Happy Friday, lovies! So, my mom takes almost all my pictures for the blog and she’s pretty freakin’ fantastic, considering she’s not a professional photog. However, she has this habit of going click happy sometimes and the outcome is – bloopers! I wanted to share some of em with you today.

Happy Thirsty Thursday, lovies! So, do any of you guys know how to interpret dreams? Sometimes, I have the craziest dreams and I have no idea why. Case in point – the dream I had last night. It’s like I was basically in that movie 2012 – floods everywhere, people running for their lives, lights going out, everyone screaming. It was kinda scary and I wonder why I had such a dream and what it means. Maybe it’s because things have been very chaotic for me the past couple weeks?

Anyways, on to the outfit – I’m so excited to debut my favorite skirt from the Prabal Gurung for Target collection! I love everything about this skirt – it’s such a great basic piece!

PS – Stop by tomorrow for my trend predictions for the Oscars this Sunday, and the 20 dresses I would love to see on the red carpet!

Skirt: Prabal Gurung for Target / Top: Gap / Necklace: TJ Maxx / Grey Suede Pumps: Aldo’s
Watch: BCBG MaxAzria / Bow Ring: Charlotte Russe / Minaudiere: Steve Madden / Nails: Essie Playdate
As mentioned in my review of the PG for Target collection, a lot of the pieces were a bit matronly, in my opinion. This print, aptly named Meet the Parents, is very conservative. So, I decided to pair the skirt with some brights to make it a fun look!  How would you style this skirt?

The much anticipated Prabal Gurung for Target collection finally launched a little over a week ago and I was beyond excited! I saw the lookbook and fell in love with every look! The Target stores by me are closed on Sundays so the day this collection launched, I woke up at 7 am and tried to order items online. But the one item I just HAD to have – Dress 1 – was already sold out online, by 7 am!

I tried my luck at two different Target stores on Monday and finally got the dress! Anyways, between the stores and the site, I ended up getting these 9 items –

After all the excitement and anticipation, I hate to admit that I was not thrilled. I was actually pretty disappointed. I wasn’t impressed by the fit of the clothes. I ended up getting Dress 1 in size 2 and I’m most certainly not size 2. Even beyond that, the dress just made my hips look way too big! The same goes for the red dress, although it’s not as bad as the white floral dress. I got the 2 blouses and the sweater in size S (I had also ordered all 3 in M for safe measure) and all 3 items ended up being way too big! The blouses also have a hi-low hem, which I’m not a fan of. The drop waist dress doesn’t work on my body so I won’t say much about that, except that it runs really big!

Now onto the items I actually liked. The coral & aqua dress isn’t one I had originally planned on buying but I picked it up anyways and it was a pleasant surprise. I love how it fits but I had to get it in size 6. See what I mean when I say the fit was all cooky? I also love the skirt – although the print and color are very conservative, the silhouette is great! The lace-up pumps are also great! So, I’m going to keep those 3 items.

Overall, judging from the items I have tried, I think the collection is almost matronly and not very flattering or sexy. Everything was cut too big (except the white floral dress) and too long! In terms of fit, I feel lit the collection was not designed for real women. I was mostly disappointed about the white floral dress didn’t work out because I had planned on wearing it for my birthday next month! :(

Did you guys buy anything from this collection? What did you think about it?

“One thing I kept on coming back to, was the idea of love – whether it’s having it, pining for it, losing, wanting it. Most of the collection that I do, has been inspired by love.”
– Prabal Gurung, on his collection for Target.
From the minute I heard about this collab, I was in love. When I saw the lookbook, I could feel the love. Prabal Gurung is one of my absolute favorite designers and Target has always done a fabulous job with their designer collabs (except the one with Neiman Marcus – that was awful!). I can see myself falling in love, wearing one of the dresses from this collection. Seriously, I’m kind of obsessed with this collection. Ok, I’ll stop talking about it now and just share some of my favorite pieces.
Btw, for all the men – this collection comes out just in time for Valentine’s Day – on 2/10. Any piece from this collection is a winning Valentine’s Day gift – you can thank me later! :)
1. Dress with full skirt in Floral Crush print – $49.99
2. Dress with full skirt in Apple red and black – $49.99
3. Flat Sandals – $29.99
4. Lace-up pumps in Meet The Parents print – $39.99
5. Pintuck Dress – $49.99

Here’s the tricky part for me – If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know that I’m going to try and go on a shopping hiatus for two months, starting 1/15. Of course, this collection comes out smack in the middle of this hiatus, on 2/10. So, needless to say, I’m already going to cheat. At least, it’ll be worth it, right? Have y’all checked out the collection yet? Do you plan on buying any of the pieces? Please share!!
