The MET Ball is one of my favorite events of the year. I love watching all of Hollywood and the fashion industry, descend on my favorite museum wearing glamorous and over the top fashions.

It’s this girls dream to one day be able to walk up the MET stairs in an Alexander McQueen gown and schmooze w/ Valentino, DVF, and Beyonce. While I put together a plan of action to achieve this I leave you with my top picks for Best Dressed at the 2012 Met Ball.

4 Perfect Transitional Blazers

I love a fitted blazer. When I’m shopping, I often find myself browsing the racks for a blazer that is not only visually appealing, but will also transition well through the seasons and can be worn on various occasions.

I’ve rounded up four gorgeous blazers that can be styled for a high-glam event or a low-key brunch with friends. These blazers will make a statement and have you looking chic throughout the year. 

Here’s where to get them: 

TIBI - Printed cotton-blend sateen blazer

RAG & BONE - Sliver Tuxedo crepe blazer

ROKSANDA ILINCIC - Oskar wool-crepe jacket

JUICY COUTURE - Striped cotton blazer

I Know We’re Cool

I was browsing You Tube playing old music videos from my teenage years and rediscovered the video for Cool by Gwen Stefani, LOVE!  That villa, beach and the wardrobe…Yes Please!

After a little research I found that the video was shot in Lake Como, Italy. The villa in the video is Villa Erba and can actually be rented out for events and parties! A future celebration of mine will definitely be held there, the money will figure itself out.

The sun has finally come out to play and and inevitably I can’t find my sunglasses. Every year I somehow misplace them between the start of winter and the beginning of spring.  I usually don’t invest in an expensive pair due to this fact but this year I’ve decided to treat myself. Here are my top 2 contenders, which would you choose?
