This Week's Blog Post

Sea Opal Glass
Sea opal glass is a manmade “stone” that has a pretty, soft opalescense. It is a pale blue that reflects pastel colors when light hits it certain ways. 

This sweet bracelet is available at Miss Val’s Creations.

Golden Globes 2013 Fashion
It is awards season again so of course I need to show off some gorgeous dresses as well as some interesting ones. I love going through the Yahoo report card to see what I agree with and disagree with each awards show and the following are pulled from there.

I will start with interesting. Now I love Lucy Lui (been a fan since Ally McBeal). I actually love the dress too and Carolina Herrera. However the print is a little wild for the red carpet!

What I love about Helena Bonham Carter aside from her quirky movie roles is her sense of fashion. Always a bit off beat! How great is her red lips clutch?

Here is one of the most talked about of the evening. This is Katherine McPhee in a serious plunger! The dress is a bit boring but she does rock it!
Katherine McPhee in Theyskens' Theory
This dress on Kaley Cuoco was a favorite of mine although the Yahoo police gave her a D rating! I will admit the hair and makeup is not working for her. If Halle Berry was wearing this one it would have been rated an A, Right?

This dress on Julianne Hough is just a stunner!

I thought Sofia Vergara’s gown was amazing with its detailing and crazy shine! This photo does not do it justice but when she was walking she was sparkling!

Nicole Kidman looked classy and beautiful as always. I love the mid section of this gown.

As a Gleek, I am throwing in Lea Michele just because. This gown is so elegant.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a marvelous week!!! ~Val


  1. Love those shiny opal beads! Kind of reminds of the snow over here very early in the morning :)
    Of all the dresses I like Lea's best. It really suits her. I love Glee too :)
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. wao...Sofia Vergara looks just... AMAZING!!! i love that woman!

  3. The dresses are always my favorite part of awards shows! Julianne Hough's dress is just gorgeous!

  4. Sofia Vergara's dress...WOW! Wish I had the dress and the body!
    Love your bracelet! So soft and beautiful. I am always intrigued by that particular bead and pick them up and put them down a hundred times when I am at a bead store or show. I never know what to do with them. But you sure did :-)

  5. Hi Val, the bracelet you are showing is gorgeous. The dresses are the best part of these shows. Kind of like the superbowl....the best part is often the commercials. :)

    I hope you have a great week.


    PS....I'm so addicted to Pinterest that now, when Chris and I are watching a tv show I'm not particularly interested in, I sit there with my ipad pinning things. You've created a monster.

    1. Hehe! There is something very addictive about Pinterest!

  6. thanks for the name of that glass! I have a few beads like that - but didn't know what it was called. And as I recall, when you and I started following each other last year ... it was right about this time chatting it up about all the glamorous gowns! enjoy the award season my friend :)

  7. Love Kaley Cuoco's dress!
    Hava a lovely week!

  8. I love that red lips clutch, Sofia Vergara looks gorgeous but If you had me pick one to wear I'd wear that last one :)

  9. Love the color and glow of your opalescent beads!
    Maybe I'm old fashioned but I thought Lucy Lui's gown was the prettiest I've seen in a long time. Very feminine.
    The red carpets are fun for jewelry watching.

  10. those stone looks super pretty~ i love how translucent it looks

  11. Beautiful bracelet! I love the color! Great choices of dresses you picked! I think the best part of the award show, is seeing what the stars wear!

  12. Great picks of dresses! Definitely agree :)

  13. Val, the bracelet is just beautiful! It makes me think of summer and white. Just perfect.

    My favorite dress from the Golden Globes, was Julianne Hough's. What a gorgeous gown.

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

  14. Lovely dresses!!! and beautiful bracelet, Val!!!
