For two years, I coveted this Jennifer Behr Rope Knotted Headwrap. But its $150+ price tag prevented me from making dream to reality.

It’s the Muri Headband by Amrita Singh. I snatched it up – two, actually (gold and red) – and I’ve received so many compliments! I wanted to tell you all, but the sale ended before I got the chance to share the deets. (more…)

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!

(Don’t) Burn, Baby, Burn!

A recent conversation about the importance of sun protection with my coworker got me thinking about my favorite products. First I should say that I am an American Cancer Society alum. Working there gave me a generally heightened awareness of the importance of sunscreen. However, it was my father in law’s skin cancer diagnosis last summer that really made me a passionate advocate for taking care of your body’s armor. (more…)

Pretty in Pink: LOFT Collarless Canvas Tuxedo Jacket

loft blazer Pretty in Pink: LOFT Collarless Canvas Tuxedo Jacket

Yesterday, I paid my a visit to my local LOFT, looking for a must-have pink blazer I spotted in the current issue of People StyleWatch (my style bible/guilty pleasure). But when I started searching the store, the jacket eluded me – even after I combed the racks several times over. I did spot two, however – only they weren’t for sale. Two of the saleswomen were rocking the blazer and it was like the fashion gods were taunting me.
