Designer-Inspired Stacked Heels At A Pauper’s Price

Take a good look at this shoe. It is reminiscent of a number of different designer heels currently being featured in magazines and sold at expensive retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop. Amazingly, however, these stacked heeled sandals — which would look so cute with everything from skinny jeans to a floaty sundress — are from… More »


Nesting: I’m Back, Baby! Check Out How I’ve Decorated My New Bedroom

It took three months, 612 moving boxes (or thereabouts), and the very last smidgen of my sanity, but this weekend I moved out of my parents’ house (where I’d been staying after a bad breakup) and back to New York City in a “single girl” apartment again.

I’m baaaaaaaack, bitches!

However,… More »


First Look: William Rast For Target

Target’s latest collaboration is out. The tomboyish denim line William Rast created men’s and women’s looks for the retailer, and to be honest? Yawn. Except we can’t help checking it out simply because Justin Timberlake helped launch William Rast, and since that man has a knack for making anything sexy …

On the other… More »


Is Re-Releasing Collections Lazy Or Awesome?

So it would seem that the biggest trend in retailing since the designer collaboration is the re-release. In the past few weeks we’ve heard of three major brands doing replays of past collections. Target is coming out with a “greatest hits” range from previous Go International lines while Marni and Marc by Marc Jacobs have… More »


Target To Replay Classics From Go International Collections

Collab crazy? Then you’ll be happy to hear that Target is reproducing looks from past Go International collections this February. The line will be a mix of the best designer collaborations including Rodarte, Luella Bartley, Rogan, Libertine, Rogan, Richard Chai, and Proenza Schouler (and more, apparently!). So … which Target collection was your favorite? Anything… More »


Australians: Mind Sending Us A Stella McCartney For Target Care Package?

Way back in the day when mass retailer and designer collaborations were merely a fledgling idea—well, 2005, specifically—Stella McCartney designed a line for H&M. Since then, we’ve been waiting for the moment of Stella’s return to the mass spotlight. Turns out the British designer is doing a collab (hooray!), but she’s doing it in Australia… More »


Get The Look: In The Navy

With all of the trends that last five whole seconds, it’s nice to see a designer working with classic color and creating something totally fresh. Giorgio Armani’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection was a sea of navy in many different shades and textures. He mixed chiffon and lace with patent leather, crochet, satin and twill. It is… More »


Activist Hippies Invade Target

Just because hippies live in houses made of hemp and are ignorant in the ways of modern hair removal doesn’t mean they’re clueless about technology. After finding out that Target had donated money to the campaign of Minnesota governor candidate Tom Emmer, who is anti-gay marriage and anti-abortion, a group of activists stormed a… More »


Target Is Partnering With Gilt Groupe — Sales Start Tomorrow!

You know how Target tries to make its designer collaborations seem exclusive, but oftentimes only one or two pieces from a given collection are drool-worthy? Well, the super retailer is trying even harder to sell you on the idea that these collaborations offer “luxury” items at an affordable price. Target is partnering with Gilt Groupe,… More »


First Look: Tucker For Target

What to shop come September: Target’s latest collaboration with Gaby Basora’s line, Tucker. Tucker has been around for a few years now, and is known best for its signature flowy silk blouses adorned with vintage-inspired floral prints, which you’ll find in high end stores like Barneys (meaning we don’t actually own anything by Tucker). On… More »


Justin Timberlake’s William Rast Teams With Target

Having perused the men’s section at Target a few times, I’ve come to the conclusion that male shoppers of the retailer like their clothes boring and tame. Khakis, striped polos, and cargo pants abound. The section is nothing like the women’s department, where Target has figured out how to cater to the soccer moms and… More »


First Look: Target X Harlem

Just when you thought the designs from Target’s designer collaborations were becoming both boring and too outrageous, Target teams up with Isabel and Ruben Toledo and Stephen Burrows for the collection Target X Harlem. The mega-retailer seems to have been influenced by the neighborhood of one of its newest stores, which is set to open… More »


Does Nina Garcia’s New Target Affiliation Make You Respect Her More Or Less?

Nina Garcia of Project Runway, Elle, and Marie Claire fame has signed on to be Target’s “fashion expert.” The role will mean more videos for Target’s website and StyleBoutique blog, repping new developments for Target brands like Mossimo, and offering tips and tricks for making the most of the store’s budget clothes. This is a… More »


Is Target Knocking Off TOMS Shoes?

I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of TOMS shoes for a while … but not from Target. Browsing the shoe department at Tar-jay this weekend, I noticed a cute pair of navy-and-white striped canvas loafers with a straight cut across the top of the foot. Very nautical, very Connecticut. One problem: they look a… More »


Isabel Toledo Swimwear For Target Is Too Cute!

Unlike Michelle Obama, you’ll probably never wear an outfit by Isabel Toledo while watching your husband be inaugurated as president. But Tar-jay looks out for us little people! Isabel Toledo and her husband, Ruben, have designed a swimwear collection which goes on sale at Target.com on August 1. Five percent of the proceeds from the… More »


Not A Joke: Cynthia Rowley To Make Designer Diapers

It’s official: Fashion diapers are now a trend. First Huggies came onto the scene with their hipster-fied denim diapers. Now news has just broke that Cynthia Rowley will collaborate with Pampers to design a line of the baby panties, to be sold at Target come mid-July. Her second collab with the mass retailer, this one… More »


Next Up: Target And Mulberry Collab

Another day, another designer collab. And yet, we never tire of hearing about them. The latest news: Target has tapped Mulberry (known best for its iconic padlock purse, pictured) to do a line of handbags, due in U.S. stores Oct. 10. This is good news for the collaboration business because Mulberry is a standard luxury… More »


I Survived The Cynthia Vincent For Target Debut

I’m not really one to wait in line for hours in the hopes of spending money on so-and-so’s designer collaboration. One, I don’t really enjoy owning something that thousands of other women own too. Two, why should I wait in line to spend my money? Three, the construction of most designer/retail chain items is really… More »


Target Announces New Designers, But Who Are They?

Tonight marks the launch of Zac Posen’s 24-hour Target pop-up shop in New York City where fashion lovers will have the chance to purchase their favorite looks, but the store’s already looking forward at their two newest designers. We already introduced you to one of the upcoming creators, Gaby Basora, explaining how you’ll fall for… More »


J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons On Why It’s OK To Miss Out On Designer Collabs

We’ve been a little bummed that we’re not obsessive enough to stay up all night in order to score pieces from Target’s recent designer collaborations, but J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons puts things in perspective. In an interview with Style.com, Jenna shared how she feels about designers doing “affordable” lines for mass retailers:
