Oh dear!

June 30th, 2009

This just showed up in my inbox this morning. I thought it was too silly so I had to share.

“Paris Hilton was recently spotted outside of Newark Airport wearing Niki Biki’s Seamless Denim Leggings in Blue.
Knit from nylon, cotton and spandex, the super comfy and stretchy faux denim leggings are sure to be a popular wardrobe staple this fall and winter.”

Boy, I don’t think we need any more encouragement for people to wear leggings as pants! Even if they look like fake jeans! Full disclosure: I actually have 2 pairs of demin-looking leggings that I bought on eBay last year (you might find them this blog if you searched). But I never wore them as pants. Mostly under dresses and boots in the winter because they were thicker and warmer and looked different from other leggings. Never ever wear them as pants!

Niki Biki Seamless Denim Legging in Blue, Black and Charcoal are available at www.RepeatPossessions.com for $33 if you are so inclined to purchase one.

A good haul

June 25th, 2009

Phew, it’s funny how much a mad dash it is always like shopping on Gilt. I was clicking like a mad woman and ordered a bunch of things there a minute ago. It’s probably the pregnancy hormones that made me do it. Here’s what I got.

Ever since I tried some DDF Skincare samples a while ago, I’ve been dying to get my hands on some of their anti-aging serums, lotions and sunscreens. Their products are incredibly gentle having lots of organic ingredients and highly effective. So I had to take advantage of this.
decelerate-professional-anti-aging-kit Decelerate Professional Anti-Aging Kit $75 $37

organic-sunscreen-spf30-lip-treatment Organic Sunscreen SPF30 & Lip Treatment $51 $22

basic-duo-cleanser-moisturizing-dew Basic Duo: Cleanser & Moisturizing Dew $72 $32

matte-finish-sunscreen-spf30 Matte Finish Sunscreen SPF30 $32 $16

And I’ve been wanting an exotic-looking bracelet lately, as soon as I saw this Amrita Singh Reina Flligree bangle, I thought it was just what I wanted! The 18K gold plated brass hinge cuff with filigree details is just gorgeous.


I made myself stop here. But there are lots of other sales going on right now. Some really really cute Marc by Marc Jacobs dresses! Arrrrgh I can’t fit into any of those right now. And Rachel Leigh jewelry…those are to die for. Go check out all the sales! If you haven’t joined Gilt.com, click to sign up.
