Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes Sisters

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

magnes+sisters+bags Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes SistersAs a handbag buff, I was beside myself when I was offered the opportunity to interview Dina, Yael, and Tamar Magnes – the sister act behind Magnes Sisters, a line of fashion forward handbags. Read on for my Q&A with this talented trio. Spoiled Pretty is taking you behind the bag…welcome to the Magnes family!

SP: How did your handbag line come about?
MS:
When we were growing up in Israel, our Grandmother prophesied the careers of each sister – one would design clothing, the second, jewelry, and the third would be a graphic designer. Many years later, we moved to New York together to follow those dreams and collaborate on a handbag line that would use all of our skills. The rest is history!

SP: What was the hardest part about breaking into the industry?
MS:
Breaking in takes a lot of persistence and the drive to keep going. Slowly, by slowly you realize that people are starting to recognize the product and this is what makes it so rewarding.

SP: How would you describe your design aesthetic?

MS:
Our design aesthetic can be summed up by New York City, clean design, and modern vintage!

magnes+sisters+dry+martini Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes Sisters

SP: What inspires your designs?
MS:
The collection is inspired by several factors in our lives – first of all, grandmothers! Our own grandmother had a huge impact on our lives, and was the reason we chose to collaborate. She also had fabulous fashion sense! We loved her vintage style and family has always been very important in our work as well. Secondly, we are constantly being inspired by our home, New York City. Our bags have a very urban design aesthetic, and we are always committed to making every bag functional. They are truly designed for the modern woman on the go and we like to think of them as city chic!

SP: What is your favorite Magnes Sisters handbag to date?
Dina:
My favorite would have to be the Gallery from our classic collection.
Yael:
I’m personally a fan of the new Dancing in the Streets for fall.
Tamar:
I love the I Love Bag from our new fall 09 collection!

SP: How do you come up with the names for your bags?
MS:
There are so many places where you have to be conservative in this industry, this is a fun part! Names are all part of a family of bags and we never use the names of girls. We consider, where you would wear the bags, how are they going to be used, and what will you need to put in them.

maybelline+great+lash+mascara Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes SistersSP: If I were to search your handbags, what beauty products would I find?
Dina:
Kiehl’s hand cream – I’m a Kiehl’s girl!
Yael:
Sunscreen – SPF 35, Maybelline mascara, Mario Badescu hand cream.
Tamar:
None! I put it all on at home but in my makeup bag there I have a bunch Ricky’s and MAC, Maybelline mascara, MAC bronzer, MAC lip gloss.

SP: Are there other handbag designers that you like to wear?
Dina:
Marni and Chanel.
Yael:
Rachel Nasvik and Chanel.
amar: Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Chanel.

SP: Who do you envision wearing your bags? What kind of woman is your typical customer?
MS: Definitely a city girl – we always design with chic, modern, working women in mind. The bags are always multi-functional and stylish enough for her to be seen out and about in!

SP: Which celebrity would you love to have wear one of your bags that hasn’t yet?
Dina: Chloe Sevigny, definitely.
Yael:
Michelle Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Tamar:
Katie Holmes, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Liv Tyler.

SP: Does the fact that you’re sisters make it easier or harder to work together?
Dina: It can be a little difficult because we are all so very passionate about the collection and know each other so well.
Yael:
We know each other completely, so there are lots of times when we have fun creating things together, from baking cookies, to planning a party – and we always have had that relationship.
Tamar:
Easier on one hand because we trust each other completely!

SP: Do you have plans to expand your line beyond handbags?
MS: Yes – we want to do paper products eventually, similar to Kate Spade’s line, as well as jewelry, jackets, and many more!

SP: What’s next for Magnes Sisters?
MS:
We want to continue growing, so your readers should get ready to see the Magnes Sisters brand in larger stores! We want to always be having fun, no matter what the future holds for us.

Spoiled Pretty Street Style: Dayna In Philadelphia

Posted on by daneen in Blush, Bronzer, Celebrities, Cleanser, Fashion, Handbags, Jewelry, Lashes, Lipgloss, Mascara, Philadelphia, Shoes | Leave a comment

 Spoiled Pretty Street Style: Dayna In PhiladelphiaBecause I know how much you love themed posts, like Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week and my celebrity articles, I’m adding another one to the roster…

Welcome to Spoiled Pretty Street Style – a new column that shines a spotlight on fashion and beauty trends, and how they’re being interpreted in your neck of the woods.

For the inaugural post, I’m spotlighting Dayna, an impossibly chic Philadelphia lawyer.

In the photo, Dayna is rocking: a Black Halo dress, J. Crew cardigan, Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Heidi Klum earrings, Lagos ring, David Yurman and Charriol bracelets, Louis Vuitton handbag, and Boutique 9 sandals.

SP: What are your top five beauty products for summer?
Dayna: Darphin Cleansing Foam Gel, NARS Bronzing Powder, NARS Blush in Orgasm, Diorshow Black Out Mascara, and Chanel Aqualumiere Lip Gloss in #72 (Bubble Plum)

SP: Are there any celebrities whose style you admire?
Dayna: Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth, Lauren Conrad, Diane Kruger, and Nicole Richie

SP: What items are you currently coveting?
Dayna: Burberry trench coat and Gucci sandals. Oh, and a Chloe Paddington bag. I just don’t think I should be living without it.

SP: What is your #1 beauty tip?
Dayna: Use a heated eyelash curler. They make a travel one at Sephora. It’s amazing.

Want to be featured in Street Style? Take a photo of yourself or someone you know, stylin‘ and profilin‘…with a breakdown of the fashion and beauty products pictured. Then send it to my inbox. If you’re chosen, I’ll feature the look on Spoiled Pretty – and I’ll send you a beauty goodie for your troubles!
