Seven Fantastic Buys under $7 (You'll Be Surprised at What's on the List!)

For the extremely frugal minded, take delight in these affordable summer buys under $7! You would never believe that the most expensive thing on this list is the lipstick!

First up, a new pair of sunnies for only $5.50! Protect your peepers and add something extra to your outfit with Oversized Cheetah Back Shades ($5.50 at Charlotte Russe).

H&M prices bathing suits just the way they should be--cheap!--and you can get this entire swimsuit for under $10. Each piece is priced at $4.95 each at H&M. If you're lucky enough to live near an H&M or shop in the online stores, snap up this deal fast!

A striped top is a summer staple! The Essential Striped Top ($5.80 at Forever 21) is at a price point you just can't beat for a top that you'll wear over and over again. Pair it with jeans and your choice of a pair of the pretty summer shoes that I posted yesterday for a fantastic look!

I have these earrings, which I got from Click Boutique and Gallery where I live, but if you don't live around here you can get the Layered Arrow Earrings for $6.00 at Charlotte Russe. They're a great statement making pair, and look excellent with your hair swept into a side chignon or a top knot.

I'm pretty sure I've talked about Maybelline Lipcolor in Make Me Pink ($6.63 at drugstore.com) before, but allow me to elaborate again on why I love this lip color. It's the perfect natural lip color! Make Me Pink brings out the natural pink hues in your lips for a barely there look. It's perfect alone or layered with gloss. Also, if you're a newbie to lip color, I suggest trying this shade.

I love Forever 21's eyeshadow palettes! I bought one last year for $7 and I'm still using it and there's a lot left. That's what I look for when it comes to eyeshadow--variety in shades and how long it lasts me. For the diversity that you get and the staying power, the makeup quads at the drugstore are more expensive than this  Love 21 15 Piece Eyeshadow Set ($5.80 at Forever 21).

And beauties, if you bought everything on this list, you would only be spending about $39.63. Now that's stretching a dollar!
