Friday Fix: Steals and Deals!

I have long been a secret fan of Chadwicks, the discount clothing magazine.  They require patience and a good eye (there is absolutely no point in saving money on something that looks cheap).  But every now and then, I'll find something fabulous.  And when I do, I wear it like it's from Bergdorf's.  True story: I once wore a Chadwicks dress that cost me $34 to a meeting with the President of the United States.  And it looked fantastic with a pair of Oscar de la Renta suede heels. 

Here are some of my favorite spring picks:

Audrey Sheath Dress, $49.99.  This is the cutest.  The green and white is going to give Lilly Pulitzer a run for her money! Also available in cantaloupe, black and white, and pink.

I'm head-over for this yellow ruffle "Charlotte" dress at $49. Also comes in blue, apricot, green, and black and white polka dot - would probably look very parisian, no?

This skirt-suit will be making its way into my closet shortly. Very chic little number - I can't decide if I want the yellow or the navy. Maybe both at $59? Also in apricot, white, and green.

This Preppy Blazer has a future at $39, and the blue Belted Jacket at $49 would be adorable with a pair of pink capris and an Hermès scarf tied over the hair.

Really cute skirt at $29 - the styling reminds me a bit of J.Crew.

A final word: I know you've heard it before, but the adage is tried and true: invest more in your accessories than your clothes if you have to choose. Cotton looks like cotton whether you spent $100 or $1,000, but you can rarely pass off pleather as the real thing (or have it last more than a season). Quality bags and shoes raise everything else you're wearing to the same standard.

P.S. Chadwicks usually has some sort of email deal running, so be sure to sign up - you can almost always get 10% to 20% off your order!
