    Promising review: "La Blanca makes the best suits. This is my third La Blanca. I tend to size up in swimsuits because I prefer a less binding fit but it stills hugs me right so its not baggy or anything. I saw this on sale and snagged the pink color right up. La Blanca for life!" —James ED

    Price: $59.40 (originally $99, available in sizes 12—16)

    2. A leather clutch perfect for parties or dressing up any outfit. Is it laundry day and you only have sweats and a tee? Throw this on and next thing you know, page six is calling you a trendsetter.


    Promising review: "Love this beautiful leather clutch! It's the perfect size for an evening out! It looks so feminine! You can't go wrong with either color. I definitely recommend this one!" —Dani1025

    Price: $54.90 (originally $99)

    3. A spatula that won't melt, chip, or snap in like, 2.5 business days. Sure you can get one from the dollar store, but the quality will never be the same. It's made from stainless steel and almost impossible to break, no matter how hard you bend it.

    Promising review: "I love all of their products. This spatula is very well made and the silicone is super sturdy. This spatula is of excellent quality." —AllClad_Cust

    Price: $19.99 (originally $25)

    4. A pair of blue light blocking glasses to make you look like a fashion model?! Sign me up! These classy frames are super comfortable and anti-reflective.


    Promising review: "I wear these almost every day. They help so much with the digital eye strain and I've been getting compliments on how good they look especially on Zoom calls of course." —lawrence

    Price: $33 (originally $55)

    5. A corseted T-shirt that is extremely versatile. You can wear it to work, on a date, or just lounging around your house. It truly is the perfect tee.

    Model wearing white blouse

    Promising review: "I had high hopes for this top and it does not disappoint! The fabric is so comfortable like a T-shirt combined with the feminine details of a blouse. It's my favorite by far! You can dress this up or down; it is simply perfect. I am going back to order the other colors before they sell out!" —John D

    Price: $35.40 (originally 59, available in sizes 5(2xl) — 7(4x1).

    6. A wireless charging pad so you can feel like you've been transported to 2112 while the rest us are contemplating whether or not we should replace our frayed cords. Ahh, the luxury of never having to hold my worn-out wire at a super awkward angle just to get my phone to a 30% charge.


    Promising review: "I am in love with the quality of Native Union’s products. This charger combines stellar performance with a fun design from Maison Kitsuné. Native Union makes the longest lasting, highest quality chargers." —Lconell

    Price: $41.99 (originally 69.99)

    7. A snakeskin mesh shirt to help you nail a fabulous rocker chic look whether you're heading to a party or the grocery store. The sidewalk will always be your runway when you have this piece on.

    Model in a sheer snakeskin snake

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how great this top is. Been looking for something like this to layer for a long time. The fabric is very soft and feels good. It’s very sheer, I got it in black. This will be a staple in my closet. I’ve seen tops like this for hundreds of dollars by top designers, this was $24 and worth every penny! Highly recommend it. True to size." —mdetroiter

    Price: $13.05 (originally $29, available in S and two colors)

    8. A tube of MAC Lustre Lipstick that *I* would never be caught without. This is the lipstick version of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. PSA to all my friends: If I run out and I see yours on the counter, it's mine now!


    Promising review: "A friend of mine shared the promo pic for the SIN lipstick by MAC on Facebook and the color caught me instantly! I fell in love immediately and when my package arrived it did not disappoint. I am deep brown skinned woman and this color is absolutely beautiful against my hue. I have struggled finding good lipsticks that compliment my skin tone, this one nailed it! I love." —SCWBlessed

    Price: $11.40 (originally $19)

    9. A cast iron braiser with glass lid so that you can experience that fall-off-the-bone tender meal at home instead of paying an arm and a leg for it at an incredibly expensive restaurant

    Pan on white background

    This product is heat-safe up to 450º F, BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and made of silicone and stainless steel.

    Promising review: "This pan is so much more than a braiser. It has quickly become my every day pan. I use it to saute, fry, roast, and it is also great for making pancakes in the morning. The dark interior is great for browning, and searing and is resistant to discoloration and staining. The glass lid makes it easy to monitor foods while keeping all the juices inside. Looks great on the table, and keeps foods at just the right temperature." —Saralove4Repoated

    Price: $169.99 (originally $259.99, available in four colors)

    10. A dress that will make you look like you're about to step on stage with Beyonce. This chic dress looks high end but is somehow under 60 bucks?! BRB, adding to cart!

    Model wearing pink dress

    Promising review: "I love a dress I can wear to work or wear out, that I still want to wear when I get home. This fabric is so soft and so comfortable I’ve even slept in this dress (without the belt, of course). Stands up to multiple washings and still looks amazing!" —Musingsofafox

    Price: $53.40 (originally $89, available in sizes 1X — 3X snd two colors)

    11. An expandable nylon tote so that you never have to experience the horror that is bag check again. You can truly fit your whole life in this comfy bag.


