2017 Met Gala Red Carpet

I wanted so badly to get home early Monday evening so that I could have this post ready in time for Tuesday morning as a recap, but of course, we stayed at work a little bit later that night. The good thing about writing this post now though is that I feel like I’m not under a time crunch and I can really take my time with it.

Bee Shaffer is not exactly “in” the fashion world, but her mother is Anna Wintour and every year she continues to stun. This was one of my favorite looks from the evening. Here she is wearing Alexander McQueen with her fiance Francesco Carrozzini. #powercouple

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Kiernan Shipka

Wearing: Rosie Assoulin

Where: Wednesday screening of “The Blackcoat’s Daughter” in New York City

So no, florals for spring isn’t necessarily groundbreaking, but they are when you’re wearing them the way Kiernan is. I love that this isn’t just a floral printed dress and instead the florals are full immersed into the shape of this dress. Don’t even get us started on those straps. We love it.

2017 Oscars After Parties

Elizabeth Banks in Elie Saab (this is so unbelievably stunning)

Nobody loves a red carpet more than I do. (Well maybe Ryan and Giuliana) but I don’t mess around on award show days and Sunday afternoons with the red carpet have a special reservation in my day planner. However, while everyone is anticipating THE red carpet, I’m also getting ready for my second wave – the red carpet of the after parties. This is where some of the most daring looks of the night come out. We’ve been doing this post after the award shows red carpet for years so if you’ve been with us awhile, this is nothing new to you. However, if you are new – welcome.

Oscars 2017 Red Carpet

Viola Davis in Armani Prive

WOW what an award show. We’re likely going to have a chat about all of the things that went on this evening, but for now – let’s just get to all of the red carpet details. There was a lot of fringe, a lot of neutral color tones and “Hollywood glam.” I’ll admit, when I watched the red carpet special, there weren’t many looks that blew me away right off the bat, but as the night went on, looks started to grow on me and we were able to figure out our top 5!

Grammys Red Carpet 2017

Rihanna in Armani Prive

This year, we missed both the Grammy awards and the red carpet. We’ve been on a pretty good streak so far with awards shows, but today I wanted to take the day off and instead, I went to go see “50 Shades Darker” with a couple of my girlfriends. At dinner later on, the show happened to be airing at the restaurant we were at so I caught a few glimpses, but we’re likely going to catch up on all the notable performances and speeches in the next day or two. As always, Grammy fashion is sometimes the award show that produces the most talked about outfits so with that, here are our favorites along with ones that we feel we have to highlight just because!

2017 amFAR Gala

Diane Kruger in Versace

To kick off New York Fashion Week, models and celebrities attended the annual amFAR Gala. To celebrate its 19th year, the event honored both Scarlett Johansson and Versace for their support in their organization, but also their continued efforts in the fight against AIDS. Here are some of our favorite looks from the most stylish at the event:

Golden Globe Awards 2017

Viola Davis in Michael Kors Collection

I spent a great deal of time today glued to my TV. Those hours of the red carpet and the actual award show aren’t hours that I can get back. My two takeaways? Well, I didn’t watch enough good movies in the last year and everyone that tried to pull off a long-sleeved dress this year on the red carpet failed. I did have a couple of favorite looks though and they came from those that surprised me! I always like doing this post the night of the award show so that people can have something to scroll through when morning comes around so with that here are my favorite looks as well as those that missed the mark.

I’m actually tired of this trend with dresses being one shouldered and have been for awhile, however, I love this color on Viola and she looks stunning. I also like that she decided to simplify both her and makeup so that the dress could just do its thing. The head-scratching moment of the night for this dress was when Ryan Seacrest asked her what color her dress was while everyone at home was like “um, can’t you tell what color this is?”

Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Vera Wang

Very rarely am I ever impressed by anything SJP wears. She looks like a marshmallow in this gown and I’m not happy with the way she styled her hair. The only way this look could redeem itself is if it were sleeveless and her hair were let down.

President Obama Throws A Music Festival

We’ll never have another President as cool as Barack Obama. Earlier this summer, President Obama shared with everyone his summer playlist and not only was it impressive and overlapping with songs that we also listen to – he is now announcing that he’ll be throwing a festival on Monday, October 3rd. The music festival, which will be held at the White House will be called “South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action” – collaborating with SXSW and the American Film Institute.

The festival will feature panel discussions, live musicial performances, and a student film festival. The panels will focus on influencers and community leaders who are doing good in the world.

A lineup for the music festival hasn’t been announced yet, but we have no doubts that this festival won’t include an all-star lineup. In fact, we’re pretty sure that he can get just about anyone to play this so…

Also, if you think that you belong at this event or no someone that should be present, you can actually nominate a guest here.

2016 MTV Video Music Awards

Ariana Grande wearing Alexander Wang

I wasn’t paying too much attention to her performance, but was it just me or did she seem completely out of breath? Why was she biking so hard? Did she lip-sync at all? We’ve got a lot of questions.

Out on the Town: 8/25

Does this feel like sort of a blast from the past? We used to write Out on the Town posts all the time when we were living in Seattle and we kind of miss it sometimes. To be honest, on most weekdays, I’m completely exhausted from the work day and I can barely muster up the energy to sit through traffic and drive an hour up to the city for dinner or drinks – but that’s when things are most happenin’! The event we’re sharing today is actually…not in San Francisco and back in Seattle! This showed up on my Facebook feed because one of my friends was attending and I thought it was such a great idea that I would share it with all of my Seattle readers in case you, too, wanted to attend. If I were still back home, you know I totally would!

This coming Thursday, Capitol Cider is hosting a “Drink and Draw Night” which apparently happens on the 4th Thursday of every month! You’ll join others in sketching a live model while using art supplies provided by Artist & Craftsman. For all of the details, click here for the Facebook event and join! because what else are you going to do on a Thursday night?

Warby Parker in Seattle x2

Screen Shot 2016-08-20 at 1.54.48 PM

Warby Parker just opened up their 2nd location in Seattle and they are celebrating all day today! I wish I were home for it because from what I’ve seen of the photos already, the shop looks amazing. Nestled in the beautiful University Village Shopping Center, Warby Parker’s shop is also housing a stunning mural by Geoff McFetridge. Pictured below is just 1 of 2 murals that are done. I’ve always loved Warby Parker shops and how each store location is different and embodies its own personality and style. This team is kind of amazing.
