I have become v obsessed with drugstore makeup. Like, scary obsessed. It’s just too easy to stack coupons, stake out sales at every CVS on my route home, y’know the whole enchilada and then some. And surprisingly, one of my favorite brands these days is Wet N’ Wild. The price point is so low and the quality is really high, I swear. This is not the Wet N Wild blue eyeshadow with chunky gold glitter of your youth. So anyway, I have to tell you about the above limited-edition palettes, Melrose at Night and Smoke & Melrose. I picked up the latter last week and I’m obsessed! I don’t have the famous/infamous Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (in a similar vein, I don’t have $54 to spend on eyeshadow either). But you can create a lot of the same looks with these little suckaz, which clock in at about $3.99 each. Check all your drugstores and see if you can find them! They will be in a special little display that looks like this.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to splurge on a new pair of pants for fall: Madewell is teaming up with Blue Jean Go Green to collect your old pairs of jeans and give you $20 off a new full-price pair in return. This promotion runs through October 6th. I’ve got my eye on the skinny skinny jeans in the “waterfall” wash (shown above, $128). I also like the high riser skinny skinny jeans in “lunar.”

Professional nobody Olivia “Who?” Palermo recently sported double denim and the Internet went wild over it. I’m tempted to dismiss this because I don’t like her, but even I have to admit her outfit’s cute. Dupe it with your favorite light-wash chambray top tucked into this Rachel Roy denim pencil skirt ($44.99 plus 20% off with code FIVE). If it were me, I would choose this chambray henley shell from LOFT ($34.99 with an additional 40% off) to keep the look a bit more modern.

The well-reviewed Pilcro legging jean is marked down to $59.95 (from $118) at Anthropologie, in 4 different washes that range from true blue to the above black. Not a ton of sizes left but worth picking through. I love my Pilcro roll-up denim shorts so I can vouch, this is v nice denim!

LOFT’s camo sweater ($55 with an additional 40% off) is a cute dupe if you missed out on last spring’s sold-out J. Crew version. Be advised though that it’s “dusted with a subtle shimmer” which I don’t see in the photo. Here’s what I do see in the photo: somebody who is about to play paintball. Don’t mix your camos, fool!

I’ve been lusting over these reversible faux leather tote bags since I spotted them at Urban Outfitters last month, and at only $59 they really are quite a steal. I love the cognac/emerald pictured above. I think they look much more spendy than they are!

I am deeeeeply interested in Madewell’s new firelight marled pullover. How perfect is that, seriously. It’s $98 and comes in flax and burgundy. My plan of action is to get me bum into a Madewell store and try it on, because that side slit is a bit risky for an online order, then wait for a promo code and pounce. I think the flax will be more wearable for me. WINTER IS [kinda] COMING.

I’ve been spotting this trend around and loving it, but I’m not sure what to call it. A shoe…with an asymmetrical strap? Let’s go with that. On the left is Hailee Steinfeld wearing Louboutins (at 17, god bless us each and every one) but you can invoke this red carpy magic on the cheap with the STEVEN by Steve Madden "Curvy" flat. The B&W at above right is $63. It also comes in a muted gold, and black leather. Blessed be.
