The Oscars: Photoshop Fashion

I wasn't really blown away by anyone at this Oscars this year, but did have suggestions for changes to several of the are my recommendations, using Photoshop magic:

First off, Beyonce. Girl, just because your mama made it, doesn't mean you HAVE to wear it. If she's going to wear this style, at least tone it down with a solid color. That gold lame is just too 1985 for me. I also gave her some more eye makeup cause she looks too washed out.

I kinda got crazy with Amy Adams. Maybe it was the necklace, I just had to get rid of it. As my BFF said, "Looks like someone threw up rubies and diamonds on her neck." And that black edging just didn't do it for me. I didn't want to do just plain red, so I played with some black at the top. I could see where Miley was going with her dress, but thought the shell belt took it too far. I took the shell off, removed some of the sequins and think it looks much better. I think if it wasn't as "big" it would have worked better for her. I did like it that she took a chance because this is a very different looking dress compared to what we've seen lately.Now Heidi, we know you have a gorgeous body and great fashion sense, but this dress was a little too right angle for me. I softened it a bit and tried to bring down the slit a little. I also put her hair up - didn't like that casual approach with this dress.
I also found this great montage on MSNBC that I love. It shows everyone that wore the lighter colors to the Oscars side by side. I think my ultimate fave of the night was Anne Hathaway. I'd love to give her a tan, but I think we're so used to seeing her without one, it would probably look strange.

Who was your favorite?


  1. Sooooo true with Beyonce...

  2. I love how you can do this!

    My favorite dress was Kate Winslet by far, but she always does the same thing.

    I liked Natalie Portman too.

  3. Wow..that's awesome!! You had some really great ideas!

    I didn't get to see the show...but after looking at the pics I have seen...I'm partial to Natalie Portman myself.

  4. Natalie, Kate, Anne, and Marissa!!

  5. I loved Miley's annd Marisas!! I loved the lighter colors people wore!

  6. i love taraji p. henson's dress and anne hathaway's dress. i always loved natalie portman's. jen aniston looked amazing, too.

  7. I love your photoshop versions! I also love Ann Hathaway! She always looks great!

  8. Alicia Keyes. And you should go into fashion design with your eye, love what you added and took away! glad you didn't fall all over "A", I for one am tired of everything about her.

  9. I thought Anne Hathaway looked amazing but I HATED Beyonces dress!!! your photo shopping makes it waaaaay better!

  10. So I don't watch the shows but I always catch your photoshops.

    Mother of all things good, what was Beyonce thinking? Not flattering at all!

  11. you should be a stylist!! my favorite of the night was natalie portman. sooo gorgeous & elegant--just like the oscars should be

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
