CelebrityKate Mara Hits Manhattan

Kate Mara, a native New Yorker herself, hit the cover of Manhattan Magazine and we are loving her look! We’re used to seeing her as the brainy and gorgeous redhead, Zoe Barns, in House of Cards, but these days she’s rocking summery blonde ombre locks. A dramatic smoky style perfectly emphasizes her brown eyes, with a deep red lip bringing it all together. Did we mention her statement jewelry? Adorable! Mara2Kate MaraMara4Mara3  (Images courtesy of fashiongonerogue.com)

CelebrityElizabeth Olsen for Marie Claire UK

Marie Claire UK chose Elizabeth Olsen for their June cover, giving the actress a chance to show off her modeling skills. Rocking some wicked tousled tresses, that famous Olsen pout, and styles by Miu Miu, Dior, and Lanvin (to name a few), Olsen made for a sweet cover girl with plenty of style and sass. We’re looking forward to her role in the upcoming Avengers movie, and hopefully plenty more magazine covers as well!Elizabeth OlsenOlsen1Olsen2Olsen4 (Images courtesy of fashiongonerogue.com)

GeneralLuLu*s How-To: Clean Out Your Closet

closetThe changing of the seasons always finds us stocking up on the latest looks, but it’s not always easy to find room for them in the closet. That’s why there’s no time like the present to finally clean out your closet! It can be hard, we know, but there are ways to make it easier!  We recommend you ask yourself the following questions to help with the process:

1) Have you worn it in the past year? We understand that some items are worn less often than others, but if you haven’t worn an item in more than a year, it’s probably best to get rid of that piece to make way for something more fabulous!

2) Does it fit? Dress for the body you have now, and get rid of items that are too small or too large. Our figures are bound to change over time, and our clothes should change too! Stick with the clothes that fit your body now and flattering outfits are sure to follow.

3) Is it damaged? We are all guilty of hanging on to an item that we love, even though it has a hole or a stain. If you’re sure you can (and will!) get it fixed, then by all means keep it! Otherwise, if it takes more effort than you will realistically put forth, it is probably best to break up with that item.

4) How do you feel when you wear this? When you feel good, you look good! If wearing a particular item doesn’t make you feel confident, then it’s time to part ways and find something new to love.

But wait, don’t just toss those clothes in the trash! Consider donating them or doing a clothing swap with the gal pals to give those clothes a second life!
