Bottega Verde : Italy's #1 Cosmetic Brand Now Available in the US

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bottega Verde. All opinions are 100% mine.

Bottega Verde is Italy's largest cosmetics brand. Not only are the the largest cosmetic brand, but they are also a natural one, yay!

I personally love beauty products but contrary to what most people think, I'm not too much of an experimenter. I am extremely picky about my skin care & cosmetic purchases- I typically opt for the products that contain the fewest synthetic ingredients and the most 'natural' components. I get much more excited about the latest natural beauty products than I do about those with a big name, huge ad campaigns, and lots of hype. Actually, when I thumb through Vogue & Harper's I will look at the clothing ads, but not the cosmetics ones... is that weird?

Bottega Verde creates their products with 300+ ingredients that are sourced from nature & manufactures their products in Italy. I became interested in Bottega Verde after learning that their products are now available in the US through their new website. I am curious to try out some of their products, especially the Olive Oil face cleanser. I have always loved olive oil cleansers for their ability to dissolve makeup & also their gentleness on the skin.

Bottega Verde is offering customers a chance to try out three of their most popular products via their Italian Beauty Package, a $24 value but you pay just the $4.99 shipping price. This is a great opportunity if you're interested in joining the millions who have already discovered Italy's #1 cosmetic brand!

40-70% off at Liz Claiborne Outlet Stores

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Liz Claiborne New York Outlets. All opinions are 100% mine.

Yesterday the temperature in Los Angeles hit a sweltering 113 degrees. Last night my typically breezy city was a sweltering 90 degrees at night.

While piling on layer upon layer of warm, toasty sweaters seem only a distant mirage, the time has come nevertheless to pick up those Fall essentials and pull out some old Fall favorites from the closet!

Liz Claiborne New York Outlets is currently selling their entire inventory for 40-70% off retail prices. That means at least 40% for the most current fall pieces and year round basics. Liz Claiborne's fall lineup includes feminine florals, stripes, ruffles, and embroidery details. This Fall, Liz is all about the pretty!

My personal Fall look for '10 also includes stripes (see my previous posts for extending the nautical look into the fall), subtle details (feminine, futuristic, etc.) and a mixture of warm and cool colors. When I saw Liz Claiborne's Fall preview, the delicately ruffled neckline on the creamy colored cardigan pictured above had me swoooning.

Liz Claiborne is great for classic pieces, so be sure to stop by your nearest outlet store for the best deals. While the closest Liz Claiborne Outlet from here is quite a trip (at Desert Hills Premium Outlets, more than an hour away), the drive could be well worth it for the savings alone. Plus, you'll be at an outlet- tons of other stores to check out and maybe do some early holiday shopping?

London Fashion Week Spring 2011 RTW : Part 2

Since I pretty much neglected most of London fashion week up until now, I decided to compile some of my favorite, blog appropriate looks here in just three posts (versus the 6 for NYFW). Oh yes, I had to remove a lot of images just to not go crazy with the posting. Don't worry London, I still love you!

Giveaway : Jules Smith : Vintage Charm Jelly Bracelet Set (as seen on Kristen Stewart)

Jules Smith is a vintage inspired jewelry line which combines fresh, youthful designs with an understated elegance to create a unique, appealing aesthetic.

From the Jules Smith website:

"Gina Nigrelli, designer behind Jules Smith, a vintage-inspired jewelry collection, is at the forefront of modernizing accessory trends from the 1970’s and 80’s. Her pieces are influenced by the strength and style of the iconic women of those trend-setting decades. Nigrelli’s designs span timeless silver, rose gold and sterling silver bangles, edgy knuckle rings encrusted with crystals, jelly charm bracelets, bold chain link necklaces and bracelets, opulent hoop and chandelier earrings, leather cuffs and vibrant neon-hued bracelets, amongst others. Top-selling styles include the Best Friend Wing Necklace, which is a modern interpretation of the beloved 1980’s 'BFF Necklace,' and her jelly bracelets, a nod to Madonna’s iconic 'Like a Virgin' look. Jules Smith marries the reminiscent with the contemporary by continuing to evolve her line with timely details and eclectic materials.

'My jewelry is whimsical, fun and effortless, inspired by powerful women, who exuded their confidence and self-assuredness through bold fashion and accessory statements,' says Nigrelli.

Nigrelli’s designs are often featured on leading trend-setting women, including Diane Kruger, Blake Lively, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mary-Kate Olsen, Taylor Swift, Leighton Meester, Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Momsen, Nicky Hilton, Eva Longoria, Camila Alves, AnnaLynne McCord, Kayla Ewell, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Melanie Fiona, among others."

Jules Smith recently gifted me with a beautiful Seastar Anchor Pendant Necklace in silver ($85) which I've been having a great time pairing with different outfits. I love the delicate long chain, the slim and streamlined pendant and the light weight of the piece. It wears so comfortably and looks so subtle and elegant that it is a great accompaniment to most outfits. The silver is also amazingly gorgeous and gives off a multi-color glimmer in the sunlight.

My favorite summer to fall transitional style is combining nautical inspired pieces with more traditional fall pieces (coats, scarves, boots, neutral colors) and the Seastar Anchor Pendant is perfect for accessorizing this look. The chain length (32") is awesome for layering, for peeking out from the bottom of a fall scarf or falling into the folds of a warm, knit cardigan.

Here's how I styled this piece today:

•McGregor denim blazer • Love from Yaya tank
•BCBG Max Azria bubble skirt
Dolce Vita oxford pumps
