Golden Globes 2014

I could barely even come up with worst dresseds…There were so many fabulous dresses…ohmigosh I was dying. My worst dresseds were actually a little shocking. Maybe they were trying to take risks and they didn’t really work out? My favorite colors this awards show were surprisingly red and black. You’d think that red would sink in with the carpet, but they were all stand outs and the black dresses were amazing…Look below and tell me your favs!

Amy Poehler – She is killing this black dress. Simple and sophisticated with a little bit of fun.amy-poehler

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Kerry Washington – She actually looks like she could be playing Olivia Pope right now, but I glad she doesn’t look like Drew Barrymore.kerry-washington

Hayden Panettiere – not a fan of the hair, but the dress is pretty good.hayden-panettiere

Emma Watsonemma-watson

Julia Roberts julia-roberts

Julie Bowen – I actually liked this. The sleeves are a tiny bit poofy, but I love the colors together and she’s freaking tiny!julie-bowen

Sofia Vergara – I love that this is different than her usual mermaid gown. It’s like princess Sofia.sofia-vergara

Lupita-Nyonglupita-nyong

Zooey Deschanelzooey-deschanel

Sarah Hyland – I think she looks a little plain Jane here…the dress and the makeup…sarah-hyland

Jessica Chastain – Gorg as usual.jessica-chastain

Tina Fey – Different for her…still deciding if I like it or not…tina-fey

Reese Witherspoon – Slightly underwhelming, but the color makes it fantastic.reese-witherspoon

Paula Patton – I’m not entirely sure if she stole this dress from Lady Gaga, but I’m pretty sure you can see her abs through her dress. Gah. She still looks great. And there is something that I’m loving about it anyway.paula-patton

Maria Menounos – She probably has one of the best bodies ever. Kill me.maria-menounos

Kaley Cuoco

Lena Dunham – Umm she looks great! I love this…it’s still Lena, but I’m loving her!lena-dunham

Amber Heard – This slit it worse than the Angelina from last year and I don’t know if she has animals hiding in her hair or she got electrocuted and didn’t have time to re-do it?amber-heard

Jennifer Lawrence – I’m really sad about this one. I just don’t love it. One of my friends posted a picture of her next to Ariel from the Little Mermaid when she’s in the rope and sheets…I died laughing so I had to repost. It’s true. That’s what it looks like.jennifer-lawrence612025_1294095550198_full

Heidi Klum – Twice in a row for her…I don’t know why she keeps picking ugly prints. And it’s also not the early 90’s so I don’t know where that choker came from.

heidi-klum

Drew Barrymore – Again with the bad pregnant dresses. (Drew – see Olivia Wilde). These are so unflattering and I could pick flowers off of you.

drew-barrymore

Sanda Bullock – This looks WAY too big on her and I’m not sure I love the colors together. It looks prom-ish.sandra-bullock

Zoe Saldana – There is really a lot going on here and I really don’t like any part of it. It’s just too much.
zoe-saldana

Aubrey Plaza – Purple People Eater? It doesn’t really fit her…and it looks unfinished on the bottom.

Taylor Swift – I like this because it’s not sequined or metallic and that’s her go-to. Gorg.taylor-swift

Leslie Mann – She never does black so I’m loving this…plus the lace on top is gorgeous.leslie-mann

Mila Kunis – I love this metallic number on her. Flawless makeup as usual.mila-kunis

Jenna Dewan-Tatum – She had a baby less than a year ago…ugh. I love the detail on the dress. Not overdone.jenna-dewan-tatum

Naomi Watts – I love the way the metallic sheen hugs her in all the right places. naomi-watts-liev-schreiber

Kate Beckinsale – Don’t hate me because I’m perfect.kate-beckinsale

Olivia Wilde – Umm cutest pregnant lady ever? This color is amazing.

