Spring Style: Lilliana x Oasis

Written By: Lilliana Vazquez

There’s nothing I love more than discovering new brands. I discovered Oasis last year and have a been a loyal fan ever since. Their blend of contemporary styles and functional basics has made them a go-to online destination for me. And while they don’t have any stores in the US just yet, they’re a pretty big deal across the pond with more than 300 stores in the UK…with those kinds of numbers you know they must be doing something – or in their case – many things right. Accessible prices, speedy shipping and trend-right picks that you won’t find anywhere else.

Speaking of picks, I’ve done all the hard work for you and hand-selected my twelve favorite Oasis items in my first edit for their website…

Budget Babe: Natural Beach Waves

Written By: Robin Reetz

With festival season beginning and the promise of summer-worthy warm temps on their way, we’re thinking ahead to our warm weather beauty routines. The first thing on our wishlist? Beach waves.

If you’re lucky enough to score waves naturally, then we really envy you. For the rest of us, there’s a little hope thanks to Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Featuring both dead sea salt and sea kelp, this product promises natural waves. Simply spray, let your hair dry or aid the waves with the help of a diffuser, and let the magic begin.

And we almost forgot the best part: NYM’s Beach Babe spray is only $5.99, so you can use it liberally all summer long. Get ready!

Sometimes the best way to master spring style is with separates. With that in mind, at Cheap Chica’s we’re lusting over the Floral Skort at ASOS.Daily Deal: River Island Floral Skort

Imagine this adorable floral River Island skort with a crop top or even a plain white tee, a bucket bag, and some sweet sandals. Warm-weather style doesn’t get any easier…or cuter! We’re obsessed.

Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

Written By: Robin Reetz

Bucket bags are everywhere this spring and we couldn’t be more into this trend. Big enough to hold your necessities but smaller than a shoulder bag, tote, or hobo, a bucket bag is really the perfect size for spring.Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

We love this Cross-Body Bucket Bag ($26.99) at Charlotte Russe, Old Navy’s Faux-Leather Bucket Bag ($32.99), ZARA’s Drawstring Bucket Bag ($35.99), and this luxe-looking David Jones Drawstring Bucket Bag ($42.95) from Lori’s Shoes.

So what do you say – will you go bucket for spring, or is there another style you’re loving instead?

The start of April and the sighting of a few warm and sunny days have us craving new spring wardrobes. Whether it’s spring dresses, beach-ready bikinis, or weekend-worthy jean shorts, we’re ready to re-stock our wardrobes with some new warm-weather purchases.

Luckily, Mikkat Market has our back. New products have just been added to an already huge sale, with some pieces now up to 80% off.

This Eyelet Pencil Skirt (now 40% off at $28.20) is what spring days were made for. Speaking of eyelet, this gorgeous Eyelet Cut Out Waist Dress is now 50% off at only $30.50. We’ve also got our eye on these Faux Leather Running Shorts which perfectly master this season’s sporty trend at the super affordable price of $24.50.

But there’s plenty more where that came from – Mikkat also has tons of jewelry and accessories on sale, all at prices that are unlikely to go much lower. See you there?

Work the Web: Flight 001

Written By: Robin Reetz

Here at Cheap Chica’s HQ, we swear by pouches. Whether it’s for day-to-day organization in our purses or for traveling, we can never have too many pouches, clutches, or zip-up bags.Flight 001: Travel Pouches

When we came across these darling toiletry bags from Flight001, we fell hard.

Aside from the fact that they’re available in a variety of colors and featuring sassy slogans like “Let’s Get Lost” and “I Survived the TSA”, they’re also completely practical and work just as well thrown in your handbag as they would for keeping organization on a long-haul flight.

Considering that these practical pouches are only $18, we might just have to stock up on a few. Which is your fave?
