If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

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

Abaco Handbag Sale at Ideeli!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Handbags, Sale | 1 Comment

abaco+princess+handbag Abaco Handbag Sale at Ideeli!!!!!!!!!!!!
Remember that delish Abaco handbag I scored on Ideeli.com last summer? Well, now you can stop drinking the haterade and get one yourself – because Ideeli is having another Abaco handbag sale!!!

Abaco offers roomy handbags without the fuss. Following a true “joie de vivre” philosophy, this Parisian label unites vintage charm with modern practicality, creating a new twist on classic feminine style. Backed by extensive experience as a makeup artist, designer Raquel Achache crafts bags from supple leathers in indefinite colors (such as blue-gray). Because these subtler shades are also harder to find, she works directly with her factories to develop these custom colors, giving Abaco Laguna bags a distinct, sophisticated look. Pair this color palette with perfectly slouched silhouettes and the results manage to feel both new and familiar.

Abaco handbags aren’t easy to come by – and you’ll never find them at the ridiculously affordable prices offered by Ideeli. I’m thinking of buying another one… though I’ve amassed such a collection of purses, Mr. Spoiled Pretty might blow a gasket. Maybe we’ll keep it a secret?

Ideeli’s Surprise Gucci Sale – Friday, January 30th!

gucci Ideeli’s Surprise Gucci Sale   Friday, January 30th!
From the ’30s to the ’80s, Gucci built a reputation for craftsmanship, innovation and, above all, style. Fashion icons from Jackie Kennedy to Elizabeth Taylor to Princess Diana draped themselves in printed scarves, bamboo-trimmed bags and interlocking double G logos. In 1994, when actor-turned-designer “it” boy Tom Ford took the reins as Gucci’s Creative Director, he turned up the heat with styles that radiated pure, unbridled sex appeal. The sleek-yet-feminine styling creates handbags that are decidedly hot but don’t lose their cool, which is perhaps the sexiest combination of all.

Prices start as $135
Save up to 43%

Krina Handbag Giveaway Winner Writes Back

 Krina Handbag Giveaway Winner Writes Back
Melissa, winner of the Krina Handbag Giveaway, recently emailed me to rave about her prize…

My pic doesn’t do it justice….It’s a gorgeous bag and the leather is like buttah! It holds all my necessities with room to spare, and I bring EVERYTHING with me. All the little touches Krina put into this bag are nice – all the tassels are leather, including on the zippered compartment inside and the straps are long and sturdy enough to make carrying the bag comfortable. I also like that the lining is a pretty champagne color (not black), so I can find my things in it. Thanks again to Krina and Daneen of Spoiled Pretty for this incredible giveaway!

Sincerely,
Melissa “Misha” M.

You can be a winner too. Don’t forget to enter this week’s giveaway – you could win FOUR pairs of sandals from Havaianas’ 2009 collection!

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.
