Oscars Viewing Party

Award season is always exciting for bloggers. Your newsfeed goes haywire with kind and cruel comments and critiques. Your best dressed list must be up before the show starts. And let’s be honest, we only stick through the whole show to watch how amazing Ellen Degeneres is.
This Oscars we are throwing our own viewing party (details above), and included all the essentials: an awesome DJ, truffle popcorn, a ballot contest, and of course a full bar of festivities. If you’re watching from home, we have some fun suggestions:
1) Dress up in a gown. Even if it’s your old prom dress that you saved for no apparent reason. Dress-up is always an interactive MUST.
2) Place bets. Whoever gets the most correct can accept their own makeshift Oscar. Speech, speech!
3) Follow @WanderLustGirls for our Fashion and Beauty favs.
3) Whip up some super special cocktails. I’m looking at all you “vodka soda” drinkers out there. It’s a special event, let’s get creative:

“The Royal Brunch”
• 1 oz. Baileys® Vanilla Cinnamon
• 0.5 oz. Crown Royal® Maple Finished Whisky
• 3 blueberries on cocktail pick
• Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a shot glass.
“Baileys Irish Cream. Stay Stylish. Drink Responsibly.”

The Blonds

Always the grand finale… The Blonds. Keeping it theme oriented, we’re always anxious to know what the models will stomp out in. This season was inspired by cats. We loved the city blazer and pants, and the graffiti skirt. Couldn’t get over how badass the wigs were. Thanks for the closer show, David and Phillipe!

Art Institute

Honestly, The Art Institute runway is always a spectacle. The top designers from AI schools around the country are flown to NYC, and debut a capsule collection. We were instantly smitten with several of the designs, starting with reds, and ending with our friend Michael Doyle’s all-black ensembles. Hard to pick a fav look out of all of these, but what’s yours?!

Ohne Titel

This is our first time seeing the Ohne Titel collection, and we were in awe of how wearable and comfortable it all was, while still being completely badass. This is what we call color palette success… black, white, burgundy, and blue. Oh, and let’s not ignore those metal-esque thigh-highs. Holy moly. Fell very in love with a lot of these pieces. Especially that half leather sweater. Dope.
