Altuzarra for Target

Another designer collaboration is upon us Altuzarra for Target hit select stores and online on September 14!

Joseph Altuzarra launched his line in 2008. Altuzarra uses his cultural influences from his heritage to inspire his line to make women feel confident, sexy and strong. His mother is Chinese-American and his father is French.

Altuzarra did an internship with Marc Jacobs, freelance work with Proenza Schouler, then moved on to assist Riccardo Tisci from Givenchy, it was just a matter of time until he launched his own line.

Vogue has praised his line and he has won awards from Forbes and now we (who are on a limited budget) can own a little piece of his talent.

Here are some of my favorite pieces that I can't wait to own! I love the fabrics, the snake print, and the ladylike clean lines of everything.

This dress is a super cure peasant with embroidery detailing. Retailing for $54.99 is a wardrobe must have.

I am obsessed with this woven and knit sweatshirt for only $29.99. Such an easy trend, I love how they paired it with a pencil skirt. Such a versatile piece you can wear with jeans, skirts, or pants.

I think that this snake print high slit pencil skirt is a great fall transition piece for $34.99. You can never really go wrong with animal prints and the sexy slit with a high stiletto will make you feel so confident.

September 5 Outfit of the Day

One of the trends I have embraced a lot from summer and going into Fall is the soft pants. It's an easy quick outfit. The pants are usually printed so you just have to put a solid top with it and if your tall enough you can do flats if not heels look just as good. These pants I got from Stein Mart. They had an extra 50% off their clearance during Labor Day so I scored these for $7! I actually got 2 different pairs. The black top which is a henley style I got from Marshalls. This day I chose to wear flat sandals and a brown leather cuff from Gap. And that's my puppy Aubree photobombing me!

September 3 Outfit of the Day

I can't even believe it is September already. This year has flown by! This week my buyer was in New York City for market so it was pretty quiet at the office. My outfit today was kinda spur of the moment and put together really fast since I usually set out my outfits the night before but forgot. The striped skirt is from Old Navy as well as the tank, and the white blazer is from the Queen Latifah line at HSN. And the heels are by Steve Madden. These have been a favorite pair of heels for a while now. I need to go get them fixed! 

August 29 Outfit of the Day

For the Friday before Labor Day I had the day off. I had lunch with a friend and then went to see my mom at the school she works at. Then of course I did some shopping. I went very casual, which I usually do on the weekends. My textured shorts are from Old Navy and my crochet back top is from Bealls. Sandals are from Forever 21 and jewelry is from Bealls, Lisa Hoffman, and Forever 21.

August 13 Outfit of the Day

I really love just being comfortable all day while at work. I sit for most of the day and being able to move around is a must. These textured black leggings are from Rock-and-Republic and the bright re-range tank is super old from Forever 21. I put black sandals with it from Gap and added a red-orange necklace from Bealls and a few bead bracelets. This I think is going to be my new go to weekend going-out look.

August 12 Outfit of the Day

In an effort not to be so machy-matchy all the time since I tend to do so, and usually stick to colors and prints I like and aren't very "loud". Well I bought this dress from the HSN store, it's a Tiana B. and I loved the print. I am obsessed with paisley print right now. It was a little bit too big on me (but for $5 I would make it work), so I belted it and added my favorite Express white wedges and off to work I go. I literally got so many compliments on this dress. I was happy that people embraced it and didn't think I looked to "weird".

The Fray Concert OOTD

One of my friend's was so gracious enough to share her extra ticket to The Fray with me since her BF was working the show. So my top is from Colleen Lopez from HSN. It could be worn off or on the shoulder and its this deep, rich plum color. I absolutely love it. And yes I am bringing the "off-the-shoulder" look back. My jeans are skinnies from A.N.A. JCP. My brown strappy wedges are from Express. I do have to say these are some of the most comfortable wedges I own. They are a must buy every year for me now. For accessories I went a little wild...of course my MK rose gold watch made an appearance, the giant rose gold link bracelet is from Cotton On, and my earrings were from one of my old bosses. I usually keep accessories simple.
