Oscar Favourites – Let’s Do This!

rs_634x890-140302160348-634.lupita-nyoungo.cm.3214

 

The Oscars are this Sunday and while we haven’t seen all (or hardly any) of the movies nominated, we are well prepped for the red carpet. Whether the fashion is on point or not, we love to see who is wearing what. It’s always interesting for us to see who takes a chance, who nails it and who takes a big bite of the red carpet.
Here are a few of our faves from the last couple years (it was tough to narrow down) and who we are excited to see this year:
Excited to see:
1. Kate Blanchette always brings it on the red carpet so we are so excited to see what she is wearing. We guess Prada!
2. Brie Larson (nominee) is a newbie to the red carpet and has had her fashion game on point lately so lets hope she gets a great look for the oscars to make her debut.
3. Eddie Redmayne (nominee) always looks chic and refined on the red carpet, but we are hoping that he gives us a little more edge this time around. Perhaps a coloured suit? Here’s hoping!
All time Faves:
1. Lupita Nyongo, 2013 Oscars
She channelled her inner Cinderella and her home town of Nairobi when she wore this gorgeous blue gown. We were wide eyed when we saw her enter the red carpet. So chic and simple, this look was one of the best we have ever seen.

2. Charlize Theron, 2004 Oscars
Giving us old Hollywood glamour, this amazing gown by Gucci is a stunner! In our eyes, it’s simple, chic and sexy. Not over done and everything is on point from the hair, make up and can we talk about that tan?! Amaze!

3. Gwenyth Paltrow, 2012 Oscars
How can you not look good wearing Tom Ford?! She put the cape back on the map. The fit is pure perfection and the colour pure elegance. Sometimes simple is the way to go when you want to make a statement when everyone else is trying so hard.

Grammy’s 2016 Best Dressed

Although last night’s Grammys were a bit of a miss for us, we did enjoy the red carpet (as always) and want to share our best dressed of the evening. Overall, there were several

casual looks, some business suit realness and the odd outrageous look (mostly too out there for us to mention). We are all about expressing personal style, but pyjama pants and Hello Kitty do not belong on the red carpet.
Here are top picks for Best Dressed:
Carrie Underwood (Photo: Larry Busacca)
Giving us sexy and elegant, this black gown is sheen-tastic. Carrie showed a little leg, which is super on-trend on the red carpet these days, and the rouging gives it just the right amount of texture. The makeup and hair were also flawless.

Now that’s how you make a statement on the red carpet! Wearing Pantone’s colour of the year, Rose Quartz, this gorgeous suit is fit really well and hits the fashion mark. We love it and paired with a simple white shirt, and no tie, is the way to do it as to not overwhelm the outfit.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legen (Photo: Lester Cohen)

This was the best dressed couple of the night! We love Chrissy in white, showing off her gorgeous baby bump and amazing sparkly cape. John is killing it with a printed Blazer and black bow tie. Simple, elegant and with the right amount of fashion.

Face of Cover Girl, Zendaya is looking sharp in a black pant suit and short cropped hair. If there is anything we love it’s a fabulous woman in a pant suit and this double breasted number is so sophisticated and edgy at the same time. Perfection.

Styled by fellow Canadian Brad Goreski, Kaley looks fabulous in a Naeem Khan jump suit. She is all about sparkle, giving us all kinds of sexy with the deep-V and cut-outs. We also love her tossled hair giving the look a rocker edge.

Breath, stretch, style with #Gapfit yoga

A huge thanks to our friends at the GAP for inviting us to a special Calgary blogger yoga morning session this week. We’re always on the lookout for new gym and yoga clothes that combine fashion and function and the GAP has done it.

We love the selection of colours, bold patters and – dare we say it – we are now embracing the men’s fitness tights trend that is taking over gyms by storm. Great for yoga, running or even just getting yourself to the gym in the cold, these men’s leggings are really comfortable and look great under a simple pair of black shorts.

Check out the online store for more and follow @CamLeeYoga on instagram and twitter.

Namaste X

Early Spring Wardrobe Transition

The Groundhog stuck its head out this week and (in Calgary anyways) he didn’t see his shadow, so that means and early Spring! We already know that this has not been the harshest of winters and I think many of us are already itching to put away our winter garb and get on with Spring clothes.

But don’t get too carried away – it’s not time quite yet. Before you pull out your linens and open-toed shoes we want to suggest a transition period; one that will keep you warm but also looking refreshed. Here are a few simple ways we suggest you ease your way into a lighter wardrobe.

Get your colour on

Even if it’s just a belt or a shoe get some bright colour back into your wardrobe to break up the black and grey.

Winter florals

Why not? Whether it’s through an accessory or a floral shirt, you don’t have to wait. Mix it up with your wools, furs and tweeds.

Light Layers

Just wear more – it sounds easy enough, right?  That heavy winter coat is getting boring so pull out your overcoats, leather or denim jackets instead. Layer with sweaters, heavy scarves and hats to stay warm.
