$153 Pattern LA Dilly Bag and Accessories Giveaway

[ 286 ] October 14, 2014 |

What’s Your Favorite Pattern?

Patten LA Products

Dilly Bag – Ottie Black ($58), Ruby Essentials Case – Fleur Berry ($24), Sydney SmartPhone Case – Fleur Berry ($24), Logo Print TT Essentials Bag Large ($24), 

Recently, I was contacted by Pattern LA to feature their bags. One little peek and I was hooked! Tiffany Lerman (daughter of English novelist, Jackie Collins) is famous in her own right as the designer and owner of Pattern LA. She designs tote bags, accessories and diaper bags for girls, women, moms and grandmas of all ages! Pattern LA offers a vibrant collection of essential tote bags featuring exclusive and delightful textile designs. Pattern embodies a simple, casual and charming look that women of all ages will want to carry with them everywhere – from the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of London!

Pattern LA

 Just check out this fabulous Pattern LA Dilly bag!

Patten LA Dilly Bag

The Dilly Bag ($58) is a great mid-sized bag made of stain resistant matte laminated cotton. With multiple interior and exterior pockets, an attached zippered cosmetic pouch and a contrasting interior lining and modern hardware accents, it can hold anything from a laptop to books to on-the-run essentials. Double handles offer comfort while the slightly-structured silhouette and chic patterns make Dilly ideal for everyday use. Doesn’t this look so much better than those BORING laptop bags?

How about Pattern LA Accessory Bags?

Patten LA Ruby Essentials Case Sydney Smart Phone

Pattern LA carries many accessory bags that can function alone or inside your bag or tote. The Sydney SmartPhone Case ($24) functions as a wristlet or you can stick it in your favorite purse. The best part of the Sydney wristlet? It has a clear pvc window (you can see and use the touch screen through it) and a chain so it can function as a shoulder bag as well. Ruby Essentials Case($24) comes in several color choices. It’s a terrific everyday or travel wallet (can hold checks, a passport, foreign currency, travel docs) and is big enough to hold a Kindle, too! I think that means it will hold my NOTE3 as well.

Pattern LA Clear TT Essentials Bags make totes functional

Patten LA TT Essentials

What I hate the MOST about a tote bag is that all of your stuff gets lost at the bottom! Pattern LA Logo Print TT Essentials Bag Large ($24) and Small ($22) addresses that exact issue! Slip these accessory bags into your tote and keep your items contained, plus you can see through the bag to easily locate what you want!

 

CAN’T WAIT TO WIN a Pattern LA Bag and accessories?

$165 Fashion Books Giveaway: Hats By Madame Paulette, Yves Saint Laurent, William Helburn Seventh and Madison

[ 160 ] October 13, 2014 |

New titles from Thames & Hudson

Thames & HudsonHats by Madame Paulette, Yves Saint Laurent, William Helburn: Seventh and Madison. Book Photos courtesy of Thames & Hudson. 

HATS BY MADAME PAULETTE:

Paris Milliner Extraordinaire ($50.00 hardcover, 9780500517314) highlights the life and work of famed milliner Madame Paulette, whose incomparable creations were worn by such film stars as Greta Garbo and Audrey Hepburn, and such royals as Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duchess of Windsor.

I was sent this book and the others featured here by the publishers Thames & Hudson. The pictures in Hats by Madame Paulette are just stunning. This is not a flip through coffee table book, but  an enjoy-every-picture and spend-a-Sunday-afternoon with it book. I actually delighted in  the sketches as much as the photographs. Madame Paulette created the stunning creations in My Fair Lady! I also didn’t know that no two hats she created were ever alike. When you view her creations, you will surely agree with Karl Lagerfeld, who said of Paulette:

She was the last of a line of artists of this kind. She had something in her fingers, a magic touch…

YVES SAINT LAURENT

YVES SAINT LAURENT ($50.00 hardcover, 9780500517604) is a dazzling portrait of the designer and his world of fashion over the last 25 years of his career by legendary backstage fashion photography pioneer Roxanne Lowit.

I have not received this book yet as it has a release date of Nov. 4, 2014. The subject intrigued me because he defined the 1970s in terms of cool cutting edge fashion. An accomplishment I particularly admired is that he:

He revolutionized women’s evening wear when he introduced le smoking, a woman’s tuxedo, and made couture accessible to a younger generation. ~ From Thames & Hudson website

WILLIAM HELBURN: SEVENTH AND MADISON

WILLIAM HELBURN: SEVENTH AND MADISON ($65.00 hardcover, 9780500517659) captures striking fashion and advertising images by the go-to photographer for many of the top agencies in New York during the 1950s and 60s Advertising Revolution.

I have not yet received this book has a release date of Nov. 11, 2014. The reason I wanted to review it is that ’50s and ’60s advertising was among some of the best this country has ever seen. I am eagerly anticipating viewing Helburn’s body of work.

As well as cars and cosmetics, Helburn shot Coca-Cola, Canada Dry, whiskeys, clothing lines, airlines, jewelry, cigars and cigarettes, and any number of other products. He worked with the top models of the day, from Dovima and Dorian Leigh to Jean Patchett and Barbara Mullen to Jean Shrimpton and Lauren Hutton.

CAN’T WAIT TO WIN these wonderful books?

Buy them at Thames & Hudson.

THE GIVEAWAY

Giveaway open to US only.  October 13-23 11:59 PM EST. 18+

THE PRIZE

Winner will win $165 in fashion books.

  • Hats by Madame Paulette ($50)
  • Yves Saint Laurent ($50)
  • William Helburn: Seventh and Madison ($65)

$130 The Lens Friend Giveaway, The Cool Way to Never Lose Your Glasses

[ 169 ] October 12, 2014 |

Stop Losing your Glasses without Looking Like an OLD LADY

lens friend

The Lens Friend, Powerful Magnet Clip

The Lens Friend sent me over some of their magnet clips to try out and show to you, my readers. The Lens Friend is an alternative to those ugly corded glass holders that so many grandma’s wear. For women over 45 and anyone who wears glasses, readers, or sunnies this little device solves a myriad of problems of “Losing your Glasses”:

  • Glasses won’t fall off when you bend down
  • No silly looking old lady cord
  • No more misplaced glasses
  • Attaches to almost anything including shirts, jackets, purses and more

Watch the Chief Blonde give it a demo:

The Lens Friend is the first and only one piece silicone magnetic glasses holder! The soft silicone won’t damage or scratch your expensive frames. I liked it because it could be positioned under my coat or jacket so you couldn’t tell I had secured my glasses. The Lens Friend takes away the “Old Lady” aspect of wearing a glasses holder for Women over 45 or anyone who wants to ensure they don’t lose their glasses 

CAN’T WAIT TO WIN a Lens Friend?

Buy The Lens Friend in a variety of colors (Red, Light Blue, Royal Blue, Black, Ivory)  from the Lens Friend website for $12.99.

EXCLUSIVE CODE:

Code: blonde4

Discount: $4 off order

THE GIVEAWAY

Giveaway open to US only.  October 9-17 11:59 PM EST. 18+

THE PRIZE

One winner will win 10 Lens Friends ($130 Value) !  Enough to satisfy all your glass holder needs and giveaway to friends!
