Recessionista: Slim Fast

Who knew fashion could be so slimming!

I just found a chic tote that is only $65, and -- eureka!-- it makes you look half your size!

In no mood to spend an arm and a leg for an oversized bag, I stumbled on this tote from American Apparel. I'm attracted to the size of his bag and the look of it. It's perfect for lugging all my glossies, my two mobile phones, various daily accessories plus all of those other neccessities I need to entertain my twins.

Plus, it's only $65 and comes in two colors -- black and this cool gunmetal. But what I love the most? The fact that in a sick way, this bag makes me look smaller. Hee hee!
