The Oscars 2011.

My Top 5 Red Carpet Looks.

Michelle Williams in Chanel Couture.

Mila Kunis in Elie Saab Haute Couture.

 Scarlett Johansson in Dolce & Gabbana.

Cate Blanchett in Givency Couture.

Amy Adams in L'Wren Scott.

I always looove watching The Oscars Live from the red carpet on E prior to the actual award show just to see all of the lovely ladies and their beautiful dresses. I often think about how I would style the dress differently with hair/make up/jewelry and I don't hold back voicing my opinion to my husband who kindly accompanies me :o) These ladies were my absolute favorites from last night on the red carpet. Ha, anyone who knows my style could totally see why I fell in love which each of these dresses. I adore lace, sparkles, draping, anything ballerina-esque and rich colors along with pretty pastels.

Hi friends! Happy Sunday :o) This outfit was actually worn today and I just arrived home from a "Peter Rabbit" inspired baby was quite delightful. We celebrated sweet Melissa's little miracle, baby Lowen! This morning I seriously woke up and decided I was going to wear happened just like that..and it usually does, haha! This is one of my favorite skirts that I bought at Wet Seal on a spontaneous shopping spree with my friend Jenny. I had a moment where I realized I just couldn't leave the store without it!* I love that it is lace, floral print, ruffles and purple..all at the same time<3 My sister also brought me a little goody bag of hand me downs last night and that's where I found these pretty plum tights. I love mixing different shades of the same color, but I paired the different purples with a simple black so there wasn't soo much going on. What do you think?*

Beloved and Borrowed.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Borrowed from my sister<3
Tights: Wal-Mart
Boots: Macy's (Madden Girl)

Hello beautiful lace dress!!..kinda Alice in Wonderland..kinda medieval meets Betsey Johnson<3 Ok, many xoxoxox's to my sister for letting me take this delightful dress home with me from my last visit with her. Honestly, I was quite skeptical about the length on me at first, BUT this dress still deserved a spot on my blog and I love it nonetheless. I feel like if it were any shorter, this lovely dress would look a little more costume(ish). I decided to rock the black tights and my new boots..once again! The dress is a deep aqua blue color with a dark navy lace overlay...and yes, I paired the navy with black :o) It adds an edge to it..that I like* I also highlighted my lips with a dark purple lipstick (MAC, Cyber). A look is not complete without lipstick<3<3

She inspires me.

Oh Sunny Days.

Outfit Details:

Dress: American Eagle
Tights: Wal-Mart
Socks: Kyle ;o)
Boots: Macy's (Madden Girl)..Love.

I cannot quite wait for Spring, Summer and this sunshiny goodness all the time!! This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous and the warm weather was such a beautiful breath of fresh air for me and my slightly vampire-ish skin!
Fact: I love dresses. It's true..and floral print, so what's better than a floral print dress??? I am a huge fan of the color black as well and I love to mix this dark bold color with the basic navy and occasional brown. I don't follow the rule: never mix black and brown or black and navy. I say.. "screw the rule!!", wear what you want ;o) Oh my my my..these Madden boots make me giddy! Ha, I really can't control the excitement when I put them on* My sister and I found them on sale at Macy's in Nashville and after careful observation of the warm feelings that took over when we placed the boots on our feet (kinda like Cinderella and her sparkly glass slipper..oh yeah!), we decided it would be very unfortunate if we passed up such a delightful and very well made boot<3 End of story..we are so so pleased with our purchase! I did not get a very good picture of my bracelet, but I want to describe it because this piece of jewelry is truly one of my favorites! I found it at Pangea in Hillsboro Village. It is a dark brown leather band with dull gold studs all around it..I wear it with just about everything and it gives a little edgy feel to anything I pair it with :o) score!

Vintage Valentine.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Beethoven - Love Letters of Great Men

July 6, in the morning

My angel, my all, my very self - Only a few words today and at that with pencil (with yours) - Not till tomorrow will my lodgings be definitely determined upon - what a useless waste of time - Why this deep sorrow when necessity speaks - can our love endure except through sacrifices, through not demanding everything from one another; can you change the fact that you are not wholly mine, I not wholly thine - Oh God, look out into the beauties of nature and comfort your heart with that which must be - Love demands everything and that very justly - thus it is to me with you, and to your with me. But you forget so easily that I must live for me and for you; if we were wholly united you would feel the pain of it as little as I - My journey was a fearful one; I did not reach here until 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Lacking horses the post-coach chose another route, but what an awful one; at the stage before the last I was warned not to travel at night; I was made fearful of a forest, but that only made me the more eager - and I was wrong. The coach must needs break down on the wretched road, a bottomless mud road. Without such postilions as I had with me I should have remained stuck in the road. Esterhazy, traveling the usual road here, had the same fate with eight horses that I had with four - Yet I got some pleasure out of it, as I always do when I successfully overcome difficulties - Now a quick change to things internal from things external. We shall surely see each other soon; moreover, today I cannot share with you the thoughts I have had during these last few days touching my own life - If our hearts were always close together, I would have none of these. My heart is full of so many things to say to you - ah - there are moments when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all - Cheer up - remain my true, my only treasure, my all as I am yours. The gods must send us the rest, what for us must and shall be -

Your faithful LUDWIG.

