Is it because it's green and sparkly that my mind went to genie? Not that I'm complaining. Emma Stone is the favourite to win Oscar tomorrow night. And I think she'll play if safe styles. This is her way of having some fun with fashion before the big night.    Full Article

To me the dress is not the conversation here. It's her hair. A mop of curls on top of her head. And I'm not mad at it. But...I do wish she'd pulled it tight, climbed all the hair flat off her forehead into the curls. To me it's a fresher look. The relaxed puffiness of the way it's styled here feels dated. Full Article

Major fashion porn is expected from Ruth Negga on Sunday at the Oscars. And you can see why. Because she's not going to be boring. This dress is not boring. Wearing a bow across the shoulders, playing with shapes, is not boring. It's a willingness to try, to experiment with style, and, therefore, stand out. Full Article

The feathered skirt on a gown has been done to death. What about putting the feathers across the top? And shaped like a leaf. You like? I think I like. I feel like I'd like it more with a skirt of a different colour though?  Full Article

The dress at the premiere last night wasn’t working for me. But this jumpsuit at the photocall today is perfect. The cutouts are balanced by the high collar. The pants fit her just right. And the shoe choice is excellent – a pointed pump with the toe cut straight across. So flattering. Full Article

I should like this dress more than I do. It’s caped. Which is always one of my favourite features. But … there’s something about the  material here. Is it too… stiff? What’s bothering me is the placement of the darts around her breasts. I hate breast darts. Full Article

Hey Duana, My husband and I are expecting our first child, a boy, the first week in March. And we had a name picked out we both loved - Rex. It was familiar without being popular, I think it is cute for a little boy and handsome for an adult. I like the sound of it, and its succinctness. It has loose ties to my home state (Louisiana, via Mardi Gras), and I had even gotten over the dog thing. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Back row to the front

Hayley Posted by Hayley at February 22, 2017 20:49:14 February 22, 2017 20:49:14

Exercising can be intimidating, especially these days when many group classes seem to be more about a popularity contest then a workout. I recently experienced a workout where I was forced to have to sit at the back of the class because I was new and I had to earn my way to the front. Seems a bit counterintuitive if you ask me. Full Article
