I have been focusing on my work-wardrobe the past several months and the casual portion of my closet has suffered. I just found a new website, www.needsupply.com, that has reignited my latent desire for casual-wear and am currently lusting over these shoes:
The atmosphere at my internship is fairly lax, but even still these shoes would not be acceptable. So, I would pair them with skirts or denim for weekend outings. The wedge heels makes walking comfortable and stable and I am still not over studs on accessories. Speaking of accessories:
I think I need this ring. $12! It is adjustable and perfect for throwing on for after work cocktails or weekend outings.
I really shouldn't browse shopping sites after 2 glasses of wine...

Collections like these are the reason that Karl Lagerfeld has endured as a fixture in the fashion world for so long. Not only is he the master of reinvention, nixing the gold buttons and dark colors that Chanel is known for, but every look was breathtaking. The whole collection was ethereal and practically glowing. A few select favorites:

The SAG Awards was round 2 of the runway spectacle. These four were my favorites. Diane Kruger bounced back nicely from that the Golden Globes gown, which I thought to be a rare fashion misstep on her part. She looks glamorous and stunning, as do...
Mademoiselle Marion Cotillard
Breast Cancer Survivor Christina Applegate
...and the ageless Kyra Sedgwick.
These gorgeous women all picked incredibly flattering gowns that, while exquisite, did not overpower them. I can't wait to see have they navigate the next red carpet event!

Anna Dello Russo has killer style, and killer legs which she is usually showing off in something short. She looks no less fantastic covered up in capris.She and her assistants somehow manage to look coordinated, but not 'matchy.' I'm coveting Anna's shoes, even though they are girlier than most of my wardrobe, and am lusting over the entire outfit on the right. They look effortlessly stylish, without falling prey to looking overdone. Jealous.

The Golden Globes marks the beginning of awards season! This means that there will be red carpets galore in the upcoming months, with plenty of opportunities to drool over fab frocks. I know I am a couple days behind on the Golden Globes, but there were too many lovely dresses to ignore!
I have been watching Damages Season 1, so Rose Byrne is high on my radar and she certainly stood out in the sea of pinky-beige with this stunning gown by Lanvin. I love the detailing at the waist.
Ginnifer Goodwin's dress wowed on the red carpet, as well, and I love that she went with a short dress. The royal blue of her dress and her flawless makeup made her eyes stand out.
At first glance, I was not so sure about Marion Cotillard's gown. But, the more I looked, the more I liked. In particular, the color is fabulous and her hair and makeup are perfection!
She looks like a Grecian goddess with perfectly tousled locks. The geometric patterns on the bodice are incredibly figure flattering, although she really doesn't need help in that area, anyway!
Chloe Sevigny is perpetually able to pull-off gowns that are more fashion-forward than crowd-pleasers. This gown has just enough color not to blend into her skin and she made a wise choice with the sleek hair that doesn't compete with the folds of the dress.
All in all it was a glamorous night. I wish I had an occasion that called for a fancy dress, but with school and my internship, I am on a jeans and pencil skirt regimen. Not nearly as exciting. Who were your favorites?
