LUX Life Unexpected Style: Smart Blazer Outfit

Monday, November 15th, 2010

lux life unexpected style

Even if the shows ratings aren’t so great, people still want to know about Life Unexpected style. Especially when it comes to Lux’s clothing.

Taryn, 25 just happened to have wrote to us about Lux from Life Unexpected:

I was hoping to have a particular outfit replicated, specifically one article of clothing. Could you please tell me where Lux’s blazer is from in the November 9th episode (Plumber Cracked)? I wish it was possible to know exactly which brand of blazer she was wearing and where to get it. Include online shops or stores, it does not matter, I was really hoping to find out the exact blazer she was wearing.

Not vague, huh? Taryn wanted the exact item! Well, we try to find exact replica’s when we can, but do specialize in more of a “look for less” type of deal. In this case, I was pretty stumped at first for this Lux Life Unexpected style look. It’s the prime time for a brown blazer with elbow patches to be in stores, and yet my results did not yield much. Disgraced, I huffed and puffed for a bit. No houses blew down, but I did dismiss web pages in a flurry of “no, you aren’t the right one!” madness.

caroline forbes fashion

Candice Accola has been wowing fans in her portrayal of Caroline Forbes in season 2 of The Vampire Diaries. In the episode “Masquerade” she proved to be strong and sympathetic. But she has not lost her great sense of style, either!

She wore a red dress with one shoulder, and it’s definietly a look worth copying for Homecoming, Christmas parties, or anything that requires a cute dress.

Nina Dobrev Fashion: On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Nina Dobrev has AMAZING hair, that is not debatable.

Dress like Nina Dobrev for a chic look! Nina Dobrev was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight. She wore her hair half up/half down, a shirt black dress with solid, structural layers (and with a very contemporary feel) and a pair of long patterned black leggings and black platform pumps.

Nina Dobrev has AMAZING hair, that is not debatable.

I cannot find any pictures of her on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon appearance right now. But I memorized everything pretty well. Here are elements that will help you get inspiration to dress like Nina Dobrev:

Reinspired! Claire Danes Romeo and Juliet Dress and Angel Wings for Halloween

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

claire danes romeo and juliet dress

When Romeo + Juliet came out in theaters I was obsessed with it. Since the internet was SO SLOW back then, and printers sucked, I was cutting out pictures from magazines and newspapers the old-fashioned way. Did I try to copy Claire Danes hair from the dance scene? Hell yes I did. I even distinctly remember a Romeo + Juliet giveaway in Seventeen Magazine where you had to mail in a postcard saying who designed the Juliet angel dress. (But, again we didn’t really have a quick Internet to help us!)

Every time I think of the Romeo + Juliet costumes I feel excited all over again. As I recently had a chance to review the newly released Romeo + Juliet on Blu Ray, I felt that excitement all over again. I have half a mind to dress up using inspiration from Claire Danes’ Romeo and Juliet Dress and Angel Wings. I even found examples of how I’d put it together. Because don’t forget, the costume Juliet has is of an angel. Which is doable. What you want is to copy the elegance of Juliet’s costume, and make note of items like the hairstyle, simple cross pendant, and the way the angel wings go upwards instead of down.

The makeup is easy to copy! I’d use a mineral foundation to give per ... Read More

Reinspired! The Nicole Kidman Moulin Rouge Dresses for Halloween

Because this is a fashion and shopping blog, it may not come as a SHOCK to you that one of the things I especially enjoy in Baz Luhrmann‘s Moulin Rouge is the fashion!

When I had a chance to review Moulin Rouge on Blu ray, I was inspired all over again! It’s a timeless and classic movie – especially for those who grew up watching it as teens. The Blu-ray version makes everything better, the pictures, the songs, everything. It’s almost as good as seeing it in the theater again!

The Vampire Diaries: Katherine’s Dress in ‘Masquerade’

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Masquerade

In the 7th episode of The Vampire Diaries season 2, Elena (or Katherine*) is wearing a black dress that I think some fans might want to track down. So, we have some ShesSmart.com options for Elena’s dress (edit: Katherine’s dress) in “Masquerade.”

*It was revealed in promos after I wrote this, that it IS indeed Katherine Pierce. A ha!

The dress is black, formfitting, (looks short), has a sweetheart neckline, two spaghetti straps, and black applique all over the sheath dress. Another way to get a similar look is to find a black sheath dress with black lace over it.It has a built-in belt to it that defines Nina Dobrev’s waist.

Four dress suggestions:

The Vampire Diaries Clothing: Bonnie’s Dress in ‘Masquerade’

Masquerade

In The Vampire Diaries “Masquerade” Kat Graham aka Katerina Graham (as Bonnie) wears a pretty dress. It is black and white with a print, and has one shoulder strap with a flower accent. I found one dress that meets my requirements in looking similar. (Far too many I found were trashy or tacky.)

Here’s Bonnie’s dress on The Vampire Diaries:

Life Unexpected Style: Lux at School

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

life unexpected style

It was hard to find the right dress for this Life Unexpected Lux Style Feature. I picked a dress from Mod Cloth, since I figure Lux would realistically shop there.  Aside from what I linked below, you might like this blue ruffled dress. I ended up picking three Modcloth dresses.

To complete this look, have some tousled, messy hair and wear a long pendant necklace and some knee-high boots.
