Dakota Johnson x Vogue

With 50 Shades of Grey being released next month on Valentine’s Day, it’s not exactly a shocker that Dakota Johnson is Vogue’s February cover girl. The more I see the ads for this movie, the more I get excited for it despite having never read any of the books. I mean I didn’t think too highly of the books to begin with, but all of my girlfriends loved it and couldn’t get enough. The movie will do for me.

It’s funny actually though because this is Dakota’s first huge breakout role. The last thing I even remember her in was The Five-Year Engagement so I’m kind of excited to see how she does with Anastasia. Click the cut for more gorgeous looks from this spread:

House of DVF Returns for 2nd Season

It seems like Brittany Hampton was just announced as DVF’s newest brand ambassador yesterday, but already, it looks like the fashion designer is on her way to find her second brand ambassador and hosting the second season of her show on E! once again. Initially, I didn’t think that I would enjoy this reality show as much as I would, but from the very first episode I was hooked. I think it was impossible for me to miss an episode of it every Sunday so I always had to make sure I was home to catch it. What I loved the most? That the audience gets an inside look at what it’s really like to be in the fashion industry and that these girls aren’t perfect. In fact, there’s something wrong with all of them as they all have flaws and that there isn’t a clear winner. Diane surprised me the most! You never know who she’s going to send home and how she’s going to send them home including inviting a girl into her car with her and telling her the bad news while Diane herself, is on her way to another event. Ruthless. I’ve since followed Brittany on Instagram just to get a glimpse of what she’s been up to her in her job and already she’s been busy at work styling, making appearances, and traveling to DVF store locations across the country.

Sounds like the gig is just as awesome as it sounds! Andddd we’re jealous.

Golden Globes 2015 Red Carpet Arrivals

Dakota Johnson in Chanel Haute Couture

On Golden Globe night, I had a very difficult decision to make. I could either watch the award show or grab dinner with some friends and watch Selma. In the end, I chose to let the show go, but only because I was able to watch the red carpet and felt like I got what I needed. Within the first 30 minutes of the E! Live Red Carpet show, I wasn’t impressed with any of the looks, but as the program went on, I felt like I had something positive to say about nearly every look. This morning, we’re kicking things off with Dakota Johnson. I never read 50 Shades of Grey, but now that I’ve been seeing more ads, I’m becoming much more curious about the film. I love that she chose this gown because she looks fantastic in it, but if I could change anything about this look, I would’ve wanted her to go completely sleek with her hair just to make it look like she didn’t walk straight out of the movie trailer we’ve been seeing for the past month.

Wedding Mondays

Every Sunday, I spend a small chunk of my day catching up on the wedding videos from the week so that I have something for you on Monday. Prior to any video watching though, I met up with a friend this morning for brunch – a friend of mine who just happens to be on the road to getting engaged. And wow, I couldn’t be happier for her! There was never any doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t end up together and I think the reason why everyone already feels like this is the right thing for them is because we kind of already consider them married. During our chat we must’ve covered everything under the sun – her relationship, my relationships, what it means to settle, and how so many people can be the same age, but be at varying stages in their lives. At one point, she looked at me and just said, “I can’t wait for you to have what we have. You deserve it.” Andddd what happened next was that my eyes welled up and I cried, “I want that too!” Sometimes we forget that we’re in public places, but the best friends to have are the ones that will talk to you about anything  – no matter where you are. I’m pretty lucky to have her.

So long story short, watching wedding videos today was a little bit more emotionally charged than usual. I was hooked on Leah and Mikey’s wedding the minute I heard the song. I hadn’t heard it before, but sometimes when you know, you know. I had to keep watching. I had to finish this video and I just knew that there was no part of it that was going to disappoint me.

First off, I love videos by Flora + Fauna. Secondly, how gorgeous is this J. Mendel gown? I am really hoping you all love this video as much as I do! For the full wedding feature, view it here at Green Wedding Shoes.

Proud Owner:

What person doesn’t love to start out the year with a brand new spankin’ wardrobe?! Not only was “dressing better” one of my resolutions this year, it was also just dressing smarter. I wanted to really invest in long-lasting pieces that I knew I could wear over and over again and with other pieces that I already love. That means not succumbing to trends that are going to go away in a season and making sure that when I buy a piece I really love it. Over the holidays, I went on a little splurge at one of my favorite stores – Aritzia. I already own so much from them, but for the past couple of weeks they have been having a massive sale and naturally we had to take advantage of it. In fact, I’ve already been wearing a new piece from them every day this week and I’m bummed that I didn’t get to document it – but my new clothes aren’t going anywhere so they’ll be another opportunity for this.

I kicked off this past Monday with my new Babaton Dexter Pant. I knew that this was going to be something that I was hunting for in the new year so when I went to Aritzia I picked out a couple of black pants in similar styles. This one was actually picked out for me by a woman working at the store and granted it was the most expensive pair…but it was by far, the best pair. I love the way that I feel in these. Completely comfortable and ready to do anything. The elastic waist band was exactly what I was looking for because I didn’t want to struggle with a drawstring (too casual) and buttons and a clasp (too complicated.) When I wear these pants, I can just put them on and go. I paired these with a black sleeveless Madewell blouse and my Vince Camuto heels. It was fancy, but not too fancy. We satisfied the “I, at least, look put together on a Monday” look.

Our favorite Seattle singer Hollis Wong-Wear was recently styled for a shoot with Nordstrom wearing some of the most amazing pieces. There was no way we couldn’t share this. These looks were shot for New Year’s Eve so we’re a little late to the game, but we don’t see any problem with wearing these outfits outside of the holiday either.

Favorites of 2014

Favorite Style Icon: Lily Aldridge

Lily is a style icon both on the runway and on the red carpet. This year, we really got to see her show up at a lot of events dressed to perfection. She was featured in our “Snaps for a Snapshots” several times in 2014 so even by the numbers alone, she beats everyone else. We’re looking forward to seeing more of her in 2015 and someday taking over the head angel slot when Adriana and Alessandra retire.

Runner up: Jamie Chung
