Spring Florals

Tomorrow is Easter, and in my world of fashion that means two things: First, it’s officially appropriate to break out the White (although here in California that’s a silly, outdated “rule” that I never ever follow.) And second– it’s time for a spring floral overload.  Easter and florals go hand and hand, and with everything coming up roses, here’s a look at a floral-inspired fashion editorial that I’ve fallen in love with.  A good floral print dress is timeless, but combining florals with feathers and pastels and lady-like shapes is inspired and ethereal.

Breakfast with Tiffany

I love a good red dress. Give me a little red dress over a little black dress any day.  There’s something so feminine and powerful about red, and it commands attention like no other color.  So in the spirit of Valentines Day,  I’m excited to release one of my absolute favorite new dresses– the little red “Tiffany” dress.   I can never get enough of the 1950′s inspired silhouette, and  topped with polka dots and an oversized bow, this dress is perfect for the ‘Sweetheart’ season.  Dress it up with classic stilettos, or go comfortable in simple ballet flats. Given it’s name and vintage style, I couldn’t resist paying a little homage to the 1961 classic while spending some time in Pasadena.  SHOP “Tiffany” here.

Best Dressed: Alyssa Campanella at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards

I love a good challenge.  So earlier in January, when my good friend and favorite “muse” Alyssa Campanella asked if I could design her a special gown for the 2014 People’s Choice Awards- I jumped at the chance.  Not only is Alyssa a Designer’s dream, but her style is very similar to my own.  The challenge?  A four day deadline.  Alyssa+Campanella+Arrivals+People+Choice+Awards+CIyIzutzn36l

Luckily, Alyssa knew exactly what she wanted.   Something elegant, romantic, and effortless.   The result: an ethereal, iridescent custom gown  fit for a modern-day princess.

I’m so happy with the end result of this gown.  And it’s also very exciting to see Alyssa toping many of the season’s  ‘Best Dressed’ lists!

TOO HOT FOR YOUTUBE?

On Friday we released the new “grindhouse” inspired Lauren Elaine Swim 2014 campaign film.  And on Saturday, in the true spirit of “grindhouse” cinema, our campaign film was slapped with a nice age-restriction ban on Youtube, due to “explicit material that violates youtube’s community guidelines.”  Explicit material?  Ok, we know our girls are hot, but REALLY youtube?
