As I said in yesterday´s post, I am a very lucky girl and I also have a life filled with eccentricities and laughter, above all. The vest was not purchased with me in mind, it was originally purchased by my GBF to wear in a charity drag show! Of course there are no plans in his near future to sport the vest so it was passed along to me during my brief stint in NYC.
I actually am obsessed with the vest and it fits long, almost like a coat-dress on me, it´s utterly sassy and fierce and I fit right into all the old ladies in Madrid who wear fur even when it´s hot outside.
And of course…how many girls can say they are wearing previously- owned- by- tranny- clothes?
I was thrilled this year to be able to view the Oscars, in English, in the USA! It was great to be able to see it all go down in the motherland. See below for fashion highlights. (PS Was James Franco stoned the whole time…?)
My number one favorite look this year was the Elie Saab worn by Mila Kunis…it´s trendy, classy, fashion forward, elegant, graceful, and sexy all at the same time, which is pretty hard to be! And normally I don´t even LIKE lavender. AMAZING!
Michelle Williams looks amazing in this Chanel…simple, and totally elegant. Love her hair too, she really pulls it off.
I also loved this silver Calvin Klein Gwyneth Paltrow wore. Her singing left me bored but the dress is to die for!
In general I saw A LOT of red…ahem up and coming color?! See below
Anne Hathaway in Valentino
Sandra Bullock stands out in Vera Wang
Now I am not sure if I love this dress or not, it´s by L´Wren Scott…but I do have to admit Penelope looks HOT for just popping out a baby like 3 weeks ago! But it´s a big Las Vegas showgirl, no?
Umm I´m sorry Jennifer Hudson when did you lose 100000 pounds?! I liked you before! Now your ta-tas look a little funny…in this Versace….
FINALLY I would just like to say that I LOVE this dress and oh lord do I LOVE these jewels…by why the HECK were they worn together?! Her dress was by L´Wren Scott and these jewels…well let´s just say the Cartier combo was wellllll over the one million dollar pricepoint! Why ruin the two by mixing?! This girl needs Rachel Zoe STAT!
Finally I´d like to end with Natalie Portman wearing Rodarte…I don´t HATE her dress, I wouldn´t say worst dressed…plus I know she´s pregsies but really? Is this really a ´Best Actress´appropriate dress? I think she could have done better in her tutu and swan makeup!

With these winter months coming up, tights are the perfect accessory to keep those gams warm. The question this season is: Shiny tights: Yes or No? Thanks Megan, for throwing this question out here.
Well, I say shiny tights are a DO. Just please, remember, nasty rubbery spandex or pleather is not the same as a classy shimmer tight. The most important thing is to look elegant with a shimmer look. Shimmer tights aren´t trendy, they are classy and look best paired with dresses and heels, not boots or shorts. (You don´t want to look like a Hooters waitress) A holiday event or dinner date would be perfect.
Where can you buy a shimmer tight? My favorite brands are the Givenchy gleamers, the Calvin Klein shimmer tight, and I also believe Hue and Donna Karan make them too. All these would be available at any department store.
See below for how to wear the shimmer tight.
Rachel Zoe looks beautiful in these shiny tights on her way into the Calvin Klein Party. (PS RACHEL ZOE I LOVE YOU)
This color is gorgeous and would look perfect even in the spring. Jenny Packham is one of my new favorite designers.
Gold tights is a tough look to pull off but it can fabulous if you can do it right! Chanel always does it right.
This black is more shimmery and less opaque then Rachel´s shinier pair. These are extremely wearable and easy to style: throw them on with a black dress and heels and there you have it. Entire look is Collette Dinnigan.
