right on target.

Man, oh man. In my ‘funemployment’ I’ve had to learn to kind of cut back on the amount of shopping I usually do. It’s sad, but I never was a truly extravagant, designer-everything kind of shopper. If anything, the challenges arose when I got my current part time job at kate spade ny, where you have to dress and kind of ‘live’ their brand. It’s a fun lifestyle that I identify with quite a bit (you should SEE the training material, it’s the first time i’ve ever wanted to take work home with me!), but at the same time coming from a job where I mostly wore jeans and casual tops, I find myself dressing up for most of the week nowadays, tights, dresses, and cardigans.

Anyway, having to work with my current wardrobe, I befriended the j.crew outlet quite a bit in the beginning, and reworked a lot of my pieces, adding new shoes and a cute cardi I got with my discount. Etc, etc. The sales rack at anthropologie was also quite good to me, as well as H&m.

Another source, that many fashionistas on a budget already know of is…Target. However, in the past in particular collaborations, I found myself a bit disappointed (liberty for target, I’m looking at you! your weirdo floor skimming poly dresses made me want to cry, zac posen- you can’t hide either!). Target, though, in the most recent months have been spot on with some great piece

dolce vita for target

( i love, love, love my brown dolce vita flats with the chain detail- i love busting them out every fall!)

tucker for target

(so cute, I wear them with these tights, my beat up knee high boots and feel very austin city limits in it)

mulberry for target

(ok, I don’t own this and if I didn’t work at ks, I would get this cute-ass little black satchel. it’s cuter in person, I swear)

 

anyway, tons of cute new things. Plus I can buy a 20 pack of giant garbage bags to pack all my beautiful clothes in. And pretty much everything else under the sun!

rings and things.

Some excited news since my last entry! One of my best friends got engaged to her long time boyfriend (they’ve been dating since we were seniors/juniors in college!). They are adorable as heck, as evident of their Tumblr. They are in the process of putting together their own homemade goods/DIY company, named after Margot Tennanbaums’ play The Levinsons in the Trees. They kind of also resemble Margot and Richie Tennanbaum, in case you were wondering.

I’m so very excited because it’s the first really close friend of mine to take the plunge! This means fun wedding planning! And since they are so in tune with music, art, style, design, and all that fun stuff, it will be a very fun, unique, and personalized wedding. Yay!

As a bridesmaid, she is not requiring us to have matching dresses, so I’m thinking of splurging on something beautiful that I can wear time and time again. Leifsdottier is one of the sister brands of my favorite place to shop- Anthropologie. They have some beautiful dresses on their website; all I think would be perfect for the occasion.

1. Paper Lantern Dress, $288.00
2. Leaf Canopy Dress, $158.00
3. Gilded Garden Dress, $328.00

Sooo pretty! The Paper Lantern one is my favorite. Too bad her wedding is not for another year or so!
