Getting Lucky

cover_lucky_190

I just got my July issue of Lucky magazine and it is fabulous. Every item in the issue is UNDER $100. Tops, bags, makeup, you name it. Many items are much cheaper, and there was a page of beauty items under $5.

My only complaint? I wish every issue was like this. It's so frustrating to read an article about "frugal finds" or what have you, only to see a $500 dress mixed with plastic jewelry from Forever21. "Mix high and low" doesn't really work when the actual CLOTHING is high and the unnecessary junk is low.  Some magazines (Lucky, Glamour, for example) are better at budget-conscious features than others. But for a girl with an average income, many items that they feature are still woefully unattainable.

This Ann Taylor Loft dress is only $69!

So cheers to Lucky for breaking the $100 barrier! Hope to see a regular feature like this!
