If you haven’t become a Rue La La addict yet, it’s bound to happen soon. Rue La La is the online shopping site for people who love famous brands, star-style and the magic of discovering a great deal. For those of you who know me, you know that I am the girl that manages to find the $750 bag for $99 at TJ Maxx. (Ah, the perils of my stylish eye.) Rue La La is the ultimate destination because of their fabulous prices, great brands and their ability to get you to act..fast. You see, a “boutique” will open for say 48 hours. The countdown begins. Love that ToyWatch? Better scoop it up or it will be gone in seconds. Want those Prada boots? Fuggedabout it. Gone in minutes.
As if that all isn’t enough, Rue La La gives members a $10 credit for inviting other members to join. Great way to incentivize people to do their marketing. Want to join? Here’s my referral link. Pay it forward, baby.
L.A.M.B. "Zada" Nude & Forrest Leather Sandal
Now, on to the ooh la la. For the next 2 hours, you’ll find one of my favorite fabulous and stylish brand on Rue La La. L.A.M.B. Who can resist the most stylish, Gwen Stefani, and her L.A.M.B line of shoes? These coveted, funky, sexy kicks get better and better each season but typically run over $350 (thus my coveting them). Until noonET today, on Rue La La, they are over 50% off. Yes, my dear fashionista, you can now make Gwen proud by strutting your stuff in your deal of the century.
My only word of caution with Rue La La? Don’t fall prey to “I’ll come back later”. I have done this before and would peruse Rue La La, look around, put a few things in my bag and…come back later only to find out that they were gone. If you love it, buy it. Don’t wait only to miss out on a terrific deal. They have a 30 day return for merchandise credit for pretty much all items. Go get yourself some ooh la la today!
It’s winter here in New England, in case you haven’t noticed. That means bye-bye bare legs and hello bundle up. I did see a girl walking down the street in the North End today wearing a skirt and Uggs. Um, yeah, that’s nuts when it’s 22 degrees out. So, in my effort to be stylish and warm, I have been on the hunt for cool legwear. I’m not talking your average tights from the bargain bin. I’m talking funky designs, luxurious fabrics and no-tear wearability.
I am proud to tell you, my fellow style maven, I have found them and I am addicted.
Wolford Diamond Stripe Tights
Wolford has been around pretty much since the invention of panty hose and quickly took what was becoming mass-market and turned it into a luxury brand. They premiered the Perlon seemless stocking back in 1954 and continued to innovate women’s hosiery through the 60′s with synthetic yarns, to the 70′s ladder-proofing patented process to the 80′s with a partnership with LaPerla and into the 90′s with the launch of beautiful lingerie and swimwear to expand the line. Wolford’s hosiery is absolutely beautiful. They have everything from plain black panty hose to a saucy pair of tights with knee-high boots stiched into the fabric. (Serious sauce!) I just love how they are willing to take a risk with design and give women a fun accessory – for legs. I am digging the Diamond Stripe Net Tights and the Flora cheeta-print tights are just to die for. I will tell you that these beauties come with a price of close to $60 per pair. Yes, I know, my stylista, steep indeed for hosiery. But, I will tell you that in addition to their fabulousness, I read a story about a woman who had her pair of Wolford hose for close to 10 years. I certainly cannot say the same for my bargain bin one-season tights.
Go ahead, bundle up and let those legs be your stylish accessory.
