    Just don't put the pillows WITH the chair. Yikes!

    We continue to have a passionate love affair with Pier One's fabric-covered chairs, and we're not afraid who knows it. Even staffers at Pier One seem to be courting the Josette Chair (was $199.95; now $169.99) -- the item description says, "This chair is so cute, we want to wear as a dress. It clearly makes legs look good." Can't argue with that! Of course, if you're looking for something that'll take up less space in your studio apartment, try bringing a retro vibe via a more affordable pillow or two. The Burnout Velvet Pillows ($29.95 each) didn't do too many drugs in the '60s -- burnout is a technique that creates patterns on velvet.

    Tibi's printed silk dress is 70 percent off right now, down from an un-doable $445 to $133.50. The geometric, monochromatic print and the buttons marching down the side will have people thinking you truly know how to scour the best vintage shops.

    What's a retro look without a teensy coin purse to harken back to a time when you could actually buy a meal with change? This metallic butterfly-patterned mini clutch ($28) also has an abundant sprinkling of cherry blossom, obviously perfect for any District resident. It comes via Etsy.com seller Retrospettive.
