The Oscars

Either I’m becoming bored and jaded or there really isn’t much to talk about. Most of the dresses at The Oscars didn’t warrant being placed in either my “love” or “hate” category, although a significant number of them fell firmly into “meh.”

With that said, here’s my take on last night’s dresses.


Charlize Theron–Saw her in Barneys in Beverly Hills last week, and I’m smitten.

Jane Fonda–Making growing older look like a walk in the park

Jennifer Hudson–Rockin’ the blue bling

Sandra Bullock–Elegant, in spite of the sheer panels

Stacy Keibler–Of course, she looks great in everything. Good work, George.

Robin Roberts–Magnificent color on a magnificent woman

Melissa McCarthy–Singularly unflattering…from the color to the cut

Louise Roe–This reminds me of the scene from “Carrie” where the bucket of blood is dumped on Sissy Spacek.

Kelly Rowland–Just. Too. Much.

Helena Bonham Carter–Ah, Helena, you never let me down!

Brandi Glanville–Why even bother putting on clothes? If those boobs survived the evening, I’d be shocked.

Anne Hathaway–Darts as nipples…amusing look

Spring is (almost) here!

Okay…so there’s snow on the ground as I write this, but there’s a glimmer of spring in the air. The Daphne are beginning to bloom, and their heady fragrance of spice hints at the warm weather to come. So what if it’s still cold?

Anthropologie has solved that problem with the Ajuda Field Blazer. A little bit Monet…a little bit romantic…and a lot cozy…this blazer-inspired sweater is the perfect transitional wear from winter to spring.

Body conscious and fitted, it’s a great way to show off toned shoulders and arms for those of you who spend a lot of time in the gym. If that’s not your style, sizing up will give you a looser, more forgiving fit.

Because of the intensity of color, I prefer it paired with basic black. Both skinny and flared pants will work…or a pencil skirt…and a simple tank or T. Oh…and perhaps your favorite floral fragrance to enhance the mood.
