“Cheap” and “Chic.” Oxymorons, right? Not here on Chic This Week! A recent reader’s comment on my blog prompted me to start a monthly “Cheap Chic” post to show you how to have a fab, but frugal, lifestyle here in the Tri-State. Just because it’s chic does NOT mean it’s expensive.
Not to go into too many details – but just so you know where I’m coming from – I am the daughter of a hard-working secretary and teacher. We didn’t have much money at all. But my parents were very smart with what little money they did make, and – regardless if it was prunes or a prom dress – my mom always did her homework before she made any purchase. Even though some of her tactics were a little over the line (making me order 12-and-under meals when I was clearly old enough to drive), I still carry many of her money-saving mantras with me today.
So, this post will be one of many future public service announcements to all you recessionistas out there. I have four fantastic Cheap Chic Labor Day sales you need to check out!

Fun side note about Tuscany: The Cincy Chic staff and I had a makeover party there in the beginning of the year and it was so much fun! We spent the whole morning there – started with muffins and mimosas – and we got hair, skin and nail treatments. It was a great time because they’re well-equipped for a large crowd. Just an FYI if you have a group of gals and you want to have a pamper party!
