Monday Must

Must Share


This freeze frame from a video my mom took of my sister and I in a head-to-head Wii dance off, kills me. In my head, my dance skills were right there with the likes of Jennifer Lopez. As evident from the picture, I was having a little too much fun. As for the picture on the right... who needs a couch these days anyways? :)

Must Recreate

These days, when it comes to searching for the next nail color I've found myself wanting more than just the usual glitter polish. I literally almost fainted when I found these fabulous nail creations on Pinterest. So when you're due for your next mani, get crafty and think outside the polish box with these fun ideas!

Must Shop


OMG! The ultra fabulous celebrity stylist extraordinaire, Rachel Zoe has signed on as chief stylist for online shoe retailer, ShoeDazzle. Rach will be working side by side with co-founder Brian Lee to bring all of us fashion lovers some seriously fab shoes at an affordable price. Before signing Zoe, ShoeDazzle surveyed over 50,000 of its customers on whom they'd like to take style advice from. Rachel was of course number one on the list, leading to this amazing partnership. Eek! 

Must Ask 


I thought Julianne Hough looked beyond stunning last night in this incredible Monique Lhuillier gown. I've been a huge fan of Julianne's since she blew me away in "Footloose." Girl's got serious acting skills. My other favorite of the night was Lea Michele in Elie Saab. Who was your best and worst dressed? 

Must Try


I may be jumping the gun with my excitement for Valentine's Day, but when I find a super easy and equally fabulous DIY that involves making accessories, it's more than difficult to contain my excitement. Check it out here!

Must Watch


Last night's Golden Globes was a breath of fresh air. One of my favorites so far. Tina and Amy killed it from beginning to end. This was one of my favorite moments from last night. PS. How amazing does Kristen Wiig look? Love her. 

Must Read


Teen Vogue recently interviewed AnnaSophia Robb on her star turning role as the young Carrie Bradshaw in CW's "The Carrie Diaries" which premieres tonight"When I was younger, I didn't want to be on TV," she says. "I made a conscious decision to stay away from Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel—not that they're not great companies, but because I wanted to play different kinds of roles and have the freedom to choose my projects. So when my agent called about this job, I said no way. TV was too much of a commitment." But the pilot script won her over. "I realized it was actually a really strong story. It had a lot of heart and integrity, and Carrie seems like a character that I can grow with." To read the full interview be sure to click here

  24. Funny thing when I was pregnant we had a ton of connect dance wars and I beat the top score every time (I'm talking eight months), now I can't even get half the score....there must of been a cheat something or another in the game. I'm really excited about the Carrie Diaries and last Wednesday was my first time tackling the pastels this winter! I think I did pretty good!

  26. I bought the Sharpie's after seeing that same nail trick on TBD! Haven't tried it yet, but that might be my next mani! I thought Lea Michelle was absolutely stunning last night! And I'm definitely going to be watching the Carrie Diaries tonight! Also- love the last inspirational quote!

  27. Great post!! I bought some sharpies to try out the metallic nails but haven't gotten around to it yet... mostly because I promptly forgot the sharpies at my boyfriend's house! Those nails are super super cute.

  28. Haha, I love the first picture of you dancing. In my head I'm an amazing dancer too, but in real life... not so much. The Kristin and Will moment from last night's GG was SO funny and just awesome. Definitely one of my favorites of the night!

  44. Love all of this! The Golden Globes were filled with funny moments and the Will Ferrell bit was hilarious. My best dressed choice is probably Zoe Deschanel. She picked the right cut and color and just looked absolutely stunning. (I hated Lucy Lui's dress though...)

  52. Hi Anna, I love this quote as it speaks to me very much. I read your 'About Me' and I must say you are VERY inspiring. I have been through a lot myself and started the fashion side of my blog just this last year. I know I can do it, I just need guidance on how to do it, you know? I also went out on a limb and started a "side business" with Stella & Dot and have always wanted to be an accessories designer, but I just don't know how to go about that yet.

    I want you to know that I'm VERY appreciative of you visiting my blog because I know that as busy as you are, you took the time to comment and provide me with your feedback. I too, hope that I can give back to others with fashion (and already started doing that with Dress 4 Yellow) and do it as successfully as you.
