Small Change
Ditch the heavy purse this summer and tote around the necessities in these portable pouches. The wad wallet ($23) is cleverly disguised as a bankroll of fakie hundreds—perfect for low-rollers. The girls can pack away ID, cash, card and gloss in the Taco Pocket ($5.75)—a small zippered pouch that looks just like a tasty Taco Supreme. The rubber hen coin purse ($17) is another option that holds more than coin but less than hen.

Hot Lip Service

Summer Breeze Dress
This season’s long hem lines are perfected in the Yak n Yeti maxi dress ($44). Its lightweight cotton and flattering empire waist with soft gathers make it flowy, yet lean—not at all like a Snuggie. Pair it with the floppy Hat a Girl hat ($38) and oversized sunglasses, and you’ve got the ultimate summer look perfect for taking in some music at the Plaza Bandstand.

Foxy Boxing
Get the best of both worlds with Foxers, cute undies designed to look like men’s boxers peeking out from the top of your low rise jeans. The BString ($22) is a comfy thong with a boxer waistband—because frankly, no one wants to see your whale tail anymore. The boy short style ($24.50) is ideal for lounging about on a lazy summer weekend when you just can’t seem to leave the house.

Show Some Skin
Unbelievably soft pima cotton makes the colors in these tie-dyes pop in unique Technicolor designs. The sexy tank top ($39.99) shows off bronzed shoulders and goes great with jeans or a girly, crinkled cotton skirt from Chapare, which specializes in South American apparel and handwoven Panama hats.
