First Lady Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

Monday, March 2nd, 2009 | General, Photos | 1 Comment

Meilily: Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

Meilily: Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

The March 2009 issue of Vogue Magazine features an historic and inspirational cover photograph of First Lady Michelle Obama, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.  Looking relaxed, confident and real in the cover photograph, Michelle Obama is poised and calm in repose, wearing a beautiful magenta silk dress by Jason Wu.

It just might be true that Michelle Obama really is “the First Lady the world’s been waiting for” as Vogue Magazine has dubbed her.  Michelle Obama, who can pull off wearing both designer fashions as well as off-the-rack clothing from J. Crew and White House | Black Market, does not come across as stiff or guarded as First Ladies sometimes can.  We just can’t seem to get enough of First Lady Michelle Obama’s reachable style and down-to-earth presence.

Moreover, if the Michelle Obama March Vogue cover is any indication, this spring we are in for a treat, recession or not.  I expect that magentas, fuscias, and wines will be fashionable shades for spring, and that Taiwanese designer Jason Wu, › Continue reading

Vincent Longo Makeup 30% Off at Sephora!

Monday, December 8th, 2008 | General, Makeup, Sales, Stores | Comments Off on Vincent Longo Makeup 30% Off at Sephora!

I remember back when Sephora started phasing out one of my favorite cosmetics brands, Becca.  Sephora placed Becca products on sale at a great discount until they all sold out and disappeared forever from Sephora shelves.

Now, Sephora is similarly phasing out the Vincent Longo makeup line, and Vincent Longo products are currently on sale for 30% off, both in-store and online at sephora.com.

Vincent Longo products range from innovative creme-to-powder products with patented technology (Water Canvas line) to gel-stain lip and cheek tints.  The line even includes some sparkly (Wet Diamond) eye shadows for evenings out.

Even at 30% off, Vincent Longo products may not be cheap by any standards, but some products are starting to sell out already.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

(By the way, if Sephora doesn’t have what you’re looking for, VincentLongo.com is offering 25% off orders over $75 until Dec. 24, 2008)

Good news!  The Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Friends & Family sale I posted about has just been extended for 1 more day!  (I know – Why extend it for just one day when you could extend it for a week?)

The Bobbi Brown Friends & Family code BFF08A is now good until midnight ET on December 4, 2008.

It’s good for 20% off any online order of Bobbi Brown products, with free shipping and free samples.
