NewsModel Pick of the Week: Lulea Vest & Cute as a Button Shrug

Wow! We are working hard here at Lulus.com getting ready for the Fall season. New shipments are coming in every day with cozy items for the impending cold weather.

We had two favorites this week, the first picked by our model Michelle, seen below wearing the Lulea Vest [sold out!]. This vest has those great zippers that have been so hot this season, combined with a vintage feel from the great vegan fur and leather.

The second item is the Cute as a Button Shrug [sold out!]. Brittany, our marvelous customer service rep (who doubles as a personal shopper if you ever need some advice ;) ) put it perfectly: “Put buttons on a scarf and it is everything. It just makes so much sense!”

Talk about snuggle time! This shrug works as a scarf, vest, sleeves, jackets, etc., etc., a perfect wear all. Kendra, below, is showing but a few of the various ways to wear this bad boy. 

Until next week, fashion bugs!

FashionSilver Screen Fashion: Katherine Heigl in The Ugly Truth

Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl lit up the screen in their just released hit, The Ugly Truth. While these hot stars wowed the audience with their passionate salsa dancing and witty banter, one thing was clear: Katherine Heigl’s wardrobe stole the show.

This romantic comedy sure had the audience rolling with laughter, but it also kept my roomate and I enthralled with the gorgeous garments Katherine Heigl’s character, Abby Richter, sported in different scenes. A romantically challenged yet gorgeous producer, Abby expressed her classic taste and need for casual work wear through her choice of outfits.

And of course there were those special occasions to satisfy our need for show-stoping dresses: a form-fitting beige dress with an exposed zipper in back sported during the aforementioned salsa scene, a little black dress donned post-makeover, and an elegant cream dress with a draped v-neck and high waisted belt worn during a dinner meeting. 

Now, you can steal Heigl’s look with similar items on LuLu*s! Take for instance, the oh-so-sexy little black dress that made Gerard Butler’s character, Mike, so weak in the knees. Our Heart Throb Dress in Black [sold out!] is similar in style and shape. A svelte, form-fitting bodice and a sweetheart neckline will have you all glammed up in no time.

With a busy schedule and a news program to get on the air, Abby also needed to stay on track and on time for meetings, deadlines, not to mention her date with the hot orthopedic surgeon, and she did it all with her sweet little pocket watch necklace! Get a similar look with our Wild Goose Pocket Watch Necklace in Brushed Brass [sold out!] for punctual prettiness!


If you share a love of great fashion, Gerard Butler’s rugged good looks and a spiced up romantic tale, then you’ll love The Ugly Truth.

See the movie, get the style, and always be your own leading lady.

FashionHot Trend: Zippers

Not only are zippers functional, but fashionable too. Exposed metallic zippers are now taking center stage on the runway, and the verdict is in: Zip is Hip!


Zippers, once subtly hidden and ignored, are now one of the hottest fashion trends to be had this season. Adding a fun metallic edge, these zippers can be found adorning purses, shoes, jeans, dresses, and even jewelry. Some don’t even require having a purpose, but exist simply to satisy your appetite for edginess and fun.

From the runway to stars on the go, the zipper trend is making its way to your closet. Now, you can find some hot zipper items at Lulus.com.

Our Rebel Rebel Zipper Dress [sold out!] utilizes sleek metallic zippers atop a satiny black dress for a rebellious but pretty look. Our Anne Michelle Snobby Black Lizard and Gold Zipper Pump [sold out!] will make sure you step into this trend with style. Don’t forget our Alley Cat Handbag [sold out!], so you can easily add the zipper trend to any outfit.

Clearly ladies, it’s time to zip it!
