FashionThe Met Costume Institute Gala and One Shouldered Dresses!!

One of the best galas of the year (or at least one of our personal favorite events) took place this Monday! This fashionista-filled event was none other than the Costume Institute Gala that takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

One major trend that we couldn’t get over was all of the one shoulder dresses. Now this is one trend Lulus.com really loves! 

The appeal in the one shouldered dresses is the one shoulder peeking out and showing off while the other side swoops elegantly across your body to one side.

 

Left, Blake Lively wears a Marchesa blue one shouldered dress, and on the right, Melissa George wears a rusted yellow J. Mendel. Both ladies looked ravishing while walking down the red carpet.

  

Below are two of Lulu*s one shoulder dresses, and we have many more! Take a look, I’m sure you’ll love them too!

  

On the left is the Cerise Blossom Dress and on the right it is the I Feel Pretty Dress in Aqua!

CelebrityHow Dita Does Coachella

Dita Von Teese, queen of burlesque and hot retro style, took in the sights and sounds of this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Dita spent the three-day event looking flawless in a variety of outfits that adapted retro glamour for life under a sunny desert sky.

(Left): I am in love with Dita’s nautical-style, high-waisted trousers. Her updo is also rockin’, managing a put-together look that is also casual.

 

(Above): From the mary jane wedges to the layers of bangles, this is Dita’s awesome version of boho beauty. I love all the earthy tones on that tropical print dress!


(Above): Ladylike charm is what it’s all about in this look. Soft satin ruffles, that polished hat and a pretty chain purse keep Dita looking elegant. Psssst, recognize that lovely lady with her? Yep, it’s Katy Perry looking day-glo pretty.

What was your favorite Dita look?

FashionTrend Report: Icy and Cool

There are always tons of parties and benefits going on, and you know that that means lots of celebrities wearing really cool clothes! Here, Gwyneth Paltrow stepped into the Bent on Learning Benefit in this icy cool and sparkling mini dress. The Bent on Learning Benefit is working toward bringing yoga into NYC’s public schools.

Check out Style.com’s picks of the event for more.

This icy trend seems fitting for any night that you don’t want to fuss with too many colors. Just step into a metallic grey draped dress and some killer black high heels and you’ll look chic and sleek at the same time.

 

 

I’d recommend the brand new (TODAY) Oxidize It Dress [sold out!] with the Anne Michelle Spicy 01 Black A Caged Girl Sings Pump for your next big night out!!!

CelebrityVAMPIRES AND TRUE BLOOD!!!!

<!–I am finally coming out and admitting that I am a HUGE fan of the television show True Blood. I had not grasped the “cool factor” of the vampire trend until I started watching this show. Now however, I have become enthralled with vampires and True Blood.

In this show, the charming Anna Paquin plays Sookie Stackhouse who is, among other things, a true Southern belle. Sookie is a barmaid at a local restaurant (who happens to be able to read minds) and she falls in love with Vampire Bill when he stops into the restaurant for some “True Blood” (synthetic vampire blood).

Soon enough, the darling and naive Sookie finds herself smack dab in the middle of a human vs. vampire war. Sookie finds herself in a difficult position as a mortal in a war of immortals! However, Sookie manages to stay alive through the second season without becoming a vampire.

I recommend this show for anyone who likes a little bit of action (fighting), a little bit of drama, and of course vampires!! Season three of True Blood premiers June 13th, so remember to watch out for it or for vampires on the loose!

 Sookie is not only pretty but she also wears the cutest floral dresses I’ve yet to see. Here she sits with Bill at a vampire bar in a red and pink floral halter dress. Sookie doesn’t seem to mind that she is the only one that hangs out with vampires that doesn’t wear all black!

For a Sookie Stackhouse look, I’d go for any of our floral sun dresses. The Earth First in Mauve and Black as well as the Prarie Companion Dress would be great choices for a genuine Sookie look!
