Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options.

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

kimye kim kardashian kanye west wedding Kimye Wedding Makeup Artist: Mario DedivanovicBy now, you’ve probably heard all of the Kimye wedding details. Kim Kardashian wore a Givenchy Haute Couture lace gown (she slipped into a bodycon Balmain dress post-ceremony) and Kanye West was outfitted in a custom Givenchy tuxedo. Not to be outdone, little North wore a dress also designed by Givenchy’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci. The couple exchanged Lorraine Schwartz wedding bands, were serenaded by John Legend, and are currently honeymooning in Ireland.

Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue – given Anna’s alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I guess this explains why Kim went back to her natural hair color.

Check out this behind-the-scenes video with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and baby North on set of the April cover shoot with Annie Leibovitz. CONTINUE READING

Personally, I’ve found the Sochi Olympics to be underwhelming, so far. But you know what keeps me tuning in – at least on the figure skating days, anyway? Johnny Weir.

Honestly, the two-time Olympic skating champ turned commentator could be speaking Russian as he critiques the performances for NBC Sports Network. All anyone really wants to know is where they can buy his fierce fashions and accessories.

Tom Ford ‘Jennifer’ Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Featured, Handbags | 3 Comments

I jokingly refer to myself as “the bag lady.” Except it’s not really a joke. I carry way too many bags. On an average evening, I return home from work (and daycare) juggling my purse, my laptop bag, Westley’s backpack and lunch bag – plus any shopping bags I’ve accumulated that day. And I need to have at least one hand free to prevent my fearless two-year-old from darting into the street. So I’ve been searching for a crossbody bag to help lighten my load and free up my hands.

The crossbody I want should be work appropriate, but casual enough for weekends. I also need a one that is roomy enough to accommodate my hoarder tendencies, but not so big that I can never find what I’m looking for.

jennifer aniston tom ford flap over handbag Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!

After some window shopping and exhaustive Google searches, I finally found my brainchild brought to life…on the arm of Jennifer Aniston. Her ubiquitous Tom Ford Flap-Over Bag was exactly what I had dreamed – well, minus the $4,000 price tag. I was so frustrated because I love everything about this bag (particularly the fold-over, zippered flap) and knew I’d be hard-pressed to find a lookalike in my price range.

So I continued my search and found these similar styles:

Anya Hindmarch Maxi Zip Cross Body Bag Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!Anya Hindmarch Maxi Zip Cross Body Bag, $895
Pros: Absolutely gorgeous
Cons: Hello, this bag is $900! And at 11. x 6″, it’s on the small side

 

Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal To The Metal Natasha Bag Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!Marc by Marc Jacobs Petal To The Metal Natasha Bag, $458
Pros: Roomy and bird embellishments are cute
Cons: Bird embellishments also make this bag a little less work-appropriate and $500 is still more than I want to spend

 

 Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!Kate Spade New York Cobble Hill Little Minka Satchel, $378
Pros: High quality, versatile design and available in a variety of colors
Cons: I’m cheap and it’s too close to Christmas for me to splurge on this bag, though I might snatch it up if I spied it at an outlet store

 

Marc by Marc Jacobs classic q natasha Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q – Natasha Crossbody Flap Bag, $368
Pros: Similar to TF bag and closer to my price range
Cons: Still more than I’d like to spend and very trendy (I see this bag on women at least once or twice a day)

Emma Fox Classics Large Foldover Tote Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!Emma Fox Classics Large Foldover Tote, $207
Pros: Looks expensive, but totally within my price range
Cons: Not wild about the “convertible” aspect of this tote/crossbody

michael kors bedford tassle shoulder bag Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!

Michael Kors Bedford Tassel – Medium Convertible Leather Shoulder Bag, $298
Pros: Has the same style and vibe as the Tom Ford bag, but at a reasonable price point. Also love that it can be worn not the shoulder or crossbody. The tassel is also a nice touch.
Cons: Not a fan of the Michael Kors name plate on the front flap.

 Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!

B. Makowsky Laurel Glove Leather Flap Top Crossbody Bag$158
Pros: Similar look (and it also comes in rose gold, which is a favorite of mine). The price is right too.
Cons: That brown stitching has got to go.

 

lodis dahlia joelle hobo Tom Ford Jennifer Flap Over Bag Lookalikes Found!So – long story short (too late), I almost settled and bought the Kate Spade bag. But the shopping gods intervened and led me to the Lodis Dahlia Joelle Hobo (sorry…no longer available). It’s the spitting image of the Tom Ford bag (down to the zippered flap and expandable gusset) for just $268!!!!!! I can’t believe my luck.
