My Oscars Best Dressed

I was less than ecstatic about the looks that walked the red carpet last night at the 84th Annual Academy Awards. I thought many women really missed the mark, or I just wasn't in love at first glance - which is the true test. So, I only have 3 favorite looks from the Oscars and about 20 looks I hated (but I will spare you the rant).

Milla Jovovich was the first person I saw to walk the red carpet and remained my favorite throughout the entire evening. She was show-stopping in the Ellie Saab embellished one shoulder gown. In fact, I wanted to steal it I loved it so much. Well done, Milla!

Another favorite was Emma Stone, of course. She has outdone herself this season and I was so happy that she did not leave me wanting more. She was not only eye-catching in the fuschia Giambattista Valli gown, but also looked simultaneously sophisticated and fun. Major girl crush. 

Finally, I loved Octavia Spencer! She looked so beautiful in the silver Tadashi Shoji gown and it was so flattering on her figure. And just when I thought she couldn't look any better, she got on stage and showed the most raw emotion we've seen all season. Winning + Tadashi look great on this Alabama native!

All three are beautiful, talented ladies that made the 5 hour Oscars ordeal worth watching!

work for it

This morning I got the official word that I will brought in on a really cool project at work, where I will be involved from conception to execution. The event involves all-things Atlanta: a Foundation, athletes and a great downtown venue. Needless to say, I'm thrilled!

For those who have the pleasure of hearing about my "work woes" (cough: my dad and my roommate), they will surely understand my excitement. I have just short of begged to be more involved in a wider variety of things at work, with an emphasis on hospitality events. And thus far, nothing has worked out in my favor. I felt like I was going the extra mile to show that I was ready to take on new projects and more leadership, but was feeling overlooked and discouraged. Now my time has arrived and I'm so excited! It goes to show that hard work and patience (though I have very little) do pay off.

Courageous Choices

Often times, a courageous fashion choice has 50/50 chance of being a major hit or a major bust. Last night at the SAG Awards, I loved two looks that were not your traditional "red carpet gowns." Emma Stone and Rose Byrne looked unbelievable! While most looks coming down the red carpet left me disappointed and made me ask, "where was their stylist tonight?!" these two ladies owned their unique show-stopping looks.
Emma Stone looked adorably stunning in a tea-length Alexander McQueen.
Rose Byrne in an Elie Saab jumpsuit.

brown + black

I have learned that if I don't pick out my clothes for work the night before, I may as well set myself up to be late, stressed, and completely unhappy with what I'm wearing. Oh and can I remind you that I can wear jeans and casual dress every day?! Yeah, and I still have a problem.

Last night was no exception. I pulled out a brown and camel cardigan and jeans, and was looking for a shirt to wear. I immediately went to a black tank top, but hesitated when I looked at the two together. After much thought (and way too much agonizing for a Friday, when I know there's going to be less than 10 people in the office) my lovely roomie told me to go with a green tee. But this morning, I just couldn't let the black tank go. So I went with it. And it hit me like a ton of bricks - I LOVE brown and black together. I just love it. I'm always pairing the two colors together. Since I do not catalog my own looks with photos (sarcam - because who really does that?!), here are some looks that I would most definitely wear myself, taken from my pinterest boards -

23 days

In just a few short weeks, I will be taking in the sites of Madrid, Spain with one of my best friends, Stephanie. With every pssing day, I become more and more anxious to get there! So until then, I will be delving into books and reading anything I can in preparation for the trip. Thanks to a dear friend, I can get started right away...

I can't get enough of the Sh*t Girls Say episodes, and most of the spin-offs. And I can't just watch them once; I've seen each multiple times! So in case you need a laugh today, or tomorrow, or the next - watch this.

For more laughs, watch Sh*t Nobody Says.
