The Never Ending Search…

Since the summer is officially here in South Carolina I’ve been updating my wardrobe for the warmer weather. Jeans technically aren’t “summer-y,” but dammit, I want a pair of white jeans! They’re just adorable. But here are some problems I’ve run into:

  1. They’re too see through. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve gone into the dressing room so hopeful because I’ve found a pair that were the right length and cut, only to be let down because I could see my underwear in the mirror. Through the jeans. It’s ridiculous.
  2. They were too tight. I’m definitely not into loose jeans, but I’m not liking these white jeggings that are in stores. At least with jeans, even if they’re a little tight, you don’t see every single detail in your legs (at least if they’re a dark wash). White jeggings leave no secrets.
  3. I don’t look like Gwyneth Paltrow. And it’s really, really upsetting.

The Oscars: The Good, the Ridiculously Ugly, and the ones I can’t decide on

Last night I think I went a little bit insane. I love the Oscars. And the stars. And their gorgeous gowns…except Angelina. Couldn’t get over her. BUT other than that, I loved the Oscars! I won’t share any of the winners in case some of y’all haven’t seen it, but it was mostly as expected. And now I have to go see The Artist, because as expected, it did win quite a few awards.

Who were y’all’s favorite dressed? I couldn’t get over how beautiful some of the gowns were!

The Good:

Gwyneth, obvs

Ellie Kemper

Octavia Spencer

“Triple Spanx” is definitely not all to credit here. Octavia looked AMAZING.

Michelle Williams

Duh.

Maria Menounos

Penelope Cruz

She might have looked a little too princess-y for my taste, but if my dad (who was watching with us) takes time to say she looked classy, that means something, y’all.

Sandra Bullock

These photos aren’t great of the dress, but trust me when I say it was beautiful! I saw a red carpet interview with her and couldn’t get over how great she looks!

The Ridiculously Ugly:

Stacy Kiebler

Even though all I know about this girl is that she was at the latest Marchesa show and she’s George Clooney’s recent lady friend, I expected more out of her…because she went to the Marchesa show. I legit think she picked out the ugliest dress at the show.

Jennifer Lopez

No, it doesn’t look that bad in the picture, but in person (and considering the near nip slip), I just don’t like it.

Nancy O’Dell

Does this woman freak out anyone else? Just me?

Missi Pyle

The ones I can’t decide on:

Kristen Wiig

Shailene Woodley

Natalie Portman

Really? Polka dots to the Oscars? Hmm…

Viola Davis

I have undying love for Viola, but her boobs were about to pop out of her dress the whole time. That color green is really pretty on her though!

Louise Roe

Emma Stone

Meryl Streep


And one photoshopped picture for fun…Angie. Because she was literally sticking out her left leg like that the whole night.
