Oscars 2011

I've heard mixed reactions to this year's Academy Awards, but I know I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so, I thought I would share my favorite fashions of the night. 

I loved James Franco in all his usual happiness and I thought this Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown that Anne Hathaway wore at the beginning of the show was very beautiful.

And how could you not love Hailee Steinfeld in her Marchesa dress? So cute!

I really loved how Hilary Swank's Gucci Premiere gown flowed, especially as she walked out on stage.

Mandy Moore's Monique Lhuillier gown was just stunning. I love the sparkles and soft tulle.

I think Mila Kunis was a crowd favorite in Elie Saab Haute Couture. I love the lace detailing on this gown.

And I just had to add it was fun to see Russel Brand with his mom as his date and I rather liked his blue striped shirt.

Did you watch the Oscars? What did you think?


DIY Inspiration

Below are four projects that two roommates made for their apartment using only a drill and barely any money at all. You may have seen this if you follow Apartment Therapy, but I was so impressed by this I had to share!

 The first project was this table made from reclaimed wood. All they used was church floor joists and legs from Ikea.

 This pipe fitting bookshelves was made from some gas pipe from Home Depot and pine planks from a lumber yard, stained.

 This modern sculpture is made from posterboard from Staples and cost only $5!

This credenza made into a DJ booth was a Craigslist find. Originally, it was very beat up, but after using sandpaper, wood filler, and stain, it looks great!

All of these projects prove that you can have an expensive look for very cheap!


Ruche Spring

Who else is ready for Spring?! I am certainly ready to be a little bit warmer and these pictures from the Ruche Spring 2011 lookbook make me even more excited for the coming season. 
These images are absolutely gorgeous!!
