All that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and shop.

Along with tinsel, holly and mistletoe, the holiday season also brings plenty of occasions to shop for. With so many occasions to shop for, why not let your Salemail help out? From your company holiday party to Christmas dinner, we’ve got you covered. Our next suggestion is to narrow down your sale matches to include just the clothing categories you’re on the lookout for right now. Let your Salemail do all the work by selecting specific clothing categories. On your profile page, click on Sizes/Categories and make sure your selections are in line with all your current shopping needs.
In addition to updating your clothing types, you’ll also want to make sure your sizes are up-to-date. On the categories page, scroll down and double check that all your sizes are correct. Items go fast and we don’t want you to miss out on anything just because your sizes have changed.
With these updates, your Salemail will be prepped and ready to go just in time for Black Friday & Cyber Monday. Update now and be ready to shop later!

SHOP IT TO ME LAUNCHES IPHONE APP
—Customized clothing sales alerts now available on the go—
SAN FRANCISCO, NOV. 18, 2013 —Shop It To Me, the free personal shopping assistant, has introduced its first iPhone app, making it easier than ever for shoppers to buy the clothing they want on sale in their size – just in time for holiday shopping.
Shop It To Me has been delivering personalized sale updates to its shopper-members since 2005, alerting them when clothing brands they love are on sale in their sizes. Shop It To Me searches more than 100 online department stores and specialty retailers to uncover sales on items that exactly match each shopper’s preferences. Relevant sale items are compiled into a single email and delivered to the shopper, who can click through to a retailer to make the purchase.
Now, members can get those customized sale alerts right on their smartphones as well as via email and online, so they can check for sales anytime, anywhere.
“Consumers want to shop sales but are tired of being bombarded with emails from dozens of different retailers pushing everything under the sun,” said Charlie Graham, founder and CEO of Shop It To Me. “We let you see when just the items you care about go on sale in your size.”
“At Shop It To Me, personalization is part of our DNA. We act as the personal shopper, searching all the top retailers and bringing each person only the things she cares about, in the sizes she needs, all in one sales alert. With our new mobile version, she can feel confident that she won’t ever miss a sale on something she loves!”
Shop It To Me for iPhone is part of a new unified interface that enables shoppers to check their latest sales, to save favorite items for later and find out what’s trending. The mobile app is available exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. Shop It To Me plans to add social shopping to its offerings this winter.

We’re so excited! One of our fave frugal fashionistas — Lilliana Vazquez – has written her first book! The Cheap Chica’s Guide to Style: Secrets to Shopping Cheap and Looking Chic features the best of her brilliant blog and it’s the first time we can recall a fashion book that shows us how to style ourselves like an expert and save money in the process! Who doesn’t love that?
Lilliana told us she has been in love with fashion since she was a child. “I get it from my grandmother. To this day, at 87, she doesn’t leave the house unless she’s really put together.”
Like many of us, Lilliana’s budget just didn’t live up to her high-end fashion tastes. So she learned to scour the racks at TJ Maxx and Marshalls and to check her Salemail religiously to recreate the looks she coveted for a lot less. (Her last big score was a pair of Loeffler Randall boots at 40 percent off.)
An avid reader of both fashion and budget blogs, Lilliana felt that none offered advice on how to look chic on a budget. “The style blogs featured pricey clothing, while the clothes on budget blogs looked cheap.”
So, she created her own blog to offer other budget-challenged fashionistas ideas for “dressing chic for less.” The blog established Lilliana as a style expert and opened the door for frequent guest spots on shows like Today, Rachael Ray and Katie. It’s also the basis of her new book, which goes on sale Nov. 5. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
In the meantime, we asked Lilliana to share her advice for chic, but cheap, holiday dressing:
- For casual events, she suggests purchasing an embellished or lace blouse and wearing it with a dark skinny jean. Repurpose your metallic sandals from the summer and you have a look that’s totally luxe for less!
- Even formal events don’t have to break the bank. One little black dress can be transformed into different looks just by adding a statement necklace (layer two smaller necklaces for a cheap but chic alternative) or fabulous earrings. And don’t forget about a bold lip – it’s one step to glam!
As for holiday gift giving on a budget, go with items for the home that aren’t seasonal – like simple white candles or a collection of mini-vases. She’s also a fan of DIY: a nice bottle of wine can be packaged beautifully.
