love it or leave it?

Are you ready for another installment of love it or leave it? This time it is all about Taylor Swift's AMA 2013 look. The hair, the makeup, the accessories, and of course, that unforgettable metallic gold dress. Was it a hit or a miss? Let's find out!


What I Love: 

Every so often, a red carpet look will make me positively giddy...which is exactly how this outfit made me feel. That's why I was so surprised when people I know said that they weren't a fan of Taylor's AMA outfit! How? Okay, maybe I am a little too smitten with this red carpet look. But I can't help it - it has all of my must-haves in one: smokey eye makeup, sexy hair, metallic everything and a killer pair of heels. Taylor looks downright sizzling!

I literally love everything. I love that her hair is just a little tousled and playful. I love that her makeup is smouldering but not too over the top. I love all of the details on this metallic dress. I love the belt cinching the waist. I love that stunning sheer panel. And yes, I love those strappy heels. Everything here just works for me. Looking at Taylor here, it's hard to believe that winter is coming. This would be a phenomenal outfit to wear for a night out in summer.

What I Loathe:

There is nothing I loathe about this outfit. Not one single thing. From my perspective, Taylor totally hit it out of the park. However, I realize that not everyone feels this way. Just today I heard two separate conversations about how 'shiny' and '80s' Taylor's AMA look was. (As if that's a bad thing!) I was absolutely shocked.

For me, this is a definite love! What do you think: love it or leave it?

  1. I don't really like this, the dress is too short and sparkly in my opinion. But she pulls it off! :) xx

  4. I think Taylor looks great!! I love the hair the most. :) I would like it a bit better if the dress was about 2 inches longer- it borderline looks like a shirt. :P But hey, Taylor has a great body sooo she can pull it off!
