EV-ERY-ONE is talking about last night's Academy Awards.  It just wouldn't be right if we didn't put our two cents in, now would it.  Special thanks & love to those who joined us on Twitter for our live tweets during the Oscars!
Here's quick run down of my picks for the stand out moments and looks of the night - we've got 'em.  (Drum roll, please.)

Best Dressed: Michelle Williams in a coral Louis Vuitton gown with a side-jeweled bow and peplum - a trend you'll want to get in on this Spring.

Best Cape: Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford - if any one could pull off a cape on the red carpet - it's her, and she did right by Mr. Ford.

Best Red Carpet Stunt: Sacha Baron Cohen's Dictator alter ego pours "ashes" on Ryan Seacrest during a red carpet interview

Best Fashion Tape: Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad knows how to wow on the red carpet - one sneeze and it would've been a Janet Jackson situation. 

Best Red Carpet Pose: Angelina Jolie - that high slit in her black velvet gown was hard to miss with her right leg-featured pose.  I believe it'll be a new pose trend (like tebowing)

Best Presenter: Emma Stone (in Giambattista Valli) milking her first award presenting moment - even invited Jonah Hill up to the stage to dance.

Best Presenter Entrance: Will Ferrell & Zach Galifianakis in all white tuxedos crashing symbols in front of Brangelina before marching up to stage - hilarious

Best BFF: Busy Philipps was stunning with her BFF, Michelle Williams.  We adore celebrity BFFs :)

Do you have an Oscar award I might have missed?  Let me know in the comments!

celebs & sparkle, 

If you've watched Season 1 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, then you must have seen these beautiful emerald crystal tear drop earrings! Kyle Richards, one of the housewives that stars on the show has been seen wearing these absolutely gorgeous earrings. Angelina Jolie wore a very similar set to the Oscars in 2009. Both women are absolutely beautiful and these earrings are just stunning!
Kyle Richards' earrings are by Kenneth Jay Lane and are approximately $150. Angelina Jolie's earrings are by Lorraine Schwartz and are a whopping $2.5M.

The sky was grey and the roads were wet but I was brave enough to jump out the house and go boutique hopping today. I stopped by Francesca's a local boutique and came across these. I've been on the hunt for an affordable set of emerald tear drop earrings and lucky for me today was the day. I might just end up buying the same set that Kyle has, but for now these will do! This set of earrings only cost me $18! I love a fab find- don't you?!
