Good Day Columbus!

Good Day Columbus was definitely a good morning! Assisting as Columbus’ Lead Cheap Chic Stylist to the talented Fashion Stylist/ Shopping Expert Jess Zaino, was literally a whirlwind of fun and full of cheap, chic fashion finds. The most amazing of finds was the “pharmacy look” that Jess purchased from a Walgreens and CVS on Rt. 71, not only blew my mind but everyone’s in the studio!

With the perfect white tank and the most gorgeous floral printed skirt…it just screamed chic! Next time your running in for some mascara, check out the clothing! The other two looks were just as amazing.

The Miss Tina by Tina Knowles for Walmart (yes, as in Beyonce’s Mom) collection is to die. The leopard printed top (which is something I HAVE to buy), to the dark washed denim, was sleek, sexy, and was polished off sweetly with a black ballet flat, also from Walmart.

The grand finale though was the infamous summer dress that you love so much you want to wear year round! With a cobalt blue tight, black blazer that everyone needs because of its versatility, and an ankle boot all from Target, it was spot on for the fashionable and trendy girl. Throw on some affordable jewelry, “more is more,” as Jess says, and you are a cheap, chic girl.

Cheap Chic Shopping Makes It Mo’ Better

This morning I had the pleasure of partaking in a Cheap Chic Shopping segment for Better TV. I had met host, Audra Lowe previously at a party, and both she and I couldn’t get enough of sharing steals and deals that we’ve found over the years, so reconnecting with her on set was a blast!

I featured three Cheap Chic Shopping looks modeled by “actual clients, “real girls” if you will, as Cheap Chic Shopping is for everyone, not just the professional models you normally see on-air. One of the models, may even be a bridesmaid of mine… who am I kidding? Meg, a hairstylist at Salon V in the  East Village, was bold and brave enough to rock the pharmacy chic look, which YES! came from the pharmacy. Including the $1 shoes, and polka-dot beer cooler I repurposed as a clutch for $2.50.

I had originally purchased Yuri’s shirt at H&M for $20 but on the way to the fitting, I found a similar dark denim button-down from a street vendor for $3!!? Of course, I negotiated that down to $2 matched with the $15 Old Navy dark denim, which topped the outfit out at $17!?

Rounding out the group of Cheap Chic cuties was Danielle. She loved her yellow, floral Summer dress so I made sure to refresh it for Fall with a fantastically rock glam leather-like jacket for $19 and tights I scored for $3 in the bargain bin. Her awesome booties, complete in trendy taupe for Fall with side fringe was $14 at my secret Soho spot. Come shopping on tour with me to find out more about that.

As for the segment, it airs next Wednesday, August 15. Click here to locate time and listings.

Taxi TV Goes Cheap Chic Shopping!

Hola Cheap Chicers! Did you miss me??

I have been working some long days and sneaking in some fun! A little mix of both came to me in an opportunity to be taped while Cheap Chic Shopping for ABC.

Last week, we met at our favorite Soho haunt and found amazing outfits for our three ladies! Of course, we fished through the sales racks to find a beautiful maxi dress for Jeny and pulled the outfit together with a cheap jean jacket and perfect accessories. We were excited to find a classic outfit for Tracy in a Soho boutique. The awesome classic white denim and chambray shirt were made trendy and exciting with pops of color in the purse and belt. Lastly, we taught the women how to make any outfit instantly chic with a trip to street vendors with cool sunglasses, hats and scarves. With the addition of a colorful printed scarf and cheap aviators, our clients took their tshirts to a completely new look with $10.

The girls were so very excited and the shooting crew were impressed. Jess and I had so much fun, as usual, picking out the cheapest finds and making them chic. Check us out on Taxi TV!