    Promising review: "I am a huge fan of Longchamp and this bag is the newest addition to my collection. This weekend bag is one of the best I've ever owned. Sturdy and lightweight, it easily holds more than a weekend's worth of clothes/shoes without being expanded. When expanded, can hold so much more! the ability to fold and store is great and also allows you to bring an extra bag on vacation with you without taking up room. The picture does not do this bag justice. I bought the plum color and it is so much richer in person. A great update to your typical weekend or carry-on bag." —ald318

    Price: $212 (originally $265.00, available in two colors)

    12. Strap sandals with a cloud-like microfiber cushion and comfy heel. These will make sure your feet never touch the city ground. Plus, it's perfect if you're clumsy like me because the bottom provides better grip and traction than other shoes.

    Sandals on white background

    Promising review: "These are the cutest and most comfortable sandals. I wanted black sandals for the summer and comfort is a MUST for me. They really go with a lot of outfits and I feel like they're a great everyday sandal. I wear a 7.5 and the size is perfect." —RMshoegirl

    Price: $89.90 (originally 129.95, available in sizes 5—11 and three colors)

    13. Marquise earrings shaped just like diamonds but function as hoops. Even if you don't have a dime to your name, you'll feel like a million bucks with these on.


    Promising review: "I was on the hunt for a gift for a young friend's 30th birthday. It's not an easy task since she is quite fashion savvy and only wears the best. This makes it hard to find something memorable without breaking the bank. After a long search, I came upon these earrings. I had them gift wrapped and sent to her. She has sent me numerous photos of her wearing them. They are elegant. Now, my daughters want them for Christmas. One of their friends saw them and intends to give them as bridesmaids gifts. I'm putting them on Santa's list for me too! They've passed my friend's quality control test, and that is a tough task!" —Lizann88

    Price: $34.80 (originally $58, available in two colors)

    14. A Casper dog bed — Am I a little salty that there are dog beds fancier than my own? Perhaps. Will I still shell out money to get my fur baby this exact one? Definitely!

    Casper pillow

    Promising review: "My bro loves his Casper dog bed! This dog bed is worth the price if you ask me. Gizmoe is 13 years old, so he needed the luxury of a good dog bed. I'm pleased with my purchase. I like that I could modify the sides, so it wasn't so tall for my dog to get into, and the fact the cover is washable is a plus. Also, I read online if the cover is damaged, you can contact Casper to get a replacement!" —hopelizromantic

    Price: $126.65 (originally $149)

    15. Ear cuff that fits like a glove and can be placed anywhere on your ear. And best of all? Even jewelry enthusiasts without piercings can rock this snug no-hole-necessary piece.


    Promising review: "I bought an assortment of ear cuffs to 'freshen' up my winter look (hair up, lots of turtlenecks can get a little boring). This is my favorite. I like the shininess and heft, and it is surprisingly comfortable. I have forgotten to take it off before yoga on a couple of occasions and it still seems to keep its shine. We'll see how it wears, but I'm tempted to order a second as a 'back-up.' —JohnnysMom

    Price: $20.40 (originally $34)

    16. A Badgley Mischka Long Sleeve Trapeze Dress — stepping out in this beautiful floral chiffon dress might be the worst decision you could make, because your friends will think you're the neighborhood Ana Wintour.

    Model in blue dress

    Promising review: "I recently bought this dress for my sister-in-laws October wedding. The color is exactly what I was looking and loved the long sleeves! The fit was perfect and flowy! So many people told me they loved my dress!" —LKey

    Price: $119.40 (originally $199, available in sizes 0—12)

    17. A kid's denim jacket so that your tiny tot can be just as fashion-forward as you. It's 100% cotton and 200% cute.

    Kid's denim jacket

    Promising review: "This jacket is so cute and looks absolutely adorable on my little girl. It is true to size and made with great quality! It's very comfortable, stylish, and thick but not heavy. Super cute. Easy to get on and off, buttons are easy to use and overall She very happy with it. This jacket goes with everything and my daughter loves it. An article of clothing for all seasons. I would highly recommend this jacket!" —Aidagm

    Price: $22.19 (originally $36.99)

    18. A sleeveless midi dress that Jessica Rabbit would've had in her closet. If dresses could talk, this one would say va-va-voom.

    Model wearing dress

    Promising review: "I have this now in three different prints! Such a lovely dress. I throw on a denim blazer and ready to go! Must-buy for your summer wardrobe." —Loverofshoes

    Price: $39 (originally $78, available in sizes Plus — 3X)

    19. A sophisticated sterling chain necklace to instantly make a statement, no matter what you're wearing — this easily dresses up any outfit.

    Necklace on white background

    Promising review: "I love how light and dainty and expensive it looks on the neck — it reflects light beautifully without being too sparkly. Well-built and will last a long time due to it being gold plated over sterling silver versus brass — which I prefer. Love this and can’t wait to wear it out when quarantine is over!" —StyleDATX

    Price: $28.80 (originally $48)

    20. High waist skinny jeans — Gen Z might have cancelled these but I will never give them up because they fit like a glove and give a killer silhouette. These babies are so comfortable and stretchy, they might be the first piece of denim to replace sweats as your go-to pair of pants.

