Levi’s Perfectly Slimming Jeans

After years of trying to find the perfect jeans to flatter my petite, curvy frame, I hit the jeans jackpot and found a pair that is both chic and cheap!

Levi’s Petite 512 Perfectly Slimming Straight Leg Jeans have a fit that slims, smoothing tummy curves with innovative inside-pocket design and a fabric woven for superior stretch and recovery.

My midsection is significantly smaller than my hips, so I usually have a problem with a gaping waistband. But the cut of these jeans sits higher (but not so high as to veer into “Mom jeans” territory) and properly fits my curves. The dark wash also visually slims and gives the jeans a dressier look – which makes them versatile for day and night ensembles.

Oh…and did I mention that they’re less than $45? In fact, you can snag a pair (like I did) at Macy’s* for $32.99!

*The 512 style is also available in regular sizes.

Le Col Cashmere Giveaway!

I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods – but these days, Philadelphia is pretty much indistinguishable from the Arctic tundra. It’s the kind of cold where you pile on whatever is warm – no matter how frumpy dumpy it makes you look. Lucky for me (and my sense of style), I recently became acquainted with a cold weather accessory that is both toasty warm and tres chic!

Le Col Cashmere is an affordable luxury, made of 100% cashmere and finished by hand in a traditional French torsade pattern. The updated twist on the winter scarf provides even more comfort than the standard cold weather accessory due to its construction. The tube scarf’s seamless “pullover” style, as opposed to the standard wrap-around scarf, provides full coverage and protection. So whether you’re riding the streets on your Vespa or simply out for an afternoon stroll, Le Col Cashmere’s snood will keep you toasty warm on even the most blistering cold days.

“In addition to its practical sensibility, the product is non-gender specific and therefore appeals to both men and women who are looking to show off their personal sense of style during the winter months,” explains Ruben Auszenkier, Le Col Cashmere co-founder and General Manager Europe.

The must-have style of the season is available in two equally comfortable and flattering silhouettes – the signature Le Col Cashmere snood and Le Grand Col Cashmere’s extra long snood – and five gorgeous shades (I own the camel).

You can own one too because, this week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Le Col Cashmere and one reader will win a Le Col Cashmere snood in his/her choice of color!!!

Enter to win by leaving a message in the comments section. Make sure to include your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky!

Contest is open to U.S. residents. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Sunday, February 20, 2011. Good luck!

I already own this open cardigan in camel – and I’ve been meaning to pick up some other colors, but it kept slipping my mind. Good thing I’m absent-minded because I just snagged two more (in black and gray) – and I got the 20% off – plus one of the sweaters was half off with some other limited time offer.

Fargo Fabulous: The Trapper Hat

It’s freaking freezing right now in Philadelphia. Thank goodness I had the good sense to ask Santa for a trapper hat last month. If you live in a city or town where the mercury often hovers around (or dips below) zero, please do yourself a favor and pick up one of these toasty warm toppers.

Trapper hats are very trendy right now. But, honestly, I couldn’t care less how popular they are because they’re so damn practical.

On my walk to and from work, my trapper hat keeps my head so warm that I forget how frigid it is outside. And the (faux) furry flaps protect my ears from the bitter wind. Surprisingly, my trapper doesn’t ruin my do like I imagined it would. Once I arrive at the office, just a few seconds of finger styling refreshes and revives my hairstyle. 

Here are some stylish and affordable options:

So does the trapper hat get two manicured thumbs up? You betcha!
