I was gifted a $40 Groupon-like certificate for spending on the American Apparel online shop. What are some of the best items to buy?

I don't love American Apparel, and most of my previous purchases from there have been hit or miss. I find that sizing is erratic, quality sometimes questionable, and their unisex clothing is widely unflattering for my body shape (5'2", 125 lbs, curvy upper body, straight but not super thin lower body). That said, I still think there are things to be bought there that could work for me, and hey... FREE CLOTHES.
What are you favourite non-unisex items from American Apparel that I should consider spending my $40 on? I'm willing to spend a little bit extra, but not too much, and I'm also open to suggestions like "seriously, just buy $40 worth of socks".
