Best Met Gala Looks of All Time
The Met Gala --- AKA the epitome of fashion --- is just around the corner and I am so excited! No red carpet event can compete with the outstanding gowns that parade into the Met. Ever since it's beginning nearly 70 years ago, some of the most amazing looks have been photographed there.

For those who aren't aware of this fabulous event, it's an annual fundraising gala that benefits the costume institute in the metropolitan museum of art in New York City. Each year there's a design theme that the attendees follow. Then for that year, the museum displays works of fashion that follow the theme. Over the past few years the Pink Ladies have made visits to the Met to take a look at the stunning fashion that inspired the exhibit.

This year the theme is "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and Catholic Imagination".  It shows the connection between fashion and the masterworks of religious art.

By the way, we'll be heading to New York this summer to check out the exhibit so keep an eye out for it!

A Day in Nashville

A Day in Nashville

At the beginning of this month I travelled to Nashville for the weekend and I had the best time! Nashville is such a lively city with amazing food, music, shopping and the nicest people! Follow me around for a fun time in 'Music City'!

What I Wore:

On this day I wore a blazer from Who What Wear, sweater from Brandy Melville, Jeans from Anthropologie, Belt from Asos, and bag and shoes from Zara.

It was pretty chilly while I was there so I packed lots of sweaters and a blazer to wear during the day and a leather jacket to go out at night in. 

We grabbed lunch and coffee at the cutest place called Caviar and Bananas:

This spot had it all - a coffee shop, salad bar, a sandwich  shop, snacks and most importantly... wine.

Then we hung out at The Gulch that had loads of restaurants and shopping such as Urban Outfitters and really cute boutiques.

After that I got a tour of Warner Music (thanks to my girl Marti) since this city is known for it's music scene! It was so cool to go behind the scenes and take a peek inside this magical industry. 

We headed to 12 South which was a cute neighborhood also filled with boutiques and fun places to dine.

We stopped inside Reese Witherspoon's store, Draper James, which stocked with all things southern. It was a lovely boutique that I recommend checking out if you're in town.

I had a mini freak out when I spotted a Sprinkles on the same street!
I ordered a sundae which comes with a cupcake inside!! SO GOOD

At night, we went back to The Gulch where The Thompson hotel is located. They have a rooftop bar called L.A. Jackson and we had some wine and talked outside before heading out for a night on the town!

I loved Nashville and I can't wait to go back soon!

Sixties Queen

Sixties Queen
Hair and makeup trends come and go, but there is one style that always seems to find its way back into fashion... the Sixties It girl.

I think the hair and makeup from the Sixties is the most flattering, beautiful makeup that's ever been around. Brigitte Bardot, Twiggy, Barbara Bouchet and so many others rocked the teased hair, big eyes and pouty nude lips.

Makeup during the Sixties was all about the eyes. Strong cut-creases and thick liner with heap of mascara.

It's my go to makeup. Sometimes I stray away from it but when an important event or date  rolls around I always go back to the doll eye makeup and full hair.

Now days you still see models in magazines, musicians and fashion icons trying to get the look.

It's so feminine and a style that'll never fade through time.
