What! Finally me and you can afford Missoni? Well at least their target collection. Target, for several years now, has been partnering up with Designers to create exclusive designer lines for limited time. This gives the average fashionista ,like you and I, the opportunity to own designer pieces with out the designer price tag. Their next collaboration is with the Italian luxury brand MISSONI. Honestly, this came as a surprise to me when I saw the ads in the September issue of Vogue. The line is set to hit stores and online September 13-October 22 or until supplies last (which I doubt will be long).

Missoni is a primarily knit line known for its fun and quirky colorful patterns & prints. The target line represents true Missoni. To keep cost down, I'm sure quality of fabric & special details in design & in manufacturing had to be compromised, but the line looks almost identical to pieces you can find in their designer line. If you've never gotten your hands on a designer target piece, Missoni's 400 piece collection is one not to miss out on.The line not only includes clothes for women, men & kids...but beautiful accessories, shoes, home decor, kitchenware, luggage, stationary and more! I'm super excited and already have my eye on a few pieces!

Missoni Founders: Ottavio & Rosita Missoni 

On my wish list: Can see this in my future apartment

This is Target's biggest collaboration thus far with prices ranging from $2.99-$599.99, although most will retail for less then $40. I'm excited to see some of these pieces in person & I already have my eye on a few pieces. One being the coffee/tea cup set with matching plates and rack for maybe a future apartment. 

So what do you think about this collaboration? Will you be shopping for Missoni at Target? Let me know in a comment below.....Till next time

VMA 2011: Highlights & Lowlights

Not the biggest fan of MTV, since they don't really represent music any more...but reality shows and honestly a bunch of crap. But I do try to catch the awards to see performances and what artists take home some awards. This post isn't focused on the fashion, but just some of the moments I thought were the BEST & WORST of the night!

Bruno Mars tribute to Amy Whinehouse
Adele performs and touches my soul
Beyonce shows off baby bump.....& Jay Z and Kanye's reaction
During Commercial, the Kia hamsters dance to "Party Rock"
Love when they come together & hoping I make it to their concert :/
Idk about you, but I loved Miley's dress!
Uggg, love this song! Hasn't gotten old yet! "Give me Everything"
Always enjoy watching Chris Brown dance his ass off!

I'm a Wayne fan, But hated his outfit, his performance, & his presence! Disappointed! Step it up!
Jessie J is talented, but this outfit plus a bedazzled cast is horrible
Bieber had awful accessories: Huge reading glasses and a snake???
Keayshawn, two thumbs down!
Gaga makes one ugly man
The people we've made famous with reality t.v, while people with real talent and no record deals only dream of making it to an award show one day.....
What? Nicki wins best hip hop video for "Super Bass"? wamp wamp
ummmmmmm, what the hell Nicki!

I'm sure there were other good & bad moments but these were the ones that stood out the most and made it on a post. So what were you're favorite and worst moments from the Mtv video music awards? Leave me a comment below. AND MTV: Step your shit up and represent real music, not b.s. like you've been doing the last couple years! (Just how I feel)

EXCLUSIVE! What other designers envisioned Kim wearing on her wedding day!

Close friend to The Kardashians and Fashion designer (known for her wedding gowns) Vera Wang, designed not 1 but 3 gowns for Kim's big day! Haven't found any leaked photos of the gowns yet. I think E! is suppose to be the first to show it when they air the big 2 part special of the wedding. Are you thinking the same thing I am? This is a lil much, but hey, we've made The Kardashians so big in pop culture. And yes I am guilty of watching the show.....our lil secret! But any way...back to the fashion. 

As soon as photos of the gowns & what guests wore to the wedding are released, I will have them up!
In the mean time, check out these exclusive fashion sketches I found on from other designers who wished they could style Kim and what they envisioned her wearing on her big day! Designer names captioned under sketches!


Anne Barge
Claire Pettibone
Ines Di Santo
Jennifer Salzman
Kevan Hall
Pnina Tornai
Reem Acra
Romona Keveza
Todashi Shoji
Zuhair Murad

Styling someone like Kim Kardashian for her wedding would be a dream for any designer because of the exposure you know it would receive. Everyone is going to talk about her gown & of course who made it!

My Favorite of these 11 sketches are designers Ines Di Santo, Todashi Shoji, Theia, and Zuhair Murad.
Which designs do you like and could of seen Kim in?....Let me know in a comment below!
