FashionThe Gilded Tribe of Vivienne Westwood!

Earlier this week, we peeked at Vivienne Westwood’s new Palladium line of jewelry, but the real show came out earlier this month with the release of her Gold Label Fall/Winter 2011/12 collection at Paris Fashion Week!
With metallic gilding and gold sparkles galore, these half tribal, half fairytale fashions are gorgeously out of this world. Personally I love the bold ashy make-up that is brushed and smudged to invoke a sense of the tribal. It gives a daringly fierce look that calls to mind a band of woman warriors.
I sense a strong Celtic influence here, with boiling red hair, knotty side braids that frame the face and cape-like jackets that spring from another time and place. Medieval bodices and gowns add a light whimsy to some of the darker elements, but the collection as a whole is fresh and contemporary.
Glittered boots match the gold-glittered runway giving the model a sort of unearthly lift.
Savage yet sophisticated.
With a black army helmet and distressed skinny pants, this ensemble definitely pushes the modern side of the collection. 

Check out that gorgeous wedding dress for the untamed bride and Ms. Vivienne looking very whimsical herself! (Added bonus: the model on the right is smiling; a rare model moment!)
What do you think of the drifting black make-up?
Fierce and fashionable, or just a smoky hot mess?

FashionLaurie’s Loves: I Heart Sales!

‘Tis the season for sales! In my opinion, sales are almost (note:  I said almost, not quite) as good as chocolate and cake. Delicious and wonderful and they make any day spectacular. Luckily for you, we have some screamin’ deals online at LuLu*s! When you get a chance, make sure to head to our sale page to look for yourself, but until then, check out my favorites. I’ve scoped out the options and posted some pretty sweet finds below!
Take a look!


Alright girls, who else loves a discount? Get your laptops ready and your mouses warmed up — it’s time to shop SALES!!!!

GeneralTake a Mini Photo Tour of Ireland!

Whilst studiously writing and blogging away this week, some of us LuLu*s girls were discussing what our plans were for the illustrious St. Patty’s Day. It got me to reminiscing, and I decided to hunt through some of my old pics. Oh the memories! A girlfriend and I backbacked through Europe a few years ago, and Ireland was one of our very favorite stops (it must be the McClintock in me!)
To get you in the true spirit of the holiday, I’ve posted some of my favorite pics from the trip!

Sooo…anybody ready to hop on the next plane over? I wish!
Well, hopefully these pictures will tide you over! Have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day, and may the luck o’ the Irish be with you!

CelebrityJersey Shore Love

It’s T-Shirt time!!!!!!!!
I don’t know about you, but I am OBSESSED with Jersey Shore and am oh so excited about all of the madness that has been prevailing this season. I am greatly anticipating season four even more so because MTV is sending the bronzed group to Italy and I can only imagine the crazy situations these individuals will get themselves into. Yes, Pauly D, Mike “The Situation”, Snookie, J-Woww, Vinny, Sammi, Ronnie, and Deena will be sent off overseas to tap a little more into their roots. I simply cannot wait to see how real Italians will react to their antics and what will result of it all. Whether it is Seaside Heights or lovely Italy I will be tuning in and I hope you do too!
Isn’t this picture adorable? Looks like the Jersey Shore love is contagious.
