So at my house, we have this tradition of inviting a ton of people over, printing out a stack of ballots and having a big ol' party to celebrate the most exciting awards show of the year: The Oscars. We've been doing this since I was a teenager, and this year was no exception. My sister even surprised us by flying in for the weekend so she could attend. Needless to say, it's a big deal in my house.
Overall, I was pleased with the list of winners! I thought (for the most part) the right people won - and everything was very well deserved. Did you have any thoughts?
Usually, I would do a best dressed list with all of my favorites of the night - but this year, however, there was only ONE person on my list: Lupita Nyong'o in Prada.
Seriously, her dress SLAYED and, in my opinion, no one else's even came comes in comparison...
See what I mean? ::
It was a total Cinderella moment and the fact that she walked home with the ultimate accessory (an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years a Slave) made the whole experience that much more special.
Congrats to her and to all the other winners!
And in the words of my sister, only 364 days till the Oscars!
It hasn't rained this much in Southern California in I don't know how long, and clearly I'm in denial (or just completely unaware of how to handle myself in wet weather) cause this is what I wore to dinner last night in Santa Monica - sans umbrella. Luckily, there was only one major downpour and we were able to seek shelter underneath the overhang of our favorite restaurant (The Misfit - for those of you in the LA area...)
In other news, American Apparel makes the perfect high-rise denim.
And here's a shopping tip - buy exclusively at the outlet (if you can) - cause I snagged an additional 15% off of these bad boys with a AAA discount. Full Price, whaaaaaaa?
We FINALLY made it over to the Diane Von Furstenburg exhibit over at LACMA. Appropriately titled "Journey of a Dress" - the exhibit expertly celebrates the 40th anniversary of the famous wrap dress, complete with HUNDREDS examples of this iconic look.
My mom, family friend and I ventured over there on Friday after work and it was well worth the trek. Even better, admission into the exhibit is FREE - so if you're in the area and are as obsessed with fashion as I am, this is definitely a must see...
My FAVORITE part of the exhibit were the walls and floors. As you can tell from these photos, the entire room was covered in different prints made famous from several of her dresses. I loved loved loved the hot pink animal print wall!
And of course, no trip to LACMA is complete without a stop at the famous Urban Lights display (even if it did start raining as soon as we got to them...):
Have any of you seen the exhibit yet? What were your thoughts?
I've had this flannel for months and this is the first time I've worn it. Now I'm kicking myself cause it's pretty much perfect and I can't believe all the Kurt Cobain inspired outfits I've been missing out on.
