RemChic Recommends: Must-Have Products August 2010

August is already here, which means we all need to bring out our mix master skills, polish our credit cards, and do some back-to-school shopping! Because we are sensible couture lovers and are versatile and creative with all of our purchases, I've selected items that can be mixed and matched with other items you already own, generating a brand new (seeming) wardrobe without maxing out your precious AmEx. Additionally, I wanted to incorporate this fall's hottest hue- orange. Now, if you are like me and the first thing that springs into your mind when you combine "orange" with "fashion" is your  dreadful orange cable knit turtleneck from the early 90's, you're not alone. However, this also means August is a great time for you to keep an open mind and a sharp eye out for the 2010 interpretation of orange. Look out for ambers and coppers, as well as sharp cheddar cheese orange, like the ShopRuche and Madewell belts I've featured. Also, refer to my upcoming post on Costello Tagliapietra's fall 2010 RTW collection and how they incorporated orange into their ensembles!

Also, keep your eye out for classics with a twist. Take Burberry's black oversized tote in the bottom left corner or the J.Crew cardigan with an asymmetrical zip. These are examples of great pieces that will set you apart from the crowd, but in a sensible, classic way. Additionally, I try and switch up my scent every semester and this semester I am definitely going with Chloe! It's a very feminine, but strong scent. If you are on a tight budget crunch, opt for remixing the clothes you already own and investing in a few accessories or funky beauty buys, such as the Cupcake Lip Balms from Urban Outfitters. The balms are cheap and chic, not to mention having chapped lips is a huge faux paux, am I right? Anywho, happy back-to-school shopping everyone! And stay tuned because RemChic is going to have a giveaway coming up! If you want your voice to be heard, vote in this month's poll!

Hey everyone! RemChic reader Indra told me that I left out the picture/shopping link for the Forever 21 boots and she is totally right! Unfortunately, they are out of the brownish color I picked, but here is the link for the same books in another color. I am so sorry for my mistake!

totally agree about the chloe perfume! I have been trying to use up my others perfume bottles so I don't feel guilty about going to sacs and buying a bottle

I'm currently partial to MAC perfumes. They are really inexpensive and smell amazing! I love the turquoise one- not sure if it has a name, but it's great!
