You & Me & 5 Bucks

One of my all time favorite movies is Reality Bites with Winona Ryder & Ethan Hawke, and one of many quotable scenes is the “You and me and five bucks“.  Of course, in that scene, the characters were referring to being able to have a good time on a coffee & cigarette budget.  Granted nowadays a coffee may run you 5 bucks, but in fashion there can be such a thing as having a good time and looking great on a budget. So just because (like me) you can’t buy those $400 Miu Miu sunglasses doesn’t mean that there aren’t some affordable knock-offs to be had.

On my recent family visit to San Diego, I found this hole-in-the-wall shop at the mall with quite reasonable prices, including a pair of sunglasses for only 5 bucks, that are ringers for the brand name ones I’ve been eyeing lately.  I was super ecstatic, nabbed them right away, and walked away feeling like true fashionista winner, hahaha.

  

So remember just because you can’t drop down big cash on a pair of sunglasses, doesn’t meant that you can’t look and feel like a million bucks.  Shop your local boutique shop or go to downtown, and you will find that $5 treasure, I promise!

  

You and Me and 5 Bucks, Baby!

Cookie Corner

Before the weekend’s over, I wanted to share my weekly Cookie deals, trends, & specials!

 

Deals

This week I’m offering the Sunray Statement Cuff at a 40% discount! This piece is one of my favorite pieces in the Summer Cookie Lee Collection because of the pop of blue and blush colors.  I also love it because of the crystals that make it bling all around.  It really does make a Summer statement.

Of course, you can’t have Summer without wearing some natural vibe accessories!  That’s why I picked these great pieces that can be used together, alone, or can be combined with other accessories in your wardrobe!
