So the Oscars happened last night. YAY!!! Oh wait, except every time I get excited about the Oscars, I apparently forget what a snooze-fest it can be. It got way slow in the middle there.

Chris Rock was hilarious as always, the presenters were as dull and drugged-looking as I've come to expect, and yes, I'm very glad Leo finally got his Oscar (and maybe the Internet will shut up about it now). BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART...

The Red Carpet.

Oh, the glorious Red Carpet and all its glory!

Except this year?


I've had a very difficult time putting together my list of best and worst dressed, especially since I am such an Expert In Fashion*, because frankly? Most of the looks I saw last night were boooooorrrriiiiiing. I wish people weren't so afraid of being on the worst-dressed list that they stop taking risks. Plus, how the hell does Georgina Chapman at Marchesa have the time to design all of these swoon-worthy (and, in some cases, incredibly bizarre) dresses? Does she do anything else?

ANYWAY. Click the jump to find out what I thought, in all of my immense wisdom**, about the looks that bedazzled the Oscars 2016 Red Carpet!

A Year in Review, Abridged

Hello lovelies!

Well, I sure did drop all the balls here, didn't I? I had them, and then I dropped them. Turns guys are still reading! So THANK YOU!!!

Visiting this old blog and reading some of the comments that have been left in my absence has been awe-inspiring, and I am so thrilled that people are still getting some use of my silly little tutorials even a year or more later. And it has been almost a FULL YEAR since the last time I posted, and let me tell you - I couldn't be more sorry.

I promise I'm not dead - I have just been really, REALLY busy, and frankly, the blog fell to the bottom of my to-do list in a hurry. That's my bad, and I am going to make it up to you. But first, in case anybody is curious about what I've been up to, creatively and otherwise, I want to give you a quick year in review post.
