8 Under $20: Wet Seal

There’s nothing that puts a smile on my face like finding a fantastic bargain, and since we all wanna look good in a crappy economy, finding those deals is even more important these days.  Each week I’ll feature one store/website where you can find eight A-dorable items for under $20 (not too shabby, right?).

This week the store of choice is Wet Seal.  Not only does it have cute and trendy clothes on the cheap, if you order from the website there’s a flat rate shipping fee of $5, which you can order just by clicking on any (or all!) of the items below.

Plaid is a super current trend that will only get bigger in the fall, and this tunic button down is the perfect way to rock it out.  The cut will accentuate curves so you’ll avoid looking like a lumber jack and this style will look cute with a pair of denim shorts/denim mini while the weather’s still warm, or with a cute pair of skinny jeans or leggings come fall.

This checked mini is adorable and will easily roll over into fall with a pair of tights and booties.

The nights are sure to get chillier (soon, unfortch) and this jacket is perfect for those late summer evenings, or to layer when the weather gets even cooler. Plus, the variety of bright colors will let you stand out in the sea of grey/black that comes with fall.

I am totes in love with this dress; the tulip hemline, the button details at the waistline… It’s hard to believe it’s only $19.50. And, as a major bonus, it’s probably the most versatile piece you can add to that wardrobe. It looks cute for day with a pair of gladiator sandals, sexy for night with some heels,  and it’ll easily translate into your fall wardrobe with tights and boots.

Flats are an essential in any girl’s shoe collection and it’s fun to have a pair or two that aren’t just your basic color to add a fun accent to any outfit.  The buffalo plaid print will add some kick (pun intended) to any ensemble and will look totally darling with a pair of black skinny jeans.

Basic tees are a staple in every wardrobe.  I’m a personal fan of v-necks as they let you go casual without giving up the sexy. At $3.99 a pop, you can grab this one up in every color.

Hats are a great way to add flair to a simple look (por ejemplo: jeans, a basic v-neck tee and some Chuck Taylors) and a crocheted beret is perfect for fall and winter.

You can’t go wrong with a simple sheer scarf to punch up an outfit and keep those hickeys covered. And at only $3, you can easily justify buying a different one for every day of the week.

    I'm a 30-something gal navigating life, love and now, a battle with breast cancer in New York City. Friends & family would describe me as a lover, a nurturer, a dork, a goofball, bright, headstrong, blunt and ridiculous in the best kind of way. Among my favorite things are food, laughter, shoes, working with little ones, devoting time to organizations where I can positively effect others lives, the San Diego Chargers, travel and my phenomenal network of friends and family across the globe. I might make you laugh, I might make you cry, but I certainly hope, if nothing else, I can touch your life with my tales of triumph & tribulation, the good, the bad and the ugly.
