Victoria Beckham for Target Guesses

April is going to be a big month for fashion in my life! Not only is it Memphis Fashion Week but also the Victoria Beckham for Target collaboration will be released on April 9th. I'm so excited and can't decide if the other Memphis fashionistas will be excited too so I'm thinking it's going to be another early morning to get there when the store opens.

While the look book has not yet be released (based on prior collaboration timing it should be released sometime in the next two weeks) I feel like VB is consistent enough that we should have a decent idea of what to expect. VB has already stated that the collection will be similar to her Victoria  Victoria Beckham line early designs.
Here's a pre 2017 piece currently available on a fashion discount site:

Just based on this and the promo pic alone it looks like VVB sticks to classic pieces with touches of a feminine feel - this is my ultimate closet makeover aesthetic goal hence why I'm VERY excited for this collection.  Based on current trends and VVB styles I've seen here's what I'm hoping to get from this collaboration. These are just my personal speculations, I'll be sure to do a post with my favorite looks once the look book is released and let y'all know if I was right or not.

Flounce hem dress

I would LOVE to get something like this from the collection and the flounce hem appears in several VVB collections so I feel like this is part of her signature style and it would be a shame if it was not included in the collection.

Waist emphasizing cuts

A lot of VVB items are made to bring focus on the waist which again plays into the feminine classic style. I would expect a few curve hugging pieces and fitted tops. I love the fitted yet flowy look of this particular top and would be sure to grab one if a similar one was at target.

Bell Sleeves

Fun sleeves are so in right now and I see VB really embracing this with both of her collections so I hope she brought this 8into the target collection as well. This is a mass production line though so I wouldn't expect to see the extreme details like in designer lines but think a bell sleeve or small ruffle would be a way to bring this trend into the target line.
I also expect to see at least one piece that incorporates a bow, work friendly blouses, trousers with a slight flare, simple designed large bags, aviator sunglasses and simple strappy shoes. If my guesses are right I'm going to have a very hard time deciding what to get.

Spring Forward with a Wooden Watch

Hello Friends! Have you been making it to work on time this week or did your body have a hard time with the adjustment? Personally I am not a morning person so I have an easier time with fall daylight savings than I do spring. Here in Memphis the trees are starting to bloom and spring is in the air, which means its time to reflect the season in my wardrobe. I've swapped out my purse from black to blush, added a few new floral tops and got a new watch to help keep me on time as I adjust to the time change. For my watch, I selected the Frankie Purpleheart & Plum watch from Jord. Not only are oversized watches so in right now but I love the use of the Purpleheart wood and plum face to give a twist on a classic style watch. As y'all know love all shades of pink and I think the coloring of this watch goes with it so beautifully and the blush tones of my outfit really make the distinctness of the Purpleheart wood stand out.
I've been very intrigued by the wooden watch tre…

My blogging philosophy

It's my blogger / insta versary! Well sort of, but not really. I started this blog under a different name in 2009 and there were times when I posted a lot and times when I neglected it but mostly I used it as a creative outlet, a journal if you will that I didn't mind sharing with my Facebook friends. I blogged throughout my 20s about a lot of things 20-somethings experience - dating, job frustrations, the transition to adulthood but as I crossed to the other side of 30 and settled down into marriage those topics were no longer relevant- not that I am ashamed at all of the person I was or the journey that led me to where I am today but as my life shifted my priorities shifted as well and while I still very much wanted a creative outlet I decided to reinvent my blog life into more traditional blog topics and used my great closet makeover of 2017 as my kickoff project / inspiration  . . . so that actually happened a little over a year ago.
Meanwhile I had also been on instagra…

Pretty in Pink Easter Dress

Hello and Happy First Day of Spring!!! I'm so lucky to live in an area where in general the weather feels like what you would expect for each season - it's hot in summer, cold and winter and while some years we don't get the perfect day on the first day of spring it is starting to warn up and some flowers have begun to bloom. As much as I'm a planner I have a terrible time shopping for clothes in advance - when it's cold I want to wear sweaters and when it's warm I want cotton dresses gosh darn it so typically Easter creeps up on me and the week of I find myself scrambling to find something to wear. Yes of course I could just pull something I love from my closet but Easter represents new life and new beginnings and I always like to treat myself to a new dress.   So, when you've having all the Easter feels what's a girl to do except go take some pictures - and even better if you're lucky enough to live near a Jeff Koons Smooth Egg with Bow sculpture…

Spring Style at Wal-Mart (yes, Wal-Mart!)

Recently I've seen some of my favorite bloggers buzzing about some new clothing lines at Wal-Mart, so of course I needed more information. Turns out, Wal-Mart is re-vamping their clothing offerings across the store and with that are two new ladies lines - Time & Tru and Terra & Sky. Time & Tru offers straight sizes but does go to size 22 while Terra & Sky is the plus size offering starting at size 14 and going up to size 26. In theory if you're a size 14 to 22 you could shop both lines so since I fall into this category I decided to test it out. First off, it's important to note that Time & Tru also has accessories - jewelry, handbags, shoes and even swimsuits / cover ups. Look at these super cute earrings I scored - they were $4 y'all!!!!! Look at all the earrings! I had a very difficult time sticking to just one pair, I think next time I'll grab the black and white flowers and a pair of tassels. So now let me show you some things I tired on…

Sweater Weather

Although I could do without the snow and single digit temps I do love winter because a lot of my favorite clothes are winter clothes. There's something about a cozy sweater that makes me feel good so of course I'm loving the current trend of statement sleeve sweaters.

With trends I really have to be careful to control myself, especially with these because it's a style I REALLY like. Without the little voice in my head reminding me that I do not need a closet of practically identical pieces I would own several of the tiered sleeve sweaters, thank goodness for that voice! For the tiered sleeve look I went with black because it's versatile and since this is such a trendy piece and there's no guarantee this will be in style come next winter I wanted something I would get a lot of wear out of this season. Likewise when buying a bell sleeve cardigan I wanted something I could wear throughout winter and possibly into spring - this sweater with jeans and a comfy tee unde…
