Oscar Watch Party

Because I had so much fun creating an Oscar Fashion lovely last week and because my shopping ban is still in effect for fourteen more days, I decided to create another Friday's Fancies and share it with you all.

This time I created an outfit that I would love to wear to the Oscar Watch Party Ashlee and JY are having at their casa on Sunday.

J and I are bringing True Grit jalapeno cornbread as well as 127 Hours' Water and Mountain Dew.  With our offerings, I'd wear:

A ruffled cream skirt with brown belt for a little girly yet rustic look
A three-quarter length pink top with a large bow at the collar--it is still a bit cold here, you know
Some powder beige matte ankle booties with a cream ribbon for some Hollywood drama
A dark brown coat with a full skirt, perfect for making our grand entrance
A cool mint purse for taking home all the swag
A vintage mint cocktail ring for a splash of color and old school sophistication
Smoky quartz earrings for a little sparkle and shine

Are you going to watch the Oscars?  Who's your pick for Best Picture?  Best Actor? Best Actress?  Can't wait to see who's right on Monday!


  1. I love those earrings and that mint colored bag! I love these colors together!!

  2. The King's Speech was my fav of the season, even though I haven't seen 127 hours yet, so I really want that to win. I heart the Oscars--even though I will probably get bored after an hour, turn the channel, and then turn back for the good stuff:)

  3. Love the bag. It reminds me of Spring. Happy Weekend KT!

  4. @ Jana: Thanks! I have been seeing mint everywhere and loving it. Once my shopping ban is over, I think I might have to really buy something in that color :)

    @ Mrs. Z(ed): I loved The King's Speech, such a great cast! I totally hear you on the Oscars. I wish we could fast forward through live shows like you can with tivoed ones because I'm pretty sure I'd skip through some of the boring parts of awards shows!

    @ Ashly: Thanks! Spring can't come soon enough in my opinion :) Happy weekend to you too!

  5. Kind of victorian with a twist!

  6. Love the colors! The jacket is amazing.

  7. What a fun outfit. Especially love the color combo!

  8. LOVE the color palette. amazing.

  9. Love it! I'll probably watch if the hubs doesn't hijack the remote like he did for all the other award shows


    Jenn @ Peas & Crayons

    @ Megan: Thanks! Hope you have a great weekend!

    @ Jenn: oh boo, I can relate: J always changes the channel when I'm watching my trashy TV like Teen Mom and Kourtney and Kim Take New York--I like those shows, why can't he ;)

    @ Fashion Meets Food: Thanks so much for stopping by!

  12. Love it love it.

    The crochet skirt is absolutely my favorite!!!

    I think I'm going to watch it and have a couple of friends over. Won't be dressing up, but we'll have fun times!

  13. sigh. I want to come to your Oscars partyyyyyyy! This outfit is gorgeous and I love the mix of "mint" green and peach. It's just beautiful! So happy to have you linking up with Friday's Fancies! xoxo {av}

  14. I love this whole outfit ... but that purse? WOAH! Amazing!

    I am totally watching to Oscars ... or at least the first half before I fall asleep on the couch ;)

  15. Beautiful clothing picks! I love the feminine feel to it all! Enjoy your weekend! :)

  16. hahaha so funny "True Grit jalapeno cornbread as well as 127 Hours' Water and Mountain Dew"

  18. I love that skirt, and only $22!!!

  19. @ StarletStarlet: Sounds like a good time to me!

    @ Jenn: I totally hear you on that one! I could hardly stay awake when I watched it on the West Coast, let alone the Midwest :)

    @ Courtney: Thanks! Hope you are having a good weekend as well!

    @ Ms_SyllyBee: My friend Ashlee is very clever. She came up with all the names, I just get to bring some of it :)

    @ Marian: I think the coat and purse would be the two items I would buy myself in a dream world! Have a great weekend!!

    @ Victoria: I have to admit I don't even look at prices when I put these together, mainly because most of them are such fantasies but that skirt, I may actually have to buy that :)

  20. i wish i could watch the oscars but they don't show it here in italy! i'll have to stream it tomorrow, sad. :(
    ohmygosh lemon and olive oil muffins?! do you think you could send me the recipe? that sounds like an amazing combination!

  21. That coat is absolutely divine. And I love the earrings! Nice choices.

  22. @ marissa: Bummer! The stream from the red carpet would definitely be worth watching with all the beautiful dresses but as for the rest, I'd just read about it online :) Didn't miss too much there! I posted the lemon-olive oil recipe just now and will email you the link too!

    @ Oonafey: Thanks! I really, really want that coat :)
