Hey, hey, the Emmys!

Surprising myself I have to say that this is my favorite dress of the evening.  I would never have expected to favor this color, but it just looked so bright and fresh and really stood out to me.  Julianne Moore also pulled off the color, but I loved the shape and ruching of this Monique Lhuillier dress more.

Kat Dennings looks so beautiful in this J. Mendel and the red is a perfect pairing for her milky skin and dark hair, but, and I hate to say it, her body is just not meant for this cut.  I can speak for the larger-chested ladies and I know what it feels like to lose weight and fit into dress shapes you've only looked at from afar for years, BUT that doesn't mean you should wear them.  I'll give her a pass, but I won't stop staring at her boobs.

Relaxed and radiant, Claire Danes can do wrong.   Even while saying "holler" and "baby daddy" in Lanvin. 

 What a terrible picture and I'm afraid I have to say Sarah Paulson looks better as a blonde, yet I still loved this Reem Acra gown.  It looked striking on my tv screen and like something any girl would love to wear.

And DAYUM did Tina Fey not look bangin' in this Carolina Herrera custom gown.  Girl really stepped it out. 

Here are all of the notes I took during the ceremony before giving up and living vicariously with strangers on Twitter:
  • Julie Bowen - Don’t make a speech saying how ridiculously easy your job is.  It’s embarrassing.  
  • Amy Poehler’s bit during Julia’s win.  So funny and great to get a real feeling that these ladies are all rooting for one another.  
  • Connie Britton’s hair is a lesson in not knowing yourself.  I understand wanting to do something different.  But NO. 
If you want the rest of my own personal peanut gallery you can check it out on Twitter.

Non-Friday Links. Again.

This photo makes me grin like an idiot each time I see it, so I thought I'd share it all with you.  I don't have much today, but thought I should pop in.  Wanted to pop in.

This review/recap is oh so old now, but it encapsulates my thoughts on The Newsroom so well I just had to bring it to the party. [If you haven't seen the show and don't want spoilers you can read until it says "The Final Rundown."]

I am borderline crazy about these Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters (phew! what a ridic name).  I know everyone and their mom has blogged about them, but they're so great!  I've already purchased four colors (returning two) and am beginning to wonder what other colors I should get.  It's a sickness.

Did everyone read this?  If not, YOU SHOULD!

PLEASE HELP ME:  Should I buy this bag?  And if I should: Red or Ivory???

Now that summer will inevitably be coming to a close -- haven't you always wanted to know what each Song of the Summer was going back to 1962?  Well, I did.

Everyone's favorite term: slut shaming! What I think is an important point in this national "trampire" debate.

That is all.
