Friday's Fancies: Oscar Outfit

This week has flown by for me. Being gone last Thursday through this past Tuesday makes the week short with only three days at home. Today we are off to Kentucky. It should be an interesting trip with a few stories to come back and tell. Hopefully we will be back in time to watch the 84th Academy Awards show on Sunday night. I always like getting to see who who takes a little man home to put on a shelf.

Friday's Fancies is all about Hollywood Glam today. What fun to pick out an outfit for the Oscars! Be sure to check some of the amazing blogs that link up with Alison at Long Distance Loving.

When it comes to being in the spotlight, I think some of the best dressed women are the ones who have a classically regal Hollywood look.

Dress: The one and only Oscar de la Renta. The one-shoulder is sexy, yet modest and the color brings out the green in my eyes.
Shoes: Miu Miu gold heels are not shockingly bold, but add a bit of fun to the outfit with their glitter.
Clutch: Not wanting to take a way from the dress or shoes, the Anya Hindmarch glitter clutch matches the shimmer in the shoes.  
Jewelry: I chose gold elegant gold jewelry and earrings with a pop of pink in them. The bracelet with the fringe drapes around the wrist, so I'm not sure what both together would actually look like.  
Hair: The hair needs to be pulled back and in a bun. This one is a little bit more modern, with a fun twist.
Makeup: A pretty pop of pink on the lips with the eyes being the focal point add the nice finishing touch to the whole look.

What do you think? I'm not one to make any bold or daring moves on the red carpet. Throughout the years, Catherine Zeta-Jones has been one of my favorites when it comes to glamming it up. I think she is a true beauty. That's all I've got for you today, lovelies. Have a great weekend!
