Best Dressed at the Met Ball

Well, Monday night was THE night.

All you fashionistas out there know what I'm talking about...


The SUPERBOWL of fashion...more fascinating than the Oscars themselves (IMO)

The GRANDEST red carpet event in the WORLD.

I've been looking forward to it since, IDK the day after the gala last year.

Last night did not disappoint.

In no particular order, my picks for best dressed...

(tangerine was/is such a hot color)

All these ladies hit it out of the park.

It's been fun- see you next year, Met!

Fashion Friday- Scarlett in Prada

I LOVE this dress!

It is so cool looking.
I don't know if I would have paired it with red heels, but I think this whole look is so PRETTY!
I have a feeling I'm going to be coming back to this one at the end of the year as one my 2012 faves.

What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Agree to Disagree?

Another pretty look - I like mixed media dresses. Haven't seen a lot of purple lately, but it looks really good with blonde hair. (this is taylor schilling but I thought it was Diane Kruger at first. They could be sisters, no?)

Now this Kim K ensemble isn't quite noteworthy (besides the pink shoes) but look behind Kim to the right... Is that RHofA star Miss NENE? When did this happen? Are they friends now? Is Kim stooping to not just faux boyfriends/husbands, but publicity stunt friendships? Seems like Nene would get the better end of that deal. ODD!!

And this is just sad.
I actually like her new hair, but come on.
That strap is dangerously close to Tara Reid territory!

Fill In The Blank & My Face Times Three

1. Today is a great day because, being productive makes me feel good.
Must remember this when feeling overwhelmingly lazy.

2. Tomorrow I will go to the movies with my gal pal.
Emotional chick flick here we come!

3. My favorite time of day is late at night because oddly that's when I have the most energy.

4. Sometimes you just have to move on. I'm realizing that when people and/or relationships are toxic to your life it's better in the long run to cut your losses.

5. A song that I just can't get enough of lately is Goteye's "Somebody That I Used To Know." Was obsessed before SNL, but it's been playing on repeat in my head since then.

6. My favorite accessory is a crazy cool pair of shoes.

7. My favorite thing about this week was running around Wal Mart with my mom at 9:00 PM on a weeknight. The Mart is strangely relaxing when it's not crowded.

Above: Experimenting with hair pieces.

Below: Trying to get good at incorporating braids into my everyday hair do's.

New eyeshadow...
I love shimmer!

Have a good weekend- whatever you may be doing.

My plans include:

Friday night dinner and movie girl time

Making a much needed trip to the library. I haven't really kept up on my returns and I'm terrified of what my fines are going to be. I made a promise to myself to be better about taking things back on time- but I got a little off track.
After this haul, it's time to get tough on those due dates!!

Working half a day on Saturday.

Doing laundry.

Painting my nails.

The perfect weekend tri fecta of watching tv, surfing the net, and reading (sometimes done simultaneously)

Selling some stuff on Ebay if I'm feeling ambitious.

Sunday night tradition of dinner with the 'rents and little bro, 1-2 episodes of Downton Abbey, and watching Celebrity Apprentice.
Followed by heated discussions and debates of what was just watched.
By Monday no one's speaking to each other.
I kid, I kid... it gets intense, but not THAT intense...
Not YET anyway.

See you next week!

Fashion Friday- April looks so far

We're only halfway through April, but already these celebs are catching my eye...

Seriously- this is NOT FAIR. Beyond jealous.
Love this girly and flirty little number.
Simple LBD with a neat neckline.
The little black sleeves are so cute. Love her bangs too.

Have a good weekend everyone!!
I'm planning on doing some good old fashioned spring cleaning, HULU watching, and making a trip to the library.

If I get half of the things on my to do list done, I'll be good!
Hopefully I can be super productive.

P.S. I had a dream about Flight of the Conchords last night.
It's totally staying with me too...
Get out of my head Brett and Jemaine!! :-)

Fill In The Blank & A Few Little Things...

1. Today is a good day because the weekend is almost here!

2. The best thing I did all week was go through my dressers and get rid of stuff.

3. The current weather is slushy and it makes me feel like a block of ice .

4. The best thing about spring is the pretty colors!

5. A fashion trend that I'm dying to try out for spring is neon, color blocking, skinny colored denim.

6. A person who made me smile this week was my nephew. He is so stinking cute! Watching him eat a cookie with chocolate all over his face was pretty entertaining.

How can you see this and not smile?

7. The most delicious thing I ate all week was my mom made chili and cornbread. That was delish for a rainy and cold day. I also had a slice of lemon sour cream pie from the local bakery and it was awesome.

Did I mention I have a thing for owls?
(Dark green nails with purple glitter accents.)

And cupcakes.
It's a problem.
Icing is my weakness.

Quick OOTD

I LOVE this scarf I got from Target.

It's super cheap, really light weight, has one of my favorite things on it (MORE STARS!!!),

and feels good on your neck.

Can't go wrong at the Tar-Jay.

And my red pants are back!... see the last time I wore them here.
