Etienne Marcel Denim

This brand set out to revise the rules of modern denim by refining the elemental fabric itself. Exclusively crafted from fine European textiles, Etienne Marcel jeans assert a distinctive, vogue spirit by mashing up unexpected prints with rock-and-roll edge, and every pair zips with a signature French flag pull.  Our favorite?  Camo Multi Zip Pocket Jeans!  These military-inspired jeans are made with a stretchy lightweight fabric and gain a glamorous edge from prominent front zips, 5-pocket styling, single-button closure and zip fly.    Get them here

IRO

Founded in 2004 by brothers Laurent and Arik Bitton, Parisian brand IRO infuses casual essentials with a contemporary twist. A collision of slouchy shapes, edgy minimalist design and deluxe fabrics form the basis of IRO’s approach.  The collection is full of M.O.D. slouchy staples in luxurious fabrics and a few dangerously sexy pieces that are to die for.   No wonder that the line is a beloved staple in Europe and a favorite for fashion plates like Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and Ginnifer Goodwin. As if these accolades weren’t enough, recently IRO got the ultimate seal of approval via a personal order placed by none other than Kate Moss herself. (She is the ultimate fashion bellwether; as Glossy Mossy goes, so goes the fashion world!)

One of our favorites from the collection...Zeitna Skinny Jeans!   With a light denim wash and intentionally distressed areas, they make the perfect “go to” pair of jeans for any girl’s wardrobe.  Find IRO Zeitna Skinny Jeans at LulaMaeStyle.com.

Flash Tattoos – The Hottest Summer Trend

Last July Miranda Burnet introduced Flash Tattoos after becoming inspired in Dubai when she noticed the big trend was 24-karat temporary tattoos. This Texas native decided to create something similar without the hefty price tag.

Flash tattoos are now the hottest accessory of the season. Designed to look like bracelets, necklaces and beach bling, Flash Tattoos are this summer’s style upgrade. These chic temporary tattoos are popular among celebs, the surfer set and those with a bohemian flair.  What makes this flash tattoo art so trendy are the wild and shiny detail and the fact that they are non-toxic and safe for anyone to wear. All flash tattoos pass safety standards for the cosmetic and toy product industries and meet all U.S. and international regulatory requirements.

The collections are exclusively designed in gold, silver and black, but Ms. Burnet said that she hopes to introduce fluorescent colors soon.

Find a variety of Flash Tattoos at LulaMae Boutique and LulaMaeStyle.com.   Below Alessandra Ambrosio and Vanessa Hudgens are seen showing off their adornments.

Spring 2014 Fashion Must Haves

Winter has certainly overstayed it’s welcome this year so we are more excited than EVER to shed that cashmere and tight spandex for something a little more lightweight, fun and flirty!  Easy to wear, ultra-chic styles in bold prints and luxe textures are plentiful this season.  We are here to help!  Straight from the Spring 2014 runways, LulaMae brings you the must-haves in designer fashion for Spring…

THE ULTRA COOL BOMBER JACKET

As you may have noticed, the bomber jacket is having a bit of a fashion moment. Always a great layering piece with effortless, ready to wear style.   Bomber jackets tend to be more relaxed and boxy so they can come across as slightly more masculine. To style them in a more feminine way, wear them over dresses and skirts or by choosing jackets in light, pastel shades.  A cropped style jacket is perfect for wearing with high waisted skirts and pants as it shows off your waistline.  Below is a lightweight chambray bomber by Bella Dahl – find it here at LulaMaeStyle.com

http://www.lulamaestyle.com/bella-dahl-bomber-jack…

WIDE-LEG TROUSERS

Easy to wear, wide-leg trousers were a huge hit on the spring runways.  Contrary to popular belief, this trend can be worn by women less than 6 feet tall (trust us).  Just look for higher waisted styles that will elongate your frame and go leaner on the flare.  The hem should skim the ground, revealing just the tips of your shoes (this may require alterations). Pair with a tee for a casual weekend brunch or with a blouse and blazer for a dressier occasion.  LulaMae LOVES these fold over linen pants by Fresh Laundry in grey:

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

This fiery hue has been spotted all over the spring 2014 runway shows, making its way from the lips to clothes, bags, and shoes.  Make those white jeans POP this season with a gorgeous shirt tail button down in orange peel from Bella Dahl

FANTASTIC FLORALS

Always a spring favorite, floral prints flooded the runways again this season!  Florals will forever be considered the embodiment of spring and femininity.   Around this time of the year they are taking the form of light-as-air dresses, exquisite gowns, tailored suits, flowy skirts and silky jumpsuits.  A few of our favorites are the For Love & Lemons Daytripper Dress in black floral, the Tolani Skylar Blouse, and the Isla James Camille Bikini in floral…
