My Dress For The Golden Globes. If I Were Going.


Savan Jacquard Gown by James Coviello at Anthropologie


Marcy:  Why are you picking out phantom dresses to wear to the Golden Globes when you aren’t even going?

Cynthia:  Just daydreaming.

Marcy:  Sounds more like torture if you ask me.

Cynthia:  Sigh… maybe it is …

Marcy:  I’m happy to just stay at home and watch the Red Carpet and make fun of everyone along with Kathy Griffin and her Fashion Police.

Cynthia:  Oh that’s right. Kathy is replacing our beloved Joan Rivers in the catty fashion critiques.

Marcy and Cynthia take a moment of silence in remembrance of Joan.

Marcy:  Kathy’s so catty. Just like Joan.

Cynthia:  And Brad Goreski is joining the group too.

Marcy:  Ooooohhhh… yum… it’s going to be deliciously snippy and witty.

Marcy has a revelation.

Marcy:  Let’s … LIVE BLOG the Red Carpet. Can we? Can we? Can we?

Cynthia:  Yes!

Marcy:  Let’s rehearse. Pretend you’re wearing that yellow dress.

Marcy starts typing away.

Marcy:  And here comes Cynthia, creator of Marcy Very Much, wearing a full length James Coviello dress from Anthroplogie and looking like a giant bottle of Dijon mustard.

Do you think she stole her grandma’s drapes from 1972 to make that dress? And continuing with the grandma theme, someone needs to tell the over 40’s that an empire waist makes the wearer look preggers.  Not to mention –

Cynthia:  Marcy! That’s mean. We don’t want to be mean!

Marcy:  We don’t?

Cynthia:  It must be terrifying to be out on that red carpet and having the whole world say mean things about the way you look. I don’t want to be that person.

Marcy:  Then I’ll be that cat.


*Join us at 3pm (PST) on Sunday for our live blogging of the Golden Globes Red Carpet. It’ll be a Mean Marcy/Sappy Cindy extravaganza!

    The dress is beautiful. The fabric does remind me of Grammy's drapes but they were very pretty drapes…good analogy, Marcy. I'm looking forward to your Golden Globes observations.

    I love this idea! I will definitely be tuning in. I cannot wait to read what both you and Marcy have to say! Oh! I love an empire waist gown. Marcy would probably shred my closet. I am looking forward to seeing the new Fashion Police but I am still so sad about Joan Rivers. I also don't understand why they replaced George. I feel bad for him. I am looking forward to Sunday!

      Yay! So glad you might tune in! It will be my first time live blogging! I am also so sad about Joan. I'll have to look up what happened to George. Excited for Brad though!

      i would never shred anything in your closet, jenni. you always look beautiful.

    So charming! You crack me up. But secretly I'm so glad I'm not the only one who fantasizes about what I'd wear on the red carpet.

    This dress totally caught my eye, too. As did the price tag. *sigh* At least I have nowhere to wear it. There's no justifying this one.

    I'm still waiting to see you in your pewter Gatsby dress! Or have I missed it? I'll have to scroll through your history to see…

    I love watching the red carpet report at the Golden Globes and Oscars. The elegance! The drama! The opulence! Kathy will keep it real with her insults, I'm sure. I would find it unnerving to have people nitpicking everything I wear, but I suppose society nitpicks everything about celebrity's lives, so their fashion choices are probably the least of their worries. They probably feel the same way we do. If they love how they look in it, screw the fashion police!

      I disagree a lot with the fashion police actually! Red carpet viewing is so much fun. Ha – I am glad I'm also not the only one who picks out dresses to wear to awards ceremonies I will never attend.

      I can't wait to hear what your favorite gowns are at the Golden Globes!

      I have not done a post on my Gatsby dress! I took some photos but did not like how they turned out so I need to take some new ones. I need to do it this weekend I think!

    This was too funny and Marcy can get away with being, "that cat." I look forward to your live blogging.
    Your description of the dress is spot on. I actually like grandma drape like fabric but you are right about over 40 something ladies staying away from empire waists.
    I too miss Joan Rivers and I loved her statement necklaces that she did for QVC. She had great taste.
    By the way, am I missing something about a Gatsby dress? Liz mentioned it so I was just curious.
    Have fun,

      I'm with you – I often like grandma drapes and that yellow dress just has me drooling!

      I haven't done a post on my Gatsby dress yet but I will soon. I bought the Zelda dress from Anthropologie a couple of months ago when they were having a dress discount and I had a birthday discount on top of it – plus a gift card. I got the thing for about $50. I love it but have been lazy about photos.

      Ah… Joan… she is missed!

    […] Cynthia:  But now… now we can’t wait to see what will come down the red carpet! Woo hoo! And now Marcy will do her best Joan Rivers impersonation again. […]
