Target is back at it again… this time in home décor for the kiddies! I love Target for darn near EVERYTHING I need from quick grocery list needs (their SIMPLY juices are always priced better than the grocery stores) to cleaning to personal hygiene to toys, bedding, you name it…. Target is my mainstay shopping destination for just about everything!

When I’m feeling like it deserves higher praise for something fancy I found there, I call it Targ`et.  Mostly when I find they do great designer collaborations like the ones they did with Missoni, McQueen, Posen among a few others.  My attempts to walk in Target and walk out with just one or two items that I intended to get always ends with me spending upwards of $100 every trip…I’m like a kid in a candy store in there!

They truly are the affordable source for everything from A to Z.  They recently unveiled their newest home decor brand that is uber-chic and affordable and best of all its for KIDS!

I don’t know about you but as a busy working mom I often do quick fixes to spruce up a room that really needs a full makeover- like bulldozer and a superstar HGTV host to come and make it over type help. But since I never get that lucky I jump at the opportunity to DESIGN ON A DIME with the quickness!

Check out these cute finds:

The brand, Pillowfort, is full of home decor and furniture that can last kids several years and isn’t covered in princesses or superheroes, if you know me well you know I HATE THAT! (hint: my kids clothing line BryceWear on Amazon.com) Anyway, I digress…Pillowcroft has a ton of great pieces—namely lamps, throw pillows, and wall décor. Perfect for adding a little POP to an otherwise dull room with a splash of color, pattern, and whimsy that your kids room or play area might be missing.

Check out some for yourself at your local Target or online. All of the collection is available online.  Happy Shopping!

Rack’em and Stack’em Party!

  • necklacesMix delicates with bolds and add a watch! It’s easy and fail-proof by choosing pieces with similar styles and colors to keep the look cohesive.

Nailing the layered look is not as hard as you think. Small charms and gens add a unique touch. TIP: always make your longest layer the standout piece.
Stone details are a great detail; highly in trend

New News In Nudes

Finally, It’s finally happened! Designers now know NUDE isn’t just one color…. Hip Hip Hooray!!!

unspecifiedI remember, a few years ago happily seeing Donna Karan selling with a variety of quality sheer hosiery in different shades for every skin tone from pale to deep chocolate.

 

Then Christian Louboutin created a line of nude shoes and now FLATS (yaaay! because his stilettos always hurt!) in different shades of “nude”.  I finally can wear a pair of nude shoes that are actually MY skin tone and not Barbie’s. I love Barbie but we don’t do the same “nude” …never have – never will and to be limited to only her shade and call it nude for me was a LIE everyone seemed to just go along with.

christian-louboutin-nude-ballet-flats-collection-2Now others are following suit and “shading” us as we were made in a variety of beautiful hues complimentary of the world of colors we know. A lingerie company named Nubian Skin {hyper link} is a new brand line of intimates dedicated to producing nude-toned pieces for women of color. Women of color no longer need to resort to black bras for their nudes to wear under light clothes. Now we can dare to wear our barely there’s in our actual real shades of pretty.
