If you’re anything like me, you’re keeping your wallet close to you and your pennies pinched. The latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine has found women like you and I seven “ridiculously” good deals and I have to share them. It’d be mean not to!

1. Forever21.com – patent bag – $26.80 (I think the only bag I’ve ever paid that much for was the bag I use daily, a wardrobe staple. Not something red and patent leather!)

2. VSPink.com – printed sundresses – $54.50 (My favorite dress I paid about that much for at the Gap. I’ve worn it at least fifty times and it’s classic and gorgeous and worth it. This dress might be a little to “stylish” for wearing it fifty times, but if you’ve got a penchant for florals, go for it!)

3. OldNavy.com – floral shirts – $24.50 (I love the bright colors … but they really really really remind me of my Grams and some of her old shirts. I don’t know that I could do it.)

4. kiraplastinina.com – hot pink skirt – $39 (Yeah, um, no thanks. I’m so not cool enough for a hot skirt! Also, even with a year of Russian under my belt I couldn’t find this skirt on their website.)

5. walmart.comcolorful jeans from L.e.i. – $20 (No. Please don’t. Please? Pretty please? I’m sharing these things because people like them, obviously, but SERIOUSLY? No one should be wearing yellow denim.)

6. kmart.com – striped blouses – $16.99 (I LOVE this shirt. I want to go to KMart and find this shirt today – it’s that cute, and THAT cheap!)

7. payless.com – gladiator sandals – $38 (1. Gladiator sandals? Really? 2) $38 at Payless? Not quite my idea of cheap.)

Tips for women with waists

Short-waisted women:
Do you frequently tuck your shirts into your pants? Get pants with lower rises then to lower your waistline.
Wear a bra. Even better? Wear a supportive bra. Keeping your breasts where they should be emphasizes your waist.
Buying longer tops draws your waistline lower.
When wearing a belt, opt for a narrow one, push it below the natural waist just a bit and match it to your shirt color – all tips to elongate your torso.

Long-waisted women:
Wear V-neck tops
Try jackets with curved hems rather than straight ones, they’ll cut you off less.
Narrow skirts with tapered sides will make your legs look longer, so will raised waistlines with a belt that matches your pants color.
Heels! Making your legs look longer with shoes is easy!

BTW – This has everything to do with health. Women feel their best when they look their best!
