Never Heard of Ideeli? Shut Your Mouth!

abaco+laguna Never Heard of Ideeli? Shut Your Mouth!
What is the site,
For luxury items at a pauper’s price?
Damn right.

You see, that Ideeli is a bad mother-
(Shut your mouth.)
But I’m talkin’ ’bout Ideeli!
(Then we can dig it.)

What do you mean, you’ve never heard of Ideeli? Child, you and me needs to have a little chat.

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.

Ideeli is an invitation only website…so if you’re interested in a membership (it’s free), give me a shout-out and I’ll hook you up. Happy shopping!

 Isabella Fiore: First Ever Sample Sale, November 19 & 20!!!
Isabella Fiore, one of Spoiled Pretty’s fave handbag designers, is all growns up…

On November 19th and 20th, they’re hosting their first ever sample sale. If you’re in NYC, mark your calendars…this is your chance to score some great clutches, handbags and small leather goods at 50%-70% off retail prices!

Alas, I’m in Philly and won’t be able to rightfully celebrate this momentous occasion. So if you’re in the area, please stop by so a certain beauty blogger can live vicarously. Even better…if you spy the ‘Puff Enough’ Austin Frame handbag (above), snatch that sucker up and think of me when you tote it around, lookin’ all cute. I mean, what’s more GORGE than this bag? Nothing.

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.

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.
