The Shops at Target

Target has done it again! They have  teamed up with five ultra chic specialty boutiques from around the country to co create and bring products to a Target store near you. Target will feature a group of boutiques and have their products in select Target stores for six week runs (or until sold out) beginning May 6th. Think of it as a lending of retail space, a store in a store of sorts. Sounds like another target HIT and a golden ticket for these shop owners. I first caught wind of this news in January when I realized the shops would include The Webster, as in the Webster Miami, One of the best boutique stores in the country offering high end  fashion and accessories for men and women.

Vera Wang 1st ever Cosmetics Collection to Debut

24 Mar

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 20 years, Vera Wang is all things Bride. She branched off into ready to wear, stationary,home decor,sunglasses and now Makeup:) She masters anything she does so I am looking forward to this line. I must admit I have only been to kohl’s once and it wasn’t for clothes(I found some great picture frames) but I will definitely go back now. This is the 62 year olds first ever makeup line. The 16 piece collection will debut in April and ranges in price from $16.50 to $39.50 and will be sold exclusively at Kohl’s. “Like fashion, makeup is transformational” Wang recently said and I couldn’t agree more.

Random Vera Wang Facts: Vera was a senior fashion editor at Vogue for 17 years. In 1987 Vera left Vogue after being turned down for the editor in chief position currently filled by the infamous Anna Wintour.  She worked as design director for Ralph Lauren while hatching a plan to open her own design salon. In 1990 she did just that, opening her first store at the Carlyle Hotel in New York featuring her wedding gowns. They always say when one door closes another one opens….in her case another door FLEW OFF THE HINGES!  Hooray for Vera getting turned down and having it lead to what she was really destined to do. So many brides are thankful for that, I was lucky enough to wear 2 magical Vera Wang dresses(I wore a bridesmaid dress for the reception) on my big day and I’ll never forget it. Now we can all wear her everyday with this makeup line!
