Wearing the Pants
When it comes to dressing up, I have always been more of a dress person. But in the last year I have found myself increasingly drawn to pants, pants, and more pants. My closet, which once boasted perhaps three pairs of “fancier” trousers, is now overflowing with pants in a rainbow of colors, and I without question reach for them more often than not.
It’s not that I’m not longer fond of dresses — I love those feminine frocks, you know? — but there’s something rather powerful and dare I say, sexy, about a woman in pants and heels.
Now, I have yet to ask any men about their thoughts on the power and sexiness of women in pants over dresses; but it’s not about them, is it? If you feel good in what you’re wearing then eff the rest! Am I right!?
A Touch of Pink
When it comes to hair I’m about as boring as it gets. Aside from my daily routine of shampoo, conditioner, and a touch of Moroccan Oil, my hair never changes. I don’t do up dos, I look weird with it straightened, and my arm gets tired after about five minutes with a curling iron. So basically I’ve had the same jellyfish tendrils for ten years, give or take a few inches/bangs, but I’m always looking for easy ways to change it up…just a bit.
I’ve grown curiouser and curiouser about this whole My Little Pony color streak trend. I’d never do anything permanent, but a temporary dip into the pink color pool could be fun for a day or two. Don’t you think? A friend of mine recently tested out Kevin Murphy’s Color Bug and said it rinsed out no problem (after about two washes). January Jones debuted a few subtle but sweet streaks of baby pink a few months ago and Oscar de la Renta sent neon streaked hair down his Resort 2012 runway. If Oscar approves you know it’s something worth testing.
So what do you think? Should I give the ol’ pink streak trend a try? Tell me before I dip my whole head in a pot of kool aid.
SAG Awards 2010
I know I’m a bit behind on this, but I just have to post my favorite looks from the SAG Awards. I was THOROUGHLY impressed with the red carpet, it was a major step up from the Golden Globes. Tons of looks that came straight from the runway.
Golden Globes 2010
As a whole, I was not very impressed with the dress choices of this years Golden Globes. That being said, there were a few that stood out to me as favorites.
However, before I reveal my faves, can we just take a second to note that THE HANGOVER won a Golden Globe!!? And that AVATAR beat THE HURTLOCKER!? I’m seriously shocked and embarrassed by the people who voted for those films to win best picture.
Enough bitching…here are my favorite dresses.
