Fashion Picks: Oscar 2015

23 Feb

I love a good Red Carpet and to say that the Oscars host the best fashions of award season is not a loose statement. The stars bring out their best (and sometimes worst) looks to the Oscar Red Carpet. I won’t bother sharing my “worst” dressed list, because I would rather focus on what I love.

I base my fashion picks on the dress (or outfit) first and foremost, but the accessories, hair and makeup play a large role in my overall decision. If you have an incredible dress, but a bird’s nest on top of your head, literally…Iggy Azalea at the Grammys, I just can’t find a place for you on my fashion picks list.

Here are my favourites:

I also love to see what the stars change into for the after parties. The Vanity Fair Oscar After Party always gets the most buzz. The who’s-who of celebrities are always in attendance, whether or not they attended the Academy Awards.

Here were some of my favourite looks:

Fashion Picks: Grammys 2015

9 Feb

Here are my fashion picks for the Grammys 2015.

Gwen Stefani stole my heart with the look of the night.

As for Kim Kardashian-West and Rihanna, these outfits may not be my favourite, but they certainly had the world talking.

My two favourite looks from Grammy After Party Events go to Kendall and Kylie Jenner. These girls are so on trend right now.

Falling for Autumn

16 Sep

As I sit down to write this post, the air is cooler on this September evening. The days are still quite warm but the wind has a slight coolness to it. I know that summer is coming to an end because the air is changing and the night skies are falling upon us earlier, as the days go on.

Don’t get me wrong, summer is my favourite season and I love the sunshine, the heat and the greenery. However, there is something truly beautiful and cozy that I love so much about autumn. I know summer is not officially over yet but I’m getting into the spirit of autumn with all of the fall fashions in stores now and with the changing weather.

Once fall hits, I find that I’m always reaching for my phone so that I can snap pictures of the beautifully changing leaves. I love the red, orange and yellow foliage that paint a perfect picture every time I step outside of my house. There is something about the way the autumn air smells, so fresh and crisp!

Fall is upon us once Starbucks brings back their incredibly famous Pumpkin Spice Lattes! All of the warm, spicy drinks epitomize fall with every sip and the smell of the spicy drinks lure me in every time. There’s nothing like going for a walk in the autumn, dressed in full fall attire from a nice pair of boots to a cozy scarf, with a warm drink in hand! I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season and was on cloud nine, except when I realized that my Starbucks barista forgot to give me my slice of banana bread, but I digress.

Another favourite of mine is burning fall scented candles. The warmth from the candles themselves is comforting and filling my house with the fragrances of fall accompanies the beautiful scenery so nicely. It’s amazing how a candle can improve my mood and really create a relaxing ambiance.

 

What is a fall wardrobe without fabulous boots? I’m one for practicality but when it comes to shoes I often find myself not being the most practical individual. However, yesterday I invested in a pair of ankle boots that I immediately fell in love with that are equally as comfortable (for the most part) as they are trendy. Let’s be honest, many women love fall primarily because amazing we can start wearing our fabulous boots again.

 

Lastly, one of my favourite things that I look forward to every fall is the annual fair that is held in my hometown. The fair unofficially declares that fall is upon us, as it occurs annually on the weekend before Thanksgiving. There are several exhibitors with an array of displays, delicious eats , various shows and farm animals that we look forward to seeing every year. Oh, and you can’t forget about the ferris wheel!

 What are your fall favourites?
