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.

And so it begins

I've been working on this post for awhile but I wasn't quite ready to share it with the world. Some of you might still be wondering why I'm sharing. Well we're married a year now, we bought the big house in the good school district so I know you're wondering - when are they going to have a baby. So now you don't have to feel awkward asking if we're trying to conceive (TTC) the answer is no - well not yet at least. Right now we're on a plan I'm referring to as pre-TTC.
My Pre-TTC tools - tracking planner, thermometer and prescription  It's awkward to be honest - there's lots of online groups and forums for women TTC but no one really talks about pre TTC, it's like you just wake up and one day say ok, we're now ready to have a baby. But as I've learned, it's really not that simple. I've had conversations with a very few people about this on one hand here I am bitching about how this is something that isn't talked abou…

Gratitude Challenge

So this month I was all set to do the whole gratitude challenge thing  but as I started to think of what things I might post about I started to think maybe this isn't the best idea. Is it possible to do a gratitude challenge and come up with 30 unique expressions of gratitude without humble bragging? My day to day life is pretty boring and we don't have cute kids that provide a constant supply of little daily antidotes to be grateful about and I know that this isn't about picking up 30 material possessions  in my life and posting about them. But even when I look past the "stuff" in my life and more behind emotional and non tangible things it still just doesn't feel right - does the friend with the sick kid really need my post about how #blessed I am with good health popping up in her feed? I think not. 
Maybe I'm being Debbie downer on what's supposed to be a lighthearted and fun social media engagement but I just can't get my heart into it becau…

Shelby Jewel

I really wanted to have this post up yesterday but if you've been following my instagram stories at all you will have seen that I remembered this weekend that I still needed to refinish my dining room table if I had any hopes of using it for Thanksgiving (and yes, I am on track to finish it tonight, Woohoo!) So here I am a day late but not a dollar short with a post on some fun fashion finds. Last week I attended the preview party for a new online boutique started by Memphis Blogger Shelby Jewel. Shelby has beautiful taste so I knew I was interested in checking out her boutique. Nothing says welcome like a glass of Champagne! Racks of beautiful tops Swoon worthy Jackets Pretty Tassel Earrings So, I'll admit I was very nervous about this event, Shelby is very small and most boutique sizes are small as well - I am not. But, I really wanted to see the pretty things and thought hey, you never know. As I predicted clothing is available in S - L but I have found that with some bou…

Vi Peel

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my facial when I turned 23. Then a few years ago I went to a friends Botox party, I was 26 and scared of Botox at the time but I got a TCA peel and liked the results but not the price tag so I bought the solution online and started doing them myself. All was fine and dandy at home until I stopped following the instructions, opps. The peel was supposed to be applied with a cotton pad , I had the genius idea this past march to brush it on. It dripped and got too deep into my skin resulting on uneven peeling.
So I had to wait for that mess to heal before I could get it professionally fixed. I decided to switch to the vi peel because its supposed to be better and hurts less, tca literally produces tear…

Thanksgiving Essentials

 Next week is Thanksgiving and I am soooo excited! Thanksgiving is basically all of my favorite things in one day - chilling in pjs watching the parade, delicious food, family time, and shopping! For the past few years we have gone our for Thanksgiving because the condo was not wheelchair friendly for my grandmother and my dad moved out of town but this year we're going back to having Thanksgiving at home and while I'm sad we won't have my grandma this year I am excited to be cooking the Thanksgiving meal again. In my humble opinion Thanksgiving is no time for healthy eating and since everyone has their own favorites I say bring on the carbs - this is what my menu this year will be: 1. Champagne Turkey 2. Stuffing 3. Green Bean Casserole 4. Sweet Potato Casserole 5. Mashed Potatoes 6. Peas 7. Corn Soufflé 8. Broccoli 9. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 10. Cranberry sauce (from the can of course, I hate it but my family tells me this is the only way to have it) 11. Pie 12. Ma…
