“I’ll Wear Your Grandma’s clothes, I’ll look incredible.”

4 Apr

 

I LOVE paying barely anything for my clothes. When a co worker tells me theres a sale at H&M, I ask “What kind of sale?” If they say items are about $20, I don’t consider that a sale. That’s not a sale for me. Call me cheap, I don’t care. Clothes shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. One of the reasons that I love vintage clothing is because its unique and has lasted for so long and is durable, plus you can find amazing deals for vintage at Goodwills and other shops. Believe me I indulge once in a while. I have a stupid expensive pair of True Religions but they’re the only jeans I actually like to wear. I also have a few pairs of Michael Kors shoes.  It’s only natural that Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” is my self proclaimed theme song. My new thing is taking a picture of what I have on that day, breaking down the price and where I got it then instagraming it

~~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

MOSCHINO CHEAP AND CHIC for SPRING 2012

Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2012

Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2012

These box bags are from 2010 but I think they work with 50’s style.

Here are some pics just for inspiration!

Bridget Bardot

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.

Elizabeth Taylor

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.

Blake Lively at a Chanel Dinner in ParisSerena Van Der Woodson at Blair's Baby Shower

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

**New Sewing Machine, New Life and New Headband Line Coming soon!!**

16 Jan

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.

Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams looking stunning.

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.
