Jason Wu for Target

Two posts in a row about Target?? I can't help myself--they are doing such exciting things!

I just witnessed the new commercial for Jason Wu's much anticipated line for the chain. I don't care what it takes/how many soccer moms I need to push out of the way: I'm getting my hands on these dresses!

The Webster & The Shops at Target

Apologies for being such a bad blogger; it's been MONTHS since the last update. I'm back momentarily, inspired by my trip to The Webster in Miami this weekend.

My friend and I donned our most man-repellant outfits, and strutted over to The Webster this weekend to meet The Man Repeller. As expected, Leandra (The Man Repeller herself) was super personable, sweet, and innately stylish.

Here's a crappy iPhone pic of my neck/arm parties:

Necklaces & Bracelets: F21, J. Crew / Sweatshirt: F21 / Blouse: J.Crew

The boutique was abuzz yesterday about the upcoming collaboration between The Webster and Target. The Webster will be offering an original line of apparel/accessories/home furnishings.

Considering the carefully curated & styled pieces available at the boutique, I can't wait to see the original pieces Laure & Milan of The Webster will put forth.

May 6th can't come soon enough!

inspiration: Tulip Louise

The Glitter Guide is a daily treat in my inbox. The other day, they featured the blogger behind Tulip Louise, Anna.

She's now one of my favorite style bloggers! Just behold that delightful bow tie:

Such great fashion inspiration! Perhaps I'll take a few pointers and get out of this rut...

fall cravings

There was a "cold" front here in South Florida, and it gave me a (small) taste of fall. Now I've been inspired to update my lipsticks from neon bright to something much darker.

But how dark is too dark? I had been craving Train Bleu, a deep eggplant/wine shade available in a NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.

So far, I don't have the cojones to try this bold look. Thoughts?

january j

Today was the semi-annual Optical Style Show at my optometry school. Representatives from various vendors brought their eyeglass collections to show in full glory. It was a great way to peruse the latest styles, & to buy them at a great discount!

Once I put these on, there was no letting go:

Versace January J Collection Sunglasses

These Versace shades are from the new January J collection (style #: VE02120).

They are utterly ridiculous but I can't help myself:

Love it or hate it (the underdog's on top)?

I was perusing my local Dillards and stumbled upon the most GORGEOUS shoes:

Now, I'm craving color-blocked shoes:

spike the punch

As you may have noticed from my (very distant) past posts, I adore neon in all forms: clothes/accessories/colors in general.

These neon rhinestone necklaces from Spike the Punch have been all over the interwebs. Needless to say, I had to have my own!

This adorable package was waiting for me after a long day of class:

Of course, I opted for the brightest of them all:

The sweetest note came with my necklace. It's no wonder she has such great taste!

As you may have guessed, I'm in another style rut & was taking an extended absence from the blog. With school in full force, I've been wearing uninspired medical scrubs & blasé clinic attire.

However, I've been seeking style inspiration. My latest obsession is courtesy of J.Crew & many other sources: manly footwear. I'm thinking desert boots with a feminine twist:

The inspiration:

Clarks Originals Desert Boot

The candidates:

Seychelles Bismuth Burlap Bootie

I don't know how I feel about the burlap, but the Seychelles booties are my front-runners. Thoughts?

Native American and tribal influences are all the rage this season. I adore Proenza's take; it's refined, but still colorful & bold.

I'll have to be careful, though. One wrong step & I'll be wearing the Baby Maker:

What are your favorites this season?

rain rain, go away

Thankfully, Hurricane Irene is veering right & practically all the weather models predict very little impact to South Florida. However, my thoughts are w/ my friends and family who reside farther north.
