Hooray for Designer Collaborations!

I LOVE it when designers team up with stores to create a lower price point line for us regular folk-in fact it makes me downright giddy.  Missoni for Target was a dream come true, and when I caught a glimpse of the Giambattista Valli for Macy’s line I think I peed my pants a little.  I’ve scoured runway books and studied fashion obediently since I first started out in this industry and with the flux in popularity of color this year (its always popular in my closet), G Valli is one designer I have had my eye on.  So, of course, I had to pick up a few things.  And perhaps one of my favorite fall purchases, is this divine skirt made out of tiny chiffon flower petals.  In fact I love it so much, I have a hard time wearing it because I’m always waiting for the “perfect” occasion .

As I am sure you can tell by the tree and decor, I finally decided the first time I would wear my pretty frock was for Christmas Eve, which seems fitting because it also just happens to be my favorite day of the year.

And as I sit here on a Friday night scouring my closet, sure that I have nothing suitable to wear for date night tonight, I’m thinking maybe it will make another appearance.  Stay tuned!!!
