Purple & Ombre – Two more trends that go well together

If you flip though any fashion magazine these days they will tell you Purple is the IT color for Fall 08. I’m on board with that. I love a deep jewel tone to balance out the sometimes dreary weather and just as dreary colored clothes that appear in Fall.

Imagine my surprise as I was surfing Targaayy (Target for you regualr folks…LOL) when I came upon some cool (and cheap) Purple items. Many of them included two other trends you know I love patent and Ombre. So I figured I would share them with you because I love to help people look stylish and if it can be done cheaply all the better ;).

Purple & Ombre

Xhilaration® Ombre Satchel – Purple (Small $16.99

Xhilaration® Ombre Tote Bag – Purple $19.99

Women’s Mossimo® Deann Ombre Patent Flats – Purple $13.99

Purple lovers only

Jasmine Small Bag – Deep Purple $16.99

Richard Chai for Target® Colorblock Tie Dress – Passion Purple $44.99

Richard Chai For Target® Printed Broken-Stripe Trench Coat – Purple/ Ebony $44.99

Loving a bargain myself I ordered the Ombre Satchel and the Jasmine Small Bag.

If you can guess how much this jewelry is, I’ll send you the piece of your choice?

As I was wandering the great streets of NYC the other day, I came upon a store that was selling jewelry at unbelievable prices. Granted some of these pieces may not look that expensive but I think others look like they cost more than what I paid for them. So here is the challenge I put towards you readers: The first person who correctly guesses how much I paid for each of these items wins one of the items (the winner can pick the item). Good Luck.

Target’s designers Jovovich-Hawk need to GO!!

I’ve loved many of the designers and lines Target has gotton for their Go International collection. I think it is a much needed category and it injects much needed items into our Fashion industry. I own a Proenza Schouler Corset tank top, a Patrick Robinson white eyelet dress and two Erin Fetherston jackets. I adore all of the items and constantly get compliments on them. But I gotta say that Target’s latest designers Jovovich-Hawk just doesn’t do it for me.

I’ve tried to like their line for Target but it still has not grown on me. I think that is because their items look cheap and not special to me. Whereas many of the other Go designers for Target’s lines were cheap but didn’t look it and many of them looked very special as though they could have stepped off of the designers high priced label runways. While I liked some of the prints Jovovich-Hawk used, I didn’t like the silhouettes they choose.

Here is an example of an eyelet fabric I loved when Patrick Robinson used it awhile ago but I don’t like the jacket they designed with it. I do think the sleeve design is right on trend but that is it.

Here is an example of some prints that I thought were cute for Spring but I don’t like the dress or the top they used them in:

Here is an example of a fabric and silhouette I don’t like. I think this looks cheap and I wouldn’t think this had a designer behind it. More like I could find this at $10 store. Look at it next to the Proenza Schouler Corset tank top. One looks like a designer item and the other doesn’t:

What do you think?

CBS News did a story on these suits and some similar products called Clothes For The 21st Century, Stainproof, Wrinkleproof, Sweatproof And More…! In it they say:

A new company called One Suit has cornered the market on cheap and
accessible suits. The suits are all one-size-fits-all and are
disposable. These adjustable – and pretty sexy – suits cost only $10.
Because they’re so inexpensive (and unlined) they’re the perfect
