Prom dresses under $100

Although prom is a few short months away, now is the time to start shopping around for a dress. A lot of my teen Cheap Chicas out there really don't have a lot of money to spend on a gown, and why should you spend a lot on a gown that you're going to wear for one night anyway? Here are some dresses I've found for under $100. Hell, some are even under $20! Throw on some fab jewelry and a cute clutch, you'll be the belle of the ball. You could also try your local thrift stores, consignment shops, and bridal outlets. Or, if you know someone who sews, just grab the material and pattern and have them make it.


Star style: Mary J. Blige's thigh high boots

pic scanned from CD insert

Cheap Chica reader Kammy wanted to know where she could find some over the knee boots similar to Mary J. Blige's in this pic. At one point, I didn't really care for them- at least not on me . For some reason, it conjured up images of the "ladies of the evening" that you see strolling along the boulevard on any given night. But, over the knee boots have grown on me. I love them worn with a pair of skinnies with a cute tunic sweater, or a cute mini dress or skirt. Here are a few pairs that I've found that are not exactly like Mary's, but they are cute and won't put a dent in your pocket.

So.... what did you get for Christmas?

Hey Chicas! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Did you get what you want? Did you get anything at all? All I got was money and a Kay Jewelers gift card that I'm not even going to use. I got my Christmas money this weekend, so I bought myself a few things from Dots with it yesterday.










  • black skinny jeans $16
  • vest $15
  • top $13
  • checkered belted top $15


I also bought a pair of chocolate brown boots, a metallic cami , and a belt. The rest of money is being put away for a rainy day. Gee, I forgot to look for something to wear for New Year's Eve. That's okay, I got this coming weekend to find something.

Today's video: I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

"I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" by Gayla Peevey is one of my favorite Christmas songs. I could listen to this song all day. Here's a cute video I found on You Tube with some guy lipsynching to the song. What's your favorite Christmas song? Holla!

Weekend finds: A new Goodwill has opened...

I checked out the grand opening of the new Goodwill here in Ft. Myers, and man, was that sucka packed. I ended up leaving about a half hour after I got there because my back started hurting to the point where I could hardly stand up straight (I have a bad back), so I just bought these two purses and a pair of plaid trousers that ended up being too small. I'm definitely checking out this new Goodwill again.

Today's video: Touch me... all night long!

I don't know why this song all of a sudden popped into my head the other day. This was my jam when I was about ten or eleven. Takes me back to memory lane when Club MTV used to come on, lol. I didn't know this was actually a cover of Fonda Rae's "All Night Long". Y'all older folks probably know who Fonda Rae is, because I sure as hell don't, lol. Enjoy!

Lunchbreak shopping: $3 tops

In this past Friday's lunchbreak shopping hour, I drove over to the new Steve and Barry's that was supposed to have opened a couple of weeks ago. It still isn't open despite the fact that they keep advertising for it's grand opening. Whatever. The mall is right next door, so I ended up going to JC Penney and Rave where I found some tops for $3 on their sale racks.




  • fuschia top, brown tunic, and glittery tank, all $3 from Rave: I'm thinking about giving the fuschia top away to one of my cousins or probably keeping it for spring/summer. The mustard colored glittery tank looks really cute on. With the right accessories, it would be a cute top to wear on New Year's Eve.

  • cropped swing jacket $3, JC Penney: Scored this off of the "green tag" rack.
