Oscar.

I'm not sure if you know this about me...

...but Awards Season is, perhaps, my most favorite season of the entire year. It helps me get over the post-holiday blues that I often suffer from, even in February. And you probably don't know this about me either, but the Us Weekly and People red carpet issues, the ones that come out post Academy Awards, well... the day they debut on grocery store shelves, I buy a bottle of Martinelli's, draw a bath, and read in silence for hours. It is quite the ritual. In the words of my dear, older sister, Amy (who I'm positive I've adopted this habit from), "I've been doing some extensive research" and have come to this decision: I am going to the Academy Awards next Sunday. 

Okay, no. I'm not.
But if I were a multi-million dollar A-lister, this is the way I would go:

Wearing this sparkly Elie Saab. He is consistently my favorite designer every year. Never lets me down:
This dress is from the brand new 2013 line. And it is lovely.
This natural smoky eye, pulled back hair, and a pale pink lip:
These Jimmy Choos:
I discovered them a few weeks ago and haven't been able to get them out of my head since:
And obviously, my dashing date for the evening would be this guy:

I mean, those dimples, right? 

So, now that I've spent three hours of my life dreaming of dressing for a party I will never be invited to (unless by some miracle, somebody hires me to write a film that by another miracle becomes Oscar nominated... then, I guess I might be invited. Don't laugh. I'm allowed to dream...), I have come up with this great idea:
It has recently come to my attention that there are a whole lot of people who read this blog.
And, it shouldn't come as a surprise to know that I read your blogs, too. 
So,
because this event will be on my mind all week, I would love to read your thoughts on it.
What would you wear to The Academy Awards? 
Please blog it. Get it out of your systems. Do some "extensive-reasearch", and show me the money! 

Ready? GO!
