golden globes best in show

Call me picky this year but I was somewhat disappointed by what I saw on the Red Carpet of the Golden Globes. It wasn't that people looked badly, but a certain glow seemed missing from the entire assembly of actors, I felt  like they were some gorgeous gowns, but then some choose to do their own hair and makeup. Some dresses I've seen on the runway before and I'm not calling any names, and some were, yes general disappointments. But of course they were those who are tried and true, and new to the carpet that brought their A-game.

Tried and true was Helen Mirren, outstanding in an emerald green Jen Packham showing off her amazing figure very tastefully.

This new import from Australia, Margot Robbie who starred next to Leonardo DiCaprio in the The Wolf of Wall Street is stunning in this Gucci dress. Her breakout role and her first time on the red carpet received plenty nods and I"m sure we'll be seeing more of her.

Loved Amy Adams dress by Maison Valentino. As a rule red dresses in my opinion clashes too much with the carpet. So even though I'm loving the style; I find myself wishing it was white or blush.

Zoe, Zoe always pushing the envelope, no pun intended in this Parbal Gurung, embellished, off the shoulder, mid-length dress. Love it or hate it, she wears it well.

  1. I also gave the nod to Helen Mirren. Everything worked for her! Ditto for your other comments. I think Amy Adams needed to pay more attention to her hairdo.

  2. I always love Helen Mirren! I actually love Zoe's wild dress - so much going on yet if you step back, it is beautiful!

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

a very happy Christmas to one and all

A very happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all my lovelies and to all peace and joy.
