Artist Lee Lucas and the Hottest New Bracelet, "The Looksy"

Sileelucas looksynger/songwriter, Lee Lucas performs all over LA with her band NeonWest and says that her music career inspired her to create the Looksy. She explains how "The Looksy" came about, “It was out of necessity. One night, at a gig, I was rushing to get up on stage, when I realized I hadn’t checked my lipstick. Looking around, I realized there was no mirror to be found and no time to go find one. That’s when the Looksy was born. I thought, wouldn’t it be great to have a mirror that you wear, a trendy bracelet that also doubled as a touch-up mirror?”

The Looksy is a leather bracelet/wristband with a mirror on it, perfect for a quick makeup check with a flip of the wrist. It currently comes in two styles, “Rockstar” and “Popstar” and four colors, black, white, dark brown and purple.

Llooksy twoee talks about how it all began with the early days of the Looksy. “I started with ribbon, glue and mirrors from craft stores. I have kept a lot my prototypes; it’s hilarious and inspiring when I look back on what they were when I first started creating The Looksy. They’ve really progressed, and now I am truly proud of The Looksy line.”

The Looksy is featured at Bohemian Exchange Boutique (1358 Abbot Kinney), and Rosenthal Estates Winery in Malibu, and others. Celebrities can be seen wearing the Looksy, such as singer Vicci Martinez (from NBC’s hit show, the Voice) and actress/model, Sarah Hester.
