A Strange Painting

I bought this dress about a year ago. I was a little skeptical about the dress at first, I thought it was too bold and I wouldn't be able to pull it off. However it is now one of my favorite dresses.

Academy Awards 2010

I always watch the Academy Awards mainly to see what actresses wear to this event. It is a night they get to wear their glamorous gowns on the red carpet. These were my favorite dresses of the night.
I thought Demi Moore looked absolutely stunning with this dress. I loved the way it was nicely structured on the top and how it softly falls in beautiful ruffles below the waist.

I thought Anna Kendrick looked very whimsical. Some people were commenting about the color or her dress not suiting her because it was very similar to her skin tone but I thought it was very pretty. I loved the way the dress fell with a lot of movement. Personally I thought she looked gorgeous from her hair all the way down to her shoes.

The red wine color dress by Donna Karen made the stunning actress Penelope Cruz stand out. There is something about that color that just intrigues me. She looked very elegant.

The Notebook - Rachel McAdams

I love vintage inspired dresses. One of my favorite decades is the 1940s. When I saw The Notebook, I fell in love with the way Rachel McAdams dressed. I especially loved the way she dressed in the beginning of the movie. I thought it was very cute, playful, simple, and feminine. That is one of my favorite types of styles, when something can look very feminine, but also be able to look playful, simple and fun. That is probably one of the reason why I love vintage inspired clothing, it reminds me of old, playful, simple times :)

How can I start this of without sounding completely crazy, well I'm not sure I can.
I am obsessed with bows. I love bow headbands, bow clips,hats with bows, bow necklaces, shirts with bows, etc. Basically if it has some type of bow on it, I will most likely find it adorable.

Since I find bows really cute, I occasionally make bows here and there. This was probably one of the first bow accesories I made.

I love this bow necklace. I bought it in Hot Topic

...And this was one of the first bow necklace's I made.

1940's Fashion

I admire fashion from the 1940's for its feminine dresses and pinned up hair. Here are a couple of patterns, pictures, and 40's inspired dresses I found.
