Wizard Fashion

Happy Tuesday! As many of you know, I am a huge awards show junkie. I love them! Because really, what’s not to love? This past Sunday’s Golden Globes did not disappoint. Fashion, celebrities, sometimes drunk celebrities (yes I am  thinking of you Emma Thompson), and good jokes (Tina Fey’s joke about Leonardo DiCaprio? Perfection). By far my favorite part was the fashion. My friend came over, we split a bottle of wine and gossiped about everyone’s looks for the evening.

At first glance, our favorite Hogwart’s attendee Emma Waston’s dress looked great. At that point we only saw it from the waist up and we thought it was a good color and she looked fabulous.

Later on we saw a picture of the dress – whoa! It wasn’t really a dress at all, more of a top with a long skirt in the front – or maybe just half a dress? Anyways, we loved it! I think it was so fun and daring. I would love to see this trend stay around for a while.

What did you all think of Emma’s Dior gown? Do you think it’s a trend that will stay?

I’m In Love With Crewnecks

This is true, I have had a love affair with crewnecks for many years. They are amazing! And finally they are widely available for women! No more awkward fits and baggy shoulders!

Here are some of my favorite crewnecks. I could wear them everyday.photo 2 (2)photo 3photo (3)photo 2

They go with everything! Here I’ve paired them all with jeans and chucks, but they can easily be dressed up or down. You can add jewelry or a nice infinity scarf  or pair them with nicer pants and flats. I love the gray sweater because its so versatile. I’ve worn it by itself or piled on jewelry and bolder make up for a concert. Here I paired it with a chambray button up and statement necklace. Something that can easily go from day to night.
