The Blogscars: Red Carpet Edition


As part of the great Blogscars race, my friend (and Blogscar creator) Janette asked the nominees to don their best red carpet looks. 

Now, I love any reason to get all dressed up, so when I was given the chance to do so, I got super excited. I chose this pretty gown because it is flowy and ethereal, perfectly fit for gliding gracefully down the red carpet. It's the most dazzling shade of grey, and the sequins at the waist add just a touch of glam.

This was just a red carpet dream....
My gown wasn't custom-made and I had to apply my own pretty pink lipstick.
There was no team of professionals creating perfect waves in my hair.
And, I was not swarmed by papparazzi screaming my name while snapping away.
But standing in my house with my two favorite guys while living out a fashion dream sure was fun...
and I managed to feel like quite the star.

The Blogscar winners will be announced on Oscar Night, this Sunday! A big thanks to all who voted for me. Fingers crossed I bring home a win!
