So one of my guilty pleasures are my subscriptions to People and People StyleWatch.  I don’t pay the newsstand price for the magazine, I buy it via magazines where I get it very deeply discounted.  One of the good things about StyleWatch is the special deals and coupon codes for readers in each issue of the magazine.  Its a great way to get some quality items using the offers that People is able to negotiate with vendors.  This week, there are 21 deals featured including the above pictured Casablanca dress from Shabby Apple.  This dress channels old 1950s Christian Dior  style with the bow tie, and the high wrap shoulders.  It retails for $86.00, but with the style code, (stylewatch20off)  you get it for $69.00.  Of course, I had to test drive this, and I ordered it for myself.  I’ll let you know if its as good as it looks when I receive it.

This week there are 21 special deals offered via People StyleWatch.  Deals are from LA’s,  SINE NY, AU 79 Jewels, and one of my favorite Project Runway designers, Kara Janx.  Remember Kara’s Kimono Dress and Michael Kor’s complimenting her on it? Deals range from clothing to accessories, to jewelry to bags.  Definitely worth a look, since there are some quality items with savings as much as 30%  off  of retail offered. Some of the accessories might work for prom or as Mother’s Day gifts.  There are savings on one of my favorites,  1928 Jewelry.  Check out this beautiful flowered cuff from 1928 Jewelry.

The PeopleStyleWatch deal is a discount of  25% off site-wide at by entering “People25” at checkout,  expiration date is : April 12. 2010.  One thing I have noticed is, the deals seem to go quick, so if you like it, and the price is right for you, order.  I tried to order something last week, and pouf, it was gone, I was too late!  Check it out and let me know what you think? Will you shop for others like Mom, or for yourself?  That is the eternal question.

If you got People magazine this week (April 5th), did you see that two celebrities were spotted wearing dresses from H&M on the red carpet? Kate Mara looked amazing in the $39.00 Red Rosettee Dress from new H&M Garden Collection.  Jessica Lowndes wore a black sweetheart neck black H&M dress for $49.99.   I love that celebs are seen wearing these inexpensive looks and that they look, luxurious.   Here’s to more of the chic n’cheap!
