Emmy's Fashion Part Deux

Fashion Yes! :

Jessalyn Gilsig looks simple but classic.

Fashion Hell no:

Wtf was January Jones thinking when she picked this dress? Her boobs look like they are covered in pinwheels from the county fair. She also looks like some kind of tropical blue bird. Not okay.

Kristen Wiig's dress was horrendous. Maybe, and I mean maaaaaybe if she lost those feathered puffs on her shoulders it would look better but its doubtful.

I can see where the concept of Anna Paquin's dress would make sense but the execution was a fail. She looks like an armored bird. What is with bad dresses having bird themes?

Fashion on the go

Just got myself the iPhone 4 and as I was redownloading the apps from my old iPhone I came across this app. Everyday they post the shoe of the day. It's perfect for shoe-aholics like me or people who need a little fashion break in the middle of the day. One of my favorite apps!

A Star Studded Sighting

Lindsay Lohan is back and let's ignore the lack of bra (you should always wear a bra!) and focus on her amazing Current/Elliott shorts. If you haven't figured out that I LOVE studs yet than this should give you the idea. If they weren't $318 I would seriously consider getting myself a pair. Maybe I can find a way to stud my own jean shorts?

Spotted Again

Looking for a cheap way to add a little leopard to your outfit? These Topshop clips are only $15 and they are a super cute accessory to add some spice to your outfit!

DVF not the first to redesign hospital gowns

We recently posted about how Diane von Furstenberg has redesigned the the hospital gown for a hospital in Cleveland but guess what we found! Jazzy Johnnys has also recreated the hospital gown. Theirs however looks more like a sari than a hospital gown. A little pricey but definitely a good alternative to the butt bearing hospital gowns we are used to.

Best/Worst Dressed at the Emmys

Most of the photos for this years Emmy Awards aren't up yet so I have gone through the ones that are up so far and have picked my favorites and my least favorites. There will be more to come tomorrow once everyone has uploaded all of there photos. I have seen a ton of sequins on these dresses. I've also noticed a lot of really terrible hair dos.

My favorites so far:

Worst dressed:

Now I haven't seen a photo of Lo's full outfit but I'm already afraid from just looking at her hair. A usually very stylish Lo looks like she got in a fight with her hair spray and teasing comb.

More to come!

Team America

I first laughed when I saw these shorts on Topshop but then I started thinking... with a baggy white tee and some worn out combat boots these could actually be cute. If you have a hipster kind of style you should try rocking these. Go USA!

Good trend/bad trend?

This photo isn't that recent (a few weeks ago) but I have been seeing a lot of this bogus colored lipstick. It was cool in some of the runway shows but I'm really not sure how I feel about people actually wearing it in public. I mean Ke$ha looks like she just sucked down a blue snow cone. I think this is a little out of my comfort zone as far as every day fashion goes. What do you think?

Celebrity Outfit of the Week

Jessica Alba looked amazing at the premiere for Machete in Los Angeles. I love everything about her outfit. The dress is fabulous with the over exaggerated shoulders and zig zag sequins (we all know by now I love sequins and studs!). Then the shoes add a fierce element to the dress to complete the outfit. She gets a big win for this one!

Ladies in Lace

A few different ideas for looking lovely in lace.

Fashion Mistake

So this pant by Paige is supposed to be their new hit as far as cargos and army styles go but I personally think they are horrible. It looks like a splatter paint fight. Going to have to give this one a no go. Sorry guys!

Ready to wear...

Fall is still about two months away but I'm itching to get back into my sweaters and boots. Right now I wish I was wearing:

Sweater: Topshop
Jeans: Flying Monkey
Boots: Frye
Clutch: Topshop

Favorite boots for fall

I first started to look for fall boots that I love on shopbop's website but I couldn't even make it off the website because I loved so many that they had. I might as well title this blog post my favorite boots from shopbop. There are lots of studs and lots of distressed boots as well as a twist on the cowboy boot. This is what is showing for fall so take a look at the boots below and find one that works for you!

Pour La Victoire Myles Studded Boot

Golden Goose New Charlye Wrinkled Pull on Boot

Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Wren Suede Clog Boots

Ash Clash Shod Shaft Boots - I have seen a lot of distressed boots for fall so either buy a pair or wear a pair of already worn in ones.

Loeffler Randall Lowe Suede Boots

Proenza Schouler Outside Zip Suede Boots

Boutique 9 Freeze Long Cuff Suede Booties

Fergie Ledger Boot

A special post for Jazz

THIS is how you should wear your new sequin jacket!

Celebrity Fail

The usually well dressed Whitney Port was snapped doing some yoga wearing some extremely hideous workout pants. Most everyone I know would not want to draw more attention to their bottom and these pants just add a weird extra unflattering layer to hers. For wearing these pants we have to give Whitney a wardrobe fail.

Lauren Conrad sells style advice

Lauren Conrad is coming out with another book but this time instead of a teen-filled drama, Conrad has decided to write a book about how to style yourself. If you love her style, then you should love this book which has exclusives on how to dress exactly like her. It hits shelves on Oct. 5th. Will you be buying this book?

Diane Von Furstenberg does...

Hospital gowns?!? DVF has recently redesigned the hospital gown for the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Finally a hospital gown that covers your butt! DVF tweeted "We are very proud of our hospital gowns for the Cleveland Clinic..we worked hard at it and we hope it will make patients happier ! DVF" I'm sure they will be. They're wearing DVF!

Infomercial Fail

I was watching TV last night and was flipping through the channels when this infomercial came on. At first I thought it was some SNL prank commercial but it's actually a real thing. "Booty Pop" seems to be underwear with butt pads in them to make you look more bootylicious. Thinking this still has to be a joke? I feel the same way. I mean really, this cannot be real. Thought I would share this ridiculous new product. Major FAIL!

Hot shoes walkin!

Ashley Greene was spotted wearing this studded babies recently. I love the classic motorcycle boot feel but with the studs updating the look for this season. In love!

Double Denim

I am seeing double denim everywhere! Here are a few different ways to wear it:

This week dying for...

House of Harlow's Maddie Boot. I saw these at a boutique yesterday and I haven't been able to get them off of my mind. It may be hard to tell from this photo but the pattern on the boot is actually all beaded. They run at $225 and if they were any less I would throw out my Minnetonka's and spoil myself with a pair of these. LOVE!

Hot mess of the week

I'm such a bad blogger! I apologize for taking so many days off you guys! Working overtime leaves little time for me to blog. I promise I will try to do better. In all blog seriousness, I really need to confess that Britney Spears has to have the worst sense of style I have ever seen. I hate to say it, I don't want to be mean, but come on, you have millions of dollars and THIS is what you're wearing? At least wear a bra and spare the rest of us. Hot mess walking!
