Pink Ladies

Here we have Lea Michele in Elie Saab and Leslie Mann in Honor. I love both but I really LOVE the Honor dress and I especially love it on Leslie Mann.

Awards Season Is Upon Us

Here are my favorite gowns/dresses from the People's Choice and Critic's Choice Awards.

Emmy Rossum in a Carolina Herrera starry night gown

Julianne Hough in a Tony Ward couture starry night gown (sensing a theme?)

And Katy Perry in Valentino. People thought it was matronly, but honestly this is probably what I would have opted for. It is WINTER for heaven's sake! Just because it is LA doesn't mean the rules of Winter fashion do not apply.

Thinking of Missoni

As the search continues for Vittorio Missoni the missing CEO of Missoni and eldest son of founder Ottavio, I thought I'd post some images of Anjelica Huston modeling some Missoni in the 70s. The search for Missoni's plane continues off the coast of Venezuela where it went missing 4 days ago.

Bendel's Bow Studs

For a more traditional earring, here are some studs from Henri Bendel. They are cute, classy and cheaper than Tiffany! Bendel's actually has a lot of cute affordable earrings, I highly recommend taking a look at their website


I always thought that I hated Dolce & Gabbana, but it turns out that I was thinking of the "D&G" brand/stores and not their actual runway fashion. So gorgeous and amazing and their accessories are out of control. I feel like I don't need to say anything about these earrings because they are obviously covetable. Pasta earrings...come on. Baroque styles/themes/prints are really doing it for me these days. Trust that I will be posting more of D&G's runway collection for SS2013 soon after my earring rant ends. I also LOVE their ads lately too. They are all sort of running on a theme of family gatherings or generational gatherings? Wedding? Funeral? Who knows, but they are beautiful and make me ache for Italy, a place that I have never been.

One Year Off

...well, not off off, but off blog. I wasn't that inspired to write anything and sadly I was inspired recently by earrings, and THAT is what I want to talk about. I got my ears pierced when I was 3 or 4 (apparently because I wanted to? so says my mom)(I stand by the fact that as the parent she could have said no...she doesn't listen to me now as a 30 something, I can't imagine that 3 year old me was that convincing).  My holes closed up since I think that glasses and earrings look strange in collaboration. I got contacts and then was interested in earrings again...Anyway, last summer I was staying at my parent's house watching a marathon of keeping up with the Kardashians when I found a piercing earring, so I jammed that in my closed ear hole and now I have 2 functioning ear holes. So it has been a new obsession to find beautiful eccentric fancy earrings - here are my top picks!

Oldies(ish) but goodies: Prada Devil earrings from 2011

From Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2012 Collection: I just searched "racist earrings" - but I like them.

Tired now, more earrings later.
