FashionLooks We Love: Kick Off Your Heels!

I’ve pulled enough barefoot-on-the-dance-floor moments in my lifetime to truly appreciate a great pair of sparkling sandals. Those 6″ stilettos look great in a picture, but after about five minutes, my dogs are a-barkin’! So I say, away with the pain! Let’s follow in the flip-flop’d footsteps of starlets like Uma Thurman and Elizabeth Olsen, who prove that flat is fabulous!

Bejeweled sandals are totally in right now, and our selection here at LuLu*s is fancier than ever. Short date? Problem solved. And unlike those black-tie-only evening gowns and poof-tastic bridesmaid dresses, this special occasion staple dresses down in a snap. Just add denim, and you really can wear them again and again and again…

FashionTrend Alert: J’Adore D’Orsay

As sexy as a bikini for your feet, these two-piece pumps and flats are equal parts classic and on-trend. This style has been around since the turn of the 19th century, but that doesn’t mean this arch-bearing archetype can’t have a major moment in the modern world. So air out those arches and make room for some delightful d’Orsay shoes!

CelebrityElizabeth Olsen for Bullett Magazine

In a pale pink wig, rocking delectable designer confections (that Balmain dress! *swoon*), among a paler than pastel backdrop, indie darling Elizabeth Olsen is straight out of a dream world. As if I didn’t already adore her enough, the interview that accompanies this ethereal photo shoot is chock full of little gems like this: “If I were an older man and I saw a girl my age, who maybe didn’t know herself that well, I would find her so unappealing… But when I see a woman in her 40s and up, I think, God, you know a lot. One day, I’ll get to be desired like you.

FashionAlessandra Ambrosio for Vogue Brazil

Who wouldn’t love being styled in Lanvin, Moschino and Balmain while frolicking on the shores of Santa Monica beaches? Calgon take me away… right? Alessandra Ambrosio transforms into a retro-babe in wild prints, big bold sunnies and a very mad men-esque auburn ‘do for this Vogue Brazil shoot appropriately titled, California Dreamin’.

DIYDIY: Rihanna’s Pearly Chanel Sunglasses

Shine bright like a diamond in these Rihanna-inspired sunnies, and save yourself the Chanel price tag with supplies you can score for under $10 at your local craft store.

All you need are a cute pair of circular sunglasses, a string of (faux) pearls, and a little jewelry glue (or cheat with a glue gun; we won’t tell!).

Helpful tip: when you trim your string of pearls to fit your frames, skip the knot and dab a dot of glue on the end instead. We’ve all seen what happens when pearls hit the floor….
