Skulls and Lace

Well today is Flag Day and I didn’t even realize it until after I got this post ready…so I guess it is very fitting.

I found this shirt at Forever 21 and I love it! I love “American” things and I love skulls and I love Lynard Skynard so…there you go. Had to have it. I decided to make it a little more lady-like with these lace shorts and these amazing heels from Steve Madden. I LOVE them. I was looking for some great ankle strap heels and I’m so glad I waiting for a little while because these just came out and I almost bought all three colors that they had. I didn’t, because I’m sure I’ll find some more that I love, but you should try these!

Fashion Moment – Double Trouble in Yellow Alice & Olivia

We have a “who wore it better” fashion moment today and I can’t really decide which one I like better? I love love love the dress though! It’s a yellow sequined dress by Alice & Olivia. I think it looks fabulous on both, Chelsea Kane and Vanessa Hudgens. The only difference really is the shoes and I don’t think either pair is bad! I’m leaning towards Chelsea a tiny bit ¬†because of her coloring, but it looks so great on Vanessa’s body! What do you think?!Chelsea Kane Alice & Oliviasmall_6159f9d19720130325175721_Vanessa-Hudgens-yellow-Alice-Olivia-dress-fashion-do-fustany

J.Crew Stripes and White Shorts

So nice, I wore it twice…well I bought it twice. I’ve worn it a lot more than that already. I don’t know if you remember this post, but I was obsessed with this shirt. It went on sale, so I bought the other color because I thought it was so great. J.Crew has just been my go-to store this year. Every month they consistently come out with cute stuff. Some stores get little lulls and my bank account get a break, but J.Crew just keeps pulling me in. Anyway, I wore this to a BBQ and I’m sure I will wear it again and again, so pardon my stripes.

CFDA Awards 2013

The CFDA Awards…One of fashion’s biggest nights, so of course the attendees did not disappoint when it came to their attire. I don’t think there was anything that I hated, so I’m not even going to do a worsts on this one. There were a few that weren’t my favorite, but most of these outfits were pretty amazing.

Adriana Lima: Beautiful as always…legs for days.

Adriana Lima CDFA

Candice Swanepoel: ditto to what I just said about Adriana. Candice Swanepoel CFDA

Elizabeth and Mary-Kate Olsen: Not a huge fan of Elizabeth’s big sheet looking outfit…but I love Mary-Kate’s ruffled look. They both look beautiful though.Elizabeth and Mary-Kate Olsen CFDA

Sofia Vergara: Great color on her, but a very familiar shape.Sofia Vergara CFDA

Jourdan Dunn:¬†Only certain people could pull this off…she’s one of them.

Jourdan Dunn CFDA

Karolina Kurkova: She should never hide her legs…ever.Karolina Kurkova CFDA

Jessica Chastain: Classy and simple.Jessica Chastain CFDA

Joan Smalls:¬†Another simple and classic evening dress…she could wear jeans and a tee and it’d be ok.Joan Smalls CFDAKate Mara: I just think she is darling. Not my favorite dress, but I think she made it cute with simple hair and a cute necklace.Kate Mara CFDA

Nicole Richie: The only thing I don’t love about this is that I wish her hair was a little softer and more Hollywood glamour with this amazing dress.¬†Nicole Richie CFDA2

Linda Evangelista: I really like how dramatic this is and her makeup is gorg.Linda Evangelista CFDA

Lily Aldridge: I LOVE this dress…Not loving the shoes…they make her feet look too big. Nothing about her can be considered big.Lily Aldridge CFDA

Rose Byrne: I am slightly disappointed with this, but I think it could have been 5 times better if she had put her hair up.Rose Byrne CFDA

Hailee Steinfeld: This is probably the only outfit I would have put on a worst dressed…It looks a little prairie to me. It’s just too long, not a great print, and her hair isn’t helping the polygamy vibe¬†Hailee Steinfeld CFDA

Rooney Mara: This would have been on my favorites, but something about the shoes is throwing me off…I LOVE the dress. It’s completely her.Rooney Mara CFDA

Jessica Hart: I should hate this…but I don’t completely. I obviously wish the top didn’t have the cutouts because it looks like a monokini swim suit, but I do really like the skirt, and she looks like she’s glowing. She’s so pretty.Jessica Hart CFDA

Miranda Kerr: This is the cutest dress. I love her in this.Miranda Kerr CFDA

Ashley Madekwe: I wanted to put this on my favorites so bad, but I just don’t like the shoes!!! I wish she had done a cute strappy sandal or even a heavy sandal. I just don’t like the bright white, but I love the shape and color of the dress.Ashley Madekwe CFDA

My Favorites!

I figured I would just do a favorites section for this Awards posts since I didn’t have any ‘worst dressed’. Let me know your thoughts! Of course all of the VS Angels looked fab, but I had to mix it up a little, so here are the people who rocked my socks off.

Jessica Stam: I love how funky and fun this is. The lucite shoes and peplum are very on trend. She just looks like she’s having a lot of fun!Jessica Stam CFDA2

Alessandra Ambrosio: At first glance you might think this is boring, but the fit is so amazing, and I think she looks incredibly gorgeous.Alessandra Ambrosio CFDA

Olivia Palermo: Very Gatsby…This is fabulous. At first I didn’t like the shoes, but they grew on me.Olivia Palermo CFDA

Hilary Rhoda: Black and White is a huge trend this year and I love the twisting of the two colors. Simple shoes and a red lip. Perfect.Hilary Rhoda CFDA

Erin Wasson: She can pull off any trend I see her in. I am obsessed with the see-through cut-out look of this dress. This dress is so crisp and clean. It’s gorgeous. I love that that is how her hair and make-up is also. Amazing.Erin Wasson CFDA

Kerry Washington: I LOVE this color on her. Way to make her stand out. She literally can do no wrong this year. She looks fantastic. Kerry Washington CFDA
