Fauxionable Outfit – London Winter Rain

I have previously posted a Winter rain outfit, but here’s my London version as the trench coat is more waterproof than a wool coat. Since it’s still rather chilly, I layered a leather jacket underneath the trench coat for added warmth. I may have less layers on my lower half but rest assured, I have warm long socks underneath those rain boots!

Fauxionable Outfit – What I Wore to Work: Black on Black

It has been a tragic week with the bombings at the Boston Marathon and today, at the Texas fertilizer plant. My thoughts and prayers goes out to all the victims, their loved ones, and those living in the surrounding areas.

I rarely wear a black outfit for I think it only serves to emphasize how skinny I am but on the rare occasion of not knowing what to wear, one can always fall back to wearing an all black outfit! I decided to play with textures for this black outfit to keep it a little less boring and chose to pair the outfit with oxfords to balance out the bow, ruffles and pleats.

Feature Friday: Prabal Gurung for Target

Yes, it’s yet another Target designer collaboration at more affordable price points for the masses like moi. By far, I love the spring floral print in this Prabal Gurung for Target collection. Following are some of my favorite looks…

Neiman Marcus & Target – Holiday 24 Review

**UPDATE: Everything from the collaboration is marked 50% off! Happy Shopping here!**

I made a quick run to Target during lunch on Thursday as my colleague wanted to pick up some clothes from there for an interview. I was finally able to check out the items in person as I had placed my order online as mentioned here.

The store that I went to in Rockville, MD had everything in stock (in all sizes!) and following are some pics of the items.

Alice & Olivia BikeAlice & Olivia Bike $499

Jason Wu & Rodarte Ornaments, Proenza Schouler iPad CaseJason Wu ($49.99) & Rodarte ($19.99) ornaments, Proenza Schouler iPad Cases ($39.99)

The ornaments looked pretty and seemed well made. I however have no need for them as I do not have a Xmas tree up.

Oscar de la RentaOscar de la Renta tote $59.99

I originally thought the tote was faux leather based upon the stock pics but it turns out to be canvas. It’s a steep price to pay for a canvas bag that doesn’t really stand out, in my opinion.

Marchessa Girl Dresses Target Neiman MarcusMarchesa dresses for Girls – Beaded ($99.99) and Floral ($79.99)

Lela Rose lace top and dressLela Rose lace top ($69.99) and printed dress ($99.99)

Of the two items that I ordered, the Lela Rose lace top looked disappointing to me as the lace was only on the front and the underlay of the top was in a much darker beige than pictured. The material for the underlay felt sub-par, a little cheap for the price point. I was put off that I didn’t bother to try on the top in the store.

Robert Rodriguez Target Neiman Marcus lace dress model wornRobert Rodriguez Lace Dress $99.99

The Robert Rodriguez lace dress looked promising but upon trying it on, there were few issues with it, one being that it was actually loose on me in size 2, the smallest size! 🙁 That aside, as I read from the reviews on Target’s site, the zipper does get stuck near the ribbon and it took a while for me to zip the dress. And last but not least, the area around the hip looks boxy (refer to my modeling pic). If not for those issues, I would gladly keep this dress when it arrives as it is well made with boning and a bra strap to secure the top. The lace is of good quality, and so is the lining. Unfortunately it will have to go back when I receive my package.

Well, all is not lost since I purchased the much raved about Tracy Reese dessert plates instead and was able to do that with a $10 gift card from a coupon that expires Dec 8. The plate is of good quality with substantial weight to it and it is rimmed in 18K gold.

Fauxionable Outfit – Tweedy Pleats

Yet another outfit transitioning into Fall, channeling an equestrian version of Coco Chanel (if ever there was one)! Yes, an inspiration from yesterday’s editorial post.
