    I know that I shill for benefit’s

    I know that I shill for benefit’s correcting products a lot, and I have absolutely no plans to stop–not when I continue to be absolutely amazed and satisfied with its solutions to all my skincare needs. The newest edition to my makeup case? benefit’s newly formulated Get Even, a face powder compact that eliminates shine and redness while evening out my skin for a smooth matte finish. A skeptic at first, given only three color options to choose from, one swipe of the powder (no. 2 for me) on my t-zone and I was convinced (I marveled at how well it seamlessly blended into my skin). I’ve since tested it out for a week of warm weather, and I must say, my skin has never looked better (and shine/blotch free). $28 and a free deluxe sample (enter code: JUMPSTART) from Sephora with any online purchase.

    Designer handbags are the must have item of the moment—an indulgent luxury good that (for some) is worth months of eating cheerios with watered-down milk just to afford one.

    Designer handbags are the must have item of the moment—an indulgent luxury good that (for some) is worth months of eating cheerios with watered-down milk just to afford one. The equivalent to what Manolos were back in the days when Sex and the City hadn’t yet made its way to the edited mediocrity of syndicated television. But don’t get waitlisted for a Birkin or drop a grand for a Chloe when you can get an immaculately constructed, gorgeously designed, and less overexposed Kooba handbag. There is no earthly reason why the Sienna bag, which imparts tame western style onto supple Italian leather, is on sale, considering it is part of Kooba’s current spring line and I personally saw it for full price at Barneys yesterday, but there it is, 20% off(!) for $476 at Pink Mascara. That’s an entire month of not having to forgo Starbucks and bikini waxes… unless, of course, you have a trust fund.

    Always a bridesmaid

    Always a bridesmaid, never someone to think that not getting married is something to be ashamed about. While your spring weekends may be booked with the weddings of friends, coworkers and acquaintances, you don’t cringe when the other guests ask about your own wedding date—you take pride in confidently announcing that you don’t know and aren’t worried about it. Welcome such questions with irony by wearing a huge, fake ring that says, “I don’t need a man to put a rock on this finger.” Wear it on your right hand, just to confuse those matchmaking busybodies (and not to scare away any potential groomsmen, even if you’re just seeking a short-term fling). Try out the TomKat (no explanation necessary, I’m sure), a gaudy, over-the-top choice for $35.95 from Inspired Silver.

    On April 30

    On April 30, Luella Bartley’s iconic Brit-punk-meets-prepster designs for Target’s GO International collection will vanish from the store racks forever, only to live on in the closets of those who have savvily snatched up these limited edition pieces. Since the collection’s launch in February, which was featured in our shopping guides, a trove of new items have been added into the mix (a necessity, as almost everything sold out within weeks of being launched!), and so it would be irresponsible to not to call your attention to these items before it’s too late… especially since selected items are now on sale (from prices that are already super-affordable). The best new pieces are those that built and extend the collection’s existing strengths: funky accessories, an edgy denim jacket, femininely cut dresses, and the introduction of swimwear… all of which remain true to Luella’s signature style. Free shipping on orders of three or more items (from the Women’s category).

    Must Haves

    For wandering about town or any other time that you need comfortable shoes for prolonged periods of walking

    For wandering about town or any other time that you need comfortable shoes for prolonged periods of walking, warm weather limits your options. Lace-up sneakers look awkward with skirts or cropped pants, and you won’t sacrifice your dress flats to everyday wear and tear. Sure, you could flip-flop it, but only if you can tolerate taking everywhere you’ve been along with you on the soles of your feet. These Sugar Solid Buckle Skimmers from Urban Outfitters are the perfect compromise between sneakers and ballet flats. Their canvas and vinyl composition make them durable for everyday use, while their buckled toe and slide-on style make them stylish to wear with your spring/summer duds. $38 and free shipping on your entire order with a shoe purchase (valid today) with code: SHOESHIP.
