The Look for Less: Red Carpet Edition

Happy hump day my fellow thriftanistas. I am going to keep today’s post short and sweet. Awards season has just ended and although I don’t really watch all the shows I definitely keep up with the FASHIONS. There were some absolutely gorgeous gowns on the red carpet this year. On the flip side there were some monstrosities that made me want to go ask the stylist what the HELL where you thinking???? Okay but I digress back to the fabulous. One of my favorite looks of the 2012 awards season was Viola Davis in that beautiful green Vera Wang mermaid gown. She looked regal, beautiful, flawless and I LOVED that she rocked her natural hair. If it sounds like I am gushing over this women……… it’s because I AM. I think she represented true HOLLYWOOD glamour. Which brings me to my look of the day. I gave myself a CHALLENGE. I wanted to see if I could put together a Red Carpet ready look for $10.00 or less. I wanted a bright beautiful color like Mrs. Davis and was even inspired to start fresh and rock my natural hair. Watch the video below to see how I got red carpet ready for $8.35+ tax. Tell me what you think. I would also love to hear what your favorite red carpet look was from this season.

    As a man who fully appreciates a woman who is impeccably dressed, I applaud the stylish fashions shown on Joslyn’s blog. These are pieces that she has been able to acquire at amazingly low prices. Ladies…I guarantee..that.even if your guy is REAL TIGHT with his cash, he won’t mind buying your next wardrobe…at prices like these. I’m a witness.
