Would you buy fashion from Target???

Now, usually I am not a fan of purchasing fashion from Target, with my biggest fear of seeing someone else wearing my outfit, and its target (ok – shoot me!). But that all changed at the beginning of the year (before I started this challenge), when Target Hot Options Exclusively for Grazia, launched their first collection.  I purchased this hot red jacket.  Here you can see me wearing it 2 ways – both very stylish  I must say!

My Target Jacket

I totally love this jacket, although the pants that came with it, just did not suite me – too matchy matchy for my liking.

I have been waiting for some time for their new collection to be launched, thinking it was sooner rather than later.  This morning I was on the Grazia website checking out how much it costs to keep Suri happy, and noticed an article for the new collection.

All I can say, is that you have to get yourself to Target – and I do seldom say that.  The collection is fabulous and the price points are even better.  Here are some of my favourite pieces from the collection! (Images care of Grazia)

Hot Options Exclusively for Grazia at Target jacket, $99 and pants, $69

Hot Options Exclusively for Grazia at Target jacket, $99, top, $49 and shorts, $59

Hot Options Exclusively for Grazia at Target top, $49 and shorts, $59

Floral and all things colourful is going to be hot going into Spring Summer 2012, so these items are perfect!

The pricing for the collection starts at $19 for a goldish skirt, which I was not too keen on, and the most expensive item is the wonderful jacket at $99.  I would suggest that you do go in store to try this collection on, as I am always weary with sizing of target brands.

You can even purchase the collection on line as well – Check it out here

I have been on holidays and it is great to be back and look forward to sharing more with you this week

Will you be purchasing anything from this collection?  What do you think of the pieces.. I want your feedback now!

Til next time ..Be Good!

 

 

 

Who’s on the cover of Vogue’s September’s issue?

Its something that is always talked about, gawd even a movie was made about it – the September issue of Vogue USA.   The cover September issue of Vogue has been leaked none other by the coveree herself – Lady Gaga!  It seems that she posted the cover on her website Little Monsters, with the comments: “SHH DONT TELL TWITTER/ SEPT ISSUE OF VOGUE MAGAZINE/ Sorry Anna but the underground kids deserve it. bisous!”

So, here is the cover. The absolutely gorgeous mermaid style dress Lady GG is wearing is from none other than Marc Jacobs.  The photography is amazing by Mert & Marcus.

Inside the issue, Lady Gaga talks about a new fragrance she is launching, as well as being a free spirit.    This is what she says “I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one’s around.  Or roll into a bar and get (bleeped) up, and dance with my top off. It’s just that no one ever sees it, because I have great real friends who never let me do it when I would get caught.”  – Just got to love her!!!

The September issue is huge – it is a whopping 916 pages and will be out on August 21.  I know that I look forward to reading it on my iPad!  Can not wait.

Have  a great weekend!

An Excessorized Life – No thanks Rachel Zoe – Not for me!

Most of you would know who Rachel Zoe is, right?  For those of you who don’t, Rachel Zoe is a celebrity stylist, who has her own reality TV show, launched her own Rachel Zoe fashion line last year, and today(well, yesterday US time) has launched her new jewellery collection exclusively at Neiman Marcus

The jewellery collection is inspired by her Mother and highly esteemed international design houses.  Zoe explains “I poured my heart into the collection so that every piece tells a story, provokes a memory or connotes a sentiment—after all, jewelry really is the most personal part of any look.”
She goes on to explain that the pieces are of quality and detail, but at an attainable price.  hmm… I wonder who she thinks it will be attainable to?

Check out her exclusive video clip

Rachel Zoe’s Jewellery Collection Exclusive to Neiman Marcus

The only piece that I came close to liking was RZ’s – Domed Deco Bracelet

RZ – Domed Deco Bracelet – $420US

This as my most favoured piece from a not so nice collection, only because I have an slight obsession with all things on my wrist.  I must agree that the quality of the pieces is great.  She uses White pave Swarovski® crystals, gold plating, and black quartz.

I can not say much for the rest of her collection.  It is a bit too gold, and art deco for me.  A bit too over the top.  and again I say GOLD… way too much.  The site describes a lot of the pieces as vintage, but I think it is way too vintage for my liking.

There are 40 pieces in her collection, ranging from ear-rings,  bracelets, chunky rings, and necklaces.  The pieces range from $195 – $650, which I think is a little exey, considering that the US isn’t exactly in a good financial position.  Is she thinking about her clients??  I am not sure.

The collection is very Rachel Zoe and has been created from her love for all things vintage.  I have not always liked her style, as I think it is TOO vintage.

The great thing about this collection is that Neiman Marcus ships internationally, so if you love any of the RZ pieces or anything from Neiman Marcus (and who doesn’t), you can get it.  Just love Neiman Marcus

I encourage you all to check out Rachel Zoe’s latest collection and let me know what you think.

Have a great day!
