Fashion Forward: $25 Gifts
Is your list of holiday giving getting bigger and bigger? If you're still looking for the perfect gift, but your pocketbook is getting smaller, don't worry, Diana Diaz shows us some fashionable finds under 25 bucks in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN -- It costs hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to look as good as fashion's top runway models.
But you don't have to spend a fortune to give a fashionable gift this holiday season.
Monica Hernandez: "There are gifts you can give that are under $25."
There will be no bah-humbug if you shop at Blush Boutique on South Beach or at their second location in South Miami.
Here, you can find anything from trendy T-shirts to tank tops for under $25.
Buy your best friend an American Apparel tank top, which comes in a rainbow of colors.
Monica Hernandez: "Everything that we are showing is in style, it's in the moment, and it's a nice gift that you're still going to be stylish and not outdated."
Empire waist belts are big this season and so is animal print.
Get two-for-one with this animal-print belt.
Or try a scarf or pashmina instead.
From a metallic belt, to a pretty pendant, it's easy to be fun, fashionable and frugal.
Monica Hernandez: "If you do want to spend a little more money you can group a bunch of little pieces that are under $25 together, and the nice thing about it is they are accessories, and you can't go wrong with that."
You can be cheap and chic at Cheap-n-Chic Outlet Boutique in Southwest Miami-Dade.
Forget the lump of coal, good boys and girls can get designer duds here at bargain prices.
Mario Gonzalez: "We have $300-$400 dresses that have been reduced to $75-$100. Lots of nice tops that are $200-$300 and are now $30-$50."
That's because the store buys clothing from high-end boutiques throughout the country, then sells them for a lot less.
In fact, for under $25, you can take home parts of this outfit -- the pink hoodie, the earrings or the sandals.
Mario Gonzalez: "We can definitely help you find something for that special someone for a reasonable price."
Buy your friend a fun, sequin mini dress, or go for these gold dangling earrings instead to add to your wardrobe.
Mario Gonzalez: "You can also come in and buy some pieces to add to an existing outfit you have already."
And, for that really special friend, try something a little more risqué, like low beams -- and we're not talking about the ones on your car.
Or check out the latest in thong underwear sold at Bolufe Boutique in Boca. The best part is they all come in these fun little packages.
Both Blush and Cheap-n-Chic have items over $25, in case you have a little extra cash to spend.
