5 Deals on Basics Under $5 Dollas

5 Bucks! 5 big ones! 5 Smackaroos! 5 greenbacks! These are some mighty fine staple items for just a teeny tiny price tag. I’ve personally tried all of these items and can vouch that they are awesome squared. Get prepared for a bargain induced coma!

  1. Walmart, Faded Glory Organic Stretch Cotton Tanks $4 each- These are a great staple tank top that I buy every year. Perfect for under a cardi, over a tee for some cute layering or just alone on those hot summa’ days.
  2. Forever21, Basic Fitted Tee $3.50 each- I have been buying these tees for YEARS and they actually hold up remarkably well. Great basic and I love that they are made longer for us long torso gals and the stretch helps them keep their shape all day long.
  3. Walmart, Lace Tanga Panties $3.70 each- I’m not trying to be all up in yo face with my undergarments, but I’d be doing you an injustice not to tell you that these are the bomb. And pretty damn cute too, if I don’t say so myself.
  4. Old Navy, Womens Flip Flops– $3.50 each- I feel like I’m preaching to the choir here about these, but they really are a staple in my book. I end up with about a bazillion of these each summer and they are so cheap that I can replace them every year and think nothing of it.
  5. Forever21, Polished Hoops $3.80 – Being that I feel naked without any earrings on, these are a savior on the mornings when I don’t wanna give much thought into anything. And um, UNDER.4.BUCKs. Need I say more??

The Fight of the Century

Hello again..Der here. I, like gazillions of you people out there, am a ginormous fan of anything JCrew produces. Man, they know how to make me drool over a ruffled cardigan or applique tee like no body’s business. BUT, there is a huge but here…many, many times they want to charge me something ridiculous like $500.00 for said cardigans and tees. Being the bargain hunter that I am, I find myself searching for these looks for less. And you are in luck because I plan to showcase my finds with you people over the next several days… it’s the CLASH OF THE TITANS: J.Crew vs Forever21

Round ONE

The Fight Part 1-A

J.Crew, Tiered Cami or Forever21, Tiered Cami
