Blogger Picks of the Month - PancakeStacker May 12 2013
Summer is officially here (well for us LA folks it is) and to help us celebrate the many hot days ahead is our May Blogger of the Month, PancakeStacker's Chandamheer! Chandamheer has picked out perfect Must-Have summer pieces that can easily be incorporated into any girls' wardrobe. See how she easily styles each piece from girly to tomboy-chic.
Chandamheer in our High Waist Circle Skirt in Light Blue
"I love the detail on this pretty pale blue skirt! I'd pair it with sandals or wedges, a floppy hat, a graphic tee, and chunky knit cardi for a night time date look."
Chandamheer in our Printed Chambray Cropped Vest in Navy Dots
"A vest is a must-have in each closet. A denim vest is even better. I'd wear this over a tank top or even over a chambray button up for a little denim on denim action. Canadian tuxedo, anyone?"
Chandamheer in our Printed Chambray Dolphin Shorts in Navy Dots
"Denim shorts are a staple in every closet - how can you get through the summer without a pair? I'd wear these shorts with a loose white tee or a cropped top for a breezy summer feel."
"No one should be afraid of prints and what's a more fun way to wear floral than with a matching top and bottom combo? I'd wear these pieces separately and together. Together first because more floral is more fun. Pair it with a big yellow sun hat or a fedora and you're ready for the sun."
"There's nothing I love more than a white tank or tee. I'd wear this with a teal maxi skirt and sandals, but then again, what couldn't I wear this with?"
"A little lace bra is just what one needs when wearing any loose tees. My pick is the neon yellow because it's daring when you want to show it off under a cut up tee and mysterious when it's a peek-a-boo under a button-up!"
Chandamheer in L.C.t.'s Shredded Cross Tank in Red
"A shredded tee is great to have when attending concerts. I go to quite a bit, so I'd wear this with a lace bralette underneath and a pair of distressed denim."
L.C.t.'s Open Shoulder Hi-Lo Top in Grey
"I love this loose, flowy top - I'd wear it with a pair of simple white shorts so the top could do all the talking!"
L.C.t.'s Sleeveless Tulip Back Crop Top in Red
"A tee is made better when the back detail is interesting. I'd wear this tee with a pair of denim shorts and sandals for an everyday look, or a pair of black fitted skinny jeans with heels to dress it up."
Thank you Chandamheer for being our May Blogger of the Month! We hope you enjoyed her picks for the hot weather months coming ahead. Check out Chandamheer's blog below for more awesome outfit posts and yummy food posts too!

Blogger Picks of the Month - HautePinkPretty April 12 2013
As the weather is finally getting warmer here in LA, we're starting to shed our post-winter essentials. Our latest Blogger of the Month, An from HautePinkPretty, picked out fun as well as polished items that you can easily incorporate into your wardrobe for a little Spring pick-me-up. We loved how she elevated each item with her casual yet polished twist.
An in our Neon Chevron Sweater in Neon Yellow
"This sweater is so perfect for Spring and Summer! It's such a pretty pop of color worn alone and light enough to layer like I did here! I love the contrast against black with subtle hints of gold accents. Plus, I received tons of compliments every time I've worn it which is always a winner in my book!"
An wearing our Lace Peplum Skirt in Blue
"Peplum has been my favorite silhouette and trend the past year and it's definitely not going anywhere any time soon! Super flattering and eye catching; I adore how this skirt manages to combine such a pretty shape with delicate lace textures."
An in our Long Sleeve Open Front Knit Cardigan in Black
"Casual, cool, edgy and fun all at the same time. I've found myself tossing this cardigan on over all types of outfits when on the go. It's a great layering piece that manages to add texture and eye appeal while still being a great neutral!"
Vegan Leather Moto Jacket in Yellow
"I love adding a fun neon to outfits for some extra pizazz and this jacket is just epic! I would wear it with a casual t-shirt and jeans look or throw it over my shoulder with a minidress to add some edge!"
Sleeveless Peplum Mini in Citrus
"This dress would be so cute to wear for a brunch date with a pair of nude heels and my hair in a high bun. I love how posh the peplum shape looks!"
An wearing our L.C.t. Tie Dye Tank in Grey
"I adore how timid this top looks from the front while being unexpectedly sexy on the sides, showing just a sliver of skin and a peek of your bralette which is why it's the perfect time to wear a bright color or fun texture underneath!"
