Evite Postmark + 50 Evite credits just for you..

A few years ago I met a wonderful British gentlemen who absolutely swept me off my feet...  Well as swept as I can get.. which those who know me.. it takes some doing to impress me... and that impressing has nothing to do with size.. wallet or otherwise.   Anyhow... He was handsome, classy, well dressed,

 The Look
Skirt: Bleulab Denim (gifted)
Top: Generation Love C/o Deitch Pr
Boots: Jean Michel Cazabat
Earrings: Forever 21
Wallet: YSL
Bracelet: Noir
Lips: MAC Diva
Sunnies: Jason Wu
Today is going to be a pretty crazy day.. so I will make this short and sweet.. 

First lets have a brief chat about the amazingness of this Bleulab Reversible suede on one side metallic silver in the other skirt.  I couldn't decided which side to wear so I made the choice to show you both.  Which coincidentally involved me running behind a parked car to do the reversing.. almost positive a man walking by saw a little more than he planned to that day.  Anyhow..

It's super soft and absolutely beautiful on both sides.  Photo above in metallic...photo below in Suede..

The Generation Love top..  Quickly climbing my list of awesome lines.. I adore the simplicity of this top.. It's what I like to call a throw on..  It's easy and always looks good.  Sometimes you have to let the clothes do the work for you.

Have a wondrous Tuesday..

The Bold and the Beautiful.. SAG Awards 2013


After watching the Screen Actors Guild Awards last night I felt compelled to salute the ladies who took risks and won..

In a sea of red carpets where everyone is starting to look Like cookie cutter versions of each other..these ladies strayed from the obvious and wow'd it in a beautiful way.

But first a tiny backstory:

I became a member of the Screen Actors Guild way back in 2003 (pause for reaction, and countless commercials, a few TV appearances and one homeless crack addict later (yes I played a homeless crack addict in a film that we should all forget) (AGAIN PAUSE FOR REACTION,  I have to say this is by far was one of the best SAG awards I remember.  I won't tell you who I voted for.. but let's just say.. my vote actually counted..  Yay Claire Danes!

Anyhow.. 

There is something to be said about taking risks.. being an actor the two phrases that we hear more than any are:

1. Make a Choice
2. Take a Risk 

With that said I concentrate this post on the ladies of the 2013 SAG awards that I adore not only for their immense talent.. but for their courage to take a wardrobe risk.. And contrary to popular belief I think these ladies hit it straight out of the park. 

My favorite of the night was Julie Bowen in Australian designer Johanna Johnson.. How freaking ballsy was it for her to wear a leather gown!

Since I am having trouble finding the words to describe this Johanna Johnson gown and how great Julie Bowen looks in it I thought I would steal straight from my handy Thesaurus..

..so here goes.. Julie Bowen looks 

astounding, surprising, stunning, staggering, shocking, startling, stupefying, breathtaking; awesome, awe-inspiring, sensational, remarkable, spectacular, stupendous, phenomenal, extraordinary, incredible, unbelievable; informal mind-blowing, jaw-dropping; literary wondrous.

I'm pretty sure you get my point ....


Beautifully structured..modern with a 1920 feel and completely different than any other dress on the carpet.  I die.

Here is the dress on the runway and Julie looks just as amazing as the model.
Johanna Johnson black leather gown  Spring Summer 2013 Red Carpet Collection
And now in no particular order.. The rest of my favorites from the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013..

Marion Cotillard in Doir.. Simple yet unexpected.. Feminine yet  structured and the pointed toe pump and the geometric bob set the entire look.  She looks simplyy beautiful.

Claire Danes in Givenchy.. I may not always lust after her red carpet looks but what Claire Danes does and does right is stick to looks that look great on her.  This one shoulder Givenchy is a stunner. It hides all the wrong stuff and highlights all the good stuff.  But aside from her dress I have to touch on her make up.. In a pile of bright red lips and smoky eyes..Claire Danes went the exact opposite route.. I adore her dark berry lip and her barley there eyes.  Flawless!

Anne Hathaway in Giambattista Valli..It's the right combo of sweet, flirty and sexy.  Although the fit up top is slightly askew I applaud her risk.. The platform patent leather open toe sandals add a sweet fun not so serious vibe that I absolutely adore!

Giuliana Rancic in Max Azria Atelia.. To date this is the best I have ever seen her look.  Perfect electric blue..perfect shoulder..perfect fit and the side swipe hair brings it all together.. This dress gives just the right amount of shape and curve her her body. As a host.. she was making some of the attendees look bad.. Yay Guiliana!!  

Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab. Now I am not sure if I have ever shared that I am a die hard Vampire Diaries fan.  It brings out my inner 16 year old.  So to see Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab looking absolutely perfect made me smile.  This dress is beautiful in every way. From the bright pink color to the hint of lace that trails the side of her perfect figure Nina Rocked the red carpet in every way a girl can rock the red carpet.

