Prabal Gurung for Target: My Review

14 Feb

Morning Beauties,

I hope you all had a good weekend! To my New England beauties I hope you and your loved ones made it through the storm safe and sound.

This weekend didn’t just bring about the fifth largest storm in the history in Boston’s history it also brought about the release of the Prabal Gurgung for Target collection! While most people would shop online in the confines of their warm, cozy home, I decided to physically go to Target to shop the collection. Snowstorm be damned! After searching the inventory of my closest Target stores, I realized the I would have to drive to the Dorchester or South Bay Target for my Gurung fix.

After some slipping and sliding across the roads my sister and I arrived at Target with full expectations of shopping till we dropped. Needless to say we shopped, but we didn’t drop. I picked up two pieces the  sweatshirt in First Date (aka  floral) print and the long sleeve t-shirt in Nolita print.

My sister purchased the same long sleeve Nolita print t-shirt in addition to the Nolita print shirt dress.

My review of the overall collection

When I first saw the lookbook for this collection I was very excited but you know how it can go, the lookbook makes you super excited then you head to the store and the pieces just don’t speak to you in the same way. However, upon seeing this collection in the stores I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. I was hoping to purchase more items for the collection however, the Target I went to did not have the full collection in stock and unfortunately by the time I arrived at the store which was only around 1pm quite a few things I liked were sold out in my size. According to  Target employees what was on the floor was all that was available. The collection also ran a bit large  so I wasn’t able to just go up a size. Overall,  I feel it was a solid collection, fantastic prints, pretty good materials all for a reasonable price.The collection is pretty much sold out-online and from what I understand Target will not be restocking the any of the items.

Did you score anything from the Prabal Gurung Collection?

A Natural Hair Event for My New England Ladies

18 Jan

Happy Friday!

Yesterday, I received an email on behalf of the natural hair salon Luv My Natural Curls Boutique inviting myself and my followers to their 2013 Seeds of Luv Natural Hair Fashion Show. The email stated, “The purpose of the event is to empower and motivate women to embrace their natural beauty. To help them build a stronger hair regimen and gain knowledge on how to live a healthier lifestyle. Our Guest Speaker will be Audrey Davis, author of “Science of Black Hair Care”. This event will take place at Lombardo’s Function Facilities, one of Boston’s Finest Venues. This event consists of: 3 course meal, passed hors’douvers/ champagne fountain, Shopping/Vendor discounts, Lots of Entertainment, Door prizes, Lots of product samples and raffle giveaways. A portion of the proceeds will be going to the Lupus and Breast Cancer Foundation. We understand that many women who survive these types of diseases tend to still die from within. They do not feel beautiful enough and they become self-conscience about whether they are “woman enough” or“beautiful enough” for society’s standards. We want to bring awareness to the fact that ‘TRUE BEAUTY’ is not about “body image” but the IMAGE you represent for the BODYof Christ.”

 Limited Early Bird Tickets at $40 are going FAST!!! Tickets will be $75 after January 31st. TICKETS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE! ( The website lists 2 ticket prices a $40 ticket and a $60 VIP ticket). Tickets can be purchased on the their website http://www.luvmynaturalcurls.com/ or through EventBrite.

I know it’s November but I wasn’t ready for this Nor’Easter. Last year I gave away my Northface and I am now in  need of a new puffer coat. I am in love with the options below espcially the Alice and Olivia coat (1st coat).

Currently Craving Leather!

11 Sep

I am loathe to admit it but summer is pretty much over and although we may have a few warm weeks ahead of us it is time to start packing away those summer clothes and looking ahead to fall fashion. In the next few weeks I am going to showcase some of the trends I am loving for fall, first up leather. Ah leather, that buttery soft material that can make you look tough, chic, sophisticated and oh so sexy. This fall I am in love with all things leather faux and for real.
