     Was it me or did someone send around a- you must wear sheer and look naked- memo to the attendees of the Vanity Fair after party!?  I mean, seriously, I get the whole concept of letting your hair down and showing a little more skin now that all of the award show stuff was over (after all isn’t that what after party’s are for) but this…. this takes it to a whole other level, and not in a good way!

     Let’s move on- shall we?  So the Oscars and after party’s…   obviously my favorite part: The fashion!!!  As expected, the dresses were nothing short of perfection (minus a few naked people)!!!  Let’s just say I got my fashion “fix” for the next few days. The only problem I faced was whittling this list down to my favorites.  Even so, (after 48 hours and a few grandé soy lattés later) I was finally able to digest it all and, below, I break it down!

     Next to chocolate & coffee- crossing things off your never ending “to-do” list feels pretty fu&*ing AWESOME! (I apologize for the latter but another thing that feels pretty fu*&ing awesome- is cursing when your kids are at school)!

     So usually my “to-do” list consists of things like food shopping, returning something somewhere, and Target (yes ALWAYS target)! But then there’s that other “to-do” list- you know the one that sits in the way back of your mind. The one that has things on it like, go paddle boarding and plant an organic vegetable garden. The “list” you typically never get to because you’re just to BUSY with the mundane tasks of everyday life. You know the “list” that holds your dreams, that inspires you and feeds your soul. The “list” you think about possibly getting to when everything else gets done (which never does). The one you think about at night, but forget about in the morning. Well, this week, I get to check off something from that “list” and I’m so excited!!!

     Announcing: SHOP Dara Michelle Style. An online boutique inspired by my fashion blog: www.daramichellestyle.com. Now readers can shop the looks I write about! My goal: To make the world a better place one fashion moment at a time. Thanks again for your continued love and support and for encouraging me to take this next step. I am truly grateful! Here’s to checking off things on your “dream list”!!! And luckily it’s okay to drink champagne at 10am as long as it’s mixed with orange juice and called a Mimosa! L’chaim!!!

   Last night while the whole house was sleeping I stayed up with my favorite award show: The Grammy’s!!! What makes this one of my favorite shows- the fashion obviously!!!  This is the red carpet where everyone gets a little more playful, taking a little more risks leaving us fashion obsessed peeps busting at the seems in anticipation!  This was the show after all where just over a year ago Beyoncé killed it with a leotard and wet hair in her performance of “Drunk In Love” and Britney Spears infamously stripped down to a nude, crystal embellished two-piece in her 2000 performance only to outdo herself a year later draped in a live snake when she sang “I’m a Slave 4 U”!  Needless to say this year’s fashion did not disappoint! Check out my picks for best dressed at Grammy’s 2015 below!
