Post-Oscars… Still Recuperating


While it was last February, I still can't help but miss the hustle and bustle of Oscars week. It was a chaotic yet wonderful madness for me. I met many of my Blogger Babes face to face, got to meet so many influencers in the fashion, beauty and lifestyle space and learnt so much about the art of intense socializing. (More about my Vanity Fair Social Week adventure in a future post. Stay Tuned!)

Of course, I'd like to thank my Etienne Aigner Stag Bag for helping me stay organized throughout the whole affair. Seriously, I don't know what I would have done without it. Although, losing my phone 787 times in the bottomless pit of an ordinary purse may be an answer.

Stag Bag

Each side of the Stag Bag features two large zip-up compartments that open up to smaller inner pockets -- great for holding all my random receipts, phone, business cards, mints and endless lip gloss supply (you know you do it too).

The detachable strap let me sling it over my shoulder as I rushed from event to event. Plus, I’m in love with the eye-catching dalmatian print.

Animal prints by the way, are a great neutral and this whimsical pattern added a bit of fun to a potentially trop proper work outfit.

DVF Black Culottes

Tip: If you’re going to do a lot of walking (I swear I walked 70 miles that week) but love high heels, booties with a slightly thicker heel are the answer to sturdy, fashionable support. These black beauties looked great and got me through AM to PM, feet intact.

To prevent a tie-neck blouse  from looking stuffy, pair with minimally-styled hair, on-trend details such as a pair of culottes and chic sunglasses.

Here's to a unforgettable Oscars week --  the people, the free flow of food and drinks and getting primped every day and night. Most of all, I miss being constantly surrounded by so many of my Blogger Babes. I'm now quite inspired to see how I can recreate the vibe felt during VFSC at other Blogger Babes events.

    Oh Heidi, you simply look awesome! I love the animal printed bag so much and your entire look, preppy yet super classy and sophisticated. I love it!

  • You look amazing, Heidi, you look more like one of the Hollywood stars that night in Oscars. Gorgeous!

  • loreleichung says:

    I can still the buzz the Oscars had created, too. I love seeing dresses in red carpet that night. And you look amazing on your whole ensemble, so pretty! Looking forward to reading about your Blogger Babes conference/event 🙂

  • Angelique P. says:

    For a busy career woman like you, you sure look ageless and very lovely! The Oscars red carpet walkers are nothing compared to your beauty!

  • Serena Countess says:

    You’re stunning! I’ve got no other words… stunning, really!

  • Caryn says:

    You always look so polished and chic, I like that! I wish I’ve got the same fashion sense such as yours!

  • Rosie St.Paul says:

    Gotta love a girl who knows how to strut her stylish clothes! You Are Beautiful!

  • Marielle says:

    Look at that bag! It’s a must-have! Glad I stumbled upon your post, I knew I saw that bag somewhere, but I wasn’t able to remember where it was, and now, here it is. Thanks for sharing that info – that Stag Bag would definitely be a necessity for me.

  • Lian Atwater says:

    Look at you girl, you’re absolutely flawless and stunning! I myself can’t get away with that look, maybe because my mom always tells me I’ve got a bad back due to my slouching and all. But you, well, you look absolutely lovely in everything! You deserve to be on the Oscars red carpet, for what it’s all worth 🙂

  • Margaret says:

    Whether you’re going to the airport, or on a runway or simply going out with friends, you always look stunning! I liked your bag so much, I could use a handy bag like yours with my line of work.

  • Serena says:

    Gotta love a girl who can wear anything even without showing any skin and still look sexy and gorgeous nonetheless!

  • Arianne says:

    You are beautiful, Heidi, I love the whole look! I hope you don’t mine me copying that outfit for my next out-of-town meeting with other book bloggers. I’m glad I bought my DVF Black Culottes (thanks for the suggestion, by the way) and will be ready to wear it next weekend. Ta-ta!

  • Pamela says:

    I can feel it too, you know, that something one feels when something as colorful as Oscars has happened. It’s like a fever you need to get rid of. Days before the Oscars last month, I was really excited, guessing what JLo or ScarJo would be wearing. And when the Oscar fever eventually died down, sometimes I still catch myself feeling like Fashion Police, commenting this should have not been worn by this or that. Crazy, really!

