FashionBehind the Scenes: The Spring Lookbook! Part One

Our spring lookbook is finally launched, letting all you ladies in on some of the best trends Spring 2010 has to offer! The creative team here at Lulus.com put a lot of effort into getting this done and it has definitely paid off. Now I get to show you some of my exclusive behind the scenes photos from the shoots!

 
Here is Siobhan and Nyala primping our model Laura at an old movie theatre in downtown Chico, which was used for Discreet Charm!

Kyndrah and Marty Crosley, our wonderful photographer, were hard at work…and playing with their cameras. My bike also made a cameo in this shoot!
 

 

Be sure to keep updated for more behind the scene photos, as well as profiles on our models and photographer are coming this week!!

BeautyLove the Look: A Whimsical Updo

It all started with my desk mate and fellow blogger, Sienna.

Her long, curly locks were artistically pined up in twisted strands at the top of her head. In the midst of this gorgeous brunette nest, she had pinned a darling bird figurine perched next to two robin’s eggs. Amazing.

Then it was the girl at my favorite coffee shop, who had fashioned several blooming flowers behind her ear with her hair all piled off to the side in quirky but darling manner.

I coined it: The Whimsical Updo.

The thing I love about this hair style is that anything goes. A scrap of your favorite ribbon, an elegant peacock feather, a string of pearls, fresh picked flowers … just pin them on and attain instant “fairy tale princess” status. The more creative and cute, the better.

Let your hair go naturally wavy or add some body and texture with a sea salt spray. Pile randomly on the top of your crown and secure with a mound of bobby pins. Garnish as desired.

NewsTac of the Town: Jeffrey Campbell Tick

The long awaited Jeffrey Campbell Tick [sold out!] has finally made its way to Lulus.com! 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!

Below you find the Valerie Floral Tank by Alternative Apparel with our new Zooey Bow Earrings by Claire Fong, Divine Rights of Denim jeans, and boots topped off with the Somber Brown Fedora by Brixton, all from Lulus.com.
