Style-Delights: Long Sleeve Gowns, Heating Pad And Horror Of 'No-Pose'

February 23, 2012

Long Sleeve Gowns, Heating Pad And Horror Of 'No-Pose'

First some sympathy grabbing - I sprained my lower back! (ouch!) And trust me, I didn't do anything scandalous  to get the twisted muscles (Thanks my BFF for asking!), but I was unplugged whole day - recuperating with the heating pad and pain meds. The thing that sucked more than the injury was canceling the outfit post I had planned for today as I could not stand straight for it. (Vanity thy name is fashion blogger!)  Trust me when you see the shirt I planned to wear, you will understand! And while I wait to stand straight again, I see these gorgeous long sleeves gowns (Angelina Jolie's signature style, it seems!) Methinks this look flatter her more than her SAG 2012 Red Carpet look.

I love the simplicity of these gowns and hope to see more of this style on the res carpet at the Oscars!
Which one is your favorite?

  3. Sorry to hear of your pain! I hope you feel back to yourself soon.

    I like long-sleeves on a gown - it emphasizes the point that sexiness is not about showing more skin - it's about attitude and frame of mind. I like the green belt up there. But you could put most of these women in a bag and they'd look pretty good.

    1. Thanks Melanie! ANd yes, they will look good in anything! But For Angelina Jolie, the long sleeves look better than the halter styles, that show her really skinny arms!:-)

  5. Oh no! I hope your back gets better soon! I've been there before and it's no fun at all :( Hopefully you'll get a chance to wear your outfit again--I'm sure you will. As far as the gowns go, I'm a fan of Angelina's J. Mendel and Jenny Packham. They're both just beautiful (ok, they're ALL beautiful, but something about the simplicity of those to just call out to me).
