Juicy Couture

I had this photo taken next to a Juicy Couture display in front of Macys last Sunday at the Lolita Meet-up. Aren't those manikans adorable? How about the pink hair? I was asked if I was a Juicy Couture Model. Nice compliment. Now that sounds like a fun opportunity. In any case I really know nothing about "Juicy". So here is a quick post about what I have learned. Juicy us a brand of clothing, fashion, jewelry and fragrances. I also learned that there is a local Juicy store at Phipps in Atlanta. I promise to go check it out sometime this month!

Juicy Couture is a contemporary line of both casual and dressy apparel based in Arleta, California, founded by Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor. Now owned by the Liz Claiborne fashion company, Juicy is known for their signature velour tracksuits as well as other clothing and accessories. The line is sold in upscale department stores (Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue), as well as Juicy Couture flagship stores and boutiques. Juicy Couture is marketed as a high-end clothing line at an affordable price, and is aimed at women ages 14–26.

First page I came across was a wonderful selection of charms from Juicy. One of my 6 Lolita goals for the year is about Charm bracelets. (Find yourself a pretty charm bracelet. It can be a lot of fun to find lolita charms to add to it, keys, hearts, crowns, bows, butterflies. It’s traditional to buy charms for special events too, to help you remember them.) The first charm I am going to buy will be something related to the the High Tea Meet-up in 3 weeks.

Polyvore has an extensive page of Juicy Couture accessories and clothing. This is the official blog of Polyvore Juicy Couture.

Serena Van Der Woodsen at her mom's wedding in Gossip Girl's final episode of the first season. Love the frills, the flowers and all the accessories.

The packing of the Juicy fragrances are adorable. This is Juicy's "It Girl" fragrance.
It is described as "Introducing Juicy Couture's 'it girl' fragrance. Where she goes, the party follows. Her rule? Do the don'ts: show off, be loud, spoil yourself, talk to strangers-and love life! This scent opens with a top of succulent pink grape accord frolicking in a field of natural orange flower and mandarin. A heart of blushed plum and honeysuckle flirts with bold star jasmine. At back, creamy sandalwood lazes with moist amber in a haze of rich vanilla. Mix it with love and make the world smell good." Have to check that out!

For no real reason at all I just had to include this gorgeous ad for the Juicy "It Girl" fragrance. I adore her black dress, the handbag and the beautiful design. Notice the glitter (fairy dust?) that is being blown from her hand onto the guy? Makes you think about a possible anime story or fairy tale. Please share your thoughts.