  • Johanna says:

    I actually love your hair here, bouncy and wavy, perfect for your whole look!

  • Courtney says:

    Wow! It’s a combination of casual, formal and playful look. Love, Love, Love!

  • Megan says:

    I love how the colors were coordinated, giving you a define and attractive look that is posh and formal at the same time. Thanks for sharing.

  • jennifer says:

    I must admit, that animal-printed bag of yours added beauty to your beautiful outfit, a great accessory for every working woman.

  • Amanda says:

    Great outfit, Heidi! You nailed the professional but super chic look!

  • Brenda says:

    Looking great! I love the bag, it looks like it can accommodate a lot! I like it very much

  • Tanya says:

    I love your booties, it looks really nice and comfy. I also got a pair and surprisingly, whenever I wear it, I don’t feel any discomfort at all. It feels like I am not actually wearing it, which is good, because it means my feet love ’em.

  • Drew says:

    I’m not really a boots fan, I always preferred walking in heels and sometimes sandals. I like that one you’re wearing though, it does look comfy and terrific. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Caryl says:

    You look every bit professional in that outfit, but still look classy and elegant, lovely!

  • Aaliyah Jane says:

    That Stag Bag looks elegant and classy. Love the prints, too!

  • carmencita says:

    The first that really caught my attention is your hair, it’s gorgeous! I love how it curled a bit, looks really great on you!

  • curtisleigh says:

    your post says, still recuperating.. I thought you were sick or something. I hope all is well with you. It’s been months after the Oscars, but I still check out the dresses worn by celebs on People website. Looking at the pictures is like a stress reliever to me 🙂

  • Erin says:

    I love your DVF Black Culottes , it looks like I can easily pair it off with my trendy blouse shirts. You look lovely and dashing, as always Heidi, and the bag is a must-have!!

  • Georgina says:

    I like that bag of yours, it’s like a sling bag and shoulder bag in one. I liked that it has many compartments, too, something I really need for that many stuffs I usually take with me when I go out. Just wanna ask if it also comes in other prints, too?

  • Charlotte says:

    I definitely love the bag, too, that’s something I’ll probably splurge my extra cash on.

  • Tamiya Rowlands says:

    I agree with all, that bag really looks great and it comes quite in handy. Love it! Plus the black booties, oh it’s so gorgeous I like it so much!

  • Wena says:

    Ahh, the classic and elegant professional look, it really suits you, Heidi, so beautiful!

  • Wren says:

    I love the whole outfit, it looks chic and classy actually!

  • Nikki says:

    They can say everything about the bag, but what really caught my eyes is your gorgeous locks! Your hair flows like from that of a goddess… Who did your hair? I love it so much!

  • Isabelle says:

    Oh girl, that bag is gorgeous, I’d love to get my hands on it. You look lovely as always!

  • Shelby says:

    I am at a loss for words… you’re simply gorgeous!

  • Gee Wilkins says:

    Now this is what I love to wear when going to the office, looks so preppy and casual yet polished and fun, too!

  • Amy says:

    Love, love, love this outfit! I tried to copy this look but I can’t seem to make it work on my end. I guess being short and kinda plump would make me look like “trying hard”… But I love the look on you! and the shoes! it’s to die for!

  • Rosanna K. says:

    Your shoes! Oh I love it!!! The shoes got it for me, it’s my weakness!

  • MJ says:

    I really like this outfit. It shows how stylish and beautiful you are 🙂 Perfect!

  • JaimeLynn Reeds says:

    I actually like your bag, the leopard prints stand out to me. You look gorgeous as always 🙂

  • Janina says:

    You look so beautiful and elegant here Heidi, I love how professional yet edgy you look! And those sunglasses really look great on you!

  • Gabby says:

    Beautiful! Whatever you wear, you are a vision of beauty!

  • The Golden Globes just finished this year, in a matter of weeks, it’s The Oscars and I can’t wait to see you all glammed up and looking every bit a celebrity on the red carpet 🙂 I’m sure you’ll look great and fierce this awards season 🙂

    • Heidi says:

      Awards season is the most exciting! I cannot wait to see all the gorgeous gowns coming down the red carpet.

  • Daniella Estrada says:

    In less than a month, the Oscars is here and I can’t wait to see you in a dress while walking the red carpet!

  • That is a very professional and chic look, great bag too!
