Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

The Top I Wore On TV Is From Banana Republic

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

banana+republic+silk+blouse The Top I Wore On TV Is From Banana RepublicSince I posted the video from my most recent television appearance, I have received numerous emails and messages commenting on the cuteness of my blouse.

A few weeks ago, I saw the top on the sale rack (you know I can’t resist a discount) at Banana Republic, and it spoke to me. It whispered, “I would look so yummy on tv…buy me!” So I did.

The Silk Tiered Top ($39.99 – 59.99) comes in four colors and is available in regular, petite and tall sizes.

Celebrate The Launch of PH8 with a Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Fashion, Giveaway | Leave a comment

ph8 Celebrate The Launch of PH8 with a Giveaway!Yesterday, bebe’s newest line, PH8, officially launched.

PH8 is bebe’s newly launched retail concept (set to replace BEBESPORT) stores throughout the US and Canada on November 5th. PH8 – pronounced ‘fate’ – is an active-inspired sportswear collection that extends way beyond the gym.

The look is effortless sexy, modern and hip – designed for the busy on-the-go woman as she weaves her way through her varying lifestyle activities. PH8 works anywhere – at the gym, after the gym, jaunts to the farmer’s market, a quick lunch with friends, an afternoon coffee with the girls. It’s also the perfect way to dress when traveling. The PH8 collection includes clothing, accessories, bags, shoes and jewelry and is priced from $19 to $139.

PH8 President Tara Poseley has described PH8 as a total lifestyle concept that differentiates itself from being just another casual apparel store. “The collection speaks to a total lifestyle and is targeted toward a woman who doesn’t want to look like she is trying too hard to be sexy…but she has an effortless attraction about her that exudes confidence and a sense of playfulness.”

katy+perry+ph8+1 Celebrate The Launch of PH8 with a Giveaway!This week, to celebrate the launch of PH8, we’re partnering for a giveaway. One winner will receive PH8 Leggings with Side Inset ($36), a favorite of singer Katy Perry.

To enter the giveaway, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “PH8 Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Thursday, November 12th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Friday, November 13th, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents.

Good luck!

Lilliana Vazquez Q&A: Looking Chic On The Cheap

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Fashion, Interview | Leave a comment

Lilliana+Vazquez Lilliana Vazquez Q&A: Looking Chic On The CheapI’ve often said that – even if I was a multi-millionaire – I’d still be clipping coupons, scouring the Internet for promo codes and making beelines for clearance racks. Deal-hunting gives me a sense of control in a world full of chaos – and one of the best recessionista resources is The Cheap Chica’s Guide To Style, a website that shines a spotlight on high fashion at low prices.

For me, bargain shopping is more than just a hobby. It’s a way of life. And as with any endeavor, practice makes perfect. So I was thrilled to chat up the blogger behind Cheap Chicas (and fellow Philadelphian), Lilliana Vazquez, and pick her brain about how to dress luxe for less.

Read on for Lilliana’s tips on looking fabulous within the framework of your own figure, budget, and lifestyle.

SP: When did you first fall in love with fashion and beauty?
LV:
My mom says out of the womb…even when I couldn’t talk she says I had a say in what I wore!

SP: What was your first big break as a style expert?
LV:
My first time on air at FOX4 in Dallas was my biggest break early on…since then I’ve turned it into a regular gig on NBC 10 in Philadelphia where I’m their fashion and style correspondent.

SP: What is your style philosophy?
LV:
I’m all about mixing. High and low, plaids and prints, pearls and denim. I love using unexpected pairings to create a look that’s unique and interesting and NOT predictable. Oh and style has nothing to do with money or labels…you can look just as good in head to toe thrift as you can in couture.

Chanel+Jumbo+Classic+Flap+Bag Lilliana Vazquez Q&A: Looking Chic On The CheapSP: What is the most treasured item in your closet?
LV:
My Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag…it’s my most prized possession!

