Emmy Dress Recap.

The 2010 Emmys have come and gone but the gossip surrounding the ladies'
dresses certainly has not. So, who turned it out? One of my top picks is Glee's
Lea Michelle. She chose a strapless Oscar De Le Renta number. Navy blue looks
divine on her, and the overstated necklace is lovely. I could have used a few less
ruffles, but I'll let it fly. I also loved Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Narciso Rodriguez gown, which
was both age appropriate and still sexy. The bright green jewelry made this outfit.

Claire Danes wore an insane Armani Prive gown. I am usually
hesitant of all over sparkles, but this just oozes Hollywood glamour. Thank
God she got some sun, otherwise this color would have seriously washed her out.
No major jewelry was needed with such a sparkly dress, although she is wearing
small gold earrings. Who were your favorites? Fashion disasters?

PS: Does Susan Sarandon ever age? Killer body and gown! Va va voom!

Summer Jams.

Katy Perry's latest single, Teenage Dream, has been blasting from my car for the last few weeks. I know everybody's summer anthem has been Katy's California Gurls, but this is my summer jam. I can't get enough of it!

Just Love.

Just love. That's all.

Sprucing Things Up.

Renting can be challenging sometimes. As a renter, there is only so
much you can do to your home to spruce things up. Sometimes adding
a few new touches can make a big difference. I recently bought new lamps
(thanks, Pier 1 Imports) in an effort to jazz things up a bit.

New curtains are an easy addition to make. It's a work
in progress! New prints for the walls are next!

DIY Project.

I have needed a new dresser for awhile now. Truth be
told, it needed to be sturdy because I have a lot of clothes. Here
is the before picture after a bit of sanding. It's a perfectly fine
dresser, but a bit woodsy/plain looking for my bedroom.

It look five coats of paint. I mean, how insane is that?
I also added glass knobs. I'm very pleased with how it turned
out and it suits my bedroom decor much better.

Perfecting the Hair Bow.

Oh, you know... Just perfecting my hair bow for the Lady
Gaga concert. Up next? Actually purchasing tickets.

Update: I got tickets!

Ahoy Matey!

Andrew and I spent the night on a sailboat in Annapolis this weekend.

There was a sunset sail, which was beautiful.

It was fun learning about sailing and hearing about the Captain's voyages around
the world. Fresh breakfast on the boat the next morning didn't hurt either.

Italian Men.

Italian men could really teach American men a
thing or two about dressing themselves. That is all.

Ok, so I kinda sorta want to see this movie. I've been hearing about Burlesque for ages and the trailer has finally hit the web. Let's be honest, this has the potential to be really bad. But, it also has the potential to be really good/bad. I mean, Christina is pretty much playing herself; a regular gal with big city dreams who receives fame from wearing tranny make-up and ass-less chaps. Oh yea, and she can sing.

Hey, I'll take it.
