Altuzarra for Target Ad Campaign

Altuzarra for Target ad campaign

While flipping through the 856 page September issue of Vogue today, I came across the Joseph Altuzarra for Target ad campaign starring Eva Herzigova and photographed by Peter Lindbergh. What struck me most was the length (10 pages) and the high-end feel. If it wasn't for the red bullseye, you'd never guess this was an advertorial for a fast fashion collab. Granted, Altuzarra for Target will also be sold online at NET-A-PORTER.COM, so there's that. Check out the look book if you haven't already and get your shopping lists ready for the September 14th launch date.

Decorate by Number: Minimalist Meets Casual Dining Room


Scandinavian dining room inspiration

This weekly column is all about high-style decor on a low budget. This week, we're finding harmony where minimalism and casual-eclectic styles meet. Visit my blog, A Vintage Splendor, for more tips and ideas.

When you think of Scandinavian design, descriptors such as minimalist, streamlined, and functional come to mind. It may seem far from the casual, cool, and eclectic style that belongs to a California aesthetic, but when the two meet, it is a conscious coupling of bold styles that complement one another like never before.

LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Fall 2014 Lookbook


LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Fall 2014 Look Book

If you want a gradual transition to fall, look no further than Lauren Conrad's fall 2014 lookbook showcasing her latest designs for Kohl's. Inspired by her home state of California, the fall collection entitled "Nouveau Romance" mixes feminine pieces with a modern edge that can be worn just about any season. Highlights include a faux leather skater skirt in black or merlot ($35, down from $50), nude strappy "Alina" heels ($60), pleated chiffon midi skirt ($54) and double buckle "Cedar" ankle boots ($80). Once again, I think Lauren has spotted the top trends girls want to wear, from crop tops to the soft pastel color palette, and made it fresh and affordable at Kohl's. Everything here will be available August-September at Kohl's stores and KOHLS.COM. See any pieces you'll be stalking this fall?
