The much anticipated Rodarte for Target collection officially hits the stores and online today! I tried to stay awake and be one of the eager beavers to get first dibs, but my eyes would have none of that. I however did wake up early enough about 8am or so and was able to purchase the items that I want.
I mainly only wanted the black bow lace slip with tulle dress but since I am a scrooge and did not want to pay for shipping, I ordered the black lace cardigan as well. I ordered both in a size Small and am hoping that the dress would fit and be more flattering on me than its nude counterpart.

As for the lace cardigan, I don’t think I will be keeping it but we shall see. Estimated delivery date is December 24, which means I get to see it before I leave for motherland! Wheee! Heh.
Look who I spotted wearing the same outfit as Miss Piggy in my previous post? Well, none other than Lady GaGa herself! She was decked in the similar outfit that Marc designed for Miss Piggy at his S/S 2010 runway show.

“If last season was a trip back in time to the eighties,” Marc Jacobs continued, “this was a trip to the theater, the ballet, the opera.”
Check out the backstage beauty makeover as defined by François Nars on the look for the runway show:
“Life is a cabaret, all the world’s a stage — and everything is beautiful at the ballet!” said Marc Jacobs, backstage.

I love the cut, the fabric, the texture, the colors of this collection! Yes, granted some of the looks/pieces that he sent down the runway were rather ‘out there’ but that’s Marc Jacobs for you. He always likes to have some ‘shock’ factor in his shows. I think the chiffon, the ruffles, the frills, the sportswear jackets are perfection. Oh, the thing that I dig the most? No heels! Yes, the geisha influence for clogs were executed in flats and kitten heels. I know plenty of ladies/fashionistas are lamenting over this, but I think its pure ingenuity. To me, Marc has once again proved that he’s ahead of the pack.
I received this email in my inbox this morning for H&M.
“Shop our entire collection and for every 2 items purchased, save 50% on the equal or lesser priced item. Coupon valid from Sept 14 to Sept 20. One coupon per customer, surrendered at time of purchase.”
Boy, am I happy or what? I had mentioned previously in this post that I was guilt-ridden from shopping but this coupon definitely helped me to feel a little less guilt ridden! I rebought the same items from the store and scored 5o% off on my Chanel-esque jacket!

Woohoo! That’s definitely a score considering I was having a hard time trying to justify the price so this came in handy and just in time! I will promptly be returning my previous purchase back to the store with a big grin on my face. Heh.
For those of you who would like to get your hands on the coupon, kindly leave me your email in the comments section and I would be more than happy to forward the coupon along. Kindly take note that the coupon is however, only valid in U.S. stores. Sorry for you folks in the EU. Boo!
On another note, here’s a little sneak peek of my Chanel indulgence or rather splurge…

Also, I have finally decided to let go one of my bags from my small little collection. I previously bought this Marc by Marc Jacobs Owl Lady bag in Fire from last year’s summer sales.
It was the last one in the entire system, so I bought it in a heartbeat albeit some kinks to it. I definitely had my sales goggles on and of course the beautiful shade of red was perfection! Sadly, the beautiful bag has been sitting in the closet in its dustbag with tags attached never getting to go out on a spin or see any daylight. I have finally come to my senses to let it go to a better home, one where the lovely owner would get more use of it than I would.
The retail price for the bag was $398 but I bought it for $277.90 as written on the tag. I will most likely post more pics or have it listed on Bonanzle soon. For first dips, kindly leave an offer in the comments section!
The much anticipated Anna Sui for Target collection which is inspired by the Gossip Girl TV show is finally in stores and online. I blogged about it previously here and here.
Among some of the items that caught my eyes are…
Can you tell I am a little obsessed with ruffles? Heh. I however did not purchase anything and do not intend to as I am still reeling in from my splurge on Chanel. Did you get anything from the collection? If yes, please share what you picked up!