SP: If you could spend the day with one fashion icon (living or deceased), who would it be and what would you do?
LV:
Coco Chanel and Christian Louboutin…they’re both masters. I’d have Coco edit my closet and dress me to her liking and have Louboutin personally fit my foot for a custom pair of shoes!

SP: What makes a woman ‘stylish?’
LV:
Confidence. You can wear anything if you have the attitude to pull it off…whether it’s pair of shoes from Payless or a Lanvin gown.

SP: Who are some of your favorite designers of all time?
LV:
Chanel, Balenciaga, Giambattista Valli, Lanvin.

SP: Which trends will be big this fall/winter?
LV:
Over the knee boots, excessively chunky knits, and motorcycle jackets.

motorcycle+jacket+over+the+knee+boots Lilliana Vazquez Q&A: Looking Chic On The Cheap

SP: Which trend(s) do you wish would die?
LV:
I love to have fun with fashion and trends are a part of that so I’m willing to try anything once…but I won’t spend money on super trendy items and I always advise my readers not to either.

SP: Current handbag obsessions?
LV:
I rarely spend money on “it” handbags…I have two or three classic bags that are designer but the rest of my collection is comprised of bags that cost $50 or less! Trends I’m loving are cross body for day and evening, 80′s inspired shapes like the drawstring and oversized clutches are my fave!!

SP: Which celebrities would you love to style and why?
LV:
Cameron Diaz because she’s fearless and has an amazing body to dress, Nicole Richie because I love her eclectic style and she’s petite like me, and January Jones because she’s so fresh and new on the fashion/celeb scene but has incredible potential!

SP: Where are your favorite places to shop?
LV:
Zara, Forever 21 (it’s my mecca and I visit at least 3x per week!), H&M, Cherry Hill Thrift Center, Barney’s Shoe Floor, Madewell, Ebay, Lulus.com, Target.

SP: What tips do you have for women who want star style on a budget?
LV:
Make a list of your celeb style icons and watch what they’re wearing. If you keep a close eye on their fashion choices you’ll start to see a few common threads (colors, textures, cuts, styles, etc) and those are the items you purchase at budget friendly stores like Forever 21 and H&M. These items are their “signatures” and by incorporating them into the clothes you already own, you won’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe to get their star style! Oh and for the best in celeb looks for less, go to my blog!!

SP: What are three fashion accessories every woman should own?
LV:
An amazing pair of nude pumps (4″ at least and your legs will look a mile long), a big, chunky statement necklace and tons and tons bangles that can be layered together!

nude+patent+pump Lilliana Vazquez Q&A: Looking Chic On The Cheap

SP: Can you share some figure-slimming fashion tips?
LV:
Use belts to accent your waist…especially in the Fall/Winter when you’re layering! Understand proportions and how they relate to your body…shortening a skirt by one inch or sending your blazer to a tailor to be taken in can make you look 2 sizes smaller!

SP: What products are staples in your makeup bag?
LV:
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Tarte Creme Blush, NARS Catfight Lipstick, CoverGirl LashBlast and I’ve never met a lipgloss I didn’t like!

pjs+for+the+cure+photo PJs For The Cure, Plus A Giveaway!

PJs For The Cure is offering two different designs for boys, three for girls, and three for women – including a mother-daughter matching set.

To kick off the campaign and bring awareness to this important issue (24 million Americans have diabetes, and a new case is diagnosed every 30 seconds in the U.S.), Spoiled Pretty is partnering for a giveaway.

One lucky lady will win a set of women’s pajamas (in winner’s choice of print). The pj’s feature cozy, super soft 100% cotton knit; inside pocket suitable for an insulin pump or iPod; ribbon drawstring and piping. These pajamas are great for sleeping and lounging. As I type this, I’m wearing the Grey Stripe Print jammies. They are so comfy and stylish that – for the past few days – I’ve been putting them on as soon as I get home from work. If I had the other two styles, I’d rotate them so I could could give my oversized tees and ugly sweatpants a much-needed rest.
