Pixi by Petra Spring 2014 Beauty Collection Preview

Petra Strand

Earlier this week, Target hosted an event showcasing the Pixi by Petra Spring 2014 collection, which is available in stores and online now. I got to meet Petra Strand (above), creator and the brains behind the beauty brand, and her team. They gave me a personal tour through this charming collection and really sold me on, well, all of it. Everything is easy and anyone can use it, which when it comes to makeup, and especially for someone on the go, is a must. One of my favorite items was the brow duo, which has a retractable brow pencil on one side and brow gel on the other. I also love the cheek sheens! You can achieve all kind of looks with Pixi's offerings, the packaging is adorable and best of all, everything is affordable!

LOFT Spring 2014 press preview

At the end of 2013, Loft hosted a preview of their Spring 2014 collection. True to form, Loft is offering a variety of separates and accessories that can be eased into any wardrobe. The palette, while muted, was airy, clean and crisp. The silhouettes are flattering and easily transitioned from work to casual, or vice versa. A desaturated coral anorak and lace pencil skirt in off-white were among my favorite pieces. Spring, we're waiting for you!

Great graphic designs and bold prints shine on everything from classic sportswear to swimsuits, plus lots of essential accessories. Lands' End stays consistent with their canvas bag offerings and personalization of items like preppy polos and button-ups, but have added "fun" as an overall accent to each piece!
