Being a big pop culture junkie, I am pretty bummed that I missed the Oscars last night on account of a LONG day of traveling. But being the junkie I am, I’ve already gone through picture after picture of the red carpet. My favorites: Reese Witherspoon, Rosamund Pike, Jennifer Anniston and Jennifer Lopez.
I’m guessing you’ve already seen all the red carpet favorites too so I’m rounding up my favorite post-Academy Award Show looks from, what I assume is, the classiest party on the earth – the Vanity Fair party.
Forget the award show, hitting up this party is on a DREAM list. Can you imagine how fun, fabulous and full of great gossip it must be? So yeah, if anyone ever even hinted that I could sneak in to it, I’d be there in a heart beat.
These Instagram portraits from inside the party by Mark Seliger only further confirmed how incredible I imagine the whole thing is. They also confirm that my Instagram game is piss-poor at best in comparison to these snaps.
The Mindy Kaling one may be my favorite – she looked so gorgeous and ever since I read her book, I’ve become a total fan girl. I’m only hoping there are more to come that haven’t yet been posted. Maybe a Reese Witherspoon or Lupita N’yongo portrait where they are pretending to laugh/smile because they are best friends?
Last week, Gumer & Co. Jewelry hosted a shopping event that was a combination of things I can definitely get behind. Diamonds, Drinks & Discounts. Yes please.
Nothing like getting together over the holidays and picking out some new sparkly jewelry over a cocktail. I couldn’t make it to the party but some pals snapped some pictures of the set-up that included drinks from Copper & Kings and apps from Brownies The Shed. How pretty are those cocktail rings Emilee is sporting below?
In between the wining and dining, there was lots of trying on pieces from their gorgeous selection of jewelry. How pretty are those cocktail rings Emilee is sporting below?
But it wasn’t all break the bank jewels. Gumer & Co. (225 S. Hurstbourne Parkway | 502.327.3330) has a ton of great gift options – like these Alex and Ani bracelets – that will put a smile on any gals face. You can even go in and pick out some favorites and then send your guy in to pick from the options. And if you know a guy looking to pop the question and make it a December to remember, Gumer & Co. has a special right now where they will buy the groom’s wedding band when he seals the deal on an engagement ring for the bride-to-be. If you stop in, be sure to tell ‘em you saw it here!
Ann Speltz – I’ll take that blazer, mmkay?

I’ll take one of each please.
Clearly I am still getting caught up after a week away. Crazy how a few days can through off your whole schedule. Moving on…
The last weekend in September has become one I circle on my calendar thanks to NuLu Festival. Started as a small neighborhood festival, it’s evolved into a big giant party that takes up about three blocks of East Market Street and is jam packed with vendors, delicious food, beer (on beer on beer), cocktails, music and more.
Normally, I like to go in the late afternoon to grab a few beers, stroll around and enjoy some of the bands but this year I had to go to a work event that night so I stopped by early. Thankfully there were doughnuts (Louisville peeps – make sure to check out Hi-Five Doughnuts – they let you build your own doughnut – so crazy good), some good shopping and catching up with some folks I hadn’t seen in a while.
Better yet, there were tons of fashionable faces walking around as well. It’s been a while since I’ve done any style spotting so I snapped a few pics of some locals to share with you all. The funny thing is that even though this was only about 10 days ago, in weather terms, it seems like an entirely different season. I think it might have been the last truly summer-y weekend of the year. So even though we’re full steam ahead into fall, I’m loving all the stylish shorts & sandals in this post.
Thanks to all the guys and gals that let me snap their pic, if you see your face (or know some one I snapped) let me know your name in the comments and I’ll update!
Alumnious Events was there with their decked-out Airstream serving drinks, cooling people down and showing all the college football games. The gals of Hi-Five Doughnuts
By far the most stylish mother/daughter duo I’ve seen. There’s nothing I’m not obsessed with in this picture but I may need to be a big time copy cat and get Kristen’s sunglasses ASAP. My buds Alex & CaitlinGotta love a guy in polka dots. And how cute are their glasses?Erin – So simple, summery and chic. Now I’m on the hunt for these scalloped polka dot shorts. Printed and a little preppy. Love those salmon sperry’s.
