Oscar Favorites

The 86th annual Academy Awards aired March 2, and we fashionistas only tuned in for the red carpet event. This year, stars picked the right stylist and designers! The red carpet was filled with less gloop and more fabulous! Here's a list of the stars who dressed the part.

Matthew  McConaughey
Dolce and Gabbana
Men are sometimes overlooked in award shows. Matthew looked stunning in this ivory/black suit, and with two lovely ladies on his arms. 
Lupita Nyong'o
Nairobi Blue Prada
Nyong'o is no stranger to stunning. She was the Cinderella of the night. Ditching her form fitting dresses, Lupita was the belle of the ball. 

Johnny Weir
Accessorized with Swarvoski Crystal Loafers by Louis Leeman
All white! Gorgeous! Weir wins best dressed for the guys! 

Amy Adams
Gucci
Simplicity is always the answer. Adams looked beautiful in this navy blue gown. 

Kate Hudson
Versace
By far my favorite from the night, Hudson's dress was captivating! Equipped with a mini cape and plunging V-neck line. Kate was an excellent bridge of sexy and elegant. 

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Will: Berluti Jada: Versace
This duo would look amazing in brown paper bags and brillo pads for shoes. Nothing less than elegance and beauty.  
Angelina Jolie
Elie Saab Haute Couture
Ditching her routinely black/dark look, Jolie was glowing in this beautiful Elie Saab gown.

Shop Underground

With the rise of online shopping, more underground and aspiring fashion designers have begun to flex their muscle with online boutiques. Bigcartel and Etsy are some of the hosting sites for the fashion lover with a big dream and no building. A beautiful thing about online fashion boutiques is one word, uniqueness. 

Instead of running to Forever 21 or H&M to satisfy clothing needs, it's time to support small business and add rarities to our closets. 

Here are two online boutiques/fashion lines that are proving why online underground shopping is the move. 


 Genius Juice Co
Do you have The Juice?
Genius Juice is the newest and hottest streetwear brand, putting on for the south.
I’ve seen this cool brand pop up every day by a different person. The influence of Genius Juice is spreading fast. We’d better pay attention.
The Owner
01a7c6ca922f74ffc42321c5e91d774241d17c474b
Sammy, @SammySky on Instagram, is the epitome of bold and unique. Her style breaks necks.
 01db23773a405011f7e3b73e732c8e6f79e4782b0d
Always chic, fierce, and on point, it makes sense that Genius Juice yields the same results as the CEO.
The Line

Genius Juice is for the classy and the stylish. Those people who aren’t afraid to be confident, those who never let society or anyone in it crush their dreams, or put red tape over their mouth.
According to Sammy, a Genius is fearless, driven and confident.
This line drew my attention with it’s bold yet simple look.
Currently, the line features hats, beanies, tshirts, and crewnecks.
I am excited to see the expansion of this line.
I’ll be ordering a “King Juice ” tshirt” soon as they are restocked. :)
Be Bold. Get the Juice.

1of1sbyJolie
This line first caught my attention two summers ago. When customized shorts first hit the scene,  this line introduced unique designs.
Now expanded, 1of1sbyJolie has chic fashion items to fierce up your closet.

The Line
1of1′s apparel is exotic, colorful, and decorative.  A mix of vintage and uniquely customized pieces, 1of1′s is for the attention grabbers, not seekers.
1of1′s are perfectly chic. Step out of a boring box and get new, edgy fashions.
The Owner

The mastermind behind the fierceness that is 1of1′s, Angelique, is just as fabulous as her clothing line. Mixing sensual, chic, classy, with a dash of edge,

Must Haves for Spring

Fashionistas! Spring is around the corner! (For us Chicagoians, it may be around a couple of corners.) 
It is never too soon to stock up on essential Spring fashions. 

This season, add chic, add relaxed, add STYLE to your wardrobe. 


1. Skorts

This spring, a number one MUST HAVE is a skort! Not your horrid elementary ones either. 

Add a touch of chic sexiness to any outfit with a skort. An oversized tee, slighty tucked, with either ankle boots (or for the ones who like a challenge) toe-strap stilletos, paired with a skort is the perfect spring look. 

Where to Find?

Forever 21 - State St. Location. 
For Chicagoians, Forever 21 on State St. has skorts in every color! 

Only $17.80 :)



2.Bodysuits/Leotards


CCFA Board Member, Marissa Sallie
in black leotard from Charlotte Russe


It's a well known fact that leotards are simply better than regular fitted shirts. Paired with a fitted jersey skirt or even high-waist shorts, Bodysuits/leotards are essential. 

Where to Find?

Bodysuits/Leotards are everywhere! 


American Apparel is the best for leotards. Available at American Apparel for $28.00 


3.Platform Shoes

Platform shoes have been making a creepily quick comeback. With a bit of help from Jeffery Campbell, platform boots, sneakers, and sandals have been the shoe to wear, according to street style. 




Where to find? 

Jeffery Campbell's HOMG sneaker can be found on NastyGal.com

Available for $78.00
