brushes are pretty darn good for being so incredibly cheap!
Sam Moon Trading Co – Not sure if they have actual stores anywhere but Dallas but they sell about every kind of accessory! Handbags, belts, jewelry, lots of fun stuff, for super affordable prices.

So, if you have any cool, inexpensive places you love to shop… post them for me to check out!

    Fun post! I love that pair of blue heels… I’m not a heel kind of girl most of the time, but I could see myself wearing those! -Leandra
