FashionTrend Alert: Babydoll Dresses 2014

040114BabyDollDresses

A trend this cute hasn’t been hip since the 1990′s and we’re SO glad they’re back: babydoll dresses! From festival festivities to brunch with the girls, these fun and flirty frocks are so easy to dress up or down with their swing-worthy style.

1990′s Grunge: Get your 1990’s grunge look on with a plaid print babydoll dress or a flirty floral print  like our Under the Sunflower Blue Floral Print Babydoll Dress. Black or colored tights perfectly complement ankle boots like the Wild Diva Lounge Essence 11 Black Lace-Up Combat Boots, while a hat, some dark lipstick, and a long pendant necklace will definitely complete this throwback look!

Uptown Chic: Take this look straight uptown with a pretty shade of white like our True Romance Ivory Lace Dress and a pair of heels or city sandals like the City Classified Saloma White and Gold Ankle Strap Sandals. Chic gold and rhinestone accessories will step up this ladylike look in a heartbeat.

MusicLuLu*s Weekend Playlist: Totally 90s!

nineties

We don’t know about you, but we are still totally in love with the 90s! The flannel, the platforms, and the awesome music! This week, we were feeling a little nostalgic and wanted to share some of our favorite rad tunes from the decade. We definitely danced around the office to each and every one of these songs, and yes, we still know ALL the words! Have fun, LuLu*s loves!

“Hey Jealousy” – Gin Blossoms

“Torn” – Natalie Imbruglia

“Semi-Charmed Life” – Third Eye Blind

“Bittersweet Symphony” – The Verve

“Closing Time” – Semisonic

Have any 90s favorites you want to share with us? We’d love to hear!

CelebrityGwen Stefani, The No Doubt Years

I love Gwen Stefani. I always have and always will.
I remember stealing my sister’s Tragic Kingdom album (and later her Return of Saturn album) and doing my best to memorize every lyric, and I even tried to pay homage to her at school by wearing a bindi . . . but admittedly I can’t pull it off as well as Gwen.
So when news broke that the band No Doubt would be releasing their first album in over a decade, I got suuuuuper excited, to say the least! So excited, I decided to share my look back at 90′s (and early 2000s) Gwen and her amazing sense of style.
Love. Love. Love. I suddenly have the urge to dye my hair pink, and Gwen’s tiny shirts are still a classic! Of course, we can’t leave this post without No Doubt’s number one hit, Just a Girl.
Anyone else exicted for No Doubt’s return? Let us know in the comments!
