What I'm Wearing: Banana Republic Silk Ikat Twist Strap Dress

Recently Banana Republic sent me this silk ikat twist strap dress ($130) and I did not hesitate to wear it for a day of running errands in the extreme heat. Paired with simple gold sandals and a straw tote (forgot to include it in my photo), this colorful dress proved to be all I needed to stay comfortable while still looking presentable.

Target Announces Josie Natori Lingerie and Loungewear Collection

Target is teaming up with Josie Natori to create a collection of lingerie and loungewear coming October 30. This two-part collection will include camis, tops, bottoms, robes, chemises and more.

Watch the Josie Natori for Target personal video announcement (above) where Josie speaks to this exciting and affordable collection. "I am so excited to be able to bring to the Target guest the East-West sensibility and aesthetic of Natori at very affordable prices," says the designer.

I expect we'll see colorful prints along with refined, feminine silhouettes. Natori is known for filling the gap between racy and frumpy lingerie. I bought my sister-in-law some N Natori pajamas for Christmas last year and she loves them. Can't wait to preview this collection!

The Look for Less: Christian Louboutin 'Lady Daf' Pumps

Christian Louboutin's "Lady Daf" platform pumps are $995. I featured them in a post about the bondage pump trend, a topic which sparked quite a bit of controversy (here).

Love them or hate them, the Lady Daf has a lot of celebrity fans, including Kourtney Kardashian, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian.

If you want this look for less, check out Topshop's Louboutin-inspired "Sugar Mary Jane" platforms for $135. Click the image below for details.

What do you think, is this look starting to grow on you?
