Happy Halloween Dolls! Our friend Chelsea, Kelsey and Kerry decided to celebrate early (this weekend) and needless to say we dressed to impress. From left to right: Kim, Khloe, Kourt (Chelsea, Kelsey, Kerry).
Our night was filled with leopard print, jumpers, “K” quotes, and cameras everywhere… Well maybe not the camera part, we thought of that after the fact - how funny would it have been to have people dressed up as camera men and follow us around? This Halloween let your inner fashionistas take over, have fun and eat LOTS of candy!
We have some great accessories for you today and one of our absolute favs are these Tory Burch flats that our Doll Caralyne wears so well:
Now lets talk Fall/Winter must haves… A nude skinny jean is a must, Tory Burch flats are an obvious, and you can never layer enough.
Now lets take a peek back at Caralyne’s look- you NEED a slouchy leather jacket, biker jackets will always be in, but make any outfit a little more edgy. This leather jacket that Caralyne is wearing is great for dressing up or dressing down an outfit. Also, try blouses that have bling! You may think Caralyne is wearing a necklace, but that is part of her shirt, you can pinch your pennies with bedazzled blouses like these and look fab all the while.
As for that Louis Speedy 30, look out for them on Labeldoll.com, we got your back Dolls!! Now lets check out the rest of our auctions today:
The moral of this story is accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Accessories change the whole look of an outfit, stretch your clothes from season to season by investing in high end classic accessories and get them at a fraction of the price at Labeldoll.com!

Wrap up your day on a good note with a gift card of your choice, lets face it… we can never make up our minds so we didn’t want to put you in a predicament. Plus a little retail therapy saves us a lot of time and money we would have spent on therapists… This auction is scheduled to end @ 7:30pm EST
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Speech, 2005.
We wanna let you in on some of our dirty little secrets… When it comes to auctions that is:
Know your limit. Know what you want to win and how much you are willing to spend to win it.
Know your auction. Research how many times the item is auctioned off on the site, how much it normally goes for, and how long the auction usually lasts. This will help you to estimate how many bids you need in order to win a particular item.
Start small (but always remember, size matters). Use your 1 free bid and try our “Beginner Bid Pack” to get comfortable with the auction process.
Get to know your competition everyone bids differently, watch how your fellow fashionistas are bidding in order to effectively win that to-die-for accessory… it’s all about timing!
Bid on auctions that are ending soon, they can be less competitive during different times of the day.
My 2 year anniversary is coming up and I need a great gift for my girlfriend. Something really special! Do I get her a pair of shoes or a bag? We live in NYC so I want to get her something functional, sexy and classic. I need your help! xo Anonymous (CMD)
First I’m thinking “she’s the one”, secondly I’m thinking I need to go to NYC ASAP (but that’s more about me and less about this situation), thirdly I’m thinking Marc Jacobs, and a handbag none the less. Here’s why a handbag vs. shoes - shoes are very personal from the fit to the style, they also get some great milage. Because you’re in the Big Apple a bag is way safer of a bet, here’s why:
1. Leather lasts forever, just like your love for this Doll.
2. What a Doll keeps in her bag, a man will never know, but just know she will be thinking about you when she goes to grab it.
3. Women are more likely to wear bags over and over again (especially if it is the right one) then they do with shoes.
So lets get to the good stuff - the perfect bag! Marc by Marc Jacobs makes amazing handbags, check out this classic Q we are auctioning off on Wednesday. There is also a Marc Jacobs boutique in SOHO and they also sell MJ in department stores like Saks, Neimans, Barneys, and Bergdorf’s. One thing about color, black is safe, brown goes with anything, and any other colors are seasonal, so stick to the classic colors - she seems like a classy gal…
Now you have me in a NY state of mind! Good luck and remember: each year you must top the last.
Dolls- everyone needs a kick in the butt sometimes and be able to re-evaluate their lives. Read this article that our Dolls from Cheeky Chicago wrote that makes me want to make a change:
"Everyday, we do more than enough. We exhaust, we cajole, we strive, we prosper, we mire, we wither. We triumph. We wallow. We find ourselves uncertain and unglued. We become tangled with life, not in harmony beside it. Being tired is normal. Drinking copious amounts of coffee is normal. Working so hard for your family that you don’t see your family is normal. Divorces are normal. Broken homes are normal. Unemployment, obesity, disease, medication, hatred, oversaturation – these are all normal.
