Phillip Lim To Create Collection With Target

phillip-lim-target-collection

If one good thing came out of the recession, it’s the burgeoning number of high end designers coproducing with mass market retailers with Target as one of the reigning Kings of these unions.

Phillip Lim is the latest to join in matrimony with the Bullseye brand. “3.1 Phillip Lim for Target” will consist of over 100 products for Fall 2013 featuring men’s and women’s footwear, apparel and accessories.

“One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire — one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible,”

said Lim on choosing to blend his eye for fashion with the real world prices of Target.

And with prices between $20 and $300, I am sure these affordable luxuries will fly off of the shelves as fast another designer of a “P” name.

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will be purchase ready Sept. 15. Keep your eyes right here for more.

Hey family!!!! I’m back. I had a wonderful whirlwind adventure this weekend taking in all D.C. had to offer for Inauguration!!! Though I was unable to capture Peacock quality photos of the madness, I can wrap it up by simply saying bottomless Mimosas, motion sickness intensified by food poisoning, Hookah, seeing Barack Obama sworn in for a second term, pulling a “It Happened One Night” move to catch a cab and a Biz Markie- DJ’d West Wing Inaugural Ball.  And though I was without internet access during this time, and forced to neglect you, I must say overall, it was a great four days.

To announce my return, here is the newest installment to Season 3 of “Style Pointers.” In this episode, Princess divulges her opinion on the untold rules of wearing leggings as pants.

ed. note. I am a woman with a really round, full booty. I love my butt. My grandmother says I came out of the womb with a butt, and I am compelled to agree. When I was a little girl, I hated wearing jeans because they were uncomfortable on my booty toot. God Bless my mother because I had every single color pair of “Stretchy Pants” (what I affectionately called them) and still have a love for them to this moment.

With that said, I do not fully agree with the tips of my opinionated friend. Personally, leggings were made with booty in mind. I am not ashamed of my booty, and wear it proudly like a badge of honor. So to put it plainly, yes, I am one of those women that wear short crop tops, sweaters, jackets, etc… with my leggings. I have a far larger gripe with the transparency of some leggings versus covering your butt in them. Take a moment and thoroughly examine your leggings. If you can see through them, then you really should have on a longer top to avoid being able to see your undergarments. Or you can do like me and double up. Doubling up leggings is a great idea if you have a little cellulite (if you have a little junk in the trunk, chances are you have or had). NO BIG DEAL!!! Double up your leggings to provide more coverage (no see-through situations), support your lower body (acts like Body Armour/Spanx), and you still look great because your body looks smooth.  And ladies please be advised: leggings and tights are not the synonymous. Tights are a thicker or textured version of panythose and not to be worn alone. Leggings are specifically designed to be worn as pants.

Thoughts on leggings?

First Look: Prabal Gurung For Target

prabalcollection

It speaks volumes about a designer when they are able to translate their eye for high design into mass market creations. Where chiffon, lace, & silk were at their disposal, they are forced to utilize lesser quality fabrics for execution. While some fail to attend, others rise to the occasion. Prabal Gurung stepped up and served.

Just in time for my 25th birthday (February 2nd, Aquarian Season!!!) and Valentine’s Day, this entire series has me saying to hell with taking a financial break, Mama needs some stuff!!!

“It was an exciting challenge to interpret my aesthetic into a mass-produced product, but the collection is true to my signature style,”

Said the designer of the collection available at Target February 10th. The inspiration is a “girl’s journey through the different stages of love” as expressed in the Meet The Parents & First Date prints.

Even the damn inspiration has forged an impossible smile of giddiness across this writer’s face. Think my friend, The Cheshire Cat.

Gurung has successful created a line that resonates with his gift for juxtaposing femininity with edginess as the pieces emanate with bold floral prints, flirty silhouettes, full skirts, fun shorts, mesh paneling details, and sexy yet sporty heels for days.

 “I like my collections to have femininity, with just a little bit of bite.” 

The pieces that I must snatch up include this First Date Printed Sweatshirt ($29.99) and Wedge Sandals ($29.99).
