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

Sandalicious Giveaway: Free Havaianas!!!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Fashion, Giveaway | 17 Comments

It’s freezing cold and your tootsies are toasty warm in your Uggs. But it’s not too early to be thinking about warmer weather and baring your soles. Stay with me – you’ll like where this is going…

This week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with Havaianas for a sandalicious giveaway!!!

My sister’s birthday is in July and every year, Havaianas are at the top of her wish list. And she’s not the only one obsessed with this fabulous line of footwear; this past September at New York Fashion Week, people stood in queue – for hours – to score a limited edition pair of Havaianas.

But here at Spoiled Pretty, it doesn’t have to be your birthday. I won’t make you wait in long ass lines either. And the winner won’t just receive one pair of Havaianas. Oh no. We’re spoiling the lucky winner with four pairs of sandals – from Havaianas’ 2009 collection!

Comfort and fashion rarely mix. Happily, Havaianas are an exception. Dubbed as the world’s best sandal, their more than 40-year old secret rubber formula is responsible for buttery-soft, bouncy, flexible sandals that have blissfully cushioned the feet of many dignitaries and celebrities around the world. These comfortable sole saviors have been paired with flirty skirts, tailored shirts and jeans, helping glamour girls like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Cameron Diaz keep their poise on the streets of Hollywood.

In 2009, Havaianas once again delivers with new designs made for maximum style and comfort. With their signature marshmallow-y comfort and alluring designs, Havaianas continues to give its followers the perfect blend of fashion, function, and fun every woman needs in life!

helena+de+natalio Upcoming Sales at Ideeli.com
Helena De Natalio
As the only woman Madonna would ever label a fashion role model, Eva Peron put Argentine women on the map as diehard style mavens. Some 60 years later, South American women continue to be known for their creativity and style. This fact hasn’t escaped American handbag designer Helen Hoppock. After joining the Peace Corps and living in Natalio, Paraguay for two years, American handbag designer Helen Hoppock fell in love with the handcrafted leather goods found throughout the continent. Working with a local seamstress inspired her to combine her deep interest in social responsibility with her devotion to local craftsmanship. In 2005, the talented and industrious Hoppock moved to Buenos Aires to create a line of handbags that would marry fierce fashion attitude with a true humanitarian spirit. Soon enough, the Helena de Natalio line was born. Using only the finest Argentine leather, the workers at Helena de Natalio are given fair wages, good working conditions and humane benefits. And the bags, with their unique detailing and gorgeous color palate, couldn’t be chicer. This event is scheduled to start on Thursday, January 8th and will run for 36 hours. Prices for this event start at $110.

ferragamo Upcoming Sales at Ideeli.com
Salvatore Ferragamo
Born in Bonito in 1898, Salvatore Ferragamo made his first creation slippers for his sisters to wear to their confirmation – at age nine. His love of fashion only grew, and he studied shoemaking in Naples for a year before heading to Boston to join his brothers at work in a cowboy boot factory. Yearning for more, he convinced his brothers to relocate to California to create luxurious made-to-measure shoes for Hollywood’s glitterati. The rest, as they say, is history. Soon after setting up shop, Ferragamo established a celebrity following and began a long period of designing for the cinema. The most powerful and glamorous women, from Eva Peron to Marilyn Monroe, flocked to him, establishing him as the “Shoemaker to the Stars.” From here, his label expanded to include ready-to-wear and accessories. While each piece is unique in styling, all are unified by an overarching attention to detail and commitment to craftsmanship. This event is scheduled to start on Wednesday, January 7th and will run for 36 hours.

Bey, You’re Just Too Funky For Me…

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fashion | 2 Comments

sasha+fierce1 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...
It seems that Beyonce – or rather her alter ego, Sasha Fierce – has been channeling Thierry Mugler lately. For the last few weeks – in photo op after photo op – she’s been seen wearing a vaguely familiar, futuristic-looking robotic glove. I couldn’t quite place it…until I came across new promos for her upcoming album – one of which has her sporting the very famous Thierry Mugler Motorcycle Corset from 1992.

sasha+fierce2 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...Both the glove and the corset were featured in George Michael’s Too Funky video, which was directed by Thierry Mugler. I wonder if, in her mission to one-up Rihanna, Beyonce will resurrect any other crazy fashions from that video.

Not beauty related, I realize…but it gives me a reason to share Too Funky with all of you. Enjoy!
