Shopaholic Personal Style: VB x Target 

     I have seen this skirt on a lot of bloggers and it is not one of the easiest pieces to style. The bold pattern and silhouette is very over powering and you should try your best to keep everything else simple to avoid looking like a circus clown. I am here to show you how I would style this skirt to suit my own personal style. 


When you are surrounded by a super bold shape, color or pattern it’s best not to fight against it. Depending on your body shape you want to pick a color already present in your pattern and use it to complete the look. I have wide shoulders and a large bust so I chose the black to style my top to slim down my top half. 


This skirt is refreshing! It is fun and flirty and memorable. The VB skirt is going to be something you grab for a special event or brunch. You are definitely going to command the attention of the room with this outfit. I honestly feel that heels are definitely the way to go but you can pair with a pointed flat as well. 


     For the street style version of this look I paired it with a graphic tee in a similar color palette and finished it off with a statement pin and simple black heels. There are several ways to style this piece but this variation is definitely the most “me.”


 I would wear this to a business meeting or personal style consultation with a client. This is a stylists business attire (lol). I enjoyed styling this piece and I hope you guys liked my version of this look. 


     I have included a few other images of some close up views of the details of this look. I would love to know which picture was your favorite. 


Shopaholic Personal Style: VB x Target Style Series


As promised I am back with a few looks that I have put together from the Victoria Beckham and Target collaboration. I have styled all three of the pieces that I purchased from target a few weeks ago and I am going to share them all with you over the next few days.


One of the things that I love most about collaborations is that they bring expensive runway styles to the everyday shopper. I love mixing high end and affordable style. When a designer also takes this concept and runs with it, it is almost always a hit. 


I loved the orange romper the most and ended up wearing this on Easter Sunday. The weather was perfect and was a much needed break from the cold that seems to not want to leave New York City. I paired the look with simple accessories and my Fe Noel Floral dress worn as a duster. 


This look was a hit on the streets of Brooklyn and I received nothing but compliments. The bright hues of blue and orange paired perfectly. I don’t doubt that I will be wearing this look again somewhere very soon. I didn’t want to add any more color to the already bold look so I added my flesh-toned Steve Madden heels to finish it off. 


I really enjoyed this look and I hope it inspired you to style your VBxTarget merchandise as well. Even if you were not able to get anything from the collection you can still apply the underlying principle of the outfit. Pair a solid color romper, jumpsuit or dress with a floral print overcoat or duster in a similar color family. If the colors are bold keep the rest of your accessories and makeup neutral.


I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Like always if you want to try any of the looks please tag me on your social media @thee_shopaholic. I would love to see! If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments section. Until next time happy shopping! 

Victoria Beckham is Right on Target

 

     I hope you guys are all enjoying your Palm Sunday! Victoria Beckham launched her collection with Target this morning and I am definitely here for it! Clean lines and bold colors, prints and textures pretty much sums up the five separate collections she issued to the target brand today. I successfully made a few purchases but I also left a few great pieces as well. 

Women’s Orange Scallop Tie Waist Romper – Victoria Beckham for Target
     I love a good play suit (romper) that can be worn over and over again! This bright orange item is going to be one of my summer closet staples. The structure is perfect for every fashion occasion. The scalloped detailing is my favorite part! This circus scallop collection is giving me Solange vibes and I am definitely here for it! 


     This midi skirt is construction perfection! This is a statement piece and something that you will have in your closet for a lifetime! I personally think that this is the most innovative piece of all in her collection. I definitely had to add this to my shopping cart! 

Women’s Black and White Stripe Scallop Midi Skirt – Victoria Beckham for Target
     You can pair this look with blazers or play the look down with a simple graphic tee. The collection is super playful and definitely affordable. I love that target is giving us fashion while keeping in mind the budget of its “target” consumer (no pun intended). 

Women’s Fuchsia Twill Ruffle Hem Dress – Victoria Beckham for Target
     The last item I picked up was this bold pink swing dress with ruffle detail at the base. The spring and summer season is all about bold colors and I love the white accent at the bottom of the dress. YouCam dress it up with a heel or dress it down with a pair of white sneakers. This collection is very girly and classic just like the style we love to see from Mrs. Beckham. 


     I would love to know if you picked up any of the styles from target today. What did you hate? What did you love? What did you miss out on? The looks are selling out fast so if you haven’t already be sure to head over to the site. Until next time happy shopping! 

