FashionLooks We Love: Fringe-y Feet

For months I’ve watched the stacks of my very favorite shoes sell out, come back, then sell out, then come back in stock AGAIN… and I must say, the proof is in the pudding: fringe-y feet are here to stay! Not a day goes by without several pairs of fringe booties/sandals/wedges/heels struttin’ by on the lovely LuLu*s ladies here. But really, can you blame us?

FashionFilm to Fashion: The Amazing Spider-Man

It’s finally here! The Amazing Spider-Man hit theatres just last week, and whether you’ve seen it and want to express your newfound spidey style senses, or you need something webby to wear to your own personal premiere, here are the perfect picks for your Peter Parker-approved, web-biest wardrobe additions:

 

FashionLooks We ♥: Patterned Platforms

 
Now that sandal season is upon us, allow me to introduce my latest and greatest obsession: the patterned platform.
 


Prada hit the nail on the head last spring (below), and Charlotte Olympia followed suit this year (above), with her simplicity up top and whimsical prints below. How cute is that sheet music!



Now, we’ve been acquiring quite the collection here at LuLu*s, so just try and resist the printiest platforms of all!

FashionTrend Alert: Phantom Heels

Chunky, stiletto, cone, kitten… I thought we’d seen it all. Until, of course, there was nothing at all to see! The heelless platform, or phantom heel as I’ve affectionately come to call it, is no longer a magical foot-piece reserved for the theatrical likes of Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj. The cool curved back has been popping up all over, from red carpet to sidewalk, and not just as a crazy Halloween gag. The phantom heel has made it mainstream, so stock up on a pair of your own!
I’m pretty sure Daphne Guinness was born in these….


If you’re looking for real world inspiration, then check out Eteclea. This girl rocks the phantoms like it’s nothing.
