I don’t pay attention to the ads in Women’s Wear Daily often, but today I noticed an ad seeking advertisers for LuckyKids magazine. Now, I love Lucky, the women’s magazine about shopping, as much as the next style geek seeking relatable fashion (and I even still own the very first issue of Lucky), but I can’t for the life of me understand why Condé Nast is going to publish LuckyKids.

You might have noticed something different about the December issue of Lucky magazine. Creative director Andrea Linnett’s illustrated “Fashion Babble” column was missing from the last page. The column hasn’t died—it’s just moved. Linnett has revived the former fashion story on a new site called I Want to Be Her!, where she features stylish or fashion-forward women. I Want to Be Her! is presented in illustration form, like “Fashion Babble,” but what’s even better is that each piece is hotlinked to an actual clothing item, making shopping easier. The illustrations are the creation of Anne Johnston Albert, an illustrator and designer who also drew “Fashion Babble.” I’ve already fallen in love with the “Cute Barneys Girl” story (above), and have plans to recreate that look, but I’m sure there will be many more sartorial illustrations to spark outfit ideas.

Even though its sister magazine Domino folded last week, Lucky will continue to bring readers their shopping fix, and now they’ll even do the legwork for you. Today the magazine launched a free iPhone application, Lucky at Your Service Digital Concierge, that helps you find clothes featured in the magazine at a store near you. Right now, the application features the more than 70 shoes listed in its March shoe guide and lets users shop by type, brand, color, and size. After you’ve found something you want, just click the “Find It Near You” button and it will either use GPS or a ZIP code to determine a where your shoe of choice is available. You can even call and have them put on hold. Just one way Lucky is trying to do their part to help the economy bounce back! (We just hope that giving away the service for free doesn’t put the magazine out of business.) Keep reading »

Lucky magazine has a habit of telling us about new designers, cool collaborations, and amazing deals, so we’re pretty excited about LuckyShops, a shopping event the mag puts on with current and off-season items at up to 70 percent off retail, complimentary cocktails, and great goody bags. The event takes place November 7 and 8 in New York, and tickets are now on sale (starting at $20) and include a year’s subscription to Lucky. In preparation for the shopping extravaganza, we put together a slideshow showing off a few of the designers whose clothes and accessories were sold at LuckyShops last year…but for way cheaper.

Summer is in the air, a time of year to get in touch with your softer side — softer hairstyles (my favorite being soft, loose, beachy-waves), softer makeup, softer colors, and softer silhouettes. While my personal style is kind of on the edgy/eclectic side, I have a friend who seldom navigates away from flirty, ultra-femme styles. She rocks this look everywhere, from formal dates, to casual dates, from upscale bars to seedy, dive bars, this gal loves to embrace her femininity. This style is also a favorite of one of my favorite fashion trend-setters, Zooey Deschanel (one half of Frisky favorite, She & Him), who appropriately graces the cover of Lucky‘s July issue in a sweet floaty number, a style she’s loved for as long as she can remember.
