From Here to There

Lately I've been thinking of going through my closet to pick out clothes I just don't wear often enough to be worth holding on to. 
As I was thinking about the types of things to keep, a very important wardrobe rule popped in my head:

The best items are multipurpose items.

This means, in order to have a functional, but not overflowing wardrobe, stock up on items that can be worn to a variety of events and occasions.

Example: The dresses below are all ones that could easily be taken from day to night, or from business/professional to night-on-the-town!
It all depends on the accessories you use!

  1. Cami Blouson Dress. $22
  2. Paprika Floral Bow Low Back Dress. $27
  3. Red Cocktail Hi-Lo Dress. $19
  4. Block Belted Dress. $48
  5. Plus One 2 Dress. $21
  6. Black and White Tribal Print Mini. $15

Need help figuring out how to make these work for different occasions and events? Send me a message through the Deanna's Deals Facebook Page and make an "Outfit Request!"

Today I started my 5th job!
 I am now the nanny for two itty-bitty babies, both of which are ridiculously cute, super wonderful, and the inspiration for today's post!

Babies are one of the cutest things on earth, and to keep them so cute, and healthy, they have to be "handled with care!" This means you have to take special precautions when it comes to what they eat, wear, play with, are bathed with, and what their toys and dishes are washed with. 

Many of the products on the market, even if made specifically for babies, are filled with chemicals that are not safe or healthy for babies to be around.

Today, I wanted to share with you some safe, affordable options for products you can use around you little ones!

Hello my lovely readers!
Hope all is well with you and life is treating you kindly!

As you may or may not have seen on Twitter, I am currently working 5 jobs, so life has been, and will be, a bit crazy for me for the rest of the summer. I am doing my absolute best to keep up with Deanna's Deals, but I'd just like to warn you that I may not be able to post every single day from now on. 

Today, unfortunately, I won't be able to post deals for you (I haven't been able to go searching for any for today, though I will try to queue some up for the rest of the week).

Instead, I'd like to share something with you that may be of some help.

I know for me, picking out outfits isn't always the easiest thing to do. Lately, however, I've been simply googling "cute outfits for rainy days" or "how to dress up a maxi skirt" or something like that. Seems like every time I do that, the site pops up with tons of great inspiration boards related almost exactly to the kind of outfit I'm looking for, often times with an exact outfit laid out on the board, complete with shoes, bags, accessories, and makeup ideas that would look good with the outfit!

I love designing outfits, when I actually can, that is, so I decided to give Polyvore a try! What do you know, I'm obsessed! And, not to toot my own horn or anything, but my boards are gaining quite a bit of popularity! Yay me!

So here's what I'm posting about today. As you may have noticed, there's a new button on the side bar that links to my Polyvore profile. This is so whenever you're having issues deciding on an outfit, you can quickly check out some of my boards, or other users boards if I don't have any that fit what you're looking for!

Along with just checking out the outfits I've put together, you can also make a request. Using the same protocol as requesting a deal (sending a message through the Deanna's Deals Facebook Page) you can now request an outfit! Send me as many details as you can provide, including pictures of items you'd like incorporated (if you have any), and I'll create a custom outfit design just for you! 

Don't have any pieces similar to the ones I used in the board, but would like to own them? Just send in a Deal Request for the item, and I'm on it!

I hope you all find this helpful!

Barely There Bandeaus

We've got another Trend Alert on our hands!

Today's trend: The Bandeau

For those of you unfamiliar with the Bandeau, it's basically like a tube style bra, or half of a tube top. They are taking over streets and red carpets alike, and I personally think they're fabulous!

Bandeaus are offered in a large variety of colors, patterns, and cuts.
Here are a few that would be great as staple pieces for your wardrobe!

  1. Animal Print Zip-Front Longline Bandeau Bra. $15
  2. Black Seamless Bandeau Bra. $5.50
  3. White Lace Bandeau Bra. $7.50
  4. Red Lurex Lace Bandeau Bra. $7.50
  5. Pink Zip-Front Longline Bandeau Bra. $15

Now, I know not all of us are comfortable "baring all," but that's ok! 
Bandeaus don't have to be worn alone!

