Stay informed, chirplettes:

And please read this article if you have 2 minutes. People don't realize how extensive the injuries go when states enact certain bills, and we need to continuously keep up with what's going on in our world. We absolutely cannot allow these kinds of things to happen, and I hate feeling ashamed of my state.

Love you all :)

My dear friends...and some navy :)

Well even without the Miu Miu pumps, I managed to get a 100% on my Psychology test! Thank you, less stellar but still awesome Boutique 9's.

I've been a wee bit stressed with work and school, and so my blogging has obviously suffered. You should see my coffee table; overflowing with Vanity Fairs and Harper's Bazaars that haven't even been opened! For shame, Natalie, for shame. When my new Elle Decor came in yesterday, I fairly unceremoniously plopped it on top of the still cellophane'd March Vanity Fair, but then did a double take. I'm sure I've mentioned it on here before, but I'm just dying to get a new couch, and I'm set on having a navy velvet one. Our old light blue couch was pretty in its heyday, but it's now a very sad little sofa that needs to cash in its 401k.

Apparently I'm trés on trend with my navy hankering! I didn't know if the look had run its course by now. Not that I really care, honestly; if I still like the look then "in style" be darned.

So pretty.

This means I'll be a little behind by the time Joseph and I actually purchase our navy velvet couch, but still- I was all sortsa pumped, and Joseph totally squee'd.

Fine. He didn't squee. But I do think he glanced from the computer to the magazine, which is definitely something!

And speaking of slightly behind the times (but who cares), I'd probably need these last season Nicholas Kirkwoods to match the couch:

I prefer to associate "last season" with "more affordable" rather than "no longer cool". Don't you?

tests! and pumps!

Lack o' posting due to a test I have to take today; my apologies, chirplettes!

I'm sure I could pass said test if I had worn these Miu Miu's today:

Be still my heart. via

Do you have an extra pair in a 6.5 or a 7 I can steal borrow?

Wrapping up!

Since I had to miss posting yesterday as a result of an all-day "customer service training" work, you get multiple pretty people to ogle today. I'm not usually a big fan of strapless dresses, but the neckline makes a couple of appearances on my best-dressed list.

Rounding out my favorites list from this year's Oscars are:

Jessica Chastain (that's my middle name!) in Alexander McQueen:

Although it was perhaps a tad bit matronly for her, and also quite reminiscent of Blair Waldorf's Marchesa prom dress:

Blair Waldorf ALWAYS gets there first. I love her. But I also love Chastain's McQueen.

I also love navy, so Leslie Mann's Cavalli completely wow'd me:

She looks perfect. The end.

Speaking of perfection, Nina Dobrev in structural J. Mendel:

Dang that girl is gorgeous. I like the Renaissance-y hair with the sleek gown, too.

And finally, another white gown, and my absolute favorite of the night: Milla Jovovich in Elie Saab:

As the kids say, daaaayum.

Whoops! Robert you Gucci-clad cad, where did you come from?
