What I Wore: Birthday Suite

what I wore: dress – $10 rack vintage via grey dog, heels – kelsi dagger, earrings – vintage

Yesterday was my birthday and I thought this peplum dress in a minty teal was perfect for a day at the office where I still wanted to feel special.

What I Want: High Tops

Ever since I saw Kate Bosworth wearing this I have wanted wedged sneakers. I’m not exactly in the financial place to splurge on Isabel Marant, so I’m weighing the other options. I’ve always loved wearing comfortable kicks but at under 5’3″ I don’t like to sacrifice the height. These would provide the perfect marriage of comfort and fashion! I found some fun options on ebay as well.

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?

Love it or Hate it: The Ballerina Bun

I noticed today that J. Mo was getting a LOT of flack about her ballerina bun. Everyone from stylist to the fug girls have something negative to say. And it’s not just about her. They are attacking the very bun itself! For shame! Do people really hate the ballerina bun? It’s one of my favorite looks ever….have I been shamelessly touting a faux pas? I almost refuse to believe that everyone hates it so much. How about you?
Even on Jennifer, I think the bun is darling. Her makeup may be a tad overdone for the big hair but that’s a very minor critique.

I don’t think I’ll ever stop flying my flag for the big ole bun. Hope that’s ok with you…

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.

Kim K, Please Go Away

Personal Rant: Is anyone else just so increasingly and abundantly sick of her? I mean, how many times can they play her freaking wedding? I’ve had to avoid E! for weeks in order to miss seeing her all the freaking time. Does she ever have any personal time when the cameras aren’t around (save the 3 hours (estimate) in the morning when she’s being put together). Seriously, what is so¬†pleasant¬†and fantastic about her and her family that the people of America (neigh, the world!) cannot get enough? I’m really not trying to be hateful. I’m just exasperated with seeing her on all of my favorite gossip sites and EVERYWHERE.
Doesn’t this hat just piss you off?

I was inspired by this ever-so-polite post by the fuggirls.
