If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


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.

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.

Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress

susana monaco flutter tube dress 1 Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress

I just had to share how much I adore this Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress I just bought from Shopbop.com.  I’m usually very hesitant to buy clothing online because I’m short and curvy and I can’t be assured that something will look right until I try it on. And even when I do buy clothes off the Internet, they’re almost always petite clothes because the proportions on regular clothes make me look like I got dressed in front of a funhouse mirror. But I decided to take a chance on this dress because a) I don’t have any cute going out dresses in my closet, b) this dress is so cute it’s ridiculous and c) it’s on sale for 50% off.

Well, I’m glad I decided to live dangerously because the dress fits amazing and is the most flattering thing I’ve bought in a long time. The double-jersey knit hugs without being restrictive. Plus since it’s not thin, you don’t have to worry about it showing any lumps and bumps. The peplum on top of the skirt plays hide-and-seek with the areas I’m most self conscious about, and makes this body-con dress more wearable for those of us without model bodies. And the color just screams summer, right?

This dress is so hot, I’m building an entire girls’ night around it.

If you’re as enamored with this dress as I am, act quick…it’s going fast. But be sure to check out Susana Monaco’s other dresses Shopbop.com – she’s no one hit wonder.

PS – Gilt actually has a sale of Susana Monaco going on today. So check that out for more options.

 

Bust a Move On Over to Saturday.com

saturday is final1 Bust a Move On Over to Saturday.com

Earlier this month, Kate Spade (aka creator of cuteness and the reason why I can’t seem to keep money in my wallet), launched a brand new line called Kate Spade Saturday.

Kate Spade Saturday is a new global lifestyle brand created to channel the spirit of Saturday seven days a week. This younger, more accessible sister to kate spade new york shares the same DNA: it’s colorful, optimistic and bold, but it expresses these values in a more casual way. Saturday offers simple shapes and go-anywhere silhouettes. Functionality and utility are key. The collection is crafted with honest materials like crisp cotton, canvas and natural vachetta, brightened with bold colors and strong prints. The line includes apparel, handbags, accessories and items for the home.

After browsing around Saturday.com, I have to say that it’s everything I hoped it would be. The line is polished but fun – retaining Kate Spade’s cheekiness – but at a more affordable price point. Here are just a few of the fashionista-friendly items I’m eyeing up:

Naturalizer boots Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly suggest you check out Naturalizer. Yes, Naturalizer.

I know that the brand name evokes old lady, orthapedic-looking shoes, but Naturalizer’s shoe and boots styles are anything but. The designs are classic (with a nod to current trends), versatile and super comfy.

 Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

My beloved Naturalizer Arness Boots

Last winter, I bought a pair of black riding boots and I’ve worn them at least 3 or 4 times a week through the spring. Now that it’s getting colder, they again have become my go-to footwear for fall. They look chic paired with a dress or skirt, and also with skinny jeans or leggings tucked in.

And for those of you with “athletic” calves or who wear a narrow or wide width shoe, you’re in luck because Naturalizer offers all of these options. Personally, I have wide feet and need a wide shaft boot – and I can tell you that it’s damn near impossible to find a cute boot that fits. But Naturalizer sells several.

I’m so happy with my black riding boots that I’m going to buy a brown pair…and my decision comes at the perfect time because they’re having a sale! Now through November 25, 2012, take 20% off your order at Naturalizer.com using promo code UWINT32A.

Naturalizer Juletta Boot Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

The “Juletta” boot (above) has been marked down to a very reasonable $179.99 – but with the coupon, it’s an even better $143.99!

Update: Use coupon code UWINT29A for 20% off all boots, plus an extra 15% and free shipping!

Scandal-ous: Peek Into Olivia Pope’s Closet

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Featured | 1 Comment

olivia pope scandal kerry washington Scandal ous: Peek Into Olivia Popes Closet

I am obsessed with ABC’s Scandal, starring the gorgeous and uber talented Kerry Washington. If you’ve never seen the show, you need to get with the program…literally. And if you’ve seen it but didn’t get hooked, I don’t know if we can be friends. It’s just that good.

In Scandal, Kerry plays Olivia Pope, a D.C. crisis management guru/”fixer.” She’s the former White House Communications Director for the President (who is married, but just so happens to be her soul mate), but has left to start her own crisis management firm, Olivia Pope and Associates. Sounds entertaining, right? It is! Anyway, Olivia has a killer instinct and a killer wardrobe.

In this Bluefly Closet Confessions video, Kerry gives us a special look into the wardrobe of her character. Enjoy!

PS – If you’re a fellow Scandal fan, tweet me on Thursdays at 10 ET. I do an informal live blog of the episodes and would love to chat with you about the show!
