stripey & strappy

Sometimes when I’m bored, I go to Target. Terrible habit. But it’s a 5-minute walk from my apartment! So last night, when my plans were in flux, I walked in for no reason and walked out $93 poorer. Oops.

But I also walked out with this little number:

Draped Double Layer Tank Dress (Grey/Pebble): Mossimo (size M). It mystified me on the hanger, what with its curious double layer/tank lining, but trying it on was a pleasant surprise – especially considering the stripes… cuz that’s a lotta stripes.

the tragic style of 16-year-old lauren alaina

All season on American Idol, Lauren Alaina Suddeth (yes, that is her real name; she prettied it up by just using her first and middle name for her journey to “superstardom” apparently) has had absolutely abysmal style. She’s even admitted that the stylists hate her choices and are frustrated by her, which is a little funny. Tonight, however, I was finally pushed to posting about her, as she wore this little number in the finale:

Oh, HONEY.

oscars 2011!

What a party! A boring show was livened up by a great group of friends for last night’s Academy Awards, and I had so, so, so much fun. Huge shoutout of course to my cohost Lissette, whose beautiful apartment served as party central. We had been prepping, brainstorming, and purchasing for weeks, and it all came together beautifully. But for me, it did not start so beautifully. Ahem:

Yes, I did this on purpose. But it looked good after, I swear!

stripes & sparkles

Why yes, it’s a random post to this neglected little blog!

Last night I met up with my friends Sarah and Amelia (in town from Boston), and it was just SO good to see them. It really made me wish I had more girlfriends in the city. We talk and laugh and get along so easily. Nothing is off limits. I miss them so much. And, as we all said, it’s truly amusing to think that the three of us – once living in a dorm, eating Cheez-Its and watching Days of Our Lives together almost every afternoon – would end up such fabulous city girls 7 years later.

I tried to dress the part of fab city girl anyway!

best & worst of the Emmys 2010

What a fun show the Emmys were this year! Say what you will about Jimmy Fallon, but I thought he did a pretty decent job hosting, if only for that fantastic Glee-ful opening number. I was super disappointed not to see LOST walk away with any big awards for its final season – awards shows have a history of rewarding an entire body of work at the end, so I thought there was a possibility of this happening – but I was happy to see so many first-time winners.

As for the fashions, well, they were trend-tastic! And not too many serious mishaps. Well… ok, a few.

But let’s start with trends. I think the biggest one on the 2010 red carpet was…

1-Shoulder Chic

L–R: Jane Lynch in Ali Rahimi, Emily Deschanel in Max Azria Atelier, Jane Krakowski in Escada, Emily Blunt in Christian Dior.

sparkly accessories, please

Nothing super special in this jeans, top & cardi ensemble today; it’s really the accessories that make it shine – literally.

Top: Mossimo (size M), sequin-trimmed oatmeal cardigan: Express (size M), jeans: American Eagle (size 10). The really fun parts, however, are the headband, necklace, and all the sequins.

floral tank, cardi & cords

Just the basics today, folks:

These may be a bit more autumn-like colors, but with the weather as bipolar as it is, I don’t mind so much. Maroon cords: Ann Taylor Loft (size 12), sequin-trimmed oatmeal cardigan: Express (size M).
