    1. A cross-body bag with the daintiest little bumblebee on it, so cute, it could pass as a designer bag.,

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful purse when you don't want to carry too much stuff or if you are a mom that still needs room for her personal belongings and not stashing your things into the diaper bag. The little bag itself feels really soft and looks pretty but classy. It has plenty of space in the main compartment and the other two are good for keeping your hand cream, lip balm, sunscreen, glasses, cards holder etc. All I can say is you won't regret buying this one." —Gaby&Ricardo

    2. A set of beaded headbands to add some sparkle to your hair accessory lineup.

    Promising review: "These are so beautiful!, the quality of the headbands are amazing and the beads are high quality too. I definitely recommend them, they are really well made and the beads are well put on, they are not hot glued on. They are super comfortable too. No complaints." —Diana

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This is a lovely dress that feels a lot more expensive than it looks. I bought it for a wedding and it was the perfect fall dress. Very soft material, well made and doesn’t wrinkle! I’m on the shorter side, and the length is a little more than a tea length dress, but not a maxi. Also the sleeves can be pushed up and will stay in place (great for shorter gals)! The fit is as expected, and I was pleased that it was true to size! Highly recommend this dress!" —Ann Kathryn Polka

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14–22 and nine colors).

    Promising review: "In love with this trendy gold layering necklace! I feel like it is perfectly priced and such a fun accent to any outfit. Feels to be very good quality and they are very easy to clasp on and off. Also, love that they are very adjustable and can make them shorter or longer if wanted." —Kelly Shamon

    Get them from Amazon for $8.55+.

    8. A lantern sleeve ruffle hem dress you can add to your closet that looks incredibly high-end but was honestly a steal. ('ll be our little fashion secret.),

    Promising review: "I ADORE this dress! It is the perfect combination of feminine and dressy. The crochet detail is fairly open in the cleavage area so be prepared to add a white or skin tone slip underneath for more coverage." —Meg Engleman

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in sizes 0-12 and in five colors).

    9. A pair of round circle sunglasses to achieve the Ray-Bans look without the Ray-Bans price tag.


    Promising review: "For the money you can’t beat em! These look amazing on my face like a $300 pair of sunglasses. I have tried multiple pairs and this brand looks and feels comparable to a pair of Ray-Bans and Pradas, I have a smaller face and to me this pair fits the best, perfect for my nose and brow line. I couldn’t be happier, just wish there were 6 stars so everyone would know how amazing they are. If you are questioning whether or not they will look as good on you as they do in the photos, yes...yes they do." —Christina

    Get them from Amazon for $14.83 (available in seven colors).

    10. A balloon sleeve sweater that's classic and effortless when styled with cozy leggings or leather bottoms.


    Promising review: "This sweater is so, so, so soft and that soft material is both on the outside and inside. There are some sweaters where only the outside is soft, but this whole thing is like a warm blanket. I got a lot of compliments on the fit of it and on how soft it is. Totally recommend!! It is definitely true to size, I wear between a small and medium and I got a medium. It is like that nice baggy/slightly oversized look!" —Katherina Park

    Get it from Amazon for $31.77+ (available in sizes XXS–L).

    11. A pair of Celine-esque sunglasses to help channel Kris Jenner in all her fashionable glory. A few of my friends and I own these and they're FAB.


    Promising review: "I couldn’t bring myself to buy expensive designer sunglasses because I’m known for losing/breaking them, lol. I bought these not expecting much, but I ended up loving them. They’re such good quality for the price and look expensive. They’re oversized but that’s how I like my sunglasses. I’m ordering them in all of the other colors!" —YMS

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 17 colors/styles).

    12. A checkered keychain pouch for keeping your most important cards with you at all times. There are days you just don't want to carry a bag, so all you'll need to remember are your keys AND bam, your wallet will be attached too!

