Jason Wu for Target

As an expat living in Spain, one of the things I miss most about the USA is superstore Target.  Target is a magical land of joy that has pretty much everything you could ever want but is way classier than Walmart. 

Target, like H & M, also has famous fashion designers that do specific lines for the store, for example, Issac Mizrahi and Missoni.  Now, Jason Wu has created a line for Target that will be available for a very short amount of time: Feb. 5 to March 6.  The prices range  from $19.99 to $59.99 for clothes and $19.99 to $49.99 for accessories.  

The lookbook is out and so far the line has gotton excellent reviews in the fashion industry, but who knows what will happen when the items hit stores?  How ´fashion´is your Target customer?  I for one like the clothes, they are a bit cutesy- prep for my particular style but I think they have good selling value and I predict the line will do well.    See some sneak peeks below

This is one of my favorites, I think the sillhouette  would make anyone look long and lean.

This white one is another  one of my favorites, it´s not really my style but I could see a couple of my friends looking fabulous in it

I like the mesh at the top of this, I think it adds a little urban edge to a rather sweet looking collection.

This bag is a lot of fun, the shape is right on trend and I love the two colors and textures mixed.

Wu had a few scarves in the collection and this was my favorite (shocking, I´m drawn to a gray and black color scheme)

Personally, I am a fan of Jason Wu, not only because I enjoy his runway designs and I think this is a nice collection for Target, but also because he´s kinda cute and designs Barbie doll dresses, more specifically for the Rupaul Barbie! Tranny Barbie Doll dress designs? Sigh, in love with Jason Wu!

What to Wear Wine Tasting Part Deux

As you all may remember from my original ´What To Wear Wine Tasting´ post last year, I suggested wearing low heels or flats, dressing warmly and of course wearing dark colors.

This year I have a few small additions to make after my second year wine tasting in Logroño, Spain.   The weather this year was lovely, sunshiney and brisk but fairly warm.  I probably did not need a heavy winter coat, however once you are down in the wine cellars it does get a bit chilly, so the best solution is:

Wear a heavy scarf!

This will keep your neck warm in the chilly wine cellars and can double as a cape or ´blanket´to be draped around your shoulders.  However, if you are outside and you begin to get warm, you can simply take it off, and it´s a lot easier to carry around than a heavy winter coat.  See examples of scarves below.

Holly, Desi, Heather and Norma, all with warm scarves.

Holly, Heather and I…as you can see we are sporting a no jacket look with scarves

I could take over the world in my yellow-orange scarf 🙂
