Friday Love

i don't know about you, but it's been an extremely long week for me.  loads going on at work just totally drained me.  i fell asleep twice on the couch last night before moving to bed at 8:26.  getting craaaazy on a thursday night.  now onto some friday love.
pasta bake i made for dinner one night this week.  wheat pasta, fra diavlo sauce, spinach, chicken, and some melted cheese.  so delish.  so easy.  so wonderful.

j.crew factory oval crystal-link necklace.  this is just one example, but lately i've been lusting after j.crew factory jewelry more than real j.crew.  the jewelry is much more in my price point and it's usually a little more on the simpler side than regular j.crew.  the color on this beauty is papaya.  love.
knee high boots, particularly black leather ones.  after absolutely freezing all day long in a skirt and shoes, i immediately came home and put on some jeans and my black leather knee high boots.  so toasty and comfortable.  whatever style you prefer, they're definitely necessary on a fall friday.

gap cable knit sweater.  this isn't the exact one that i'm wearing, but as i said i was freezing all day, so i'm rocking my new gap grey cable knit sweater for the first time this season.  cable knit seems to go in and out of style and somehow i always end up either buying one or breaking out an old version that i have.  my current one was courtesy of a birthday gift card aka free aka the best kind.  the only way my outfit could be improved right now is if i was wearing burgundy skinny jeans.  soon.  they will be mine.

Who Loves TV? I Do! I Do!

everyone tells me i watch too much tv.  if only you knew me back in the day.  i had a tv watching schedule every night.  i've definitely cut way down now that i have a full time job, but i still pride myself on knowing what is going on on most shows even if i don't watch them.  so what do you think i'm doing on tv's biggest night? watching and judging fashions of course.  let's jump right in.

best dressed: tie between jessica pare from mad men and tina fey from 30 rock:

jessica pare in jason wu.  i hate her on mad men.  her character makes me lose my mind and don't even get me started on my issues with her mouth, but at the emmy's this past weekend, she looked amazing.  her dress was so simple and chic, but her green ring and bright lip added some pop.  i just thought overall she looking awesome.
tina fey in vivienne westwood.  girlfriend always wears navy or black, but when she stepped on the carpet in THE color for fall, burgandy, i had to give it up to miss fey.  also this is going to sound really weird, but i love when she pulls her hair back so you can see her ears.  she has big ears and you know what, i love big ears.  i find them endearing.  call me a weirdo, whatevs.  on top of that, the visual interest around the neckline brought the house down.  *golf clap for tina.

next up is best makeup.  goes to my girl (get it) anna chlumsky from veep:

i just thought her face looked stunning.  her skin looked great.  personally i don't rock lipstick, so i love when celebrities look amazing without it.  her soft smoky eye brought all the attention to her eyes.  i don't think she's ever looked better.  

thirdly, we have best hair, which goes to boobs mcgee, aka kat dennings from new girl:
holy boobs batman.  i think that was everyone's reaction when she walked onto the carpet.  once i got past her voluptuous bosoms, i couldn't take my eyes off her hair.  simply stunning.  soft curls, parted away from her face, with some added visual interest in the gold headband.  solid work.  side note: she's apparently dating nick zano.  remember that show where amanda bynes and jenni garth were sisters that lived together on abc family?  no?  anyone?  well nick zano was amanda bynes quirky friend then love interest on the show.  remember when amanda bynes wasn't cray cray?

and finally we'll wrap it up with worst dressed which goes to glenn close from damages:

glenn close in bibhu mohapatra.  i saw her and the only thing i could say was ew.  the top looked like a suit on her and the bottom was a dress that didn't go.  just was not impressed.  older ladies should know what looks good on them by now and glenn, this is not your best.

and finally here are my tweets from the evening for random observations (read in reverse order):

Oh Nicole (kidman) and your nonmoving face is oh so scary 
Claire danes and Julianne moore both in bright yellow and both looking lovely  
Kristen wiig and I do not see eye to eye on hair and wardrobe
I love how much jimmy fallon is sweating. Makes him seem like a normal human instead of a celebrity alien  
Ooh breaking news Tina Fey is NOT wearing navy or black hurrah! 
Woah boobs Kat dennings. Your hair looks awesome but girlfriend get some sun
Guilianas red carpet dress is waaaay better than her pre show dress
Ryan seacrest's hair looks like a n isosceles triangle on top of his head
