what are you wearing?

In my Oscar Fantasy (the one where I accept Best original Screenplay) I'm wearing Colin Firth on my arm. I tell the red carpet people, "He went to Jared for the diamonds and the shoes are by Clarks."

Tim Gunn would fawn over my wit and then I'd say, "Seriously, I'm wearing Elie Saab."



Oscar Reality involved Horny Toad yoga pants, a souvenir t-shirt Mr. D bought for me in Arizona and a pair of socks by an unknown designer.

Spill it, reader. What did you wear to the Oscars?

Yes, this was a gratuitous post written only to put up the photo of Colin.

  1. Yoga pants by ??? Black sweatshirt from Pottery Barn from when I used to unload and process the UPS trucks. No shoes. Uncombed hair because I took a nap before the festivities.
    I was purty!!

  2. I appreciate the irony of missing last night's Oscars to go to the movies. I would stay home to watch if Colin Firth, or Mr. D for that matter, were escorting you on the red carpet. In fact, let's just pencil that in for next year.

  3. I love Colin. I was doing some serious swoon when he was presenting last night. I've always liked him, but after I saw The King's Speech a few weeks back (finally!) I went into full blown adoration mode. Love.

    If I could pick anyone from last night to emulate I think it would have been Michelle Williams. I LOVED her look. Loved. :)

    What I really wore? Jammies and clearasil. ;)

  4. Black sweatpants, pink sweater. I like how they ask 'who' are you wearing...does dog hair count?

  5. Oh dear, black sweatpants for me. Hey, I loved Penelope Cruz's gown. Now I have a list of movies I want to see.

  6. I didn't watch the Oscars. Whenever it was, I'm sure I was wearing running gear or yoga pants ;-)

  7. I believe I was still in jeans and a t-shirt since they were on so early out here!

  8. Clarks! The perfect shoe for haute couture.

    I missed the show last night but while I missed it I had on some lavendar pajama pants with snowmen & snowflakes, and a comfy, black, scoop neck tee.

  9. We don't actually get any TV stations, so I didn't watch. But I always go online and look at the dresses. (Why do they even take photos of the men? Who wants to see a man in a tux?)

    However, I want to know what Colin's wife (?) was thinking --that red pouffy thing going on at her breasts is not attractive.

    I know, I know . . . . you hadn't even noticed her, had you?

  10. I watched, and folded towels while doing so: yoga pants, a Banana Republic shirt I'd splattered with grease mere hours before, and big, fuzzy socks.

    I was dead sexy.

  11. Looking lovely in wide-leg L.L. Bean jeans, a cranberry t-shirt, and Hanes socks. (What are these yoga pants of which you speak?)

    Actually, we were trying to find something that would drown our sorrows at the Daytona 500 being drowned, and ended up watching raptors eviscerate rabbits on PBS. ;)

  12. I am a big fan of gratuitous posts involving photos of my second husband. I really didn't care for Mrs. F's dress, as I thought it was fussy and frumpy.

    I didn't watch the Oscars, but I was dressed in my t-shirt, cardi, and jeans.

  13. If you had Colin Firth on your arm, would you even bother Going to the Oscars?!? wink wink ;)

  14. Ooooh, designer socks??

    I am wearing stretchy leggings, a top that clashes horribly, very comfy large panties and a mega overnight 'Always' with wings... I have a towel on my head as well, but I will remove it shortly.

  15. Danskin from head to toe--yoga pants and hoodie.

    I didn't watch the whole show, but I did catch Mr. Firth and Ms. Streep--and I can't imagine it got better than that.

  16. Same schleppy old black sweat pants and a crummy red sweatshirt I always wear to the Oscars.

  17. Yeah when we some people on the red carpet we will often think do you not look at yourself in a mirror or why on earth do you let someone who hates you pick your clothes out for you...........or is that just me.......lol
    that said I do like the second dress you have posted here.

  18. Wow, yoga pants carry the day. I was rocking the couch in my pair that has never been to a yoga class. It was daringly paired with an old sweat jacket that used to belong to D but in it's soft, rattiness has become my favorite winter, home wear. I sported no socks but instead was toasty in my trusty UT slippers.

  19. I didn't even watch the oscars...

  20. I did not watch the Oscars, but I was probably wearing pajamas. I'm another Horny Toad fan.
