Dressing Like The Stars: Golden Globes 2017 Edition

Do you ever watch awards shows and wish you could wear your favorite celeb’s dress? I know I do. Even if the only red carpet you walk on is in your living room, we can all be inspired by celeb style. Here are some of the most talked about looks from the 2017 Golden Globe awards along with similar dresses. While they aren’t exact dupes, some are pretty darn close. But, whether you are going to a wedding, party or simply the opening of an envelope, there isn’t one dress here you won’t feel fabulous in. Seriously, prepare for jaws to drop when the paparazzi spots you. And by paparazzi, I mean your friends who take too many selfies. 

Sparkle Like Emma Stone

A star in stars, Emma Stone's Valentino dress was one of the most talked about looks of the Golden Globes. Here are some similar dresses that show you don't have to be a movie star to pull off the star dress look.

Blush Jupiter Dress by Privacy Please

Krause Dress by Privacy Please.

Stars Tulle Dress by Mango.

Madeline dress by X By NBD.

Ruffle Critics Like Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood's pink Iris Serban dress was considered a fashion risk.  In my option, it was one worth taking. Here are two dresses guaranteed to ruffle even the toughest critic (your mom or BFF). 

Sleeveless Ruffle Dress by MSGM and Sleeveless Ruffle Trim Gown by Jovani.

Plunge Into Style Like Kristen Bell and Mandy Moore

Both Kristen Bell in Jenny Packham and Mandy Moore in Naeem Khan plunged onto the best dressed lists with daring necklines. Dare to wear these sexy black dresses.

One Shoulder Drape Midi Dress by ASOS and Kassidy Pleated Crepon Maxi Dress by Alice + Olivia.

Look Pretty In Purple Like Hailee Steinfeld and Chrissy Metz

Hailee Steinfeld's Vera Wang dress was my favorite look of the evening. Chrissy Metz also wore a purple dress, in a dark, sophisticated amethyst shade designed by Nathan Paul. Whether you are vying for a violet dress dress like Hailee's or a deeper color like Chrissy's, there are plenty of choices. 

Aliki Illusion Yoke Tulle Halter Gown by Amsale.

V-Neck Gown by Monique Lhuillier

F- It Fridays: Your Weekly Dose Of Retail Therapy: (Holiday Gifts Under $25 Edition)

F- It Fridays are back! So, normally this column is about buying things for yourself, but that's kind of hard during the holidays. We all know it's better to give than receive, so here are some of my favorite gifts under $25. Give them to your friends, family, lovers or those people you pretend you like and must give an obligatory gift to. Or just shop for yourself. I won't tell anyone if you do.

Go Comb

 

The Go Comb is an affordable gift for everyone your list. For just $21.99, you get a cusomizable comb with a mirror on the back. It fits in any wallet, cosmetics case, back pocket or secret beauty stash. I can't think of one person who wouldn't be happy to receive this gift. It actually works for pretty much everyone on your list, except for bald people. 

Goodies From Shop Miss A

 

Shop Miss A is a glam girl's dream dollar store. With a selection of everything from adorable hair accessories like this Fuzzy Pom-Pom Headband to infinity scarves, makeup pouches and more. Because most items are just a buck, don't hesitate to treat yourself or pick up extra stocking stuffers. 

Christian Lacroix Ombré Notebook

While you thought the only Lacroix you could shell out for was the sparkling water, it turns out you're wrong. Christian Lacroix (totally unrelated to the water company, by the way) has an affordably chic ombré notebook. Use it to write down goals, new years resolutions, what you're grateful for, or to compose mean haikus. No matter what you write, you'll be doing it in style.

Philosophy The Gift Of Glowing Skin Set

Usually $25 doesn't get you much when it comes to skincare, but not The Gift Of Glowing Skin by Philosophy. It has a travel size Purity Face Wash, Microdelivery Exfoliating Water, Renewed Hope in a Jar and a Hands of Hope Cream worth $63. Now that's a philosophy we can all subscribe to. 

Michael Aram Rock Jigger

 

Michael Aram makes such beautiful, sophisticated collectables and this rock jigger is no exception. A perfect gift for the cocktail connoisseur or budding mixologist, it stands out on it's own or to upgrade that bottle of liquor you planned on re-gifting this year.
