Sweet Things Under $20

Hello everyone, how are you all this Monday? Did you get to watch the Oscars last night? Any favorite red carpet dresses?

I have to say my favorite, by far, was Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford white cape and dress. It was simple and chic, and I love that she kept her jewelry, hair and make-up all fairly simple. It just looked really refreshing to me and quite effortlessly stunning if you ask me!

I think that was probably the key that made her stood out last night. And it’s such an easy look to replicate for the everyday girl like us too, don’t you think? I’m thinking you can easily pull off this look like this white dress by Black Halo that Katie recommended from her post yesterday. She really got it spot on about the new rules of wearing white. I’m pretty sure I want to try this look out very soon. :)

Have a great day and hope you enjoy this week’s $20 picks!

    Yay, I want the Paris vs. NY book!!! Have a happy Monday!!

  • I agree, I thought Gwyneth killed it last night!  I bought Paris vs. New York as a birthday present for a friend and now I want it for myself!   Also, love that sweater from Zara- such a pretty color :)

  • That sweater is amazing! What a steal!

  • i want that mint sweater!! hope you had a great weekend :)

  • I have a crush on those pencils. Yes it’s probably weird to crush on writing implements but I can’t help myself :)

    I like the braclet Jeanne, and I think the floral dish towel is to die for. I have something with tea towel and dish towel, I don’t know why I like to collect them hahaha….

    For the Oscar, I agreed with you Gweneth looked so sweet and simple. I also love Octavia Spencer gown, the cutting really suits her curve. And the fun dress of Natalie Portman, red polkadot :)

  • Always look forward to the sweet things under 20, there is always something I want to get! This week it’s totally that Zara sweater, what a great steal!
