I still have a few more Oscar Week outfit posts to run before Sunday (!!) but in the interim, here’s a giveaway that’s totally Oscar worthy!
I can’t wait to see the gorgeous gowns and jewels (highlight of the Oscars, amirite!?!?) so why not pass along a few dreamy/blingy pairs of earrings to three lucky winners!!
These fabulous and shiny pairs of earrings up for grabs that will make your lobes feel like a superstar! I live for these danglers. To enter, leave a comment below of your favorite movie or performance from the year along with which pair you’d like best. Which movie were you obsessed with?? Which performance made you cry/pee/get inspired? I loved Her - I thought it was just so original and Joaquin Phoenix actually didn’t make me feel too creeped out. (That tends to be the way I feel about him – talented actor, creepy dude!) Three winners will get announced next week – it’ll be my little version of Oscar gift bags to give to three awesomely amazing readers! Get your speeches prepared…
Oscar Week continues!! Day 3: Dallas Buyers Club.
The Matthew McConaughey/Jared Leto pairing was the best.
Jared Leto’s costumes were the best.
And let’s be honest…Jared Leto’s hair now, is the best. It’s like the perfect color and cut of my dreams. Not joking. Totally serious. I want Jordan Catalano’s hair. (MSCL reference, aka, Marisa’s high school journal played out on TV.)
OK, now I found an amazing hand embroidered robe that I was going to use to match more of his look, however when I found this piece…
It’s screamed Dallas.
The brand is called Miss Rodeo USA…
…so I just had to.
Let Oscar Week begin!!
This is one of my favorite times of the year – the Oscars are a week away (yippee for fun red carpets!!) – and I’m super close to seeing everything nominated. (Yeah, total tradition since college…friends and I all try to cram everything in so we’re fully prepared to fill out an Oscar ballot to win $$$!)
To celebrate, I’m going to craft a week’s worth of Oscar-themed outfits from some of the nominated films. A little countdown to Sunday eve’s festivities, if you will To kick off the week, we’re starting with Blue Jasmine. Cate Blanchett is SO good in this and really anything that Louis CK does, I’m 100% on board with.
I went completely literal with this one, friends!!
How ’bout this royal blue dress with INSANE shoulder pads…`
…and this lace layer up top?
There is a bit of work that needs to get done to get this “wear in public ready”!!
Today’s piece comes from the lovely Lainie! Lainie sent me two batches of pictures – one set includes the project that you’ll see below and the second set are pics of the Tassimo she won from the pre-holiday giveaway! I was thrilled to hear all about the goodies she received in the mail from the Tassimo itself and the batches of discs…
…to the hospitality station she set up in her entryway with her new machine! I want to come and hang at your house, Lainie! Your entryway looks like the cutest bed and breakfast
What a fun way to stay warm during the Pacific Northwest “Snowpocalypse 2014″ as she described it!
Now onto the project…
I wanted to thank you for helping me be brave. I had this huge plaid wrap thing that was barely more than hemmed fabric and I made a hat using a pattern in a book. It was all fine and well but really, so much fabric was not used and the original item wasn’t exactly re-invented. Why? Because I was chicken!! My mom brought this dress home that she picked up on clearance at Marshall’s and I decided to go for it.
Even though it was hideous on, I had a very hard time cutting into something that was already, you know, “something.” But I did it…
How will Lainie rework this clearance rack piece?
