In a brave attempt to suppress my desire for a pair of horrendously overpriced, but oh-so-cute skinny cargo pants, I'm dedicating this week to fabulous finds under $30. After all, who doesn't appreciate a cute, stylish and inexpensive item to add a little color and spunk to a summer wardrobe, especially at this time of year.
Local readers - snag a fun and funky summer t-shirt or tank at this weekend's Marika Charles factory sale in Rotterdam. Seconds (tees) are usually $25 or less and they come in an endless array of colors and designs. Check the website for hours and directions. If you haven't yet been, GO, you'll be happy that you did. Marika and her brother are doing great stuff right here (and selling it to women in the know all over the world for $$$$). Sign their guestbook to be notified of upcoming sample sales, which happen about 4-5 times a year.
Not local? No problem. I'm a big fan of J. Crew's embellished t-shirts right now. Pair with a jacket for stuffy work environments or a lightweight cardigan for not-so-stuffy places. Super versatile and not so boring.
