OMG….Rodarte for Target!!
Wow! As beautifully covetable as Rodarte dresses are, they’re more works of art than commercial Target clothing fit for mere mortals. But apparently the deal is done, Rodarte for Target is hitting stores 20th December-6th February and prices will range from $9.99-$79.99. A Target spokesman had this to say: “What you’ll notice is an amazing eye for detail. It’s very feminine, yet very modern. The collection incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur. The key with Rodarte is layering.” *Note to self, book flights to America, ASAP!*
Sneak peak of the new issue of Love, courtesy of Vogue. As with the first issue, it looks as if this is from an editorial rather than the cover. Interesting nonetheless, the theme seems to be ‘New Blood: The Young & The Restless’. The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus are said to be in the issue.