An wearing our L.C.t. Sheer Geo Print V-neck
"Black and white is so in right now! Slightly sheer with an awesome tribal print, this tee is just so easy to wear."
L.C.t. Tie Dye Capped Sleeve Dolman Top in Blue
"This top is perfect to pair with a cute pair of killer jeans and a fun belt - the way it wraps in front will show off your belt buckle or bottoms without needing to tuck it in. It gives off that effortlessly cool vibe!"
L.C.t. Long Sleeve Geo Print Boyfriend Tee in Black
"The ideal not your average tshirt. This tee would be great for layering necklaces with a pair of printed jeans and sky high pumps!"
L.C.t. Tie Dye Tank Maxi Dress in Black
"Perfect festival dress (hey Coachella!). I love how dramatically long it is, plus the sexy cutouts! This dress would be the perfect Spring/Summer uniform."
An wearing our Studded Bow Bracelet in White
"I love this bracelet so much that I practically sleep with it on! The bow is just so sweet while still being edgy with the spikes. Plus, it really goes with everything and the bright white adds the perfect contrast and pop!"
Double Pyramid Spike Bracelet in Gold/White
"I love the mix of colors/metals these bracelets come in! So easy to layer them on for the fun arm parties or wear them alone!"
Thank you An for being our April Blogger! We hope you all enjoyed her picks for the Spring season. Don't forget to check out An's blog below for more awesome outfit posts and adventures.

Blogger Picks of the Month - Art In Our Blood March 11 2013
Spring at last! With Spring literally right around the corner, Jennifer from Art In Our Blood chose some perfect whimsy styles that even fairies will be jealous of! We also gave Jennifer a sneak peek at our L.C.t. Spring 2013 collection (launching March 20th!). We fell madly in love with Jennifer's ethereal yet edgy style and her fun styling tips to make each piece a working staple for Spring.
"Black striped tops are great pieces to mix with prints and textures. I wore mine with a pink ruffled petticoat and a flower crown for a feminine and opulent, Marie Antoinette inspired look."
"I love warm, peach tones for the spring. I'd pair this shirt with a pair of floral denim and a tan beanie for a casual, earthy look."
"This crop top would look adorable for an all white look! I would pair it with a white tulle skirt, white cardigan, and some simple nude pumps."
L.C.t. Long Sleeve Geo Print Boyfriend Tee in White
"This long sleeved top would look adorable paired with some long necklaces and cute rings. To finish the look, I'd pair it with leggings and a pair of booties!"
L.C.t. Sheer Panel Tee in Mint
"I don't think I will ever get tired of mint! This top would look perfect with a poofy skirt, small purse, and pumps!"
Hi-Lo Tank Shift Dress in Mint Blue
"I love the minty color of this dress combined with its soft and flowy silhouette! I'd style it with a floral crown and some goddess inspired jewelry."
Chambray Button Up in Navy/Blush
"Bold floral prints are something I'm always on the search for, and this blouse has the perfect tropical yet edgy vibe. I'd wear it with a lace bralette and a high-waisted, slitted maxi skirt!"
"Putting this dress on would instantly brighten up any morning! I'd keep the color palette of this look bright and bold, and style it with a kimono or shawl, and a pair of wedges."
Oversized Tank in Sea Breeze
"I love the way that muscle tees accentuate your arms. This one would look great with a pair of high-waisted denim shorts and cute sandals for a beach-ready, California vibe."
Striped Tank in Peach Stripe
"This simple tank top is a great layering piece for the spring! I'd wear it with a pair of light colored denim, nude pumps, and a beanie. Cute and comfortable for walking around between classes."
Geo Necklace in Silver
"I have a lot of statement necklaces already so I love finding dainty necklaces that I can wear everyday. This silver arrow necklace is a cute accent to any look."
Double Pyramid Spike Bracelet in Gold & Silver
"I usually think to wear only gold jewelry or only silver jewelry, so I like that this bracelet happens to have both colors combined. It'll match with anything!"
Skull Charm Necklace in Gold
"I have an obsession with skulls and bones, and especially love drawing them, so this necklace is perfect for me!"
Thank you Jennifer for being our March blogger! We hope you all enjoyed her Must-Have Items for the spring season. Check out Jennifer's blog below for more outfit posts and styling tips.

