Red Carpet Round Up

I am so in love with award season fashion right now! Checking out the gowns from the SAG awards last night it is almost impossible to pick a favourite... There was lots of bright colour and sexy body hugging gowns with thigh high slits along with romantic flowing dresses... We also saw lots of black ribbon belts and waist cinching details and beautiful unfussy hair and clean makeup... I can't wait to see what the Oscars will bring!

Bohemian Babe

I love how Nicole Richie can transition from bohemian babe to pin curl princess with a simple hairstyle... What do you think... does Nicole easily transform to this chic polished look or do you prefer her laid back beach bunny waves and simple makeup? I think she can pull off anything, but I am a devoted Nicole fan through and through! P.s. love the purple shadow in her first look!

Bundled Up Beauties

It has been so cold lately that my outfits are constantly hidden under my coat, hat, mitts, gloves and scarf... although I do have a huge collection of coats, hats, mitts and scarves (it's ridiculous!) So I thought I would post some of my favourite celebrity cozy chic looks that they have been sporting around town this winter, I am often inspired by these pics to try a different winter accessory combo or to pull out the military coat I bought last winter like Liv's here and pair it with my Hunter boots (I love her green ones!) Cameron's belted camel coat is so sophisticated and a totally timeless look and Reese is simply adorable and so cool.... What is your winter style, peacoat or parka? Uggs or riding boots? I admit I love (and have) it all!!

Wide With Style

Ok I am totally loving the wide leg pants and jeans that I've been seeing!! I have a few pairs that I haven't worn since my mild addiction to skinny jeans in the last few years, but I think it's time to break them out of hiding... This is such a great look and can be worn on any body type, may I suggest though for us petite (short) ladies that you wear them a little longer and always with a heel or wedge... This look can make already short legs look even shorter so try on a few pairs to find your perfect length and width, try a simple black or dark indigo denim because you can easily incorporate them into your wardrobe with your existing pieces... Pair them with a basic black fitted tee for a weekend chic look or try them with a tailored white shirt and chunky necklace for work... The Gap and Old Navy have denim and basic black wide leg pants right now for between $25-$65, they are totally affordable and a must have!! Would you wear this trend?

Feeling Blue

So I was checking out the F21 website today and I came across these gorgeous blue suede pumps... How adorable would these look with your LBD or a great pair of skinny jeans!! And they would transition so easily from winter to spring, so really they would be a total investment... I need to have these shoes and the best news of all is they are only $24.90... I wonder if they come in red too!!

Golden Goddesses

Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? I love award season, the fashion is amazing!! I had to post some of my favourite looks from last night, there was a ton of bold colour, super sexy black dresses and stunning metallics... The makeup flawless with lots of strong lip colour and the hair was totally polished, shiny and sophisticated... I am feeling so inspired, I can't wait for The Oscars!!!!

Orange You Happy To Try A New Lip Colour!

Spring is just around the corner (or at least that's what I am telling myself) and along with a new season comes new makeup and fashion trends to look forward to! A huge trend seen here on the Marc By Marc Jacobs runway for Spring 2011 was a nude eye, a punchy cheek and bright bold orange lips! I totally love this look, it is fun and fresh and totally wearable... It will be a big shift from the deep matte red lip that we have all been sporting this winter, I love that look too but I am always up for trying something new! Play around with fun corals and shades of orange to find your best hue, and remember this doesn't have to be harsh... If you are a little afraid to try it experiment first with a gloss, try Nars Sweet Dreams available at Sephora for $24 this is a universally flattering shade and totally on trend!!

Darker Do

I am loving Lauren Conrad's darker hue, she looks amazing with this warm caramel colour for winter... Although Lauren is a true California girl and looks beautiful as a blonde this is a great colour for her too! Lauren's hair is always perfectly polished whether she wears it shiny and straight or in tousled waves, she is the epitome of young and chic!

Bootie-Ful Girl

I am such a fan of Rachel Bilson's laid back street style, she always looks effortlessly cool and chic... Her Coach wedge booties are totally adorable and she makes them work with each outfit she is sporting here... I found a similar pair on the Aldo website for $60 and I think I just may have to have them! The only issue is whether to go for the cognac colour similar to Rachel's or do I go for the always stylish black... What do you think, should get both colours??

Tie Time

What do you think of the menswear trend? Would you wear it? I am on the fence, I think it looks cute on some gals when it's styled properly with some pretty feminine pieces in the mix... I love how all these ladies look with their sleek suits and skinny ties but I'm not sure that I could pull this off... This look channels a modern day Annie Hall and must be worn with lots of attitude!!

Hunter Love

I am so excited to wear my new Hunter boots, they were a Christmas gift from my hubby and I absolutely adore them ( I think I have made my love of boots pretty obvious!!)... I just ordered two pairs of Hunter socks in cream and black to wear with them because I find it is a little chilly to walk the dog in them with the cold temperatures we are enduring lately... But trust me I will be wearing them for fashion just as much as for function!! I am kind of loving the dark red or olive green Hunter boots as well, but I'm not sure that I need 2 pairs... Although that has never stopped me before! Do you like Hunter boots?
