SAG Awards 2013

I don’t know about you but I was rather unimpressed with the SAG Awards red carpet last night. Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of pretty dresses around but when it comes to a big award show like that, I expect more than pretty dresses, I expect to be wowed.
Anyway, despite the lack of wow factor for me, I do have my top 5 of pretty dresses ready for you, and here they are:



I appreciate Julie Bowen switching it up a bit, and going for the not-so-usual leather gown in this Johanna Johnson number, of which I also like the shoulders detail.



I am a big fan of Elie Saab’s designs, and this one on Nina Dobrev is quite pretty. I love the color and the fact that it has sleeves, but definitely what makes this dress is the oh-so-trendy sheer paneling.



I really enjoyed watching Anne Hathaway’s Giambattista Valli Haute Couture design on TV during the actual award show, but I was disappointed to see that this dress didn’t translate very well in pictures. So, I decided to add a picture of it from the actual runway show so you can appreciate it better. I know it’s a little out there with all the sheer fabric, beading and big puffy skirt, which might not make it a favorite for many, but I think the designer did a good job of somehow making it all work.



And speaking of lady in red (in reference to this post), Jessica Chastain perfectly proves my point that a little red dress and classic accessories make for a timeless look that will never ever go out of style. She also proves that redheads can kick the old myth of having to avoid red clothing to the curb, and embrace how fabulous they can look in this hue. However, it was ultimately the old Hollywood glamour and sexiness of this Alexander McQueen creation that got it a spot on my list.



And here you have it, my absolute favorite of the night! And I’m as surprised as you are that my number one spot didn’t belong to any of Hollywood’s favorite fashionistas, but Jane Krakowski (and her stylist!) did a superb job picking this Kaufmanfranco design. I love the unexpected sequined color, the deep V neckline, the detail at the waist, and how it was accesorized to perfection. From head to toe, she looks beyond beautiful, she looks simply delectable (peach-orange sherbet anyone?).

Look of the Day: Lady in Red

Today’s look is pretty much a timeless classic: a little red dress minimally accessorized… Yup, that’s definitely never going out of style. You simply can’t go wrong with a look like this. Plus there’s something about a red dress that just boosts self-confidence, I mean, I don’t know about you but I just feel sexy, feminine and pretty wearing one.
I wore this one last night to a wedding. I added simple nude pumps and clutch, dangling yet simple earrings, a couple delicate bracelets and I was good to go.
Now, what were you guys up to on Saturday night? And most importantly, what did you wear?
Hoping you’re having a fabulous Sunday!






Dress: Evan Picone from TJ Maxx - Shoes: Aldo
Clutch: The Limited - Earrings: Anthropologie

El look de hoy es uno de esos clásicos que desafía al tiempo: un vestidito rojo y accesorios mínimos… Sip, definitivamente algo que nunca pasará de moda. Simplemente no hay pierde con un look como éste. Además hay algo acerca de un vestido rojo que le da un boost a la autoestima, digo, no sé ustedes pero yo si me siento sexy, femenina y bonita cuando me pongo uno.
Éste lo usé anoche para asistir a una boda. Sólo agregué zapatos y bolsa nude, uno aretes colgantes sencillos, un par de pulseritas delicadas, y listo!
Ahora cuéntenme, qué andaban haciendo ustedes el sábado en la noche? Y sobretodo, qué se pusieron?
Espero que estén teniendo un fabuloso domingo!

Había olvidado compartirles un pequeño pedazo de información que tal vez les sirva si viven en Hermosillo. Cuando tuve la sesión de fotos en Catedral y la plaza bicentenario (de la cual pueden ver los resultados aquí y aquí), una chava que andaba paseando por ahí se nos acercó para felicitarnos por el outfit y preguntar detalles acerca de él (que si era una sesión para una revista, de donde era la ropa que traia puesta, los accesorios, etc). Platicando con ella resultó que uno de sus hobbies era hacer pulseritas para vender, y nos mostró algunas que traía con ella. A mi me eeeencantaron, sobretodo porque ultimamente traigo obsesión por pulseritas delgaditas y delicadas, y no pude resistir comprarle un par. Por supuesto, ya que en la plática había salido que las fotos eran para mi blog, y que siempre publico donde compro cada pieza que uso en mis outfits, le prometí compartir su información con ustedes.
Las pulseritas cuestan $35 pesos y hay de todos colores. Yo escogí una plateada y una dorada, y las amo. Los dejo con la foto de las pulseritas y la info de su creadora.
Que tengan un lindisimo fin de semana!

I had forgotten to share a little piece of information that may come in handy for you if you happen to live in my hometown, Hermosillo, México. When I had the photoshoot there back in early January (you can see those photos here and here), a girl that was walking around the main plaza came up to those to compliment my outfit and ask details about it. In our conversation with her it turned out that one of her hobbies was making and sellong these cute little handmade braceletes, and she showed us a few that she had with her. I looooved them, especially because lately I’ve been obsessing over thin delicate bracelets, and I couldn’t help buying a couple of them from her. Of course, also in our conversation it had come up that the photos we were shooting were for my blog, and that I always share the details on where I buy everything I wear, I promised her I would share her information with you guys.
The bracelets are under $2 dollars (that’s right! A total steal) and she has them in every color. I went for a silver one and a gold one, and I love them. Here I leave you with a picture of the little bracelets, and the info of their creator.
Have a nice weekend!
