My favorite red carpet looks: 2014 Oscars

I can't let the award season pass by without mentioning the Oscars. I love that the Oscars ceremony is where you get to see celebrities at their most glamorous. Here are some of my favorite fashions from the award ceremony's red carpet.

My favorite of the night was definitely Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace. She looked flawless from head to toe and I was really surprised by her choice for the night.

In close second to Kate Hudson, Charlize Theron looked the perfect amount of sultry in a dress by Dior.

One of my favorite couples, Dax Shepard & Kristen Bell, cleaned up very well. Dax wore a John Varvatos suit and Kristen a Roberto Cavalli gown.

Cleveland Chic: Rebecca Ray Designs.

Cleveland is not the first place someone would think has a fashion community, but that is starting to change. Over next few months I want to introduce you to some of my favorite local companies that deserve some recognition. It is amazing what you can find where you live when you do a little digging.
The first company you can feast your eyes on is Rebecca Ray Designs. Rebecca Ray Designs is an equestrian inspired handbag, accessory, and home goods company headquartered in Chargin Falls, Ohio. The company prides itself in making everything here in the United States. Not only are the products made in the United States, but they are handcrafted with care by the local Amish community. You can find the full Rebecca Ray product line on their website but if you are lucky it might be sold in a store near you.

Now I know what you all really want to see... the goods. Here are few pieces that make me feel like saddling up.  
While I know we are all looking forward to spring the reality is a lot of us are living in black. This cognac bit cuff would look great paired with an all black ensemble and stacked with a few delicate gold bracelets.  
This supple chocolate brown Daphne Bucket Tote is big enough to hold everything you need while keeping you effortlessly stylish. The best part is the shape of the bag is so classic that you won't regret buying it in six months.
The Maryann Duffel will stand out in a sea of boring carry-on bags. The bag's bold color and graphic adds interest to what could have been a boring duffel.
I don't know what I love more about the Julie Tote the large anchor print or the hint of lime on the handles. It's the perfect bag to bring to Lake Erie on a sunny day to enjoy the view of the Lighthouse.

With all my heart,
Vanessa

My favorite red carpet looks: 2014 Grammys

I love watching all the red carpet fashion coverage but I don't love how some media outlets tear women down. Most people set out to look their best and we all miss the mark. So I'm going to talk about who nailed it and leave the haterade at the door. On that note let's talk about Grammys fashion... the award show... not your grandma's fashion... you get the idea.

Chrissy Teigen, who recently wed John Legend, wore a impeccably fitted Johanna Johnson gown. If this girl is not on the top everyone's best dressed list then the fashion world has gone mad.

Kacey Musgraves wowed on her first red carpet in this frothy Armani Prive confection.

I loved that Kelly Osbourne's Badgley Mischka dress which was inspired by her father. This is my favorite dress I've seen her wear on the red carpet.

 My best dressed couple of the night was Gary Clark & Nicole Trunfio. Gary has great eye for style and Nicole's dress was amazing. The belt accentuated her waist and the sleeves had the perfect amount of volume.

 I can't go without mentioning the lovely Katy Perry who wore a musical inspired Valentino pick.

Apparently I was really drawn to all the shine and sparkle at the Grammys. I was expecting to see some more daring outfits but it seemed like a lot of ladies were playing safe and sparkly. What were your favorite looks from the Grammys?

With all my heart,
Vanessa
