Chic on the cheap

by Amanda Bedgood

Steals and deals hot as the temps this summer

I am a bargain hunter. I come by it honestly. My family, we are a deal hunting lot. I often meet similar ladies and know this when you pay a compliment and get this sort of response: "You won't believe where I found it! And for only $40!" Kindred spirits.

And so in this spirit I'm bringing you some of the very best deals and steals this week about town.

Over at Sky Blue the ladies are putting a great selection of footwear half off. That's right - 50 percent off. From sandals to simple flats and super funky crocheted little slippers from Painted Bird you can't find anywhere else, there's a little something for everyone.

For those looking for some shorts with a classier edge, we're loving the pair at 7 Chics. They can go from summer to fall with a simple flat and at $25 certainly worth it.

The caramel dress over at Herringstone's is under $20 and trending big time with those studs on the back. The dress is part of a sale on their sale items that includes a few transitional pieces you could wear on a cool night at the beach and into the fall and a few that are summer worthy as well.

And if you're looking for a fresh deal every single day, the ladies at Vanessa V. won't disappoint. Their Deal of the Day promised every day this summer is kind of the hottest thing we've seen lately (to date they've given us $5 hats, $3 sunglasses and flirty little dresses for less than $10). Today it's a super cute dress (or tunic depending on your height) we featured a couple weeks ago that's a lovely white with cool ocean-inspired print. - $9. This IND Styler may love fashion, but I admit I love a good deal even more.
