Green With Envy – Golden Globes 2011

17 Jan
Another fashion trend that did not go unnoticed on the red carpet tonight was the fabulous ladies making those in their path “Green with Envy”.

All About Neutral’s – Golden Globe Fashion 2011

17 Jan
I have to admit that when it comes to awards shows, the Golden Globes are kind of a bore for me.  I watched for all of five minutes, before I had to switched to Desperate Housewives for a little Sunday night entertainment.  However, I have always been and will always be a fan of the red carpet! 
There were for sure a few stand out trends for the night “Lady in Red”, “Green With Envy”,  “Sexy in Black” but my favorite had to be the lovely ladies that were “All About Neutral”! My favorite of the night was Anne Hathaway wearing Armani… sleeves, backless and sparkles!  Need I say more…. She looked absolutely stunning.  
Sandra Bullock looked age appropriate, wearing Jenny Packham.  Lea Michele seems to have found a silhouette & designer that works for her,  wearing Oscar de la Renta. Jennifer Lopez, looked like a modern day princess, wearing Zuhair Murad.  Dianna Agron had a slight Old Hollywood  glam feel, wearing J. Mendel.  Scarlett Johansson wearing Elie Saab.  Not what you would typically expect but it works in her favor.  Then there was Emma Stone wearing Calvin Klein rocking a very understated look, the true definition of “simple chic”. 
What was your favorite trend of the night?

Happy Monday + Weekly Runway Wish List

11 Oct
Photos via: Style.com
Well another week is upon us and I for one am thrilled.  This Friday Im heading to San Francisco for work, which means I will be staying the weekend with my family and picking up my little pup Frankie who has been spending the last month with Grandma due to all of my recent traveling.  I cant wait to see my little one, I miss him so much.  It has been way too quite around the apartment without him.  Although with my recent schedule I am glad he’s been at Grandmas where he can get the attention he deserves. 
So with the fabulous week ahead I thought I would share with you my Runway wish list featuring one designer and five looks from any current or future season that I would like to be wearing this week.  Im currently loving Rebecca Taylor’s Fall 2010 line, especially these five looks featured above. Everything about it is so perfect.  The colors, the textures, the laid back luxury!  Im going to try to recreate at least one of these looks with my current wardrobe and will be on the hunt for a pair of wide leg gray pants just like these! 
Rebecca Taylor inspires me… what fashions inspire you this week?
Happy Monday!

Etsy Must Have: Leilanni Land

1 Sep
In theory a shrug, a skirt and a sweatshirt are all very simple items, but then I discovered Leilanni Land and they became so much more.  In Leilanni Land a simple shrug is transformed into a cocoon cardi-cape in black and while chiffon, $120; a basic pull-over in magically changed into a pointy sleeve sweatshirt in heather gray fit for a superhero, $45; and a basic skirt becomes a sexy elastic cage skirt with underlining, on sale for $84. I mean seriously, Its clear to see that Leilanni has a knack for making the ordinary look extraordinary.

Emmy’s Fashion Trends 2010

30 Aug
Royal Hues & Ruffles
Sparkling Champagne
Although I was a bit underwhelmed in terms of the overall fashion statement at the 2010 Emmy’s, we must admit when was the last time we were actually overwhelmed at an awards show?  None the less I still like to keep hope alive.  Above are my favorite picks form the ladies that I saw.  Once I pulled them all together I found that of the six I liked they all fell in to one of two trends that seemed to be occurring on the red carpet, so I grouped them as such. I have to say my #1 would have to be January Jones, for the simple fact that she took a risk.  I love the color, the volume and the texture of the dress she choose, her new shoulder length bob was a winner too! Well done ladies! 
Who were your stand outs from the evening?
p.s.  Congrats to MadMen for winning a Emmy for Best Drama… much deserved!
