While I'm not much for celebrity, I am a HUGE fan of the Oscars. And, maybe more importantly, Oscars parties. (Hey, I used to be a film writer.) So, as we get ready to host our 4th Annual #OscarUp party on Sunday — our sort of tongue-in-cheek, hipster version of a budget-friendly Academy Awards viewing party — I couldn't be more excited.

If you're in Boston this weekend, I really hope you can join us! Grab tickets on Eventbrite for just $15 (plus 25% off with code SHOESTRING, just for you), which includes complimentary bubbly cocktails and mocktails, movie popcorn, a candy bar catered by Boston's own "healthy" candy company, Unreal, and a red carpet Best Dressed contest, judged by our own "Kelly & Ross" — Aubrie Pagano of Bow & Drape and Jeff Lahens of Dresscode Boston — who'll be nominated one lucky lady and one lucky gent for a free night's stay at 40Berkeley and a pair of tickets to Wine Riot Boston in April.

Did I mention that each ticket includes an exclusive 10% off coupon to create your Best Dressed look, good at 5 of our favorite Boston fashion destinations: Goodwill, Artifaktori on Charles Street, The Closet on Newbury Street, The Haberdash at Crompton Collective in Worcester, and Bow & Drape's new studio on Harrison Ave!

Seriously, this is the best deal in town, and it's going to be THE MOST fun — especially since, after spending the last two years hosting in West Hollywood with The Swapaholics, getting inspired by the real deal in real life, then getting further inspired by working on the DIY Boston blog for Boston.com this year, you're going to see a whole lot more trendy/cheeky DIY decorating at this event.

Guess which of these fun DIY projects from our Oscars Party Pinterest board you'll see at Sunday's #OscarUp ... that's right: ALL OF THEM!

Hope to show you all of this in person at the #OscarUp on Sunday - get tickets here (use code SHOESTRING for 15% off).
