For Kids Only

Diane Von Furstenberg has collaborated with Gap Kids and Baby Gap to launch a new line of colorfully printed kids clothing.  This collection, which ranges from newborn to age 12, is so adorable that I just can’t take it. It is filled with jersey rompers for toddlers, a navy striped seersucker blazer and patterned little dresses, which all appear to be classic DVF.  I am so excited for its release on March 15!

Another kids product that has sent me over-the-moon is Plum Prints.  Plum Prints consolidates all of your childrens’ lovely artwork into one organized little package.  All you have to do is ship your child’s artwork off to Plum Prints and they will organize and digitize a unique book just for you.

Lastly, Aden + Anais, known for making cotton and bamboo swaddle wraps which are on everyones must-have baby gift lists, are now making crib sheets.  They come in organic and non-organic cotton and are  just as soft as their swaddle wraps.

And the award goes to…..

I loved the Oscars last night…. every glamorous and glorious second of it!  My favorite part (as always) was seeing all the lovely starlets looking their absolute best.  I think that everyone looked so beautiful, but there were some who just took my breath away.

My absolute favorite celebrity of the night was Gwyneth Paltrow.  Tom Forn is a genius! Swoon….

White was huge on the red carpet this year, I also loved Octavia Spencer in Tadashi and Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab.  They really represent true hollywood glamour.


Stacy Keibler looked stunning.  I mean, could she possibly be any more gorgeous? And her dress was just incredible.

Lots of ladies rocked metallics.  Jessica Chastain looked stunning in her black and gold Alexander McQueen dress.  Her hair and make up were beautiful and that dress was tdf.

I loved Ellie Kemper in her copper Armani Prive and Giuliana Rancic in silver Tony Ward.

It looks like our favorite (or least favorite?) Hills star, Kristin Cavallari, scored a ticket to the oscars.  She looked beautiful and is definitely rocking her pregnancy glow.

There weren’t too many total misses this year.  However, I was disappointed with Angelina Jolie.  On one hand, she is Angelina and is basically responsible for creating most fashion trends, but on the other hand, this whole look is boring.  I definitely expected more from her.

This dress is one of my favorites, but someone with a figure as beautiful as Shailene Woodley should not be so covered up especially at an event like the Oscars.  I am all for modesty, but this is just matronly.

Before the Oscars, I was really excited to see what Emma Stone was wearing, but felt that this Giambattista Valli gown was a let down.  Again, the dress is beautiful, but it just doesn’t work on Emma.  The style, color and cut overwhelm her.

Natalie Portman wore a red polka-dot vintage Christian Dior gown. What was she thinking? She is always one of my favorites, but I just.don’

Lastly, a few other beautiful ladies on the red carpet….not my favorites, but still lovely none-the-less.

Weekend Look: Head of the Charles

This weekend is the Head of the Charles Regatta, which is the world’s largest two-day rowing event right here on the Charles River in Cambridge, Mass.  I am looking forward to beautiful Fall weather and a day of fun with my girlfriends.  I plan to wear something like this great Vince Kimono wrap sweater from Barneys with a pair of jeans, leopard print flats and my favorite brown leather bag.
