Must Haves

You rely on two things to wake you up in the morning

You rely on two things to wake you up in the morning: 1) a steamy, rejuvenating shower, and 2) coffee—lots and lots of coffee. How much more ready for the day would you be if you could combine the two? The lalicious Coffee Bean Sugar Souffle is made with 100% Arabica Coffee Grounds, which serve as both a scent to awake your mind and a scrub to slough off dull skin. The whipped body scrub acts as both an exfoliant and a moisturizer to leave skin both revived and creamy. As part of Versame Luxe’s Last Chance sale, its 50% off for $16 (its either months of stimulating showers or four mornings of Starbucks lattes—which you would rather get?).

Remember sterling silver?

Remember sterling silver? That classic, simple and yet elegant metal you used to wear before faux gold and chunky turquoise overtook your jewelry box last year? Angela Tong’s handcrafted jewelry will make you reignite your love affair, as her designs make you see that silver is anything but basic. Having made jewelry for powerhouses like Tiffany & Co. and Mikimoto, Tong has now launched her own line, which is still high quality (solid sterling silver), but much more accessible. And with our own exclusive 15% off discount, her fresh designs just became more affordable—use the code Papierdoll at checkout now through August 15.

They say the devil is in the details.

They say the devil is in the details. But the ultra-feminine touches of lace, ribbon and sequins incorporated into Gail Schneider’s oh-so-sweet tank tops makes it seem as though the details are beholden to seraphim. Gail’s one-of-a-kind tops are the antithesis of the evil and pejorative term “wife beater,” instead offering the rather spiritual qualities of soft fabric, rich hues and whimsical design. Like manna from heaven, Gail is offering a 20% discount plus free shipping for August and September to all ThriftyChick readers, just mention ThriftyChick when you order (via email; the tees are priced at $58-$84). Choose a design from an angelic host: Sophia, Adelle, Limor, etc., and then choose the color that best captures your spirit.

Must Haves

Button

Button, button, who’s got the button? Mike & Chris hoodies do. The bold incorporation of buttons for both aesthetic and semi-functional purposes gives these hoodies a childlike nostalgia and a militaristic, cargo-esque edge. They are the casual chic item for the fall, with a distinctive yet unique look (I have the hoodie on the left, in hunter green). Thus they are nearly impossible to find on sale, but that is why you turn to ThriftyChick: use the code Papierdoll at Shop Robertson and you’ll get 20% off Mike & Chris and any other hot fall designers in the online boutique that features Geren Ford, Bella Mia, T Bags and more.