Target Collaboration: Adam Lippes 

   
      Just a few days ago a friend of mine and I were wondering what this seasons Target collaboration was going to be. I want to finish out my Fashion week series; however, I would not be a good friend if I didn’t pop in to share some time sensitive information with my Shopaholics. 

  
Adam Lippes is an American fashion designer who became prominent at Oscar de la Renta and has had his own company since 2004. If you read my previous post on my latest fashion finds you already know this fall is all about plaid, especially buffalo plaid. This is the focus of the design collab Lippes has for target this year. 

  
     I love sleek plaid. It is classic in design and bold at the same time. I am definitely going to be taking a few pieces home from the collection set to release this weekend. Lippes offers great pieces for the office or the minimalist shopaholic. 

  
My favorite piece from the collection is this sleek shirt dress! I love pieces that can be styled a number of ways and that is no secret. This is a dress I am sure will remain in my collection for years to come. If targets fashion collaborations in the past speak to the quality of items I know this is a wellade collection of sustainable materials. 

  
I have been absolutely obsessed with the duster, gilet, or longline vest trend. This patterned piece has my name all over it! Set your calendars for September 27th! 

      

      The collection like the ones in the past will feature both men’s and women’s fashion. I feel this is a completely wearable collection no matter what trends you do or do not follow. 

  
     He also is offering accessories as well as home goods so if fashion isn’t your forte you might enjoy blankets or cutlery. 

  
     I am excited about this collaboration! I am not sure if I will be participating from the comfort of my home or via IRL. But I will be sure to keep you guys posted on where I will be on Sunday! I will share some additional photos below! Happy Shopping! 

   
    
    
    
 

Shopaholic Cart Confessions: Target Style

The summer is almost over. Most of my shopaholics are preparing for fall fashion and back to school. I found some great buys at Target, sure to keep you on trend for the autumn season. Target has a great selection of shoes right now and I had to pick up my personal favorites and add them to my cart. 

 
Women’s Doris Footbed Sandal – $12.48 to $24.99

The first pair I picked up were on sale! These metallic flats are super chic and less than ten bucks. They are perfect for those weekend getaways once it starts to get cool and you decide to retreat to a warmer climate. I always wear sandals on the plane. Pair them with sweats and a warm duster coat and you are ready for the mile high fashion club. 

  
The next pair of flats are definitely needed if you work in an office setting or you just really love a good loafer. Every shopaholic should have a pair of black flats. The pointed silhouette is definitely where shoe fashion is headed this year and Target hit the nail on the head.

 
Women’s Holly Loafers – $24.99 

You should never compromise your style for the office. I love to wear jumpsuits and sheath dresses all year round. They are no fuss pieces that do not require much styling. A navy jumpsuit paired with a simple timepiece and office bag would definitely compliment these shoes. If your environment is a bit more conservative you can throw on a blazer or cardigan once you get to your desk. 

  
This would not be a proper shoe haul with out a good heel. Fall definitely calls for great warm neutrals that compliment your skintone. I went for a nude d’orsay pump. I love the understated sex appeal of side-foot-cleavage. If you guessed that Target style did it again you are correct! 

 

Women’s Lainee D’Orsay Pumps – $29.99

The possibilities on styling this shoe are absolutely endless; however, I picked it up specifically for a casual date. These pumps are great paired with a neutral blouse and your favorite jeans. You can add your printed or textured clutch and your date will have no complaints. This outfit can be worn to dinner or brunch and the casual fit is balanced with a simple heel.  
  
A fall shoe closet is not complete without a classic bootie. I never gravitate towards pointed shoes but this what’s my third pointy shoe find. I love the grips on the bottom because it gives them a casual, everyday feel. I don’t like too much detail on my boots. Simple cuts and styles make them a bit more flexible to wear and also allow them to carry over into different seasons and years to come. 

 
Women’s Jan Zipper Block Heeled Booties – $37.99

I love to shop in boots during the fall. I would definitely pair these with black leather trousers and a simple v neck t shirt. Just add a trench coat and fedora to compete the look. This is perfect for a girls day out, a shopping trip and even another date night option.  
  
Please be sure to let me know which outfit you are excited to try and which of the Target shoes you plan to purchase! Happy Shopping… From Target Style! Yours Truly Shopaholic Cart Confession.
