ContestsOrchid Grey and LuLu*s Team Up For A Contest!

Very recently, we were lucky enough to pair up with one of our favorite blogger friends, Julie of Orchid Grey, to offer readers a chance to win a $100 shopping spree to Lulus! We asked that readers head over to the fabulous site, Polyvore, to create a collage using LuLu*s items expressing their spring-to-summer style. We had some amazing entries with collages including everything from Jeffrey Campbell to Mink Pink with awesome and colorful accessories in the mix! Sadly, we had to pick just one winner! Based on creativity and thoroughness, Julie and I decided on the collage below by the talented Kaye! This lucky lady will be able to shop ’til she drops with a $100 credit to our site. Check out her colorful and cute collage below for some fabulous summer inspiration.

FashionGuest Post: Jen from JenLovesKev recaps TxSCC!

Hi every one! It’s Jen from Jenloveskev. I just got back from Austin, TX, with Lulus.com and we had a fabulous time at the Texas Style Council Conference. It was seriously one of the most fun weekends ever! I was honored to moderate at the Going Pro panel with LuLu*s and then speak on the panel about Authenticity. Here are a few photos from throughout the weekend.

Friday night I helped set up for the clothing swap, hosted by Swap.com and The Swapaholics!
 
Ready, set, swap. Stuff goes fast. It is super fun finding treasures. 
 
I got to hang out with the lovely Jennine from The Coveted and founder of IFB.
 
You can’t be in Texas without eating some BBQ. I am a vegetarian but enjoyed all the home cooked sides and salads. 
 
Saturday night there was a great party at Bo Concept. LuLu*s had some amazing prizes to give away, and there was a super fun photo booth. Here I am having a blast with Ms. Kendi Everyday.

FashionLuLu*s at The Texas Style Council Conference: Day 2

Time for our coverage of the TxSCC Day 2! On Sunday of our amazing weekend was the Social Media and Style Symposium held at beautiful Ballet Austin. This conference brought industry leaders in blogging, social media, and brands together on speaking panels to give bloggers helpful information on how to work with companies, achieve an authentic voice, how to create a community, and so much more!

 As I said in my wrap-up of Day 1, part of the thrill of this conference was hearing accomplished and admired bloggers speak about their experiences. We were all very excited to hear Keynote speaker Jennine Jacob of The Coveted and IFB fame speak about the importance of social media and how to make the most of your blogging experience. Jennine has an amazing blog and was the founder of the Independant Fashion Bloggers (IFB), a place for bloggers to connect on how to blog successfully. She is a super interesting lady and a dynamic speaker.

Alessandra and I (second from left and far left, respectively) were lucky enough to speak on the Going Pro panel! In the company of talented women such as Elisa from Blogher, Grechen from Grechen’s Closet (also an organizer of the conference), and Patty of Charming Charlie, we were honored by the opportunity. Moderated by our lovely friend Jen from Jen Loves Ken, we answered questions about how bloggers can get sponsored, what we look for in a blog, and other affiliate questions. 

Other panels included topics such as Careers and Longevity. Above we have our Careers panel, which was moderated by our friend Amy of Punky Style! She did a great job, despite admitting to being more nervous about speaking after the amazing Kelly of The Glamourai came to the conference for a suprise visit and guest-spoke on the panel. I assured Amy that no one was more nervous than me; public speaking is super scary! All in all everyone did an amazing job, and we were very lucky to hear the wise words of so many talented ladies and gentlemen. 

Above we have Punky and Kelly posing for a quick shot!

 Speaking on Authenticity we have (left to right, seated) Jen from Jen Loves Kev, Indiana from Adored Austin, and James from Bleu Bird Vintage. This panel, moderated by the lovely Kristina from Pretty Shiny Sparkly, was so interesting because it was all about how to achieve your own “voice” and set yourself apart in a world with so many bloggers and sites. These three talented ladies are especially good at writing in a way that makes their blog something to remember. It’s almost as if their words are leaping off the page in their own voices.

 Above we have Katy from Kansas Couture! I love her lace skirt paired with neutrals, really spring and on trend! Katy added our Steve Madden Propperr Taupe Heels to finish the look. The bows add the perfect lady-like touch!

James from Bleu Bird Vintage (above) has some of my favorite styles! I love how she mixes vintage eras for a look that is completely her own. She is always super cute with out looking like she tried to hard, and that as we all know, is no easy task. James is wearing a pair of shoes from LuLu*s that I was obsessing over forever, the Jeffrey Campbell Duoma’s, sadly now sold out. I really hope they come back soon!

 Here is James with her adorable family. Those are probably the best-dressed kiddos I have seen in quite some time! I love how baby Gemma is saying “Hi!” to the camera!

We wrapped up the weekend partying with Etsy and Burdastyle in Downtown Austin! Tons of fun and dancing! It was a wonderful weekend with so many talented people. Thanks again to the TxSCC for having us! Can’t wait for next year!
