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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Abaco Sale at Ideeli: Get On This!

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Fashion, Handbags, Jewelry, Sale | Leave a comment

abaco+maxim+handbag Abaco Sale at Ideeli: Get On This!

Last year, I bought this gorgeous Abaco bag at Ideeli.com…and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The modern design is extremely versatile; I can dress it up or down. And the leather is buttery soft. Every time I carry it, friends compliment the bag and strangers stop me on the street. In fact, a few weeks ago, some crazy lady on the bus started petting it while she raved about the style and color (you know I promptly changed my seat).

Abaco is a Parisian label, and is very hard to come by here in the states. So when people ask me how they can get their hands on one of their bags, I’m always at a loss for words. I just received word that Ideeli is hosting another Abaco sample sale, so I couldn’t wait to share the news with my girls.

abaco+octopus+handbag Abaco Sale at Ideeli: Get On This!

Abaco Sale
Sale starts Monday, May 18
Prices start at $69 (save up to 77%)
Abaco offers roomy handbags without the fuss. Following a true “joie de vivre” philosophy, this Parisian label unites vintage charm with modern practicality, creating a new twist on classic feminine style. Backed by extensive experience as a makeup artist, designer Raquel Achache crafts bags from supple leathers in indefinite colors (such as blue-gray). Because these subtler shades are also harder to find, she works directly with her factories to develop these custom colors, giving Abaco Laguna bags a distinct, sophisticated look. Pair this color palette with perfectly slouched silhouettes and the results manage to feel both new and familiar.

Here’s a sampling of Ideeli’s other sample sales this week:

Furla continued full-speed-ahead as it established shops in Rome, Paris and New York, and garnered a cult following among style mavens across the globe. Today, traditional craftsmanship and clean lines remain marks of the house as Furla unfurls Italian elegance on us all.

I’d never heard of Guillaume Hinfray until five minutes ago, when I received an email announcing that he would be selling his wares on Ideeli.com. But once I spied these leather peep toe sling backs with a stacked wooden heel, homeboy Hinfray earned a permanent spot on my radar.

The Guillaume Hinfray sale begins Wednesday, April 29th at 11am. Prices for this event start at $199.

Roberto Cavalli moves fast. Born into an artistic family, Cavalli headed straight for the Art Institute, where he trained in textile print. Before graduation, the fledgling designer had produced a series of floral prints on knit fabric that caught the eye of several prominent Italian hosiery labels. By the early 1960s, he had founded his own design house in Florence and was turning out unabashedly glamorous ready-to-wear for spirited, independent women. It wasn’t long before his intrinsic love of excess and appreciation of nature became trademarks of the collection.

Inspired by the Oriental accents and brilliant gemstones they encountered, the pair launched a collection composed of glamorous yet wearable pieces with an exotic touch. Made of luxury materials like 18 karat gold and semi-precious gems, the line is most certainly one in a million. No wonder that pieces from the collection have shown up at red-carpet events on such fashion-forward actresses as Julianne Moore and Sarah Jessica Parker.
