PZI.... Shaping Your Curves!

Ladies, it has come to our attention that PZI is having an outrageously CHIC and CHEAP sale going on at their website. For those of you who have no idea about PZI, it is a clothing line specializing in jeans and tees. PZI is based out of Atlanta and has been around since 2002. The jeans that PZI (Perazzi Apparel Company) offer caters to FABULOUS women blessed with a streamlined waist, fuller hips, and a curvy bottom (such as myself). PZI jeans are designed to fit the curvy woman's shape comfortably without compromising current style and trends. The FABULOUS CHIC sisters, known as Mary Mary, are currently being endorsed by PZI and note that the jeans are comfortable and fit well on their FABULOUS curves! After looking on the site and taking the time to learn about the brand, I will be ordering a couple pairs of the CHIC denim that PZI offers (especially with the 75% off sale they are offering on a number of items). It will feel good to own some jeans that I don't have to maneuver into, can hardly breathe once I am in them, and give me a pancake bottom (OH NO!!!!!). I for one am opting to give them a shot and think that you should do the same. With 75% off, what do you have to lose? The jeans normally range from $79-$99. Many of the 75% off jeans are retailing at $29, so rack up while the sale lasts! Check them out at

Fab Songs- Lady Gaga Just Dance and Solange Knowles-T.O.N.Y.

This week we have two of our fave artists Lady GaGA with Just Dance and Solange with T.O.N.Y. We love Lady GaGa, every time we hear her music we are ready to go out, and it is no different with this song. Is it just us or is Christina Aguilera very Lady GaGa-esque, anyway enjoy the video.

Oh we adore Solange, she is our favorite. Her quirkiness and personal style wins points in our book (she can do no wrong...we defend her till the end). If you haven't noticed we have a thing for the Knowles sisters. Check out her latest video T.O.N.Y., which is one of our faves on the album. Enjoy your day Fab readers

Fab Finds at H & M

Over the weekend we took our boys to the Christmas tree lighting at the Americana Mall in Glendale and it was great. There were several musical acts Santa came gliding on the stage and fireworks went off for over five minutes after they lit the tree. While the kids enjoyed it there were too many people for our liking (over 20,000 people showed up to this festive event; thank GOD for VIP seating!). Anyhow, after the crowds dispersed and we chatted with fam and s few friends, we hustled over to H&M to see what they had to offer, and boy was it worth the wait! As we all know, you can always fond a FABULOUS pieces at your local H&M. Tell me this, how about when you can find FABULOUS pieces at 70% off!!!!! My sister and I could not resist the 70% off sales racks (we will have to return at a later time to explore the CHIC regular priced items). We both were able to add FABULOUSLY CHIC skirts, shirts, and sweaters to our wardrobe for way under retail prices. I got items at prices I could have never thought imaginable. I left with 3 packed to the max shopping bags for $140.00, now how FABULOUS is that. You have to love H&M, there is no telling what kind of FABULOUSNESS you will leave with! Pay your local H&M a visit and wonder through those 70% off bank account will thank you for it later!! We will add pics of our FABULOUS FINDS at a later time (as the website did not offer the CHIC items that we were able to add to our collection.

Cute Tights

Fab readers, in case you have not noticed, we hear at Fabulously Chic and Cheap love to wear bright colors and have fun with our clothes. Our philosophy on fashion (and in life) is you only live once, so if you want to wear your faux fur jacket to breakfast with you friends then wear it (and own it like you are on the red carpet, even if it's 9:00 a.m.). With that said, one of our favorite accessories this season is tights. We adore the bold colors and prints that are offered this season at every price range. Everyone from Chanel to Payless Shoe Source is getting in on it and you can count on us to bring you the most fabulous chic and cheap tights around. F.Y.I. Urban Outfitters has a special on tights 2 pair for $20.00 and Old Navy has great opaque tights in fun colors for $6.50

Fall Fashion: Flat Boots

Image: EOnline
With the Fall weather settling in, it appears that we can finally put away the flip flops and pull out our fave comfy shoes: the flat boot. We love the flat boot, how often can you honestly say your shoes are cute and comfortable. The flat boot looks great with skinny jeans tucked inside, leggings and shift dresses. Most important, flat boots work great in all weather conditions because we all know that it is not fab trying to look cute and avoid slipping on the ice (trust us, we have fallen and it is nothing nice!). Check out a few of our favorite flat boots.

Fab Find: Marshalls Shoe Megashop

So fab readers, yesterday on my lunch break as I was mulling around the streets of Glendale, CA, I bumped into a place called Shoe Megashop by Marshall's and it was quite fab. Shoe Megashop offers a wide range of designer and regular brand shoes and accessories ranging from Coach, BCBG, Cole Haan and Giuseppe Zanotti just to name a few, all priced considerably lower than the original retail price(think along the lines of DSW). I didn't find a shoe in the store that was over $200.00, how fab is that. Unfortunately, you can not shop online but click here to see if there is one in your area.

Michelle Obama's Election Style

Image: Getty Images
We all know that what makes a fashion icon an icon, it's the ability to take fashion risks. The ability to take risks and stand by them is what makes a fashion icon, good or bad, deemed a fashion hit or fashion miss you stand by your style. That is what makes Michelle Obama a fashion icon in the making. Last night as Barack Obama was making history as the first African American president-elect, Michelle was making history of her own (in a political setting) wearing a daring, on-trend, red and black ombre Narciso Rodriguez spring 2009 dress. While at first we did not know how we felt about the dress, after looking at several pictures of her in it, we decided that we except the dress (like we have a choice lol). We stand by her decision to wear this dress and help you find your own ombre dress on a Fabulously Chic and Cheap budget. Check out a few of our favorites.

Vote For Change Part 2

Image: NY Daily News
No problem at the polls today, we got there at 6:15 and 6:30 a.m. respectively, and anxious like a kid on the first day of school. While my sister was at the poll before the workers (talk about excited), there were about 40 people in line before me (did I mention the polls did not open until 7:00 a.m. and by the time it opened it was over 100 people there). It was great to see so many people there having intellectual political conversation so early in the morning, not to mention I had the pleasure to meet a woman that has been voting for 60 years and this is the first time in her life she has ever voted for a democrat. I was out of there by 7:30!!! So go out and vote and let us know how it went for you.

Today is The Day: Vote for Change

Image: Liberty Film Festival
On this historic day we've decided to keep the post short because at 6:00 a.m. we will be at the polls hoping to avoid the long lines we know are destined to face. Hopefully we won't have any voting day horror stories to share with you of standing in lines for five hours, we will check in later to let you all know how it went. So stop reading and GO VOTE (If you're in CA- NO ON PROP 8). (Oh but check out the video below....I know it's from last week but we thought it was better fitting for today so we waited to post it). And in the words of Puff "Aint No Line To Damn Long."

Fall Fashion: The Boyfriend Jean

Image: EOnline
Fab readers, today's fall fashion trend is the boyfriend jean. Love it or hate it, this look has been covering all of Hollywood's young starlets and has began to grow on us here at Fabulously Chic and Cheap. The first celeb to take on this trend was Katie Holmes to horrible reviews by fashionistas around the world, but she kept wearing her rolled up boyfriend jeans and now they are everywhere. The key to pulling off this great look for a casual autumn day is to pair the jeans with other casual pieces including loose fitting t-shirts and boyfriend cardigans. If this is a trend you've tried for Fall send us a pic, meanwhile check out a few of our favorites below.
