Gorgeous Globes

January 16, 2011

This year’s Golden Globes were an absolute delight for a lover of color like myself. There were Pinks! There were Greens! Very little black, plenty of metallics, and, by George, there were even mismatched shoes lest those colors be considered the least bit dull.

I won’t pick a favorite because I honestly thought my top five were just stunning.

I didn’t pick a loser last year but this year I just have to mention Helena Bonham Carter because although I absolutely adore her, she needs a serious and swift fashion intervention. Clearly she is trying to make a fashion statement and that statement is “somebody please call the men in white suits since the fashion police won’t arrest me.”

Julianne Hough in Marchesa

Julianne Hough looked absolutely stunning in an elaborate dress by Marchesa. True, she needed no jewelry with this number, but hey, this jewelry designer is willing to give  one up for the cause of classy couture.

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Lhuillier

Next up, the ever sultry and sexy Catherine Zeta Jones in a va-va-va voom deep emerald green dress from Monique Lhuillier. Now, that’s what I call Hollywood glamour.

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive

I absolutely loved Anne Hathaway in this dress because it was just so “her” and of course that’s what it’s all about. I am sure the coppery shimmers in this creation looked absolutely stunning with her big brown eyes. As an added bonus, this dress looked even better going out of the room than it did coming in.

Megan Fox in Armani Prive

I wasn’t impressed by the gown Megan Fox wore at first until I saw some really close up shots that captured the details and very beautiful subtle color. It was simply spectacular with her coloring and figure.

Piper Perabo in Oscar de la Renta

Last but not least, Piper Perabo was positively glowing in this beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown. Her hair and makeup were especially well done.

Yes, I know you want me to show that picture of Helena Bonham Carter. But that’s why there is a Joan Rivers. For those of you who were expecting me to comment on men’s fashion… Johnny Depp, of course, is always the winner.

Who was your favorite this year?


Don’t be afraid to show your stripes

February 8, 2010

I feel good in stripes. 

Vintage bateau J Crew


Yes, I know what you’re thinking. I must have “done time” at some point in my life. Knocked somebody down during a Nordstrom semi-annual sale.  Thrown a shoe at somebody who said they loved wearing black. Gotten in a tussle with some unsuspecting chick over who is cuter, Johnny Depp or Matthew Mcconaughey. For the record, it’s Johnny. 

Pineapple Quartz Gunmetal Necklace


But, no, it’s not that. I’ve given it a great deal of thought and decided I just have my moods where I want to look like a french sailor. Whaaat? Is that so wrong? It’s a clean look, a fresh classic look. A little boatneck, a little shoulder showing. It’s basically my much nicer alternative to throwing on sweats. I’m the anti-sweat, unless I’m actually exercising. If you think that sweatpants are stylish, by the way, please take a moment and subscribe to this blog now. I will find you, and your little closet too. I think stripes are sexy. You can disagree. But you’d be wrong.

Cameron Earrings


The good news is even though they never went “out” stripes seem to be particularly “in” for spring and summer this year, so there is a tremendous amount from which to choose. It doesn’t matter that I already own ten striped shirts, I’ll still buy more. And please don’t tell me that stripes make you look fat. Just don’t wear prison stripes. Keep the stripes darker and/or thinner, like black stripes on a brown shirt. Or just let a little of the stripes peek out from under a sweater so they don’t make you look all horizontal.

As far as wearing jewelry with stripes, I think you can either keep it simple with just a necklace or earrings and light makeup, or go for more of a rocker look with tons of layered pieces and a smokey eye. Stripes are extremely versatile in this way. My full line of jewelry can be found at
