Today I saw an awesome comment on one of my blog posts from a girl with a beautiful blog named Amy!

I really don't like to over think bad things in the past because my goal is to live without regrets and I believe things happen for a reason.

Hmm that's tough, probably a red pickup truck or a motorcycle! 

10. What is your top wish?
My top wish is everyone struggling with depression, eating disorders, self harm issues, family or friend problems or anything of the sort becomes better and is happy with themselves and their life <3

2013 Golden Globes: Top 5 Best and Worst Dressed

I wasn't very impressed this year when looking at the 2013 Golden Globe red carpet dresses. Unfortunately I found a lot more dresses that I didn't like, than the ones I did like. Usually I don't do a worst dressed list, but I do a top 10 best dressed. The problem is I couldn't find 10 dresses that I actually really liked, so I'm doing top 5 best dressed and top 5 worst dresses. 

Top 5 best dressed: 
Jenifer Lawrence in Dior Couture
1. Jenifer Lawrence in Dior Couture - I really love this dress on Jenifer! I think the form of the dress really fits her, and I love the waist part of the dress and the belt. Looks beautiful and she was the best dressed on the runway for sure :)

Anne Hathaway in Chanel Couture
2. Anne Hathaway in Chanel Couture - I really love this dress on Anne, I think the simplistic but elegant look really works well for her. It also looks very good on her! By the way, for those of you who have not seen Les Miserables, it was a really great movie and she did a beautiful job!

Louise Roe
3. Louise Roe - This is a dress I could find myself wearing. I think it looks really great on her, and I love the lace and the slit on the side. The shoes also look really nice with the outfit. One thing I would chance is a different clutch, I don't really think her current one matches the dress.

Jessica Alba in Christian Dior 
4. Jessica Alba in Christian Dior - One reason I picked this dress to be on the top 5 list is because of the bottom. The collection of fabric at the bottom is really beautiful and I've always wanted to wear a dress like this! Her necklace really pulls the outfit together and makes it so elegant.

Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen
5. Nicole Kidman in Alexander McQueen - I really like the form of this dress and the middle part. The bottom of the dress flows really well. 

Top 5 WORST dressed (eeeekkk): 

Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein 
1. Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein - Honestly, there's nothing I like about this dress, except maybe the color? if it was on a completely different dress. Its way to loose and open on the top, and it just looks like it doesn't fit right. Not a fan.

Alyssa Milano 
2. Alyssa Milano - Okay, first off, this color is horrendous. Also, the dress just looks like it was poorly made, with the belt being weirdly shaped. I do like her earrings though :)


Emily Mortimer in Jenny Packham
3. Emily Mortimer in Jenny Packham - This dress is too much of that one fabric/shiny material. It also doesn't look like it fits right, and has a very weird tight middle area. I do like the clutch though :)

Adele in Burberry
4. Adele in Burberry - This dress looks like its from a different century, and sometimes that can work, but not this time.

Sienna Miller in Erdem
5. Sienna Miller in Erdem - The flowers on this really aren't working. I like the form of the skirt so maybe if they look the flowers off that it would look decent, but I don't like the design or form of the top.

What did you think of the dresses this year at the 2013 Golden Globes?

Dsquared2 Spring/Summer 2013 Show

I want to start off by saying I absolutely love Dsquared2, their clothes are always so young, chic, and beautiful. I wrote a post about their Fall/Winter 2012/2013 campaign back in June (read and watch the campaign here), and I have to say that they keep impressing me more and more each time a collection comes out.


 The way they started off the show immediately caught my eye; having Cara Delevingne start it off by standing in the background as photographers circled her was really a great decision. It lures the watchers in and grabs their attention. 

Here are a few of my favorite outfits from the show: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The next two looks I've included because they're very big beautiful dresses and I really liked the way they flowed while on the runway.

 

Tell me what you think! Are you a fan of Dsquared2's newest collection?

Black Spike Studded High Heel Boots

I love these shoes so much! I've seen them in many small boutiques near my house and I've been so tempted to buy them. I was looking online today at these different styles of the shoe:


Black Punk Spike Studded Chunky High Heel Lace Up Ankle Booties Boots (Buy Here for 29.99)

Black-Snake Punk Spike Studded Chunky Heel Hidden Platform Ankle Boots (Buy here for 29.99)

Black-Suede Punk Spike Studded Women Chunky Heel Platform Ankle Boots (Buy here for 29.99)

One reason I really like these shoes is because they stick out! Also, I think there are so many great outfits you could wear with these shoes! Here are a few that I really liked: 

Picture from http://www.ioffer.com
Wearing these shoes with a pair of black leggings or jeans would really make the spike suds on the heel pop! Its a very cute and edgy look that I'm going to try for sure.

This look is pretty similar to the one above, but with black leather pants. I've always wanted a pair of black leather pants and I know that as soon as I get those and these heels I'll definitely wear them together. 

Another way is to wear it with a pair of colored jeans, I think look is very edgy and I'm a huge fan!

Actress Bai Ling
Another way you can wear these shoes is with a cute dress, I absolutely love this combination!

What do you think of these shoes? Which ones are your favorite? Let me know! <3
