I discovered LuLus last Spring and was wowed by what they had to offer.

LuLus offers amazing on-trend apparel, shoes, and accessories at unbelievably affordable prices!

Starting today, LuLus.com has a really cool contest going on… One blogger (that would be me) will win $100 if they get the most comments to a post about LuLus.com (that would be this post).

Paste a link to your favorite item in the comments section of this post!!! Tip: One commenter will only win if this blog post gets the most comments, so please link to this post in your Twitter, Facebook, and blog. Good luck to us both!

Voting ends midnight (Pacific) December 4th.

 

1. Rebecca

Rebecca - Get The Look For Less

 

I’m wearing one of my favorite dresses and it’s so versatile. My favorite way, is to turn the bottom into a bubble hem with safety pins!

Rebecca’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: BB Dakota Kay Dress in Black


2. Dana

Dana - Get The Look For Less

 

I love my Urban outfitters dress just for this reason, it’s so easy to wear with anything and it’s got exactly my style already designed into it: ruffles and hardware. :) I love mixing things up: ruffles and menswear/ prep and punk/ stripes and dots. I believe you should stick to classics and add your own spunk to everything you wear. Included is my pup, which is also the perfect accessory to any outfit (black goes with anything!) …thanks!

3. Juls

Juls - Get The Look For Less

 

I decided to take this blue “hand me down” dress from my mom and make it into something special. Everyone knows that the black dress is very versatile and that’s how it makes it’s way into our closets and hearts, but a splash of color can really make you stand out.

The first look is the dress with a denim jacket, studded belt, layered necklace, chunky sandals, and a denim bag. I figured this would be a perfect look for going out with the girls for a drink.

The second look is really fun. There’s an ivory tank underneath and lacy leggings with a belt, necklace, peep toe pumps, and a classic black bag. This would be more for going to a fun party.

The third look is the night time elegance look. Good for a special date or a family dinner. I paired the dress with a gray sweater, some thrifted pearl look a likes, black tights, black booties, and a sophisticated bag.

Lastly, I wore the dress as a shirt with jeans, good for a shopping trip or walking around in the city. I wore this with a scarf, a sheer knit, jeans, flats, and a small bag. Perfect for a city that may be windy or chilly. Hope you like it :)

4. Chelsea

Chelsea - Get The Look For Less

 

My idea behind these outfits was to take a dress that is accessible to every girl and put four different spins on it. It is a little black dress that I bought from Forever 21 for $10.50–everyone can afford it and most everyone should be able to find something similar in a store at their mall. I wanted to show that you can wear the classic LBD in almost any situation–casual, dressed up, playful, and glamorous. None of the added accessories or clothing pieces cost more than $20, with the exception of the knee high boots, which were $49. All of these are truly looks for less!

5. Trina

Trina - Get The Look For Less

 

My foundation dress is one that I’ve had for about 12 years purchased from Express. Its such a classic staple I thought it would be the perfect dress for this contest. Most people have a LBD (little black dress) that they can transform with different shoes & accessories.

I had a hard time narrowing down my selections though. But I had to incorporate the shoe jewelry (my latest obsession) into one of the outfits! Hope you like!

Cocktail Party: LBD, fur coat, wristlet, nude fishnets, satin bow pumps, black and gold jewelry=Super Glam

Date night: LBD, grey kimono, silk sash, peacock bangle, black pumps & the ultimate sexy shoe accessory:shoe chains= Smokin’ Hot

Chillaxin’: LBD, magenta banded bottom top, houndstooth scarf, black scrunch boots = Cute & Comfy

Workin’ 9 to 5: LBD, black tights, black & cream ruffled top, black belt, black cardigan, black pumps = Sexy Sophisticate

Trina’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: Botticelli Dress by Collective Concepts


6. Daniela

Daniela - Get The Look For Less

 

A little more about my four outfits: I decided to delete my other entry and be a little more creative. That’s the reason why I picked a difficult dress like this black one w/ruffles. I tried to create a sexy look, a more classic one (even though it is a little edgy too), one for colder days ( I live in Florida, so this one was hard!), and an everyday look!

Daniela’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: Tranquility Dress in Purple


7. Kayley

Kayley - Get The Look For Less

 

For this contest, I decided to use a denim strapless dress that I got for $5 or so from dressky.com. The themes for each outfit are listed above the corresponding image. The overall idea is “outfits for the everyday”.

