FashionBehind the Scenes: The Spring Lookbook! Part Two

You asked for it and here they are, more behind the scenes photos from the Spring Lookbook! These photos are from the Pattern Play, and my personal favorite, Little Lolita. Above, our model Rachel poses with her lollipop while Marty adjusts some settings on his camera.
Here are the cupcakes Siobhan and I made the night before the shoot, don’t they look gorgeous? They were a delicious treat after the shoot as well!
Here is the enchanting Wase keeping warm, goofing around, and hanging out around set. 
That’s it for the behind the scenes of the Spring Lookbook, but do not fret, my little Lulu-Cuties. We are working hard at the Summer Lookbook as I speak, and I will have more behind the scenes footage and photos for you oh-so-soon!

FashionThe LOOKBOOK Behind the Scenes VIDEO!!!

You guys asked for more behind the scenes, so Cara, (our lovely lady stylist) threw this video together from the footage taken on her iPhone while we were shooting our Lookbook!

Of course Cara (who is also a music guru) picked out a great song for the video by Matt AND Kim called Daylight from their album the Grand.

Remember to keep posted tomorrow for more behind the scenes pictures and next week we’ll be featuring the entire photo studio so that you’ll know all about who is putting on your favorite images!

FashionBehind the Scenes: The Spring Lookbook! Part One

Our spring lookbook is finally launched, letting all you ladies in on some of the best trends Spring 2010 has to offer! The creative team here at put a lot of effort into getting this done and it has definitely paid off. Now I get to show you some of my exclusive behind the scenes photos from the shoots!

Here is Siobhan and Nyala primping our model Laura at an old movie theatre in downtown Chico, which was used for Discreet Charm!
Above is our local burrito joint used for Geek Chic!
Kyndrah and Marty Crosley, our wonderful photographer, were hard at work…and playing with their cameras. My bike also made a cameo in this shoot!


Be sure to keep updated for more behind the scene photos, as well as profiles on our models and photographer are coming this week!!

BeautyLove the Look: A Whimsical Updo

It all started with my desk mate and fellow blogger, Sienna.

Her long, curly locks were artistically pined up in twisted strands at the top of her head. In the midst of this gorgeous brunette nest, she had pinned a darling bird figurine perched next to two robin’s eggs. Amazing.

Then it was the girl at my favorite coffee shop, who had fashioned several blooming flowers behind her ear with her hair all piled off to the side in quirky but darling manner.

I coined it: The Whimsical Updo.

The thing I love about this hair style is that anything goes. A scrap of your favorite ribbon, an elegant peacock feather, a string of pearls, fresh picked flowers … just pin them on and attain instant “fairy tale princess” status. The more creative and cute, the better.

Let your hair go naturally wavy or add some body and texture with a sea salt spray. Pile randomly on the top of your crown and secure with a mound of bobby pins. Garnish as desired.

FashionModel Profile Olivia!!

And now I am here to introduce Olivia. Olivia is one of our beautiful, charming, and oh soooooo sweet models! If we were to give a Miss Congeniality award it would most definitely go to this Lulus lady!

I had a moment earlier today to see what Olivia’s life was like outside of working at

Olivia is originally from San Francisco (my favorite city in the U.S) and she moved to Chico to attend Chico State University. At Chico State she is studying English Literature. Olivia’s favorite food is Thai food because she is an avid vegetarian.

On her free time Olivia can be found breaking hearts around town with her best friend, Kyndrah (below is a pic of them together), who is also one of our models and who we featured on the blog a little while ago.

And here are a few pictures of Olivia modeling at a fashion show that I thought were especially pretty!
