Prabal Gurung for Target Launches Feb 10th

I LOVE Prabal. I met him once at an event I was producing a few years back and was literally so in aww of him, I couldn’t speak. His designs slay me… and come February 10th, I can afford them! That’s right, he’s doing a collaboration with Target and instead of the price tags reflecting upwards of $1500, this collection starts at $15! With over 80+ looks (we’re talking clothes, bags, shoes and accessories), here are some of my favorites:

Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil Set ($32, $75 value) – In a world where eyeliner pencils are generally harder formulas, I’m grateful for Laura Mercier’s Kohl Eye Pencils, which glide on smoothly and have a much softer formula then other brands on the market. It”s easy to apply on the inside lining of the eyelid & the base of the lashes for a stand alone look, or it can be smudged and worked onto the eyelid for a smokey effect. This set comes in 5 Shades include Stormy Grey, Black Violet, Brown Copper, Black Gold and Black Navy.

Incase Capsule headphones ($49.95) – These are a great set of portable headphones for any commuters or travelers on your list. Both stylish and practical, they come with three different eartip sizes that are interchangeable for your most optimal comfort and fit. The audio cable features an integrated mic and remote to control audio playback and works with for sound and calls with Apple products (iPhone, iPod, iPad and MacBook).

Everlane The Solid Tote ($35) – I love this website. Everlane offers really great basics that can be worn on repeat without them getting tired. It’s an ease tote that fits comfortably over the shoulder, for carrying anything from groceries to your laptop. 

PC Celebrates Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday 24 Collection #Holiday24

There’s no doubt about it, last night Target blew it out of the water at the launch party for the Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration. I was so excited to be invited to this event, all I’ve ever wanted was to be able to shop Neiman Marcus at Target prices.

The collaboration which features over 50 gifts from 24 of the most coveted American designers (we’re talking Prabal Gurung, Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, DVF, Proenza Schouler, Jason Wu, Rodarte, Tory Burch…) priced between $7.99 – $499.99, with most items under $60.

The event was to die for! Two floors of designer goods, interactive floor models (on girl was biking in place, while another was knitting the most giant fabric I’ve ever seen in the window), and most of the designers we’re in the house, walking the floor — I nearly passed out — too many of my heroes in one space. The champagne was flowing and the guests we’re taking advantage of the sneak peek to shop the collection before it’s December 1st launch date!

Karlie Kloss, was the face of the #Holiday24 campaign and the first person I saw at the event (looking ever as stunning in a black dress with star sparkles). I wasn’t about to miss the opportunity to ask her who she was wearing and her must-have beauty product for the season. The answer, “I’m wearing

Boots: More Trusted Than The Queen

Last week, I had the pleasure of joining Britain’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer, Boots for an evening of pampering, complete with manicures, skincare consultants and cosmetic advisors.  Hosted at the Norwood Club in NYC, Steve Llyod, (CEO of Boots) and Sandra Gabriele (their VP of Marketing & Communications) introduced myself and fellow beauty bloggers to the UK brand and their No7 collection.

Here’s some fun facts I found out.

  • 1 in 7 UK women owns a Boots No7 product.
  • Boots is the original creator of ibuprofin in 1969.
  • Boots and No7 specifically is Britain’s #1 skincare and cosmetic brand (bigger then L’Oreal, Olay..).
  • The No. 7 Protect & Perfect Serum ($23) is their best seller in the US and abroad! One is sold every 8 seconds at Target.
  • Studies show the No. 7 Protect & Perfect Serum actually visible reduces the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles and as you continue to use it the more effective it becomes. And won the Good Housekeeping Anti-Aging award for Best Anti-Aging Serum .
  • Target carries 6 Boots brands: No7, Botanics, Destination Brand, Boots Original Beauty Formula, Expert, Time Dimensions and Hawaiian Islands/Mediterranean/Amazon Forest Bath & Body.

After the speeches, I took some time out with Steve Llyod, CEO of Boots to ask a few more question:

The UK is obviously your largest market. Where does the US rank?

The thing about the US is that it’s a huge market so one of the advantages of being in Target and going national is you can have access to a lot of people. The US is the 3rd biggest in terms of beauty sales.  We’re Thailand’s largest pharmacy chain and they rank just above the US, but we’ve been there for 15 years. Boots has only been national in the US since 2007.  And the US market has nearly caught up to Thailand so it will likely overtake them next year.

Any plans to expand in the US beyond Target?

Yes, in the 1st qtr calendar we will have an additional retail partner. I just can’t tell you which one it is; but it’s a national chain.

Will you be in all of their locations or select ones? Can I guess the retailer?

We will be

Tavi – The Little Blogger that Could


I am immensely impressed and taken by Tavi, the 13yr old blogger/fashionista, who founded ‘Style Rookie Blog’.  I have been following Tavi for quite some time now as she earned her way into the spotlight.  Through her impressive writing skills and content worthy posts, she’s been awarded global recognition, and a collaboration with Target for their line with Rodarte. View collection HERE.

See Tavi in action at the Rodarte for Target line HERE.

I pretty much lost it while watching this video; she’s amazing!  It’s difficult to consider this young lady a rookie, and incidentally I’m not entirely sure that title is still valid considering Tavi will has a featured column in January’s Harper’s Bazaar — So remarkable, and well deserved.  What an inspiration!

I would like to meet her parents.
