What I’d Wear to the Oscar’s

If you’re like most fashionista’s, then you can’t wait for tonight’s red carpet arrivals at the award show of the season, The Academy Awards. Also known as “The Oscar’s,” this is the king of all red carpets. The only celeb I’m looking forward to is Christina Hendricks. I love how she rocks her curves! But, besides that, I always look forward to what the trend will be on the red carpet.If I was going, I’d die to represent in this Alexander McQueen Kimono Gown, but with the $8,655 price tag, it seems very unrealistic. That and it doesn’t come in…

But, I’m not and I think these would jump start my collection.Ok, I don’t know about a collection, but grabbing a few pieces here and there can really add some “oomph” to…

I know you might be thinking this sounds silly, but unless you own a pair you wouldn’t understand.Many pairs of leggings have come into my life and they’ve been OK.
