Il Pleut!

This weekend in NYC is supposed to be rainy. I myself have two bomb-ass pair of rain boots already - but these wellies are pretty damn cute. Stay dry!

UGallery is a fantastic site for cheap art. It features all emerging artists who are still in school and serious about pursuing their dreams of becoming an artist. Who knew original pieces could be so affordable? Support the cause!

Bubbly by artist Marissa Shell, $45


Bathrooms are the most overlooked yet easiest room to decorate in a house. If I had an apartment where I could go nuts (such as a water closet that doesn't have mauve tiles and a gold sliding door) then I'd cover it with a crazy wallpaper and have all white accessories. One day!

Snowball perfume bottle, $7.95 on sale

I'd love to buy a bevy of these, serve some red wine, sit on some floor poufs and eat cous cous with my fingers. I like to dream big.

El Presidente.

Thanks to the economic stimulus package - maybe one day this blog will be back to posting absurdly expensive finds! Until then, let's praise the man in charge.

Obama bandana, $8


This is one shell of a lamp. I love textured capiz and the sea breeze tones. If you live in a beach bungalow in Malibu - this should certainly be part of your decor. And if you live in dingy NYC like me, you should purchase this to fake a beachy vibe.

Capiz Table Lamp, on sale for $44.99

More Stripe Hype.

Apparently I'm in the midst of zebra fever. This is quite a steal though. I'd use it in a bathroom or by the kitchen sink.

Zebra rug, $34.88 for 2'x3'

Stripe Hype.

I love plywood chairs. It's sick really how much I love them. This is MAJORLY on sale over at CB2. I want to buy four for my amazing kitchen table.

Give your sweetie, friends or fam a FREE e-card for Valentine's day. Now if that's not recession friendly I don't know what is.

Yes, Please.

These are all under $20.

So get to shopping if you're smart. Dresses from here. We must stimulate the economy! Go forth and shop.


Very on sale and very cool. I love botanical prints. An even cheaper route? Head to a local bookstore and check out the calendar bins. The other day I was at Strand and they were all $1 each. Frame a few cool calendar pages and you've got a WALL full of cheapy art.

Sketched Botanicals, $9.99 on sale

I Wear My Sunglasses At Night.

This is the best site for cheap art. Hands down. I want this print by my gal Dallas Shaw.

Light Up.

These look a little like lettuce, but no matter. I love the green hue and a set of two would look great on a coffee table.

Green Fleur Tealight, $9.95

Le Bain.

I have glass shower doors (boooo!) but if I didn't, I'd practice my college level French on this shower curtain. C'est brilliant, n'est ce pas?!

French Vocabulary Shower Curtain, $20

Moderne Glassware.

Love this collection from Fish's Eddy. Buy one and use it as a bud vase! ! Or go big and buy a whole set.

Modern Pink Stemless Wine Glass, $4.40 on sale

A New Beginning.

Hello D&D's! I am sorry I've been gone for so long - but I've decided to rethink this blog. It got to be depressing to post about items I can't afford, so instead, from here on out I will be your bargain guru. You won't ever find an item for more than $50 and the products will be just as lust worthy.

And feel free to email me with decorating dilemmas, fashion crisis or gift giving quandries - same D&D - only cheaper! (And we like cheaper).
