Last week, Mary Kay turned up the heat in Miami during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim by glamming up guests at the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge. Celebrity makeup artist and Mary Kay Glam Squad member Marissa Nemes gave attendees a sizzling Miami look, transforming lashes and lips with Mary Kay’s new Lash Love Waterproof Mascara in Black and NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in two of the season’s hottest shades – Rock ‘N’ Red and Mango Tango. To complete the look, Mary Kay Glam Squad member and wardrobe stylist Lawrence VonRumpf decked out attendees in hot off-the-runway fashions and accessories.
Sounds like fun, right? Wish you were there? Of course…me too! But if you weren’t able to join Mary Kay in Miami, it’s okay – because we’re bringing the “neon” runway look to you! As a Mary Kay Glam Squad blogger, I’m hosting a HOT giveaway – and one of you lucky ladies will win a Miami-inspired look! (more…)
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:
bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.
DV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.
Hue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx… (more…)
The much anticipated Old Navy $1 Flip Flop One Day Sale is finally here!
This Saturday, June 30th, all Old Navy stores across the country will be hosting the annual $1 Flip Flop promotion. (more…)
A few weeks ago, I posted a pic of this Max & Cleo dress I was planning to wear to a wedding and solicited your advice for complementary shoes. The resounding consensus was that I should jazz it up with a pair of colorful kicks. But while I loved many of your shoe recommendations, my wide, flat feet started to hurt just looking at those stilettos. So I decided to use your suggestions as style inspiration and search for similar heels in a less intimidating height. Unfortunately, 99.9% of the cute heels out there are too narrow for my Flintstone feet, not to mention ridiculously sky high. Seriously, how women can stand in these things, let alone stroll? Inquiring minds want to know.
I went to Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, DSW, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s – and came up with nada. I was this close to switching the dress – all because I couldn’t find appropriate shoes – until I happened upon the Sofft Ramona II Pump. (more…)
Kate Spade, why do you do this to me? I was trying to save money. This peplum pretty is gonna haunt my dreams.
The Kate Spade leopard ikat randie top is currently a wallet-busting $268. But hopefully my size will stay in stock long enough to see a sale.
Many of you visit Spoiled Pretty for my beauty and fashion advice. But now it’s my turn to solicit style suggestions from you.
In a few weeks, I’m attending a friend’s wedding and this is the dress I’m wearing. It’s by Max & Cleo and I snatched it up for just $25 at Bloomingdale’s this past weekend (it’s originally $143). I concede that the dress doesn’t look like much on the model, but it looks great on me (and hides a multitude of sins) – hurrah! Anyways, I need shoes to complete the ensemble and I’m absolutely perplexed. Should I rock a pair of nude pumps? Or maybe inject a pop of color? I need your help!
To weigh in, leave your two cents in the comments section. Thanks in advance – and I’ll be sure to post what I ultimately pick.
Yesterday, I paid my a visit to my local LOFT, looking for a must-have pink blazer I spotted in the current issue of People StyleWatch (my style bible/guilty pleasure). But when I started searching the store, the jacket eluded me – even after I combed the racks several times over. I did spot two, however – only they weren’t for sale. Two of the saleswomen were rocking the blazer and it was like the fashion gods were taunting me.
The Shopbop $100 Gift Card Giveaway has come to a close and it’s time to unveil the winner. This contest was so popular and all of you were so excited about this prize that I wish I could gift each and every one of you with a gift card to make your Shopbop dreams come true. But I only have one to give away at random. So, without further ado, the winner is…
This Saturday May 19th LOFT is celebrating summer with “The Now Style Event” at all of their retail stores. Receive 30% off your purchase ALL DAY, a free summer tote with your purchase of $75 or more….PLUS they’ll be giving away a $50 gift card every hour from 12-5pm. (more…)
Shopbop.com is downright dangerous. Just when you’ve convinced yourself to be a frugal fashionista, you start ogling the website’s offerings and every item becomes a need-it-right-now situation. Especially this time of year when I can’t seem to find my summer clothes (I swear there’s a troll hiding in my laundry room that eats my favorite pieces) – or I’m just over absolutely everything in my closet.
There are so many precious little babies on Shopbop that I want to adopt. (more…)
