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

The Miche Bag

Posted on by daneen in Handbags | Leave a comment

miche+bag The Miche BagAs you know, I’m a handbag fiend. Despite the fact that this site is (technically) a beauty blog, I spend a good amount of time introducing you to some pretty purses. But I’m an equal opportunity blogger, which is why I feel compelled to also address one of the fuglier purses I’ve seen in a while: the Miche Bag.

Have you seen this thing? The Miche Bag has interchangeable covers that attach with industrial-strength magnets, so you can change the look of your bag to match your tacky-ass outfit.

I’ll give it to the creators…it’s a creative idea. It’s just a shame that the final product looks so cheap. I mean, the pleather appears to be so bargain basement that I could imagine, if your bag got dirty, you’d just wipe it down with some Windex and be on your way. And you know if it looks bad on TV, it’s gonna look a hot mess when it’s all up in your grill.

If you’re looking for a bag that offers more than just one look, might I suggest Gwen Versatile Handbags? Gwen purses transform with multiple looks, textures, and styles. Hailed as must-haves by celebrities (Oprah digs them), Gwen handbags give their wearer the ability to create her own style.

I own a gray and silver Gwen clutch that was created exclusively for Avon (not the one seen above), and I luvre it.

Abaco Sale at Ideeli: Get On This!

Posted on by daneen in Discounts, Fashion, Handbags, Jewelry, Sale | Leave a comment

abaco+maxim+handbag Abaco Sale at Ideeli: Get On This!

Last year, I bought this gorgeous Abaco bag at Ideeli.com…and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The modern design is extremely versatile; I can dress it up or down. And the leather is buttery soft. Every time I carry it, friends compliment the bag and strangers stop me on the street. In fact, a few weeks ago, some crazy lady on the bus started petting it while she raved about the style and color (you know I promptly changed my seat).

Abaco is a Parisian label, and is very hard to come by here in the states. So when people ask me how they can get their hands on one of their bags, I’m always at a loss for words. I just received word that Ideeli is hosting another Abaco sample sale, so I couldn’t wait to share the news with my girls.

abaco+octopus+handbag Abaco Sale at Ideeli: Get On This!

Abaco Sale
Sale starts Monday, May 18
Prices start at $69 (save up to 77%)
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.

Here’s a sampling of Ideeli’s other sample sales this week:

In Matthews’ world, all that glitters really is gold, so join the glitterati and stock up on Tracy Matthews Designs.

Today, traditional craftsmanship and clean lines remain marks of the house as Furla unfurls Italian elegance on us all.
