Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to be quite the vintage clothing huntress. Finding a kickass sale with a few good finds in my size gave me an unbelievable cheap thrill. Every weekend, I’d wake up early and drive to whatever estate sale promised a cache of clothing. One day, I entered a room at an estate sale and saw a woman who was picking up items of clothing indiscriminately and shoving them into bags. Keep reading »
Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi’s new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target.
And it’s a philosophy they’ve fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I’ve used it daily since December and I’m already fretting about whether I’ll be able to procure a new one at Target when I’ve used it all up. I’m sure it will sell out. Keep reading »
A lot of celebrity collaborations are ridiculous to the point of insulting (the one by Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz springs to mind) but, if we were to imagine a celebrity-designed collection that actually made sense, Dita von Teese doing lingerie wouldn’t be far off. The burlesque superstar designed a 26 piece capsule collection for Target Australia, to hit stores early February (pre-Valentine’s Day).
The collection, Von Follies by Dita von Teese, will feature “five groups of called balconette bras, high-cut briefs, G-strings, garters, bustiers and fitted corsolettes rendered in leopard-print satin with eyelash lace detail, red satin with delicate black lace trim and black lace with intricate ribbon detailing and signature Dita blue treatments. There will also be spot-pattern mesh overlay effects on nude and black grounds, as well as sexy looking nude and black fishnet,” according to WWD. Read more…
UPDATE: Squee! It’s here! Every single piece from the Jason Wu for Target lookbook is online, so I’ve updated the slideshow. Donations for the “Jessica Wants Every Item In The Jason Wu For Target Collection” now being accepted.
I know what I’m doing at 6 a.m. on February 5: elbowing any bitch that gets in between me and the items I’m obsessed with from the Jason Wu for Target collection. Jason Wu’s new line is inspired by femininity in French New Wave films and you see it everywhere, from the bows to the stripes to the A-line skirts. There’s even a cute kitty named Milu, who Jason Wu has called his muse, appearing in the ad campaign! All the clothes are priced between $10 and $60, which will be good on my wallet after the holidays. Unfortunately, an actual lookbook of Jason Wu for Target has not yet been released; the folks at Tar-jay are being cruel and evil, only leaking out one or two photos at a time. Oh, why do you toy with me?! These are the pics that I’ve found online. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to plot my shopping strategy in case this devolves into Missoni for Target redux.
Don’t let sparkles be just for New Year’s Eve. Bat your eyes all year long with Sonia Kashuk for Target’s “Pretty In Pink” eye palette. The powders are metallic, but not glittery, in pinkish hues that scream “pretty,” not “drag queen.” (Not that there’s anything wrong with drag queens! It’s just not an office look for most of us.) The best part of this palette is Sonia Kashuk will donate 15 percent of each product purchased to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Charitable giving? That’s truly beautiful.
