Jason Wu Sunday

Hello Everyone! Well on Sunday the Jason Wu collection was finally available online and in stores. Even though I was up late the previous night I made the extra effort to wake up early to get my hands on the pieces I wanted. I did my shopping at a Target in San Antonio near North Star Mall rather than doing my shopping online. I got there at 9 which I think I was an hour late from opening but my sizes were still available. Overall the collection was great. Although I did notice some little things. The fabric was obviously very light weight and sheer when it should not be. The blush dress with black collar and sleeve trim with stripes was the dress the only dress I bought in size XS but I also had to by a sip because you could see through it. That dress also was extra long compared to how it was shown on the model and dress form in the Target television commercial. I know I am short but I do not think it was just me that made the dress seem so long. I still loved though obviously because I still bought it! All the sizes were slightly bigger than what it seemed it should have been. I bought the heather grey tee with lace print in an XS and it still fit big and that is because I am not a twig. The length of the torso was adequate size for an average woman. I bought the black pleated skirt which I am debating wether to sell, return or keep because the length of it seems to long for my height. I am 5’1″ and too long of skirts can make me look even shorter but I am still not sure. It is a size 6 if anyone may be interested. The last piece I bought was the collared cap sleeve pleated blouse in red in a size Medium. I love the addition of red into my wardrobe everyone needs to have a hint of red, giving you a break form the loads of black you may have in your closet like I do. That could be paired with the pleated skirt and heels, a pair of nice black shorts and tights with flats, leather skirt with biker boots, or skinny jeans and ballet flats. Well, at least that is how I would wear it. Overall the quality of the clothing was great and well priced.

Well until next time!

So ready for February 5th, Jason Wu for Target!

Hello Everyone! Well the day is almost here for all my fellow PrimaFashionistas anxiously awaiting the launch of Jason Wu at all targets and target.com this Sunday, February 5th! I am so excited, you have no idea. Being a college student, funds are slim but I have held back on my retail shopping just so I can see what I end up loving! I would totally buy online BUT I would spend a lot less knowing exactly how the garments actually look, feel and fit in person. Quality is something very important to me and should be to anyone. Yes, I know you are saying “Well it is Target, what do you expect?” But Missoni for target had to have been one of my favorite and only collections to have met my expectations compared to other designers that have launched a collection with them in the passed. I have total confidence for this Jason Wu collection though. These are some of the looks posted on the Targetstyle Facebook page that have intrigued me. He said the inspiration was Parisian women during a certain era. Love. It seems to me very Blair Waldorf which is another reason why I think I love this collection so much. Well I will definitely know how that goes and what I actually think about the garments on Sunday!

Until next time!

MUSIC: Gotye

So one of my favorite type of genres of music is alternative so I have been steaming a radio station from Austin, Texas called 101X Independent. Local. Alternative. (www.101x.com) The music the station play are all my favorites plus many more new artists. I heard this song called ‘Somebody that I used to know’ by an Australian called Gotye. There is something about the sound of this song that I love. He was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night which I didn’t actually watch because I was in bed but I heard my roommates watching it. The sound of this guys voice at times sounds like Sting or someone like that I can not pin point who exactly. Anyways, I love it. Take a listen and I’ve posted the Official Video and last nights live performance.

Until next time!
