Trend Alert – Long Nails

At first I wasn’t sure about this trend. I thought that they were scary and looked like witch nails. But then I kept seeing them over and over on cute celebs (not just the scary ones), and I got more interested. Then I was seeing them all over instagram and some of my friends got them and I was like ok I’m going to try them. Now I’m kind of obsessed. I really like them because I think they are lady like if you do them right. Plus, if you want to do any of the fun nail art that’s “all the rage” right now it gives you a lot more room on your nail to do it.

First, here are a couple of my favorite celebs with them!

Adele was one of the first to start doing these.

While, Rihanna and Lana del Rey are repeat offenders, in a good way in my opinion. I always love to see what they are gonna do. Bad Girl gets a little crazy for my most of the time, but I still love seeing hers.images (1)tumblr_ldcor3f4eF1qa3cq2o1_500_large

Lana’s are usually a little long for me, but she’s my beauty idol right now. Love her.lana-del-rey-deliciousnail-trends-stiletto-nails-lana-del-rey

Of course, I think the shape definitely changes how I feel about them. My favorite is the almond shape. The “stiletto” or mountain peak is a little too scary for me. But that’s just me personally and the shape of my hands!

Here are a couple of the ones I have gotten done. I was so obsessed with these first ones. I was so sad when they grew out! But it’s fun because I’ve been finding so many other styles I want to try, especially for fall! I do think that the plain nude nail is one my favorite go-to nails right now though.

Here are a couple more than I’ve found on pinterest and the internet that I love!

Southwestern Trend: Summer 2013

WhoWhatWear did a big post on The Southwestern Trend for Summer 2013 and it has been one of my favorite trends as well, so I wanted to piggyback a little bit and do my own take on it! I love this style. I recently took a few pictures up at my cabin in this style, so you will see “my southwestern” style soon, but I love the way celebrities have been wearing it and all of the stores have been branding with it, so here you go! One of my favorite trends for this summer!

Celeb Looks: take some tips from your favorites ladies for ideas on how to wear this trend.

So here are a few great clothing items to add to your closet if you are loving this style as much as I am. But don’t forget you can totally carry this into fall as well! I’m definitely planning on doing it! Throw a sweater over one of the maxi dresses, or add a scarf to the jeans and tee and you’ve turned a summer outfit into a fall outfit in a few seconds. Plus spring booties can be flipped over to fall just like that as well. Then you’re getting more use out of them!

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

The Met Gala 3013

I cannot tell you how much I loved the outfits this year. The theme made it so fun – Punk: Chaos to Couture. Loved it! You’ll be able to tell that I had a really hard time narrowing down the outfits to post, and especially my favorites. I had so many. Of course there were some pretty bad ones, but there were some AMAZING outfits this year. You kind of have to keep in mind the theme for some of them though, because they might seem kind of out there, but they totally fit the night. And some were great dresses, but then I didn’t like them because they were so plain! If you have a party with a theme, why not go all out for it?! After all the Met Gala is a Costume Party. It seemed like everyone who was anyone was there. I would have died to be able to go to something like this. I can’t wait to see if you agree with my picks or not! Anyway, here you go!
Instagram-Pictures-Met-Gala-2013

Jessica Alba: I had to start with someone who barely missed my best dressed because I seriously had to narrow it down. This is fabulous. It just didn’t stand out as much as some of my other favs. I wish you could see her shoes though…they were to die for.jessica alba met gala

Kristen Stewart: I almost put this in my favs too, because there was something about it that I loved because it’s really creative. Kristen Stewart met gala

Nina Dobrev: I really like this in the weirdest way. She looks absolutely gorgeous and it’s a great way to stand out.nina dobrev met gala

Gwyneth Paltrow: She looks beautiful as always and I love the dress, but it doesn’t really fit the theme at all. She stands out of the crowd though.gwyneth paltrow met gala

Alexa Chung: I’m not totally sure on this one. I don’t hate it, but it’s not really my favorite either.Alexa Chung met gala

Lily Aldridge: Again, not totally with the theme, but she looks great.lily aldridge met gala

Gwen Stefani: Gwen is like the queen of punk…Are you kidding me? Remember her pink hair? I loved her. This totally reminds me of 90s Gwen.gwen stefani met gala

Cameron Diaz: She looks so chic. I love this look.cameron diaz met gala

Dakota Fanning: She’s all grown up and grow wings, but I kinda like it.dakota fanning met gala

Christina+Ricci+Vivienne+Westwood+Met+Gala+2013+1

Ginnifer Goodwin: I was trying to decide if I liked this dress, but I couldn’t get past her hair and that horrible eye makeup. Then I decided that I hated the fade at the bottom too.ginnifer_goodwin_met_gala_18ogil5-18ogin4

Mary Kate Olsen: I think I would like the dress underneath, but she looks horribly old in this picture, and I think she took a fortune teller’s coat and attached her dog to it. Mary-Kate Olsen met gala
