So I walked out of there with a Gap dress from last season and a practically brand new Banana Republic blazer all for $30. The dress looked a little wrinkled at first, but after a wash and a little attention from my steamer it looked brand new. The blazer is a much needed addition to my wardrobe. I was lacking in the neutral jacket department and this one fits like a glove. Link up in the comments with your consignment shop finds.

Anyways, as much as I love watching the red carpet, the after parties are really what I am after. I would love to be a fly on the wall for this conversation between Glenn Close and Michelle Williams.
Sofia Coppola and Tom Ford at Vanity Fair party.
Olivia Wilde walks into the Vanity Fair party.
And just for good measure, these were my favorite dresses of the night. I absolutely love the exaggerated bow on Emma Stone's dress; the rosette shaped gathering on Stacy Keibler's Marchesa gown; and the dramatic draping of Angelina Jolie's Atelier Versace dress.

The Artist is about silent movie star, George Valentin, who starts to loose his relevancy in a new era of talking pictures. Peppy Miller was the perfect character to embody for this post because she is the fan who turns into a star. As a fan imitating a star, this choice couldn't feel more appropriate. The setting is 1920s Hollywood. The dresses have low waist lines and are still rather modest in shape and hemlines. The hair is short and curly. I wore this longer layered blouse to imitate the longer waistlines and loose-fit dresses. I decided to go with a faux-bob by twisting my ponytail and tucking and pinning it under in the back.

The Academy Awards will be returning to the Hollywood Kodak Theater for its 84th year. I always love watching to find out who will wear what, was the host funny, and which film will take home Best Picture. To honor the awards, I will be wearing three outfits this week inspired by Best Picture nominees. After aggregating what were determined to be the best films of the year, I was able to identify one common theme among three of them. Stay tuned to see what that is! And if you haven't already, get your butt to the movie theater!

I have seen this particular colorblock pair (red and purple) parading around blogs and clothing stores and I love it! They are great complimentary colors and make an outfit interesting. I feel like I am wearing something much more daring than just a pencil skirt and a sweater to work. Getting up and getting dressed has "literally" never been more fun. (Said like Rob Lowe in Parks and Rec.) The only problem was in the tights and footwear. Because of the nautical stripe shirt underneath, I wanted to keep the shoes a warm color. I also didn't want the color of the tights to stand out more than the outfit so I went with black. The easiest part was in the accessories. The outfit itself creates such a look that accessories are not even necessary, but because I wanted to keep things warm I went with gold.

one of these. Document the date. The flowers, the restaurant, the buildings, the street. Take one together if you can find a willing stranger. Keep photos as a Valentine's day memento to look at all year.

New Girl, starring the adorable Zooey Deschanel. She plays Jess, a happy-go-lucky, girly-girl who often ends up in awkward but charmingly funny situations with her three male roommates. The show at times can get a little too goofy, but there are plenty of laugh out loud moments to make up for it. True to Zooey Deschanel style, there is a lot of sartorial inspiration. See the striped sweater above. Adorbs! Also check out my Zooey pinterest board. This girl crush has officially gone to the next level. Let me know if you are a fan!
