Charlotte Russe Spring 2011: Eastern Bazaar & Journey to Jaipur

For Spring 2011, Charlotte Russe finds its inspiration in far away places. The first 4 photos you'll see here are from the Eastern Bazaar mini lookbook: "Think exotic. Think Morocco. Think dusty, spicy tile prints and textures - layered and wrapped up with a flowy woven scarf."

The second 4 photos are from the mini lookbook Journey to Jaipur: "East meets West when intricate prints and patterns get glammed up with Lurex. There are no borders when it comes to fashion. Namaste."

The collection of dresses, tops, bottoms, accessories and shoes is priced from just $5.50 for a necklace to $39.50 for a printed dress. Look out for these items in stores soon!

Pure Energy for Target Spring 2011 Lookbook

Here's a peek at the Pure Energy for Target Spring 2011 lookbook, which I'm embarrassed to say only showcases four outfits. Alrighty then! Pure Energy is a plus-size line (women sizes 16 and up) which I first wrote about back in 2009 when it made it's somewhat quiet debut. Since then, most of you have probably seen Pure Energy at your local Target. For spring, expect to see floral prints, on-trend denim and well, I'm not really sure what else we can expect. Hope to see more images released soon, if not I will report in person from the racks, smartphone in hand!
