    Product review: Denim from Maurice's + $20 giftcard giveaway!

    My camera finally bit the dust. I'm sorry that I can't provide pics for this review...

    I was contacted by the lovely folks at Maurices and was sent a pair of jeans to try.  I received the Taylor bootcut jeans to review (the pic above), and I must say, they are becoming one of my favorite pairs.  They are 99% cotton, 1% spandex, and are very lightweight and comfortable.  I was concerned about the jeans stretching out too much throughout the day, but they didn't.  I wore them another time after the first time before I washed them, and they still held their shape.  The wash of the jeans are not too dark and I love the slight distressing on the hems and on the pockets. I had to request a smaller size because they tend to run a little bigger, so keep that in mind if you're considering ordering this particular style. These are definitely a keeper for me, I love them!

    Now, time for a giveaway!

        $10 off $20 coupon from KMart

        Well this is rare...

        Kmart is offering a $10 off $20 purchase coupon that's good until 5-15-10.  I don't think this coupon is going to be available much longer because it's limited to the first 40,000 downloads, so hurry and print yours!

        ***UPDATE (3/19)***  According to Swag Grabber, Kmart is no longer accepting these coupons.  WTF?   Some of the commenters said they had no problems using it while others said that their stores wouldn't take them.  I would call my local store first to make sure.

        Hearts and Crosses, Spiders and Webs.

        Hey Cheapalicious Readers!

        I am soooo accessory-obsessed. I can never have too many. No matter how my weight goes up or down, accessories always fit. My favorite accessory? Earrings. I can't get enough of them. The weirder the better. I was cleaning out my closet, and found a $5 Target gift card, so I checked out their earrings and fell in love with these babies...check out those lovely clearance stickers.

        Both sets are from the @tract line which always features funky pieces. Both sets were $2.24 each. Great use of a gift card.

        Cybershopping: Shop The Look

        While doing a google search on Alice In Wonderland- inspired jewelry, I came across an accessories website called Shop The LookI found what I was looking for- even though it's not available for purchase yet- but I decided to browse the site further to see what they had to offer.

        Prices on Shop The Look range from $4.80 to $26.  Being the cheapskate that I am, I usually don't pay over $10 for a piece of costume jewelry, but I saw some really cool pieces that I liked, so I bit the dust and ordered.  I purchased the "Queen of the Jungle" stretch ring for $10. and the oversized bow necklace  for $12.  The shipping was $6.95, plus I used a 50% off coupon code,  so my order ended up being $17.95.

        I placed my order on February 19, and it arrived on March 1. The jewelry came packaged in bubble wrap and their own little velvet pouches. 

        I'm pleased with my purchase.  The necklace is my new favorite and I always get compliments on it.  I would definitely order from Shop The Look again, but only if I have a coupon. If it's something I really like, I don't mind spending over $10 for a piece of costume jewelry, but the shipping charge has to go.  When that Alice in Wonderland-inspired necklace is finally available for purchase, hopefully there would be a free shipping coupon available (lol).

        $10 Find: American Eagle Glimmer Glitter Flats at Payless

        Hi Cheapies, this is Shatira and I stopped by Payless on my way home from work on Monday. I was armed with my 15% off coupon, so I wanted to use it before I forgot about it. Check out my fly flats:

        American Eagle Glimmer Glitter Flats, Payless

        I wanted something I could slip on to dress up a casual outfit, especially with springtime on the horizon. I can't wait to wear them with skinnys on a casual day. How would you wear these?

        FYI: They are $22.99 on the website, but I've gone to 2 different Payless stores where they were on clearance for $10.


        Christian Siriano Spring 2010 collection available now @ Payless

        The Christian Siriano for Payless Spring 2010 collection is now available for purchase.  I'm kind of feeling the middle shoe, although I know I wouldn't be able to walk in them.  When I first read that the above styles were going to be available in the stores, I didn't believe it (because you know that first batch of styles that was supposed to be in stores never happened).  I got proved wrong.  I wonder if these are going to be a big seller?  Each pair is $79.99.  What do you think of the Spring 2010 collection?
