82nd Academy Awards: my votes for best dressed

What a night last night was! I've got to say, I either loved or hated every look on the red carpet. I don't think there was any middle ground for me. The hottest trend of the night would have to be the look of metallic hues, and gold colored gowns. The red carpet was also filled with hues of bright colors from orange, to fuchsia, and blues, as well as creamy peaches and pinks. The favorite silhouettes of the night included gowns featuring tiers of ruffles, floor-length gowns as well strapless styles.
Here are some of my favorite gowns (in no particular order)

Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab

Cameron Diez in Oscar de la Renta

Carey Mulligan in Prada

Elizabeth Banks in Versace

Demi Moore in Altier Versace

Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab

Sarah Jessica Parker in Chanel Couture

Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa

hello spring, hello rompers.

this is a look I adore.
rompers are BIG for spring!
floral, solid, and cute geometric prints scream sunshine!
shoes? I would recommend wedges or gladiator sandals with this look :)

pixie market

good morning!
I was browsing pixie market this morning and found quite a few things I loved.
here's a couple outfits I wish I had in my closet today...
happy tuesday!

white trumpet tulle cage dress with black opaque tights

mary meyer triangle tank with oversized cardigan

would you?

I can't seem to decide.
would you wear this necklace?

its all about the basics

There's nothing I love more than layers of basic tanks and tees (i'm especially loving v necks right now)
you can mix colors and patterns together and create beautiful looks
try them with ripped jeans, leggings, or a cute high waisted skirt
and mix it up with a scarf, or some funky jewelry
try it yourself!

Gabriella Cortese

Spotlight On::

Gabriella Cortese

Born in Italy, Gabriella Cortese learned embroidery and dressmaking from her grandmother before moving to Paris to study art at age 18. Her line, Antik Batik was inspired by travels and experiences: At a job at the Crazy Horse in Paris, Balinese artisans taught her the craft of Batik, a traditional African technology for dyeing cloth. Her travels in India exposed her to other exquisite hand-dyeing and embroidery techniques. With Cortese at the helm, Antik Batik is more than a fashion label, it's a lifestyle.
