Yesterday my sister and I headed down to my favorite section of the city! As a former lingerie model, I love going to showrooms to see a number of undergarments. After getting to Hanes Showroom, we made our way to the Barely There presentation. I love the fact that this brand is all about seamless underwear - seeing lines is uber tacky but I also love the comfort that it provides when you're just wearing it around your home, running errands or when you're traveling! In addition to previewing new items from the collection, I loved that we met Christina and Kim Scali (as well as their fab mom) from the hit show Jersey Couture on Oxygen Network (currently filming their second season now) - they also have a fabulous boutique in Freehold, NJ - Diane and Co.
I loved seeing the full collection from shapewear, to push ups, comfy items and so much more. There are a number of fun hues and colors and seeing Kim and Christina walk us through the line and talk about their experiences as well as fitting women in their boutique was definitely a nice add in to the event. Once we left the event, we had a phenomenal series of bras, panties and shapewear as well as a very nice gift certificate from Macy's. Above are images from the presentation, the fabulous sisters (as well as a peek into their new accessory line that they received literally the day before), models rocking the line, their fab mom who looked fabulous and a quick pick of all my goodies! I'm personally obsessed with the t-shirt bras whether they have foam or don't have foam in them. Because they are so soft, you can also take the straps down, make them a one shoulder and so much more - fab!
Begining today (yes this very second), you can win one of two $500 gift certificates from Inhabit! Now you know that I fell in love with them during Fashion Week last Sept. I love the fabrics and how they are amazing to layer and to wear in a number of ways! From now through Feb 27th, you will automatically be entered to win these certificates! All you have to do is visit Inhabit and purchase items that are non sale! Definitely take a look at the site and you could win an amazing infusion to your wardrobe!
This holiday season you have to think smart. I don't think there is anyone that can believe that it's the holiday season or the end of the year! Whether you're time crunched, funds light or anything else, you have to think about looking great and/or how you will gift for others. On my list I have people that I've known for ages, family, colleauges, etc. But then I know that you hit those situations where a gift is needed but I may not be as familiar as I would prefer. I really don't care for giving gift certificates as I feel it's a quick way out of a purchase that should take some thought (not to say that I haven't used it). I like the gift set because it gives variety. The person may not like everyting that's in there but they stand a chance of like something and they can always give portions of it away! It's a gift that keeps on giving. All of these sets are under $30 and are perfect for stocking stuffers, Secret Santas and more! As you know if you have been reading the Holiday Gift Guide, I am obsessed with Velvet Rope by Urban Decay. I will never wear another brand of eyeliner without a doubt! I think that Dylan's Candy definitely did the fab jump from candy to embracing a beauty line! Gloss is always a nice option and this Lancome line spices it up with the fishnet theme and when it comes to my eyes, I love multiple shades of eyeshadow! Not only can you give love to others but this doesn't stop you from snagging some great finds. Check out what Sephora has to offer whether you do so at your local shop or online!
