Marchesa for JCP!

26 Feb

I love all these high end designer/department store collabs, and the new Georgina Chapman “Pearl” line for JCPenny does not disappoint! Georgina Chapman is the face behind haute couture line Marchesa, and also the wife of Harvey Weinstein (you know, the one who produced Silver Linings Playbook.) With almost all of the capsule collection priced under $200, this is the perfect place to find a sweet cocktail dress for that upcoming wedding or formal! Here are my top picks from the release:

These lace scalloped shorts are just $50!

This adorable LBD is business in the front but party in the back with a deep V and even a bow! $70.

I love this delicate pink number with the statement-making one shoulder rosettes. This would be a perfect choice for a spring wedding! $70.

I’m loving the retro vibe of this cap-sleeve number. Conservative and edgy all at once! $110.

And last but certainly not least, I’m loving this long organza dress. I have no idea what sort of occassion it’s appropriate for, but the delicate rosettes are darling! $250.

Will you be shopping the Georgina Chapman Pearl for JCP line? What are your favorite pieces? Are you excited about any of the other great designer collabs going on right now?

Oscar Dresses= Nude + Sparkle

11 Mar

Okay so I realize my commentary on Oscar dresses is a bit delayed. But, in my defense, I’m just now starting to truly appreciate some of the trends I saw walk down the red carpet. I should preface this by saying: I LOVE THE OSCARS. As a double major in theatre performance and film and television business, you can probably understand why my passion for the Academy Awards might border on full-on obsession. I had my ballot printed, my bingo marker, my popcorn, and my movie candy in hand and at the ready. While there’s not enough time in the day for me to ramble on about my opinions on who won and lost, (actually you should probably be thankful that unlike my boyfriend and roommates you all have been spared that diatribe…) I feel like this would definitely be an appropriate venue to discuss another favorite element of this awards show: The dresses.

By far my favorite trend I noticed were the light metallics and delicate nudes. Here are some photos I will definitely be using for inspiration this spring and summer. I love how simple yet glamorous this combo is!
