Win A $1000 Fall Wardrobe from A Design Star

2014 October 13

When you’re wearing clothes designed by
MarlaWynne, your friends will wonder if you snuck off to Paris for a shopping spree.

“The Mother of Reinvention,” Marla Wynne was an over 50, out-of-work Hollywood producer who relied on her passion, drive and a new sewing machine (not to mention a need to feed herself and her kids) to launch a fashion career.

Now HSN’s fastest-rising fashion star, Marla creates collections as versatile as she is: Lovely to layer, marvelous to mix and match, perfectly packable and wonderfully washable. And they make every one of her growing legion of fans look like a million, covering all our “icky bits,” from jiggly underarms to pooching tummies.

Wouldn’t you love to be the lucky FOF to have Marla help you reinvent your look? Enter below to win a personal shopping consultation with our incredibly talented friend, and walk away with a spectacular MarlaWynne fall wardrobe, valued up to $1000.

Win Tickets to 50 Shades! The Musical in NYC

2014 July 17

Whether you’re a 50 Shades of Grey fanatic or you couldn’t get through the first 10 pages…

You’ll enjoy 50 Shades! The Musical – The Original Parody, now playing Off-Broadway at the Elektra Theatre in New York City.

Be prepared for a bit of raunch, and a lot of skin (no nudity, however)! The story starts with Carol, Pam, and Bev deciding the next selection for their book club. When they choose 50 Shades of Grey, the fun (or should we say, fantasy) begins. Clever lyrics, lively dancing and a cavorting cast of real characters, from virginal college student, Anastasia, to illustrious businessman, Christian Grey (this one has a paunch to go with the raunch).
