Cheap Chic: Designer for Under Twenty Bucks / by laurel

It seems that nearly everyone has a diffusion line with a megabrand megastore these days, with plenty more on the horizon still to come (Thakoon, Hayden-HarnettMcQueen, and a second Rogan line for Target, Charlotte Ronson for JCPenney, Matthew Williamson for H&M, and the list goes on). 

Even though Comme des Garçon's collection for H&M might still be a wee bit out of price range for gifting this Christmas, there are plenty of other designer options - at recession-friendly prices. 

First up, here's a look at a few gift ideas that are all under thirty bucks - the most noteworthy being Norma Kamali's collection for Wal-Mart, with cute tees for just $6. Check back for the next post wherein I look forward to the newest designer diffusion collections yet to hit stores.
