Online Boutique:

Some of you might have heard about It's a really cute online boutique that carries a wide range of junior's clothing. They have a huge selection of clothing from well-known brands such as BB Dakota and Steve Madden to less popular brands like Bamboo and Blaque label. The styles are trendy and fresh. There certainly is something for everyone. sent me 4 articles of clothing for this review. I’ll review the item that I ended up keeping in this post. The items that I ended up returning will be reviewed later this week. I was trying to pick out items from various brands for this experiment. I’ve had experiences with BB Dakota before and it’s almost a guarantee that a size XS will fit me. Sure enough, this Lynette dress by BB Dakota in slate blue was the item I ended up keeping.

• Clothing are affordable at Most of the items are under $100.00.
• One thing I love about is their selection. They carry a huge selection from clothing to shoes, accessories and even swimsuits. Their site is updated daily.
• Most of the items come with specific measurements. Please be sure to check them out before purchasing.
• Not only do they carry the latest fashion trends, they also have a vintage section - if that is something you’re looking for. Please note that all vintage sales are final. offers free shipping for all purchases over $75.00 within the continental U.S.

• Even though the clothing is for juniors, sizes tend to run large. Make sure you check the specific measurements before ordering.
• Items sell out quickly. Some of the items I've received are no longer available on their site. If you are considering buying something, you have to act quickly. Although, do check back frequently as their site is updated daily.

What I am wearing:
Dress: BB Dakota by Jack Lynette Dress - XS (buy here or small sizes here)
Shoes: Target Tawny Wedge Sandals in Taupe (buy here)

I didn't want to over-accessorize due to the rosette-like swirl details on the dress. I think it’s very cute just the way it is. The dress is 100% lined.  So, no worries about it being sheer. The color is fresh and quite unique. Unfortunately, an XS is sold out online, but there are a lot more to pick from on the site. has generously offered a discount code for readers of Please enter code "PETITELG" at check out for 15% off your entire purchase (code is case-sensitive). It is valid for customers in the US and Canada and is a one use per customer coupon. The coupon will be valid from today until May 27th 2011. Happy shopping!

I can't say I've ever browsed Lulus, so thank you for introducing me to a new site (not that I need to window shop any more, haha).

I really like the color of this dress. The details and shape makes it perfect for spring. I'm glad the weather's warmed up where you are, Sydney :)

You look darling, and your pros and cons of hit the nail right on the head! I love them and have had nothing but good customer service (they respond quickly to emails, are always super helpful, etc) but I wish things wouldn't go out of stock so darn fast---I've learned that if I think I want something, I definitely can't procrastinate. Good post!
