Accessories, Beauty, Cheap & Chic, NailsCheap & Chic: March 2010

ONE. Gap Cuffed Boyfriend T – I love this simple tee from the Gap! It’s soft, comfy, and slouchy, like if you were to throw on your boyfriend’s t-shirt. But, it still has little feminine touches–cuffed sleeves, a wide scoop neckline, and a flattering longer length. There are lots of pretty, bright colors to choose from and they are all on sale from $12.99-$14.99. The Boyfriend T is definitely a cheap and chic option for an effortlessly classic style. – Nina

TWO. Le Metier de Beaute Le Petit Poudrier Eye Creme Kit — It’s quite rare that you’ll find Le Metier de Beaute on anything other than our Lust List. After all, this ultra luxe brand comes with an ultra luxe pricetag.  That’s why we were so excited to learn about the newest palette from their collection- eye, lip and face sets- retailing for…wait for it……..$36!   These credit card size palettes come with just enough product and the packaging is slim enough to slide into the tiniest clutch.  Each palette contains the same high tech formulations found in larger Le Metier products.  My favorite is the Naughty Neutrals Lip Palette– the lighest color in the set adds a pop of “WOW” dimension to anyone’s lips.  – Carolyn

THREE. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure — I love trying out new nail polish colors, but I really hate paying a lot for them because I have a notoriously short attention span when it comes to different shades. That’s why I’m really into Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure polishes. There are 42 different shades in the collection, so you’ll find everything from light pinks to dark blacks (my current favorite is Gray by Gray, which looks exactly like it sounds and is perfect for spring). The polishes are great for busy people too since each color already has a Base Coat, Strengthener, Growth Treatment, and Top Coat already in it – it’s a one step manicure! The colors dry quickly and last a long time without chipping (always a bonus). Best of all, the polishes are under $10 at drugstores, so you can afford to experiment with shades you never would’ve thought to try before. Love that! – Stacey

FOUR. Martin + Osa Printed Dot Tank — I’m having a moment with polka dots! I just ordered this tank in Cricket Navy and can’t wait for it to arrive. I love the playful oversized dots and the slender shape of the tank. I imagine that I’ll be layering it underneath a navy blazer, and as the weather warms up, I’ll be pairing it with slim jeans and these Jeffrey Campbell sandals (which was also part of my Martin + Osa order). – Connie

FIVE. Anthropologie Shadowed Vine Scarf — This beautiful, light and airy Shadowed Vine Scarf is a MUST for any outfit — in fact, I’m considering getting it in several colors (starting with the coral-y “red”), which sort of defeats its budget-friendliness. But at $28, how can I resist?!? – Charli
