BeautyTrend Alert: Candy-Colored Nails by Obsessive Compulsive

I have a confession: I’m wearing nail polish for the first time in a decade! 
 
I can’t help it, I’m totally smitten by the candy-colored palette I just received from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Not only is OCC 100% vegan and cruelty-free, but the color palettes are totally on-trend, and the quality far exceeds the price (just like Lulus!). When I brought these new colors out, the warehouse became a frenzy of nail painting and we discovered that these nail lacquers have a super-smooth coat that goes on really nicely, and dries quickly. What more could you want?
 

Obsessive Compulsive Nail Lacquer in Something, Pansy, and Pageant.
 
The Results: The warehouse favorite was undoubtedly Something, being a creamy almost-but-not-too-shocking shade of pastel blue. For me, though, it’s gotta be Pansy, bearing an in-between shade of pinky-purple that is actually a little more subtle than pictured.

FashionSwap Lulus at TxSC in Austin Texas!

We are here is Austin Texas and we have been swapping clothes, meeting bloggers at the Texas Style Council and gearing up for Style X, the fashion event and tradeshow of SXSW! 
 
The Texas Style Council, also known as TxSC, is a blogger and social media conference geared towards networking, improving your blogs and photos and getting the opportunity to meet other fashion and style bloggers. It is an awesome way for us to meet new bloggers and we enjoyed this year just as much as last! 
 
We partnered up with our friends at Swap.com for another clothing swap catered especially for all our blogger friends! Each eager participant brought two cute pieces from their closets that weren’t getting much wear to offer up as a swap for other girls. Lulus came armed with our cutest and most fashion forward pieces so that every participant received a special Lulus item to take home with them!
 
Take a look below for some of our favorite photos from the night!

ArtKinetic Jewelry by Dukno Yoon

 
Originally from Seoul, Korea, metalsmith Dukno Yoon currently lives and works in the U.S., creating his elegant kinetic rings and sculptures. With a mix of fabricated metal and natural feathers, the mechanical actions triggered by a simple flick of the wrist (or finger) offer a wonderful and mesmerizing lightness. 

 
 

 
 

FashionPastels Gone Wild: Lovisa Ekholm for Grazia Germany

 
Ah, we just can’t get enough pastels right now and this editorial for Grazia Germany pretty much sums up everything about spring. Icy blue thaws into blushing pink with dashes of sunshine yellow and spring green. Ruffly layers and feminine chiffon create a decorative feel spiked with sharp-edged accessories and a nonchalant rocker-girl bouffant. Tina Luther photographs.
