Off the Rack: Versace for H&M

The Versace for H&M collection hit stores worldwide this weekend, selling out in as little as 30 minutes in some locations. In an unprecedented turn of events, H&M invited me to a private shopping event on the eve of the launch at their Fifth Avenue flagship store, where members of the press and other guests could shop the collection early. Dream come true, right? Sadly I couldn't make it into the city so I sent my new writer KC (who you may recall recently covered the Forever 21 spring preview for us) to cover the party in my stead.

Off the Rack: The Perfect Rose Gold Watch at Target

During my last trip to Target, I noticed a series of small boyfriend watches from the Merona line in rose gold (my favorite - couldn't find it online at this time, so check your local store), yellow gold, and gunmetal, priced at just $14.99 each. These look amazing for the price and they're a great way to get that "Michael Kors ceramic watch" look for less. If you love your cheap-chic timepiece and find yourself wearing it every day, then splurging on the real MK might be a good investment down the road. I also spotted a series of faux multi-function watches in black (shown below) as well as white and silver (not shown but you can find them online). A sharp looking watch can become part of your signature look; I still love my Target Merona boyfriend watch and wear it all the time.
