Red Flower soap sale

Red Flower is having a soap sale! So far I have only tried their Hammam lemon-coffee-olive scrub, and I LOVE IT. It's not too oily (like Fresh Brown Sugar scrub), gives a good gritty exfoliation, and lightly colors the skin a darker brown (must be the coffee). And we all know that caffeine helps circulation and thus will decrease cellulite (ok, maybe on a micro-level, but I'll take anything).

I have not tried the soaps myself, but I do like their scents, and along with their cute soap dishes, could make for good hostess, b/day, or Xmas presents. They'll be priced at $6 each or $5 for $25. They also will mail out orders via email or phone.

Classic scents available: North American Lilac, Thai Honeysuckle, Egyptian Chamomile, Chinese Marigold, African Lily, Moroccan Rose, Japanese Peony, French Lavender, Indian Jasmine

What: Red Flower Summer Soap Sale

Cynthia Vincent for Target shoes

I recently ordered these Cynthia Vincent for Target shoes online for $20.99, and they are now $14.98. Why am I telling you this? Because these shoes are awesome. They are super cute, comfortable, and cheap!!! They aren't real leather, but unless you look REALLY close, there's no way to tell. The bottoms are rubber, which is kind of a giveaway that they're not real designer shoes, but this meant I could wear them on a slightly rainy night and not feel guilty at all. If you need a pair of if-it-rains heels, I highly recommend these!

Update on BR pants!

For those interested, this is my follow-up post to my original BR pants quandary.

I did keep the 2Ps, which fit like a glove right out of the box. After wearing them to lunch and one day in the office, they have sufficiently stretched out that I don't feel at all self-conscious about tightness across my bum. It's actually got a lot of give now! SO, lesson learned: if it fits like a glove out of the box, it'll be good by dinnertime :) And with these sales-on-sales, I stocked up on pants at $33-40 a pop!

[I feel like this crazy discounting is seriously diminishing their brand image. Am I just out of the loop and BR is no longer aiming to be a competitor to J.Crew / Club Monaco?]

Barney's WTH email

I guess I will end this busy week with some Friday hate. Today Barney's email subscribers got a totally random one proclaiming that 'Cle de Peau cream is now online!'. Now, being an avid beauty consumer, a few thoughts popped into my head: 1) This is not even CdP's 'new hotness' Synactif line, 2) Saks and BG have sold CdP online for FOREVER, and 3) beauty totally sucks because they never keep a decent inventory! (I buy all my beauty online at Saks, NM, BG, or Sephora).

So my immediate thought was, LAME! And then I went to have pizza at Keste. Happy Friday!!

Banana Republic 30% off pants

Update: Question to girls who wear BR pants/trousers:

How much do they stretch?

Sorry I am co-opting my blog for my personal purposes :D but as I said earlier, I ordered in 2 different sizes to see what fit. The 4P fits, is only slightly loose, and the 2P fits, is only slightly close-fitting (they are not lined so you can notice an undy line when not wearing the right ones). In the reviews, a lot of women are saying the pants stretch out with wear. Is this true? I don't want to keep the 4P if it will stretch out, but I don't want to keep the 2P if it will stay forever tight on the bum. Any advice would be much appreciated!

And, my opinion on the quality: normally I slowly accumulate pants from online sales, YOOX, or Barney's Warehouse Sale, but I am in a real jam with nothing that fits! Banana Republic was what I wore in high school, and it seems to have caught on like wildfire, so it seemed a natural go-to. The quality of the pants is ok. Like I said earlier, they arent' lined, but the fabric isn't super flimsy so it's kind of ok. I wouldn't pay full retail for these-- I think $50 is about my max on these. I also got Petite because they are 30" inseams, and I just don't think BR pants are worth the additional $12 to hem at my dry cleaners. The Petite versions are slightly smaller than regular sizes, but I found it fits me really well. The waist-to-hip ratio is just right. I think these will be great day-to-day work pants. FYI - I also got a couple no-iron shirts to try on. Scratchy! Definitely will be returned. Now to figure out which size pants to keep...

