Golden Globes FSU!’s: 5 Loveliest dressed(in order)!

Gorgeous. This blush ROBERTO CAVALLI mermaid style gown was a great pick for Kate Beckinsdale. She is almost always a red carpet phenom and very rarely misses the mark when it comes to sophisticated, elegant Hollywood glam.

Emma Stone comes across as the smart girl-next-door chick. With a wine and red silk chiffon LANVIN gown Emma is giving out sultry red carpet mystery. This is a daring choice especially with the leather belt as that type of accessory can often take a formal look down a notch. Here the leather belt with the detail is very enchanting and it works well her smoky eyes and fiery red locks.

Dianna Argon also makes a bold statement wearing one of my favourite designers GILES DEACON. There an element of sophistication with the amazing details in the bust area. I'm never a huge fan of her red carpet style but she was stunning and not everyone looks that good in red.

Bombshell. Surprisingly enough this shimmering black and gold number just screamed of the GUCCI brand and who better to wear it other than a bombshell herself Salma Hayek. This is one of those dresses that would look flattering on a number of body types and the busty lady did well not to over embellish and let her curves do the talking.

Jlie Bowen is not a person whom I consider a style maven and to be honest in this picture her makeup is a little witchy weird but the dress is divine. REEM ACRA did well with this in fact i can see it in white or ivory and would think what a beautiful wedding gown. I would certainly consider it. I wasn't a big fan of seeing nude tones but this was a beautiful dress.

HONOURABLE MENTION: Octavia Spencer wore a very flattering TADASHI SHOJI gown and Melissa McCarthy could really find out who her stylist is because it is tres flattering to her figure.

My first shopping experience on FARFETCH.com. #truestory

I love when amazing e-commerce sites are brought to my attention but I never trust a site until I personally peruse and shop for myself.

This should be of note: shopping is not usually something that I pass up. I’m easily excited by shopping in an unusual way and Farfetch offers enough great pieces to pacify me.

Now at first I wasn’t sure how to navigate it but I found out that the learning curve is actually pretty easy. I like to think of Farfetch as an online global fashion mall. Simple, no? Women fashion was the best way for me to start browsing. Now just like a mall there are departments. Well Farfetch makes it way with just three…

LUXE

This section is my favourite department for all of the obvious reasons…Emilio Pucci! Hello? Proenza Schouler’s amazing PS-1 bags, Burberry coats, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Nina Ricci, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana great luxe pieces are wonderfully edited into this section. You can find a selection of vintage and archived apparel and accessories from just about every uber-cool and specially selected high-end store across the world. Imagine vintage and this season’s Chanel shopping can be done in one place! It really doesn’t get anymore convenient. As a shopper who hates travelling from e-store to e-store to find that perfect item. Farfetch does it amazingly in a one stop shop and knowing that if I can’t get it the United Kingdom that Farfetch will have that item and ready to ship from Brussels. Where can you find that kind of high fashion global supply chain network? Nowhere, so look at some great pieces I selected below.

My Next Purchase!

CONTEMPORARY

I’m by nature a huge supporter of Contemporary brands they take a bit more risks at better prices than their luxury counterparts. A great example of this is Marc by Marc Jacobs’ diffusion line which is way more suited to my tastes than the Marc Jacobs label. I can equally appreciate both but I prefer to purchase MBMJ clothing and I adore their accessories. Farfetch let’s me go straight to the good stuff in the Contemporary department. Not only can I find my fave diffusion label I can also find other cool labels like Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Tucker, Closed, Ksubi, Eugenia Kim, 7 For All Mankind, Siwy Denim, Fred Perry and Tory Burch. This department is your jeans emporium and you will find most high-end denim labels in Contemporary. I left you with a few of my favourite pieces to look over below.

LAB

The Lab department is where you pick up your heart’s content of specialty pieces by brands that really are out of this world. The vision of the designers in this category is not necessarily commercial but definitely wearable. Farfetch’s Lab is compiled of perfect statement pieces and I’m totally obsessed with an amazing pair of Ha-Yeon Lee monkey nuts pictured below. It would be the quirky update to any outfit for a little bit of humour and style. I highly recommend that purchase.

All of your emerging fashion talent can be found in this section. I put together a montage of some of the pieces I would LOOOOVE to have and a few for the men too.

It was a such a treat discovering this site. So for my first purchase I went small super-small because I don’t know what shipping nightmare I might encounter and bought this super cute yet really affordable Baggu  Mociun reusable shopper.

It folds into a really cute portable pouch and is perfect for the grocery store or casual shopping. Luckily the entire process was easy-peasy and my bag will be shipped to me in a few days and as soon it is I have a surprise! I like to think of it as a symbolic purchase with Farfetch and represents my intent to continue shopping there for many years to come! I take my fashion that seriously.
