And My Soul Cries Yes!!! The Official Lookbook Of #AltuzarraForTarget


I think Target really understands how to merge high fashion appeal with mass market prices. In the past, I have waxed on and on about their beautiful creations that make me unapologetically salivate (see: Prabal, Phillip, Peter). So it’s no surprise that the Altuzarra collaboration continues to perpetuate my praise.

Target Launches Bridal Gown Collection


Wedding season has reared its ugly head is upon us, and brides are finishing those last minute touches before they stroll down the aisle on their big day.

While many a bride dreams of looking like a life size cupcake finding the perfect dress to say their “I Do’s,” reality snaps these garter wearers back to life when the price tag exposes several numerical places, frequently including a comma.

But alas, Target has premiered the Tevolio bridal collection, an all in one haven for the “no-fuss (and affordable) approach to their big day.”





The amassment includes 4 bridal gowns and 10 bridesmaid dresses from sizes 2 to 28. And for your flower girl, Target has even supplied 2 dresses for the little lady in mind.

Target provides their customers with an extensive fabric glossary with every available color and texture available.


Stumped on jewelry choices? Target has you covered as well. Purchase your jewelry, shoes, “foundation undergarments,” stationary and even setup your registry, all right at the click of a button.

Prices start at $24.99 with a peak of $129.99.

Phillip Lim To Create Collection With Target


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.

First Look: Kate Young For Target


High off of the success of the Prabal Gurung For Target collaboration, Target is revving their engines in preparation for the Kate Young For Target release.

Much like the stylist‘s own personal style, the collection is all about conservative sexiness, with pieces that veer on the side of vintage femininity with a modern day rebellious flair.

A preference for A-line? Be pretty in pink with a belted ensemble or take a black pleated skirt with tulle overlay for a spin.



Looking for a transformable semi-formal to black tie look?  Lots of wears for those of you gearing up for wedding season. Stand out in 80’s prom dress-esque designs and “Pretty Woman” looks that can be a fun change from the usual.







Round collared, school girl dresses are daring with its ultra conservative approach. Note: Pair with edgy accessories to take some of the “safe” away and give you an unexpected element of coolness.



I am here for these sheer tops with sateen cuffed shorts. Yes ma’am. Way to take things in a different direction from the dainty but dignified looks above. And is this tuxedo vest jumpsuit not everything and more? Let the church say Amen.

First Look: Prabal Gurung For Target


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).



Also in view are the First Date Sleeveless Blouse ($26,99)  and Floral Crush print dress with full skirt ($49.99).



Top of the list are most definitely The Pintuck Dress ($49.99) and the Ankle-Strap Pumps ($39.99).



These offers are too good to pass up.  The price range is from $19.99 – $199.99 and will be available until March 23rd or while supplies last. Visit your local Target stores or online!!!
