Target Does It Again...

Good thing my boy's Sunday school is near a Target...I got to check out the Prabal Gurung collection shortly after it hits the floors.  There are not many Sunday mornings I appreciate the early wake-up, but last Sunday I was pretty happy to get to Target before everything got picked over!



Overall, I was really impressed with the collection.  When I arrived at 9:00am, there were most sizes of everything available.  I tried on a few of the dresses and was surprisingly impressed with the quality and weight of the materials...it seemed a bit more substantial, less flimsy than previous collections and everything seemed to fit pretty true to size.  I loved the Meet the Parents print dress, but decided not to buy it since I really don't have anywhere to wear it to right now.  I was really looking forward to trying on the Calypso Coral dress, but my store did not have any...I think I am going to have to order it, now I know how the dresses fit.   After trying on a few items, the finals for purchase were the black lace front blouse )love the leather collar) and and the long sleeve t in the Nolita print.  I ended up going home with the Nolita print t... it fits into my casual wardrobe perfectly.  Footwear wise, they only had those two pairs and I really wanted the red sandals...
I think I am going to have to hit up the other Target by my house and see if they have some of the other pieces I am lusting over!

So, I decided to style up my new shirt for a casual Monday of carpool and running errands.






Top-Prabal Gurung for Target/Sweater-The Limited/Boots-OTBT/Jeans-Wit & Wisdom/Jewelry-Black Sheep, The Limited

Since this top and its print has a personality of its own, I decided to make it the key piece in my outfit and keep the rest simple with the black jeans, small gold spike necklace and black moto boots.  Since it was a chilly day out, I topped my new top with a chunky sweater.

I have so many thoughts on how to style this top...I cannot wait to have a reason to dress it up with a skirt...I am thinking black lace pencil skirt...

I got the floral long sleeve t-shirt, but I'm still waiting for it to come in the mail. We had bad weather on Sunday, so I shopped online. I like the shirt that you got too, but it was sold out online.

This top is so fun and will be a great piece for remixing. I have my eye on the caged sandals :) Heather

Ooh I was not aware the lace-front blouse had a leather collar. Intriguing! The Nolita print is so cool - pairing it with a black lace skirt sounds like a great idea. Good luck finding the red sandals! I thought they fit true to size if you end up needing to order them online.
