“Ruche: (pronounced roosh) A ruffle or pleat of lace, muslin or other fine fabric used to decorate clothes” is the definition that graces the first page of this lovely online boutique. I was certain these would be far above my price range, and imagine my surprise when the prices of the above items were as follows: Striped tunic $32.99, Little polka dot dress $34.99 and skirt, $36.99. (Click the pics above to go to the site directly and purchase)

This site’s motto is “A modern boutique with a vintage touch” and you see this touch throughout the entire site. I want to plan my entire wardrobe from their items and had to stop myself from getting into trouble. Ruche is here to stay and thank goodness it’s affordable!

So here we are again, looking for the ultimate sale on Chanel, YSL, etc. This time on haute look. It’s based on a count down where certain lines go on sale for three days at a time, keeping the merchendise fresh and interesting. It’s fun to scout, and believe me, there are times when you do find awesome, affordable items. So check it out and tell me what you think.

P.S. The dresses above are $70 and $85. I can’t wait to grab one.

I like the thrill of new clothes, shoes, bags, or even books. I find myself “needing” quite a few items the very moment  my paycheck hits the bank. Shoes on sale, sweaters, etc. So when it comes to clothes, I honestly try my best to save as much money as possible. And although these suggestions may be familiar, one can never be reminded too much!

1. Discount Stores: If you remember my previous post about Ross, then you know how I feel about these types of stores. I found a gorgeous Calvin Klein suit from Ross for $31. I also absolutely love their kitchen items. I won’t always find what I need, but for sheets, spatulas and the like, I’ve found nothing better. Similar stores such as Marshalls also produce great stuff. Yes you may have to look around a bit, but hey, its worth it. Read the rest of this entry »
