Happy Thursday everyone! This week was definitely a quick week but I am excited for the weekend, although, I'm not doing anything special. The weather in the tri-state area has been cold, cold, and did I mention cold? We have been hitting single digit temperatures which can feel like below zero with the wind shield. With that being said, I have been wearing heavy, chunky knit sweaters and thick pants to get me through the week. Oxfords are not ideal for this weather being that the ankles are exposed; but, I have been wearing comfy UGGs to travel in and changing my shoes when I get to work. The sweater that is featured in this post is everything. It is fun, dressy, comfortable, and work appropriate. Today everyone asked me where they can purchase the sweater and my response was that I wasn't sure. I bought this at the Tory Burch sample sale last season for about $12 (record breaking, I know). Ever since, I haven't seen anything like the sweater I am wearing. Although, after doing some research I did find similar styles that are shown below; warning: some are a bit pricey. Being that the sweater is a bold statement in itself with the amazing detail on the sleeve, I decided to go with a leather pant and patent leather oxfords. To top of this look I didn't wear any jewelry, but the top knot and pop of red on the lip worked just fine!

Also, don't forget to visit Lanadel, because you get a discount with my special code. Treat yourself ladies and use the code "fashionkay" to receive $10 off of your purchase!

2015 best dressed oscar picks

GUYS! Please tell me that you absolutely died over the looks that walked the Red Carpet last night? There were so many looks that I absolutely loved, which led me to writing this post of my 2015 Oscar picks! Continue reading below to find out why :)
Giuliana Rancic in Mireille Dagher 
Giuliana always looks good. She always knows what to wear, when to wear it, and how to wear it. She is quite the fashionista and I love following her to see what she is wearing on a day to day basis. 
Jamie Chung in Yaina Couture 
Jamie never disappoints. She looks stunning this full, nude and navy gown with embellishments. 
Anna Kendrick in Thakoon
I believe this is one of Anna Kendrick's best looks to date. As Giuliana mentioned on Live from the Red Carpet, she normally wears black, so it is great to see her in another color. This silhouette works for her and to top it off, her hair and makeup is beautiful. 
Common in Prada 
Common, Common, Common! Love me a good velvet blazer; he definitely pulls it together well with his basic black pant and crisp white shirt. 
Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent 
MY GOSH, this look is everything. I love the deep V and am more in love with the history piece she is wearing around her neck! Such a statement. 
Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent 
Firstly, I still haven't seen Fifty Shades of Gray, so I can't speak about the movie; but I can talk about how Dakota looked stunning on the Red Carpet. Her look was very subtle, but she pulls it off well. From the red, jeweled one shouldered gown to her simple pony, I love it all! 
Rosamund Pike
This dress is everything; from the silhouette, to the slit up the leg, and even the texture of the dress is stunning! Sometimes the red shoe with the red dress could too much, but this works for her. LOVE love LOVE it! 
Reese Witherspoon in Tom Ford 
I love this look because its modern and sleek. The off the shoulder, her natural hair and makeup, the monochromatic color, it all works and she looks stunning. 
Emma Stone in Elie Saab
I am a fan of Elie Saab and Emma looks amazing in this dress designed by him. At first when I saw this color on her, I was a little afraid. But after seeing different pictures and views of the look, she looks great. The color is everything (and one that we didn't see elsewhere on the Red Carpet), the beading is makes the dress, and her makeup looks great as well. 
Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad 
Not going to lie, this is the first time I am seeing Channing Tatum's wife, and she looks beautiful. Every element of the look works perfect and compliments each other and there is nothing I would change about it. 
Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab
I don't know how she does it, but she always looks great. The dress is stunning. I am loving this sleek pony and neutral makeup and that's all I have to say. 

From the closeups, to the behind the scenes, Instagram had it all last night.
