NewsTac of the Town: Jeffrey Campbell Tick

The long awaited Jeffrey Campbell Tick [sold out!] has finally made its way to! This hot number makes a real head turner with its 5″ platform heel covered completely in silver tacks. And I thought they were just used for corkboards…

If you have any doubts about how to style these chic stompers, take a hint from the creative and oh so fashionable bloggers below. Easily paired with dresses, patterned tights and skirts, you’ll want to tac on a little reminder to take these babies home yourself!

Visit the Jeffrey Campbell blog for more shoe buzz.

A Butterfly by Day effortlessly styles the Ticks for winter and summer wear (pictured above).

Here, Cupcakes and Cashmere demonstrates how the shoe can be fancified with feminine lace or dressed down with a simple plaid tunic. 

FashionZooey + Bows = Adorable

I was flipping through Lucky Magazine the other day and was so inspired by this pic I found of Zooey Deschanel in an advertisement for America’s Cotton Producers. I’ve gushed about Zooey’s style before, but I thought I should point out how well she pulls off the bow trend here.

The cute little bows on her feet are a dead ringer for our Chinese Laundry Sweet Caroline Black Jelly Flats that have been literally FLYING off the shelf. I love the idea of a metallic bow necklace as well, which is why I was so

psyched to see the Maybe So Necklace in gold and silver arrive this morning.

Now, the Zooey Bow Earrings below [sold out! but available in Red] have a name not only inspired by Zooey herself, but I’m pretty sure she’d go crazy over them if she happened to stroll into the Lulu*s warehouse one day. :)

FashionCute with CARA!

I caught Cara (our stylist) looking oh so cute last week. Cara was wearing the floral + stripes combo that is on the rise this season!

FashionHats Off to Brixton Hats!

We’ve welcomed a fantastic new brand here at! Meet Brixton, a trendy and hip line of clothes and accessories for both men and women.

We’re lovin’ all the new hats that arrived this week. Seriously, the Somber Brown Fedora has been an office favorite. My personal favorite is the Fiddler Cap in black herringbone. Check out the Parlor Hat and Castor Hat while you’re at it.

Also, take a peek at the product shots on Brixton’s website. I love the way they’re styled for an everyday chic look.

FashionMILAN & Menswear!!

This week, Megan from Milan has given us ladies a trend report on menswear. Menswear should be very important to any fashionista, because it will ultimately influence her clothes as well! Detailing in menswear is often used to inspire women’s clothing, especially as the tomboy look is becoming more and more popular. So here is what Megan has to say about menswear after watching and following the latest fashion shows in Milan!!

Reporting from Milano!

This is for all you girls who dress their guys. Here are some trends that I’ve picked up on during men’s fashion week in Milan:


Maybe it was the economic “crisis” that gave men the need to look tidy for all of those job interviews they have to go on now? Or the sudden surge of military styled clothes could just be the very fact that we are living in a warring generation. So why not embrace the silhouette of the uniform? 


This season there has been a particular focus on the skiing/snowboarding look, which was not only popular here in Italy, but also in Norway. I picked up on this growing trend when I was visiting Norway not long ago. The difference being that Norway had this wonderful BRIGHT color trend! This was so happy and uplifting for menswear, which tends to drown in neutrals and dark colors. 

A “Softer Look” for your guy!

The fabrics here are drifting from the usual and traditional. More and more funky knits are being used to create classic pieces. This gives your guy a more at ease look.

I find all 3 to be totally different looks, but all great trends to embrace because they symbolize power and strength with a fresh new take! And who doesn’t want their guy to display that?

Baci e abbracci!
