Lulu Letty: March 2010

Sponsor Giveaway- Beta Boutique

My wonderful sponsor, Beta of Beta Boutique, is giving one of my lovely readers the chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to her beautiful shop!

beta
Here's what Beta has to say about her shop... Beta Boutique is a collaboration between me and my mom, as we've always shared a passion for things vintage, aristocratic, feminine, sophisticated and things with history and their own stories. The beauty of vintage for us is the ability to materialize daydreaming about living in past decades, the connection with history and the possibility to escape from the made-in-china reality. And of course the quality, femininity, originality and individuality of vintage pieces.
Beta Boutique
Beta Boutique is filled with vintage items which represent our aesthetic considerations, love for femininity, Art-House cinema, modern literature and popular culture cliches.

The weather was oh so nice that I couldn't resist throwing on my romper and going for a walk in the park with my love. Later this week it's supposed to get as high as 80 degrees. Oh, how I love spring!

I have to confess that rompers aren't the most figure flattering things on me, but they're so fun that I really don't care.

Do you wear things that you love even if they're not the most flattering?

A big congratulations to Annie, of Time Enough for Drums, for winning the BrideBlu gift certificate giveaway! Thank you to everyone that entered and to Cat for being such a wonderful sponsor!

Happy Wednesday!

What's New

I have a thing for rompers and more specifically, rompers that are 40's inspired. This one from ModCloth is a dream and will look quite lovely with my navy Seychelles platforms!

Even though I'm on the hunt for black sandals, these MIA Newport wedges were screaming my name and I couldn't resist their siren call. Luckily, I bought the last pair in my size at Endless.

Remember how I styled my overalls? Well, this is the rainy day version of the Prepster! I swapped the espadrilles for duck boots, added otk socks, and left the straw hat and aviators at home.

Cole's party was a great success. Everyone admired our place and the decorations and food. However, since I was busy being hostess, I was only able to take a few photos.

Here's the diy banner I made for Cole... remember his little trophy?

Due to the party preparations, I'm so very behind on my blog reading. I hope to catch up today!

I hope everyone had an awesome weekend!

I'm sure that most of you don't realize, that in my head I live in an English country house back in 1932. Where people wore particular clothes for particular activities and in the evening white tie. That's the life for me.

Sponsor Giveaway- BrideBlu

My amazing sponsor, Cat of BrideBlu, is giving one of my very lucky readers the chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to her gorgeous shop!

bride blue border
Hi! My name is Cat. I am the creator of BrideBlu, a sweet, sparkling jewelry line intended to celebrate the "special" in everyday. I also have an "alter ego" jewelry shop called RockPaperSilver. My materials of choice are Swarovski crystals (hello...I love how they sparkle with even the tiniest bit of light!), vintage findings, and inspiring charms. If I could pick two words to describe my work they would be sweet and sparkley!
BrideBlu
The idea behind BrideBlu accessories stems from my love for nostalgia and the general belief that special things shouldn't be solely reserved for special moments. The entire line is dressy enough to wear with special occasion ensembles (gowns, cocktail dresses, formal attire) but simple enough to dress up an "everyday" look. This is were the "nostalgia" comes in...I like to think of my pieces being worn again...re-celebrating memories and creating new ones along the way.
BrideBlu
When I am not designing jewelry or blogging you are likely to find me playing cards (you name the game, I will belly up to the table :)), watching comedies, and enjoying qt with my husband and our friends. I enjoy reading, crafting, flying (my husband is a pilot), and coffee (black!). I would classify myself as a romantic (but not hopeless:)) and try to live each day to the fullest. One of my favorite quotes is "Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but rather by the moments that take your breath away"...so true!
BrideBlu

Cat is also offering all my readers FREE WW SHIPPING + 10% OFF with a coupon code. Use the code LULULOVE10 in the "notes to seller" during checkout. This offer is valid in both of her etsy shops, BrideBlu and RockPaperSilver from March 24th- March 31st.

To Enter: Simply leave a comment on this post. The giveaway is open to everyone, including international readers and ends March 30th at 10pm est. The winner will be announced March 31st!

Good Luck!
Maria Sig
