I Guess We Clean Up Nicely 

Helly darling! This post is a little bit different from my typical blog post. I love when bloggers give me a little glimpse into their lives, so I figured I’d do the same for you guys. The other week my college put on a little shindig for English major, members of our college magazine and newspaper, and the online publication Her Campus. Since I’m an English major and part of Her Campus I decided to go with my lovely friends.


Sadly, the only details I have on dresses are my friend Courtney’s dress and my dress (pictured above). Courtney’s dress and shoes were found at Nordstrom Rack a day prior to this event. I’m obsessed with the beautiful floral pattern on her dress.

My bright red dress was found at Urban Outfitters in September. Sadly they do not sell it anymore. It has this funky strappy back that I feel head over heels for. I might be super annoying for even saying that because I don’t actually have a picture of that detail. The necklace is a J.Crew Factory classic. It is currently on sale for $24.50 so buy it while it is on sale! I’m also obsessed with this similar necklace that is also on sale. Last but not least, my adorable, eye-catching shoes are from Off Broadway. I ended up getting a size up (I’m normally a 7.5 but I got an 8) because they were a little snug. You’ll be seeing these shoes more as the senior events progress (I have a senior formal next week! Eeek. How time flies).

I hope you have a great rest of  your day! What is your favorite semi-formal look?

As always,

Oscars 2015


Black and white

Lupita Nyong’o: stunning as always. I have not found one bad picture of her!

Kelly Osbourne: Perfect amount of lace and poof.

Zendaya: I love the shape of this dress.


Anna Faris: looks like a princess in this cinderella dress. I just wish her hair was slightly darker.

Jennifer Hudson: knows how to work that color. That dress fits her like a glove.

Reese Witherspoon: I have no words it’s just too perfect.


Zoe Saldana: She had a baby in November and looks like that?! Jesus.

Jennifer Aniston: Can I just be you?

Jennifer Lopez: I love this dress and I hate it at the same time. Maybe if it was a little less poof I would like it more.


Rosamund Pike: This reminds me of Jessica Rabbit in a classier way. I love the lace and the clinched in waist. Breathtaking.

Anna Kendrick: Perfect color and silhouette.

Giuliana Rancic: Don’t know who you are, but your dress was my favorite.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum: Best looking couple on the red carpet hands down.

Least FavoritesWhat

Keria Knightley:  The words, color, and random flowers just confused me. She looks like she is Wendy and tinker bell at the same time.

Scarlett Johansson: The necklace reminds me of seaweed. I love the color scheme I’m just not digging the enormous seaweed necklace and the slicked back hair.

Emma Stone: I love you but that color is not for you. BEAUTIFUL dress just needs to be in a different color. The dress is wearing her, not her wearing the dress.


Margot Robbie: It hurts that she would dress so plainly for the Oscars. She’s one of the most beautiful people in Hollywood, but her gown just made me sad.

Lady Gaga: You’re fabulous, but I’m really not digging this. The sleeves and the gloves remind me of Cruella Deville… not the type of look I personally would go for on the red carpet. However, she’s Lady Gaga she can do whatever she wants! I honestly wish she could have worn last years dress because I’m still in love with it.

What was your favorite and least favorite?

As always,
