We're en route to LA for a week of Oscar related festivities. Between the celebrity gifting lounges, cocktail parties, charity events, and all of the Academy Awards related hoopla, we had to pack a variety of essentials for day and night. Here are some of our wardrobe staples that are sure to serve us well in Hollywood:
Helmut Lang Denim-Paneled Cotton-Jersey Jacket, $435
With the California weather just below 60 degrees, a lightweight jacket is essential. This motorcycle jacket will look equally adorable over a simple soft tee and atop a fun cocktail dress.
Christian Louboutin Sexy 100 Patent-Leather Peep-Toe Pumps, $595
We can always count on these to give our look a pop of color. We don't want to stand out too much, but these pumps were made for the red carpet.
Lia Sophia Black Diamond Crystal Bracelet in Matte Gold & Clear Crystal Bracelet in Matte Silver, $350 Each
These bracelets are both elegant and edgy, which makes them ideal for hitting the pre-Oscar party circuit. And unlike the celebs who require guards to keep an eye on their jewels, we can be chic and carefree walking around in these.
Reiss Resin Frame Clutch, $215
Just big enough for our lipgloss, iPhone, driver's license and credit cards, this retro clutch makes it easy to grab and go.
Halston Heritage Pleated Lame Mini Dress, $325
We'll be channeling our inner disco diva in this festive and fun confection.
Judith Ripka Sterling White Diamonique Cushion Cut Earrings, $184.50
Judith Ripka is a celebrity favorite, but her QVC line is far more affordable than her eponymous luxury collection. We'll be sporting these tomorrow evening when we attend the QVC Red Carpet Style Party.
Stila Eye Shadow Trio in Bronze Glow, $28
Since we packed 6 pairs of shoes in our carry-on there was little room for cosmetics. This 3-in-one shadow palette is perfect for enhancing our eyes.
Nars Lip Gloss in Orgasm, $24
This is one product we don't leave home without....ever!