As for my personal style, I’m really a dress-and-boot kind of girl. I think the “out on the town” dress is closest to my usual attire. :]

Kayley’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: Sparkplug Wrap Dress


8. Jen

Jen - Get The Look For Less

 

The mini dress is from Motel Rocks and I like to pair it up with pants, knits, and other warm clothes so I can wear it in the fall…a great way to expand my fall wardrobe without spending any money!

Jen’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: Insatiable Sensation Dress


9. Melissa

Melissa - Get The Look For Less

 

I got this dress for just $10 at TJ Maxx! These looks are inspired by a naughty schoolgirl that’s more grown-up, with just enough edge and rock n roll. In the first, I mixed it with shiny leather type leggings and studded pumps. The second is with a long soft brown sweater and gray boots. The third is peep-toe red pumps, a double heart locket necklace and earrings I made. The fourth is my fave, with a white top, black vest and the plaid dress just as the skirt. I have to mention that both the black studded pumps and black boots are Kenneth Cole, the pumps were another steal at $30 from TJ Maxx, while the boots I got on sale at last year at $60.

Melissa’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: Earl Grey Day Dress


10. Charee

Charee - Get The Look For Less

 

I purchased this mini dress about 2 years ago from Guess and I ♥ it. I can wear it as a dress or tunic. My fave look is the “rockstar chic” where I paired this mini dress with liquid leggings, my fave caged booties, a leather jacket and a scarf.

Charee’s Fav Lulu*s Dress: Jane Siegel Dress

Beaded Sequin Bib Necklace Ribbon - Get The Look For Less

JB & Me has decided to donate the Sequin Bib Necklace to one of our lucky readers and I couldn’t be more excited! If you haven’t checked out JBAndMe.com yet, you’ll love this online boutique founded by a mother and daughter team. Their much cherished “girl getaways” served as the catalyst for their future partnership in the fashion business. They have a huge selection of designer brands to choose from and offer a variety of price points. In fact, in a recent post, we compared their bib necklaces at $39 each to a very similar inspiration piece that retails for $1000!

Tis the season for winning this for yourself, or gifting it to someone you know will love it. They allowed me to select the necklace of my choice, and I was leaning towards their Bib Ribbon Necklace, until I stumbled across the pic below. I love that this fashionista is wearing a neckline that is hidden behind a similar v-shaped bib necklace. It makes the necklace look as though it is part of the shirt, almost like it has an embellished collar and I LOVE that.

Jeweled Bib Necklace - Get The Look For Less

The beading of the Sequin Bib Necklace necklace is so beautiful and will look amazing on your collarbone. I am so in love with the black ribbon closure! Try this one on with something elegant for a night on the town, or simply pair it with your favorite jeans and solid tee. Either way you wear it, the sequin and beaded number, will turn heads.

Gold Double Locket Necklace - Get The Look For Less

I recently discovered the gorgeous handmade jewelry designs by Bijoule and couldn’t wait to share their innovative creations with my readers! Bijoule [be-zhü-lay] came into existence when a girl with a growing passion for jewelry making and a boy with a special flair for business decided to embark on an exciting journey together. It was founded on the idea of meeting the needs of the fashion savvy with an ecletic mix of chic and bohemian designs. Their trinkets use a wide array of materials such as precious metal and plated metal chains, Swarovski crystals and beads, vintage findings, iridescent Czech glass beads, lustrous pearls and pretty gemstones. Each piece is uniquely handcrafted and come in limited quantities.

The mastermind behind these beautiful creations was nice enough to let me choose a piece for this contest. It took me days to decide on a single item because I love her entire collection. A few of my favorites include the lady charlotte – a gorgeous necklace of linked filigree drops, the angel wing necklace because if feather jewelry is in style, then this is the ultimate in chic, the oh-so-unique chimalis sterling silver ring wrapped in turquoise beads for a gorgeous pop of color, and the ornoir earrings, because you all know that I am ADDICTED to black and gold this season. Finally I decided on my fav of favs, the brass double locket Keepsake Necklace. For the vintage princess who appreciates a sentiment or two, this layered vintage brass locket necklace is a great addition to her trinket box.

How to win: it’s simple. Go to Bijoule.com and choose your favorite piece of jewelry and post a link to the item in the comments section of this post. Entries must be in by midnight November 4th and the lucky winner will be selected at random on November 5th.
