Teal Kitty goes to 21st Annual SAG Awards

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

So yeah, I totally attended the SAG Awards. I can't believe I got to go to such an event and still the entire thing feels so unreal to me. It's so different watching an award show when it's not through a TV screen, and it was soooo LA. Most importantly, the red carpet fashion deserves a double high-five like the emoji. Some of my favorites were: Julianna Marguiles in the most stunning deep cobalt blue gown made by Giambattista Valli,  Rosamund Pike in the most gorgeous black floral dress by Dior Haute Couture, and I LOVED Julie Bowen's dress so much that I personally told her that she looked like a princess. She wore an intricate beaded dress that had the prettiest detailing, I think you need to see it up close to really appreciate it. She told me it was made by Georges Hobeika.

After the award ceremony, there was an after party put on by People Magazine. The award show took place at The Shrine downtown and the after party was under a decadent tent out back; and it looked completely different then the last time I went there (for a Steve Aoki concert many moons ago lol). I would estimate that I ate a total of 12 macarons throughout the night, don't worry I switched up the flavor every time. I had a pleasure of meeting some *~STaRS~* throughout the magical evening. I feel like such a fan girl having all these pictures but yolo idk.   I mean I seriously really am SAG-elligable so I guess that maybe counts for something, right? 

I'm wearing a short dress because the only long dresses I own are prom dresses (ask me how many times I attended prom, that's a good lol) and I can't re-wear those for picture reasons. So I settled with wearing the LBD by Herve Leger, shoes by Isabel Marant, purse by Topshop  and earrings are Kate Spade. Photographed with Naomi Watts, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. 

Take Me to Wildfox! Wildfox Couture Flagship Store Grand Opening 10/16/14

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

To this day, I’ve never read a company’s mission statement that I’m more in love with than the one for Wildfox Couture. “For dreamers, for lovers, for skinny dippers, for barefoot explorers, for late night chocolate eaters, for those who believe in love and themselves.” Wildfox is a whimsical dream; I have always been a fan of their quirky screen tees, legendary ad campaigns and watching their swim show at Miami Fashion Week.

I am SO excited for Wildfox to have their own store and it is conveniently located in the most charming blush colored bungalow located in Sunset Plaza on Sunset Boulevard. I attended the grand opening party of the flagship store last Thursday night, and to my prior knowledge I know that Wildfox parties don’t disappoint.

The party included a sushi bar, complimentary manicures, lavish floral arrangements, a ping-pong table and of course an ice cream truck covered in Swarovski crystals. Red carpet guests included Alessandra Ambrosio (who I haven’t seen since I attended her birthday earlier this year, lol) and Scott Disick (who kindly patted me on the back and said “excuse me”, another lol).

If you were to ask me what my favorite thing about Wildfox is, I would have to say their denim. The Marissa Boyfriend Jeans actually make my heart skip a beat, and the Marianne skinnies are the perfect compliment to any oversized tee. The denim designer, Michelle Siwy, is a dear friend of mine and her creations get more desirable by the minute. She even made overalls! I promise they’re cute.

I’m also so in love with the swim collection. Probably the cutest one pieces, like ever. Roam into the store and see for yourself. My words don’t do justice to how dreamy this place is. And I can’t think of any other adjectives that can describe the store other than dreamy, that’s why I’m so repetitive. Go visit Wildfox, it’s absolutely breathtaking!
