Bag 911 + Shop Suey Giveaway


As a girl that always prefers to buy color, I don’t own too many black bags…but I know many of you have a hard time getting out of the black bag rut!

One of my best friends recently asked me to find her a fabulous non-black bag that could easily transition from work to weekend and that looked like a true designer buy.  Her only requests were that it had to have some eye-catching details and that it retailed for under $75.

After striking out all weekend, I remembered one of my favorite on-line boutiques for celebrity and designer inspired handbags… Shop Suey!  Their bags are affordable, totally stylish and reflect some of the hottest trends in fashion!  I found this TDF (to die for) Marla Satchel there for only $58 and it comes in Brown, Red and Navy… so there’s plenty of colors to choose from!!

Now for the FREE stuff…

I contacted Heather at Shop Suey to ask about a giveaway for you guys and she very generously offered to sponsor one!  One lucky reader will win this MARLA bag and just in case you don’t totally love this style…if you win, you can pick any bag off the Shop Suey site as your prize!!!  All you have to do is:

1. Go to Shop Suey by clicking here;

2. Look through the handbags on their site and then leave a comment on this post with your favorite Shop Suey style;

3. On Tuesday, January 27th, I will pick a number at random and the author of that corresponding comment will win their favorite Shop Suey bag!

GOOD LUCK!!  Shop Suey also has a special code for all of your CheapChica readers…use discount code cheapchica at check out to receive 20% off (no expiration date) your next purchase!!

NOTE: Winner will be notified by 3pm on 01/27/09 in a separate post and via email.  Contest is only open to US residents.

Fallen Star


So here’s a great example of how fashion can go terribly, terribly wrong when you don’t trust your own instincts. In the picture on the left we have Ms. Simpson, looking ultra-chic in a boyfriend blazer and bad-ass knee high boots, arriving for her “Fancy” fragrance launch at some suburban Macy’s in the Valley. And on the right we have her at the actual launch…um, excuse me?

What happened?

Did she stop into Rave on the way to the store from the parking lot and let the assistant manager style her????

I mean I can’t even begin to list out all of the fashion sins that this dress is responsible for , so I will say is this…she clearly knows how to dress (see picture on the left) but since she won’t stop with the too tight, too ruched, and too much boob I have permanently cast her onto my worst dressed list. Let’s hope she was just using this desperate dress to try and get Tony’s attention!!
