Award Season Blues

It’s officially award season, which always kinda just sneaks in on me because… uh its also NFL Playoffs!  Which will always rank higher in my book, and, let’s be honest, getting the recaps the day after is just as good as watching the actual award shows filled with a million commercial breaks.  However, the Golden Globes from last night had me feeling blue for missing it, mainly because of all the amazing blue fashion!

Word On Golden Globes Blues

Word On Golden Globes Blues

Blue is my favorite color, which is probably why they were my fav looks from the evening.  GaGa looked so old Hollywood in her periwinkle.  Camilla Belle was a personal favorite and just loving the more teal hues on Amy Adams and Gemma Chan.  Let’s not leave out the beauty!  Camilla’s green eye, Gemma’s red lip, Lady GaGa’s hair and Lupita’s cobalt blue mascara!  I mean even those Fiji girls looked stunning in blue!

 

The Globes also had me dreaming of things all a little more glam.  I’ve been pretty comfy cozy casual lately with being a homebody over Christmas vacation and during these winter storms.  Avon has this glam jewelry collection launching Tuesday Jan 8th which I just kinda glanced over.  Now I’m kinda mega digging that blue set and maybe some glam earrings to work into my winter sweaters outfit.  How fun would these be if you do an Oscar’s viewing party!?  Plus they all launch at buy one get one 50% off… NEED.  I saw those Cluster Earrings on Heather, totally convinced me I need them.

On a vacation I could pack this one dress and get 3 different looks.  The Change Your Ways Dress is a convertible dress with a cotton tube top and a satin printed bottom which you can wear the tube at full length for a midi dress, fold it in half for a mini dress or wear as a skirt.  The gorgeous swirl and abstract palm leaf pattern instantly calls thoughts of shimmering waters of Saint Barts.

To finish the look I used my new favorite go-to beauty items the mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets.  (I reviewed them here!).  The more subdued sunwashed shades of the mark. Island Eyes allowed me to create a blue eye look that wasn’t too bold for day.  Pair it with my favorite pink lipstick, Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Pink Renewal ($9 last seen here) I had a pretty look that instantly put me in a vacation mood!
