FashionBuzz: Phillip Lim for Target

[caption id="attachment_2454" align="alignnone" width="947"] Target Campaign[/caption] As some of you may know, I'm sure there's been much anticipation for Phillip Lim's (industry-darling) collaboration collection for target. Although I have to say I swore I won't get overly excited anymore since my major disappointment over Prabal Gurung's one that I was counting the freaking seconds for it and realized only a few pieces of the collection actually made it to my store and everything was sold out online a couple hours later :( Anyway, I do hope they'll have a bigger stock on the awesome pieces this time! And of course that the clothes are better finished (think lining the dresses for instance!) So, let's peek some of the goodies that will be in the stores on the 15th [caption id="attachment_2456" align="alignnone" width="600"] Separates are…

VLOG: It’s a Rocky Mountain family adventure for you!

As you know I had a ton of issues with downloading my movies and editing them so while I tried to figure out what was wrong and why it was taking so long to get my videos up and running I purchased the latest iMovie version and well, I had to play with it for a minute...or two! So I made a vignette from the full version of the footage I made highlighting the Rocky Mountains. From East Vail to West Denver the short movie captures the beautiful views from the mountains as well as my energetic little family! Hahaha I hope you enjoy the footage, if you've never been to CO this will be a good reason for you to come and visit! [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Oe08-k3ESM] Full version next. I apologize for the shakiness,…

FashionBuzz: H&M Conscious – Sustainable Style Line

   So I got the email a few days ago ( might have been a week!) and I was AMAZED with H&M's  new line "Conscious - Sustainable", not only this is a great step to use up waste but also builds up consciousness in the youngsters (and oldies too) minds. Not to mention how absolutely fabulous the pieces look, seriously couture-ish like my friends and some prime material for the vintage look lovers, also one of them you can even categorize as avant-garde ;) no that's not all, the prices are also something to talk about, and most pieces are machine washable (if you're like me that means a lot!!!) CONSCIOUS - "Our vision is that business operations shall be run in a way that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable".Take a look at…

FashionBuzz: Duro Olowu for JCP

   Wow, I was blown away with this one! Against all odds being JCP not my top choice retailer when it comes to fashion forward items,  it seems like they're stepping up a notch ( or many, have you noticed the amazing commercials during the Oscars?) by bringing the Nigerian-born, London-based designer who's a master in the art of mixing prints and amazing bright colors to collaborate with their JCP Collection line. Better yet, the price point varies between $10-$90 dollars!   Take a look at some of the styles that will be offered and let them take on on a trip to Africa ;)      Besides the master skills on mixing prints Duro is giving  us the metallic sophistication with a gold/silver trench coat, summer dress, and a skirt. The line offers accessories as…

Holiday Dresses!

   New job, new life, and best of all new CLOTHES!!! That's the good and the bad of working retail, over time you acquire a fabulous wardrobe but have no money in your bank account...well, as my favorite TV character would say: I like my money right where I can see it, hanging in my closet ;)    That being said I'm only weighting my options here my friends - no judgment, please!! I tried on a couple of dresses and I can see myself wearing the black one over and over and over again, not to mention it's a Carrie type of dress, meaning it's totally my style, but the one I really really really love (and desperately want) is the emerald green lace over nude that I will probably wear twice....or hopefully manage…
