Style Me Bloggers: All glammed up and no place to go

I have a confession to make. You ready? It's pretty serious. Here it is:

I don't care about the Oscars, the Grammys, the Emmys, Golden Globe, CMAs, etc.

It's true. I also don't read People Magazine, or know who is married to whom, who is having whose baby, what so-and-so named their baby, who is sleeping with whom or any of that stuff. I have a hard enough time keeping up with my family members and my friends that I have relationships with, so keeping up with strangers is at the very bottom of my interest list.

And I don't watch much TV or go to a whole lot of movies so I'm usually in the dark when it comes to what people are winning prizes for. And the hype! I can't stand hype which is one reason, the main reason, that I don't watch the news.

So I'm probably the last person you'll want to go for information regarding any of these topics.

That being said, if I EVER were to go to a gala event, you can bet your last dollar on the fact that I would not wear anything revealing or scandalous. I believe in a classy look rather than a shock inducer. Here are a few examples of things I might consider if money were of no consequence.

I love the lightness of the fabric and the appliques!And black is always elegant, don't you think?

 This two-toned dress is simple but the shine and weight of the fabric adds a level of lux. Also I like the empire waist to create an illusion of height. We short girls need to think of things like that!
The simplicity of this dress is brought up a notch by two things. The high-low hemline is modern and the bright kelly green is a fun alternative to black.
I love this dress! The flowy fabric is reminiscent of a princess's ballgown, and the periwinkle color is so different! The off-the-shoulder neckline adds a level of sophistication without baring all.

So there you have it. I would be delighted with any of these dresses. Do you notice the similarities, a pattern? My body type looks best with a fit-and-flare dress style. I am not as comfortable in shift dresses or mermaid style (like the one in the background of the above picture.) It's not that I dislike them; I just don't look good in that dress style because I am so short waisted.

What is your favorite fancy-schmancy dress-up dress? Do you watch the various awards? What do you like about them? I really am curious and would love to hear!

Check out the other Style Me Bloggers to see what their take on the subject is!


  1. I usually only watch the red carpet, and now the awards show itself. I love all of these dresses you picked. Fit and flare is such a pretty, flattering cut!

    1. Thanks Lana! I hope you had fun watching the red carpet!

  2. Love those dresses!!!! I'm the same...lots of coverage is what I find appealing.

  3. I always lose my comments here! Not that they were that profound...tee hee hee. You have great taste in gowns. Love all of the dresses you featured above. My fav is the first one. Just beautiful.

    1. I'm sorry Leslie! Thanks for taking the effort of doing it again! I appreciate hearing your comments :)

  4. I'm finding as I get older, my idea of glamorous has changed. I know longer want the sexy look but more a classy more elegant look that passes the rest of time. I love the dresses you chose!

    1. Yes, maturity has way of doing that. Elegance and class needs to be brought back!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I appreciate your thoughts and I thoroughly enjoy reading each one!
