If you follow me on Twitter, you know that only one thing mattered for me this past weekend: The Academy Awards. I know that award shows are lame, but I've just always had a strong love for the Oscars. I grew up watching it with my family, and I've grown to love texting my mom and best friend Whitney during the entire show while in Illinois. As a huge movie lover and obsessive reader of entertainment websites (in case you're wondering, Vulture is my favorite and I read it religiously), the biggest day of the year for film will forever have a place in my heart. I was pretty happy with this year's fairly laid-back ceremony and even though the awards were some of the most predictable ones in recent memory (not really a single shocker), I still couldn't complain about any of them. I had seen three of the Best Picture nominees already ("Her," "American Hustle," and "The Wolf of Wall Street") and I spent all of Saturday in bed watching three more ("Dallas Buyers Club," "Nebraska," and "Gravity"). Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to see "12 Years a Slave," but I'll get to it eventually. Also if you follow me on Twitter, you know that my favorite film of the year was "Her," which means that the highlight of the show for me was Spike Jonze winning Best Original Screenplay. That and John Travolta's misproununciation of Idina Menzel's name. So. Funny.
Oh, about the outfit. This was a super simple, "oh, crap, I'm being picked up in 10 minutes" outfit, but it got the job done. Burgundy cardigan + polka dots + A-line skirt is a no-fail combination in a pinch.
