Jason Wu for Target

I was browsing through a couple of my favorite magazines recently, and found ads for the newest designer to contribute to Target’s  “Go International” series: Jason Wu.  The line hits Target stores on February 5, 2012 and prices range from $19.99 to $59.99.  I must admit that I never paid too much attention to his designs before, but I feel that Jason Wu gained much more attention because he’s one the First Lady’s favorite designers.  These ads really made me sit up and take notice, because of the colors, prints and especially the purses.  What do you think?  Have a great weekend!

(Want more?  They’ve got the whole collection available to view on Fashionista here.  It’s official, I’m in love with this whole line!)

Mod Hatter

This is the latest addition to my hat collection. It’s from the Albertus Swanepoel for Target line. There were so many wonderful hats from this new line, but this one spoke to me as I walked by, beckoning me to purchase it. I love the dual colors and the bow detail.  I bought this right before Thanksgiving in hopes of taking some outfit pictures while I was in Las Vegas. But alas, with so much food, family and fun, I never got around to taking any outfit pictures (well, just the ones below while getting ready for dinner; I’ll have more pictures from our family celebration later this week). I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and holiday!

Sheer & Shorts

It’s unmistakably summer here in San Diego. I wore this running around with my son, going first to the mall then to a birthday party at the park.  It was perfect because it was light, cool and I didn’t have to fuss with it at all.  Dominic and I also jumped around in one of those “bounce houses”.  The elastic at the bottom of the shirt definitely kept my shirt from going places it shouldn’t!

Target’s Go International Designer Collective: March to April 2011

Sorry for being a bit late on this news, but I was perusing my latest “People Style Watch” and saw a bit about Target’s “Go International” line (see online article here). Target announced last year that they will be presenting 34 dresses from 17 previous designers of their “Go International” line. This includes designers such as Erin Fetherston, Rodarte, Thakoon, Tucker and Zac Posen. Expected re-release will be March 13 through April 10, 2011.

I am a big fan of the Go International designers Target has chosen so far. The actual 34 dresses that are a part of this collection have not been released as of yet, so check back and I will be sure to include the latest on this exciting upcoming launch!

Update: FabSugar.com has a sneak peek of all 34 dresses (click here)!  Looks like I have a few of the dresses already, but so many that I don’t.  Thanks Jessica (her blog is Year of the Labbit) for the link!

In The Navy

I’ve fallen in love with my new pair of navy blue suede Naughty Monkey boots that I bought recently on Zappos.com (seen here). It’s no surprise that I’ve worn them almost everyday since I bought them and even wore them shopping all day two Saturdays ago. The mid-heel makes them comfortable for walking and perfect for any outfit. I wore them with jeans and leggings for a few days, then decided to try them with my pretty little bird printed dress (last seen here). The navy blue color just makes them pop against anything I’ve worn, especially black.

Outfit: Erin Fetherston for Target jacket (seen here); Burberry sunglasses; Cotton On dress; Naughty Monkey boots; Zac Posen for Target belt; Kate Spade bag; Juicy Couture ring

Velveteen Rabbit

I bought this Erin Fetherston for Target shirt awhile ago, but never found an opportunity to wear it.  Now that I’ve worn several animal-themed pieces of clothing (a bird print dress and leopard jacket come to mind), I felt that I could finally bring out my fun rabbit print shirt.  It’s also been awhile since I’ve worn this jacket.  It’s not really velvet, but it’s a fine enough corduroy that it feels like it. 

I wore the jacket and shirt with one of my favorite styles of pants:  the wide-leg.  I have several incarnations of the wide-legged pant, and these Guess jeans are one of the widest I own.  I like these types of jeans rather than the flare because they are full all the way through the leg instead of tight in the thighs up until the wide part extends from just below the knee.  I like the way the jeans were a little distressed and faded, so I couldn’t bring myself to have them tailored.  So now I just wear them with my super-high platforms, like these Jeffrey Campbell suede clogs.  But even these jeans were almost too long.  You can see my clogs barely peeking out from beneath them.

Outfit:  Unknown brand fine corduroy jacket; Bebe crown brooch; Erin Fetherston for Target shirt; Guess jeans; Jeffrey Campbell suede clogs.

Buckle Up

Thinking about meeting Alan Wilder this Saturday (see the original post here) has sparked my inner goth again, so I’ve been loving everything buckled, lace & laced, strappy, chained, zippered and studded.  It started with seeing the Dolce Vita for Target boots while shopping for necessities for my son, and the hunting went from there.  Now I’m trying to think of what to wear for my fateful meeting with Mr. Wilder, not necessarily for him, but how I want to remember my day in pictures.  I’m definitely steering away from wearing the concert/Depeche Mode shirt to the signing because I don’t want to be “that guy/girl” (PCU:  “What’s this? You’re wearing the shirt of the band you’re going to see? Don’t be that guy.“). 

I’m sure my posts for the rest of this week will be infused with dark and gothic images as well as all things musical.  I’m so very excited for Saturday!  Not only will I get to meet a personal musical idol, but I’ll be surrounded by friends who were there to witness the lifelong fandom from day one until now.
