Best-Dressed of 2011

As this year comes to a close, it is nice to look back on all of the fashion choices of 2011. Whether bold or simple, colorful or sparkly, quirky or sweet, and on the best- or worst-dressed list, celebrities really stepped out of their shells this year. Many made daring dress decisions, and thank goodness, because they certainly kept us entertained and inspired throughout the year. In fact, there were so many style standouts that it was nearly impossible to choose my favorites. But after searching for and staring at so many dresses that my eyes hurt, I now give you my Best-Dressed of 2011 list:

 Emma Watson wearing Oscar de la Renta

Emma Stone wearing Bottega Veneta

Katie Holmes in Calvin Klein

(Warning: Stand back-- the following dresses are RED HOT.)

Lea Michele wearing Marchesa

Nina Dobrev wearing Donna Karan

Mila Kunis wearing Alexander McQueen

Elle Fanning wearing Marc by Marc Jacobs

Hope you enjoyed these fashion flashbacks of 2011, and have a happy new year!

Winter Wonderland- Nails of the Week

To achieve these frosty-looking blue nails, I first painted them with one coat of light blue polish. The one is used is from the brand Bonita which can be purchased at the store Francesca's. After they were dry, I painted only the tips of my nails with a clear top coat. If you do not have a steady hand, you could put tape on the rest of your nail to only expose the tips before painting them clear. Then, while the tips were still wet, I dipped them in loose silver-white craft glitter. Finally, I painted the enitre nail with a top coat. I hope you love this wintry look as much as I do!

How to Wear... Florals in the Fall/Winter

Leggings- Forever 21
Belt- Forever 21
Boots- Target

Wearing floral prints in the fall and winter can be tricky. To make sure that your flowery outfit doesn't look like it belongs in summer, I recommend the following:
-a dark background of the floral print (mine is black with orange and pink flowers)
-dark leggings or tights
-leather boots
-a sweater, cardigan, or coat (depending on the weather)
-a belt to make sure that your figure is not lost in the outerwear you choose

Hope you enjoyed and will try this look!
