Gallery Mondays: “Jeweled Toad”

If you’ve seen my accessories collection, you’d know that I LOVE owls. I have an owl ring, several owl necklaces, an owl phone case…

The owl obsession is real.

So you can imagine back in fall 2015 while I was visiting the Getty Museum in Los Angeles how excited I got when I saw this adorable owl, part of the In Focus: Animalia exhibit.

A dye imbibition print, called “Jeweled Toad” is by Los Angeles based artist Hiro. The toad brooch was created by David Webb. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the original piece because there was no photography allowed in that particular exhibit, so the above photo is of promo poster outside of the hall. I have my ways.

Is it just me, or is this owl extra fluffy?! I just wanna reach out and ruffle its feathers!

I’d buy that toad brooch in a heartbeat (if it were affordable, and I doubt it is lol).

I just hope that brooch isn’t attached to the owl. That would be cruel.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Jennifer Garner @ 2016 Teen Choice Awards

Jennifer Garner, 2016 Teen Choice Awards

As I’ve stated in previous Wardrobe Wednesdays posts centered on award shows, I love it when celebs show up wearing the simplest things that look super elegant and chic on them.

Because no one wants to be sitting in an auditorium space for hours waiting in uncomfortably sophisticated clothing to be called for an award you might get nothing more than a nomination for.

Jennifer Garner accepted the Teen Choice Award  for Choice Movie: Drama for the film Miracles from Heaven alongside costar Kiley Rogers on Sunday wearing this gorgeous black Maison Margiela strapless jumpsuit with buttons. She completed the look with some David Webb earrings and a bangle.

The wide leg on the jumpsuit makes the look appear polished and well put together, in my opinion. The jewels are also a very nice compliment to the outfit.

You can find the original jumpsuit at Barneys (marked with *). Below are also some alternatives to the jumpsuit and the jewelry.
