Circuit City Slashing Its Prices...

Well, unless you have been living in a bubble FABULOUS readers, I would assume that you are aware that Circuit City has been effected by the economic decline.  The store filed for a Chapter 11 last month and in turn will be closing 155 of its store locations throughout the country. What does this mean for its consumers? Well........ if you are located next to a store location that is closing, it is a beautiful day in your neighborhood (couldn't resist a little Mr. Rodger's) for you! At the 155 closing store locations, you will find liquidated prices!!!!!!!!! So go to this website  to see if you are oh so fortunate to live close to a store location that is closing. This would be a great opportunity to upgrade the electronics in your home. The good thing is that since all of the locations are not closing, the store is still offering and honoring warranty plans on items purchased.  So you have nothing to lose and much to gain, including more cash left in your account!

Keyshia Cole "A Different Me"

Hey Fabulous readers! I wanted to take the time today to remind you that Keyshia Cole's 3rd album "A Different Me" hit stores on yesterday. Keyshia graced the stage of 106 & Park discussing the new album. "A Different Me" seems to be just that. This is a lighter side of Ms. Cole. The album is happier, more up tempo, and refreshing. While on 106 & Park, she made reference to her remaking her image and trying to go to the next level in her career. Keyshia is rocking a new look for this album with black hair and a shorter cut (which we believe is the CHICest that Keyshia has looked in the past 3 years that she has been on the scene). She has a new attitude and seems much happier. While on 106 & Park, she reported that she revamped everything, including her sound (which has grown), background singers, dancers, and band (the FABULOUSNESS that is my husband is her musical director..... love you babe)! Her song "Make Me Over" is a testament to Keyshia Cole has becoming. Since the last album she has definitely been "Made Over!" If you have been watching this season of her reality show, you would notice that Keyshia also has incorporated God more in her life (you can never go wrong with that) and just maturing into a beautiful woman. We here at Fabulously Chic and Cheap are loving Keyshia! We wish you well on the new album, new look, new life, and new you!

Fab Song A Tribe Called Quest- Electric Relaxation

Fab Readers,
Every now and then we get in the mood for some really good hip hop, unfortunately it's difficult to find with a lot of the new artists (in our opinion). Whenever we feel in the mood for some good, chill hip hop we turn to electric relaxation, it's that song for us (not to mention I have had a crush on Q-tip since I was like 5). Let us know what's the perfect hip hop song for you and in the meantime enjoy the video.

Norma Kamali for Walmart

Fab Readers it seems as though we are on Walmart extra hard right now but they keep doing things to tickle our fancy. It seems as though the Walmart Gods have heard their shoppers' many pleas in regards to their unfashionable attire (compared to Target) and have decided to finally do something about it. Walmart has partnered with famed designer Norma Kamali to bring a fashionable, on trend, and most important AFFORDABLE collection just in time for the holidays titled NK for Walmart. Norma is best known for athleisure designs (they also offer career wear and casual),that in our opinion is 20x better than a Juicy sweatsuit any day of the week. The collection does not disappoint... for the price point offered you get quality merchandise that is so cute it has us second guessing Target even more than before. Never fear if Walmart is out of stock in your size, Norma Kamali is also carrying the items on their website (no shame in their game). So fab readers, next time you are in Walmart remember you can buy something more important than your bulk toilet can but cute clothes FOR UNDER $30.00. Check out a few of our faves below.

Walmart........ Where Christmas Costs Less!

Hey FABULOUS readers. We need to speak some truth here today. The economy is not looking good! I mean the work recession is being used on CNN to explain the condition of our economy. Large agencies are cutting back and laying off employees. While other companies are asking baby boomer employees to leave their work site through early retirement. People have lost money in their investments and pensions. At times like this, we need to account for every penny we are spending. We had been advent Target shoppers (you know basically trying to take the high road to everyday shopping items). Well not anymore!!!!!! We hear at FABULOUSLY CHIC and CHEAP are over being caught up in the name of the retailer. At times like these, we are concerned more that we are making our money work for us! So we have turned to our friends at WALMART to assist us in this area! As you may already know, Walmart's Black Friday sale this year was a HUGE success. They beat out every competitor by offering the lowest prices for the most sought after items. Walmart is continuing with the unbeatable prices by offering great electronic prices, as well as home goods, and everyday items. Target, we love you but right now Walmart is getting the job done! is also offering unbeatable deals on items in time for this holiday season. So if you haven't already, pay a visit to your local Walmart or check out the online store. Tis the season to be jolly and giving. Walmart is helping make that possible for all families this holiday season. Remember....... Christmas cost's less at WALMART!

Fab Song Britney Spears- Circus

So guys we hope you had a fabulous weekend. This week we decided that the song of the week is going to the ultimate come back artist: Britney Spears. It seems like you can't do anything without hearing her songs on the radio or seeing her on we figured we might as well jump on the bandwagon too. We have to admit she came back strong and looking more fabulous than ever before, and we love this song. Enjoy the video.

Kitson vs. HSN-Sam Edelman

Sorry for the delay of post fab readers. We have been a little busy trying to take care of business. Yesterday we had the opportunity to check out the new Kitson at the Americana mall in Glendale. While we must we haven't shopped Kitson since we've began living the Fabulously Chic and Cheap lifestyle we weren't super impressed. There were a few standout items bu for the most part the store was full of items you can get at any entry to mid level luxury department store just merchandised in a cooler, younger way. While in Kitson we did notice these super cute Sam Edelman Over the knee fringe boots that were gorge (that's my new word for anything that I love). In Kitson the shoes were $195.00 however Home Shopping Network has the exact same shoes on sale (in chestnut) for $129.00. So hurry over to HSN and pick up a pair of the latest trend.

Fab Song- Kanye West Workout Plan

Alright Fab readers so we have plans to go home for the Holiday's this year, that means leaving this beautiful sunny California weather for the cold dreary Chicago winter, but it's ok because we haven't been home in over a year. With that said, we are on a mission to go home looking fabulous because who knows when we will be home again (at least in the winter). We are on a mission to drop a few pounds quick and what's a better song to have on the I-Pod while jogging than Workout Plan. We know we aren't the ones trying to bring in the New Year in a fabulous way, hopefully this will help you stay on the treadmill an extra five minutes. Enjoy

Black Friday Shopping

Hey fab readers,

How was your black Friday? We hope that you found some great deals. I wasn't so lucky. While my sister racked up on electronics for the house from Wal-Mart, I missed out. I go at 4:30 and stand in the two block line holding my son and by the time we got into the store all of the shopping carts were gone. Instead of giving up I decided to carry him through the mobs of people to find Thomas the Train toys on sale. So after waking up early for Thomas the Train we retreated back home and into the bed. That's how my day went...Let us know if you had much success with all of the fab sales that were happening this weekend.