I am in dire need of new work pants since shrinking, so I just ordered a ton from Select styles are 30% off, and you can use code "BRSAVE25" to take an additional 25% off, which made most of the pants $40.87! I got 3 pairs each in sizes 2P and 4P, so I hope at least one set fits!

The 30% off pants ends tomorrow, Sunday, Jul 11, but the 25% off code works through Tuesday, Jul 13.

Fun find: the perfect emergency nail polish

Disclaimer: not about fashion.

Like every good New York gal, I get my hair cut and highlighted every 8 weeks, my waxing done every 4 weeks, a pedicure every 2 weeks, and a manicure every week. It's very time-consuming to maintain all that beauty upkeep AND go to the gym AND go out AND have a full-time job (AND blog!)!!

Sometimes I find myself going to a nice restaurant or social event with no time for a fresh manicure. I know there are more important things in life to worry about, but this gets me pretty neurotic. Enter my new-found saving grace: Chanel nail polish in Ballerina. (Yes, I know it's been out for years now. I am that behind the times.)
It's the perfect invisible nail polish. Your nails look natural, but somehow way, way better than natural. And I only do a single coat, so there's no streaking or freaking out that one half of my nail is darker than the other half. (Which often happens because my left hand seems to be unable to color between the lines)

So, here's my new way of cheating:
1. 1 coat of base coat (I use Gelous from Sally Beauty supply because my nails are brittle and it goes on very evenly)
2. 1 coat of Chanel Ballerina nail polish
3. 1 coat of top coat (I prefer Seche Vite because it dries so fast!)
4. Go around the cuticles with Dr. Hauschka Neem nail oil pen which my friend Kelly got me addicted to!
5. Hand lotion

VoilĂ ! You'll have a very adequate manicure in about 20 minutes, and it will last for at least 5 days, which buys you plenty of time to get to the nail salon.

Some Carlos Falchi on clearance at Off 5th San Antonio

My awesome go-to SA at the Off 5th in San Antonio (where they get some pretty nice stuff) just sent me an email with some Carlos Falchi bags they just put on clearance! The large navy (looks like python) was $1429 and is now $714.50, and the smaller bags are $429 and now $214.5. I didn't ask about the big green tote, but I'm sure he'd be happy to take your call if you are interested. The store # is 210-641-8299 and his name is Aaron! Tell him Tina referred you, and he will take great care of you :)

Gilt City $100 of Madame Paulette dry cleaning for $50

I have always wanted to use Madame Paulette for my regular dry cleaning, but I thought it was too much of a hassle to make the trip from the West Village. Turns out they deliver!

Right now you can buy a gift certificate for $100 worth of dry cleaning for $50 on Gilt City. Each person can buy a lot, but can only use one. My past experience with Madame Paulette is limited to my wedding gown cleaning... I wore it on one of the very rare days of Sonoran Desert rain, so the hem is slightly muddied, and I also walked down an aisle covered in red rose petals. Bottom line-- it was kind of filthy. The top is a strong corset bodice which can't really be smushed in any way. So after we got back to NYC I sent to dress off to Madame Paulette's for cleaning and preservation. $800 later (yowza!), it looks pretty darn good. So good I could (and kind of want to) sell it.

So cheap it is not, but I've been loathe to send my more expensive Derek Lam and Rachel Roy dresses to my regular cleaner, so this is perfect!

BluePrintCleanse 15% off

I can honestly say I love BluePrintCleanse . My husband thinks it's bizarre (and he would never do it) but I view it as 3 days of great nutrition. It really is a great way to 'detox' your body! If you're a fan, or interested in trying, they are doing 15% off until tomorrow midnight (Wednesday, Jul 7th) with code "LocalColor". (PS - If you're on the fence: I talked my coworker into trying it 2 months ago, and she was really apprehensive, but she turned out to love it too! Don't be scared :D )
