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?

Crowns of Color

Andrea Pippins, graphic designer, illustrator, educator and creator of the super dope has created a series of limited edition prints celebrating African-American hair. Entitled, “Crowns of Color” these amazing prints were inspired by modern hairstyles, photographs, African barbershop signs, woodcuts and graphically printed textiles.




 My birthday is coming up and I am thinking “Blue Pompadour” would make an excellent gift to myself.  These fabulous prints are available on Etsy and
