Carrie Underwood CMA Awards

5 Nov

Hands down this night went to Carrie Underwood! She hosted the CMA Awards for the fifth time with Brad Paisley and the two of them are just hysterical. Aside from her comedic performances, Carrie stole the show with her 12 wardrobe changes throughout the night! She definitely kept us entertained and looking forward to what she would walk out wearing next! To start off the night Carrie rocked the red carpet with this beautiful ivory chiffon Reem Acra gown with metallic leaf details from their Spring 2013 collection. One of my favorites of the night!

Another one of my favorites was this sparkly black and gold number from Edition by Georges Chakra. Her peep-toe ankle booties added a rocker feel. When you have legs like hers you have to show them off and this short mini did its job!

Keeping with the sparkles, Carrie shined brightly in this adorable, girly Alice + Olivia sequin flare dress.

Next she covered up in this long-sleeved number by Jovani which was of course…covered in sequins!

I may have lied about my favorite…Although it’s hard to decide! But this black Ines Di Santo one-shoulder gown is a show stopper! I about died when she came out in this. It’s such a beautiful gown and the thigh-high slit adds to the WOW factor!

Here’s the rest of her dresses.

Her last dress was worn during her performance of “Blown Away”. This beautiful gunmetal gray gown by Tsemay has it all: sparkles, embellishments, chiffon and a short skirt to yet again show off those gams!

The girl can do no wrong.

The one item I always look forward to busting out of the closet every fall is my leather jacket! I wear that thing like it’s going out of style (best $40 I’ve ever spent at F21). It’s a timeless piece that makes a great addition to any Fall outfit so don’t be afraid to invest in a good one. Trust me, it’ll be worth your while! You can pair it with any outfit for an instant bad-ass look whether you’re running around during the day, out with the girls, or in between seasons.

The easiest way to rock this trend is with a simple white tee (striped if you’re like me… can’t have enough stripes!) and some skinnies. I love the ribbed skinnies because they add an even louder statement. Add studded loafers and some shades and all you’re missing is a bike!

Street

I love this look for going out, or even NYE! The sequin dress paired with the leather jacket adds a statement to even the girliest outfit.

Night Out

The biker trend doesn’t stop at just moto jackets. Pair this season’s peplum top with leather leggings for an instant edgy look.

FALLING FOR FASHION

19 Oct

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, mostly for all things pumpkin and for fashion. This season we’re seeing a lot of leather, chunky knits, embellished collars and peplum! These trends are all wearable and fun to mix and match with each other. Here are some of my favorite looks for Fall 2012:

LEATHER LEGGINGS

I’ve been lusting over these for quite a while. I love adding a pair to a simple top (peplum would look great!). It adds instant drama to any outfit and really pulls your look together.

CHUNKY KNITS

There’s nothing more cozy than big, chunky knits on a cold fall day. The bigger the better!

Add a pumpkin spice latte and I’m ready to go!

EMBELLISHMENTS

I  love the embellished collars trend this season and just purchased my first one! There’s so many different styles from sequins to studs and spikes. You can dress them up with a pair of leather leggings or a skirt or play it casual with a pair of skinnies.

Love this jacket! Two trends in one (leather + studs)

PEPLUM

Named the most wearable trend of the spring season, it’s no wonder it made its way to fall. Great for most body types, it can help to hide your belly, but ifyou’re going to wear it keep it tight. The extra fabric can both help you and hurt you if the fit isn’t right. Leave the accessories at home for a simple, pulled together look. Don’t limit yourself to just dresses and skirts. Pants go great with a nice peplum top too!
