FashionWild Week: Accessories Report

Because cat is where it’s at!

We couldn’t host a week full of leopard-y luxuries without including a few feline-inspired trinkets! Of course the leopard print dress is a must-have for every closet, but sometimes just a touch of animal print is your ticket to ride. Spruce up your shift dresses with an animal print belt and add a matching clutch, or let some adorable catty flats peek out from your favorite wide-leg pants. The results are purrrr-fect!

Shop the look on our exclusive Wild Week page!!!

FashionPrada Takes High Fashion to the Highway

 
 I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been to a few hot rod shows in my day, so when I saw Prada’s Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection, the little girl in the rumble seat inside me let out a little squeal of glee. Finally, fashion that my dad might even appreciate….
 
 
 
All the initial hype I read was totally shoe-centric, and they deserve it, but hello! Look at how great everything is!
 
 
I love how she incorporated the classic car motif in so many ways, yet makes the traditionally masculine concept seem so feminine and sweet. Think muscle car-meets-pin-up, with a little fifties housewife mixed in. Prints, micro prints, racing stripes, flames, and full-on hot rod decals and embroidery… Oh my! And the color palette! Who wants to hop in my ’57 Chevy with me and speed on down to the malt shop? (No, I don’t actually have a ’57 Chevy, or know where you’d find a malt shop nowadays).
 
 
But really, let’s get back to the shoes, am I right? Spoilers, wings, chrome, flames, and even tail lights, plus the occasional bow or jewels? I could gush for hours.

FashionAmazing Grace: Styling the Grace Cowl by Brixton!

Here is my chance to tell you about my favorite new item at Lulu*s.com. It’s the fabulous Grace Cowl by Brixton!

I borrowed one of our beautiful processors, Naiara, to style it for you!


Check out Naiara cozy and hooded for cold weather!

 

You can always go with a regular cowl style, or you can try a nice one-shoulder look.

 

Slide this versatile little piece over the shoulders for a comfy poncho look, or get doubly stylish with an over the head and around the neck twist!

FashionFanny Packs: Hot or Not?

Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Burberry. . . .Madonna!!! It seems that fanny packs have been popping up all over these days!
Celebrities like Rhianna, Reese, and even Madonna are seen totin’ it old school.
 
High fashion runways are taking it below-the-belt and adding chic new versions of what has been viewed as a social pariah since the mid 90′s, and I have to hand it to them. . . it looks good!
 
Retro versions of the old hip sack are being snatched up right and left with the steady advance of 80′s revival.
   
(Doesn’t he look cute?)
 
Check out what Lulu*s has to offer:
   
A new runway worthy version, and a classic vintage find.
