Teaming Up With Project WIGU!

Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? I did.

I wanted to be an entertainer, an actress, a pop star and anything else that would give me a chance to put my face in front of the camera. I would have never have thought that I would end up behind the scenes instead.

I was able to revisit my childhood dream of being the next Beyonce as a part of Project WIGU (When I Grow Up) photo series created by Katherine Clark Photography. Check out more WIGU participants at

Style Stop: Oscars Recap!

Did you check out the Oscars last night? I did and I really loved what I saw! There were definitely some winners last night!  Check out my recap segment on WWAY's Style Stop and some more of my favorites below!


Not only did Lupita Nyong'o win Best Supporting Actress for her breathtaking role in "12 Years A Slave" but she also rocked the red carpet with her "Nairobi Blue" Prada dress. The actress reportedly tried on 70 dresses before deciding on this one!

Charlize Theron slayed the red carpet in her simple, yet elegant Dior dress. Then again, when has she EVER failed us?

Cate Blanchett was STUNNING in her sheer Armani Prive dress. LOVE. 

I was thrilled to see white tux jackets and navy and burgundy tuxedos. Men were all about making a statement last night!

Ryan Seacrest

Kevin Spacey

Michael B. Jordan looked rather dapper in this Givenchy tux with detailed collar and flashy kicks.

We've seen men rock shorts with blazers during the summer. That's one thing. But Pharrell's Lanvin tux with shorts was a different level. I queried several male fashion enthusiasts to get their thoughts. Some were just as torn as I was. The look screams little boy church suit.  But then again, it's Pharrell, a dude who is usually ahead of the fashion curve anyway. And honestly, I can think of several stylish gents who can easily pull this off. So this look, although an acquired taste and NOT for everyone, gets a thumbs up from me.  I'm willing to bet we'll see this look again but in the Port City.

And can we take a moment to check out the evening's accessories? 

 Ok, one more shout out for Charlize! Check out that Harry Winston Diamond Drop Necklace! That piece of fabulousness was worth a whopping $15 million!

So, I think I'm digging this adorable Fred Leighton headband and crescent earrings. Some weren't a fan of the headband, but I think it was sweet enough for someone like Lupita to pull off! 

Peep these Chopard drop earrings that showcase opals set in white gold and diamonds.  They went perfectly with Cate's dress!

Naomi Watts was all about the Bulgari accessories, particularly this geometric clutch. Very fab.

So what were your favorite looks from the Oscars? What looks did you hate?