Another way to wear a bandeau is to wear a sheer, lace, chiffon, or cut-out cover up! These cover ups are a stylish and sexy way to show some skin without having to worry about marks and bulges, and without being risque.

Girl Look at That Body

Lately, I've been trying to be more active and get back in shape. Unfortunately, so far, I've been doing miserably, so I was searching around looking for ways to motivate myself and I came across an article that talked about how the athletic apparel you wear can actually improve your workout, as well as your attitude towards working out.

You can find the article, Look Good While You Get Fit, here.

After reading this article, it got me thinking about how my own workout clothes are seriously lacking in pretty much every department. I usually just put on some yoga pants that are a bit too long and a severely over-sized t-shirt (this is also the uniform I wear when I'm sick and bedridden), which I now understand makes me very unenthusiastic and unmotivated.

I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem, so today's deals are on some cute athletic pieces that will hopefully get us to be more active!

Patterned Platforms

While away on my vacation, I got a chance to see summer trends from all over. If there was one trend that really stood out to me (especially considering my obsessions), it was the bold patterns that many people were sporting on their shoes!

Today's deals are on patterned shoes (because you know I can't keep away from shoe deals for long!) And all shoes shown below are under $40!

  1. Michael Antonio Marvela. $30
  2. Enigma Floral Oxford Bootie. $35
  3. Madeline Girl Twiggy Sandal. $35
  4. Lulu Townsend Yanka Reptile Sandal. $20
  5. Qupid Honor-11 Sandal. $35
  6. Madden Girl Kiwii Wedge Sandal. $30
  7. SM Kia Sandal. $20

Jet Setting

We're going to try something new!

Since I just got back from vacation, and of course really want to go back, I decided that today's deals would be on travel packages!

Initially, I'd planned on keeping travel packages as a request-only deal post, so that I knew the exact To/From/When information, but we'll give this no-details approach a try!
Please keep in mind that also means advertised prices are not final.

Before I show you the deals, though, I'd like to let you know about a sale going on at CheapOAir. They are currently having their summer deals, meaning on select flights, tickets are 40%-65% off! Also, use the Promo Code: NY15 to receive $15 off your service fees!
These promotions can be combined!

Now for the deals!

Book by July 10, 2012 for $863/person Roundtrip Tickets



Don't those sound like amazing trips?

P.S. I have no idea why 2 of the deals they had were from Chicago, or why they were both 3 night stays, but that's what they had, so I hope you enjoy!

P.S.S. If there's a specific trip you'd like to go on, please send me a message through the Deanna's Deals Facebook Page and I'll put together a customized package for you!

Survey Says

Hi all! Sorry for the recent lack of posts; I just got back from vacation and have been very busy getting back into the swing of things. However, things are calm for the day, so I'll be preparing as many deals as possible for you!

Before I start posting deals, though, I'd really appreciate it if you could take a quick, 10 question survey. As Deanna's Deals grows, I want to make sure it's tailored to its viewers, so your feedback would be very helpful!

You can find the survey by clicking here, the survey image above, or going through the SurveyMonkey App on the lower right hand of the header on the Deanna's Deals Facebook Page.

The survey is entirely anonymous and I ask that you be as honest as possible.

The survey will be open for two weeks, closing at midnight on 7/23/12.

Thank you!

Happy Saving!

Little Touches of You

One of my favorite things about visiting other peoples homes is seeing the little pieces and personalized decor around the house that subtly but genuinely shows who the people that live there are. 

Having little pieces around the house that stand out and are personal to you lets others in and helps them understand you. 

If nothing else, they're great conversation starters!

Today's deals are on little pieces that I personally would love to have in my home, and I think are just precious!

Wood Carved Ring Box. $30

 Trunks Full of Taste Shaker Set. $13

 Dr. Seuss Wall Art. $18

 The End Bookend. $15

Save the Owls Lightswitch Cover. $15

Happy Saving!

Cute is Calling

Seems nowadays everyone (except me) has an iPhone!

Other than the endless supply of apps, Siri, and general smart phone-ness, one of the main things I'm jealous of is all the cute covers and skins that are out there for the iPhone!

Today, I have some really unique iPhone cases and skins to share!
And yes, I'm totally green with envy right now...

Happy {i}Saving!
