Jason Wu for Target
Target has done it again. After the great Missoni debacle from last fall, I think a lot of people were wary of Target's latest designer line. Even though I was one of the lucky ones who managed to buy my Missoni items without any problems, I have to admit after a while I was just over it. Isn't it funny how you can obsess over something, but after a while it stops being so important and you have no idea why you were so obsessed in the first place? Happened to me.
So when Target announced its next partnership, I quickly put it out of my mind and didn't give it another thought. That is until yesterday when they launched the look book for Jason Wu for Target. And I do so love Jason Wu. You may remember the post I did from his 2012 Spring Collection. I like the fact that this particular collection is nothing like Missoni's. It's small, simple, and classic with a dash of preppy sophistication.
I love that it's girly and elegant, just the way I like to dress. If I could live in dresses and skirts I totally would. Those were my dressing staples back home, unfortunately now in winter I mostly wear pants which is very unlike me. Can't wait for warmer weather so I can break out my dresses again!
This navy dress is my favorite piece of all and the one thing I will try to get when the line launches. Isn't it gorgeous?
I'm not really crazy about the way they styled the models with the hair and the lacy socks, but I think the clothes speak for themselves.
Love this red shirt with the flowery pleated skirt!
If I don't manage to get the navy dress, then this is my second choice. It's a top and the pleated skirt from the last look, but together it seems like a dress right?
The collection will also include some accessories like bags and scarves. Pretty cute.
For a look at the full collection, visit the Target Style page on Facebook. It launches February 5th. I'll let you know if I manage to get anything!
