2018 Met Gala Red Carpet

Before I left the office tonight, my friend and coworker, Courtney, remarked that tonight’s Met Gala was the equivalent of a Super Bowl to anyone else. She wasn’t wrong! I put in the extra hours of work this weekend so that I could free up my Monday evening to work on crafting this post. Before I came home, I also went out for a glass of wine with a friend so that I could a) appreciate every look for the piece of art that is and b) to let my true opinions for every outfit shine through! Throughout the day in all my meetings, I was closely watching the coverage seeing bits and pieces here and there, but never spoiling it all for myself until I was able to digest it when I got home. I can’t imagine a better photograph to kick start this post.

This year’s 2018 exhibition was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

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!

Rihanna ft. Drake – Work

It was a tough decision, but between Beyonce and Rihanna, I had to pick one and “Work” was a much better dance jam than “Formation.” Wouldn’t you agree? Also, I just love that Rihanna and Drake keep doing songs together! Moar, please. Sandy and I listened to this three times in a row at our desks the other day.

2015 Met Gala

Anna Wintour in Chanel – she hosted the whole thang so she had to be first. 

It killed me that I couldn’t post every look and have this ready to go for you all this morning! I was so excited to see some of the looks from the Met Gala yesterday evening and then a part of me knew that I would hate some looks as well. With the theme being, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” I was concerned that there would be jabs poked at stereotypes and Asian trends that would make me cringe. Of course there were, but like all things, we have to move on and not dwell on them. In the interest of saving time (and space!) I am choosing not to include looks that I felt were in poor taste.

2014 Met Gala

I can’t believe it’s time already for the most fashionable night of the year! It’s crazy to think that a year has already gone by. I feel like I was making the 2013 post just last month. This year’s theme is White Tie and Decorations.

Of course we’re kicking things off with Queen Bey and Jay.

Rihanna – What Now

It’s a rare treat when we can get all mainstream on Yow Yow! Also, am I the only one rooting for her and Drake to be together? Cutest couple for the win.

A Study: Selfies Can Damage Relationships

I’ve never really been a huge fan of selfies. For some reason, when I find them from my friends on Facebook or Instagram, they make me feel a little bit awk. It leads me to wonder about several questions –

  • Where was my friend when they took this photo?
  • Was there anyone around when they took it and if so who was it?
  • What was running through your head when you decided to take it?
  • How many times did it take you to snap this photo until you decided it was worthy enough to be posted? (Seriously, though.)

I recently read about this study that while taking selfies can be gratifying for the person taking the selfie, it can have a huge impact on relationships you might have with your friends, family, and acquaintances on Facebook. In a study by UK researchers, they found that

“People, other than very close friends and relatives, don’t seem to relate well to those who constantly share photos of themselves,” Dr. David Houghton, a marketing lecturer at Birmingham Business School, said in a statement.

“It’s worth remembering that the information we post to our ‘friends’ on Facebook, actually gets viewed by lots of different categories of people: partners; friends; family; colleagues and acquaintances; and each group seems to take a different view of the information shared.”

With the high usage of smart phones and applications like Instagram, it’s unlikely that the trend of “selfies” will be going away any time soon. You won’t be seeing any selfies from me, but if you are doing them yourself here are a few points from the study and tips to keep in mind. Click here for the full article.
