I caught some girls lookin oh-so fine today at work, so I’d thought I’d share their Lulus.com outfits with everyone!
On the left is the December Love Story Tunic.
In the middle is the Sandmaiden Blush Pink Jumpsuit.
And Last but not least we have the Inertia Black Feather Earrings.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!

Treat your eyes with everything from delicate and romantic maxi dresses, to the hot and wild trends of the 1980′s. Check out what some hot celebrities are doing with their vintage collections:
Isn’t Chloe Sevigny just a peach in her soft vintage look?

New Lulu*s Vintage. . .Your Fashion Picnic:
We all have certain expectations of what will happen at your typical holiday party: sipping eggnog and nibbling on sugar cookies in the shape of Christmas trees, exchanging presents in Secret Santa swaps, enduring annoying questions about your boyfriend from your aunt and grandma. (Well, maybe that’s just me.)
Whatever your typical party looks like, I think it’s high time we shook up the holiday season with a bit of creativity. A major fan of dressing up, I’m always looking for that next big event to get clever with your look. Why not the holidays?
IDEA #1: A Mad Men Themed Party
I just love this idea featured on Basket of Kisses, a blog devoted to all things Mad Men. As a work party idea, the Arkansas Advertising Agency, Cranford Johnson Robinson Woods all dressed up as characters from the hit drama. Everyone looks just like their Mad Men counterpart, down to a tee.
I think this party would translate perfectly into a holiday theme. What could be more glamorous than a 60′s updo and a high class cocktail? Dibs on Joan! If you love this pic, check out the Mad Men Holiday Card idea on vintage hair and makeup guru, Lauren Rennells’s Bobby Pin Blog.
IDEA #2: Ugly Christmas Sweater Party with Family Portraits
The ugly Christmas sweater party idea has been growing in popularity during the holiday season, and believe it or not, I have yet to attend one (hint, hint). It’s fairly easy to do if you think about it.
Visit your local thrift store and find the ugliest, cheesiest, most hideous Christmas sweater you can. Some may have smiling reindeer and snowman. Some even have twinkling Christmas lights and tinsel. The more outrageous, the better!
And to top it all off, why not take a fun group photo to send out to all your relatives? I can’t help but smile when I look at these two portraits by Seattle-based photographer, John Keatley. Visit his blog to read the funny stories behind them!
Overall, the idea is not classy by a long shot, but hey, we’re always dressing up to look better, so why not make yourself look as awkward and dorky as possible. There’s definitely some charm to that.
Happy Holidays Lulu*s fans! What cool holiday party ideas do you have?
How did you get into snowboarding?
Started off skiing, saw how much fun snowboarding was, then shortly after I traded in my skis for a board. It was a hobby that turned into something way more amazing.
When did you first realize that it was your “thing”?
I guess I realized it after the first couple days I was learning. I wanted to keep riding, better my skills and explore the awesome sport.
Where did you grow up? Where is your favorite place to board?
I grew up in Southern California, mostly in Woodland Hills, Topanga Canyon and Marina Del Rey. Big Bear Lake is my home mountain and will always be my favorite place to ride. Brighton in Utah is also a favorite of mine.

Where are your favorite places to travel or your favorite place that you have been to?
My favorite places to travel are Iceland, Japan and being back home with my family. Favorite places I have been to are Iceland, Japan, New Orleans, Berlin and Barcelona.
What are some of your other hobbies? What kind of music do you listen to?
I like to watch movies, read, and paint, draw on restaurant napkins, act, model, play sports, skateboard and so much more. I like to listen to a wide variety of music. Such as, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Devendra Banhart, Devotchka, Velvet Underground, Hendrix, The Beatles, Billie Holiday, my dads music; Rufus and Chaka Khan, Sly and Family Stone. The list is endless.
What gets you pumped up?
All the little things get me pumped … string cheese, applesauce, or even seeing an old friend randomly at the grocery store. It doesn’t take much to get me excited, or happy.
What is one of your best boarding experiences?
Riding every day with all my friends is a freshly new and fun boarding experience.
How did you get into Nikita clothing? How would you describe your style or what you look for in clothes?
I started riding/modeling for them since I was 18 and its been a perfect match ever since. My style is I guess a retro mix of funky. It depends on my mood, but mostly, my style is from the 60’s and 70’s persuasion. I grew up with many musical influences. I just appreciate and prefer the classics.
I shop in thrift stores a lot, reason being, because I don’t like walking down the street and someone saying, “oh I have that shirt in blue!” I’d rather have what no one else has and something that’s of special value, so people would be more like, “Whoa, where did you get that outfit?” instead.
Soooo in the vein of LOVING NIKITA they have sent us “Gift With Purchase Bags” (goodie bags) for every Nikita sale! That means, lovely ladies, that every time you buy a Nikita product from LuLu*s you will receive a FREE goodie bag! Woop Woop! We only have so many of them so you MUST get them while we still have them!
