~~Nicole Richies Boho headbands and the Walking Dead~~The highlight of my week!

20 Mar

I really don’t watch Fashion Star but I did a double take when I saw Nicole Richie in this gorgeous headband.

I absolutely love this look paired with her multiple bracelets.  She just always seems glamorous but totally comfortable.  Her look is easy and affordable to pull off to.  You can easily find vintage dresses from the 1970’s at your local thrift store or  flowing dresses in Forever 21.

Heres another one of her headpieces I love

Her House of Harlow line is great.  I can’t wait to see what else she comes up with.  You can check out similar looks at

Moving on to the WALKING DEAD

Now Holy hell what the Walking Dead finale was AMAZING!!

Rick killed Shane and I couldn’t be happier but now it seems he’s losing it and becoming Shane-like.

Shane as a zombie

 It’s no longer a democracy.  I feel his frustration.  He’s been trying to do the right thing to just be kicked in the butt over and over again.  I also hope Lori gets bitten soon.  I don’t understand what the writers are doing to her character.

We also finally find out everyones infected.  You can die a natural death and you will become a zombie!

 For me the epic part of the whole finale was literally the last few minutes when Andrea is stranded in the woods and she’s fighting for her life about to be a zombies midnight snack when a hooded figure with two chained zombies comes to her rescue.

Yeah, that image was imprinted in my head for about a day.  I can’t wait to see what these writers come up with next.

Im going to buy the comic book because I just can’t wait until October!

I know this is mostly a fashion blog but every once and while you’ll see a horror posting.  Its my favorite genre!

XOXO,

Lila Juliet and Michelle Andres

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.

Have  a Sweet day!

**Everything Blake Lively wears is perfect and I want to steal all of her clothes****

19 Jan

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!

Have a Sweet night,

Michelle

NYC’s BEST SHOPPING SECRETS. Save your cash and LOOK LIKE Serena and Blair! Seriously.

4 Apr

Lately I’ve been feeling extremely homesick. All I can think about is going to New York and visiting all my best friends. I miss popping into my friend Dahlias home at the Chelsea Hotel and my sewing with my friend Jennifer in College Point Queens. But I really wanted to write this post because I wanted to share my super affordable shopping secrets if you live or happen to be in NYC.  If you dont have Upper East Side money but want to look like you do, KEEP READING. First of all well start with shoes.  Okay, depending on where your at in NYC you may have to take the subway into Queens for these shoes BUT ITS WORTH IT! Why? Because all the shoes in this place are $5, $7 and $15. THATS RIGHT! The shoes don’t look tacky or cheap, they are super super cute!

OKAY, OKAY, I’ll tell you were I got them.

37-39 82nd Street, Jackson Heights 11372

(718)458-4657

Okay, lets move onto clothes. I love new clothes more than anything, but sometimes you just cant afford to pay top dollar for an outfit.  The GOODWILL right  by my old apartment in CHELSEA is amazing.  I promise you’ll find something Amanda Tanen-ish (Ugly Betty) here.

You’ll find items by CALVIN KLEIN, JILL STUART, MARNI, BETSEY JOHNSON, ALICE&OLIVIA and more.  They also have great vintage. I’ve bought a Betsey Johnson Dress for $13 and a Marni shirt for $7. I have the coolest Armani black leather jacket from there that I purchased for $27 dollars. OMG! I know “Goodwill” may bring up some weird connotations but this Goodwill is beyond AWESOME!

GOODWILL

BUT….. If your like my boyfriend and you must have something brand new that no one has ever worn before.

Go to DAFFYS

1311 BROADWAY AT 34th street

Here you’ll find amazing stuff for really cheap. They have BIANNUAL sales first two weeks of January and July. I bought a light blue faux fur XOXO jacket for $3.00. Yes, I’m serious and its adorable!

SADLY DAFFYS IS NOW CLOSED SORRY 3/30/13 R.I.P DAFFYS

I hope this helps some frugal fashionistas. I still don’t know where to get amazing deals like this in San Francisco but if you have any New York Shopping questions, feel free to ask away.

XOXO,

See what happens when I give Lila a needle and thread and she sees LADY GAGA PICS!

30 Mar

So, we I think its unanimous that we all love LADY GAGA. Well I do. I like her because she isn’t typically beautiful in the Hollywood sense.  But she is pretty, has the best figure EVER and she can entertain. She embodies the real definition of an “ENTERTAINER”.  Shes is also from my hometown of New York. My 9-year-old daughter saw some Lady Gaga still pictures and asked me for a needle and thread.  She thought the outfits were interesting. She then started to look through my boxes of fabric and she came up with a really cute REMIX of the outfits Lady Gaga wore in the TELEPHONE video. (Another video which I love!!)

Ive already decided to be Lady Gaga for Halloween. Its the one time of the year you can get away with anything and I plan to juice it for all its worth.


All outfits and pictures were made and taken by my daughter Lila Juliet. I just thought it was totally cute to post. She wants me to start making barbie clothes. I ordered a few patterns. If it materializes into something cute, I’ll post them in my etsy store.

XOXO,
