Okay, I couldn’t resist doing a round-up of the Vanity Fair Oscar Party dresses. The frocks are usually pretty killer at the VF party so I made sure to peruse the slideshows over breakfast. These are some of my top picks. (Had to throw in a shot of Gwyneth looking fab without her cape, too.) Love, Nik

Did you ladies watch the Oscar’s tonight? (LP, I know you did!) Any red carpet faves? Here are just a couple of mine. (This roundup was hard to pick! I was torn between a number of ‘em…)
I have to say, I think Gwyneth looked even better sans cape and Emma’s giant bow grew on me more after her adorable presenting bit. But Angelina… oof. I cannot wait to see what the internet does to make her ridic leg pose into a meme, hah! Love, Nik

So, I know terrariums are hot these days. What’s next, wearable plants? Saw these planters by Colleen Jordan on Fab this AM and just had to share. (There are even little planters for your bike, hah!) Not sure I’d wear a plant around my neck, but it’s definitely a unique idea. Love, Nik

Take me on vacay right now! A-dorable. -AI

Not going to lie, I quite enjoy an excuse to throw on comfy pants, curl up on the couch and just veg out. Needless to say, I put on the Grammy’s tonight, caught up on on my RSS feeds and gawked at the celebrities and rockin’ musical performances. Here are some of my red carpet faves.
Did any of you ladies watch? (Holy moly Adele killed it! I need to see that girl in concert, stat.) Love, Nik
PS: If you missed it, Jennifer Hudson paid a nice tribute to Whitney.

Well, Punxsatawney Phil saw his shadow, so 6 more weeks of winter it is. (Although, considering it’s been a crazy-mild winter, I’ll take it!) I think a nice, comfy and light-colored outfit like this would help battle winter chills, yet still make me think of Spring at the same time. Love, Nik

Well, award season is underway and as your self-professed resident celebrity junkie on LWS (anyone else out there have a weakness like me?!) I figured I’d share some of my fashion faves from the 2012 SAG Awards. (I didn’t watch it live but I can never resist flipping through the slideshows online the next day...)
As expected, I tended to gravitate towards the simple, similar silhouettes. I guess we’ll see if I am as predictable when the Oscars roll around?! (All signs point to yes..) Love, Nik

Anybody else watch the State of the Union last night? We were all huddled around the TV in our newly-furnished office lounge and the one thing that kept screaming at me was all of the NEON I kept seeing in the audience. Anyone else notice all of the bright colored suits? Who knew congresswomen/senators/etc. were so up on the latest Spring trends?! Hah! (Though, perhaps they were just recycling them from the 90’s, who knows.) Regardless, I thought it was amusing… and slightly distracting. Love, Nik
PS: On a more serious note, what’d you think of Obama’s address?

I’ve always thought nude/blush-colored pieces were so pretty but those colors don’t exactly pair well with my pinkish pale skin tone. For that reason I usually try to avoid wearing big blocks of nude-colored pieces but try to get my fill in more subtle ways: nude pumps, nail polish, accessories, etc. (I’m actually on the hunt for some cute nude flats!) Regardless, I still adore the color palette and wish I could bring more of it to my closet! Love, Nik

I am pretty sure this nail polish with cork tops is the most adorable nail polish packaging I have ever seen. (I know we have some cork lovers on LWS so I just had to share!) Plus, it’s environmentally friendly and is free from formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. You can buy it directly from the designer, Megan Miller or at Anthropologie. Love, Nik

I woke up this morning, saw the rain on the windows and immediately wanted to roll back over and snuggle under the blankets. Like Lillie, I immediately had visions of steaming cups of tea and bowls of soup all weekend long.
Then I got to thinking about the warmest outfit I could wear today. This winter has been so mild that I’d practically forgotten how to dress in rainy SF winters. I think a giant, warm snood (they’re on clearance at J.Crew + an additional 30% off! I finally had to snatch one up.), slouchy sweater and some tall leg warmers would do the trick. I’m still on the fence about investing in some wellies, but if the rain keeps up like this, I may just have to go for it…
I also think this umbrella/coffee holder would be pretty genius (hah!), as would a soup + cracker bowl combo. And you always need a cup of tea or coffee on hand. What are your cold, rainy weather necessities, ladies? Love, Nik

Totally Loving These Earrings

I wear XXL earrings 90% of the time and that’s mainly because I have lost all of my earring backs. These are delightful. I would try to never lose the earring backs again! -AI

(Nik, I tried right-clicking, I swear.)

I have been on a total black + white + red kick lately, especially if there are stripes involved. Actually, one may even say it’s my go-to palette. I recently pushed myself outside my comfort zone and got some red pants so it looks like I’m taking it up a notch, eek! Do you ladies have a tried-and-true color palette that you tend to fall back on? Love, Nik