Blogger Picks of the Month - StyleMap February 12 2013
Spring is right around the corner and it's bringing sunshine and a reason to freshen up our wardrobe. With help from our latest blogger, Emily from StyleMap has picked perfect Must-Have items that ranges from casual to biker chic. We love how each piece can easily be integrated to any girl's wardrobe.
Emily wearing our Cropped Turtleneck in Baby Blue
"I’m in love this top. Not too short, but cropped just enough. It’s one of those tees you can pull out from your closet any day of the week and feel super cute in 2 seconds. I paired it with a rust colored leather skirt and some littleblack booties with faux leopard detailing."
Emily wearing our Long Sleeve Shift Dress in Yellow/Ivory
"I love this sweet silhouette and pale yellow hue combined. I paired this dress with black booties and a hat to add a little bit of edge to look. It’s the perfect day dress for summer parties and tea times with girlfriends!"
Emily wearing our Vegan Leather Moto Jacket in Ivory
"This is one of those moto jackets you see and fall for instantly. It’s a classic with a little extra special touch. The added hood detail makes it ever so cool. I paired it with coated black denim and a graphic tee for that laid back weekender look."
Chambray Button-Up Top in Light Blue
"Everyone needs some chambray in their closet and this is another one to add to your collection. It’s a classic with a touch of flare. The contrast shoulders add just enough edge to make a bold statement."
Hi-Lo Stripe Tank in Coral
"Simple and sporty, this tank perfect for a beach day or throwing a frisbee at the park. I would wear it with some cut off shorts, head to the ocean side, and play some volleyball in the sand!"
Emily wearing our Studded Bow Bracelet in Tan
"Now that I own this bracelet, you can count on me wearing it basically every day. Nudes are currently my favorite color palette and I absolutely adore this bow bracelet! Sweet bow + gold studs = perfection."
Emily wearing our Lacquered Pyramid Double Finger Ring in Black Gold
"Black and gold are two colors that always look great together. This ring has attitude and class at the same time—a ring that demands attention when you’re in its presence!"
Triple Spiked Ring in Tan
"Like a crown for your finger, this pretty little, gold ring has personality. It’s simple enough that you can wear it alongside of a bunch of your other favorites."
Skinny Wrap Braclet in Pink
"A girl can never have too many wrap bracelets and this one is no exception. Pop color leather with baby studs makes this wrap bracelet just enough to attract the eye but not overwhelm. You could pair it with anything!"
Braided Wrap Bracelet in White
"This white braided bracelet is perfect for summertime armparties. I would layer it with some extra bracelets that have a bit of shine."
Thank you Emily for being our February blogger! We hope you all enjoyed her Must-Have items for the Spring. Want some more awesome style picks from Emily? Give her blog some love below.

Introducing LA's own, StilettoBeats' Emily is the latest addition to our wonderful group of bloggers. Emily brings a much needed burst of light to the gloomy season that is winter with her bright smile and bold choices from our Pre-Spring 2013 collection. Her must-have pieces range from bold prints to cozy comfort pieces that will give you a much needed pick-me-up that will hold you over 'til Spring comes around.
Emily wearing our Printed Bodycon Dress in Navy Animal
"One of my favorite types of dresses are those with long sleeves! There is something so subtly sexy about them. Keep the look flawlessly feminine by pairing it with nude strappy heels, a chunky necklace and a pop of color with the bag. For extra warmth a staple trench finishes the look!'
Emily in our Sleeveless Button Up in Fuchsia
"Cheetah print has become a staple in the fashion industry. I love the twit to this top - cheetah print in fuchsia! I wanted to keep this outfit super casual with black skinnies and a black belt. I added a peek-a-boo lace bustier underneath to spicen things up!"
Emily in our Tribal Print Dress in White Tribal
"Tribal print is alive and kicking! This bodycon dress is a must-have for Spring 2013. I paired it with my favorite faux leather jacket and classic black pumps for a look that can take you from your day job to your fabulous night outting."
French Terry Sweater in Grey
"Soft sweaters are the perfect layering piece for chilly Spring days. I love this particular style because of the baseball inspired cut. I would wear it with just about everything, a long maxi skirt, skinnies, and even over a printed sundress."
Feather Print Jersey Pant in Black Feather
"The sporty trend is ON and comfy sweater-like pants are seen everywhere - yup, even the office! Pair these babies with a graphic tee and a fitted blazer for a more put-together look."
