Shop: Mango, what you should be wearing

I don't want to hear complaints any longer about what to buy, what to wear or that you can't afford something.  Put down that Big Mac right now and put your $4 into your piggy bank while you grab a big glass of water instead (trust me, you will thank me later).  Mango, again, shows girls what they should be looking like and guys, it is affordable.  Most everything on this page is under $100.  Big Mac money. Seriously.  When you go to the Mango store, please resist the urge to judge the stuff as tacky.  I get it. The stores are ridiculously ugly--bad lighting, bad merchandising and all that jazz.  However, look past the florescent lighting and think of the summer collection, styled by style goddess Geraldine Saglio.  She got it so right and this is so me.  Loose, not tight, casually sexy.  So, mess your hair, line your eyes, and get your best safari gone sexy outfit from Mango. Go. Now.  Run.  Wear these clothes and thank me later.

Say What? Cartier Juste un Clou for less

Cartier’s Juste un Clou jewelry collection is back for a limited time only and features bracelets and rings shaped out of a single nail in 18-karat white, yellow or rose gold. The pieces range in price from $2,175 – $34,000.  Yes. You heard me. That is the price.  The collection was originally introduced back in 1970, and is back on will adorn the fingers and wrists of the fashion elite. A quick Etsy search turned up this gem, and for $54, a steal compared to that of Cartier, while still giving the same look.
