Diane von Furstenberg will re-enter the beauty biz this fall with the launch of a women’s fragrance through her partnership with ID Beauty. The collection will also eventually include a makeup and skin care line.

DVF previously launched a fragrance and color line in the 70s but sold it to British pharmaceutical giant Beecham Group Ltd. in 1983.

I, for one hope this time the fragrance is wearing a wrap-dress (in my size).

DVF Ups the Ante on FREE SHIPPING!

In my post from this morning (where I drooled all over the new DVF iPhone cover), I expressed some confusion over the promo code ‘DVFSHIPFREE’ that Diane von Furstenburg posted about on their Facebook page as well as some difficulties I was experiencing while trying to order it off their website.

Go figure, I check my email and within an hour of the post going live the lovely people at Diane von Furstenberg sent me an email! They clarified the promo code ‘DVFSHIPFREE’ (to sum it up you could buy as many $400+ dresses you’d like but if there wasn’t an item in your shopping cart for under $100 –like the $20 iPhone cover, you don’t qualify for free shipping). But lets forget about that nonsense considering they shared an even better promo code with me!  Use APRILSHIP at checkout during the month of April and receive free ground shipping on

DVF’s iPhone Cover

I’m obsessed!!! How hot is the new Diane von Furstenberg iPhone Cover?  She designed it in honor of the new iPhone application DVF launched earlier this week.

I saw on Facebook they are running a free shipping promo. ‘Use DVFSHIPFREE for free ground shipping on any order with an item under $100’.  Is it me or is that awkwardly worded?  The iPone cover is $20, which is under $100 so I think that means I’m getting free shipping?  And on that note, ONLY $20!!!! I’m so impressed (and surprised) they didn’t price it higher.

I need it and am ordering it now! Or at least trying to, the website seems to be having a meltdown at the moment when it comes to ordering them.  Maybe they weren’t expecting the entire female population to be ordering it all at once.

It also fits iPod Touches, for more information visit dvf.com
