FashionBest Coats for Festive Frocks

LuLus Holly Days Blog Week Header2Coats“Tis the season to bring out your best dresses for holiday parties, family fun, and ringing in the new year; but unless you live someplace extra sunny, the chill may try to chase away your perfectly planned outfit. Thankfully, there is a solution! We’re here to help you discover some of the very best coats to enhance your frocks (instead of hiding them)!

Take your dress an edgy new route with The Wanderer Black Vegan Leather Jacket! The leather look is totally in, and keeping with classic black maintains an upscale look, while infusing your outfit with a fun and sexy vibe. Trust us, you’ll get tons of compliments with this fashion-forward option!

Go for a pop of color with the Cold Remedy Red Coat! If your holiday soiree calls for a LBD or LWD (as so many of them do!) then jazz up your look by choosing this colorful coat. It will help you stand out without compromising the classy ensemble you so carefully put together.

What’s in a name? Everything! Frock coats are simply perfect for warming up your dressiest dresses. A frock coat like the Fur Give and Fur Get Tan Frock Coat keeps it classy, while showing off your shape. The faux fur lining takes this one above and beyond for an elegant look we highly recommend!

FashionTrend to Try: Retro Fascinators

Retro style is making a comeback as girls of the 21st century look back to the days of Hollywood glam for inspiration. The hair and the makeup were always flawlessly and artfully done, and the accessories were ever present.

I love that I spotted a couple retro fascinators paired with cocktail dresses on New Year’s Eve (myself included).  :)   Fascinators can be found in so many fun styles and colors, whether true vintage or just vintage-inspired. And if you need a little example of how to rock the look, Dita Von Teese never fails to impress. As a woman who lives and breathes vintage, she has got the look down.

Feeling inspired? Go ahead and give our Retro Reminisce Fascinator [sold out!] a try for the next time you want to stand out in a crowd.

GeneralHappy New Year from Lulu*s!

 

We hope all of you have a wonderful year in 2010!

FashionNew Year Hot Spot Style: Manuel Antonio National Park

Beach. That is all you need to know about this New Year’s adventure.

But not just any beach. If I were to have my New Year’s way, I would head to the Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica located south of Quepos on the Pacific Coast, 132 km from San José. Tours through the park are available, including a rain forest walk where you might be so lucky as to spy a sloth!

Coastal Manuel Antonio at night is pitch black, being lit only by the moon — perfect for some stargazing. Instead of the big count-down at midnight, I would suggest quietly bringing in the New Year with a few good friends or your sweetie on the sands.

With spring coming, this would be a perfect place to try out next season’s trends: the Pocket Change Necklace in Gold [sold out!], the Silk Arboretum Maxi Dress, and the Bamboo Poetic 04 Gray and Silver WhipStitched T Thong