Beethoven - Love Letters of Great Men

Good morning, on July 7

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us - I can live only wholly with you or not at all - Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits - Yes, unhappily it must be so - You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never - Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves. And yet my life in V is now a wretched life - Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men - At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection? My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once - Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together - Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours

These letters were found in Beethoven's desk after he died. They were not addressed to anybody, so it is impossible to know who he was writing to. Historians feel they were written to a married woman who he loved dearly, and who was leaving the city at the time of these letters.

This is the letter Mr. Big quotes at the wedding with Carrie in Sex and the City. <3

Emma Watson-Delightful.

Teen Vogue-Emma Watson August 2009

On her personal style: “It’s kind of my lucky brand [Chanel], a fail-safe. I live, really, in jeans from Topshop, blazers from Ralph Lauren or Reiss, and ballet flats. It’s very hard to describe your own style and I’m young, so I’m still experimenting. But I think it’s quite British and very much about individuality. There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are.”-Emma Watson:Teen Vogue

I Love her quote: "There's nothing interesting about looking perfect-you lose the point. You want what you're wearing to say something about you, about who you are."

I came across her photo shoot above in Teen Vogue awhile back and fell in love with all of the beautiful bold colors, floral prints and ruffles. I also love how feminine everything is! I think Emma Watson is such a beautiful and lovely girl.

Marie Claire 2010

Omigosh. Another photo shoot that I am obsessed with!! I love everything about this spread in Marie Claire! Her newly cropped hair, the lovely pastels, sweet floral appliques and wow..those divine studded heels ;o)
I have been fascinated with the pixie haircut for over a year now, but just can't bring myself to chop off all of my hair! Although, I truly know that if/when I did decide to to get a sweet little pixie cut..I would loove it! Decisions, decisions. She makes me want to take a pair of scissors to my hair right now!

I Dance To The Beat Of My Own Drum.

Look One.

Outfit Details:

Shirt: Liv
Dress: Liv, Urban Outfitters
Tights: Wal-Mart
Socks: Urban Outfitters<3
Boots: Rack Room

 This is another outfit that basically belongs to my bestie, Liv. I borrowed the dress and long sleeve shirt from her closet and created a look that I loved! I also featured this grey shirt on my blog awhile back with high waisted blue shorts and a floral scarf. Ha..we are like Mutt and Jeff, so any dress I borrow from her looks completely different on me--a lot shorter* I love the pockets in the front of the dress and the material is so light weight! I thrive off of creating different looks and mixing colors and patterns. With this outfit, I put together colors that made me feel especially girly and I matched my magenta Urban Outfitter socks with my magenta MAC lipstick (Up The Amp) is such a lovely color and my favorite! ;o) it's a win win situation.

Look Two.

I have seriously not worn a blue jean jacket since I was in highschool, which was almost 5 years ago! But, another visit to my mumzy's house turned in to me leaving with one of her precious hand me downs..this blue jean jacket. I was determined to style this jacket in a fun and playful way! I personally adore this look. I decided to mix bold colors and two different patterns :o) I mean, it's only natural for me! You like??

Shirt: Thrifted-Kyle's ;o)
Tights: Wal-Mart
Boots: Rugged Wearhouse
Belt: Thrifted
Gold Cuff: Hand me down

Hi loves!!! Sorry for the delay in posts, we had a little problem with our computer and did not have signal for a few days. This is a simple outfit as you can see, but I love it!! Girls, I encourage you to rummage through your man's closet and see what you can find ;o) I turned my husband's thrifted button up into a short dress..then paired it with some colorful tights and vintage inspired boots!! I decided to belt it so the shirt was more fitting. I think the finish look came together quite well* I have also found a few more pieces of clothing in his closet that I can't wait to play around with and create different looks!
 Oh, and I am a huge lover of make up and actually really enjoy painting my face. Lipsticks are my very fave!! I usually like to keep my make up simple and wear a bold my lips steal the spotlight! With this look, I chose a bright red that adds a lovely pop of color<3<3
