milly makes me weak

i have always been a huge fan of the brand milly. unfortunately, my wallet has never been able to keep up with the high dollar amount attached to the pricetags on all the fabulous silk blouses and dresses that make me knees weak.

not to my surprise, i am in love with milly's new line of jewelry. the sea foam green, black and gold used in her pieces are pure perfection. and, the prices are not as high as i anticipated....well for some of the pieces at least.

milly links earrings-$130

camilla teardrops earrings-$115

layered chain bracelet-$110

camilla teardrops faceted drop necklace-$245

pop cluster black necklace-$325

underneath it all

finding a good tank to wear underneath cardigans, vests, sweaters etc. is something i am always on the search for. quality and durability are 2 musts that i look for because once i find a good tank, i wear it to death! these are also great for transition weather because once it gets warmer you can wear them solo. here are some keepers i found.

gap, henley tank-$49.50

patterson j kincaid, back zip tank-$78

three dots, tiger print tank-$98

free people, luminescent tank-$38

gemma, brites silk tank-$130

bcbgmaxazria, croc burnout tee-$48

the good and the bad

wow. the oscars were pretty fantastic last night. the fashion, the awards, and the really really cute boys who got all dressed up. with all the great dresses on that red carpet last night, i narrowed down my top favorites and biggest disappointments of the night.

first, the disappointments...

sarah jessica parker, chanel
it pains me to put her on my bad list, especially wearing chanel. but the whole fabric around the neck thing and detailing on the back just did not do it for me.

diane kruger, chanel
wow, chanel misses it again. love her, love the color combo. really dislike the whole ensemble.

now, for my favs

elizabeth banks, versace
i love everything about this look. the sparkly headband, flowing gown, muted gray, makeup, hair, its all perfection.

miley cyrus, jenny packham
while topping the majority of many lists for bad gowns, i in fact love this dress. it is a little too tight for her, but i love the concept, color, and silhouette.

rachel mcadams, elie saab
if i could be any actress in hollywood, i would probably pick her. i love her. and this look could not be any more perfect.

anna kendrick, elie saab
elie saab did an amazing job this year and 2 of her dresses made my favorites list. anna looks amazing in this pinky nude grecian inspired dress. it is so understated, that it has made a huge statement. this is my #1 pick of the night!
