Cause Darling I’m A Nightmare Dressed Like A Daydream

If you guys have been following me on Instagram *wink wink hint hint:@loansandlouboutins* then you’re all well aware that I’m absolutely obsessed with Taylor Swift’s new album ‘1989.’ It’s no secret that Taylor is my favorite celebrity of all time, so my opinion MIGHT be a little biased, but this may or may not be the best album ever. Girlfrand is freaking killin it on the charts and sounded amazing on Good Morning America. I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when the ‘Blank Space’ music video came out (you can ask my wonderfully patient roommates: I talked about it for two days straight). Not only does Taylor know how to poke fun at herself, but she knows how to do it while looking fabulous. Below are a few of my favorite fashion moments from the ‘Blank Space’ video. Oh, and Taylor in case you haven’t seen my continuous Tweets/Instagrams: I’m free anywhere anytime to hang out. But my best friend?

1) Taylor Kills A Cake

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I wear my old high school T-shirts and yoga pants with holes in them to bed. Not Tay. Everything about this look is off the charts hot. Between the all black, the sheer cardigan and the lace sleeping mask, I’m certainly inspired to amp up my sleepwear. Emulate Taylor’s look with a black bralette and her famous red lip, but maybe just leave the knife in the kitchen. Oh, and let’s not forget the special appearance by Taylor’s cat Olivia Benson. I actually don’t think she can get any cooler.

2) Ooops I Dropped Your Phone…

I dare you to tell me you don’t love this outfit. First off, holy crap does this girl have some long legs. At 5’3 her stature is enviable to say the least. Since I cant have her height, I can at least copy her outfit. The matching crop top and skirt combo has been a favorite look of mine for a while now. This floral pencil skirt and crop top would look amazing for a night out with killer heels and a leather jacket. Your gonna look so fab everyone’s gonna be all:

3) Taylor Hangs Out With A Deer

Screen shot 2014-11-15 at 2.01.13 PMThis is hands down one of the best parts of the video when Taylor gets crazy eyes and goes berserk on her leading man. A leopard print dress with heels and gold jewelry a-la Taylor is a perfect date night option. Just be sure to leave your crazy at home. Also, I wouldn’t be doing this look justice if I didn’t include this gem:

  So go watch ‘Blank Space’ for the 1000th time and check out all of these amazing style moments. The haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate about Taylor’s love life, but we all know she’s the one who’s laugh laugh laugh laughing all the way to the bank.


Met Ball Gala 2014 Roundup

You guys have no idea how much it has been killing me that the 2014 Met Ball Gala coincided with finals week. It was like some cruel cruel joke cast by the fashion gods. Luckily, finals are behind me and I can FINALLY write about one of my favorite events of the year. As I’m sure many of you already know, the theme for this year’s Met Ball was “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” James was a designer who is most well known for creating gorgeous ball gowns in the 40’s and 50’s. The dress code was “White Tie and Decorations” which in normal human language translates into “a full evening dress for women, and white tie for men.” This is about as fancy as it gets people, so lets dive right into this fashion cornucopia.

Best Dressed: Karolina Kurkova

So. Much. Yes. Karolina Kurcova looks like a real life version of Cinderella in this stunning midnight blue Marchesa gown. Between the hand-painted florals, the structured folds, and the minimal accessories, Karolina hands down wins my vote for best dressed of the night. She totally embodies the fun and whimsical atmosphere of the event and I love that she totally went all in with the theme. If only I could wear a ball gown to the local bars. A girl can dream right?

Dress Code Amnesia

It seems that more than a few celebrities disregarded the dress code for the event this year (Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Elizabeth Olsen, I’m lookin’ at you). However, the most disappointing of the night was it-girl Cara Delevingne. Let me start by saying that Cara looks absolutely fabulous in this Stella McCartney ensemble. Seriously though, if I had a body like that I would probably wear crop tops to every event also, but it just wasn’t appropriate for the Met Ball.I love that Cara likes to dress edgy on the red carpet, but that doesn’t mean she couldn’t have worn a dress! I think she would have totally rocked something á la Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta at the 2011 Golden Globes. My vote is that she should have worn a dress to the Met Ball and then the Stella McCarnety outfit to the after party. Oh and Anna Wintour, just so you know: I PROMISE TO FOLLOW THE DRESS CODE IF YOU INVITE ME TO THE 2015 MET BALL GALA. Just throwing that out there


"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals    christina hendricks

Ugh. Leave it to Kate Upton to wear an ensemble like this and still look gorgeous. I think the best way to describe my feelings towards this Dolce and Gabana ensemble would be the grimacing face emojii with its teeth bared (you know which one I’m talking about). Everything about this look is just…wrong. Between the ruffles, the sheerness, the corseted bodice, the necklace, the earrings, the rings, the headpiece, it is just WAY too much. A beautiful girl like Kate Upton doesn’t need all these crazy details and accessories. I think she would have looked absolutely stunning in something similar to the Zac Posen dress Christina Hendricks wore to the 2010 Emmy Awards. Oh and Kate, I think whoever styled you for this event has gotsta go.

So there you have it friends! “The Best”, “The Eh”, and “The *head tilt* “oh sweetie, no.” I would have totally went full on ball gown for this event. What would you have worn? Who was your best dressed? Worst dressed? Let me know! I love to hear from you lovely Fashionistas.