Julianna Margulies in Chado Ralph Rucci.. Now to be honest I don't know this designer but what I do know is that she looks incredible. I am not a fan this phrase.. but the words "age appropriate", yet fun and flirty are all components that set this look off.  Black and white always screams classy.  I would have opted for a different shoe.. but hey..  The dress shows just enough of her amazing figure to make me come running for more.. Super cute and very unexpected..

Rose Byrne in Valentino ..Now I know I may catch some flack for this one ..But I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS DRESS!   I adore the colors..the flowers..the ruffles and the fact that she stands out.. She looks like a confident movie star circa the 1940's.  Simple beautiful!

I add Tina Fey in Oscar de la Renta to my list because this is the best she has ever looked.. I literally did a double take.. Body..AMAZING.. Hair..PERFECT.. Dress..TO DIE FOR..  Belt ORGASMIC.. I need it I want it!  and yes I just referred to a belt as orgasmic!

What where your favorites?

QUICK BEAUTY POST..Organic Body...

Organic Body


I have always been obsessed with beauty products. Those who have been in my bathroom know that it is a cluster F**k of organized chaos.  Products everywhere and I use all of them.  But since 2013 hit the ground running I've been wanting to narrow down and add a lot more organic and natural products to my routine.  And lucky for us there are a whole lotta new companies out there that feel the same way.  And I over that past few weeks have been able to get my little hands on a few.. and here are the ones I ABSOLUTELY ADORE!

Here we go!!

1. Jessica Alba's The Honest Company.  I have been hearing so much about this all natural 100% chemical free line..but for some odd reason I thought that it was just for babies.. Nope.. Us adults can get in on the excitement as well. The folks over at The Honest Company sent over a Pampering Kit for me to enjoy.. and that is exactly what I have been doing.  Body Lotion..Body Oil..Hair detangler..Lip balm.. and Bubble bath.. a perfect set of great smelling, body softening products that won't break the bank or break your body.

2. The Lab Room  A European based natural beauty and fragrance company caught my eye at the DPA olden Globes gifting suite last weekend.  One Spray of their Vanille Ambar Perfume and I was hooked.  It smells like heaven.. is not too over powering..it lasts all day and it does not give you that little tiny headache because it's botanical and natural.

3. St Tropez Naturals.  One of my favorite self tan lines has come out with an all natural line for people with sensitive skin.  It works beautifully..smells good and is worry free.  The main ingredient Vegetan is naturally derived and was created by St. Tropez exclusively for this line. 

4. LVX Nail Lacquer is free of toxins and chemicals... Vegan and has colors to die for.  Their winter resort collection is on my list right now..  In lust with  Midori  It's an awesome cross between lemon and lime..  

5. Yes to Carrots cleansing face scrub is fantastic.  I've been using it for a year now and my face absolutely adores it.  Paraben and chemical free.

6. Kera Green.  If you had the chance to read my Keratin post a few weeks back (HERE) you will know that I adore this line.. The Organic shampoo, conditioner and serum are all amazing.... and we know I don't use shampoo..  Well now I do!!  Even if you don't have a Keratin treatment this combo is great!


So there you have it.. six Organic..Natural.. Awesome products that I ADORE!!

Taking Notes..Golden Globes 2013

Golden Globes 2013



As I was watching last nights Golden Globes..while simutabeoulsy eating homemade chunky tomato soup and shrimp linguine with gluten free Quinoa pasta I was taking notes 

If YOU watched lasts nights Golden Globes presentation then you probably noticed that there was a little bit of everything from solid black to solid white walking down the carpet. 

Chanel to Tom Ford to Givenchy to Donna Karen and even a lesser known British designer Erdem. 

There were so many amazing dresses of every length and shape.. and I have to say, for an awards show that so closely follows the Holidays.. there were some amazing figures in those dresses.  

I've stacked all of my favorites from the the show..  All these dresses I would wear in a heartbeat. Especially Anne Hathaway.. Amy Adams.. and Kate Hudson..  Stunning!

What were some of your favorites?

FASHION FRIDAY
 Today's Look
Jeans: Bleulab (gifted)
Faux Fur: Naven (gifted)
Booties: Celine
Bag: Lancaster Paris (gifted)

I have to start this post with the most amazing, most comfortable denim I have ever had the pleasure of wearing.  These Bleulab ballet leggings are soft..stretchy..reversible and super cute..  I've had them on practically all week.  Tribal printed on one side and black on the other.  So genius!  
It's been crazy cold the last few days in L.A.  I'm talking like 50 something and windy during the day.  On the plus side it makes for a seriously beautiful L.A. Sky!
I still die for this Naven Faux Chinchilla jacket..  So warm that even in 50 something weather I can wear my A.Wang tank.. Kind of a go to when when you have an other wise basic outfit to contend with!

Ahh the Lancaster Paris patent leather Ox Blood gold chain Amazingness!  Again I think I need every color!!
Sunnies courtesy of guest photog Peter.   Being the scatter brain that I sometimes can be I completely forgot my sunnies.. so I grabbed these off his head.. How cute are they!!  5 bucks..sunglass cart.. The Grove.. Who knew!
