LuLu’s, which began as a mother-daughter venture, provides trendy clothing that has an exceptional value and quality. The site has been a major shopping source here on The Frisky because the online shopping site caters to a woman who wants to be fashionably hip and chic. I have been known to spend quite a bit of time browsing through hundreds of dresses and accessories on LuLu’s, and it usually has whatever item I’m searching for to add to our shopping guides. But somehow, LuLu’s manages to have a well-edited selection of items at moderate prices. If you’re still not convinced that LuLu’s should be your next online shopping destination, then here’s something to sweeten the pot. All Frisky readers will get 15 percent off their purchase at LuLu’s from now through July 23 — just enter code FRISKY at checkout. [LuLu's]

Kylie Minogue has fearless style that’s hard for the average woman to imitate. However, this look balances the tightrope between edgy and simple well. Well-placed pleats and a tapered leg make her khakis chic and interesting, while the long-sleeve button-down shirt keeps the look classic. This classy neutral look would be great for a seaside brunch because the long sleeves and cropped pants will guard against the sea breeze. Just remember to add a few punches of red, like Kylie did, so you don’t look like a member of the restaurant’s wait staff. Keep reading »
We like how Fang’s sleek and severe look is reflected in her demeanor. We might have suggested a belt for anyone else in this getup, but it would be wrong to alter Fang’s dramatic statement. This 28-year-old manages Bodymap, a Taiwanese clothing line with stores all over Taipei. All her clothes are from there. Keep reading »
I didn’t know Germany had a Fashion Week, but apparently it does. And it’s about what you might expect from the people who gave us Nazis and poop porn (and some pleasant things too, like great beer, but I digress). This is what walked down the runway at Patrick Mohr’s show. I would comment on the clothes, but I’m too busy looking at the puffy pubic-facial hair and bald caps. It looks like a scene from an Aphex Twin video or something. More pics, after the jump! Keep reading »
While you wait for Don Draper’s cigarette-smoking, alcohol-swilling hotness to return, the costume designer for “Mad Men” devised a solution to cure your withdrawal. After dressing Joan, Betty, and the boys in vintage designs for the past few seasons, Janie Bryant decided to launch her very own collection for QVC, obviously inspired by her work on the show. Meet Mod by Janie Bryant, which will include outerwear, jackets, sweaters, bottoms, handbags, and costume jewelry, is set to launch on September 29. In case you can’t wait that long, don’t stress. To coincide with the “Mad Men” premiere at the end of July, select pieces from the clothing line are set to appear on the QVC website this August so you can get your ’50s look on. “‘Mad Men’ has had such an influence on fashion in that women are dressing up more, so these are statement pieces that can change your outfit in an instant,” she explained. Fans of the show and style will find this collection is all in the details: detachable fur collars, lace, bright colors and patterns along with items that bring to mind the style of the ’50s and ’60s. Given the price range — $26 to $138 — this is a great way to jump into the vintage trend if you’re too lazy to dig through the bins at Goodwill or too grossed out to wear someone else’s clothes.
