Inspirations for Today

Today started with no Internet access, a slip (and unpleasant fall) down my icy walkway, a sad ending to my favorite class ever, and a rush to driver's ed. But hopefully, with a little inspiration, my week will turn out okay!

Did anyone see Emily Blunt's Dolce and Gabbana dress on the Golden Globes? I love, love, loved it! Not only did she look great on the red carpet, but Emily looked stunning last night when she was on Jay Leno. But I wasn't as struck by her dress as I was her accent. It's the perfect balance between too posh and too Cockney. I sooo wish I could jet off to England and pick-up that accent with the blink of an eye. I was also impressed by her wit and humor she held on camera. Not many celebrities that go on late night shows (or any appearance for that matter) can find things to talk about that don’t include their career or a charity they support. Emily managed to get the whole audience laughing with her story of when she got pulled over in LA, complete with a hilarious impression of the cop who was terrified of her UK driver’s license.

Yesterday, I discovered the blog Clothes Horse and loved how she made several outfits around one dress. Then, noticing her impressive list of sponsors and number of followers, my first reaction was to be jealous of how successful her blog had become. But then I realized that it’s people like her who make blogging so marvelously rewarding. I wrote her an email asking her advice on how to make my blog better and she replied with a very kind and helpful response!

This cute little Behnaz Sarafpour dress was another Gilt Groupe find of mine. It’s pretty hard to go on that site and not find something totally amazing, but it’s even harder to find the money to shop with…so I guess it might be a good thing that almost everything is out of my reach or I would have a lot of impending debt before I even got to college!

Hope everyone's week is lovely so far!
