Old Hollywood Glamour is New Again! The Hottest Hairstyles are back!

20 Apr

As the old saying goes what is old is new again, and this so true in the world of fashion. Fashion isn’t just clothes. Fashion is your hairstyle, your attitude, your smile. You can look fashionable in a raggedy t shirt  and red lipstick if you have the right attitude.  Today, I saw a pic of Demi Lovatos new hair and I LOVE IT! Its reminiscent of Bridget Bardots. That got me thinking about some old school hairstyles that are pretty relevant today. This is what I came up with.

Disney's Demi Lovato's lovely hair do

Gorgeous Bridget Bardot

Marilyn Monroe

Miley Cyrus at the Oscars

Elizabeth Taylor

I absolutely adore Nip Tuck’s Kelly Carlsons hair which is so similar to Marilyn Monroes. It does seem like a lot of up keep so I dont think I’d be the right candidate for that style but she looks gorgeous.

Happy Hairstyling,

XOXO,

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.

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,