“Normal” means conforming to a standard. Well, this is me, un-conforming. I don’t want to be normal, and I don’t want to run myself into the ground. I don’t want to let life pass me by, or have regrets, or go too many more months without seeing my parents’ smiling faces or running barefoot through sand.
I don’t want more, I want enough. For me, I have never constructed my life by enough – I hang my livelihood on accomplishment. I am in a constant state of doing and accumulating and hoarding and waiting and pondering and thinking. I talk to be heard. I listen to get inspired. I am very rarely still with gratitude - really still – with no television, no computer, no music, and no outside world gleaming in.
When I travel, it is about collecting experiences. When I bought my first home, it was about collecting furniture. When I became a trainer eleven years ago, it was about collecting clients. When I met Alex, it was about collecting (and giving) love.
But, that old adage rings true – when is enough truly enough? And how do you figure out that fine line for you? In Wayne Muller’s book, a lift of being, having, and doing enough, Wayne explores the concept of being enough without exhausting ourselves.
I found this book while perusing a Barnes & Noble, a habit I am fearful will one day disappear… when smelling and flipping and plucking books from shelves will be reduced to downloading novels on a Kindle instead (screw you, electronic devil). As I flipped through the pages, I was struck by how candid and accurate his statements were:
“We have forgotten what enough feels like. Rather than feeling large and omnipotent, our own very limited, human days are likely to feel more cramped, overgrown and choked by impossible responsibilities. At worst, we feel powerless; no matter how strong our hearts, or how good or kind our intentions, each day the finish line seems farther away, the bar keeps rising, nothing is ever finished, nothing ever good enough. So we work and add and never stop, never back away, never feel complete, and we despair of ever finding comfort, relief, or sanctuary.”
All the spiritual leaders of the world discuss not striving – simply being, as we are, without materials, without blossoming thoughts of tomorrow or yesterday – only being in the present, as we are. While you can create a world like this, it will most likely leave you feeling isolated and ostracized from your immediate social circle and have you falling out of sync with the rest of the world. But, as I ponder this shift, I have to ask: “Is this necessarily a bad thing?”
One of my girlfriends is moving to London. She has met the man of her dreams and has married him, and is moving to a place she probably only glimpsed in movies or photographs as a child. I am elated for her – beyond proud. She is doing something people only talk about. And yet, you hear people everyday telling stories of traveling the world (with infinite funds, it seems) while you have been busy slaving away to have a 401k and large savings account or you are simply trying to keep your head above water. Have you missed the boat? Do they have some key to success you’re not getting? Is the joke on you? And who is living the better life? Who is more fulfilled?
We might always say the traveler, but it is about what’s enough for you in your life. This is your journey – not your kids’, not your spouse’s, not your parents’ – yours.
Live it your way.
We make but one choice daily: how we live each day. This is done by all the choices that compose it. At any given time, we can have a list a mile long of the daily tasks to accomplish, the deadlines to meet, the necessities, such as grocery shopping, doing laundry, feeding ourselves and our pets, getting gas – all which can take an exorbitant amount of time. We can also have those rare days (usually reserved for the weekends) where we do nothing; we sleep in, we watch movies and stay in pajamas, curled on the couch with bad food and no consequence of what will happen when Monday begins. This, in itself, can feel like an indulgence, instead of our simple right to relax. And then you meet Monday with a groan and a large coffee and slip back into the “grind,” marking down the days to another weekend.
I’ve always thought that to live our lives with passion, we need to do less of the boring, mandatory stuff, and more of the things that make our hearts sing. Why can’t every day have one single purpose? Happiness.
We can say the world does not work this way, but we are a world of intelligent, problem-solving thinkers. We must have a way to bring happiness to the forefront – not stress and exhaustion and more of the same.
So, if you remember anything, remember this: it is not about doing more. It is about doing enough to keep your life afloat and saying no to the rest. It is about stillness, about laughter, about shaking off the past (which you really cannot change, no matter how many times/moments/seconds of your life you spend obsessing or worrying about it), ignoring the future (how many years of our lives do we spend thinking about tomorrow??) and saying “yes” to this moment.
