We interrupt our regularly scheduled dose of “Pinspiration” for something even more exciting: our Valentine’s Day Pinterest sweepstakes in partnership with Madewell. The stakes? One lucky winner will receive a $2,000 shopping spree – $1,000 to each Rue La La and Madewell.

The rules are simple: enter the sweeps on our Facebook page, then pin one thing you love from Rue La La, one thing you love from Madewell, and (at least) one other thing you’ve loved at first sight (spotted from anywhere). Go bananas. This is no time to show restraint.

For us, pinning what we love means anything from buffalo chicken pizza to an Hermès cuff bracelet – with plenty of style and Rueisms in between. But to get everyone’s gears rolling, we asked a couple of our staffers to create their own Pinterest boards (just to see what would make their lists).

Who: Rachel Solomon, Associate Creative Director
What she loves: We’re sensing a red trend – not to mention a commitment to Chanel.

Who: Domonic Gunn, Digital Designer
What he loves: Dom has a thing for tailored suits, and we have a sneaking suspicion his wife asked for those strappy sandals.


Enter our Rue La La + Madewell: Love At First Sight Pinterest Sweepstakes from February 5 to February 13, 2013, for the chance to win a $2,000 shopping spree – $1,000 to each Rue La La and Madewell.

Four Pieces to Turn Your LBD into A Valentine's Day Ensemble

Going overboard on a Valentine’s Day ensemble is an easy thing to do. If you throw on a red dress, sparkly heels, and a few pink accessories, you’ll look like Cupid – not your valentine’s dinner date. Since an LBD never fails, start with that clean slate, then add just one piece of V-Day–inspired sparkle, like ruby drop earrings, a pink cocktail ring, or even a simple heart-shaped pendant. Then you can rest assured your date is staring at you for all the right reasons.

Our Swarovski Boutique opens Sunday, January 27, at 11AM ET.

Modern Love

At ELLE, we love to explore a women’s sense of self and personal style whether it’s in the way she dresses, lives, or loves. So this month, we’re redefining what it means to be in love. Forget the traditional, by-the-book Valentine’s Day definition and embrace what we like to call “Modern Love.” From celebrating confidence by slipping on a beautiful lingerie set, to indulging with a glass of champagne or piece of dark chocolate, this “new-age” love affair is all about embracing you. So, if you haven’t already, pick up our February issue of ELLE and check out our Modern Love Boutique for sweet, stylish love-yourself offerings that capture the essence of what Modern Love means to us.
