Stylist to the Stars

I love award season, yes I do. I felt like it was a holiday all Sunday afternoon because I was anticipating the Oscars Sunday night. I think I started watching the pre-show events around 5:00 and stayed up until the very last award had been handed out around midnight. It was really one of the more interesting Oscars I've seen lately. But enough about me, let's talk about the stars. I've taken the liberty yet again to give the stars a little of my Photoshop treatment, undoing what I perceive as fashion no-nos and showing how I would have done it had they asked me.

First up, SJP. I loved the color of the dress, typical SJP, vintage, yadda yadda. But get rid of the leash around your collar and let's take away the fake tan (which was a bit heavy around the face) and the look is much better.

Next up, Nicole Richie. I know she's all grown up now, but she doesn't need to look matronly just because she's a mommie. Add a little color to that drab frock and spice up the color on her face a bit and that chocolate bun atop her head starts to look much better, and the overall look is younger. Just shows how important color can be.

And let's not forget sweet Charlize Theron, who rarely makes fashion mishaps. Loved the color, but what in the world was she thinking, adorning her ladybugs with big swirls of fabric? Reminds me of something Madonna wore during her Blond Ambition Tour. Just take them away, slap on a couple mill of diamonds, and you've got a sleek, sexy look.

Diane Kruger tends to be a bit bold in her fashion pics, and this one was interesting to say the least. Several fashionistas have referred to it as looking like "wet toilet paper".  I personally didn't love the halter part of it, and figure if you're gonna wear toilet paper, do it like this:

And cute Carrie Mulligan, although I don't think I've ever seen your work, I do like like your style, kinda. The dress and shoes would have been great for the MTV awards, but a little too edgy for the Oscars.

                                                 Before                                          After

And I'll end off with my best dressed of the night. Loved Sandra Bullock - it was different for her, outside of her comfort zone, and I think it worked. I also loved the shot of Jesse James tearing up when she pointed at him during her speech. It was so sweet.

What do you think?


  1. I agree totally!! Glad you didn't photo shop Sandra...she looked amazing!

  2. You are a great stylist!! When my ship comes in, I'm going to offer you the job of keeping me current and stylish!! I thought SJP really looked aged, maybe too tanned and skinny is not a good look for her! I also loved Sandra's classic look! Had been waiting for your take on the fashions! Thanks for entertaining us!!

  3. Oh my goodness, fabulous! What a difference those made! Just loved the new looks!! ;)

  4. These stars should put you on their payroll. Your minor adjustments were brilliant! :) I agree with everything you said.

  5. Sandra Bullock, gorgeous!! I've never wanted to "look" like anyone else, just be a better me. But, with SB just a few months older than me and looking so much younger than me, well, all of a sudden ... Just the well-fit body please. I can make do with the rest. -- michele

  6. I love what you did!!!
    Those gals need to hire you!

  7. I love all of these edits, with the exception of Diane Kruger. I think that was just a poor choice for a dress.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
