Im thrilled that the 50’s are back this SPRING 2012!
I just picked up the new February Elle Magazine with Reese Witherspoon gracing the cover and I just want to be transported to the 1950’s put on a frilly dress and bake a pie. It looks like this Spring Im going to be in heaven (fashion speaking).
For instance, check out this Moschino Cheap and Chic Dress $495

These box bags are from 2010 but I think they work with 50’s style.
Here are some pics just for inspiration!
If you aren’t comfortable dressing 50’s from head to toe, you can just add big sunglasses, retro red lipstick (wet 7 wild has great colors for $1.99) cat eyes, boxed bags and of course a Lila Juliet headband.
I’ll leave you now with a picture of one my favorite style icon.
Have fun being creative with your wardrobe, make up and hair.
My cousin Saray is getting married on November second of this year which is also my birthday! I couldn’t be happier for her. My daughter is going to be a bridesmaid. She is a very excited 11 year old and she’ll be 12 by the wedding. Anyway, I want a very gorgeous, glamorous dress for this occasion. I want a find the perfect dress and have my grandmother Alba who is a professional seamstress to make it for me. I found some that I loved worn by Blake Lively.

So as of now these two dresses are the top contenders for my cousins wedding. I love them, but I tend to love anything this girl wears.
I would wear this to an office all the time. I love this look and its relatively simple. You don’t have to dress it up exactly this way. You can make it more casual in order to suit your normal everyday life.
If I owned this blazer, I think I might wear it everyday.
Okay, so for now Im pretty much done with my rant about Blake Lively’s perfect wardrobe. I will be sure to keep you updated on my new line of Lila Juliet headbands. I’m working on them!
Due to my move 10 months ago from California to New York (which I’m extremely happy about) I left behind my sewing machine which someone promised to mail to me but unfortunately did not. The good news is I bought a new Singer sewing machine at Target and I am INSPIRED. I went to my old NYC spots and purchased a couple of things to get me started. I will have a new ETSY store up in February and I can’t wait. If you guys have any headband ideas that you think are cool or want made please send me a link or suggestions.
I saw some pics of the golden globes and saw that Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams had very pretty headbands on.

Also, I love the show PAN AM, because the girls are dressed so pretty. Check this bright pink headband that Christina Ricci’s character has on. My new line will be a little different from the Lila Juliet headbands from a year ago. Check in and check them out.
