My best Dressed list!

I spent most of the weekend working on my craft show booth which I think I have finally worked out for this year's Strange Folk display. I have everything painted in my earth tones and I still have paint smudges on my hands and feet. Yes, I paint barefoot. I promise to share pictures tomorrow.

Last night as I was painting the last of my Styrofoam heads I saw the stunning Rutina Wesley above from the show True Blood rocking her handpainted dress from designer Douglas Hannant. Mike and I have this show on our Netflix que but since we are right in the middle of Mad Man currently it will be awhile. With his attention span we can only watch one series at a time.

I also really liked her costar Carrie Preston's look below. She has my current hair color and she's not afraid to wear a bold custom made print from Japanese designer Makoto Takada. I love everything about her look from the hair to simple shoes. I actually found both of these looks on a lot of the worst dressed lists which says a lot about my fashion sense compared to the "authorities" in the fashion world. I love when someone wears something that was made just for them and shows their individual style whether it be a student in my office or on the red carpet.

I prefer watching the Emmys over the Oscars since I actually have seen most of the shows unlike the Oscar nominated movies. And I think the fashion tends to be more diverse and accessible. Did you have any favorites from this year's emmy awards?

Ahh, I agreed with you- I thought Carrie Preston's dress was just lovely- ESPECIALLY with her hair color. Joan Rivers and Khloe Kardashian and all those peeps over at E! and everywhere else can go suck eggs. They themselves wear some pretty questionable outfits sometimes. ;)

I don't watch much tv so I miss all the awards shows. Generally though I don't really care for much of the so called hottest fashions. I guess I'm too much of a jeans and tshirt kind of girl :) I just find it insane that people will pay the amount of money for one of those designer dresses and it gets worn once. f

I love Rutina's dress! It's so different, and this is the best I've seen her look yet!

We're in the middle of Mad Men over here too! :)

I agree- I think it's more special when they wear something personal and unique like this. Maybe not as fashion forward, but their own. I actually do think the first one is quite fashionable, but what do I know?

I don't follow trends at all, and I'm well aware that 'my look' which is a mix of vintage 70s/girly/indie will not make it onto any list!hahaha.
Thank goodness I don't take fashion that seriously. Have fun with it, is what I'd say...
