Oscar Style at Home: Three Looks from the Runway to Your Front Door

Okay so I didn’t get invited to the Academy Awards this year…But it’s fine, it’s whatever. There’s always next year, right?! I did watch the awards show briefly, but I only really care about the fashion. And let me say…I was rather disappointed with the red carpet gowns this year. There were a lot of dresses that had potential but ended up falling short. For example, I loved the texture and color of Emma Stone’s gown, but I just couldn’t get on board with the crazy shoulders. Then there was a collection of just completely unflattering looks! Nonetheless, I picked three of my favorites and rounded up similar dresses for you to shop, so you can bring the runway to your front door. Every day should be a fashion show, and the world is your red carpet! (Totally cheesy, but I still love it.) Most of the dresses are cocktail dresses so you can wear them for normal-people special occasions because, unfortunately, not all of us have black-tie events to attend. So get out your cute wallets and happy shopping! Continue reading “Oscar Style at Home: Three Looks from the Runway to Your Front Door”

5 Formal Wear Looks

I’m so excited for today’s blog post! I spent last night surfing the web for the prettiest (and most reasonably priced) formal dresses for your next big occasion…as well as shoes, accessories, and clutches to come in clutch (as the kids say). I really love how all these looks turned out, and even though I may not have a formal event coming up any time soon—sad day—I do know lots of you have prom to look forward to! I don’t miss high school, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss homecoming and prom. So whether you have an auction, dance, sorority formal, or other event that requires dressing up, I’ve got you covered! Literally, because going naked might be too much of a statement.

8 Unique Gift Ideas

Even with the slew of frustrating technical difficulties I’m facing right now (ugh), I still wanted to share this post to give you some out-of-the-box Christmas ideas. Now, I know what you’re probably thinking… “Grace, you’re a total hypocrite, you just published a post a few weeks ago about why you don’t do gift guides!” To which I would respond, “Yes, you’re totally right.” Usually, I don’t share gift guides during the holiday season because I think it’s really hard to find the perfect gift for someone you know based on universal suggestions. This year, however, I brainstormed a few personalized gift ideas that might help combat that issue. But don’t worry, I am totally owning up to my hypocrisy right now! And without further ado, here’s a handful of (mostly) personalized gift ideas to get the juices flowing for your holiday shopping. Continue reading “8 Unique Gift Ideas”
