One of my favorite pass times is perusing the interweb for inspiring editorials. This one that I came across from French Vogue November 2009 is so amazing. Body paint has been done over and over, weight loss
but I loved the combination of Native Warrior and Circus Chic.  Enjoy!

Billy Reid’s Fall 2013 Collection

by kristy

So it begins; New York Fashion week. My first of many posts is Billy Reid’s fall 2013 collection. Mr. Reid is known for completing his Men’s RTW line before he starts his Women’s. This year, drugstore with his largest women’s offering yet (18 looks), stomach stated that he worked on both men’s and women’s simultaneously. Reid also proclaimed that his women’s RTW had a large influence on his men’s. Interesting. Both lines have a palette of warm browns, forest greens, aubergines, and deep wines. Both lines have a English Hunting vibe with a rustic/woodsy twist. I dig it!

Home Stretch

by kristy

Like every other woman, illness I like designer pieces for less.  Prabal Gurung is following in the stylish footsteps of power house designers Jason Wu and Missoni, web by launching a collection of women’s clothing and accessories for Target. There will be about 80 pieces, including necklaces, earrings, handbags, dresses and blazers featuring Gurung’s statement prints and expert fits. Gurung says: “The collection is inspired by a girl’s journey through the different stages of love and the clothes she wears during each milestone—from the initial first crush all the way to the engagement. Both the apparel and accessories in this collection include pieces that can be worn for each of these occasions and more!”

On my wish list are those adorable (and I dare say comfortable looking) slight wedge sandals,  I want them in both colors (I’m a size 7 if you get there before me)!! With the great styles and wallet friendly prices, they are predicting a near instant sellout like Missoni’s for Target. February 10th is launch day, so mark your calendars ladies!
