Lights, camera, action…

I mentioned yesterday that I love watching the Oscars, and I look forward to it every year.  I also mentioned that I would share a few of my favourite looks from the show.  It’s always been a great night for fashion, and I vividly remember as a little girl watching the Red Carpet show.

Can we just talk about Margot Robbie?  Did she look like an Oscar or what?  That woman can pull off just about anything.  Saoirse Ronan looked absolutely amazing in green Calvin Klein, and her mix matched earrings, TDF!  Charlize and Cate never seem to disappoint when it comes to their red carpet looks.  And Sophie Turner is looking very grown up these days.  What were your top Oscar Red Carpet looks?  And on that note, it’s time to end!

This is my show…

Tonight marks the 88th Academy Awards, or the Oscars.  A night that celebrates film and everything that goes along with the art form.  It’s one of my favourite nights of the year.  I have always been enamored with film making and I love all types of film.  What I appreciate most, is how expressive film making can be, and how the films can emote.

Yes, this years Oscars have been shrouded in controversy,  but when has it not?  With that being said, it’s always been about the fashion for me.  I live for the Red Carpet pre-show, and I always have.  They gowns… Oh, the gowns.  Ever since I was a little girl, I had dreams of one day walking the red carpet, in something so beautiful, that it made me cry.  If given the opportunity I may wear something similar to the look I am featuring today.

Of course my first Oscar look would be McQueen, even if it’s more K. Middy, than K. Moss… It’s a classic and elegant look, that screams Oscar!  The rest of my ideal look would be very simple.  Maybe a stud earring as well.  The lippie here is awesome, this Lipstick Queen colour actually mixes with your PH levels and adjusts to reveal your perfect berry shade.  It will be a part of my lippie collection very soon!  Also be on the look out for my favourite Oscar looks!  And on that note, let’s get this party started!

I’m your little scarlet, starlet, singin’ in the garden…

I may be jumping the gun a bit, but I was checking out Net-A-Porter the other night and I came across this adorable dress, and I thought it’s never to early to start thinking about red, white, and blue ensembles.  It’s one of my favourite colour combinations.  Redwhiteblue

I clearly can’t wait for Spring, and this dress is just darling.  I can’t wait to but out all of my sun dresses, this one, or something similar may make it’s way into my closet.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

Little town and a faded beauty…

This week I went casual again, this time a little different, a little edgier.  I paired my DMs with my distressed engineer stripped jeans and a warm slightly oversize sweater.

Sweater: J. Crew (I’m wearing a men’s Small), Jeans: Ann Taylor LOFT (old) similar here, here, Boots: Doc Marten’s.
The jeans are a bit more Spring/Summer, but the are so soft and comfortable.  And when paired with a sweater and combat boots, they can look a bit more seasonable.  I wear my DMs on most days off.  Mainly because I am trying to break them in still.  The break in process is very tedious.  And on that note, it’s time to end!

Baby we could go, Back to the basics…

For this post we are revisiting what I call a “Forever Wardrobe”.  Something I don’t take lightly.  I have been obsessed with clothing, shoes, and accessories for as along as I can remember.  These pieces are classy, quality, and timeless.  They can go from day to night easily.

With these pieces you can easily build a killer wardrobe.  This Frame Denim blouse is stunning.  The VB LBD?  Perfect.  What are some of your favourite wardrobe building blocks?  And on that note, it’s time to end.

‘Cause you’re starting to waste, within this teenage wasteland…

This weeks OOTD is more on the casual side.  For as much as I don’t mind my business casual/business wear work weeks, I do love nothing more than wearing jeans an a tee shirt.  This look I paired two oldies but goodies.  I mean I’ve had these pieces since I was in high school.  Which Says a lot about the quality of my Gap jeans.

Top: Gap (old) similar here, Jeans: Gap (old) similar here, here, Belt J. Crew (colour no longer available), Shoes: DMs (old)similar here, here.

Like I mentioned I’ve had these pieces for like ever, I think I got the jeans on sale for like $20.00.  I wear them all of the time on the weekends.  They are perfectly broken in and look great on.  They flare at the bottom, which due to my mediocre photography skills are not shown.  The same can be said about the top I’m wearing.  I think I was a Junior in high school when I bought it, and it’s always been in heavy rotation.  It’s so soft and easy to wear.  And it goes with everything.  And on that note, it’s time to end!
