My Top 5 Looks from the Grammy Awards …

I know I’m a day late, but late or not, I just cant resist sharing with you my top 5 looks from the Grammy’s Sunday night. I absolutely love red carpet events. While there were so many great choices, I have decided to narrow down my favorites to a top 5 this year. Whether they made my top 5 or not, I would love to hear whose red carpet look you loved most.

#5. Beyonce skipped the gown this year and went with an Osman Jumpsuit instead. I love this choice for the red carpet. She looks fantastic!

#4. Karlie Kloss in Michael Kors – I love this dress, love the color, and I absolutely adore anything and everything Michael Kors.

#3. Natasha Bedingfield looked stunning in this cutout dress, and I am so in love with this color. She is wearing an EMERSON by Jackie Fraser-Swan gown from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

#2. Taylor Swift looked like a total angel in her J. Mendel crème silk chiffon pleated gown. She has been at the top of my lists for all the awards shows this year.

#1. Rhianna – Confession alert, I am not a huge fan of Rhianna, but this dress may have completely changed my mind. This dress was hands down my favorite fashion moment of the whole night. The gorgeous singer stunned in a custom Azzedine Alaïa gown featuring sexy sheer panels of chiffon. TDF!

So what do you think of my top 5 – Who were your favorites?

My Winter Essentials …

Now that it is officially FREEZING, I think it’s a good time to introduce to you all … My current WINTER ESSENTIALS. I live in California, so my essentials may be a little different than lets say someone in Utah or New York – but nonetheless, even if its sunny outside, it’s cold and us California girls still have special needs. So lets gets started.

1. Beanie’s – I’m a new found lover of Beanie hats. I used to think that they made me look boyish (because I had short hair) but now, long hair or not, I absolutely love this look. I like to rock them with curls – so cute and so warm!

2. Boot Socks – I absolutely love this look. Accessories for accessories … does it get any better than this? As a California girl, flip flops may be my first shoe choice, but in the winter, boots are a total necessity. Stay warm all winter long with these adorable socks.

3. Chapstick – No winter essential list is complete without some kind of Chapstick. You can wear the most gorgeous clothes, by the most famous designers, but if your dry chapped lips steal the attention, what’s the point?

4. Coat – I love coats! Oh wait – thats an understatement …. I LOVE LOVE LOVE COATS! They are so simple and still so chic. Within seconds they can transform any look into the perfect Winter ensemble. How fabulous does Julianne Hough look in this winter white coat below?

4. Leggings – Want to know the best way to re-wear your fall clothing this Winter? Leggings. Not only do they look fabulous, but they are warm too. Pair them with a sweater dress for an ultra chic look in seconds.

5. Pop of Color – Winter wardrobes tend to consist of drab colors. Break out of your winter blues (or in my case blacks & grays) and add a pop of color. I love these colored jeans!

6. Scarves – I said it before, and I’ll say it again – Scarves are an absolute must. Like many of my choices on this list, they are warm and super fashionable. In the Fall, I use my scarves as an accessory, but in the Winter I use them to stay warm. Want the warmest scarf out there? I highly recommend a fur one like this one.

7. Starbucks – Ok I know this isn’t exactly a fashion accessory, but it is a Winter Essential, and I think it compliments our winter wardrobes quite nicely … Don’t you?

How to: Reuse your New Years Eve Dress

So you bought a new dress for a NYE party, and now its just hanging in your closet right? Well pull it back out and make the most of your money! With just a few simple pieces you can reuse your Holiday dresses and incorporate them into your daily wardrobe. I don’t know about you, but I love transitional pieces, and I absolutely love finding new ways to wear old clothing. The pullover sweater not only takes the chill away, but it also adds a nice textural contrast too. So what do you think – Will you be reusing your Holiday dresses?

New Years Resolutions …

I have to admit that I am a little sad to see 2012 leave us so suddenly. This past year really was so good to me. I started my blog, got a new car, became vegetarian, got engaged,  hell … I even survived the end of the world! It really was one of the best years of my life, but 2013 will be too! After all, I am getting married to the love of my life right? Check out my 13 Resolutions of 2013 below, and don’t forget to let me know some of yours too. Happy New Years Everyone!

ne

  • 1. Plan my perfect wedding – and get started now!
  • 2. Lose weight for my big day. Eat healthy, stop drinking regular soda, and spend more time in the gym.
  • 3. Grow my blog. Get more views, comments, and make more connections.
  • 4. Read more books.
  • 5. Eat more dinners at home. Dining out is so delicious, but staying in is healthier and cheaper.
  • 6. Learn to sew. I can’t be an inspiring designer if I don’t know how to sew right?
  • 7. Keep the house clean & stay organized.
  • 8. Purchase a home.
  • 9. Learn to paint my own nails. I can change them whenever I want, and its way cheaper than going to the nail salon.
  • 10. Try to keep Sundays free of work. Six days at work is enough right? I need my family time and a day of sleeping in.
  • 11. To kiss messy buns goodbye. They might be cute for the gym and the swimming pool, but this messy look will no longer be acceptable on a every day basis.
  • 12. To go to Hawaii. O wait this is already happening – but we do need to book our flights.
  • 13. To see the bright side of things. Everything happens for a reason right?
