Fashion Friday: Purple Haze

Hello again you fashion fiends! If you’re looking for some colorful inspiration to brighten up a dull wardrobe, then you’re in the right place. And let’s be honest, what woman doesn’t want a wardrobe makeover?? In this week’s post we’re showing off some fab finds in this season’s hottest color–purple!

If you’re a gossip hound like us, then you’ve probably noticed that a ton of celebrities are stepping up their fashion game this year. One of the most popular choices in color is purple—lavender, plum and everything in between! Celebs are even wearing this grapey color in every way possible! From simple accessories like jewelry and shoes, to show stoppers like all-over purple ensembles or even hair!

If you’re not too adventurous with color, start small—a cute pair of lavender pumps or a plum colored handbag will do the trick too! If you’re ready to show the world just how crazy you are, go for a bright purple skirt or a sexy, purple accented bodycon dress.

If purple’s not your color, no worries! We have tons of other colorful options in our LightInTheBox Fashion Collection, check it out!

Wedding Wednesday: Be Our Guest! Pt. 1

No matter how many weddings you’ve attended, there’s no doubt that it feels great to be involved in someone’s special day! And there’s no doubt that whenever you get that invitation in the mail that your mind starts racing—who will be my date, what gift should I give the couple, what am I going to wear?? If you’re still searching for that perfect outfit for this summer’s beach or church weddings, then this week’s post is just for you!

As always, check out our LightInTheBox Weddings & Events Collection for my fashionable options!

Church

If you’re attending a church wedding this summer you’ll want a more structured look; cocktail dresses are perfect for this occasion! You can try a bit more of a glam look, with sequins or metallic detail, but remember to dress appropriately for church. And be sure to avoid wearing white, black or anything too bright—you wouldn’t want to upstage the bride!

Beach

E-Health Electronic Cigarette + 10 Refills and Charger Set


For this weeks LITB Lab we shall take a look at the E-Health Electronic Cigarette + 10 Refills and Charger Set. In these times where more and more focus is placed on long term health and longevity, more and more people are beginning to realise the health benefits (not to mention the huge amount of money you can save yourself!) that quitting smoking can bring you. However, as the majority of you out there who have tried to quit smoking before will know, it is not the easiest thing in the world to do – especially if your will power wanes easily. BUT saying that, quitting now is easier than it has ever been before;a wide selection of nicotine gum and nicotine patches are available, articles are easily accessible online, you can even go for hypnotherapy! Sometimes though, what you miss is not just the nicotine, but the feeling of holding an actual cigarette; of the inhalation and exhalation that the other products designed to help you quit just can’t provide.


E-Cigarettes are the key to this conundrum! Designed in the same shape and colour as an ordinary cigarette it will act as a replacement whilst you gradually wean yourself off that tobacco reliance completely. The E-Cigarette can be charged almost anywhere, coming with AC, USB and Car cigarette lighter powered chargers all included.
There has never been a better time than now to quit smoking! Keep your health, keep your money and prove your independence from addiction!

From sexy to sweet and everywhere in between!

LITB Labs: 2 Piece Bicycle SpokeLit LED Safety Lights


For the weekly LITB Lab blogpost today we are going to take a look at the aesthetically pleasing and incredibly practical SpokeLit Bicycle Spoke LED Safety Lights. Bicycles are a fantastic, eco friendly, cheap and physically beneficial way to get around. Whether it’s commuting to work, cycling to the shops or just a nice scenic bike ride there are plenty of things about cycling that trumps driving. However, despite the numerous benefits cycling can bring, one thing that you should never underestimate on two wheels is your own safety. And that’s why we here at LightInTheBox would ALWAYS recommend that you wear a helmet (preferably a patterned helmet to maximize visibility) and make sure you have front and rear lights for evening riding.


These SpokeLit Bicycle Spoke LED Safety Lights are an additional feature to make you even more visible to drivers if you’re on your bicycle after dark.
They come in either red, green or blue and have two modes; a constant beam that will make your bicycle look like it has a brightly coloured wheel spinning brilliantly by the tire, or a flashing beam that is clear and easily visible to other road users. Perfect if you have “coolness conscious” kids, who can keep safe without losing their street cred! The SpokeLits couldn’t be easier to use, clipping easily onto the spokes of your bicycle wheels, and turning on and off with one simple button. Each set comes with two SpokeLit LED Safety Lights; one for the front wheel and one for the back wheel.
And, for the next 6 days it’s 50% off! For just US $16.38 US $8.19 can you really afford not to?
