Long (Black) Dress and a Shoooooort (Denim) Jacket

Yes, the original song lyric is “short skirt and a looooong jacket,” but you get it.

I normally don’t really pay much attention to which celebrities wear what, but I have to say I was amused when I saw both Emma Stone and January Jones wearing almost exactly the same thing I wore the other day.  (True I wore it later in the week than they, and much less formally, but I also didn’t have a stylist dressing me.)  Click on the image for source and article.

Sequins in the City

All my 30-30 clothes are in the hamper waiting to be washed.  And I will get around to that eventually.  It’s such a nice feeling to put them behind me for a bit.  I feel like my options are endless now!  It did really help to recalibrate my feeling of having nothing in my closet!

I took the day off to spend with my parents who were in town visiting.  A morning hike and a delicious breakfast and then wandering around the mall and dinner out on the town.  It was a very nice day.

My outfit transitioned from day to evening nicely with loose inspiration from Isabel Marant’s F/W ’10 show.  Sequin leggings aren’t really a viable option for most of us but I loved the cropped pants with pointy shoes.

You may recall that I also have this sequin shirt in navy, yes, I own two colors of the same shirt – hey they were on sale!)  You can’t really tell from the picture but they’re matte sequins which I liked.

30-30 Day 27

I had to work today, an Oscar party at my office.  I normally don’t watch the Oscars, and could mostly care less about who wins what.  This is ironic given that I work in Hollywood in the oh-so-glamorous movie industry.  The only thing I really like is seeing the dresses and how people put things together.  I don’t have much occasion to wear floor length ball gowns but it is interesting how style choices made by stars and their stylists trickle down to us lowly masses.

I have to say I really loved the red dresses that appeared.  I’m predicting that red dresses will star showing up in every-day wear.  See all the dresses on MSN’s Entertainment page.

I decided to wear my red dress one last time this month.  But since I was running around managing the catering crew I needed to wear flats.  It looks a lot less dressy with the boots, but it’s functional so I guess that’s all you can hope for on a day when you’re running around.

I love this dress and I’m so glad I got it.  I think it will be a work-horse year-round, even though I’ll probably wear it out before I get tired of it – which usually happens with dresses from H&M.

Inspiration Board: Spring 2011

I’m beginning to think about clothes I want to wear during the spring months (short as they are here in LA).  I came across this lovely catalog from Talbots.  Talbots used to be such a fuddy duddy grandma type store.  They’re either changed their look or I’m older now – could be both – and I love the pictures from this season’s catalog.

It’s classy and timeless and the way I envision myself dressing when I’m a grown-up (some day).

Perhaps my spring wardrobe could take some inspiration from this while also keeping a bit of my youthful trendiness that I’m using up in the last years of my 20’s.

This picture reminds me of my sister (who has almost exactly this classy style) and me. We had so much fun getting dressed and sharing clothes when we lived together in college.  I miss her so much!
