Oscar Fashion 2013

Hey guys, did anyone watch the Oscars? I always enjoy watching them as I am a huuuge film fan but also from a fashion point of view of course.

Anyway, here are my top picks:

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

Now this is my favourite, the colour and the fabric are just to die for. A real princess type dress.

Robin Roberts in Marc Bouwer

I just love this gorgeous royal blue colour, which looks even more vibrant because of the velvet.

Kelly Osbourne in Tony Ward

While not a big fan of Kelly I have to say this dress is gorgeous and then it really does suit her to a t.

Sandra Bullock in Elie Saab

I love Sandra Bullock and I just don't think she ever makes a wrong choice. So elegant.

Kelly Rowland in Donna Karen Atelier

Now this isn't a dress I would ever usually pick as a favourite but I just love it. So stunning. The structure is just fabulous and the monochrome definitely helps.

Quvenzhané Wallis in Giorgio Armani Junior

How cute is she? This dress is perfect for her, I hate when little girls are dressed like little women but this is perfect for her age group. Also, the colour is stunning. Not to mention her puppy purse, cute!

Fan Bingbing in Marchesa

Whilst I am not a big fan of the structure of this dress, I absolutely adore the colour. Its so vivid and makes a change to see such a pop of colour on the red carpet.

Naomi Watts in Armani Price

Okay on the whole I really love this dress but I'm not a big fan of the cut out. I think it would have looked better if it didn't have the cut out.

Dame Shirley Bassey in Isabel Christianson

I think this dress is really simple but lovely nonetheless. Love the sleeves and the sparkles.

Nancy O'Dell in Mark Zunino

I love the colour of this dress, the different shades of blue really compliment one another and I love the train.

And a couple of bonus shots:

Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci

I much prefer Naomi's second dress to her first one. I love the combination of then gold, black and sparkles.

Helena Bonham Carter in Vivienne Westwood

I just have to include Helena as I am such a huge fan and I just love her quirky dress sense and the fact that she refuses to conform and just wear what she loves.

So that's it. Sorry that post was almost as long as the actual Oscars but once I get started I get a bit carried away.

Shorty McShortkins!

Hi guys, just a quick wee post to show my new hair. I actually did it and went for the chop today. This is the shortest I have ever been in my life and I'm not too sure about it yet. Maybe be different if I can get it to sit the way I like, all spiky and such. Any help or tips greatly appreciated!

Anyway that is it. As you can see totally different to my hair before, hopefully it will grow on me. ha ha. No pun intended.

Apologies & OOTD

Hi guys, first of all I want to apologise for my disappearing act. I've had some stuff to deal with personally and I just haven't had any blogging momentum.. So I haven't really been painting my nails as much as I usually do, I just seem to have run out of inspiration. Any ideas or info would be greatly appreciated.

So I have decided to open up my blog to more than just nails. This was my plan initially but I just seemed to always concentrate on nails. I seem to have ran out of nail inspiration but I am getting back into my fashion again. I have always loved fashion but latterly I was always wearing the same things and just couldn't be bothered with it, probably because my room was an absolute tip but since I've been trying to fix this I have found lots of old clothes that I forgot I had (even some with the tags still on...naughty Robyn!).

Anyway, I am going to do my first outfit of the day post. I will apologise though as the pictures aren't the best.

Jacket - Oasis
Skirt - Ebay
Leggings - Internacionale
Socks - Topshop
Sneakers - Primark
Hair Bow - Claire's
Rings - Claire's & ASDA
Bag - Kiddyland

Yeah so the pictures aren't great but I'm not a great poser. I shall definitely work on my posing technique and training my photographer. ha ha.

This last picture is just a reference point to the length of my hair as I'm getting it chopped tomorrow. I'm getting a real bad case of last minute nerves as it will be the shortest I've ever had it. I think I'm just nervous because it will be really different. It's sod's law though as every other day my hair is like a haystack but the day before I get it cut it sits exactly the way I'm wanting. Typical. Anyway wish me luck guys and I shall have pictures up when I get it done unless it's horrible and I shall hide forever more. Just kidding.

Anyway, sorry for the long winded ramble but I suppose it makes up for my month long disappearance.
