TFB x LuLu*s… So This Is Love

TFB-x-LULUS-The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-So-This-Is-Love

I’m in love, I’m in love… & I don’t care who knows it! I’m talking Meant to be, written in the stars, Romeo & Juliette kind of love [ minus the feuding families, the whole balcony situation, & the poetic, yet tragic death ]. So, who is it you may ask… well, it’s not so much of a “who” as a “what”.

The-Fashion-Bite-LuLus-Collab-Lifeguard-Tower THIS dress from LuLu*s is seriously the LOML  love of my life. I just can’t get enough of it { p.s. it’s a LuLu’s exclusive }. It was love at first site, it’s a mutual thing, and it’s growing stronger every day.

I don’t know what it is. I’m all about putting outfits together, mixing, matching, and clashing prints. It’s fun… it’s also a lot of work. There is something about having that one, simple piece that you can throw on, feel sexy and feminine, and not have to worry about layering, accessorizing, and trying to plan the perfect look.

This baby is kind of a one stop shop. Seriously… it’s such a gorgeous piece, which makes it easy to keep it simple stupid. On this day in particular, I decided even shoes were optional.

I’m pretty sure this is the kind of love that lasts a lifetime… So… what’s your favorite easy, breezy piece?

TGIF: Garden Style.

Kikadoo Secret Garden Collage 1

Happy Friday!! I had a super productive week and am beyond ready for the weekend. While “running errands” aka shopping with my girl Erica [of Fashionlushxx fame] we came across this enchanting flower shop / secret garden. Though it was closed, it was begging to be explored. Naturally, we saw this as the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot.

What to Wear Wednesday…? Shadowplay.

20121121-195737.jpg

What am I wearing this Wednesday you ask…? Well, I was fortunate enough to get the day off of work [I’d say that’s something to be grateful for!!] That means my day consisted of some turkey day prep… running errands, picking up some last minute ingredients, getting the house ready for company, and what was that other thing…? Oh ya… cooking!!! On a day like today you’ve gotta be comfy & casual! I paired some black leggings with my favorite studded combat boots, my Joy Division tee, this amazing LuLu’s studded cross army jacket, and this infinity scarf. Don’t forget to glitz it up with a little bit a wrist full of arm candy… all by yours truly {Kikadoo}! There it is… Cute, comfy, and casual. The perfect outfit for the perfect fall day.

Trend Alert Tuesday: Cut it out.

Holy Moly! Is it just me or am I seeing less fabric and more skin this season?? Holes, rips, tears, gashes, slashes, and cut-outs are popping up [or should I say popping out] everywhere. I don’t know about you… but I’m totally digging it.

So… what do you think? Love it… or leave it?

Anticipation is keepin’ me waitin’…

So Sunday is typically a day of rest.. HOWEVER… I am far too excited about my LuLu’s shipment that is set to arrive tomorrow!!! As many of you probably know, LuLu’s.com had a Flash Sale last Monday for Veterans Day… 3 hours only… 15% off! As soon as I heard this announcement I immediately rushed to the site and began to fill up my cart! In the eyes of a shopaholic [<— me], 15% off means the more you spend… the more you save! Needless to say I did some major damage. Before you judge me let me just say, it wasn’t all in vain. I did a little holiday shopping too! Check out some of the serious swag I scored…  

Love ya LuLu’s!

What to wear…? Wednesdays: are you fur real?

20121114-130451.jpg

grrr baby grrr… break out the fur.

Could it be that this seemingly endless summer that we’ve been having here in San Diego is finally meeting its demise…? Somebody, pinch me! I have been longing for winter weather and all that it entails… peppermint lattes, cozying up by the fire, and most importantly the FASHION! This season it is ALL about fur. Fur coats, fur vests, fur collars, you name it! I personally love this trend because I feel it lends itself to a variety of personal styles. Whether your look is classic, boho, or rocker chic… there’s a fur for that. There is no need to hunt long and hard for a fabulous fur, they’re everywhere! I have spotted some drool-worthy ones at FXII, H&M, Lulu’s, and Nasty Gal… so unleash your inner wild child and rock this savage trend.
