weekend roundup + the oscars

Show was located in the heart of downtown Birmingham at Bromberg's
I sure hope this week lives up to how nice my weekend was. Not that it was extravagant or anything, but it was just simply wonderful. It started out with a phone call from my grandmother Friday. She's almost as hilarious as Gladys. And then a little work, beautiful weather, and my weekend ended with the first set of shows for Birmingham Fashion Week. I had a few friends walking in the show, so some girl friends and I decided to support them and the city's emerging fashion setting. Needless to say, we had a ball! It was Bride Atelier {wedding runway show} which consisted of stunning wedding gowns, flirty bridesmaid dresses, and multiple exchanges of  "Oh, are you a bride?!" with a laughing response, "Oh no no, Lord no, not for a while, we're here supporting friends!" The show comprised of Bella BridesmaidBella Couture, Ivory and WhiteLula Kate, and Ivy & Aster


Some friends that walked the cat walk with some fierce attitude.

Such diva models, ha!

Do you watch the Academy Awards? They are my favorite award show of the season, or at least the red carpet. This year did not disappoint! Other key notes of the evening 1) The shark attack music played when the award winners rambled on forever 2) My brother shushing me every time Jennifer Garner appeared because apparently that is his dream girl {one of his many}, ha! Too bad she's married and he's twenty years plus younger than her.My best dressed choice of the evening was Anne Hathaway's mullet-inspired dress {not kidding, business in the front, party in the back}. She looked absolutely stunning and her speech was so thoughtful and sincere. Other favorites included: Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kerry Washington.  Here are some of their glamour shots on the red carpet . . .
