There’s no denying the power of social media and its ability to get people talking. And now, we can see just which topics had Facebook users chatting. The site “has tapped its data from 2013 and released its version” of the most buzzed-about headlines from the past 12 months. Among them? The Conjuring  the year’s most-discussed movie. And the U.S.’s top topics: football’s Big Game and and the government shutdown. See the full list here.

Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.

Vote For Style

Last week, we asked our Members to help us create a never-before Boutique for Rue La La. After “liking” us on Facebook, Fans had the chance to vote for must-have items they wanted to see featured in a Boutique on Rue La La. Once the voting was closed, we rounded up the 24 highest-rated items and put them in our Vote For Style Boutique (opening today at 11AM ET).

If you missed your chance to vote, don’t fret. Look for more Boutiques like this one in the future on our Facebook page (so if you haven’t liked us yet, make sure you do). And just because you didn’t vote doesn’t mean you won’t have a chance to shop. Our fans did an amazing job curating this Boutique – and we have a feeling it won’t disappoint.

Spring 2011

Now that winter’s run its course, we’re busy getting prepped for warmer weather (an animal of its own). We asked our lovely Facebook Fans to post their most pressing questions. And one of our Rue stylists, Maureen, has all the answers when it comes to dressing for the season.

Q: What’s the one must-have outfit piece this spring? – Caitlin O.
A: Invest in a dress that can go from day to night. Try the new longer length to pair with flats in the daytime and high wedge espadrilles at night. For day, throw on a woven leather belt and a light cardigan or jean jacket. For night, go for drippy rhinestones to up the glitz.

Q: What’s the rule on nail polish color this season? Toes only? Fingers only? Matching toes & fingers? – Shawn F.
A: We love mixing up fingers and toes, but we try to keep the colors in the same family. Spring for a coral on your fingers and a hot pink on your toes, or try a ballet slipper pink paired with cherry red.

December 22, 2010

We at Rue La La believe it’s the personal touches that make the holidays so special. So we asked how you’re “Letting It Rue” this season. Here, some of your special holiday traditions.

Heather Z Christmas Eve: Chinese takeout for dinner, watching old home movies and reading T’was the Night Before Christmas.

Pamela S – Starting a new one this year – instead of exchanging gifts we will be collecting donations and giving to families that would otherwise not have a Christmas.

Stephanie H – Watching Christmas movies with my cousins in matching PJs, drinking hot cocoa & only lights are fire & tree.

Lindsey N – Pierogi!
