Dressed to Thrill; The Duchess of Cambridge

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been touring Europe this summer, and this time, they are travelling with their exquisitely dressed children in tow.  Vanessa Friedman of the New York Times dubbed their color matched ensembles, "Pantone Politics".  Whatever you wish to call it, I think they look absolutely splendid!

Wearing Erdem, another of her favored British Designer,
and ours...

It is custom, is to dress in a notable designer of the country being visited, or the countries flag colors.  It s both thoughtful and respectful to the hosts.  The Duchess never disappoints! Her penchant for dressing in dresses creates an aura of impeccable calm.

Mary Jane Denzer, the store I co-own with Anastasia Cucinella has been a destination for magnificent dresses for nearly 40 years.  I don't think its a coincidence that both of us wear them practically every day.  We both favor the brainless simplicity of putting on one wonderful  thing in the morning and letting that be our statement. What could be easier?

When we were buying for Fall, we both wanted to expand our offerings to include dresses for all occasions , not just black tie occasions.  We scoured Paris for beautiful lifestyle dresses, suitable for work, luncheons, Birthdays, meetings, cocktail and dinner parties from designers we love; Giambattista Valli, Georges Hobeka, Jenny Packham, Tony Ward, Monique Lhullier, J. Mendel, Rachel Gilbert, Alex Perry and others.

Every day, when the UPS man arrives, it feels like we are opening beautiful presents...It's hard to remember everything we bought, so each one is a joyous surprise.  We love them all and seeing them tried on and purchased by our clients is incredibly gratifying.

We invite you to come visit us at Mary Jane Denzer next to the Ritz Carlton in White Plains. (914-328-0338), to see our new goodies. It would be our joy to assist you for all of your occasions.

Oh, and Duchesses are welcome too...

Hair Restoration; Two things to share

Baby Bliss Italo Luminoso Hair Dryer

I feel extraordinarily guilty about my blow dryer graveyard.  It's extensive and they are all in perfect working condition.  If any of you Lovelies, have a recommendation as to where I can donate them, I'm all ears.

The one thing I do know, is none of them were giving me what I desired; reduced drying time, high wattage and nano technology for increased shine, despite their claims.  I've always wanted to try a Baby Bliss dryer, but was not interested in paying a couple of hundred dollars for one.

Neither apparently was my colorist Melissa, who discovered the Baby Bliss Italo Luminoso Hair Dryer.  It's a goodie, and with a $79.99 price tag, I left the salon and headed straight to Ulta.  While researching this post, I just found it available through this link at Walmart, for a whopping $20 less.  2000 watts of perfect.

Pretty much, it's the dryer of my dreams, so whether or not you need it, I don't think you will be disappointed if you buy it, and certainly not, for that price.

That's part 1....

Revlon Fill and Blur Concealer

Revlon Fill and Blur Concealer

Lovelies, am I ever going to stop compulsively buying new concealers??? Nah.
My stash, runneth over, currently consisting of: Neutrogena, IT, Maybelline Super Stay, Cover FX,  Glo Minerals, Physician's Formula and now Revlon Fill and Blur Concealer.

The bait that stopped me in my tracks of course, was the promise of "filling in fine lines" as well as blurring them. If only...

Flashback Friday: Maybelline SuperStay 24 Color Lipstick

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color Lipstick
36 Shades $9.00 (give or take)
I don't know why I move on from things I have loved and review well in the past.
Originally, I tried Maybelline's SuperStay 24 Color back in 2011.

Pretty much, it met and somewhat exceeded my expectactions; LONG wear, with a considerably less drying formula than its competitors in the field.  It's as close as I'm ever going to get to my fantasy of tattooed lips.

They have extended the shade offerings, 36 in all,  with 045 Wildberry comes close to my idea of a dream shade; a just bitten, natural looking lip.  I also love using it to lock my beloved MAC Soar Lip Pencil in place, basically, all day.

My Nails are Back!!! My 2 Step Recovery Program

I have pretty much, always had nails like granite.  Then one day, like your first rogue chin hair or the moment you think every publisher has changed their print to mice type, my once lovely nails, were splitting and bending.

It was then that I discovered Nailtiques Formula 2, a strengthener designed for weak brittle nails.  After that, I used it with routine and once again my nails flourished.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy Independence Day Lovelies!

Fascinating Fact:  Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence, (who both later served as Presidents of the United States), died on the same day,  July 4th, 1826, 50 years after the day they signed it!!!


Do have a fun, safe and Happy 4th, however you are celebrating.  Our store, Mary Jane Denzer will be closed today in observation of the Holiday.

Happy 4th Beautiful!

I recently blogged about my go-to leg tanning fave, Vita Liberate's Body Blur. I love everything about it except the $45 price tag.  Still, I cannot live without it, in the summer, when I tend to wear dresses daily.

I noticed my tube dwindling, so I decided to look on line and see if anyone would ship it to me free.

Well, not only did I find an online beauty company that ships everything free, always, they were also selling my beloved Body Blur for 25% less than everyone else!  This heavenly site is called Lovely Skin.
