Star Studded SAG Awards

I'm baaaack!  I wrote this post on Monday and as soon as I went to publish it, my dear friends at AT&T decided to pull the chord on my Internet and house phone.  Poor Mister spent 3 hours on the phone with command central at AT&T on Monday night and then another 2 hours last night.  My phone is back but the Internet is still down.  The Mister attached some kind of doo-hickey to my computer so that I could get back to my high powered, pressure cooker job of blogging.

Anyway, I watched the red carpet and SAG Awards on Sunday night.  I must be honest, I did not watch the entire awards show because my beloved Downton was on and I didn't want to miss one second of it!

So here goes with some of my thoughts on the fashion.

The Modern Family kids helping to roll out the red carpet.  Where's Lilly? (Hopefully taking some acting lessons).

Kelly Osborne

I'm really getting tired of the purple hair, Kelly.

Giuliana Rancic

Love the color and extremely flattering to all 80 lbs. of her.

Lea Michele
Great color and dress.  

Kerry Washington
Tres elegant.  Love her show, too.

Julianne Moore - SAG
What a mess!  Ill-fitting and homely dress.  She looked sooo much better at the Globes. Sista said the official "sag" award goes to Julianne.


Amy and Tina

Pure raw unadulterated talent dressed in elegant black times two. 

Helen Hunt
Looked great.  Fabulous figure and if you want to get a closer look at that figure, go and see her in The Sessions

Anne Hathaway - SAG

Liked the dress better at the Globes and her hair better at SAG.


Frieda Pinto
This woman is so beautiful.  Love the hot pink.

January Jones
The dress was not one of my favorites.  The hair was way too severe.  Sometimes, I think January goes out of her way to look unattractive.

Jennifer Lawrence - SAG

Jennifer, the new "it" girl, looked great at both functions.  January should hire her stylist.

Great color and cut but weird top. Sista said it looked like she had two bird feeders on the front of her dress.

Jessica Chastain - SAG

I liked the SAG dress and hair better than the Globes, by far.

Speaking of odd looking tops...

Julianna Margulies- SAG

SAG dress and hair wins again!

This dress looks like it would be uncomfortable and itchy.

Michelle Dockery - SAG

I don't know how Lady Mary's grandmum would feel about the side boob shot.  

Granny would love this one though.

Bradley Cooper
Looked dashing!  He speaks fluent French,too.  Oooh la la!  Do you think those are contacts?

Justin Timberlake
JT always looks so dapper!

Suit or tux...
pure perfection!

Have a great Thursday - treat yourself like a movie star!

Bow Tie Eye Candy

This post is in honor of my Mister who discovered the bow tie a few months ago, and hasn't been seen without one since.  Whenever we are shopping in a store, I know exactly where to find him - knee deep in bow ties.
Without further adieu, I offer you some photos of some very famous lovers of the almighty bow tie. 

A very distinguished bow tie wearer, Sir Winston Churchill.  Hopefully, the Mister won't follow suit and add the cigar to his repertoire.

Yes, you did Pee Wee, and there are a few other things you are famous for, as well.

Bad boy/good boy image bow tie wearer.

Nobody does it better.

A very scientific way of wearing the bow tie.

An extremely talented bow tie guy.

A very presidential bow tie devotee.

A very temperamental bow tie wearer.

A very Kardashian way of sporting a bow tie.

"Wearing a bow tie is a statement.  Almost an act of defiance."

Hope you had a great weekend.

Becoming Blazers

I adore blazers.  Always have.  I think it may trace back to my spending 12 years of my life in a Catholic school uniform.  
I love seeing  a woman in a well-tailored blazer.  I always whisper to myself, "Self, why can't you look that put together?"  Self usually rolls her eyes, shakes her head, and gives a heavy sigh.

Enough with the fanfare... on with the blazers...

Love the color.

Lands End

Ralph Lauren

Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brothers
In my next life I want to be her.

And  the cutest model of all...

My dear friend, Little Debbie.  Here she is after book club.  I was so excited to see her in this adorable jacket I begged her to let me take a picture.  This lady is always "dressed to the nines" and is as sweet inside as she is outside.

Hope you're having a blazin' weekend!!!
