Psst…There’s still time to nominate Pretty, Shiny, Sparkly for the 2010 Bloggies – the awards for the best weblogs!
Nominations end Jan 12th. Did I mention I’d love you forever?
Sometimes, the red carpet review is all about the accessories. Other times, the shoes. This year, PCA 2010 was all about the dresses. Minis prevailed. Funny, but we thought the PCA’s were more of the hip, fun, casual persuasion as compared to other, more nosebleed-inducing fetes. Oh wells.
Taylor Swift stole the show in yet-another-mini, this one by Jenny Packham. Gorgeous! And, rather unbelievably for the industry, Diane Kruger styled herself! I caught a video glimpse of her describing each place she bought each item of her ensemble (like H&M!). Here are my favorite outfits of the night (check out Carrie’s costume changes!), and scroll down to see what outfit I would have worn to the People’s Choice Awards.
Had I been invited.
But I wasn’t. So. Yeah.
Oh, and I’m planning a very special and enormously huge giveaway, coming up next, so be sure to stay tuned, because it will be fast, sweet, and extremely rewarding. Don’t miss it.
Here’s what I would have worn. Click for more details on each item.
Did you watch the show? What did you think? How funny was it that Mariah Carey couldn’t even walk up the stairs to accept her award without her hubby Nick Cannon helping her up. Maybe I should burn in hell, but mermaid dresses and that ass just don’t mix.
Spring is a lovely time–and not just because my birthday happens to fall around then (May 1st, holla!). It’s full of sunny days, chirping birds, blossoming blooms, and…rainshowers.
But you know PSS has got you covered. Literally.
I’m good like that.
I have a phenomenal obsession with rain boots. Argyle galoshes currently reside in my teeny-weeny closet right now. If I wasn’t such a poor med student, I’d totally buy each and every one of these. But I can’t, so…I’ll share them with you!
Leave it to me to blog vicariously through others. Enjoy!

- Kate Spade “Randi” $125
- Hunter Original Gloss $125

Here are some more lovelies. One of them (#2) is rather traditional and I like it very, very much. I’m also hearting #3. The rest are some crazier boots I found that make take a bit more…courage, to wear.

PSS did good this year. I got a lovely treasure trove of gifts, and I am so thankful and very blessed to be so fortunate.
Humility aside, let’s show you the goods. Then, post a comment with a link to your blog post, polyvore, shopstyle, or any other collection–showing off your Christmas/Hanukkah loot!
Seriously. Now is not the time to be bashful.
What better way to ring in the New Year in the hottest thing since sliced bread: covered (aka concealed/hidden) platform pumps. Scroll down to see which ones I will be wearing, solely (no pun intended) to ring in the new year! ( Still don’t have a dress? )

- BCBGeneration Holmy platform $68
- Donna Karan pumps $413-590
- Miu Miu Caged platform pumps $590
- Carlos Santana Hysteria platform slingbacks $49.95

What pair of pumps will I be ringing in the New Year wearing? Why, these Calvin Klein Carley pumps!
Behold, the YSL pumps I have been lusting over (and they’re “only” $795!)…
What are you planning on wearing for New Year’s 2010, and what will you be doing? Partying in Times Square? The country club? Toasting marshmallows with the kids? I want to hear it!
One odd little trend that has been making waves in the fashion circuit for a while now is faux fur. (Never real fur, of course!) I’d like to see what YOU think about faux fur — it’s a ballsy trend that takes no small amount of guts and confidence (oozing, preferably) to pull off. But, can you? Would you?
- Michael Kors Faux Coyote Fur Vest
- The Battalion Veggie Faux Fur Vest
- Asos Mango 3/4 Sleeve Vest
- Juicy Couture Faux Fur Collared Cardigan
- Elle Sweater
For some reason which PSS can’t divine, fur trapper hats are all the rage right now. We think we’ll sit this trend out. What about you?
- Aqua Quilted Faux Fur Trapper Hat, Bloomingdales
- Fox Unlimited Fur Hat (note: PSS doesn’t condone the use of real fur–hence we are not linking to it)
- Asos Faux Fur Deerstalker Hat
- Saks Fifth Avenue Trapper Hat
Happy Holidays, PSSers! May the season be bright, shiny, sparkly–and full of pretty things!
