FashionFriday Style ICON: Iris Apfel

When I was living in NYC, I happened upon an exhibit featuring an eccentric fashion icon named Iris ApfelThe exhibit was called Rare Bird, a title that only begins to describe the collection of clothes that were on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

I became enamored with Iris — along with half of New York City, I presume — and was recently thinking back on the experience with awe. Then the other day, I found this GREAT video of Iris being interviewed and filmed while shopping.

My favorite thing about Iris Apfel is that she views fashion with so much energy and shows no fear in doing what she wants with it! 

 

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!
