We love this outfit for a day at the office or a night out with friends! Printed pants are one of our favorite trends this fall and as always black booties are a wardrobe staple!

Naya Rivera’s sleek and sexy gown was amazing! The gold lock and hints of gold on the oversized Essex Clutch amplify the cut outs that make this dress so gorgeous!

This falafel sandwich may not look like much but this truck had the longest lines everyday! You could even smell the fresh pitas baking inside the Taim Mobile!
The empanadas at Nuchas were the perfect size to try a few! Our favorite part was the small letter baked in to each one to differentiate between flavors! How clever!
And since we didn’t completely satisfy our food truck hunger on 5th Ave, we ended our journey at the Long Island City Flea & Food over the weekend! Here we tried it all from the pulled pork sandwich from Astoria’s Butcher Bar to meatball sliders from Bill’s Balls! We will most definitely be back!

Deux Lux Memo Weekender in JadeOf all the weekenders in our line, my favorite is this Memo piece! With the chevron trend exploding right now, I like to mix it up a little bit by having the pattern on something less obvious then the shift dresses and tops I’m seeing all over! The straw and raffia make it the perfect addition for my sunny vacation!
Deux Lux Jules Clutch in PeachNeon is still one of my favorite trends but I love how this clutch is a neutral peach with a pop of neon. It’s fun but not too in your face – perfect for cocktails with the girls!
Chantecaille Powder Sunscreen Protecting my skin from the sun is super important to me! The powder blends so well and leaves no oily residue that most sunscreens do! I love that I can carry it anywhere!
I know I’m not alone when I say 90% of my reason for watching any award shows is to see the fabulous fashion on the red carpet. We rounded up our 5 favorite looks from last night and paired them with clutches from our Spring 2013 Collection. Enjoy : )
Loving Selena Gomez in this white hot dress by Versace. The pops of neon keep it young and fun. The Jules Clutch with a neon turn lock is perfect for this look!
We think our Sahara Clutch is the perfect complement to Hayden Panettiere’s simple yet stunning black gown by Halston Heritage. If you look closely you can see teeny crystals in her side swept do!
It’s always fun to see Taylor Swift break away from her super girly looks and dress her age! This metallic blue mini dress by Zuhair Murad is one of her sexiest looks yet! The Adele Clutch is a glamorous addition to this leggy look.
Nicki Minaj surprised everyone when she traded in her curve hugging mini dresses and pants suits for this elegant flowing gown and we are so glad she did! We decided to pair her look with the Empire State Clutch to add a little edge in true Nicki style.
Emmy Rossum is always the epitome of classic beauty and last night was no different. We are drooling over the polka dot inserts on this floor length black gown by Zuhair Murad! The Sahara Clutch gives it just the right amount of sparkle!
Alright, we admit it - we were excited to see our Empire State Clutch in one of Daily Crush’s spring posts, but, um hello?! Have you seen the blue zebra walls in their laundry room? Yes, a laundry room! From amazing cocktail recipes for the weekend to savvy fashion ideas and everything in between, we turn to Daily Crush quite frequently for tips. We dare you to peruse Katie’s blog and find a single outfit you don’t love!
Not only are we loving the style inspired by one of the most talked about movies this year, but we also don’t mind we mind seeing Leo’s beautiful face plastered all over NYC! Since we don’t fancy the idea of waiting until Halloween to channel our inner Daisy Buchanan, we’ve put together this show stopping (and totally wearable) Gatsby inspired look. Let your feathers fly!
5 Life Lessons I Learned from My Business Partner; My Mom
Fati and Sara, Founders of Deux Lux
You may or may not know that I founded Deux Lux back in 2005 with a very special business partner, my mom. Since then, we’ve made it our goal to arm every woman with our glamorous, edgy and ethical handbags everywhere from Tulsa to Tokyo.
While we approach Mother’s Day this Sunday, I recognize that we (Deux Lux) wouldn’t be where we are today without my mom’s support, guidance and partnership. She’s been a tremendous cheerleader in my life – for example, when she supported my decision to transition from a career in law to designing handbags – and I wanted to share my gratitude with you by being her biggest cheerleader.
As an only child, working with my mom has been a blessing in bringing us closer than ever before. Through our travels, our designing processes and yes, sometimes even a business disagreement here and there, we’ve learned and grown along the way by remembering one rule; to have fun, always.
There are countless things I can thank my mom for this Mother’s Day, but I wanted to share a few priceless life lessons she’s taught me along the way:
STYLE: Always Leave the House Pulled Together
Even if she’s just running to the grocery store, my mom is always put together. This has always stuck with me and as a result, I like to make sure I always look presentable; accessorized with a little lip gloss, blush and mascara. If I wake up feeling blah or with a blemish on my chin I like to paint on my cat eye and voilà, I feel better immediately!
BUSINESS: Instincts Above All
The best business advice my mother has given me throughout my career has been to follow my instincts. I’ve practiced this from day one of Deux Lux and they haven’t led me astray yet!
DISAGREEMENTS: Laughter Overrides Anger
It’s not realistic to agree with on everything, especially when it comes to business. Even though they are rare, my mom and I do have disagreements from time to time, which we’ll usually resolve with straightforward conversation that always ends with laughter.
EMPOWERMENT: Confidence is Key
My mom always said thatyou can look great from head to toe but if you don’t have confidence to carry yourself it will show. In her opinion, it’s the greatest accessory a girl can have. Growing up her support and style of parenting really nurtured my confidence. She also really pushed education and felt that there was nothing more empowering than knowledge.
GROWTH: Paying it Forward
The most amazing thing my mom has taught me was to know compassion – whether it was saving animals from the side of the road, feeding homeless people or donating money to different causes, my mom has always had the biggest heart. It is humbling and has shaped who I am today. We’ve been so fortunate in our success but her influence grounds me and reminds me that with success must come generosity and paying it forward.
Thanks mom for all that you are and how much you influence me daily – Happy Mother’s Day!
One major perk of being a Deux Lux girl is a neverending bag collection! We get to test out new styles daily and although its impossible to choose just one…we did! From those who live and breathe Deux Lux, here are the favorites of the Spring 2013 Collection!
Sara Naghedi(owner & designer of Deux Lux)
"Loving the denim right now! I think the denim weave gives a little edge to a classic look. Even love wearing my denim bag with denim shirts or jeans!”
Sarah Jones (director of sales)
“Green always gets me excited! Not only does it match my eyes (thanks Mom & Dad), but it goes with just about everything in my wardrobe. Obviously, it was meant to be.”
Kelly Cameron(design & development manager)
"I’m a navy girl through and through! This hobo is so transitional and fits everything I need!”
"I couldn’t pick just one; coral is such a happy color for the season! The size of the messenger is great for everyday use and the clutch looks amazing with any outfit, day or night!”
