Smitten Saturday

Valley of the Troubadour’s…because merely sitting by and fawning over Sharon Tate’s breathtaking wardrobe in Valley of the Dolls from afar is simply not in the cards for the fashionable femme fatale; rather, she is a take-charge kind of gal who goes out there and mimics the style for her very own uses – and there is no better place to start than Troubadour. From the magnificent Minetta Dress, which sports Juliet Capulet-like billowing sleeves crafted out of chiffon, to The Bank Trench, which allows the wearer to snap the bell sleeves up or down – depending on their present mood; channeling your inner old-school Hollywood starlet has never been easier! What Troubadour piece will you use to display your Doll-esque persona, darlings?

Superfudge!…because behind every chic, classy, saucy sophisticate is a glamazon who likes to accouter herself in DKNY’s Pure DKNY Turtleneck Sweater Dress, and spend her evenings curled up on the living room couch accompanied by something sweet, savory, and, above all, simple. Spoonfudge! is precisely that. Select your flavor of choice – I’m partial to Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Marshmallow, and Chocolate Caramel myself – unscrew the top of the jar and dig in! Which fudgey flavor are you coveting, kittens?

Undercover Kisser…because a personalized pout isn’t something seen solely upon the luscious lips of celebutantes and socialites with enough spare change to surround themselves with a team of artistes to take them from drab to fab in zero to sixty; a look that is yours and only yours is achievable for even the frugalist fashionista, courtesy of DuWop’s Private Collection. Available in Private Nude, Private Plum, and Private Red; the color-changing lip lacquer morphs into the ideal shade for the wearer. Simply slick on, wait five minutes, and see your personalized hue appear. It’s like a mood ring for one’s pretty pout. Ready to go undercover, lovers?

Planned to Perfection…because a true glamourai knows that, as much as we’d love for everything to fall perfectly into place without much effort on our part when it comes to weddings, so is very rarely the case. Such an event requires uncovering the ideal location, the perfect décor, and the most delectable desserts; not to mention entertainment, photographers, honeymoon selections, and, above all else, a sublime gown that will render everyone – from the guests to the groom – speechless. All of which, while thrilling, can give one the run-around; unless they’re using Wedding Salon. A one-stop shop of sorts; Wedding Salon allows one entry into a world where all of your Wedding Events needs and desires can be fulfilled – from introductions to wedding planners the world over, and portfolios from Wedding Vendors of all kinds, including photographers and DJ’s; to ideas for exotic honeymoons, and advice from celebrity wedding planners. Wedding Salon ensures that one’s special day goes off without a hitch. Now tell me lovers, what are you waiting for?

Think Pink!…because even the glamorous find themselves facing less-than-fabulous situations at times; now you can help to fight such daunting predicaments – and possibly add a magnifique new Pink Mother of Pearl Necklace to your blissfully overflowing jewelry drawer at the very same time! enV by Vanessa Coppes and Bamboo Salon have teamed up to spread knowledge about breast cancer awareness to stunning stylistas like yourselves, via a raffle wherein all proceeds benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Purchase a ticket for $5.00, help the cause, and keep your China Glaze Branding Iron-lacquered fingers crossed that the bauble in question will somehow find its way to your doorstep. Admit it lovers; doing good has never been so simple!

What were you smitten with this week?


Fashionably yours!

SUPER FUDGE. GAHHHH. My stomach is literally rumbling at the thought. Slash I haven't eaten in quite awhile, so that could also be accounted for the grumbling... But, nonetheless!

It's true--the Minetta dress is gorgeous. Oh, that sweet color and those sleeves! If only it didn't cost an arm and a leg, it would be perfect for the wedding I'm going to on the California coast next weekend! :(
