Wishful Wednesday: Gowns

'I wish' .... I could have worn the gown that Sandra Bullock wore at the 67th Annual Golden Globes Award!


I love, love to 'gown watch' at the awards shows. I don't have much time for tv OR movies, so I usually haven't seen 95% of what's up for awards - but that doesn't matter! I know what dresses I like!
.
And I have to say.... I didn't love the dresses at the Golden Globes this year. Not for me. I'm not sayin' the women didn't look just absolutely gorgeous.... they did! (And that acceptance speach by Mo'nique... one of the few parts I actually watched... so heartfelt, I loved it!)
.
But this wishful Wednesday is the gown I wish I had worn.... and with all the neutrals and washed out colors.... light greys and everythng so beige..... I'd never wear that. I couldn't pull it off! So, I chose some of the only color I could find. (The dress isn't my fav fit, but...) I'm loving the purple.... it's going to stick around, even through next fall (that's what the trend experts at work are tellin' me!) and it's going to get even better! The plums will be plummier.... more royal, more rich.... love it!

Sandra Bullock's dress was certainly a popular one! I think I saw it at least mentioned in every WW post I saw today! She usually chooses well, doesn't she? Great choice!

You have an adorable family by the way! :)

Mr. Fix-It was checkin' in on my blog tonight, I guess... because he just asked me if I really liked her dress.... then told me he heard on the news that the fashion critics gave it a D. ;)

I love that dress too.

I loved her dress too, and the color was so fun. I love to see girls stray away from the norm in gown colors, probably cause I love color!

I just LOVE purple. It's a new love so I'm so glad to hear that it's sticking around for a while!

I LOVED that dress, but oddly wasn't a fan of that purple. Everyone else seemed to really like it though!
