First Look: Tucker by Gaby Basora for Target

Nitro:licious recently shared a sneak peak from the upcoming Tucker for Target by Gaby Basora collection posted by Sarah Parlow, revealing a fleece jumpsuit ($44.99) and signature print dress ($39.99) with reversible quilted vest ($24.99). It's just a tiny morsel from the upcoming collection by the NYC- based designer, which will be available from September 12 through October 17, but it's a delicious morsel at that! I bet Gretchen from Project Runway would approve. Can't wait to see more.

Off the Rack: Leather Jackets, Boyfriend Blazer at Target

Whether you're looking for a new outfit for the weekend or want to get a head start on fall, Target has a few new fashion gems you'll want to check out. First, Mossimo has designed two new faux-leather jackets ($34.99) for fall and they're going fast. The leather-look construction is convincingly real! Other must-have layering pieces include a black boyfriend blazer ($29.99), and soft, lightweight boyfriend cardigans ($14.99) to help you transition your summer clothes into cooler weather. From Merona, I saw lots of classy looking separates and a few adorable dresses, some fully lined which make them perfect for the office. Colorful, coordinating tops and bottoms were placed side by side on the racks, making the task of getting dressed that much easier. I recommend the turquoise embellished top with the chocolate brown/white printed skirt—they go together nicely without being too matchy-matchy which makes the whole look appear more expensive than it actually is. Add sexy heels, modern metal jewelry and you are all set! See anything worthwhile at your Target lately?