    Model wearing blue jeans

    Promising review: "Okay so when Good American first came out, I initially didn’t have much interest just because I thought oh it’s another 'celebrity brand' but let me tell you KHLOE did her thing! Most comfortable and stylish jeans I have ever tried on. I just bought my first pair and they are so sculpting. You are definitely paying for what you are getting!" —Alondra C.

    Price: $99 (originally $175, available in size 22)

    21. A pair of faux snakeskin sandals so you can make a statement plus you can show off that uber cute pedicure and keep your outfit simple.

    Sandals on white background

    Promising review: "Love the simplicity of this sandal. The saddle brown color is neutral enough to be very versatile. Super comfortable padding on the sole and toe opening is not too tight." —Nobu

    Price: $35.96 (originally $59.95, available in sizes in 6—7 and two colors)

    22. An off-the-shoulder sheer chiffon blouse for a comfortable day look that you can take into the nighttime. Pair it with flats or heels to instantly change your look without switching outfits.

    Model wearing blouse

    Promising review: "Got this in my Trunk Club shipment and I'm in love! Strikes the perfect middle ground between 'dressy' and 'lounge-worthy'. Definitely looks better when tucked in and puffed out slightly (similar to what the model is doing — helps the edge mimic the sleeves). Saw some other reviews complaining about the top being sheer — the Rich Black at the very least does not have a see-through middle, my wife and I checked it at a variety of light levels and angles and saw no issues there. Very happy with this!" —NotLewbowski

    Price: $47.40 (originally $79, available in XXS—L, available in two colors)

    23. A pair of mules that are worth the money because of the super comfortable, itsy-bitsy heel. Plus, the style allows your feet to stay cool throughout the season.

    Brown mules on white background

    Promising review: "I just bought these shoes a few days ago and OMG I am in love. They are crazy comfortable (both top and sole) and look stunning. I have the 'tortilla' color and it s the perfect nude color. The suede top is butter soft and gorgeous. I will be putting shoe protectant on the top to keep them from getting too dirty or water damaged." —RDunne

    Price: $59.96 (originally $99.95, available in sizes 5—11 and two colors)

    24. A V-neck jumpsuit made from a silky soft jersey fabric to save you loads of time when you need to find something classy, quickly. Just slip into this ensemble and voila — you're ready for that weekly check-in with your boss.

    Model wearing gray jumpsuit

    Promising review: "This romper is amazing! Versatile, comfortable, easy to get on/off. Is great now for super casual working from home, and will dress up nicely with a blazer when I have to go back into the office or for client meetings. The short sleeves are a huge plus! It’s hard to find knit rompers with sleeves, and that was a big factor in me keeping this at this price point (which is a bit high compare to other knit items I’ve bought recently of similar quality) but the sleeves put it over the top and make it worth the premium price, in my opinion." —PDXmom

    Price: $68.60 (originally $98, available in sizes 1X—3X and four colors)

    25. A weighted blanket that adds character to even the most bland furniture. It's buttery soft, warm, and will make your bedroom or living room quarters feel nice and homey.

    Model sleeping with weighted blanket on top

    Promising review: "Really high quality blanket with the weighted beads spread really evenly. I got the 20 pound one and it is definitely heavy but feels so comforting. It took a little getting used to the weight but after a week I am sleeping better and falling asleep more quickly." —Karen

    Price: $160.65 (originally $189)

    26. Dr. Martens 1490 lace-up boots, which are an ultimate classic that never go out of style. I've used them as rain-boots, festival boots, and just having fun with my friends boots. This is one pair of shoes that will never let you down and might outlast some of your friends.

    Dr. Martens 1490 Lace-Up Boot in black patent

    Promising review: "This is my second pair of these boots and the previous pair lasted seven years. They are incredibly stylish and go with everything and wear so well. Classic boots that will never be out of fashion. No wonder they are always sold out. I'm glad I got them when I did.." —Sydlovesfood

    Price: $119.97 (originally $149.95, available in sizes 5-10)

    27. A splurge-worthy T3 Cura Luxe Professional Ionic hair dryer that will make you think a professional stylist did your hair. You'll be in disbelief how silky and healthy your hair looks. If you do your hair at home, you absolutely need this.

    Model blow-drying her hair with the T3 Cura Luxe Professional Ionic hair dryer

    Promising review: "I have been a fan of T3 products for a long time so when I found out they were launching a new dryer, I had to get my hands on it!!! This dryer exceeded my expectations — drying my hair SUPER fast and leaving it beyond soft. And, it's gorgeous. I also love the auto-pause feature — when I put the dryer down on my vanity, it shuts off, and then restarts when I go to pick it up! Genius!!! 5 stars!" —IslandGirl2020

    Price: $229.99 (originally $285)
