Guest Post: Steals Under $30

December 21, 2012

TGIF! Steals Under $30 (SUT) is one of my favorite blog reads; Kim of Penny Pincher Fashion has a crazy ability to scout out the absolute best finds, so I’m so thrilled she’s bringing it to TAGG. I mean, those heels? This girl rocks my ‘affordable style world!’

Hello TAGG readers!  I’m so thrilled to be guest posting for Alyson today & sharing with you some amazingly affordable pieces.  Steals Under $30 is a regular post of mine over on Penny Pincher Fashion – I put together an entire outfit, with each item $30 or less. I am pretty picky, too, so I only choose things that I would wear and are good quality.  I hope you enjoy my budget-friendly finds!!

1.  MANGO Cable-Knit Sweater - $29.99 || 2. JEWELIQ Curb Chain Necklace: $25.00 || 3. Kohl’s Gold Initial Necklace: $4.99

4. Forever 21 Notched Collar Coat: $27.86 || 5. Gap Tartan Tablet Case: $23.96 (code GAPGIFT)|| 6. ALDO Alberta Tote: $27.99

7. Gap Slim Cropped Pants: $22.39 (code GAPGIFT) || 8. H&M Scarf: $9.95 || 9. Cosmopolitan Billie Tassel Pumps: $10.00

Right? Those heels? Dying. This outfit is so perfect. Thanks again, Kim!


Happy Wednesday! Sharing with you today a guest post from Sarah of Chevrons & Stripes, one of my absolute favorites for interior design, inspiration and all around creative intel. She’s helped me discover so many great shops, artists and more and I’m sure by this post alone you can see why I adore Sarah. Personally I can’t wait to meet her this September when I’m in NYC for a Lucky Mag-hosted blogger conference and the start of fashion week. This girl is such a doll and is an inspiration for following her professional dreams (head to her site to learn more)! I’m just honored  she’s sharing here today…. 

Hi TAGG readers, Sarah from Chevrons & Stripes here covering for Alyson while she’s off on a well-deserved vacation!  When Alyson first reached out to me about creating a budget friendly interior design themed post, I knew exactly what direction I wanted to go in. As a student, I’m certainly not making huge home investments every day or even every year, but I can be fickle and my style is constantly evolving. When a floor-plan switch up (which I do quite often - you can imagine how my fiancé loves that…) doesn’t satisfy my yen for newness, I find that the addition of a few little accessories can do wonders. Done right, accessories can really change the look and feel of a room without having to overhaul the big ticket items like furniture, rugs, etc. Here some favorite items at $100 and under to breathe a bit of new life into your space on a budget!
1| I am a sucker for all things John Derian and these sea plant coasters are no exception ($100), 2| this bronze objet can function as a stylish paper weight on your desk or coffee table ($20), 3| you can’t go wrong with a stripey pillow in a punchy color ($56), 4| from the master of pottery, Jonathan Adler, this pinch vase is perfect filled with blooms OR on it’s own ($78), 5| brass palm candlesticks bring a splash of Palm Beach chic to your dining table ($26), 6| this lacquered box has the effect of agate without the price tag ($86), 7| a rosy set of bookends will warm up even the barest of shelves ($75), 8| trays are great for organization and creating pretty vignettes around your abode - I’m currently loving this rattan one($42), 9|turtle shell dish perfect for holding baubles ($78), 10| a unique kari herer print to spice up the walls ($30).
Thanks for having me Alyson!


Having. a. moment! A few weeks ago, the sweetest gals from a bullseye view, the behind-the-scenes site of Target, contacted me about contributing to its site. Umm, a forum to share my semi-unhealthy obsession/love of Target? Dream! Excited to share with you how Target helps me, your average gal trying to live a fabulous life, on a daily basis.

Head over to a bullseye view to see why I adore the bullseye including some of my major finds like the skinny work pants that rival any pricy version (promise!) and the cutest jewel sandals you must get if you have a little girl.



Want to know more about this chick who writes to you each day here at TAGG (The Average Girl’s Guide)? Find me on VMAC & Cheese,  with a Behind-The-Scenes glimpse featuring where I want to travel, books I want to read, what inspires me, you name it.
