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

LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Fashion, Giveaway, Holiday | Leave a comment

loft+sequin+tank LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!Holiday time is my favorite time of the year. I love scurrying from store to store, playing Santa and getting the must-haves on everyone’s list. I’m a present-wrapping superstar; if there were levels, I’d be a third degree black belt. And the holiday specials at Starbucks (Caramel Brulee Latte, Eggnogg Latte and Peppermint Mocha are my faves!) make the season even sweeter.

But throwing together last-minute ensembles for holiday shindigs? That’s when my inner Scrooge comes out. Here’s the problem – and you can probably relate. You hate everything in your closet; it either doesn’t fit properly, or it’s not festive enough for the party’s dress code. On the other hand, there’s a recession going on and you can’t justify buying an entire outfit for one holiday get-together. Makes you wanna say “bah humbug” and just RSVP with regrets.

Luckily, LOFT is here to rescue you from holiday fashion disaster.

loft+holiday LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!In case you haven’t heard, Ann Taylor Loft is now LOFT. They’ve re-named and re-branded the company, and upped the style ante. And one of the many great things about LOFT that I love is that they’ve got petites! Can I get a hallelujah, shorties?

Anyway, LOFT has some amazing pieces that you can pair with something already in your closet – to create a chic, festive outfit without breaking the bank. For example, pair this Sequin Sparkle Tank with a pair of jean or black pants and layer a blazer or cardigan on top. This Sequin Scarf is only $29.50 and will jazz up just about anything in your wardrobe. What about that go-to little black dress your friends have seen you wear countless times? Take that dress from wah-wah-wah to wow with one of LOFT’s statement necklaces. My favorite is the Clear Gem Bib Necklace with Black Chain – I can think of 10 “new” outfits I could create with this accessory alone!

To celebrate their new name and image, LOFT is having a contest called Blog Wars. Starting today at 4pm, visit LOFT’s Facebook fan page (here’s the link to the actual poll), and vote for your favorite blog (hint: your favorite blog is Spoiled Pretty). On Friday afternoon, the blogger with the most votes wins a $500 LOFT gift card. Child, you know mama loves to shop…so help me out here!

To get you motivated, I’m doing a giveaway too! Go to LOFT’s website and find a festive holiday item. Then come back here and tell me (in the comments) how you’d pair that item with something already in your closet to create a holiday party ensemble. On Friday evening, I’ll award one of the commenters with a $100 LOFT gift card!

Okay, so remember to become a Facebook Fan of LOFT…then vote for Spoiled Pretty. Tell your friends to do the same. It’s war, people…and I came to win. Help a blogger, won’t cha?

This Is Not One Of My Favorite Things

Posted on by daneen in Eye Shadow, Holiday | 9 Comments

winter skies1 This Is Not One Of My Favorite Things
Long before Oprah was making studio audiences squeal over Josh Groban CD’s and $4,000 refrigerators with TV’s on the door, my girl Fraulein Maria had a song about her favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

coloron+tinsel+kit This Is Not One Of My Favorite Things
I’m pretty sure ColorOn EyeEnvy – Tinsel Kit wasn’t quite what the perky postulant had in mind.

I don’t know why anyone would actually spend $17 on this, but let’s say you do…when the dog bites and the bee stings and you’re feeling sad, thank your lucky stars that you didn’t pay full-price ($25) for this hot mess…and then you won’t feel so bad.
