And the Oscar goes to…

The Oscars were on Sunday. (and unless you live under a rock you already knew that…)

Although the Oscars is an amazing event recognizing the talented artistry of film in this past year, the most spectacular part of Sunday occurred before the ceremony even began.

Oh yes, I’m talking about the red carpet.

In case you are a normal human being (unlike me) and weren’t glued to the TV ready at 6pm for E’s live coverage of the red carpet, let me fill you in on the stars that truly stood out!

Starting with my best dressed Oscar 2012 winner:

Giuliana Rancic.

Can you be more fabulous?

How did this woman just recover from breast cancer? She is truly stunning, to say the least!

Some of my other favorites included:

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen

Rose Byrne in Vivienne Westwood

Ellie Kemper in Armani Prive

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

What a beautiful end to a gorgeous awards season!

Who was your best dressed?

As always, keep it sweet + chic ❤

Chic Activewear: part II

As promised last night, I’d love to share with you all my budget friendly options for looking sweet + chic while working out.

 

Save: sweet + chic activewear

Aerie french terry hoodie
$3,950 – ae.com

Athleta cami top
athleta.gap.com

NIKE lacing running shoes
$54 – nike.com

Puma handbag
$60 – nordstrom.com

Hair accessory
$8 – sportsauthority.com

Even though, we’d all like to be the face of Lululemon on a day to day basis – that kind of budget just isn’t an option when you’re a college student, like me!

So, instead I wait for sales, clip my coupons, and buy my activewear basics at places like Target, Aerie, and GapBody.

Sure, Target’s yoga pants won’t last you a lifetime, but who can pass up a $20 deal?!

In addition to these stores, I have a secret weapon for buying quality exercise gear for half the regular retail price. What is this secret  weapon, you ask?

…A little place called TJMAXX.

At TJMaxx you can find quality brands like Nike, Underarmour, and Calvin Klein Activewear for 25-75% off what you’ll find in their regular retail stores!

You won’t regret scanning the TjMaxx racks for a brand new Nike Sports Bra, I promise 🙂

 

That’s all for now! Keep it sweet + chic ❤

2012 SAG Awards: My Best Dressed List

Last night from 6-8pm my eyes were glued to the television as stars strutted their stuff down the red carpet at the 2012 SAG awards.  Some stars looked stunning while others missed the mark in get ups that I couldn’t be paid to wear in public.

Instead of focusing on the fashion fails, I want to share my favorite looks of the night!

Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera

Jayma Mays in Reem Acra

Kyra Sedgwick in Emilio Pucci

Giuliana Rancic in Basil Soda

Viola Davis in Marchesa

Michelle Williams in Valentino

Gorgeous gowns and stunning women!! Oh, how I love gushing over the beauty of awards season fashion!

Happy Monday! Hope you have a fabulous and chic evening 🙂
