I hope everyone's week was productive, and I'm quite happy you decided to join me on this weeks journey. I have a lot of exciting information to share with you today, from this week's feature Prabal Gurung x Target, to my designer "find" of the week, an amazing celebrity shoe designer by the of Hendrick Brun.
Prabal Gurung x Target :
From Maison Martin Margiela x H&M to Narsico Rodriguez x Kohls, high end designers collaborating with lower price point stores is a trend I'm sure all of my fashionistas can appreciate. With collections usually being priced at hundreds and even thousands of dollars, I must say it is a breath of fresh air to hear that your favorite designer can be obtained with as low as $29.99. Sounds so beautiful that I must say it again..$29.99?? So you're telling me that I don't have to chose between paying my rent and keeping my closet up to date with the latest trends? I'm all for it!!
I can honestly say I love the new addition to the class of designers who are making this happen for us: Prabal Gurung. Prabal Gurung launched his first runway collection during fashion week 2009, and has been making a huge impact on the industry since then. Between interning with designers such as Donna Karan and, learning rules of the trade from Parsons, you can say that Gurung has been taught well; and I believe that shows in this exciting spring ready collection. The collection debuts in stores on February 10th, just in time for Valentines day, which makes sense because the line is dedicated to the various dating styles of a woman.
"The collection is inspired by a girls journey through the different stages of love and the clothes she wears during each milestone..from the first date to meeting the parents to the engagement." Via Fabsugar.com
Date night it does represent, the line can be described as playful, colorful, bold, and sooo spring! From the florals and bright colors to the fun prints, pieces from this line are a must have for your spring wardrobe. Prices range anywhere from $13.00-$200.00. Here are some of my favorites from the lookbook via Target.com

Fashion Find of the week: Shoe Designer Hendrick Brun
As I've told you before, i'm a sucker for a good deal, I also am a sucker for a more "personal designer". I hate having the same look as other people or having someone instantly know where I got any piece of my outfit from. Now, I realize sometimes this is unavoidable, however, I try hard anyway. This obsession leads me to websites such as etsy, big cartel and even social networks such as Instagram; basically anywhere that upcoming designers display their work. I love new talent, and I love to support it even more. Which brings me to introduce you guys to Hendrick Brun, luxury shoes for a fair price point, shoes vary in pricing from $100.00-$170.00. The East Coast based shoe line can be described as edgy meets sophisticated , you will find everything from traditional various colored pumps, to heels with studs ,and my personal favorite, a suede number with a wooden sole and heel. Oh, and I did I mention divas such as Snooki, Taraji P. Henson, and Lola Monroe have been spotted rocking the line?
Wither you're a daring diva, or a simple gal, this shoe line is one to pay attention to; I for one can't wait to see more from this design diva! Here are my faves:

"The thing I always loved about makeup, is that, there are no rules in makeup. You do whatever it is to make yourself feel comfortable and feel beautiful. And although a lot of people do feel like its a mask, I have to disagree.. I think it's a way for me to express myself, and anything that allows me to express myself.. I DO IT..Makeup and beauty is how I express myself." VIA ViralStatus.com
