Peixoto Nissi Pom Pom Dress – $102
This is an eclectic mix of items! If I’m being honest, I’ve been curating this list since August and every time I missed the time in which I could post it, I decided to just hold onto it until the next month. Since starting my new job, I indulged in my version of “self care” a little bit harder than the norm. I was convinced that fall was coming (not false) and that I needed a new sweater every week. As much as I love shopping, it isn’t sustainable to make a new purchase weekly so as of very recently I’m cutting myself off. Tommy tried to solicit me to go to Nordstrom Rack tomorrow for a big sale and I even said no to that.

Madelaine Petsch in Prada
I’m so old that I completely forgot that this was happening tonight and that the award show has changed its name to “MTV Movie and Television Awards.” We’re not sure when that happened, but we do appreciate the inclusivity for television series. Next up? All of our favorite looks and nothing about the award show itself because we’re not watching it this year.

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.”

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

So it’s not the most fashionable night out of the year (that’s the Met Gala!) but the CFDA is a close second! This is a post full of amazing looks. We don’t need to say anymore.

This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!

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.

It’s the eve of the season premiere of Mad Men’s last season so it only seemed fitting for us to feature the actress on the show who we find to be a style icon. That is none other than Kiernan Shipka. Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of the show. I’ve watched a few episodes with Kevin and friends always ask me if I want to watch an episode with them, but to be honest I’ve never really gotten into it. I can’t believe how long this television series has been airing though. Fans of the show have really watched Kiernan grow up into the lovely teenager she is today and her style has blossomed so we’re very excited to be showcasing it in this post. Just to throw it back we thought we’d intro this post with a photo of a young Kiernan. She’s only 15, but she’s got so much ahead of her!
