Fashion Obssessed?

Ok, so it is one of my best friends' birthday tomorrow. She invited me and a bunch of our friends to go to dinner at Firebird's tomorrow night. As soon as I told her I would love to go my immediate thought was "hmmm what will I wear?" I asked some of my friends what they were wearing just so I could see how dressy everyone was going to be and they told me they had not even thought about it. This starteling news left me in awe. Do other people really not plan out what they are going to wear, I know I do as soon as I learn I am going somewhere. Is this normal or is fashion REALLY REALLY all I live, sleep, dream, and think? All I know is I love clothes and style and cannot believe some people do not care about it at all. Do you guys find yourself in the same situation? any ideas what to wear, I think it's going to be pretty casual?

Spring '09 Trends I am wearing!

Black on White Prints
Your basic black and white got re-vamped! Worn together, the colors look effortlessly chic and definately NOT boring. Oscar de la Renta displayed this trend at his show! I usually accessorize with a bright colored handbag while wearing this trend! It adds a nice pop of color, try hot pink or bright yellow!

When I was a child my mother allowed me to dress myself on Fridays. Usually my outfits consisted of mix-match patterns. Luckily, the trend is in season! Designers such as my all time favorite, Michael Kors, put patterns together in unexpected ways! The trick to wearing this trend is to stay cohesive when it comes to the colors.

Wearing pastels just screams "Spring" the only problem is they can have the tendancy to wash people out. So when I wear pastels I try to accent with a brighter shade of the same color. Just like Isaac Mizrahi did in his Spring '09 collection. I also wear a brighter color blush and lip gloss than usual so I don't look so pale.

Presidential Fashion

First Lady Michelle Obama has quickly become a fashion icon. Many compare her to the late Jackie Kennedy Onasis. Her are just a few pictures of the First Lady while she was in Europe with President Obama.

The First Lady is wearing an ivory tulle tweed coat and black grosgrain piping made by designer Thakoon Panichgul

Here she is pictured wearing a spring inspired crystal studded cardigan made by J.Crew.
What do you think about the First Lady's looks? Do you think she's a good represtantion of classic American style? I do, I love her classic and simplistic looks. She always looks wonderful!

ACM Awards

This past Sunday the 44th Annual ACM awards were held in Las Vegas. All of country music's hottest stars were there. Here are a few pics...
Taylor Swift walks the carpet in a gorgeous red gown. I love the one sholder and the length. She normally goes for shorter dresses, but I think this one makes her look more a great way!
Carrie Underwood here at the ACM awards, looking beautiful in a very pale pink gown. Carrie is also sporting the one sholder trend!
Kellie Pickler, a fellow North Carolinian like myself, was rocking gold at the ACM awards. I really like the gown it had a mermaid vibe to me with the scales and the shape and style of the dress. I think she looked glamorous!

And for the highlight of the night...
Carrie Underwood wore an emaculant crimson gown while preforming her hit song "I Told You So." The dress took over half the stage! I like the color, but I thought it was completely to large!
What do YOU think about the dresses??

I recently just purchased the "possibilities" cardigan from Anthropology, and love it! You can wear it 6 different ways, it adds a new twist to a classic piece. I got it in Ivory for Spring, and have recieved many compliments on it. They have it in Ivory, Purple, Black, and sky. I like to wear it crossed in front like pictured below!
