As a little nod to the gold of the Oscars I’m wearing a gold floral lace top from Anthro I picked up on super sale. I used to think floral tops screamed Grandma.
My Grandma used to sew all of her own clothes and she often chose florals for her blouses. This shot was taken on her 91st birthday. I miss her dearly.
I’ve moved past the idea that florals are only for Grandmas and love florals anywhere, all the time. I spotted this boho blouse that is drop dead gorgeous for less than $13. This one that would suit everyone also has me drooling. Although I’d be hard pressed to wear this stunning bold one with jeans I’d wear it in an instant with a high waisted full skirt as well as this one with the unique Audrey Hepburn collar. So retro chic!
Back to the Academy Awards…
We managed to see most of the films nominated this year in anticipation of our annual Oscars party, however Robert was called away last minute to Ethiopia…so the party is nixed. I cannot party without my barman.
Ah well. I’ll still make myself some fancy popcorn and me and Zoë will critique all of the red carpet outfits together. You’d think she would be quite easy going on the whole fashion thing as she wears the same furry pants every damn day, but she is surprisingly harsh with her judgements. I’ll let you know who she winds up picking as her favourites.
My favourite films were Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel. I pretty much liked all of the films nominated for best picture though.
Favourite actor… would have to be Eddie Redmayne. He was unbelievable but I think probably Michael Keaton will win.
Favourite actress…I didn’t see the film with Julian Moore yet but I think she is a brilliant actress and will probably win. She was incredible in Maps to the Stars.
I apologize for the gratuitous pug butt.
Once again…Zoë insists on stealing all the spotlight.
These were taken before she had her emergency surgery. She has dropped some weight now and looks quite trim. I’m sure that’ll only last a few weeks though. She takes after her Mommy in that regard.
By the way I’ve finally broken down and joined Instagram. I’ve spent the last week just trying to figure it out. I don’t feel like I’m winning that battle yet, but I’m forcing myself to use it. Now I’m one of those annoying people taking photos of their food. So come and see what I baked and cooked this week (exciting I know!) plus more cute pugs pics (of course) and a bit of shopping and some jewellery designs I’m working on.
Who are your favourites for the Oscars? Or are you more interested in what they will be wearing?
How do you feel about floral tops? Fab or frump?
