Missoni for Target – My Picks

by Jamie Sanford on August 12, 2011

Target has released the look book for the upcoming Missoni collaboration on their Target Style Facebook page.

Naturally, I felt the need to pick favorites, to prepare myself for potential online shopping – I don’t dare attempt to go into a store to find things.

Let’s get on with my Missoni for Target picks.

These heels.  Mostly black but with a little something, a heel I won’t fall over in, and a gorgeous print on the inside? I’m in.

I don’t have kids, and I don’t know anyone with a baby girl that’s still a baby and not a toddler. However, I wish I did because this is the cutest little outfit!

So far, Missoni for Target is making me covet things that aren’t in my life, like little girls and a guest room for this fabulous bedding.

This robe isn’t just for bedtime right? I kind of want to wear it with a tank top underneath.

My response to things that are black and white is pretty Pavlovian.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but we went with black and white for our wedding (since I wear black 98% of the time, and I couldn’t get away with wearing black to my own wedding, it seemed like the best alternative) so I gravitate toward all things black and white.

Right, remember what I said about the black and white? That rug is calling my name.

Since heinous rain in NYC finished off my umbrella this week, I need a new one.  This is the only Missoni for Target item that I could justify purchasing out of actual need.

I don’t have any outdoor space, but now I need a patio to go with this patio set.  This is not much of a stretch from things I usually want from Target, I have been known to sit and relax in the patio furniture section when they have everything set up and fabulous. Of course I need a giant tent to hang out in all summer.

The full Missoni for Target lookbook can be seen here.  The collection comes into stores and Target.com on September 13th.

Skeletons: They aren’t just for Halloween anymore

by Jamie Sanford on November 8, 2010

Striped and Fabulous.

Kelly Kreth

(Today’s guest post was contributed by Kelly Kreth. I “met” Kelly online around 10 years ago, and since then she’s made me jewelry, she’s been the subject of one of the best photos I’ve ever taken, and thoroughly kicked my ass in Facebook Scrabble.  Check out her new blog which explores optimism and pessimism with great humor and frankness.)

Last year at this time I was entranced by a dress created by Rodarte for Target. After seeing it online and in print, I was dying to buy one. It was a sleeveless black tunic shift, sequined and had a print of a human rib cage on it.

Alas, when I finally got to a Target (this was before the Manhattan Target existed) they were all gone. Many were listed on Ebay but were being auctioned for around triple the actual price. Instead I tried to find a substitute and came up with another rib cage dress posted on Ebay, this one for only $16.99. I chanced it and wore it this summer.

Coincidentally, I later found a whole rack of brand new Rodarte rib cage dresses at the Good Will a few months later and they were only priced at $25.00. Much to my dismay, after trying one on, it felt way too cheap and didn’t fit well so I’m happy I didn’t purchase it from Target or Ebay prior to trying it on.

Which gets me to today’s wish list item:

This Devastee Skeleton print dress is available here and goes for a whopping $317.

About the designers:

Created by young French designers Ophélie Klère and François Alary in 2004, Dévastée is a fashion house that draws inspiration from the dark, the depressive and the macabre. Their lines, entirely black and white, are eloquently understated and feature wearable graphic prints and sleek tailoring.

It is 100% wool and comes in European sizes which is always a plus. Telling someone I am a 38 makes me feel thinner!
