McQ Alexander McQueen for Target

There were rumors a few months ago about Target talking to Alexander McQueen about a collection. I was hoping the rumors were true, but didn't hear much after that. It has been confirmed that McQueen will be creating a collection for Target's Designer Collaborations, which is separate from Target's Go International, and will be based off of his secondary line, McQ. Unfortunately, it won't be available until March. I can't wait!

Katie is back... kinda

Not like it matters, lol, but I've been gone for a while now. I have school and a new job... Needless to say, my time is divided between school, work, sleep, and a very small amount of personal time. I hope to be able to post new info soon, mainly focusing on product reviews since my work is a professional product store. Stay tuned, I'll have some good stuff up, but until then, let me know if you have any reviews you would like to see done.

JF&A Show

Yesterday, I went to the Jewelry, Fashion & Accessories show. We had never been before and just wanted to see what they had to offer. There really wasn't much that appealed to me. Most of the jewelry was too costume for my taste. There were a few rings that I would've bought had they been bracelets instead. There was quite a bit of fur coats, including this beauty:
Rami Kashou from Project Runway Season 4 was at the show. He had a booth where he was signing autographs and showing off some of his collection. I fell in love with two of his dresses.

Chilly Day

Cardigan: American Apparel; Dress: Norma Kamali; V-Neck: American Apparel;
Necklace: Marc by Marc Jacobs; Leggings: American Apparel; Boots: Uggs

Today, Katie and I did one of our favorite things: going to the Marc by Marc Jacobs store. The weather was pretty chilly and left me no choice, but to wear my Uggs. It's about time I get a new pair, seeing as I've had them for three years now and worn them out pretty well.

There were a few MbMJ clothing items I wanted to take home with me (as always), but I didn't buy any of them because I'm planning on getting some Frye Engineer boots within the next few weeks. Katie also happened to point out a pair of pants that I loved. Thanks a lot, Katie! I did purchase two special items, the heart mirror compact and the monocle necklace.

I also ended up falling in love with one of the few Marc Jacobs pieces they had in store: a fur hat. I don't know why, but I am always in love with hats like this. I plan on taking a picture of me wearing it next time we go there. At least I found a stock photo to drool over.

Shauna's Favorite Spring 2009 RTW Shows: Part 1

This is long overdue. I didn't get a chance to look at any of the shows until this past week. I'm still not done looking at every show that I wanted to. It's late, so there won't be any details about why I loved each show, but it was definitely hard to narrow it down to the twelve shows I am posting.

Alexander McQueen
