Phillip Lim For Target LookBook!!!!!!!

14 Aug

Unless you’ve been living under a fashion rock, you KNOW about the upcoming Phillip Lim and Target collaboration (If not, click HERE for more info)  you must check out the pictures below. Target unveiled the lookbook for the collection and I’m sharing my FAVORITES with you!  Like I mentioned in my previous post about this collection, I am ALL ABOUT the accessories!  The scarves and bags are pretty amazing and there is an almost identical version of the Pashli bag for $35!!!!!!

I get sooooo excited about these designer collaborations because it’s really a great way for the everyday fashionista to get her hands on designer pieces, and it brings  high-end designers into every home.  I hear different opinions on this topic sometimes and thought I’d share my opinion.  I hold a firm the belief that it’s great all the way around from designer to consumer.  Of course nothing in these collaborations is “handmade” or made with the best material money can buy, but sometimes it’s NOT about spending the most money!  True fashion lovers know that at the end of the day, fashion is about design and ideas- a particular designer’s artistic spin on a piece of clothing or an accessory.  We pay to wear this art and to make personal statements with it! These collaborations use affordable and more accessible materials and mass produce the pieces to come down to a low price point, but other than that you are STILL purchasing a piece of the designer’s art -in this case Phillip Lim spent months brainstorming and sketching this collection-and that my friends IS FASHION!!!!!! As a lover of high- end and low-end fashion, I feel that mixing is the best way to go! I never buy a piece simply because of the designer label and never pass up a piece simply because of the non designer label! Basically, I will wear Louboutins with a Forever21 dress!!!!!  In other words- if I love it, I buy it and you should too!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars!!!!!!! September 15th!

H&M Campaign Starring Plus Sized Model!

21 May

In real life 24-year-old model, Jennie Runk is average sized, but in the modeling world, she’s considered plus sized.  The 5’10”  size 12/14 beauty is the star of H&M’s Summer swimwear campaign- the first for a plus sized model.  H&M does have a plus sized collection and uses plus sized models but they have never gone into bathing suit territory with anybody larger than a size 6.  Turns out- people like it and they like it a lot!!!! There has been a positive outpouring of support in regards to this latest campaign and that’s a step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.  Women come in all shapes sizes and it’s great seeing representation for all of us. Below are some images from the campaign.

Another Target Collaboration Announced!

9 May

Target is at it again, today they announced their upcoming high fashion collaboration with New York City designer Phillip Lim. Unfortunately we won’t be able to shop this collection until September, but I do think it’s worth the wait. This collaboration strikes me as a little different from its predecessors in the way that the design aesthetic is almost identical to Lim’s full priced designs, really giving the frugal fashionista the chance to get a true taste of the Lim’s designs. The collections, one for men and one for women, will be priced at $19.99-$299.99(for a leather jacket) although most items will be in the $19.99-$75 range. The most exciting part is that all the Bags are  priced at $60 or less!  The 100+ piece collection, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launches online and in target stores September 15.

Check out the $35 yellow tote offered in the target collection pictured below that is so similar to the ‘Pashli’ satchels that retail for $650-$825!!!  This, my friends is a collaboration worth getting excited over!

Prabal Gurung for Target!

13 Jan

The time has come……another Target designer collaboration is upon us! We’ve known about this one for a while but now we have pictures to drool over!  Let me start by saying this one will BE BIG…..Missoni big!  The collection is very wallet friendly ($14.99 for earrings–$199 for a leather jacket) and the pieces are super cute with a feminine aesthetic that includes a palette of bright colors, florals and some color blocking.  Although the collection is launching mid Winter, it is oh -so Spring!!!! There are pieces for everyone including separates, dresses, shoes and accessories. Mark your calendars now, seriously!  February 10th is the day this 80+ piece collection will hit your local Target stores!

Here are some of my favorites Photos: Courtesy of Target

Kate Upton Channels Her Inner Supermodel.

28 Jun

We have all been seeing quite a bit of Kate Upton lately.  If you don’t know who she is, ask any male that you know.   As much as we can appreciate her figure, it was certainly a pleasant surprise to see her in this month’s Vogue looking more like a high fashion model and less like a bikini clad sexpot!  The editorial shows a different side of the beauty.  Upton looks perfectly polished in head to toe designer duds from such labels as Proenza Schouler, Michael Kors and Altuzarra. Do we have a future supermodel on our hands? Hmmmm?
