while the styling of looks in juicy couture’s latest lookbook left a little to be desired (my opinion is humble, okay?), the overall collection is pretty impressive. to start, i can never resist a pair of pants with elastic cuffs. to end, it was a solid mix of prints, textures, and pieces for both dressy and casual occasions; you aren’t really left wanting for anything when it comes to that.

with the help of “social expert” derek blasberg, juicy couture has released a short film focusing on the dos and don’ts of holiday etiquette, but the real stars of this clever clip are the furry friends. yes, etiquette lessons with cats. (you’re gonna wanna watch this.) viewers are encouraged to visit the juicy couture website to purchase hostess gifts and party items and on december 13, mr. blasberg will be conducting a q&a on twitter at 3pm est, answering holiday-themed etiquette and style questions.

i recently stopped by juicy couture's bleecker street store, but before i did, i pondered my soon-to-be-made decision. up until then, all i really knew about juicy was that it is a california-based brand and that paris hilton loves its track suits. times have changed, but that first thought stays the same: it is still all about the sunshine state.

you should know that the brand has moved away from velour and terrycloth, revamped its boutiques to reflect a more grown-up spirit, and launched a holiday 2012 collection featuring rock ‘n’ roll details like rhinestones and studs without being over-the-top. i was pleased to find that there were more stand-out pieces than not, items that could be worn by a well-to-do twenty-something rather than a high schooler. sometimes brands have to move with their most loyal consumer; i respect a brand that makes that decision.

while you give yourself a juicy couture update, check out one of its many gift shops!
