Best Dressed on the 2014 Oscar Red Carpet

I’m usually pretty critical when it comes to the red carpet. However, I have to say that this year was definitely an exception. There were so many incredible looks, it’s honestly hard to choose a favorite! From Lupita’s flowing Prada gown, to Cate’s nude jeweled number, this year’s red carpet offered up a lot of fashion eye candy.

Take a look at who made my Best Dressed on the 2014 Oscar Red Carpet!

Lupita Nyong’o: You could almost hear the world swoon when Lupita arrived on the red carpet wearing this dreamy Prada gown. There is nothing quite like a confident woman in an amazing dress, and Lupita truly embodied that essence on Oscar night. Not only did she go home with the gold, but she also was instantly on the top of everyone’s best dressed list!

Charlize Theron: Charlize is the perfect picture of a modern day goddess in this black Dior gown with Harry Winston jewels. I just love the deep-V neckline and sheer mermaid skirt. This look is just the right mix of sexy sophistication. Black has never looked so chic!

Cate Blanchett: Oh, how I adore Ms. Blanchett! Not only did she win Best Actress, but she looked every bit of the Hollywood Royalty that is while doing it. I love this breathtaking Armani Privé gown, mostly because of the nude color and the sheer cap sleeves. Her hair was simple, yet elegant and I thought the earrings were the perfect accessory choice.

Jennifer Lawrence: Jlaw does it again! First off, I love the simplicity of this Dior gown with peplum detail. I also love how the bright color of the gown compliments her fair skin. Though I have to say, I wasn’t a huge fan of her necklace, only because she did a similar look last year. But overall, I thought Jennifer looked amaze!

Kate Hudson: This was another one of my favorites! Kate looked super sexy in this ivory Versace dress. I love everything about this look, from the deep-V to the caplet. Well done Katie!

Amy Adams: Last, but not least, we have Miss Amy Adams. What’s not to love about this navy Gucci dress with Tiffany’s jewels? This tuxedo inspired dress is chic, modern, and fits her like a glove. Amy looks simply glamorous!

How to Dress Like Zooey Deschanel

What’s not to love about Zooney D.? She’s funny, charming, and oh, so adorable. This A-list funny girl has a style all her own and always looks put together. I love the military-style jacket she paired with high-waisted denim for a day of shopping. Zooey kept her accessories simple with a gold belt and Turquoise studs, which looks modern and fresh. Take a cue from this Style-Setter and keep dress up your favorite jeans with a tailored blazer and fun jewelry!

What to Wear to a Superbowl Party

After a super successful day of shopping with clients, I sat down at my Mac  and noticed that Facebook and Twitter were ablaze with one thing – the Super Bowl. Though I may not be a football fanatic, I have been invited to quite a few Super Bowl parties in my day. You want to look cute, but still be comfortable at the same time (bring on the Lays potato chips!). I’ve put together three stylish outfit ideas that you can wear to any Super Bowl party.

{ How cute is this graphic tee? I love it because it’s comfortable, yet still makes a statement. I’ve paired these light washed jeans, t-shirt and black leather jacket with a Chanel bag to add a little luxury to the look. This outfit will work perfectly for a house party or viewing at the pub. }

{ The green color of this dress is super on trend for the season and is also very figure flattering. I choose leopard flats and a statement handbag to pull the look together. This outfit would work perfectly  for a Super Bowl party at a hotel or lounge. Very football chic! }

{ This look is part preppy, part hipster. The army green jeans are super versatile and can be worn a lot of different ways. I’ve paired them with a classic stripped top and colorful boyfriend cardigan. Don’t be afraid to mix brown and black accessories and remember that colors don’t always have to match,but simply compliment each other. }

What to Wear to a Job Interview

Hi Sophie Mae!

I have a major job interview coming up and have no idea what to wear! I know I am super qualified for the job, but I feel stressed because I don’t know how to dress. Can you give me a few ideas that will make me look professional, but also show off my personal style?

 

Dear Woman of the World,

 

First of all, congrats on your interview! Whenever I am advising my clients on what to wear for a interview, I always like to get more information on what the job description entails. Once I know a little more about the desired position, I can accurately advise on wardrobe options. For instance, if you are going for a job as an art director, you will dress completely different than if you are trying to snag a position as a corporate lawyer. Remember  dressing for the job you want and not the job you currently have, is the key to success when dressing for an interview. With this in mind,  I’ve put together a few outfit ideas for you to consider when dressing for a job interview. 

Best of luck!

Interview Outfits

 

 

The Marketing Maven: When you’re in a creative field like marketing, you can get away with adding a little edge to your look. I’ve selected the outfit above because it’s sharp and modern, but still professional. Making sure that the items you choose fit properly is my number one tip when dressing for your dream job. No one will take you seriously in poorly fitted items. In contrast, when your items are well-tailored, you will always look great! I love this red draped blouse because it’s the color of confidence and it’s artsy, yet polished at the same time. I’ve included the black blazer to complete the look because it’s pulls the whole look together.

 

 

Interview Dress Options

 

The Sales Genius: I love a dress with  structure for an interview because it’s feminine, yet powerful at the same time. When you’re in a field like sales, showing off your womanly assets is not always a bad thing. However, keeping it professional is key. The color of this dress is muted, but still on trend for the season. I’ve paired it with tights and a classic flat because it’s fashion forward, while practical.

 

 

Interview Outfit Ideas
The Executive: When you’re going for what I call a “big girl job” like an executive position, dressing for success is no longer a cliche. The look above looks like you mean business, but is also approachable. I’ve chosen pretty traditional pieces that incorporate unique details. For instance, this classic fitted sweater is instantly updated with the jeweled collar and this black and grey pencil skirt is a new version of an old favorite. Having a statement handbag is also a must for anyone climbing the corporate ladder. This Hermes bag might be pricy, but you would be surprised at the impression it can make!
