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.

“Torn” – Natalie Imbruglia

“Semi-Charmed Life” – Third Eye Blind

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

FashionVogue Spain & Candice Swanepoel Channel the ’90s

Fashion flashbacks are not always pretty (parachute pants, anyone?), but in the April 2013 issue of Vogue Spain, über babe Candice Swanepoel takes us back; to a grungier time of too-hot crop tops and too-short cut-offs that defined an era. And, boy, does she make it look fabulous! Shot by Mariano Vivanco, this editorial modernizes the classic looks of the ’90s and shows us that grunge never looked so good.

FashionBlogger Spotlight: Severine of The Clothed Chameleon

 
Time for another Blogger Spotlight! I love highlighting my favorite bloggers and showing off their rad style. It is the perfect opportunity to share the best of the best fashion bloggers out there.
I have to admit though, I feel like I am giving away one of my personal secrets right now. As a long time reader of The Clothed Chameleon, I almost didn’t want to share it with anyone because I thought Severine, the girl behind the blog, was that cool. Her style is so perfectly ’90s vintage, dark, and glam. Her blog has been on my personal blog roll forever and I have just been hoarding it all to myself. Sorry guys! What can I say, she is my ultimate favorite when I need fashion inspiration on those drab mornings.
Well, Severine reached out and said hello and asked if we wanted to work with her and I just about fell out of my chair. Of course I said yes and then promptly decided that it was a sign that LuLu*s readers must be exposed, if not already, to her amazing style! 
Are you ready?

Pattern mixing and long dark locks. Are you kidding? Amazing.

Perfect neutrals and bold dark lips.

Floral crowns and flowing sheer fabric, so dreamy.
Looking amazing in our Didn’t Start the Fire black dress and Rock Candy Sunglasses. I love the pastels mixed with the darks of her dress and shoes.
I want this entire outfit. Thank you!
Again, I love the pattern mixing and her perfect peachy makeup.
Hitting a jacket home run. This is an ideal winter ensemble.
Make sure to stop over at Severine’s blog and say hello. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Glad I got that off my chest! Shh, it will be our little secret!
xoxo
