Plus, three tips from readers:

Margot alerted us to the fact that Walmart just bought ModCloth. Say what?!

Chacha reminds us that Modern by Dwell Magazine is one of the best affordable sources for midcentury mod decor: "Great deals, well made."

Selena Gomez's Rose Print Bomber Jacket Look for Less

Selena Gomez slays in a red rose bomber jacket and ankle strap heels.
Selena Gomez looked ravishing in a red rose print bomber jacket while grabbing froyo at Menchies in Los Angeles.

She let the jacket take center stage and used a white ribbed tank and slim fit high-waist crop jeans as the foundation for her look.

If you don't have a bomber jacket for spring yet, I found a lovely option under $40 - also love this one and this one, both also under $40 and look great in real life.

Sexy ankle strap heel sandals finish the look. These have definitely become a closet essential. I think I've featured this pair under $30 at least a half dozen times! There's also this pair that comes in 12 colors for less than $100.

Throwback Thursday: Louise Roe's Trench Vest and White Jeans Look for Less

Louise Roe wears a white shirt and white jeans topped with a military style trench vest and pointy toe flats.
Here's someone we don't feature nearly enough: Louise Roe! I came across this look of hers from 2014 and thought it's just as relevant today.

Starting with an all-white canvas of a white button down shirt and white distressed jeans, the style trendsetter added an olive military style trench vest, pointy toe flats and structured top handle bag to create her look.

I think this outfit is so right for spring, and couldn't believe that the Gap vest I found to recreate it is under $40 and still in stock in all sizes! You could layer this piece so many ways.

Also, I snuck in a bracelet from the Sugarfix by Baublebar jewelry collection that's now BOGO at Check out all their tassel earrings, too, so gorgeous and perfectly priced! If you buy one spring accessory, make it a pair of tassel earrings.
