Rue La La Deals

If you have the $20 credit from Rue La La (no longer available) Sunday night is a great time to try to maximize your savings.  On Sunday nights they have a Styleathon where they often have great deals.  This week there are a few boutiques that caught my eye:

Corioliss has some great deals on ceramic hair straighteners.  This type of product is the only thing I have ever found that will actually straighten my curly hair.

Ariat- because I think everyone should have cowboy boots.

Argento Vivo- has some great jewelry.
