Musette's Most Wanted: Economic Edition

Our funds may be dwindling during these tough economic times, but let's not waste anymore energy begrudging our bank accounts. Musette recommends five ways to keep cool throughout the crisis.

1.) Stay Hot in Heritage
Summer, winter, day or night - Minnetonka moccasins are here for you. At a starting price of US$35 you can't go wrong in a pair of super comfy, super cute fringed booties. minnetonkamoccasinshop.com

2.) Never Turn Down a Freebie

Just in case you needed another excuse to buy Paris Vogue, it's December/January issue includes a knockout 2009 calendar shot by none other than the sex magnet himself Terry Richardson.

3.) Come to H&M for Comme
If you're hankering for a little Comme des Garcons but can't quite stomach the cost then pop into H&M to check out their affordable line. You'll be able to nab yourself a spotty scarf or cropped coat and still have enough money left over for lunch. hm.com

4.) Great Homewares Don't Have to Break the Bank
Fearing yet another voyage to Ikea? Mix it up at CB2, a one stop shop offering anything and everything to make your house a home. Pick up a couch for under $400, a lovely lamp for a tenner or a set of Andy Warhol butterfly print serving plates at US$0.95 each! cb2.com

5.) Special Items for a Special Price
Because of MJ we can easily afford to rug up for winter, carry our books to school and stuff everyone's stockings. Have a spree at Marc by Marc Jacobs special items stores and score anything from a cashmere beret to a quilted tote for less than US$50.00. marcjacobs.com
