FashionRetro Fox: Jane Birkin

The effervescent young Jane Birkin (English-born actress and singer) was the essential Euro “It Girl” of the sixties and seventies. Often appearing with her dapper LTR, Serge Gainsbourg, this stylish lass has a photographic repertoire virtually unseen in the time period. Known for her racy antics, her timeless appeal can be attributed to a soft smile, coveted hair and a perfect taste for gorgeous fashion.

FashionBlogger Spotlight: Erin of Calivintage


Ahhh, Blogger Spotlight time!! My favorite day of the week to feature the web’s best bloggers. I have been following this blog for more than two years, and Erin of Calivintage is definitely one of the most polished and put-together ladies in the blogosphere. Flawlessly combining vintage and modern, Erin has an eye for color combos that pop, ladylike dresses, and skirts as well as dreamy and beautiful bay area locations in which to shoot. Let’s take a look at some of her best outfits below.

Ummm…perfect color combo! This is the kind of outfit I will “pin” or bookmark in order to refer to great colorblocking later when I need inspiration. 

So girlie and cute with just the perfect amount of vintage inspiration. Who doesn’t love a polka dot blouse with a big bow?! 


Ahhh-mazing and playful. Wearing our Tulle Fire Look Out Jacket, Erin is ready to battle any chilly afternoon!

Cat-eyed perfection complete with a pop of color and a dreamy sunflare to complete the photo.

I love the rich mustard and bright red to accent our Tea at Three Polka Dot Dress! A classic shape pump really brings out the vintage look of this tea-length dress!

My favorite combo! Tortoise cat-eye sunnies, red shift dress, and blush blouse is just the best!

So cute! This outfit is so cute with the little floral vintage tie and high waisted skirt.

Always a fan of 60s-shaped dresses, this was an obvious choice for me to feature amongst favorites. Add a pair of vintage Salvatore Ferragamo flats and some maroon tights and you have an outfit I have worn variations of for at least ten years and will continue to do so for at least 30 more!
Make sure to check out Erin’s blog! She is super sweet and just full of inspiration!

FashionBlogger Spotlight: Katie of Skunkboy Creatures

Welcome to another spotlight on one of our favorite bloggers! Katie from Skunk Boy Creatures is not only the most adorable doll I have seen lately, but she MAKES dolls as well! This artistic and crafty young mom has the absolute cutest blog! With the rosiest cheeks and the sweetest of vintage dresses, Katy has captured many a heart here at! Take a look below for some of my favorite shots from Katie’s blog!
 Not only me but a few others around LuLu*s HQ began seriously considering changing their haircolor to the likes of Katie’s! We are such a fan of the pretty shade of red although not sure anyone can pull it off quite like she can!
One of the things that originally drew me to Katie’s blog was her love for vintage. As a life long lover of all things vintage, I can relate! This picture has some adorable vintage-inspired frames in the background and I love her perfect peter pan collar!
Here is a one of Katie’s adorable creatures that she creates and sells on her site! Doing custom orders for weddings and gifts, these handcrafted, sweet animal-friends make an occasion extra special and memorable. I have thought about getting one for my niece (or myself!) for quite a bit and I must say, these particluar dolls seem to carry a special quality. Almost as if they have a little soul behind their sad, button eyes! They are my absolute favorite!
Sweet pink plaid and matching barettes!
I love the attention to detail and the sweet pink hearts!
Making basics look sweet and pulled together!
Omg, are you kidding? This sitting fawn is just perfect!
Always a fan of a good cape, this is perfectly paired with mustard tights and wedges!
Super cute red heels!
Just to top off this cute overload, take a look at Katie’s youngest, Poesy! I mean, if that isn’t the cutest baby ever then I just give up.

Make sure to stop by Katie’s blog to say hello and to get a dose of a super sweet and adorable plush-makin mama!

FashionBlogger Spotlight: Liz of Late Afternoon

Welcome to another round of Blogger Spotlight! Liz of Late Afternoon is one of my favorote spots to head over to when I am in need of some fashion inspiration! Mixing flowing skirts and tailored separates is just one of her many talents, in addition to always having fantastic hair and makeup to accompany her many fabulous outfits. Take a look below for some of my favorite photos of Liz!
 I love this pairing of neautrals and a denim top! So chic and simple with perfect proportions.

Tailored and sleek red pants demand your full attention while a black and white striped top provide a graphic element to offset the bright hue!
I love this playful ensemble Liz wore to Disney Land. It is almost Fairy-esque and topped off with super fun sequined mouse ears this outfit is definitely smile-worthy.
 Great example of layering and use of color and pattern.
 Worn at this weeks Magic Convention, Liz stands out in playful polka dots and a girly-cute skirt!
My personal favorite of this group of photos, this vintage inspired pattern is perfectly played up with a bright turquoise clutch and amazing peach sunglasses. 
Amazing stripes and a boater hat are perfect for a day at the marina!