Because this moment is enough, and it’s all we really have.
So, be adequate. Be enough. Find wealth and grace and seduction in the small things.”

We’ve been on a mission to find you the perfect everyday, durable and designer shopping bag. Alas, we’ve found it! By none other then:
Miss Kate Spade does a great job of mixing girly, chic, fun, and elegance into one handbag. Today we are auctioning off a beautiful New York Shopper handbag that is the perfect Fall to Winter bag because of its shiny patent leather and understated elegance.
This bag is not only comfortable, it is more importantly fashionable and will go with anything! Accompanied by a super cute dust bag seen below:
Sorry I got a little testy there, I just Love Marc Jacobs and adore his bags, so It’s only right to offer them on Label Doll. Here is a gorgeous Marc tote we are auctioning off tonight, that’s scheduled to end at 7:30 pm EST:
The “stone” colored patent leather is aaamazing and is the PERFECT winter color…
There are some looks we are really loving this season, some are inspired by our favorite celebs. Old Hollywood Glamour is so in right now. From the K sisters to Amanda Seyfried. A more understated and natural look is pulled off by Miss. Seyfried:
Kim K modernized the Old Hollywood Glamour look with a brighter pink lip and a darker complexion:
Our favorite rouge can be found via our little friend Coco, Chanel that is…
Moral of the story:
Experiment! Play with your favorite styles and don’t be afraid to mix and match. Colors are trendy, but you can also start the trend. A bright lip can work during the Fall, you just have to make it work.
Like the fact it’s Monday isn’t enough… I woke up with car problems, not feeling fab (because I knew I had to go to the gym today), and when I walked into the office I got this as a private message on our tumblr page: “you’re a stupid white girl”. As a reply I’d like to say, I’m not white, I’m tan and I’m not stupid, I’m unique!
My advice: b-r-e-a-t-h-e. Well that and come check out our because when we have designer handbags on sale like this Louis Vuitton it always makes me feel better:
P.S. never take anything too seriously, it only causes wrinkles..
This is a joke right?! The only ones that were punked it seems were Kerry and I, turns out we “missed the train”? The thing is Dolls, Kerry and I usually don’t miss out on designer deals… Here was our thought process about going today vs. yesterday:
1. It’s Target, they mass produce everything including Missoni
2. It came out YESTERDAY, I will be able to go there tomorrow and shop my life away
3. Don’t think less of us, but we kinda forgot yesterday (David Yurman is SUCH a distraction)!
So… with that in mind, here is today’s trip in a nutshell:
"Hey Kels, wanna go to Target to stock up on some Missoni for Target?"- Kerry
"Uh, DUHHH… I’ll drive, oh and you look cute today…" -Kelsey
"OK, I’ll take pics while you drive" -Kerry
"Cool, I’ll take a pic of you while you’re outside of target" -Kelsey
(Walking in)… “Hey Ker… What happens if they are sold out of everything, I’ll DIE!!” -Kelsey
Some boots/shoes that were neither Kerry nor I’s size (but wicked cute):
A couple plates/mugs:
Some throw pillows:
A Kerry and Kelsey Fav - Stationary:
Kerry scored this super cute onsie:
And obviously we stocked up on some chic office supplies (it’s only right):
OK, so all in all… Our Missioni… AKA mission was kind of a bust. Missoni for Target is an amazing idea in theory and when you say it out loud you start to daydream, but lets face it our dreams didn’t come true. I really feel like Target should have been a little bit more prepared for our crazy buying habits (especially when it comes to designer fashion) and hooked a Doll up with at least a couple days of some good old fashioned Missoni. I know one thing, we had fun and I will remember this day forever!
So this hump day is one of my favs, not because we are another day closer to Friday, but because we are taking a little walk on the wild side. Why? You ask… Well because Kerry and I have picked out our favorite Tory Burch leopard print handbag and it’s yours for the taking!
Yep… this bag is amazing! Yes, I’m obsessed with it and yes we are auctioning it off today! Its adjustable straps are PERFECT for a comfy crossbody bag or you can adjust the straps for a more sleek look and wear it as a shoulder bag. Check out how it falls:
