The Oscars last night were funny and somewhat poignant but WAAAAAAAY too long. We don’t need a montage of “movie heroes” when this thing is running three and a half hours long! C’mon! But there was some good fashion, and actually a real drought of bad fashion! I thought most people looked lovely! Leaves me with less snark, but I still can review, right?
Tied for best dressed has to be Cate Blanchett and Lupita N’yongo (both winners) who looked so gorgeous. Cate is just a freakin’ MOVIE STAR. Look at her! That dress is perfection are the earrings, the hair and makeup. Lupita’s “Nairobi blue” Prada gown was the very best color on the carpet and the cut was magnificent on her. I didn’t love the headband, but I didn’t hate it either.
These two killed it too- Charlize looked incredible and this dress fit beyond perfect. And Sandra picked the ideal color and silhouette for her. Loved her smokey eye too.
THESE TWO. Are you serious? Can they be any hotter? Olivia does pregnancy well, y’all. This 70′s inspired look on her was just amazing, I loved it. And his dark blue tux was the best men’s look of the night, hands down! When did Jason Sudekis become such a stone cold fox?
I thought Julia Roberts looked LUMINOUS- her hair and makeup was simply awesome and I actually loved this dress on her. I’m not crazy about the peplum, but I LOVED the neckline and lace detail! Karen O’s dress ( I had no idea who she was…) was elegant and retro and super old school Hollywood. Love.

I bought BOTH of these dresses for my trip to Arizona and I really love the bohemian feel of their scarf-inspired prints. Here’s how to pair each with simple accessories for easy packing (same jackt, clutch and earrings)- but alas, shoes will always be my packing kryptonite!!

I love finding new, fabulous sources for art- specifically modern photography that doesn’t cost 9 zillion dollars per print. Meet Uplo, the brainchild of Patrick Cline you you all remember as the co-founder of Lonny Magazine alongside Michelle Adams. An amazing photographer in his own right, Patrick created a way for both people like him AND those of us who are amateur shutterbugs to print, sell and share work easily. Some images can be printed as large as 40″ x 60″ or even on plexi- which is my current favorite way to display photography (frameless, modern and GORGEOUS). You can search away for a print for your own home or upload you shots, name your price and get commission on each sale! It’s a phenomenal source. It makes me want to start taking pictures again.
Nicole Cohen, the blogger behind Sketch 42 and a fabulous painter and photographer has a lot of work on there. I am LOVING her Lego Slim Aarons series to use in a kid’s room!!! Isn’t it genius???
I also kinda of need to have this print by her. I just love the mood. Love the flamingos. Just LOVE.
An amazing composition of brown and white horses (will I ever tire of horse photography??? Nope.)
Another cool, moody shot for a glamorous space.
Nicole Gibbons is also a design blogger and her pool series can be printed huge and would be awesome in a modern beach house!
