outfit // award show inspired

February 23, 2015

I always love watching the big award shows. It is common tradition with my friends and me that we do our weekly Sunday Night Dinners as part of a viewing party and it is so much fun. We get to experience each other’s commentary (Taylor is always good for a laugh.) And we tune-in to the red carpet to take in all the fashion. I personally always love seeing the gowns but also the accessories.


Personally, I’ve always been a shoe girl so I look forward to finding out in the days following big award shows what were on stars feet (hiding under those dresses!). So when DSW asked me to share how to incorporate Oscars-inspired fashion into my life, I jumped at the chance to style a pair of shoes.


While the Oscars of course have major dress moments, some of my favorite looks from the red carpet have been menswear-inspired. Gwen Stefani in her Grammys jumper, Emma Stone at the Golden Globes and Anna Kendrick’s amazing tuxedo moment also at the Grammys.

So I styled a favorite pair of leather leggings with a black blouse and let my shoes make the statement. How fun are these pink Aldo pumps? Not only are they the perfect pop of pink for any outfit, but they are comfortable as well.


DSW has long been a source for me to find deals on designer brands that I love. A true source for shoe lovers like myself. When I got my license I used to drive over to my nearest location and just peruse the shoes. I’d dream of owning a pair of Jimmy Choos and also always stopped by DSW when in need of a special-occasion pair like my high school graduation. My mom taught me the thrill of getting a good deal on something so it was such fun to work on this post with DSW – a brand I’ve loved for a very long time.

    1. I used to do the same thing! DSW was a destination point for me all the way through law school. Need a break? Shop for shoes!

    2. I used to love doing Oscar parties with friends in high school and college – now it feels like Sunday nights are made for catching up before the week starts! Maybe next year I’ll try to host one again, ballots and little candies and everything.
