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

Naturalizer Boots: Fashion-Forward Footwear That Fit!

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Fashion, Featured, Feet, Sale, Shoes | Leave a comment

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!

Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Featured, Shoes | Leave a comment

ann taylor kate hudson fall 2012 black bow dress Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012

I’m absolutely obsessed with Ann Taylor’s Fall 2012 collection, which is “inspired by the continental glamour of 1960s Paris.” Last month, I posted about the ad campaign – starring Kate Hudson. The first images definitely had me intrigued. And now that the full collection has been revealed, I must admit that the teasers did not disappoint. I’m loving the black and white, pops of color, animal prints, and the sweet, feminine touches (i.e., lace and bows). It’s like someone at Ann Taylor climbed inside of my brain and created a collection just pour moi.

Here’s what’s on my ultimate wardrobe wish list:

ann taylor kate hudson fall 2012 featured Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012This Tie Back Short Sleeve Sweater ($58) is business in the front, cocktail party in the back.

 

ann taylor kate hudson fall 2012 leopard dress Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012The White Leopard Ponte Dress ($138) is a must-have. And check out the edgy, exposed zipper on the sleeve. Genius, right? Rock on with your bad self, Kate! CONTINUE READING
