Guest Blogger Feature - '5 under $50 for Spring' by Couture Carrie

Since early 2008, ultra-fabulous fashion blogger, Couture Carrie has been thrilling us with her daily trend reports and abundant selections of inspirational photos from the runways as well as online retail stores. Now, here to help us get ready for Spring, CC has listed below her top five fashion picks under $50 for the season.



Thanks to Danz for being a blogging inspiration and inviting CC as the first Guest Star in this series of posts!

For Spring, darlings, CC suggests whimsy, color, retro glamour, and an adventurous spirit. Here are CC's five picks for fab fashions under $50:



1.


American Apparel Unisex Oversized See Thru T Shirt
Price: US$32.00


CC loves this versatile piece as a belted tunic, a swingy dress (just layer it over an AA tube dress, and be sure to roll up the sleeves to show off those shoulders), or as a chic beach cover-up. Get it in basic black or experiment with some of the 80s-throwback brights that designers are championing for Spring!


2.


Victoria's Secret Shadow Dot Bikini
Price: US$37.00


CC absolutely adores VS bikinis, and the price is right on this one; not to mention that polka dots are the ultimate in retro chic for Spring. Just witness all the fab dotted swimsuits at Michael Kors!


3.


Alexander McQueen for Target Tiger Print Shift Dress
Price: US$44.99


The pieces in McQueen's collection for Target are sure to be collector's items, and CC loves this one for its unique design - remember that patterned dresses are hot for Spring - and its flirty length. Accessorize with last year's gladiators or #5 below!


4.

Delia's Morgan Low-Rise Skinny Jean
Price: US$49.50


CC loves the acidwash and shredded denim trends, but how about something a little cheerier for the warmer weather? Coral and lemon yellow are big this season, and these skinnies are just so fun!

5.

Forever 21 Fringe Open Toe Boots
Price: US$34.80


Leave it to Forever 21 to knock off the season's hottest trends - the open toed bootie and the fringed sandal. This hybrid is the perfect transitional pair to take you from late winter through Spring. Show off those mile long legs by donning these booties with a micro mini or some of Spring's fabulous Alexander Wang-inspired rolled shorts!



Be sure to tune in to Couture Carrie beginning on Monday for CC's ABCs of Spring.

Fabulous choice to highlight. I adore CC's work, and just seeing the new blog posts with the creme de la creme of items makes my heart flutter. Each and every time. I adore all...just not sure how 'quality' those Wang-knockoffs will be...I'd probably steer clear.

That AA tunic and VS bikini though...whoa :)
