Honorable Mention

Red Carpet All Stars!

The Awards season ended with the Oscars on Sunday and we are sad to see the red carpet fashion thrills come to an end. However, now we have all their inspiring and luxury style to inspire us for our own events for the upcoming spring and summer! Here is a list of our favorites from the top film awards shows!

Jennifer Lawrence has been working the red carpet like a pro this year! Her looks here from the Oscars, SAG Awards and Golden Globes were standouts each evening – even with tripping on her dress at the Oscars and having a slight malfunction at the SAG Awards!

Jessica Chastain has shown off her pale complexion by going for daring colors and sophisticated sheath and mermaid silhouettes for elevated and timeless chic!

Anne Hathaway is always a red carpet favorite, she is daring in fashion and quick with a smile, although she sometimes has a miss – this year was full of HITS! She can rock anthing from mermaid to sheath to an illusion tulle over-skirt!

Jennifer Lopez is a bodacious bombshell if there ever was one! She known for taking risks with her red carpet fashion, but we LOVE her courage to flaunt the amazing curves she has!

Kerry Washington is so dazzlingly beautiful that it is impossible to think she could wear anything wrong – but her red carpet couture is just as stunning as her beauty! She isn’t afraid of bedazzled pieces which give such glamour to any ensemble!

Honorable Mentions from the Oscars: There were many other stars that caught our eye with their drop-dead numbers – here are our favorite honorable mentions! Octavia Spencer blew our minds in this Tadashi Shoji creation proving that any shape can look AMAZING! Amy Adams arrived in Oscar de la Renta with a train to make any woman sick with envy. Charlize Theron kept things simple in Dior and Sally Fields(always lovely) wowed in last year’s Valentino with no shame about that at all!

Which red carpet stood out to you the most? Which celebrity has the best style?



Overly Complex Electronics

I recently came across an article that gadgets have become more and more complex, that they AREN’T making our lives any easier.  I never thought about it that way, but realized it to be true.  I asked among my friends and surprisingly, they’ve come up with a bunch of modern electronics  that were a lot simpler to use back then:
