I’m living on such sweet nothing

30 Mar

If the rest of the year is as amazing as the month of March was I’m going to have the best year of my life! Firstly, March 1-3 I attended a Jivamukti Yoga retreat in Upstate New York. It was peaceful, enlightening and I saw the light and decided to become a vegetarian and any excess weight I was holding melted right off. As a result of changing my diet I felt better, lighter and my skin looks great. If  your ever in New York, check out JIVAMUKTI in Union Square and take every class given by Jules Febre and Narayani. They are the best and bringing out the best in you! I wish I could retreat every month.

That was a fantastic start to the month. One of my closest friends Ava Lee Scott is an actor in the celebrated play Sleep No More

UnknownShe decided to join forces with GIRL BE HEARD(http://girlbeheard.org) which is an organization that helps girls that have been sex trafficked and have been abused by giving them a voice in their theater company. The beautiful girls from GIRL BE HEARD performed songs, monologues and mini plays in the Sleep No More Space. I was lucky enough to be a sponsor and make the girls Lila Juliet headbands.

If you follow my blog you know I LOVE vintage everything.  I’ve been buying vintage in order to sell it on http://www.lilajuliet.etsy.com but I’ve been procrastinating.  But not this month! My sweet, beautiful friend Sam offered to model for me and my friend Sima did her make up. If you’re in the New York area and you need your makeup done contact her

This was the beautiful result

MOD Vintage look of the Day from the 1960’s-Inspired by Sophia Loren

20 Apr

My favorite actress of all time is Sophia Loren. Im just in love with the 1960’s old Hollywood look. Hair was always perfectly curled and clothing was so feminine. Girls got dressed up just to go the supermarket. My friends make fun of me for taking 30 minutes getting ready when all we are doing is going to Trader Joes. I dont care because I want to feel good when Im out and Im sure Sophia Loren would approve of me looking my best.

I hope these pics inspired some fashionistas out there. I was looking around on etsy and found some great mod looks.

GLOBAL ROACH-Giving a Voice to the Voiceless

14 Apr

I know this is a fashion blog but I really think it is of great importance to let you know of a really great project my friend Alba Albanese is working on. Alba is from New York and she is a trained actress, producer, dancer and a million other things. She decided to give a video camera to two boys in Brazil and to let them show us their world through their eyes.  When I hear “Brazil, I think of a paradise, I dream of sandy beaches and walking around in a bathing suit all day. It’s true, you can do all of that in Brazil and it is a beautiful place and I recommend you visit but there’s also another side to this magical place that you wont see in a brochure or in a commercial.

Most of us live pretty comfortable lives in comparison with the rest of the world. We are all so worried about our clothes, hair, rent, jobs and other things that aren’t really important in the grand scheme of things. There are people literally struggling to stay alive every single day.

In Albas words this is a summary of this documentary-

In RioRoach, We follow two boys in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the first part of the Documentary Series entitled GlobalRoach.


They tell their stories and take us where cameras can’t go, they show us their world.
YOU WONT SEE THIS IN THE NEWS!
THIS IS NOT A FILM!
It’s the lives of real people; TOLD by THEM, SHOT by THEM.
Some images a graphic; several people in this documentary were murdered after we shot their stories. It’s the reason they were willing to let us in…a cry for help.
THEIR VOICES ARE NOT HEARD!!!!
HERE, today, some are gone but their VOICES REMAIN!!!!
Giving a VOICE to the VOICELESS!!!
Please be brave to hear it.

I found the hottest Vintage Military Jacket on ETSY by JoulesVintage.

7 Apr

So as always I have to keep up with my Etsy site. I handcraft and sell silk headbands with embellishments. After I updated the LILAJULIET site I started looking around for jackets. I totally fell in love with this one from Joules Vintage. I can’t get enough of her ETSY store. She has vintage everything!

Joules Vintage $45

I love the fit on this jacket. Check out the awesome slimming effect on the waistline. Imagine the possibilities. If your daring you can wear with just black tights and heels.

Phillip Lim offers a great military jacket for $660

Look at Kat Von D’s fitted jacket.

Enjoy,

Rihanna’s Gorgeous Big Bow Headband Recreated!! by Lila Juliet

15 Mar

So I was skimming through the internet and saw Rihanna with this gorgeous headband and I had to have it.  This look is great with your hair pulled up in a messy bun. So check this out and let me know what you think. Lately Ive been seeing alot of the BOW craze and I love it. Im excited about all of this 80’s inspired fashion. I feel like Im in elementary school again but this time Im able to do it right by wearing whatever the hell I want. So Im walking out of my apartment in my red mini frilly polka dot skirt and with a  big red bow placed on the side. Ala Katy Perry.

XOXO.

Rihannas big bow headband!

Love her or hate her Paris Hilton has fashion sense.

4 Mar
Okay, so yes, were all sick of Paris Hilton, but damn the girl does have style. I have to admit it. If I were an heiress I’d me wearing whatever the hell I wanted. I’d walk the streets in sequined dresses and 4 inch heels. Wait, my friends in New York can already attest to me wearing the very outfit I just described. I guess you don’t have to be an heiress to dress how you want.  Life is short if you want to make an entrance in a crazy outfit, DO IT!   Paris really has some show stopping outfits that I love. She just celebrated her 29th birthday party in Vegas and wore this one shoulder white mini.
I have put together a bunch of my favorite Paris outfitts. Love her or hate her, the girl has style or her stylist has style. Or maybe my  move from New York to California is starting to affect me. Shes actually really popular here in California.  What can we do, it looks like Paris is here to stay. Either way, here it is…

Love the whole outfit
