My Summer Style Crush

There Isn't A Backpack We Lack

I'm feeling on the backpack these days. It's not the most chic thing to tote, but I feel like the fresh sizes, bold shapes and different styles that are out there right now, warrant a little bit of love when worked with some backpack swagger. Looking ahead to Fall, I'm most interested in the Cheap Chic global print of the Olsonboye bag at JC Penney for $35.

If you want to spend some dough, this Diane Von Furstenberg Printed & Canvas pack is gorgeous.

For the 80's lover, a stone washed denim is totally tubular.

And if you're into a more grown-up look, this double fabric from Romwe is perfect for all adult boys and girls.

Are You A Nasty Gal?

I think a two-piece, tummy shirt paired with matching print leggings is super sexy in the Summer time. Especially when it's all retro, and fitted like a dew-y Italian, Sophia Loren goddess would wear. My style assistant, Chi Chi rocks this look like a champ. Even with her "curvy girl" stat status. I dream about wearing that type of look. Its why I'm on Jenny Craig. Ha. But since, I'm not baring it all, will you do it for me? I'm for serious about this. Pretty please with a cherry on top. Tweet us a pic to @Shop_CheapChic of you in your hottest Italianista two-piece look. And if you're looking for one, the online global destination for the coolest clothes on the block is Los Angeles-based Nasty Gal. My new favorite fashion destination.

East Coast, West Coast, Worldwide

Just flew back from Los Angeles. My other home. I got to hike every morning, taking in the early morning dew and fresh scent of the Eucalyptus trees of Runyon and Fryman Canyon. Got to meet a friend's new baby and share In N' Out Burger over wine and terrific conversation. I did a ton of Cheap Chic Shopping on Melrose, and rounded out the week with a terrific Cheap Chic Shopping segment on Good Day LA. Jillian is focused and fab. A savvy newscaster is under those gorgeous boobs.  And Debbie Matenopolous is smart, engaging, super fun and incredibly nice. My models, who are all friends, clients, Cheap Chic bloggers, and budget Stylists, were amazing and their outfits really represented what I stand for and share with you.

The House That Lady Bits Built

Have you peeped my full page advertorial in this month's Glamour Magazine? While not Style Producing The Chew and Cheap Chic Shopping, I list my Summer must-haves for primo Summer Livin'. It also happens to be an advertorial piece for a new feminine product on the market called Softcup. For that time of the month, Softcup will have you smooth sailing. Which is always a Summer must-have. And this is not the first feminine product, I have endorsed. A few years back, I did a media tour for YAZ birth control and the many ways you can pair it's discreet Tiffany blue pack with your purse.

I like to call my NYC apartment, the house that lady bits built. And I ain't too proud to share the health wealth with my sister's. So, if you're looking for a Style eye's view of a tampon, pill, feminine wash, sexy toy, or pharmaceutical pill, I'm your gal for all the girly trendy tips.
