Fashion Friday: How I’d Dress the Stars for the Oscars.

I always like to review red carpet styles after major awards shows, but this year I wanted to challenge myself and play stylist to the stars for the upcoming Academy Awards! This was really hard, but really fun.  I tried to mostly select looks from the Pre-Fall 2015 runways on Style.com, but there are some looks from Spring Couture 2015 and Spring Ready-to-Wear 2015 too.  Let me know what you think!

Reese Witherspoon in Elie Saab.  I love this grey gown with it’s deep V, cap sleeves and feathery skirt.  I think she could totally rock this.

Fashion Friday: Spring’s Hot Sandal

I know it’s still really cold and miserable in a lot of the country, but let’s be positive and look forward to spring (and for those of you who live in warms spots- lucky you!) So I’m noticing that for spring/ summer the biggest trend in footwear is going to be jeweled flat leather sandals- big, no apologies bling applied to casual, laid back styles!  I’m all over this look- I love how a blingy shoe when paired with a casual outfit just makes me feel hipper. Here is a roundup of the best ones I’ve found- from Sam Edelman to Marni! Click on the hotspots for links or the numbers below!

Fashion Friday: What to Wear on the Plane

Having JUST returned from our amazing vacation last night, I thought I’d take the suggestion of an Instagram follower and share what I like to wear on the plane when traveling to and from warm to cold weather.  I never travel in sweats or workout clothes because I really do like feeling put together and alert when I travel (unless on an overnight flight, then bring on the leggings and big comfy sweaters!)  Getting properly dressed just makes you feel better! A close variation on this outfit got me from Boston to Jamaica and back without being absolutely freezing or sweaty as hell on either end or in the middle!

Golden Globes Best and Worst

So, I’m in paradise…without a tv.  So I was not able to watch the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean I can’t review the fashion! :) A little best and worst dressed (and a lot in between) to kick off your morning:

For the first time in forever, I don’t think I was bowled over with a clear “best dressed” favorite! There were a bunch I “liked”, but nothing that totally rocked my world. Sienna Miller looks fabulous and unique- especially love the hair and makeup. And Naomi Watts looked amazing in this canary sheath with snake necklace. Although I feel like perhaps I’ve seen a version of this on her before? Hey if it works, don’t mess with it…

Fashion Friday: Packing for Jamaica!

My little vacation to Round Hill in Jamaica could not be coming at a better time seeing as it’s -237 degrees in Boston right now! Even though I’m as a pale as a ghost and not to jazzed about getting into a bikini right about now, I don’t care because JAMAICA!!!! :)
