Prabal Gurung For Target

I mis-planned our California trip a bit. Sure, we were there for Danny’s birthday and the great weather but we missed the launch of Prabal Gurung for Target! One of my favorite designers. One of my favorite stores. And we missed it by a week!

My mom picked me up some Missoni for Target items in 2011 and I was able to pick them up on my next trip. I loved what I got but was a bit disappointed at how fast everything flew out the stores. I had no idea the line would be so popular and that things would go so quickly due to Ebay sellers. This time I was ready. I stalked the Lookbook and on February 10 woke up early to place my order. Prabal Gurung’s floral prints are among my favorite and his Target line has some great ones – ‘Floral Crush’ and ‘First Date’ in particular. I had my eye on the sweatshirt in ‘First Date” print and a dress or top in ‘Floral Crush’.

I think I scored. My top two picks are now sold out.

I had trouble deciding between the ‘Floral Crush’ dress and the top, but ultimately went with the top as I already have a bright floral fit and flare dress and I’ve been wanting a peplum top in my wardrobe for awhile now. It’s quite a busy top – bright florals, white background, black trim, peplum – but I think it’ll go great with dark skinny jeans and the heels I bought.

Going to try and keep the flats ‘good’. Glasgow’s rain and grit absolutely tear up all my flats. I now have everyday, walk-to-work flats and dress up flats. I also have heels that have been walked to death on the cobblestones (mostly all of them) and one pair of pristine peach suede platforms that have barely seen the light of day. I never knew how well my shoes had it when I was in California!

And finally, one of my favorite dress shapes, one of the best colours. I have a dress like this in navy blue and wear it ALL THE TIME.

Don’t think this will turn into a fashion blog but Danny didn’t really want to hear my musings on Target fashion and I know my mom will appreciate!
