Dress

Must Have Maxi from DEMURE

Happy Friday!! If you’re subscribed to my blog, you already saw a few of these photos when I accidentally hit PUBLISH Monday night while I was putting this post together. Oh my gosh, I almost had a heart attack. I knew this would happen to me one day, there have been so many close calls – I feel like the publish button is placed in the worst spot EVER on the WordPress dashboard! Oh well, life happens!

Anyways, on to this fabulous dress! The moment I saw Demure announce that they were going to be carrying this maxi this Summer, I knew I needed it. I fell in love the moment I saw it. This beauty arrived about two weeks ago, and rainy CT weather prevented me from snapping the beautiful, sunny photos it deserved. Luckily, Monday was a (sweltering hot, but) beautiful day and my sister nailed the shots!

Easter Sunday Style

Easter week continues on amanda-bella!

Growing up, Easter was the one holiday that we’d all get to wear a fabulous new outfit. A fancy dress, tights, big hat, gloves, shiny shoes – the whole nine.

Either the Easter bunny was really good to me, or I was pretty excited about this outfit. Wow. LOL

2014 Emmy Fashion Favorites

Back to back red carpets?! What a fun treat to make my first week back from vacation a little more exciting [vaca post in the works]!

I posted my faves and fails of the VMA fashion on Monday & couldn’t help but whip up another blog for the swoon-worthy Emmy looks as well.

First off, my least favorite:

I'm SO SORRY Lena, I love you. You're brilliant. Your dress hurts my heart.

My most FAVORITE look of the night came from Modern Family actress, Sarah Hyland.

I couldn’t stop googling pictures of her on the red carpet! The dress, the colors, the hair, jewels, makeup, polish, everything – stunning. I’d wear this entire ensemble in a heartbeat!! Perfection!
Even if she did have a shoe meltdown. Girl after my own heart, I could see myself freaking out & doing the same. It was kind of funny -read about it here.

Another note-worthy contender for Best Dressed goes to Julia Roberts.

A) She's glowing. B) Her dress is such a healthy balance of style, class, and youth. C) Her legs are insane.

There was so much fabulousness at the Emmys, it put the VMA’s to shame!

2013 CMA Fashion!

Who watched the CMA’s last night?! I worked my way down the red carpet noting some of my favorite & not-so-fave looks from 2013 Country Music Awards – check them out 🙂

Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood –  H U M A N – P E R F E C T I O N .  Always.
Jana Kramer
Jana Kramer. I have mixed feelings about this dress. She’s such a beautiful girl, and can really pull off anything, but this outfit feel’s so dark & winter-y. Not my favorite, but I’m sure she was at least comfortable!
Kacey Musgraves. Not sure how I'm feeling about this dress, I wish it were just a mini - I don't think that the extra sheer fabric was necessary.

Miranda Lambert. Girl is bringing the color! She's definitely lost a little weight as well, she looks amazing.

Kellie Pickler.  I LOVE her in this dress. She looks so vampy & sexy. Such a flattering fit!

Taylor Swift. She looks flawless, but this is not my favorite look.
Taylor Swift. She looks flawless, but this is not my favorite. The dress ages her a bit, and I swear I thought she was rocking a mullet at first glance.
Lucy Hale. I think there's too much nude, she looks washed out, and the dress looks kind of heavy on her.
Lucy Hale. I think there’s too much nude, she looks washed out, and the dress weighs her down a bit. Excited to hear she’s coming out with a country album though!
Cassadee Pope. Fabulous fit & the straightest, shiniest hair EVER!

Jennifer Nettles. I'm seeing a trend. Refer to Carrie Underwood & Kacey Musgraves - I think that all of these dresses should have just stopped mid thigh.

Faith Hill. I don't think anyone ages as graceful as this woman! I would have loved to see some long curls on her though!

Kimberly - The Band Perry. Okay, this dress definitely looks like a curtain, but for some reason, I'm LOVING it! Not to mention, her hair and makeup looks so fresh!

Carrie Underwood's wardrobe changes. Source.
Carrie Underwood Wardrobe Changes Part 1. (1) The high waisted slacks & crop top was cute & she pulled it off. (2) I didn’t care for the pink floral gown live, but I’m liking it a bit more in pictures. (3) The red carpet dress & HMU was an overall win for me! (4)  The monologue outfit seemed so heavy & sloppy, but I can’t even rag on this woman, when you’re as classy as her & have those legs you can wear whatever you want lol. Source.

Carrie Underwood’s wardrobe changes Part  2. It’s hard for her to do wrong in my eyes, but she could have done much better. Out of the above, I liked her performance outfit & wavy locks (2)  and the metallic gown & chignon (3)  best.  Source.

I think that Kellie Pickler may have been my hands-down favorite of the night!

What are your favorite looks from the CMA’s this year?