    Promising review: "These sunglasses have been my summer staple ever since receiving them. They are the cutest addition to an outfit and I get more compliments on them then I do high end sunglasses. I was blown away when I received them of the good packaging and their quality. They are so durable, the shades are very well tinted and shield great against sun, and you would never guess they were as inexpensive as they are. They make me feel young and fun and I love them. Definitely recommend for you or as a gift." —Jill Koch

    15. A gothic year ring you can wear to commemorate a year that's meaningful to you, whether it was your birth year, the year you got engaged, or to honor your Grandma.


    This ring is adjustable!

    Promising review: "OMG! It's sooo cute!! It's aesthetically pleasing and is the perfect size in regards to the overall year width ratio to hand/finger. It's adjustable, as in it expands, but my fingers are so small (I wear size 6 rings) that this fits without needing any adjustments, so much so that it's loose-fitting and it might slide off if my finger gets slippery. However, it stays put any other time! Not too shiny, only glows in the right lighting. It stays legible/readable with light shining on it or not. I LOVE this. It's officially my new favorite ring! It doesn't look tacky or cheap or toy-ish at all. This is simply the cutest expression I could wear on my hands." —Jaguar Jessie Jones

    Promising review: "I needed a purse to match every outfit, kind of as my go-to bag. This is literally perfect! You’ll love it. It’s so sturdy and everyone tells me it looks like a Chanel bag dupe. For the price, it’s worth it. I highly recommend this purchase." —Adrianna Douglas

    Get it from Amazon for $55.26+ (available in three styles).

    17. A simplistic ring — AKA your new BFF ring for you and your bestie that'll be an elevated step up from those sad Claire's half heart necklaces you exchanged with each other in the seventh grade... OR just gift one to yourself because nothing is more important than self-love. ❤️

It feels a like a tiara on my head! I have had so many compliments and it's so comfortable. Since my hair is a dark brown/black color, it pops and looks even better! I am going to have to definitely purchase this item again because it's honestly that amazing! The bling is just perfect and it shines so beautifully in the sun! This headband will not disappoint!!!!!" —KP

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 10 styles).

    22. An initial pendant necklace you've probs seen on expensive sites like Anthropologie and Nordstrom but just can't justify the price tag. This one is AMAZING (I've had mine for over a year and it's still in impeccable condition)!

    B initial necklace

    My friend Lindsey had this necklace and sent me the link to it on Amazon (since I had been looking at some super expensive ones online) and decided to snag this one since it was a fraction of the cost. I have had this for over a year and it has not tarnished one bit. I've worn it in the shower, while sweating, and it's still perfect. I love the thicker chain, it adds some dimension when styled amongst my other jewelry, and it's just all around a fab jewelry piece to have in my collection.

    Promising review: "Very nice necklace and hypoallergenic. No sign of tarnishing this far." —Amazon reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97 (available in five lengths).

    23. A graphic crewneck that looks like a high-end streetwear dupe for a fraction of the price. Cozy vibes just got a whole lot trendier., Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    I recently ordered this on Amazon because I love a good graphic tee/crew and this one looks effortlessly cool paired with jeans and a shacket. I love that the inside isn't fleece, it's actually more of a terry cloth material which is great for layering and will still keep you warm without overheating like fleece can sometimes do.

    Promising review: "I cannot believe this sweatshirt was only $32. Even for an ‘inspired’ piece. I would pay $50–$90 for a sweatshirt of this quality. The printing on the sweatshirt is a matte finish and is thicker. The writing on the front is raised a little and it adds a good texture. It’s a thicker heavier sweatshirt but not a fuzzy one which I think is good because you can wear it without overheating." —T

    Get it from Amazon for $38.66+ (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors/styles).

    24. A snakeskin belt because you deserve to have your pants fit comfortably without the fear of them falling down at any given moment. Also, a lil' animal print never hurt an outfit.

    Get it from Forever21 for $3.99 (originally $7.99; available in sizes XS/S, S/M, M/L).
