Red Carpet Fashion: Emmys 2011

This years Emmy show was quite underwhelming. A bit of a snooze-fest if you will. (although that faux beauty pageant bit during the Best Female Lead in a Comedy section was pretty great) So thank goodness the red carpet was filled with fun and fresh fashion. The color of the night was definitely red and the bold color was chosen by more than a handful of ladies. Also trending on the carpet were tons of sparkly dresses (which made me super giddy) a bit of lace and a few pops of color thrown here and there. While the latest red carpets have been some what hit or miss I fell in love with quite a few of the looks featured last night. So let's get down to my favorite picks.

Nicole Miller Spring 2012 RTW

Calling Nicole Miller's Spring 2012 collection "bright" would be an understatement. Citing inspiration from skateboarding and the energy from the X-games, Miller's bold prints and wearable separates were a breath of fresh air in an often dress heavy selection. The runway show's program read "The speed of wheels in motion. The momentum of a skateboard shredding through the air." And to be honest this collection definitely had an aire about it. Vivid neon mixed with silky solid colors so as not to overwhelm the total look. And while taking note from something so masculine as Extreme Sports she pulled off most of the collection with a surprising amount of femininity. Although not every piece was lovable there were a few here and there that I couldn't resist sharing. Plus I'm on such a neon kick right now it's ridiculous. Here we go...

NYFW Spring 2012 Great Looks

While I'd like to do a rundown of all my favorite runway shows, I don't have enough time! So I thought I'd show you some of the looks I love from a few of the major shows.

Cynthia Rowley Spring 2012

We all know how much I am in love with sequins! So this look obviously tugged on my sparkly heart. Shimmer and sweaters!

Christian Siriano Spring 2012 RTW

It's no secret how much I love Christian Siriano. I may be a bit biased when it comes to his collections but I seriously do think he is a talented designer. He is so playful and fun with his designs which makes clothes fun to wear. Plus his finale dresses are always larger than life and scream glamour. As the Season 4 winner of Project Runway he's still trying to make a household name for himself and prove his worthiness to the fashion world. His latest collection from NYFW is proof that he's here to stay as one of the world's rising designers. Christian's pieces for spring consisted of more wearable separates in neutrals with pops of color. Unlike last year where loud and vibrant prints took center stage, this collection had a simpler and more refined touch letting the frilly colored fabric speak for itself. Let's take a look shall we?

Poll: Sarah Jessica Parker's European Press Tour

I'm so excited to see SJP's newest movie I Don't Know How She Does It. It looks so cute and I there are so many hilarious people in the ensemble cast. Lately Sarah Jessica has been hitting the European press circuit for the movie looking amazing... Hopefully she'll be pulling out all the stops when she promotes the movie here in the US next week.

I want to know what look you love the best...

Which Sarah Jessica Parker Look Do You Love?

Happy polling!

Labor Day in San Francisco [Photos]

This past weekend we spent the holiday in San Francisco for a wedding. It was my first time there and while the weather wasn't the greatest I really enjoyed spending time with friends who live far away! That's one of my favorite parts about wedding weekends. I'm a little under the weather this week [from my trip of course...] so sorry this is such a belated post!

The weather was so crummy but it was still amazing to see the Golden Gate bridge! A pretty overwhelming site...

Loved seeing these girls {Christie, Eliz, Whit, Annie a.k.a soulmate! Lauren, Kym and Bunny}

The wedding had a photobooth - I love playing around with these!

Monday we got to spend the afternoon back home at the beach. While we usually love the Venice skateboard area, we found a new place to people watch - Venice "Roller Rink" - pure awesomeness.

Hope you enjoyed your time off of work/school/life and stopped to be thankful for all you have! xoxo
