It seems that my addiction to ideeli.com is contagious. Ever since I reminded you all about this members-only online shopping community, I have been inundated with requests for invites. As there are only so many hours in the day and I am but one sleep-deprived blogger, I can’t seem to keep up with the demand. So the friendly folks at Ideeli hooked me up with an invitation code to pass along to each and every one of you.

To become a member of Ideeli (it’s free!), simply visit ideeli.com and type in spoiledpretty where it asks for your invitation code. It’s that simple.

If you’re on the prowl for a new purse (this is my life 24-7/365), there’s really no better place to hunt. Every time I turn around, I see the most to-die-for handbags at pinch-me-I must-be-hallucinating prices.

Happy shopping!

Well, you’re going to feel all salty now that I’m giving you the chance to win the Calista bag in Licorice (black). It’s okay…I forgive you. Unlike Santa, I don’t know (nor do I care) if you’ve been good little girl. But one thing’s for sure…you’re going to look totally bad-ass carrying this beauty of a bag.

Crafted from rich Italian leather, Calista is accented with solid gold-plated hardware with a lacquer coating. A zippered compartment holds all of your beauty essentials, iPod and cell phone pockets keep your electronics organized and easily accessible, and a spacious interior easily accommodates the 5-7 pounds of nonsense that the average woman insists on lugging around.

Ideeli is an invitation-only shopping community that offers online sample sales of the most sought-after fashion, home and beauty products. Ideeli members also enjoy privileged access to luxury lifestyle experiences such as fashion shows and sold-out concerts.

If you’re a handbag connoisseur like me, get thee to Ideeli. You will be absolutely amazed by the variety of merchandise, and you’ll think you’ve hit the jackpot when you see the their selection of luxury purses at pauper prices.

This summer, I purchased an Abaco Paris Laguna handbag for $250 (originally $750)…it arrived on my doorstep a few days later and I was bowled over by the quality and the scrumptious leather. It’s one of my most beloved bags, and I get compliments galore every time it’s on my arm.

Handbag Adoption

When it comes to handbags, I’m like Angelina Jolie. I just want to adopt ’til I drop.

The other day on my lunch break, something compelled me to stop into Leehe Fai, a chic clothing boutique in the Rittenhouse neighborhood of Philadelphia. As I was just browsing, I caught a glimpse of Botkier’s Morgan Satchel and momentarily lost my breath.

botkier+morgan Handbag Adoption

It’s as if Botkier read my thoughts and crafted the bag of my dreams. Unfortunately, it’s a little out of my price range right now. So I’ll keep dreaming…dreaming up get-rich-quick schemes so Morgan and I can be reunited.

It’s times like these that a fairy godmother would come in handy.
