How to Care for Lululemon Gear

So you just treated yourself to some new lulu clothes and you’re ready to get your sweat on. I love treating myself to nice gear that will perform and last. But, I’ve learned that you have to be really particular with how you launder your lululemon to prolong the life of your investment. 

Throwing lululemon clothes in your normal wash cycle can actually damage them or affect the performance of the fabrics!  I’ve created a guide based on lululemon’s care instructions and my own experiences with their gear.

6 Style Tips to Look like Fashion Pro

If you feel like you’re one of those people who will never be “stylish”, there is hope! A lot of times it’s not the clothes that you have, but the unique way that you wear them that makes your stylish look. Here are 6 tips to pulling together an outfit that will make you feel like a style pro.

  1. If you struggle with style, stick to the basics. Dark skinny jeans, button up blouses, simple cozy sweaters, and classic cut dresses won’t go out of style, and are the easiest way to look polished every day. Start with basics and add pops through statement shoes, jewelry, or a bold lip color.

My Favorite Spring 2019 Couture Looks

Couture fashion shows are my favorite part of the fashion industry. They truly represent the art of fashion and the art of clothing making. Couture garments are all handmade, in stunning detail. There is a great documentary on Netflix called 7 Days Out with an episode about a Chanel Couture show, if you’re curious about what goes into it! The art of fashion shows like these are the reason I went to school for fashion design.

This week is the Spring 2019 Couture fashion week, and the shows have not disappointed. My favorite show is always Givenchy—I personally love their aesthetic and reinvented silhouettes. Dior’ show took on a circus theme with just enough influence to keep the garments designed and not theme-y. Elie Saab keeps to a very consistent look show after show, but the gowns are none-the-less stunning. There is now doubt this collection will be all over the red carpet at upcoming award shows.

And then there was Viktor & Rolf who made a literal statement with each look. Clever, bold, and 2019 mood for sure.
