Oscar Sunday

Remember when I said fashion was lagging at this years Globes soiree and kindly asked the leading ladies to please bring their A game to the Oscars? Well they listened.

Winners circle.

Meryl Streep in Chris March
SJP in Chanel Haute Couture
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa
Carey Mulligan in Prada
Cameron Diaz in Oscar de la Renta
Diane Kruger in Chanel Haute Couture

And the what was she thinking award - Charlize Theron in Christian Dior Haute Couture. No words.

What Are the Chances?

I was seriously just going to post a photo today of pretty little Lauren Conrad wearing this amazing Mara Hoffman creation and wonder where on earth I might possibly track it down.....

And on my daily trip to my favorite online shopping mecca {shopbop}, I see that it is newly available. Newly as in TODAY. Coincidence? Me thinks not. It is $298 and so hard to justify. But damnit, it's pretty hot.

Cool Blog Discovery

I'm attempting this tomorrow. I am really bored with my closet and its contents and I love PS (Proenza Schouler and the cool DIY blog P.S. - I made this). I'll report back with the deets.

This is the most amazing dress I have seen in a long time. I just wish I had $895 and an occasion to wear it. Philip Lim is a god.

Trendspiration: Bev Hillls 90210

After parking on the couch and watching a good 5 hours of Beverly Hills 90210 (the orig) this weekend I discovered two things. 1) I wish I had been a student at West Bev and 2) the looks of Brenda, Donna, and Kelly are making a comeback. It's been said before, but we've surely learned that history repeats itself. And wouldn't we rather it be this than Saved By the Bell??

Seriously - when you are shopping you will notice more lace, bodysuits, light denim, boyfriend blazers, and more.... just no scrunchies.

Trend Report: Lots O' Lace

Forget about what you just saw at NYFW Fall 2010 and get your mind right in the here and now.

I am so obsessed with everything below, especially the bodysuit, an item of clothing I vowed never to wear.

ella moss antoinette lace dress $138
bb dakota barretta top $70
joie jayce lace sleeve voile top $152
pencey seamed leggings $132

Winter Kate

By Nicole Richie. Soooooooo amazing. I have ranted about celebrity designers before, but this one knows what she is doing. The Opy Jacket {that gorgeous green silk number below} needs to become part of my wardrobe. Immediately.

This is just a glimpse. Check out the rest of the collection at Singer 22.

Mr Lim Does It Again

Every piece. To die. This is why we are in a serious relationship, Philip and I. He could almost get me to skip summer for this collection. Almost.

Splurge vs Save

Copyright infringement or coincidence?

SAVE. J Simpson Adreana Sandal, $88.95

Twelfth St by Cynthia Vincent Luella Wedge, $405

I don't own that many 'expensive' shoes....I am still working on adding some designers to the roster, but I have this weird stigma attached to cheaper shoes. It is probably so mental, but isn't cost directly proportional to comfort? You tell me!
