What I Wore: Mohair & a Bowtie

what I wore: dress – thrifted miss dorby (find on ebay), mohair sweater via cheap thrills, bowtie – target, heels – forever21

When I mix patterns, (or prints or fabrics or colors) I try to lean towards whimsical, rather than take my outfit (or myself) too seriously. I love to have fun with my clothes/accessories but when taking a “risk”, I find it’s best to be light-hearted.

What I Wore: Little House

(what I wore: skirt & blouse – vintage from potter’s house, collar clip – grey dog, earrings – charm & chain, heels – forever21, belt – old navy)
This outfit felt a little Laura Ingalls Wilder when I put it together but I was in a hurry and I’d been jonesing to wear this skirt so I just went with it. However, now that I see it in photo-form, it might have surpassed prairie and moved all the way over to grand ole opry tryouts? I have to admit, I’m not a fan of country but I have been listening to some old-school Dolly Parton lately. Does Jolene count? I guess it does. Maybe she got in a little bit…
Anyway, is it too far?

Globes Best Dressed

Impressed: MVPs

Davis
If you saw The Help, you know Viola Davis did a fantastic job but looked about 60. At the Globes, she looked fresh, young and rocked up. Most Impressive.
Danes
I usually like what Claire Danes wears (that might be because I adore her hubby, Hugh Dancy). But she does tend to play it safe. Her dress at the GG was nothing but fabulous.
Mara
Rooney Mara seems to have completely changed her personality, along with her looks for the role as Lisbeth Salander. Whatever she’s done, she looks gorgeous &she worked it in that gorgeous black gown.
Biel
A lot of people hated Jessica Biel’s lacy, cream confection. I was not one of them. I thought she looked darling and different. Plus, did you see her strut in that thing?

Well Played: Played it safe and it served them well.

Witherspoon, Vergara, Jolie, Kidman – all in figure-flattering silhouettes with great hair and makeup.

Unimpressed: Disappointed

Chastain
I’m really into Jessica Chastain. I keep routing for her but she continually disappoints me. I would rather have seen her in an outfit from The Help.
Kunis
Mila Kunis looked so great all last season. The glimpse of her nipple was the most exciting thing about this dismal dress.
Deschanel
I want to like Zooey Deschanel but I just can’t. And to quote the Eagles, I can’t tell you why. I can tell you I have no idea what she wore to the Globes because her hair was absolutely HORRIFYING.

I Expected More From

Portman
Natalie Portman
This is basically the first time we’ve seen Natalie on the red carpet in a year. The dress/hair are boring and she obviously has a great body… I’m disappointed.
Williams
I absolutely love Michelle Williams. Therefore, I think I hold her to a higher standard. I think she looks darling but I wish she looked phenomenal.
Winslet
Kate is another favorite of mine. I hate this dress, it doesn’t fit and certainly doesn’t do anything for her lovely figure.
Gosling

Where the F was he?

Not A Fan of Fergie Fug

I must preface this by saying I am not a Fergie fan. I don’t understand her appeal and I can never get over her peeing on stage during a BEP concert. Yeah her music is ok but I just don’t like her and I can’t really explain why.
Here is a great reason to be annoyed with her. Why oh why would you EVER wear a dress that visibly cannot zip. There are so very many options of what to do when you realize it doesn’t zip and there are precious few minutes to spare.
  1. Choose another dress
  2. Wear a jacket
  3. Get it altered
  4. Skip the event
Next time, Fergie, please choose another option wisely.

What I Wore: Basics

(what i wore: jeans – levi, blouse – beulah from shop ultra, flats – jeffrey campbell)
Casual Fridays cause a slump in my creativity. There is often something freeing (for me) in knowing you must look proper for the office. It sets me exploring different directions for outfits to take. Most Fridays, I try to be comfortable. It’s ok to take a day off, right?

Celebrity Judgement: Teen Choice Awards

BAD

Is it just me or does Fergie keep looking worse? Not a fan of the roots, kinda like the dress but cannot get over how harsh her eyebrow arch is!

I typically think Emma Stone looks great. Here she looks incredibly odd. That’s really all I can say. Like I can’t imagine the same person picking out that gorgeous peach sheath for the golden globes and then choosing this.

Cameron Diaz: Will she ever age? Or fatten?

Various Kardashians: THEY’RE ALL SO FREAKING MADE UP! It seriously bothers me. Khloe looks Amazonian. Kendall’s hair is terrifying. Kim looks like she bought her dress at BeBe. Kourtney looks mehhh. Kylie looks fairly cute. Ugh I’m exhausted….

GOOD

Well done Rachel Bilson & Nina Dobrev. Both look happy, adorable and are adhering to my rule of “Pick One: boobs, back or legs”. I can’t stop drooling over Bilson’s booties.

UGLY

I never want to make people feel bad about their weight. With that said, when you are a celebrity you must dress to be captured on film. Also, if your legs are less than stellar – don’t wear a super short dress.
Looking WAY BIGGER than you are offenders: Demi Lovato and Zooey Deschanel.
