His very first set of golf clubs!
Casual sneakers look best with pants that hit slightly above your ankle (try ponte pants or cuffed jeans). They’re perfect for the weekend too: wear them with leggings, a long, slouchy tee and a jacket.
The only one missing is a checkered Vans slip-on.

I had tons of plans for working out this morning…cardio, strength training, the whole deal. It’s long overdue and I’m jonesing to expend all this extra energy I have from being stuck indoors (damn you, Polar Vortex).
BUT…as I was rushing around my bedroom, pulling on some Lululemon pants and dashing into my closet for a zip-up fleece, I jammed my bare foot into the sharpest corner of the wall, crunching three of my toes and sending pain shooting through my body (you know, that kind that makes you want to swear so loud, but you stifle it because your kid is right there).
So now I’m sitting in the library, cranking through a more detailed outline of my memoir, in full workout gear, with a throbbing foot gently placed inside a running shoe, and zero plans to hit the gym.
The only red carpet outfits that really matter.
These two! I want to hug them so tightly.
I have seen exactly one movie that is nominated: Gravity. Read my thoughts on it here.
Two of my favorite movies that poke fun at the Academy Awards: For Your Consideration and Tropic Thunder.
Fitz enjoys watching the Red Carpet pre-show with me.
I geek out over screenplays and would love to write one. I adore Aaron Sorkin and Diablo Cody is a huge inspiration to me (we share the same alma mater).
Pan’s Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I was inspired to watch it after seeing it win Oscars for art direction, makeup, music, screenplay, and cinematography.
Quiz Show is also one of my favorite movies, yet it didn’t win a single Oscar, despite multiple nominations.
Hugh Jackman is my favorite Oscar host. Anyone remember his duet with Beyonce?
Blast From the Past: My Favorite Oscar Dresses
Nicole Kidman in Galliano (1997): Who else could wear chartreuse and make it look effortlessly appealing? Notable not pictured: Tom Cruise.
Helen Hunt in Tom Ford for Gucci (1998): Timeless. Hunt is so under-the-radar beautiful and this dress wore well with hardly any accessories or sass.
Michelle Williams in Vera Wang (2005): It’s as though she transitioned from movie star to film legend after wearing this bright mustard chiffon dream (never thought I’d say those words together). OH, and never underestimate the power of a red lip.
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy (2010): Sure, it’s ruffled and fluffy but it’s sooooo fun.
Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace (2003): She may have royally messed up in her Oscars debut (THAT HAIR), but Kate more than made up for it when she glided down the red carpet in a shimmering flesh-toned gown that seemed to flow on forever.
Mila Kunis in Elie Saab (2011): The details of this dress still sweep me away- specifically how the lace hugs her bust without being vulgar. When I was in Paris, I walked by Elie Saab’s Shop and the doorway alone screamed LUXURIOUS (I was far too intimidated to walk in). Ever since, I have felt a reverence for his skill.
Nicole Kidman in Balenciaga (2007): I can’t think of anyone else who could wear the hell out of this dress other than Nicole Kidman. The hair, the lips, the attitude, the glare, the posture…she is the world’s most stunning Christmas gift.
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy Haute Couture (2011): Cate wears what Cate wants. Trendsetting on the regular, never phoning it in. I really like the fact that she answers to no one and regularly walks with confidence and a simple smile.
Am I missing any other greats?

Instead of the exquisite, hand-woven tweeds of couture — which cost a fortune and look it — Jarrar made “industrial” versions, the poetic way of saying they were man-made, but still very beautiful. For More
