Oscar Quickie 2015

Ah yes, the Oscars. Important things happen here. Dreams getting shattered mostly, and if you’re an actor named Leonardo, you DO NOT win (no matter how much “pretend” cocaine you snort).

Unlike last year’s Oscar Quickie, I made a mild attempt to see all the Academy Award Best Picture Nominees. I watched them alone, which I highly recommend, older men at the theatre feel sorry for you, give you free popcorn and winks!

Who will grab hold of Oscar’s gold nuggets this year? If you’ve missed the Best Picture Nominees, have a look-see at this little Oscar quickie and you’ll be caught up to speed. Speed. Now that’s a good movie.

Enjoy the Oscars amigos!

Pleats, Pumps and Princess Leia

Princess Leia Outfit - The Blonde Jedi

Princess Leia Star Wars

Princess Leia The Blonde Jedi

Jeffrey Campbell Shoes

This outfit, which also could be used at an uppity tennis country club (think Hilary from Fresh Prince), really emphasizes Princess Leia’s personality – she’s tough, classy and not afraid to wear knife pleats.

Searching in the stores for some time, I tried my best to find earrings that really represented the imploding of an entire planet/human race. How did I do? Have your heads exploded?

I opted for this mediocre wrap braid rather than Princess Leia buns which would have ended looking like sad little timbits on my mop.

Have you ever seen a baby deer try to walk before? You can’t walk in these shoes without looking like a drunk with broken knee joints. On the plus side, they’re awesome if you want to cause blunt force injuries to someone’s face.
