[ed. note: This was SUPPOSED to post on Tues. but it randomly showed up a day and a half later…Sorry!] Last night was the Met Gala. Since it was punk themed I had high hopes for everyone to take risks and wear something a bit more edgy. Most people sadly seemed to miss that memo though. However, there were a few stand out looks of the evening. Miley Cyrus absolutely killed it in her mesh Marc Jacobs dress and awesome spiked up hair. SJP had a great Phillip Treacy mohawk headpiece. Cara Delevigne had on an amazing spiked Bureberry gown with a plunging neckline. Anne Hathaway looked good in her Valentino and T. Swift actually looked pretty in J Mendel. I also was a huge fan of the people that wore dresses with cut outs. This included Emma Watson in Prabal Garung, Jessica Alba in Tory Burch, and Miranda Kerr in Michael Kors. I know we have to give Kim K a break because she’s pregnant except…does she know she’s pregnant? She’s been avoiding maternity clothes and wearing extremely ill fitting, unflattering outfits instead and last night was no exception. One day I would LOVE to be able to go to the Met Gala myself and wear an incredible dress. A girl can dream right? Head over to vogue.com/topics/met-gala for all the pics and coverage.
This is a preview from Karl Lagerfeld’s new short film about Coco Chanel starring Kiera Knightley titled “Once Upon A Time…” Its set in the first Chanel boutique but beyond that I’m not quite sure what its about - though really does it matter? Anything Lagerfeld makes is wonderful and judging by this preview its going to be pretty clothes and equally pretty people!
Receiving packages in the mail is the greatest thing ever! I was super excited to find not one but TWO on my doorstep. In one was the silver spike bracelet from NastyGal. The other contained the pink and gold braided bracelet from Bauble Bar. Both were inexpensive yet will make great statement pieces. Love it!
Last night I attended the event at Opening Ceremony hosted by American Express. We were able to preview the fall/winter 2013 collection and preorder anything that fancied us. (There was also 20% off everything else in the store!) I was super into the fur slap bracelet pictured above. It’s a slap bracelet…and it’s fur! What is not to love?! The evening also included champagne which makes any evening amazing, of course. As we were leaving they handed us the tote bag and key chain pictured above. Apparently there was an OC loves EP theme (Elvis Presley). However, besides the free gift and one Elvis song being played I didn’t see it represented anywhere else. Maybe I was missing something? All in all it was a fun night browsing through all the new clothes.
When I log onto RueLaLa and OneKingsLane and every sale is wedding-themed
We’ve all been waiting for what seems like decades for the new Great Gatsby movie to come out. (It’s finally happening soon…right?!) In the meantime the movie has teamed up with Brooks Brothers to release a limited edition collection. According to them it “channels the dreamlike world of pristine green lawns and lavish parties depicted in the original 1925 novel” and “Brooks Brothers is mentioned numerous times in Fitzgerald’s writings as a representation of the ultimate gentleman’s purveyor of fine clothing to the American man of distinction.” Click through to see the collection. I’m feeling the preppy and stylish collection. I think we could use a few more dapper men in this world. I’d love if more men dressed like this - I think they’d look very handsome!
