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

naturalizer boot sale Get Those Naturalizer Boots Already!

Last week, I waxed poetic about Naturalizer boots and shared a 20% off coupon code so that you could affordably adopt a pair (or two).

This week, Naturalizer decided to top themselves by offering 20% off all boots – PLUS an extra 15% off AND free shipping!!!

The Juletta boots (above) were originally priced at $179.99. With the 20% off, they are 143.99. But by entering promo code UWINT29A at checkout, you save another $21 for a grand total of $122.39!

Seriously, what are you waiting for? Be a dear and give some Naturalizer boots a good home.

Naturalizer boots Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly suggest you check out Naturalizer. Yes, Naturalizer.

I know that the brand name evokes old lady, orthapedic-looking shoes, but Naturalizer’s shoe and boots styles are anything but. The designs are classic (with a nod to current trends), versatile and super comfy.

 Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

My beloved Naturalizer Arness Boots

Last winter, I bought a pair of black riding boots and I’ve worn them at least 3 or 4 times a week through the spring. Now that it’s getting colder, they again have become my go-to footwear for fall. They look chic paired with a dress or skirt, and also with skinny jeans or leggings tucked in.

And for those of you with “athletic” calves or who wear a narrow or wide width shoe, you’re in luck because Naturalizer offers all of these options. Personally, I have wide feet and need a wide shaft boot – and I can tell you that it’s damn near impossible to find a cute boot that fits. But Naturalizer sells several.

I’m so happy with my black riding boots that I’m going to buy a brown pair…and my decision comes at the perfect time because they’re having a sale! Now through November 25, 2012, take 20% off your order at Naturalizer.com using promo code UWINT32A.

Naturalizer Juletta Boot Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012

ann taylor kate hudson fall 2012 black bow dress Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012

I’m absolutely obsessed with Ann Taylor’s Fall 2012 collection, which is “inspired by the continental glamour of 1960s Paris.” Last month, I posted about the ad campaign – starring Kate Hudson. The first images definitely had me intrigued. And now that the full collection has been revealed, I must admit that the teasers did not disappoint. I’m loving the black and white, pops of color, animal prints, and the sweet, feminine touches (i.e., lace and bows). It’s like someone at Ann Taylor climbed inside of my brain and created a collection just pour moi.

Here’s what’s on my ultimate wardrobe wish list:

ann taylor kate hudson fall 2012 featured Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012This Tie Back Short Sleeve Sweater ($58) is business in the front, cocktail party in the back.

 

ann taylor kate hudson fall 2012 leopard dress Currently Obsessed: Ann Taylor Fall 2012The White Leopard Ponte Dress ($138) is a must-have. And check out the edgy, exposed zipper on the sleeve. Genius, right? Rock on with your bad self, Kate! CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What’s On My Wish List

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Featured, Nail Polish, Nails, Sale, Shoes | 1 Comment

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:

bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Whats On My Wish Listbebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.

DV by Dolce Vita Folly Bootie Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Whats On My Wish ListDV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.

Hue Denim Leggings Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Whats On My Wish ListHue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx… CONTINUE READING

Cute and Comfy: Sofft Ramona II Pumps

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Featured, Sale, Shoes | 2 Comments

max and cleo pleated dress Cute and Comfy: Sofft Ramona II PumpsA few weeks ago, I posted a pic of this Max & Cleo dress I was planning to wear to a wedding and solicited your advice for complementary shoes. The resounding consensus was that I should jazz it up with a pair of colorful kicks. But while I loved many of your shoe recommendations, my wide, flat feet started to hurt just looking at those stilettos. So I decided to use your suggestions as style inspiration and search for similar heels in a less intimidating height. Unfortunately, 99.9% of the cute heels out there are too narrow for my Flintstone feet, not to mention ridiculously sky high. Seriously, how women can stand in these things, let alone stroll? Inquiring minds want to know.

I went to Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, DSW, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s  – and came up with nada. I was this close to switching the dress – all because I couldn’t find appropriate shoes – until I happened upon the Sofft Ramona II Pump. CONTINUE READING

Help Me Find Shoes to Wear with This Dress!

max and cleo pleated dress Help Me Find Shoes to Wear with This Dress!

Many of you visit Spoiled Pretty for my beauty and fashion advice. But now it’s my turn to solicit style suggestions from you.

In a few weeks, I’m attending a friend’s wedding and this is the dress I’m wearing. It’s by Max & Cleo and I snatched it up for just $25 at Bloomingdale’s this past weekend (it’s originally $143). I concede that the dress doesn’t look like much on the model, but it looks great on me (and hides a multitude of sins) – hurrah! Anyways, I need shoes to complete the ensemble and I’m absolutely perplexed. Should I rock a pair of nude pumps? Or maybe inject a pop of color? I need your help!

To weigh in, leave your two cents in the comments section. Thanks in advance – and I’ll be sure to post what I ultimately pick.

Smooches!
