FashionModel Pick of the Week: The Cutest Blue Romper!

Blue Romper

If you’ve got a thing for spring, give it a warm welcome in the cutest blue romper to step out from the winter snow; the Dot of the Bay Blue Polka Dot Romper! Get ready to flaunt your hourglass figure, too! Our model Alexis loved the flattering fit of this little one-piece, and touts it to be a perfect spring/summer outfit, just throw it on and go… “you can’t do better than that!”

FashionEmerging Designer: Stella Jean

Feast your eyes on the transatlantic conquests of emerging designer Stella Jean and be wowed by the bold batiks paired with checks, stripes, jewels, and a menagerie of animal prints. Unlike most designers, this Italian-born former model pulls the resort card season after season, dishing up savory pattern play tailored with a feminine, fifties sensibility.

Some of my favorite looks from her spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection include studded details along turbans, stacked cuffs, and sky-high heels. Woven hats team with extravagant earrings and collar necklaces to top the clever color combinations that are reminiscent of a bustling marketplace, and a sunny pop of yellow eyeshadow ensures you’re transported directly to a land of warmer-weather and unabashed color.

FashionIt Girl: Esther Quek

If you’ve ever dabbled in the menswear trends (or admired the women who do) it’s time you should meet Esther Quek. It comes as no surprise that Esther Quek is the fashion director of menswear magazine The Rake, but what IS surprising is her uncanny ability to pull together a tailored blazer, slacks, loafers, ties, and a seriously short haircut, while still looking fabulously feminine.

ContestsMeet the Golden Ticket Winner for 2012!

Our newest holiday tradition here at LuLu*s  is our beloved Golden Ticket giveaway!

2012 marks the second year in which we created a Golden Ticket worth an $1000 shopping spree and packed it up into one random order during December. We are so excited to present the winner of this year’s ticket: Samantha Munkelwitz!

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, Samantha?

I am 19 and in my second year of college at Northern Arizona University, and am an active member of Alpha Omicron Pi. I am a marketing major and want to eventually become a fashion buyer! I am also the Recruitment Chair in my sorority and so far I am in love with it! I have two younger brothers that live in Phoenix (my hometown) and have a dog named Roxy that I am absolutely obsessed with!

What was your reaction when you found the Golden Ticket in your package?

For Christmas, I asked my dad for a pair of boots from LuLu*s. When I opened them up on Christmas Day, there was the Golden Ticket. I kind of stared at it for a minute, not knowing exactly what it was since I had no idea of the contest. When I asked my dad, “Is this for real?” he replied and said he wasn’t exactly sure but LuLu*s had already contacted him. Two days later I received a call from a representative, like it said I would on the ticket! From there its been a shock that I actually won!

What items on Lulus.com are you thinking about ordering with your winnings?

As for items that I have an eye on, that would most definitely be shoes since LuLu*s has the most AMAZING shoes! I love dresses too, so much that I’ve already bought two!

Thanks Samantha and enjoy your Shopping Spree!!
