Too Many Dress Choices

Friday means fashion or glamour around here on henning love. I am alternating between the two because frankly, I don't feel my outfits are impressive enough to post each Friday and I don't have enough material for an outfit post each Friday. Since this Friday is fashion, next Friday will be glamour and I have a $50 giveaway for make-up next Friday so be on the look out for that!
With the Oscars coming on Sunday, this Friday Fancies' for sure is Oscar glam.

 Looking up gowns on polyvore, there were too many beautiful choices, like I had a hard time narrowing one just one dress to style. I did manage but I also am posting some alternates I was looking at.
For my Friday's Fancies which I am linking up at over long distance loving, this was my pick!

These two dresses were very second contenders for me to style, ah like I mentioned there are too many beautiful gowns and I definitely had fun with this week's styling theme.

The lovely Caroline Herrera on the left and Monique L'huiller on the right.
Here are a few outfits I have been wearing lately. I posted the orange dress last week but this week I put the green jacket over it.


This was my Pinspiration for the outfit except add boots because it is warm in California but not quite warm enough for bare legs.

Another outfit.
If you read my guest post over at Leeann's blog, Join the Gossip, you will now blouses are my latest fashion must-have! The coral top and the turquoise wrap watch are a must go together combination.
A fun weekend outfit with a cardigan and scarf!

It may not be fashion but I thought it was cute. I gave Kip and Kimbia a rawhide bone yesterday and Kip dropped his within 5 seconds of getting it, rather rare for him. Kimbia snatched his up and was playing keep around from Kip all morning holding both bones in her mouth. It was too funny!

Have a happy Friday and a great weekend friends!

I still love that red dress on you, and even more with the army jacket. And I love Reese! Roll your sleeves next time and you'll look exactly like her!

Oh my goodness. I love those earrings. Jade is the colour of the season and I'm quite excited to see how many celebs will be walking down the red carpet in the colour. It's beautiful ...

I am by no means a fashionista! It takes me 20mins from the time I get out of bed to leaving the house, which should give you an idea of the general state I am in most days. I do appreciate lovely things, though. And I want those earrings.

Happy Weekend.

I love this post, the dresses and outfits so amazing!!

Elizabeth and Kyle @ Love Is the Adventure said...

I love that rich orange right now. So pretty and bright - esp when it's still so gross and cold out (at least, it is here in Ohio!).

Lol, I think my dog would agree that a rawhide is ALWAYS a bold fashion accessory.

Marian said...

A girl can never have too many dresses...there can always be outfit changes at the oscars right;)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

Hehe! Pups are always such a delight to have around. I absolultely love the color combo you put together in that first fashion board. So pretty!!!
