actress_inspired_kelseyKelsey and I have a love of all things fashion and are so excited to share it with you all. This week we are talking about actress inspired style! So fun. It's amazing what you can do with pinterest, the Oscars, and your own "style" to come up with some amazing outfits!



oscars_2014_red_carpet_arrivals_-_lupita_nyongoIt's been a couple weeks since the Academy Awards took place here in Los Angeles, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the tabloids and every fashion blog or magazine by the way they are still obsessing over some of the top looks at the 2014 Oscars.

The real winner of the night was quite clearly Lupita Nyong'o who took home the Oscar for Best Actress. She was a vision of beauty in her ice blue Prada gown. I was so in love with the cut of this gown as well as the color, everything about this look was really so elegant and uplifting! Everyone needs a little big of pretty in their life, which is why I put together my own version of Lupita's A+ look.

Lets face it, not many of us will be invited onto the red carpet any time soon, but we can get in the mood for spring with our own Lupita inspired look. Maxi skirts are so easy to come by now. They are girly and most of all they are comfortable! Paired with a simple tank or t-shirt and you have a look that is fit for a star.


actress_insprired_melissaI have to agree that she looked amazing! And now I've seen people with this dress (or similar too) on the red carpet, run ways, and now in bridal magazines as the look for Spring and Summer wedding gowns.

However, I'm with you Kelsey, we can make this glam look into something fun and flirty with a maxi and tank. The best part is you can have this look for less than a Prada dress, and dress it up or down with the right accessories.

Obviously, I am going to throw a scarf on with this look just because that's my signature piece, but you can also add a long necklace, layered necklaces, or leave a bear neck and add attention to your wrists and ears like Lupita did with some beautiful gold pieces.

Inspired Jewelry:

Kelsey and I pulled together two different looks using the same maxi skirt -- inspired byLupita's ice blue Prada gown. We've also put together a collection of beautiful gold jewelry that will pop with any outfit!
