Here’s just a peek of what Ideeli.com has going on this week:
It’s no secret that I’ve got a little girl crush on Kim Kardashian. If you’re a regular visitor to Spoiled Pretty, you know that Kim’s photos appear on these pages more frequently than my own. She never seems to have bad hair day and her makeup is always flawless – which is quite a feat, considering the pack of paparazzi that shadow her every move.
Her blog is on my daily reading list, and I check in often…hoping that she’ll spill some secret that will help me crack the Kardashian code and cop her It Girl style.
Kim is quite the jet setter – racking up frequent flyer miles as she dashes between L.A. and N.Y.C., from photo shoots to swanky shindigs. It’s not easy keeping up with this Kardashian, so I was a giddy mess when Kim accepted my invitation for a Spoiled Pretty tête-à-tête.
Enjoy and take copious notes!
SP: You never seem to have a bad hair day. What products are you using to keep your hair looking so healthy and shiny?
KK: I always change my shampoos and conditioners, anything from Finesse to Pantene. I also don’t wash my hair every day so that it stays thick and healthy.
SP: I am on an eternal quest to find products that help me achieve the signature Kim Kardashian glossy nude lip. Can you recommend a few?
KK: My favorite lipstick is NARS Belle De Jour – it’s the perfect nude! My favorite lip liner is MAC Stripdown and I love MAC Gloss in Instant Gold.
SP: I was very excited to learn that you’re working on a fragrance. How is it coming along, and have you considered creating your own makeup line? I would buy the entire collection!
KK: The perfume is coming along great! It’s been an amazing experience creating it. It’s been a lot of work, but I am beyond thrilled with the outcome. I have thought about my own makeup line, and it’s absolutely a goal of mine for the future.
SP: How has your look evolved over the years?
KK: I used to love heavy makeup and smokier eyes, and wouldn’t really try new looks. Now, I will try anything and love fresh, lighter looks.
SP: If you could only choose one designer to wear for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?
KK: I’d have to go with American Apparel. Their designs are cute, edgy and stylish – but are still SO comfortable at the same time.
SP: What is your most memorable fashion moment?
KK: My most memorable fashion moment would have to be at this year’s Oscars when I wore a gorgeous Lloyd Klein gown with my hair pulled up in a slick bun. I felt like a princess.
SP: Every time I see you photographed, you are carrying an insanely chic handbag. Which are your current favorites?
KK: When it comes to bags, Chanel is always a classic, but I also love Balenciaga because their styles are fun and edgy – I’ll always rock those!
SP: I’ve got a little junk in the trunk, so what jeans would you recommend for women with a well-endowed derrière?
KK: When it comes to jeans, always opt for styles that have stretch in them no matter what the brand.
SP: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
KK: Hopefully, married with five kids!
Many thanks to Kim Kardashian for penciling Spoiled Pretty into her busy sched. For more style and beauty tips, be sure to check out Kim’s blog!

I was very tempted to keep the following information to myself…
Ideeli is having some off-the-chain sales this week…and some of my favorite handbag designers are all up in the mix. I’ve been craving a new bag lately, so I think I might just break down and adopt a new one. Just don’t tell Mr. Spoiled Pretty – he seems to think that when you acquire a new purse, you have to throw an old one out. I know, I know…but he’s a man and, therefore, knows no better.
Anyway, when it comes to handbags, I’m a little cutthroat. I considered keeping these amazing Ideeli sales a secret, lest I risk a lot of competition come buying time. But I’ve never been one to hold out on y’all, so I’m going to share the deets. And hopefully, my good deed will be rewarded with the extra yummy handbag I’ve been jonesing for.

Beauty.com has garnered quite a following for its fabulous collaborations with top fashion designers, and now for the first time, sister site drugstore.com is partnering with fashion designer and new mom, Jenni Kayne, who designed a chic, portable bag filled with eco-friendly products for mom and baby. The stylish Mommy Bag, available for a limited time exclusively at drugstore.com with a purchase of $75 or more, is a roomy canvas pouch that Jenni created as a compact yet practical alternative to a more traditional diaper bag.
Kayne, who welcomed her first child Tanner late last year, wanted to create something large enough to store products for a quick outing and small enough to stash tidily into a stroller or slouchy handbag. The washable, durable bag has elasticized pockets for bottles and snacks and offers a reliable way to keep baby travel basics separate and accessible.
“When I was pregnant I was looking at diaper bags and thought there should be more options for busy new moms,” says Kayne. “Diaper bags can be so cumbersome and sometimes when you’re going out for a walk or need to run a quick errand with a baby, a giant bag doesn’t make anything easier.”
This functional, fashionable design by Jenni Kayne is valued at over $50 and comes filled with full and deluxe-sized samples for Mom and Baby, many from the drugstore.com Green and Natural store:
* Philips Avent Silicone Orthodontic Pacifiers, 0-3 months
* Philips Avent 4oz/125ml Bottle BPA-Free, 0-3 months
* Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion
* Bellybar Vanilla Dreams Milkshake
* Bellybar Baby Needs Chocolate Bar, Chocolate Toffee Crisp
* Seventh Generation Diaper
* California Baby Calendula Cream
* California Baby Super Sensitive Shampoo & Bodywash
* Earth’s Best TenderCare Chlorine-Free Diapers & Wipes
* Earth’s Best TenderCare Chlorine-Free Baby Wipes Resealable Travel Pack
* Susan Brown’s Baby Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer
Target is partnering with two of my favorite handbag designers, Lily Band and Sulaika Zarrouk, to launch a limited-edition handbag collection – Felix Rey for Target.
This chic and incredibly-priced collection is the eighth handbag launch in a series of limited-time-only accessories at Target.
The Felix Rey for Target collection will be available at most Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com March 29 through June 14, 2009.
Felix Rey handbags have become a staple on the arms of celebrities, editors and industry insiders alike. Now, stylish women across the country can experience these affordable vibrant designs with the exclusive Felix Rey for Target collection. “Our collection offers whimsical and classic handbags for the fashion forward with a discerning eye,” says Band. “We were so excited to design a value-priced beach-inspired collection for Target!” says Zarrouk. “Our line combines form and functionality, and will take women from the boardroom to the beach in style.”
Inspired by the beach, the Felix Rey for Target collection includes clutches, totes and oversized bucket bags in lightweight canvas and straw, all perfect additions for a summer ensemble or day by the seaside. Gold hardware including shell detailing, studs and toggles, as well as patent and metallic trim add a sophisticated touch to the fanciful collection. Oversized ric-rac prints mimic the ocean, while sequin fish appliqués and coral raffia embroidery add sparkle and color.
The Felix Rey for Target collection ranges in price from $19.99 to $49.99, in comparison to their high-end line which can cost as much as $800.
