Update: The winner of the $200 Lulu*s giftcard is Migdalia – @MsLatina with the following comment: “I love this Shift dress. I think it would look great with slim jeans! http://www.lulus.com/products/full-of-promise-turquoise-blue-shift-dress/49353.html”  Congratulations Migdalia and a big thank you to all who participated!

While I tend to shy away from bright, bold colors and gravitate towards gray, black or beige, this season I’m totally smitten with all things bright (picture a modern, more sophisticated spin on the 80’s neon trend). Best of all I’m lovin how easy it is to incorporate “happy colors” into any outfit, on any occasion, via accessories, scarves and even shoes.  Tip: keep the outfit simple and let the color do all the work.  Same goes for accessories – for a more reserved take on the trend, pair it with basics like a blazer or favorite jeans.  Check out some of my favorite bright picks for this season from Lulu’s and how you can win a $200 Lulu’s gift card to get your brights!

To enter:

Leave a comment on Fashiongrail telling us your favorite item at Lulus.com.  For  additional entries, follow Lulu*s on Twitter and tweet about the giveaway or fan Lulu*s on Facebook (make sure to mention you did any of the above in the comment on Fashiongrail).  One winner will be picked on April 11 2012.  Lulu*s will email gift card voucher to the winner.  Good luck!

Gigi Hill Handbag Review & Giveaway!

Update: The winner of the Audrey bag is Cynthia with the following comment: “I ‘like’ Gigi Hill and Fashiongrail on Facebook – Cynthia M Richardson.”  Congratulations Cynthia and thank you all for participating!

I love it when I come across a company started by working mom’s like myself that just “gets it” when it comes to what women want.  Last week I was sent the ‘Audrey’ Gigi Hill Bag to review and I was shocked at how versatile, functional and BIG it was without sacrificing any sense of style. In each bag there is a pocket for everything (from water bottles to cell phones and lipstick) and it’s roomy enough to fit in extras like heels, a small clutch or heck even an entire outfit if you’re going out after work!

They come in tons of affordable fabrics making it THE bag for the office, shopping, travel or even in place of a baby bag!  I chose the black bag for myself and for the giveaway (it matches everything and never goes out of style!).  Check out some of my favorites below.

How to win the Audrey bag:

Head on over to Gigi Hill and tell us which is your favorite bag and why.  For an extra entry tweet the contest and tell us below that you did.  For a third entry, post on Fashiongrail’s or Gigi Hill’s Facebook wall sharing your pick and why (again let us know you did in the comments below).  For an extra entry tweet the giveaway or ‘like’ Gigi Hill and Fashiongrail on Facebook (make sure you state that you did below).  One random winner will be chosen on December 21st.  Gigi Hill will ship bag directly to winner.  U.S. residents only.

What was your fashion background prior to Project Runway?

I’ve always been an artist for as far back as I can remember.  I’m a self-taught designer and before Project Runway I worked as a set designer for TV and as a fashion stylist.

How have things changed for you after Project Runway?

My world has changed because of my experience on Runway.  I’m, now, able to work full-time as a fashion designer instead of it being just a hobby.  My Christopher Straub for maurices Collection is an absolute “Dream come true” and it may not have been possible if not for Project Runway.

What inspires your designs?

I find my inspirations from nature and it drives my creativity.  Flowers, stones, ripples in water…whatever…it sparks something inside me.

My all-time favorite designer is the late Alexander McQueen.  He was a fashion genius who took risks and challenged the limits of the female form.
