Large Marge

It's official...I'm huge. I went shopping with some friends today at UAL. They had some really cute tops and tunics that I totally thought I could wear over jeans or leggings. WRONG! I tried these 'loose-fitting' knits, and they sucked to me. It was vulgar and quite disgusting if you ask me. So to all my girlfriends who think you are shopping with me for free fashionista advice better think again. The only place this belly is shopping is maternity stores. Sorry...ya'll can go back to free advice after February!

As a disclaimer, I have to say I'm not complaining. God has blessed me with this human growing inside of me, and I don't mind the belly! Just making a statement that my delusions of normal clothes shopping have been wiped away.

Best Dressed

The female winner for best dressed for me was a no brainer. Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland totally knows how to dress her body! I love everything about this dress...nuf said. I also included a picture of her outfit when she was receiving one of her awards. Love it.

I had 3 best dressed males. I get so sick of black tuxes at award shows. These guys had 3 different looks that made them easy on the eyes.
Darius Rucker is so cool! I loved him in Hootie and the Blowfish, and I love him singing country music! Welcome to Nashville Darius! I loved his look on the red carpet. I couldn't find a full length picture, but he had jeans on with this yummy green leather jacket.

Speaking of yummy....

And the yummiest...why does Nicole get all the hunks?

Fashion Disasters

Well people, I don't think these were too hard to spot! Here are the fashion disasters I spotted this year. Ya'll know I have to be kind of nice since this is my hometown (not that any of these people read my blog). But you never know when I might land a big star as my client!

Not sure what is hanging between Martina's legs, but whatever it is frightens me.

Jay from Rascal Flatts said it best on stage when he was receiving his award...he said something about not being able to be out too late because he had to get Mamaw back her curtains. Now why would you wear a jacket that you KNOW looks like your grandma's curtains? This baffles me.

Heidi Newfield who used to be in Trick Pony looks like she may pull a trick of her own and take off flying!

Carrie's 8 dresses

This will be the first a a few posts from the CMAs. If I did it all in one, it would be way too long. I have way too much to say about the fashions at awards shows!

I'm starting with Carrie Underwood since she hosted, and has so many looks for me to analyze! I've put pics of all her looks for the evening and what I think of them. Feel free to comment if you agree, or disagree!

Red carpet dress: thumbs up. I love the color of this Roberto Cavalli against the red carpet!

This is not my favorite. While Carrie can get away with some fabrics that most people can't, you could tell she was uncomfortable in this satin get-up. When she moved, you could see every little curve (including the slip she had under it). Unless you are the size of Keira Knightley, I wouldn't recommend a long satin dress.

I like the goddess look. It's romantic and feminine. Not wild about the cotton candy pink, but I guess if you get to wear 8 dresses in one night, you should have a range of colors.

Love this dress! This is one of my favs for the night. Classic and beautiful! Don't think I've ever seen a Nicole Miller dress I didn't love. Love the one shoulder, love the defined waistline, and love Carrie showing off her pretty legs. I want to know her workout routine (not that I'd do it).

Not much to say about this one but, GORGEOUS! Hard to go wrong with a Badgley Mischka gown.

I love this dress! I thought it was unique and whimsical. And her hair was cute with the little red chopsticks holding it up.

Ok, I really did not like this dress. The top was pretty, but the bottom reminded me of gag me with a spoon!

LOVE this dress! I had a hard time finding a pic of this one online. But when I saw it on TV, I fell in love.

Press conference dress: I like this one. Nice mini party dress with flare sleeves. I'm sure she changed again before going to the parties though. Maybe next year, I'll go to the parties and take my own pictures to share!
By the way, if anyone cares, Stuart Weitzman shoes graced Miss Underwood's feet for the evening, and she wore Jonathon Arndt Jewels.

Obama yo' mama

OK, I'm with Annie...tired of saying all day how God is in control of this country while people complain about the outcome of the election. Everything is going to be least I pray it will.

On a lighter note, I have to post this picture of what our future 1st lady was wearing last night. I didn't stay up to watch everything, but my hubby did. He said I had to see the dress she was wearing. Looks like she went up in flames...scary!
