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”!!
We’re having some springtime temperatures here in Los Angeles – I was in Malibu yesterday celebrating a friend’s birthday wearing flip flops and a dress! I know there’s still a Polar Vortex going on in other parts of the world, so to help channel some warm temperatures, this piece from Hannah in the Phillippines is getting some love. It’s exactly what I want to wear next time I’m in the sun!
I got the dress for free from the school where I work. (PS, I’m from the Philippines! Hi everyone!!!). They gave each of us a bag with several pieces of clothes inside. My students chose the dress for me because they know that I love dresses and think it will look great on me.
When I tried it on, I didn’t like the fit especially in the shoulders, the thick neckline, the shirred part in the middle of the dress, and the length. I loved the pattern of the fabric though, so I held onto it and decided to recreate it.
How will Hannah tweak this piece?
