Deal du Jour: Hot Pink Denim

These hot pink denim jeans from Forever 21 have got me singing...

"Some say it's mystic
It's electric
Boogie woogie, woogie
You can't resist it
It's electric
Boogie woogie, woogie
You can't do without it
It's electric
Boogie woogie, woogie
Jiggle-a-mesa-cara she's a pumpin' like a matic
She's movin' like electric
She sure got the boogie..."

Cheap Thrills for Valentine's Day

Nothing says "Be my Valentine" quite like sexy lingerie. Then again, nothing says "turn off" quite like a steep price tag. Lucky for us, red-hot lingerie doesn't have to cost a bundle. And why should it? We make the case for cheap thrills:

  • Sexy is a state of mind, not a dollar sign.

  • Gents don't care one way or the other (but if they want to buy us fine lingerie as a gift, that's perfectly acceptable - and encouraged.)

  • Rough play in the boudoir warrants worry-free prices at the checkout counter.

  • Passion is stifled by overpriced, overly precious underthings.

  • All your favorite budget fashion retailers carry chic intimate apparel at dirt-cheap prices. Try H&M, Forever 21, Rampage, Marshall's, T.J. Maxx and Target.