Amy Adams – I love the two tone red. She looks flawless. I want her body.amy-adams

Sequins and Flannel

I really love how Free People mixed these two different materials on this top. You probably wouldn’t think to pair these two together, but I love it. I want to wear this all the time. I wish I had bought the other color too.

One of my favorite Christmas presents was the Love necklace I received from my friends. It’s so cute and I have been wearing it non-stop!

Jennifer Hudson – She looks so great in this dress. Still getting used to her hair.

Naya Rivera – Love this. Her hair looks so great.

Britney Spears – I actually really like the dress, but I feel like her hair washed her out a little bit and I would have paired it with a peep toe heel.Britney-Spears--2014-Peoples-Choice-Awards--02-560x928

Sarah Michelle Gellar – I can’t decide on this one. I like it, but I feel like the skirt makes her look older than she is.

Sandra Bullock – Love her. Sandra Bullock PC

Malin Akerman – I think she looks good and I like the print, but I HATE the cut.

Beth Behrs – I really like this. Doesn’t stand out as a favorite, but it’s good.

Kat Dennings – I don’t hate the dress, but it just seems like she can never figure out how to handle her boobs.Kat Dennings

Worsts

Anna Faris – She just looks very washed out and in the wrong decade.Anna Faris PC

Drew Barrymore – I know she’s pregnant, but she could have picked something more flattering and colors that were more slimming.Drew+Barrymore+40th+Annual+People+Choice+Awards+HKAGT1ZLIChl

Heidi Klum – I really don’t like this print or the neckline and her hair is too harsh. I don’t like how slick it is.Heidi Klum PC

Lucy Hale – The dress fits fine, but I can’t tell if it’s floral or a solar system. I just didn’t love it compared to what she usually picks.Lucy Hale PC

Melissa Joan Hart – I don’t think this is flattering. It’s too springy for this season and I don’t love the colors for her. I also hate the shoes. They don’t do anything for her legs.Melissa Joan Hart

Paris Hilton – I never thought Paris Hilton would ever make my best dressed list, but you have to admit, she looks pretty good and her dress it so cute. It fits hers perfectly and the color it fabulous on her.Paris Hilton PC

Jessica Alba – Jason Wu looks great on her. Is she just perfect or what?Jessica Alba PC

Allison Williams – I’m pretty sure she has not had a fashion mistake ever. I love this color on her and I love her. Dress by David Koma. Allison-Williams-People-Choice-Awards-2014

Spotted Fur Coat and Leith Midi Dress

It’s safe to say that I went a little crazy with fur (faux of course) this season. You’ll find that out as more posts come. This is a fun one because I don’t think you see this print very much. I saw this and loved it, but I had to text my friend to make sure it wasn’t too out there because I reminded myself of a cow. Then I thought about it and I didn’t care because I liked it and that’s all that matters right?

I also LOVE these boots. I got them out the Steve Madden Mountain Store at City Creek. (see below for the phone number) I can’t stop wearing them!

Lady in Red

A lot of times I like to wear a simple outfit and let my accessories and/or shoes be the focal points. While this dress is bright red and easily stands out itself, the shape is simple and it doesn’t have a crazy print or anything that draws the eye away from the necklace I paired it with. The statement necklace definitely draws the eye so that is why I like to wear it with something plain or simple. The same goes with my shoes. The tights also hide the pattern in the cut of the shoe to tone it down, but these are some of the best shoes I’ve found lately. I absolutely love them!

New Year’s Eve Attire

Hello loves! Just stopping by to show you all my New Year’s Eve outfit! I have been so swamped lately because I’ve been in California and then my family came back with me to Utah and I’ve been trying to spend as much time with them as possible! My little brother leaves at the end of the month for two years to Argentina on a mission for our church so I will only get to talk to him through letters and basically on Christmas. Plus I had to go back to work this week and it’s always hard after a long vacation…and I didn’t even work a full week! I also bought a new car! Yay! Busy Busy!

Anyway, I was obsessed with this skirt and thought it was perfect for New Years!
