I really love the Final Answer Short Sleeve top. I would get it in white and pair it with the Business as Usual blazer, Cheap Monday grey skinnies, and blush-colored patent kitten pumps. Top it off with big, black glasses.

My bowling nickname is Cheesy Cakes, but it's tongue & cheek, because I don't actually get strikes.

Kind of in love with the Gazebo Get Together Teal Dress. I love a good pastel teal color, lace, and summer dresses and this piece combines the best of all three. I think my first outfit would be very feminine and vintage. I would wear the dress with a drapey/overize light beige trench coat with bow detail, white knit patterned bobby socks, beige wedge/flatform shoe - like the Bonnibel Elmo Camel Platform Wedge Sandal - and boater hat to top of the look. Perfect for a warm spring day!


Unfortunately, I don't bowl so I don't have a clever bowling nickname whatsoever. :[

Laken said...

Hello! My name is Laken Brooks-

One of my fave items from lulus might just be this lovely wrap-around skirt.

What can I say? It's summery, airy and feminine! I'd style it with some cute sandals or perhaps even some vintage oxfords, along with a neutral/leather bag and some more simple accessories: that way, the pattern of this skirt would really pop!

Leila said...

I'd get these bad boys! :

I'd pair them with an eggshell-colored lace dress, with big sleeves and delicate gold jewelery.

As for my bowling name--it's always "Sex Machine," which is incredibly embarrassing. (It was my gamer tag when I used to play Halo with my guy friends as a joke, and it sort of stuck for the go to messing-around name).

Oh Lulu's! They always have such cute stuff. I'm currently admiring this coral top:

For the rest of my ensemble, I'd go with a pair of vintage zig zag Missoni shorts I own, a Navajo turquoise cuff, and strappy beige sandals.

My bowling name is "Butters" because a. I am one clumsy gal, and b. my gullibility reminds my friends of the South Park character Butters. ;-)

Oh my goodness, this would be so amazing to win! I just adore Lulus, so many awesome goodies.

Fun way to mix and match with colorblocking! :)

I love the Family Tree Peach and Mint Dress found here:
I would style it with some nude stripy wedges with a colored sole, a summer straw hat, and some sort of delicious tropical drink.

I don't actually have a bowling moniker, as usually whoever I am bowling with types in something obscene for me before I get the chance to figure out how to work the machine.

Yay! Thanks for doing the giveaway!
