Cheap & Chic, San Francisco, TravelCheap & Chic: January 2010

ONE. Ella Moss Mena Dress — This pretty dress from Ella Moss is on sale at Anthropologie for only $39.95! This is not your typical knit dress–its pleats and banded waist create a gorgeous silhouette and fitted shape. I love the red and gray tones and think it would look super cute this winter with a pair of cozy tights or black boots. – Nina

TWO. Jennifer Elizabeth Sparkle Bracelet — I’m obsessed with this sparkly piece from Jennifer Elizabeth! With the vintage rhinestones, it’s got the perfect amount of bling, but still remains understated and classic. You can wear this around your wrist everyday, and at only $50, I’d say it’s a good buy! – Connie

THREE. Walking Tours of San FranciscoSan Francisco, surely tops my list as one of the chicest cities in the country, and in my opinion, one of the best ways to explore is to take a leisurely stroll through it’s most beautiful areas.  San Francisco City Guides, in a partnership with the San Francisco Parks Trust,  now has daily walking tours that explores all parts of the city..for free! Whether you want to walk around the Embarcadero or explore the Victorian architecture, there is something for you.  Check out the full schedule on  – Carolyn

FOUR. Tarte Flower Child Eye Palette — Having already tried Tarte’s Femme Naturale Refillable Natural Eyeshadow Palette, I can’t wait to get the new, limited-edition, sure-to-sell-out Flower Child Eyeshadow Palette for Spring 2010 – a steal at $44. Created by celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow, one of my favorite makeup artists (she’s done Vera Farmiga, Claire Danes and just about every cool celebrity there is), the palette is simply gorgeous — and comes with one of the best double-ended eyeshadow brushes I’ve ever used. – Charli

FIVE. The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance: A Memoir by Elna Baker — Almost everyone’s sure to find themselves with some time to kill at some point – in a plane, car, or even just at a boring party at a relative’s house. When that happens, I suggest you grab this book. Elna writes the story of her life as a Mormon woman who moves to NYC in search of love and a career and it’s one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time. I laughed out loud while learning things about the Mormon culture that I never would have found elsewhere.  When I read it over the holidays, I enjoyed it so much that I was actually sad when my flight landed because I knew I’d have to finish it the next day. Now that’s the sign of a good book! – Stacey
