83rd Annual Academy Awards

Happy Monday! Are you currently not wanting to get out of bed or at work wishing you were sleeping? If so, I know that you stayed up last night to watch the 83rd Annual Academy Awards show! I very much enjoyed it, and LOVED Anne Hathaway and James Franco as co-hosts!

It particularly made me smile when Natalie Portman won Best Actress for playing Nina in
Black Swan.  I adore Natalie and that movie was amazing! She very much deserved it.

On to the fashion! Of course it's the night where the best fashion comes out to play! I have the photos for you all to see :) My personal favorites were Mila Kunis, Hilary Swank, and Natalie Portman!


Blizzard

Hello my darlings!

I hope some of you are having some nice, warm weather...where I am writing we are expecting a blizzard this evening! It ruined my plans...darn Mother Nature!

I hope all of you are getting ready for the spring fashion that is just around the corner!! I cannot WAIT to wear maxi dresses and floral dresses! Eeeek, so exciting! Everyone should run out to H&M this weekend sometime and check out their maxi dresses! They are so nice...I bought a blue flowered maxi dress for 19.95!!! I was so happy when I saw it & at first thought they did not have my size...until we found a maniquin to undress! Ahh success :) I cannot wait til the weather is nice so I can wear it!


This is my new dress :)!! I hope you guys like it as much as I do! It looks so beautiful on...

Paper Crown - Lauren Conrad

MTV star Lauren Conrad’s (who almost had a new reality show...)has a contemporary line, Paper Crown coming out in Fall 2011! The "new show" that Lauren almost had on MTV was to follow the making of Paper Crown. I don't know about you guys, but I would have totally watched that show!
The collection is sweet, just like Lauren :). It reminds me of Elizabeth and James (no surprise there! I love the O twins ) only for younger fashionistas. Paper Crown features on-trend basics like leather shorts, silk blouses, slouchy blazers, tight cocktail dresses, maxi dresses and short, flouncy, belted dresses...

I have put some photos below for you all to see :) I can't wait to buy some of these clothes!!! Let me know your thoughts :)

Thanks for reading, commenting & following!

Much love,

The Row's shoe collaboration with Toms Shoes: Fall 2011

I don't know about you guys, but on my wishlist is SOMETHING from The Row. The label designed by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen!

Of course just a little bit out of the average womans price range, 250.00 for a teeshirt...

However! Now we can all own something of The Row! Mary Kate and Ashley are teaming up with Tom's Shoes on a Fall 2011 collection with the shoes starting at 98$ and coming out in plaid, herringbone, and cashmere!

Yippee! I cannot wait :)

Better start saving now ladies! This is one collaboration you will not want to miss out on :)

Check out Toms Shoes!! Which is a charitable footwear company, you buy a pair and they send a pair to a child in need.

Much love,
