The weather has slowly been getting warmer and flowers are blooming, which means it’s almost Spring! I couldn’t resist wearing this tulip print dress that always reminds me of Spring, layered underneath a cashmere turtleneck. I wore this outfit a few weekends ago but the past few days I’ve only been wearing my trench coat and sans scarf. Spring weather is upon us!

Dress worn as skirt: Anna Sui for Anthropologie (similar)
It’s been a while since I posted an outfit, so here’s one I wore to work earlier this week and linking up with Mix & Match Fashion’s What I Wore to Work.
I spotted Peony Lim in a pretty Anna Sui dress that she wore for fashion week two years ago while perusing her archive when I discovered her blog. I couldn’t forget the gorgeous print on the dress and recently I decided to try and hunt down the dress. Well, as luck would have it, I found a similar dress that Anna Sui created for Anthropologie and someone was clearing their closet on eBay. Even though it was a size or two bigger, I nabbed the dress as I can always have it altered when I go back to KL.
So, here’s the outfit layered under a sleeveless shirt and blouse in an attempt to conceal that the dress is a tad big on me. 😉
I read back in early May that Anna Sui will be teaming up with Target to bring us a collection of outfits styled after the female characters in Gossip Girl. I chose not to blog about it back then as I wanted to wait out and see what the outfits would look like.
Well, the look book got leaked so the outfits are now available for preview. Among some of the outfits:
A total of 19 looks will be debuted and the collection will be available in 250 selected Target stores come September 13 to October 17. To view the complete collection in a slideshow, click here.
Upon seeing the entire collection, I have to say I like 3 out of the 5 outfits for Blair. I only like one of the dresses for Jenny, which is featured above, the short sleeveless black dress. As for Vanessa, I only like the sleeveless ruffle top because I am a sucker for ruffles! I have to say that I am pretty disappointed with the outfits for Serena. I guess I expected more of Serena’s dresses to be in the collection but there’s only one and that is the one and only piece I like.
I hope these will be in my local Target store so that I can check them out in person and see if its worth spending money on the quality of these items.
