Shoe of the Week September 29

Raise your hand if you are excited about the temperature change!  LuLu's is all kinds of excited because it means boot season is finally here.  And boot season this year means two things: booties and more booties!  We can't WAIT to wear this week's SOTW bare-legged with our floral dresses, underneath our skinny jeans and paired with funky tights.  Taylor brings us her newest fave matched with her own awesome style.  Don't let fall pass you by without this perfect wedge bootie.

Name- Baylee
Color-Taupe and Brown

Turn Ons-
Oversized watches, anything with a girly pattern, the Kardashians, chai tea lattes, lady bags, and BIG hair.  I'm feminine with an edge.

Acceptance Speech-
To this fab fall wedge, thank you for saving me from a long night in five inch heels.  You've brought me comfort while keeping me chic.  I cannot resist your unpredictable lace-up side and vintage skin.  My skinny jeans and floral dresses adore you...but who doesn't?

Need some help wearing this style?  We are seeing this low bootie and it's wedge heel EVERYwhere.

Shoe of the Week September 22

We know you've all been waiting on pins and needles!  What WILL those gals at LuLu's pick as the Shoe of the Week?!  Not one to disappoint, self-proclaimed shoe-aholic Blake has chosen her favorite pump for us and we. are. ecstatic!  This guy has been one of our favorites from the get-go and Blake has brought her own style to the table with this pick.  So, come on by and check out the SOTW and see what's new at LuLu's!

Name ~ System 
Color ~ Taupe or Black 
Turn Ons ~ Travel, leather moto jackets, and the blues; structured mini-dresses, anything high-waisted, and wide-leg trousers; Katherine Hepburn, vintage chain link bags, and black coffee in the evenings. Just like my make, I’m classic sophistication with a touch of funk!

Acceptance Speech ~ First, to my platform sole- you give me all the benefits of a sky-high heel while making sure it’s my glamour that makes headlines and not slips or falls. Thank you to my tweed base for keeping it church-friendly and to my leather strap with hardware intact- I applaud the sass! All in all, thanks for making me versatile; be it the family dinners on the square or gameday in the grove, you’re always my go-to girl!

walking barefoot is for the beach...

I really, really, really hate to start the blogging off this way, but I just can't stop myself!  I think of all these gals who, at the end of a long day, would otherwise be walking amongst broken beer bottle glass shards and other sidewalk nastiness and I. just. have. to. help.  Don't be that girl.  Please come buy yourself (and a friend--friends don't let friends walk barefoot from City Grocery) a pair of Footzyrolls.

What in the world is a Footzyroll?  Besides being ridiculously named, they are your new best friend this weekend.  Oxford is going to be packed and you won't want to make that long walk back to your car/dorm/house/friend's house without them.

Choose from Silver Snake, Black Snake, and Beige Snake.

Footzyrolls come in an adorable mini-Pringles sized can of fabulous and we just can't get over how AWESOME these guys are!  Tiny, rolled up ballet flats that fit in your clutch or purse (clutch, kids--these things are tiny.) that can be donned in any 911 shoe situation.  The best part is the sweet little satin drawstring bag for your precious heels.  Now you won't have to put your dirty shoe bottoms in your purse or worse--dangle them from one hand while the other sports your cute date.

No one needs to go out in heels without these tucked in their purse.  Cute (did we mention that they are cute?), easy to wear, tiny, and practical.
We couldn't resist showing the RH of New Jersey plugging Footzyrolls
Kids, this is how small they are.  Don't you need?

Can someone please go slap our momma?  We love Footzyrolls.

Welcome to follow LuLu's

Well, we've been open for about 6 weeks now and this blog has been a running dialogue in our head day in and day out.  Newer, edgy styles coming in to the store?  Need to blog.  Fabulous, fashion-forward customer with a great new style take? Need to blog.  Half of us love some new trend--half of us loathe it?  Need to blog.  Gorgeous, new shoe that follows us home and taunts us in our dreams?  Need to blog.

So, Oxford, here you are!  This blog will be a place where we can show our own style and hear what you have to say about yours.  Fashion is only as good as the women (and men) who don it.  Let us know what YOU think--we'll be sure to do the same.

Your turn--follow LuLu's.
