Mad Men Monday: Oscar Monday Seth & Other Fabulousness

This week has been a busy week for me so sorry for this late post. I made shoes, jean jacket, pants, logos, more clothes, more shoes, clothes for an 80’s prom benefit and styled myself to go to an Oscar party! When I asked what the dress attire was for teh Oscar party I found a new term I have already fallen in love with…

 So, as I was told I got “Glitzy”

I even had my own Red Carpet moment with Sonja from Solminod here in Des Moines. I felt like a star. She asked me about my dress, we talked about  the industry of modeling and fashion and acting and then snapped a pic.
As if that wasn’t enough, WOI-TV ABC was on location as well and I was on the local news with my predictions. If that don’t make someone feel famous I don’t know what will!

and I got to finally meet in person one of the photographers I always talk to online who used to model Miss Valerie Pugh Shane

I went early for the IMPA Kick Off event and saw past winners and then got to watch the Oscars in a theatre on the big screen and the IMPA gave our door prizes during the commericals. I didn’t win anything but that’s ok. I felt like a winner just by being there and being interviewed twice!

Now, onto my thoughts on the Oscars and the Red Carpet…

Let me say this first…Seth McFalane did NOT step over the line…he was Seth. Hello! If you don’t want someone edgy, don’t ask someone like Seth. I thought he was Fabulous and funny and looked great. I am oh so tired of hearing already how he stepped over the line. He was himself. Move on about it already.

Now onto the rest of my Red Carpet Review

Do you know what I love about the fact that Jennifer Lawerence fell? It showed the world Hollywood is human. I also love how she tells them, “Oh you are only giving me a standing O because felt sorry I fell, sit down”

I went to The Colony in California and was trained in Voice, Dance you name it and no amount of training can help the fact that we are all human and things happen. You get back up and go on with the show. That’s what Hollywood always says right?

 Being the Vintage gal I love that old Hollywood Glamour look and Jessica Chastain really pulled that off

I love Witherspoons’ Louis Vuitton Splash of color Blue

and…of course…we can’t forget to mention the best accessory there…the Puppy Purse with Little Q

But for me, the best was Helen Hunt showing us that Oscar style does not have to break the bank but showing us classy and elegant with my favorite New York store H&M

I could talk all day about the glamour, the Oscars and the event. I even spent some of the morning watching Morning After Oscar shows and I never do that. EVER. But I love the glamour and maybe, just maybe I will be able to style or dress one of those fabulous ladies in something from SensaFashion…

Who knows..

Until next time..

Saturday Morning Special: Back from NYC

I’m Back from NYC and it was a whirlwind of a Trip. I ha d a blast and it was super fun but those quickie trips can wipe you out. I went for IFBCON for Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference and learned a lot and met some amazing people.

We listened to some great panels and Workshops

I am working on some other designs and things so I don’t have much time for a post but I wanted to leave you with some pics.

Wore one of my Aprons I had created to the Conference

and the shoes I made

Got to meet Tyson Beckford

Made a new shirt design at the MailChimp Booth

Met some super kewl people (her name is Robyn)

 Was Gifted an Alex and Ani Path of Life Bracelet

So of course that means I met some kewl Alex and Ani people 🙂

This is Ryan. He is the BIZ guy.

 I went to an After PArty at the Lillium at the W Hotels Inc

The next morning I went to a NYC Cafe

Then I strolled the streets of NYC

I had a NYC Bagel (It DOES taste better btw)

I walked by a NYC park

I didn’t have time to shop so I “Window Shopped” like a Breakfast at Tiffanys kinda girl

I took a NYC Taxi (and was thankful I didn’t have to drive)

Had to go through the tunnels, then to the airport and barely got a seat and made it out before the big NEMO storm that hit Fashion Week 2013

Then when I got home my honey had took out the trash, done the dishes and bought me flowers to welcome me home….

I had a great time. Came home a bit ragged. Tons of swag for me and my interns and my SensaFashion team. I know I ask a lot of my team and through many of my business I have gained some and I have lost some. But the things is this….I reward my team very well. I honor them for their successes. I desire to help them grow and want them to grow with me. Today I launched a  NEW newsletter and already have people emailing and Facebooking me asking how they can get involved.

 I am ready to rock 2013, to grow, to move the shake things up. I want to thank my team publicly for being a part of that and hope you all are ready to grow and rock and have a fun 2013 with everything we are going to do!! DO YOU WANNA GET ROCKED?????
