Award Glamour – If I Was A Rich Girl

Awards season is over for another year. I am in awe of the beautiful dresses each and every year and the build up of ceremonies leading up to the glamorous Oscars never fails to capture my imagination. It leaves me day dreaming of what exactly I would wear walking the red carpet and collecting my award. Angelina totally rocked at the BAFTAS! I would love to pull something off as bold and strong but in honesty I think I would cave at the wonder of beautiful gowns my stylist would pick out for me – Kate Hudson wearing Versace I’m looking at yoouu! I had a flurry of beautiful way out of my budget P.O.A pictures of gowns to put up in this day dream rich girl post. Then a stumbled across Carolyn Baxter. I would like to think that no matter how rich I was I would still support local and independent businesses. The Shoes on the other hand! well that’s something else.
