New York Fashion Week is upon us and I honestly have so much on my plate with work and school that I didn’t attend as many shows as I would have liked. I’ll have a recap of my favorite shows a little later this week, but I wanted to post one of the looks that I wore this weekend. As much as I love clothes and shopping I really just put together a real simple look. I’m trying to wear my brights and neons as much as possible before the weather drastically changes. So here was my look on Saturday.

Yesterday I decided to try my luck and head to Target to see if I would be able to snag a few pieces from the highly anticipated Prabal Gurung collection. I loved the bright and vibrant colors from the collection as well as the prints. I decided to get to Target at 8am when it first opened. To my surprise, there was a small line outside (about 10 women). I waited in my car until they opened since the line was so short. As the gate began to rise the women literally ran underneath to run to the collection. I just shook my head in disbelief because there was only 10 people online. The Target that I went to (the location won’t be revealed lol) was practically empty. Some women were grabbing everything and just throwing it in their carts. I refused to act like an animal over clothes, especially since there was enough for everyone. Long story short I tried on about 15 items and left with four.

I had my eye on all of the dresses but these two looked the best, especially the white! You can never go wrong with peplum and pointy toe heels are making a huge comeback. The print on the shoe makes it so versatile and I will be able to wear them with practically anything. I can’t for the spring.

Did you shop the collection? What did you get?

I am a bit obsessed with nails and am constantly on the look out for funky and unique patterns/artwork to try for my nails (I LOVE bold nails).   There are so many blogs/tumblrs I follow for nail inspiration!

Are you ladies feeling any of the current nail trends?  Have you tried any out?

 

 

As promised in my previous  post, here are a few Neon inspired looks for daytime, the office and going out on the town.

Most of these looks are very BOLD and take the neon trend head on (Go bold or go home!!! ;)) however keep in mind that if you want to incorporate neon in more of a subtle way you can use neon items to compliment your look (eg. belts, bags, shoes).

These looks incorporate two big trends for this Season: Neon & Colorblocking.

How do you plan on incorporating neon into your wardrobe??

This is one way I will be wearing neon – my favorite – neon yellow with black and white stripes :):

 

Daytime Neon

 

Lala Anthony was at the Garden Thursday night supporting her booski Carmelo Anthony during Game 3 of the Knicks/Heat Round 1 Playoff Series. Lala rocked a Helmut Lang Sugar jacket, black tank, white and teal Rag & Bone Scuba Skinny Jeans, and pair of Charlotte Olympia wedges.

The jeans are definitely on trend with the color-blocking and neon colors. The simple hoops compliment the outfit very well. You do not want to over accessorize this look because the jeans are definitely a statement.

I would definitely rock this look would you?
