Friday Night Inspo

full body night out suede dress with choker

Nothing says *night out* quite like a choker and high boots! I’m sure by now you are well-versed in the fact that chokers are having a HUGE moment. Small, thick, ribbon, leather… just about everyone has worn one in some capacity.

I really like the way a choker looks with a high pony. This choker isn’t actually a choker, it’s a neck scarf from the Who What Wear x Target collection. That’s the beauty of a choker, you can make one with just about anything lying around your house! I still haven’t bitten the bullet and purchased one of those tattoo choker necklaces yet… I used to rock those from Claire’s in grade school! read more

My Oscar Diary

oscars 5

Sunday was surreal! I’ve had the privilege of hosting at the Oscars 3 times now, and each year it gets better and better! This year, I co-hosted ABC’s On the Red Carpet at the Oscars fashion stream for 2 hours with Tina Malave from ABC7. The broadcast flew by, and we also had a few live spots on the TV show which was really cool! If you guys were able to catch the show, let me know in the comments.

I put together a vlog for you guys on my youtube channel to show you all just HOW much time and energy it takes to get ready for the Oscars. Take a look and let me know what you think! Big shout out to everyone who helped me get glam for the big day. Special thanks to e.l.f. cosmetics, Jean Dousset, and Monique Lhuiller! read more
