Golden Globes Best and Worst Dressed

Let’s be honest – most of us fashionistas watch the awards shows just for the fashion. In fact, I rarely even watch the actual show, mostly tuning into the pre-show red carpet coverage. The Golden Globes are the official start to the awards season fashion, and I just had to name my best and worst dressed of the night.

BEST DRESSED

Best Dressed 1

It’s all about red with Jennifer Lawrence in Dior (my personal favorite of the night!), Olivia Wilde in Michael Kors Collection, and Zendaya in Marchesa.

Best Dressed 2

A perfect plunging neckline (Kirsten Dunst in Valentino Haute Couture), a vibrant caped dress (Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture), and the best beading detail (Amy Adams in Atelier Versace).

WORST DRESSED

Worst Dressed 1

Too many ruffles (Jane Fonda in Yves Saint Laurent Couture), boring and dated (Maura Tierney in Elizabeth Kennedy), and love her but the white off-the-shoulder neckline isn’t flattering (Amy Schumer in Prabal Gurung).

Worst Dressed 2

Poofy, weird sleeves (Jennifer Jason Leigh in Roland Mouret), the color is nice but the bare midriff and matching choker aren’t working (Kate Hudson in Michael Kors), and a pancake bust with Snooki hair (Katy Perry in Prada).

Who are your picks for best and worst dressed?

New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas

For most women, New Year’s Eve means sequins galore. It’s the perfect excuse to get all glammed up and wear your shiniest, sparkliest clothes and accessories. But sequins can be expensive, and who wants to spend a ton of money on a dress or outfit that can really only be worn one day a year (unless you’re the adventurous outfit type).

My solution to budget-friendly dressing is to shop your own closet! What basics do you have that could already work toward an outfit? Then add one shiny, glittery, fabulous piece (could be a shirt, shoes, necklace, clutch etc) that makes it special for New Year’s Eve. This way you’ll only be buying one new item, or you may realize you already have something that could work – sometimes it’s just putting pieces together in a new way. Here are some outfits I’ve come up with to create a New Year’s Eve outfit that’s perfectly blingy and wallet-friendly. And if you’re feeling really daring, you can even pair two of the sparkly pieces together (the gold blazer and black sequin shorts for instance). Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from SassySweet SF! We hope your day is filled with love, laughter, and lots of great food! And speaking of food, I can smell the turkey cooking right now and it smells sooo good. Since Thanksgiving also tends to be an unofficial “stuff your face with as much food as possible” holiday, I always plan my outfit accordingly. As you can see below, I found a great tunic top in festive autumn colors, and am pairing that with black leggings, black knee-high suede boots, and matching earrings. The drapey tunic paired with leggings will allow for plenty of room for the inevitable food baby that will be growing throughout the day 😉 Happy feasting!
