Half the fun of fashion is adding in the “shock” factor to what you wear (ask Gaga). Imagine my surprise when my super chic friend responded that she had gotten her fantastic new top at…Target? I will admit I have counted down the hours for the superstore to launch their Philip Lim and Neiman Marcus lines, but after this revelation, I was determined to mimick an on-trend, high fashion look for less by creating outfits from Target’s own clothing brands.
Since my Sporty Spice days are over, I have been in search for the perfect track pant that I could dress up, for a more “Posh” look. Pairing these Xhilaration multi-colored floral track pants ($19.99) with this Mossimo black solid chiffon top with gold pock embellisments ($22.99) gives sophisticaton to the look. This outfit is perfect for a casual dinner or night out…and for under $40!
My second outfit (above) is a Mossimo combo that includes black jeggins with a faux leather quilted stripe ($22.99) and a tie-dye chiffon blouse ($24.99). This option is more edgy than the first but can be worn at a business-casual workplace or out for drinks with the gals. I love the pants not only for their where-to-wear versatility, but also because they will easily transfer between seasons. They will look just as cute paired with an oversized white tank.
I am now proud to admit that my recent purchases have made a Target shopper out of me, even between the designer line launches. And speaking of…the INCREDIBLE Peter Pilotto line is now in Target stores with mix-matched prints to amp up your personal Spring ’14 Collection!
Happy shopping friends!
