Academy awards inspired look

You didn’t think I would forget, did you? I am wrapping up my award season inspired looks today! For this last one, I went with a bit of a splurge on the dress and thought summer wedding. Although the dress looks white (which is usually a no at a wedding), it has a black underlay that makes it look much less bride-esque.

So here are my item collection connections!

I loved Kerry Washington’s deep purple dress and plum lip color, so I found the Essie nail polish that was pretty close.

There was a trend of monochromatic make-up and pale lips, so I picked the NARS lip color that was similar to Cate Blanchett’s.

There was a trend of not only white dresses, but also lots of lace, which is why I was drawn to the Shoshanna dress.

Based on Jennifer Lawrence’s clutch and statement ring was how I came to my two choices for clutch and ring here.

Lupita Nyong’o and Sandra Bullock’s add a bit of edge, and I found some terrific ones from H&M.

And finally, I didn’t see a lot of the red-carpet shoes, so I looked for a cute sandal that would pull in both the black and white in the dress. This DSW one was a good fit, and under 50 dollars!
