my oscar picks…

I have to admit that it was difficult to choose my top 5 gowns this year. There were so many beautiful choices. But, I am a simplistic minimalist at heart so here are my top 5. Scarlett Johansson in Atelier Versace, Zoe Saldana in Versace, Cate Blanchett in Margiela by John Galliano, Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent, and Sienna Miller in Peter Copping for Oscar de la Renta.

the thing about style…

 What I love about style is that we all own it. We all have our personal take on it and it’s all good. It transcends trends, money, and above all age. I know and have known people whose style and grace will never fade, even after they’re gone…My nonna Teresa was one of them. At 101 just before she died, she would still get her hair done and take the time to look good everyday. She didn’t do it for anyone but herself. She loved how she looked and wasn’t shy about it. This photo reminds me of her. Hair always perfect, jewellery on, outfit just right…she was a rock star <3
