Red Carpet to Real Life: Mandy Moore

It's no doubt the Oscar looks set trends for the season but how many real woman actually get to wear a ball gown in their daily lives? (besides for the random black tie wedding every year or so...) That said, I wanted to start a new series on BBB that will help you translate the top trends from the red carpet to your real life.

I'm deconstructing my favorite looks from the Oscars and showing you how to translate these looks into daily life looks for Spring.

In the first "edition" of runway to real life I'm breaking down one of my top three looks at the Oscar's - Mandy Moore in Monique Lhullier - and showing you how to get the look with J. Crew's new Spring line!

Mandy's look was all about modern vintage. Taking timeless sillouttes from the late 50s/60s and updating them with sparkle and glamour! To get this look we recommend looking for timeless casual wear items - a skinny cropped khaki (ala Audrey Hepburn), ballet flats and a feminine crew neck tee. The bling comes in with this shimmering "metallic gold" top, oversized crystal earrings and a pave and gold open link bracelet. Metallic flats bring a little more dazzle to the overall look.

The Breakdown:
All Available at

- Shimmerveil Tee in Light Bronze

- Classic Cafe Capri Pant in British Khaki

- Twisted Flower Button Earrings

- Mini Pave Link Bracelet

- Lula Jacquered Ballet Flats in Gold

Fashionably Yours,
