Best Look from the AMAs 2014

Last night the AMAs took to the airwaves to provide a little musical entertainment for our Sunday night. I think most of the performances were largely underwhelming, but at least there were some fashion stand-outs to applaud! Here’s some of my favorites:

JheneAikoAMAs

Jheneยด Aiko in Alice and Olivia

There’s something about this dress that I love. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I am drawn to it. It might be because it’s different than what everyone else had on, or that it’s Alice and Olivia (a line that I have loved, but never owned a piece of personally) that makes me attracted to it. I’ve heard a lot about this new R&B breakout singer in the last week too. In the fashion world, she’s done a holiday spread for Revolve Clothing, one of my favorite online shops. It’s the perfect storm of interest. She’s pulled me in.

Julianne-HoughAMAs

Julianne Hough in Zuhair Murad

I can’t deny my love for coral-y orange. It’s my favorite color to wear. I also love how simple this dress is, but still sexy and dazzling. This is what I would wear on a red carpet guaranteed.

KardashianJennersAMAs

The Kardashian/Jenner Clan in Yigal Azrouel (on Kendall), Versace (on Khloe) and Alexandre Vauthier (on Kylie)

It’s pretty easy to tell that these ladies own a retail store, have stylists in their family and keep up with what’s going on in fashion. I always love what they’re wearing, even if they themselves drive me nuts. I know that Kendall is a professional model and models look great in just about anything, but I love her mesh dress. Khloe looks amazing and Kylie’s shoes are to die for. I read on some fashion blogs about how they thought Kylie’s dress was a little sexual for a 17 year old to be running around in, but let’s face it… Kylie isn’t a normal 17 year old. I mean she dates a 25 year old rapper and had plastic surgery (allegedly) already. Either way, I think she and they look great.

Rita-OraAMAsRita Ora in Zac Posen

I love the bold statements that Rita always makes with her pieces! I am a huge fan of staying true to your style and edginess of your personality. Rita always rings true. I’ve seen mixed reviews of this dress across other sites. I think you either love it or hate it. One blogger wrote that the train would be hard to deal with. Have you never seen Zac Posen’s dresses? To be anointed the honor to wear one on the red carpet, you must first prove you can handle all the fabric! I don’t actually know if that’s true, but sometimes with fashion comes pain or annoyance, but in this case, the beauty of the final product is completely worth it.

Much Love,

Linds

I should have never written “#13, bad luck? No way!” in my Lustful Friday #13 post because apparently, I was wrong. It kinda was bad luck. I ran into a bit of a hiccup with my site and am in the process of building a new one. Considering I am pretty new to this self-hosting stuff, it is taking me a bit longer than anticipated, but I am learning so much in the process. So, please keep your eyes peeled and hold your breath (or don’t) for the brand new LindseyBrooksBell.com coming to you very soon! And as always,

Much Love,

An Open Letter to Women

I feel like lately when I’ve turned on tv or read about anything in the media I have been truly saddened by how women are letting themselves be treated in the world. Between the Sam Pepper crap or pretty much anything having to do with the NFL, I get pretty bummed out about the state of women’s rights. I have been lucky in life because I grew up with a very caring father, a loving brother, some very strong women role models, and currently have a boyfriend who loves me and treats me with respect.

As a woman who has gained a small spotlight in the world, I want to set an example for other girls and let them know that who you are is worth fighting for. It will be a hard won battle, where people will constantly be trying to change who you are or tear you down. I just want to let anyone who feels this way know, that you should never sacrifice who you truly are. Life will be so much more satisfying being who you want to be. And I wish you the best of luck.

There’s a quote I saw recently and that I thought really sums up how I feel I want to live my life.

“Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women.” Nora Ephron

Have a great week. Much Love,

Lindsey

Lustful Fridays #13 (Bad Luck? NO WAY)

It’s lucky number Lustful Fridays the 13th! Does this mean bad things? Gosh I hope not. I’m pretty sure we should just keep on truckin’. Hopefully your Friday is fantastic and full of all the wonderful things you could ever wish for. Here are some things I’m wishing for!

butterbeerfrap

Yummmmm Butterbeer Frappachino. This little guy is one of the special fraps on Starbuck’s “secret menu”. I put it in quotes because it’s Starbucks sanctioned, you just have to ask for the right bits in the recipe of your drink and voila, secrets become reality. I always wonder what to do with those freebies I get with all my Starbucks stars in the app and now I am going to start trying all of these drinks! Starting with the Harry Potter related one, duh!

applepiebars

I am still not eating pie, so I am always searching for things that look like pie, or taste like pie, but are healthier. I’m not sure these are actually better for you, but I’m willing to try them out, feel a little like Fall and indulge in some pie-like goodness.

balmainpants

As some of you budding fashionista might know, it is Paris Fashion Week. All of the Spring goodness is flooding the runways and I am getting so excited for what is to come. I never get to buy any of this stuff in real life, I just go to H&M or Zara to hit the inspired by pieces, but I can still get excited for what’s to come. The crop top is still having it’s moment in the sun (thank goodness because I love it), and how about these pants. This outfit is Balmain, which is definitely out of my price range, but how lovely will it be when there are some printed pieces like this for us regular girls?

cactusgarden

Anyone who has taken a quick look around my house knows that I am obsessed with having plants around. I think having things growing brings good energy and better air to your living space. Does science back that up? Not sure, but I still believe it. I love these little cacti in all different colors. I am totally making one of these in my house.

chiapet

Speaking of plants, how about this adorable little Mr. King wannabe in his Chia Pet outfit? So stinking cute.

officestuffagain

I’m still on the lookout for awesome office stuff. These pastel colored accessories are exactly what I’m looking for. Maybe I can even just paint some of my plain white ones to match my tangerine dream room! Ombre orange boxes perhaps? I think so!

pinkandnudeheels

I am obsessed with these shoes. Ever since dying my hair pink I know always think, “I NEED ALL THE PINK THINGS” I would be towering over Danny, but whatevs. Look how fun they are!

trench

Another favorite from PFW… this amazing trench from Lanvin. So pretty and feminine. I need to get me a trench for Fall.

whitebalmainjumpsuit

And my last fav from Paris is this Balmain jumpsuit. It comes in red too and is just amazing. I love jumpsuits and am glad they’re sticking around for another season.

That’s it for this week! What are you obsessing over right now?

Much Love,

Lindsey
